So, I'm newish to the game. I've been playing mindlessly just cutting everything down but I got bored of that. I became invested in the politics of the game and I'm even working on a relationship now. I'm currently in a rut. I'm a Bord lord and I've taken a castle from the vaegirs. The swadian are salty that I kicked their teeth in at the beginning of the game and as soon as I've captured they come in full force. After taking the castle, I've only had 60 men left out of my original 98. Now the swadian are at the doorstep. 680-60. There are no fellow lords near by. To I load an earlier save or do I defend the castle? If so, how can I win?
