Just started playing this game and think it is awesome. Just have a couple of questions.
Can anyone please help clarify for me the process of handover of a city after capturing an enemy stronghold?
Question 1: When a stronghold is destroyed and the defeated baron must give up one city of their choice what do they do if there is a noble in the city?
- treat the noble as though it has retreated - potential for mercs to disband
- leave the noble in the same area (but it is said not to be 'in' the city) - easy to recapture
- kill noble - seems a little extreme
- move noble to another owned city
Seems rules say nothing about this. As city has not really been defeated but merely given as a ransom.
Also is it possible to raze a city obtained in this way? As this would be my preference as it would often be difficult to defend such as city, so the reward would be very short term… unless near end of a round.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
