I don't even have time to do a proper siege, every two days a kingdom declares war on me. I cannot develop the kingdom, or do anything other than battle and battle, or seek nobles to make peace. Also, getting nobles for my side is very difficult. If I ask them to change sides, they always tell me to ask the clan chief, who is never anywhere. And if I defeat an army, I take 5 noble prisoners, but I can't speak to them in order to they can switch to my side. So the strong kingdoms have 200 nobles and a very large force, but I have to deal with a maximum of 6 or 7 parties for all my fiefs, who are 33. It's crazy.
