Yup, that's definitely the case.Hmm can't believe I never noticed that, though that does explain a lot. Particularly why some Clans are basically a revolving door of Parties. Still it can't be denied that if you have lots of Adults in a Clan you can basically expect that Clan to always have Parties on the map.
You're right, but no one stays in imprisoned that long, so it is a minor thing compared to being dead.afaik being in prison doesn't count as leading a party so: the more clan members the more bak-up parties are deployed. If what you stated is true it means there are no 3 parties as long as the npc are inprisoned
