This is a change I made recently (I thought I sent out lots of mail
about it). Take a look at your nobles who know Archery; they should
all have 50 more missile points than they used to.

It would add slightly to their defense, but is mostly a scenic addition.

Agreed that the scale is an issue. I was thinking of allowing several
underground rooms per province. Yes, it would be possible to tunnel
to another province, but it's not clear it would be a faster route --
more likely slower.
