Hey guys, would really appreciate some help on this question. I'm sure it's been asked before here, but I couldn't find it!
We hunted and searched for a definition of a 'city', 'razed', 'ruined' and 'stronghold' or any rules to help us with our question, but to no avail. Our question is this:
There's a season card that performs an influence bid in which the highest bidder destroys a city. Because the city is no longer there (it's flipped over to it's "ruined" side, but still remains on the city hex), can players then build a stronghold in that same hex? The rules state you can't build a stronghold where a city is so.... can you now, in this case?
We'd really appreciate the help, it's our only question that we have no idea on how to answer - we're usually pretty good at figuring this stuff out, FAQing, reading into what the spirit of the rules intended, house ruling, being fair, etc. and so on.
