According to the Book of River Nations, a company of 100 men (a unit of 100 men is traditionally referred to as a company) costs 1 point of consumption -- and the "mercenary" special ability sez 1,000gp can be spent in leiu of that point of consumption. Since Hal wants to outbid Pitax for the service of the mercs in Fort Drelev, he'll boost that by 20%, for 1,200gp/month. If there are 100 men willing to serve Hal at a 20% premium, a project budget of 9,098gp should sustain that company of mercenaries for 7 months, with nearly 700gp leftover to spend on bonuses and sundries over that time. (Hal has a reputation for fair and generous to maintain, after all...)

How many mercenaries are in Fort Drelev? Of those, how many are willing to serve Hal? Of those willing to serve, how many are *suitable* for service in a decent community (major scumbags will be rejected)? Can Hal recruit a full company from the mercs in Fort Drelev? Are there even more mercenaries that that? Hal will recruit two companies if there are enough willing and suitable mercenaries around, even though his project money will only last half as long. Eventually, these forces will be paid for through kingdom consumption, but with the recent annexations there are no consumption points available for the next few months.

Being the river kingdoms, most of the mercenaries have either already a) fled back to Pitax or b) fled south back to the other River Kingdomw or c) headed west to find work in Brevoy.

In truth there is no shortage of armed men in the River Kingdoms - and so it's going to be nigh impossible to supply-starve Pitax. Ultimately, you would have to attack them economically or military - in particular, disposing of their King is the traditional way of destabilizing a powerbase in the River Kingdom.

However, starting to build up your military forces is not a terrible plan. You can guarantee tensions will start to run high after the liberation for Drelev.
