I always thought that Stone of Destiny quests should be [deploy in these province] instead of [capture settlement]. Many times that the quest select major factions settlement. I don't dare to wake a war with them for 2000 gold or little buffs exactly. Also this should be searching mission than expansion, isn't it? If you change to [deploy in these province], it would be better. I will trespass them for a while and return or asking their [Military Access] is fine too.
The last thing is Stone of Destiny final reward. Its buff should be more effective and unlimited duration, not just 20 turns.
SHUT UP GIVE US GHORGON!!!!!
