Hi! I'm wondering if the number of people is fixed from the outset or if more people are "produced" during the game. So, yeah, that's my question I guess.

You have an unlimited free supply of carriers (and also recruits, for those tribes that use them) in all your warehouses. Whenever carriers are used to populate a road or to be turned into some other worker, they are replenished for free.

Other workers are produced as needed, with no limit on how many you can have. Some worker types cost only a carrier, so they are effectively free; others require a tool which has to be produced by a toolsmithy when your starting tools have run out. The in-game encyclopedia lists the cost for each worker.

We have an open feature request about letting the player (or the scenario) limit how many of a specific worker you can have.
