a question about a parish steward

Post by andreyguy »

hey guys, been playing for some time now and something that really * me off just happend,

a guy who was the parish steward since....i dunno, 3 months for now or so got * off when in the recent election i was elected to be the steward, he then attacked his own parish, stole all the gold and then re elected to be the parish steward again

question is, is that okay? i read the game rules and it doesnt say anything about it but it seems like a really terrible thing to do to your own parish

Hmm, what do you feel would be an appropriate punishment for raiding your own parish? :?

As I understand it, only a capital army can raid another capital for gold. I'm a little confused here. Some people do tend to over react when someone so much of thinks of a parish without them as a steward though.

But technically he was stealing it from himself because he was the intended steward.

Would anyone mind letting me know how you do that, Ive never seen that as a option for anything outside of capitals. Or perhaps share the log? Pretty please :).

From what I understand, the parish in which the OP resided was controlled by another player until the OP voted himself in. When this happened, the previous steward(and rightful steward by unpublished game law) attacked his previous parish with another parish army.

I don't really understand the 'rightful steward' comment. Isn't the whole point that stewards are democratically elected? If the electors of the parish choose a new steward by voting for them, then they by definition are the rightful steward. I can understand someone being aggrieved if they got monked out, but if a majority of the villages in the parish want a new steward then that's their choice. Otherwise we're in a position where the first person in has a claim to the parish forever.

Thats why I left W-2. Everyone thought they owned the parish without majority votes. One player could have 1 village and be steward while another has 10 villages and not allowed to be steward even though they got majority votes

Politics in this game can be frustrating at times I agree Northumberland. I personally believe majority rules when it comes to votes and monks included ( thats the game ) .

Only true real solution . Join a local faction in the area and ask if there is a parish you can have in the region. Usually once the game is established and lands claimed by houses, only way to get a parish is when war breaks out and you capture an enemies parish
