Re: Mercenaries and non-monetary payment
Bit late to the game, but there's one option not really mentioned yet; the foreign 'volunteer'.
The [monster] tribe of X has agreed to 'submit' to a nearby ruling [civilised] group. It's simple; Y amount of [monsters] will be offered as mercenaries per year, and they will behave otherwise the [civilised] will march up and destroy them all for 'breaking the agreement'. The [monsters] have learned from experience that the [civilised] ain't bluffing, and in fact the [monster] elders have come to realise that it's actually not that bad a deal [safety valve etc]. If the 'agreement' is a long-standing one, it might even be part of their society; that a teenage [monster] goes off 'outside', and after a few seasons some of them return - bigger, stronger and with some nifty 'outside' things which immediately jumps them up the [monster] pecking order.
