The Untamed Wilds
Strategic warfare: Encountering hostile forces or fortifications
A visible unit cannot move through a province that contains hostile units without engaging them in battle. If a unit enters a province and finds that it contains hostile units, it may either stay and fight or (if its movement rating allows) retreat back to the province from which it came.
Similarly, a hostile army cannot easily pass through a fortified province. In order to pass through a fortified province, the province’s fortifications must be neutralized or conquered. A province’s fortifications can be neutralized by putting them under siege. It requires a significant attack power of units per fortification level to neutralize a province’s fortifications. For each season of continuous siege, a province’s fortification level is permanently reduced. See table below for details.
Multiple regents can each hold province fortifications. When under siege by hostile forces, allied regents may choose to add their fortifications levels when defending.
An attacker can also choose to attempt to take a province’s castle by storm. Details on taking a fortification by storm are presented in the section on tactical warfare.
