    Yep. Utterly disruptive to an overall power-increasing alliance. Extremely powerful families might have the connections/resources to draw on the most powerful types of magic to remedy the situation, b ...

    Sure. Raiding forces did that all of the time. With no hope of successfully taking the city, ravaging the surrounding area would result in them simply being paid to leave.

    There is no slope. "Relatively level sward" sward could mean a *slight* slope, but not a slope rising 25 feet over 100 feet. That would be a very steep incline (14 degrees); the kind that would have t ...
