Sergeant at Arms
not to distract from the topic, but in addition to nobles coming to the player to offer themselves for a price. It would be nice if there would be a NPC (spy master) you could talk to who would have a few names of nobles who are more likely to be persuaded. This would add more reasons to visit the castle scenes. Reasons to visit scenes is another point addressed multiple times on the forumIt's a major frustration for players I see mentioned constantly. People are really sick of having to run around the map asking every lord if they want to defect, without even knowing if they will say yes, while trying to do other things at the same time.
