The inventory is what you carry with you.
Your inventory is limited based on your Experience level.
- 100 food, 1 swarming colony, 1 ant eater
- 200 food, 2 swarming colonies, 2 ant eaters
- 300 food, 3 swarming colonies, 3 ant eaters
You may carry as many warriors as you want, but the warriors require food and will eat from the food in your inventory and start to die if out of food.
Over time, food goes bad, ant eaters die etc.
