Agreed - far too easy to pull unsuspecting nobles out of their
castle, and do something nasty to them!

I still make errors on my turns; always when I fill it in in a hurry.
This seems fine to me and rewards, by a very little, those who
consistently make more effort. Overall, I don't have any real problems,
although I must admit my main error was not including enough 'move out's
when in the playtest I had several towers in a castle in a city...having
a default for that seems to work well for movement.
