New idea- General hostages

Say you fight a battle and your general runs away. Rather than have him die on the campaign map, lets have him be captured by the enemy. Same deal for prisoners: you can release him, kill him, sell him, or try and convert him.

    This works will for historical titles, but in warhammer the problem is that most of the factions would just kill the opposing general in the first place haha, none of the factions really get along that well besides humans and dwarfs

    or reason burns or acid bruises anyone,

    Could work for the Empire. You capture an Elector Count and only release him when he either submits or at the very least strikes treaties with you.

    Empire for other imperial, bretonians, dwarves and kislevites
    Bretonnia for other bretonians
    Dwarves for other dwarves

    The other factions in game would jsut kill the other generals outright

    How it used to work. And captured Generals were worth a lot of coin.

    I would have advocated for Med 2 system, if it didn't throw peasantry and noblemen in the same cup and didn't release them fully armed. Seriously, who would pay ransom for peasants with pitchforks?
