Its true in some cases it might actually help to destroy someone's villages, but there is an emotional aspect to the game as well, just check the forum posts on this exact game out for evidence of that  Angel 

I think we have to accept some people, myself among them, might destroy the dominant kingdoms PCs out of spite, or because that's literally the only thing they can do to influence the game,  even if its not entirely helpful to stop the leader.  There are a lot of behaviors I see that are not strictly logical, rational or strategic, none the least of which is someone might just want the game to end so another one starts faster.

Battle between the 1st Red Dragon army group and the 1st Tyrant army group in the plains
              of area NP:
     
                                                 Red Dragon                                   Tyrant

                   Lord Commander Glint of Death   Marshal Wog of the Pits
                   Lord Commander Tyranis          Major General One Eyed Drog
                   Major General Ra Decoranis      Captain Snorg

                                        Wizards
                       Adept   Maz the Firecast     Power-4 The Firewielder (Wraith)
                     ------------------------------------Power-2 Kraznik
                       ----------------------------------Power-1 Ugli Borfnox

                                        Brigades
                    6 Red Dragons Elite            3 Tyrant Veteran
                    1 Red Dragons Veteran          7 Tyrant Regular
                    1 Red Dragons Regular          3 Trolls Regular
                    1 Phoenix Veteran              1 Ogres Veteran
                    2 Great Bats Elite            15 Orcs Regular
                    2 Great Bats Veteran           7 Zamorans Green
                    -----------------------               5 War Machines Regular

                                      Combat Factors
                         Good Leaders              Very Good Leaders

                                    Tactical Selection
                      Flanking Attack              Determined Attack
     
     
    The 1st Tyrant morale was boosted due to the plentiful number of Orc brigades within their
    ranks. Due to the ruthless nature of the Red Dragon, the Tyrant forces became weakened as
    they succumbed to their fear. In the first hour of morning, with a frightening and
    deafening roar, the 1st Red Dragon army group advanced upon the advancing lines of the 1st
    Tyrant army group under Marshal Wog of the Pits. Across the field, the Tyrant's forces saw
    the banner of the Red Dragon 1st group, it's pride. The Tyrant fielded its pride: its 1st
    group. As the attackers flew in with a thunderous sound above the grassy knolls, the first
    missiles sang out.

                                 - Long Range Missilers -

    The erratic whipping winds from a magical storm reduced missile damage on both sides. The
    long range Red Dragon intense fiery breath and the short bows and mercenary missilers of
    the Tyrant force initiated their attack. The Red Dragon forces imposed minor damage upon
    the Tyrant ranks while the Tyrant imposed minor casualties to their enemy.

                                 - Short Range Missilers -

    The erratic whipping winds from a magical storm reduced missile damage on both sides. The
    short range Red Dragon intense fiery breath and the mix of missile troops of the Tyrant
    force initiated their attack. The Red Dragon ranks imposed light casualties upon the
    Tyrant ranks in return, the Tyrant dealt out minor damage to their enemy.

                                       - Magic -

    Red Dragon mages dismounted just beyond the range of defending bowmen and began an
    elaborate incantation. Adept Maz the Firecast threw back his hood and gestured in an
    animated fashion which caused his image to disappear from the battlefield! Tyrant wizards
    dismounted scarcely beyond the range of defending bowmen and began an animated spell.
    Incanting forcibly The Firewielder's presence arcane impacted the course of the
    engagement. Blinding light shot forth from him. Power-4 wizard The Firewielder threw back
    his hood and gestured in an animated fashion. Looked upon the heavens and gestured
    violently. Suddenly winds of gale force drove across the battlefield, reducing the
    accuracy of enemy missiles by about half, but also reducing the accuracy of our own
    missile troops. Power-2 wizard Kraznik slowly spoke in an arcane language, gestures
    building to a crescendo. With a dazzling display of images in the air, the leader of the
    opposing force is mezmorized and cannot move! Power-1 wizard Ugli Borfnox threw back his
    hood and gestured in an animated fashion. He sought through his magic to stun the enemy
    commander, but was unable to do so. Mages were not a significant factor in the battle.

                                      - Artifact -

    Waving in the wind, the Renowned Standard bolstered the Red Dragon troops with hope during
    the battle.

                                       - Charge -

    The battle seemed to favor the Tyrant kingdom at this early juncture, and their forces
    pressed forward. The Red Dragon now executed their flanking maneuver and succeeded in
    flanking the Tyrant group. The effects in the ensuing charge were profound, and retreat
    for the 1st Tyrant would be perilous. Now Lord Commander Glint of Death beckoned the Red
    Dragon death-bringing winged attack down upon the mix of cavalry and charging heavy
    infantry of the Tyrant. The Red Dragon forces imposed appreciable damage upon the Tyrant
    forces in response, the Tyrant claimed light casualties against the enemy.

                                       - Melee -

    The Red Dragon force maintained a distinct advantage and victory now appeared within their
    grasp. The dragons now landed, shaking the earth, grim determination on the face of each
    they met in heated, blood-stained battle. The Red Dragon enormous piercing fangs
    confronted the Tyrant humanoid masses to determine the outcome of the battle. The Red
    Dragon ranks claimed noticable damage upon the Tyrant forces while the Tyrant imposed
    noticable damage against the enemy.

                                      - Combined -

    Hour after hour passed, yet none could tell which side would be the victor since both
    forces were evenly matched. Despite all that had preceeded at this moment, the battle
    outcome was still in doubt. Now all remaining troops of all types hurled themselves into
    the thick of battle to settle matters in decisive fashion. The battle continued long past
    all expectations. By now, the full remaining compliment of each force had been hurled into
    the fray, feverishly struggling and bleeding these long hours seeking the glory of
    victory. The Red Dragon razor sharp talons challenged the Tyrant humanoid masses to decide
    the battle. The Red Dragon forces dealt out significant damage upon the Tyrant lines in
    return, the Tyrant dealt out noticable casualties against the enemy.

                                     - Conclusion -

    With higher than expected losses, Lord Commander Tyranis had no choice but to order the
    Red Dragon force to withdraw. The Red Dragon showed good composure in their withdrawal,
    minimizing losses. Red Dragon casualties were put at 49.69%. All Red Dragon leaders
    survived the battle. Fighting gloriously was Glint of Death, who again has won further
    glory. He is now a Warlord. The toll of battle has lowered the group's morale. Tyrant
    casualties were put at 51.24%. All Tyrant leaders survived the battle. Impressing his
    peers was Wog of the Pits, who once again has won further glory. He is now a Grand
    Marshal. Snorg showed great courage and has been recognized as a Captain Major. All the
    Tyrant wizards survived the fray. An Tyrant brigade of Regular experience fought bravely
    and have been elevated to Veteran status. Awarded elevation was an Tyrant brigade. They
    are now a Veteran brigade. An Trolls unit was awarded promotion to Veteran status. Earning
    promotion was an Trolls brigade. They are now a Veteran unit. An Orcs unit was awarded
    promotion to Veteran status. An Orcs brigade of Regular experience battled valorously and
    have been promoted to Veteran experience. Earning elevation was an Orcs brigade. They are
    now a Veteran unit. Earning distinction was an Orcs brigade. They are now a Veteran
    brigade. Earning elevation was an Orcs brigade. They are now a Veteran unit. Awarded
    distinction was an Zamorans brigade. They are now a Regular brigade. An Zamorans unit
    earned promotion to Regular status. An War Machines brigade of Regular experience battled
    bravely and have been promoted to Veteran status. The troops are eager for more victories:
    morale is up!

Congrats to the Tyrant. While we a certain that we contributed in no small measure to the victory due to ill fed dragon legions ... our hats are tipped deeply for the win.

Painted Man - I thoroughly enjoyed our tit for tat this game - it brought a lot of entertainment. Thank you for being a worthy foe! Look forward to being on the same side of a line in the sand at some point in the future.

Sadly (for the Gnomes), I never once lacked food. In most turns I was double-feeding and double-paying to offset the regional spells, which ended up mostly as a wash. I didn't build up troops numbers but focused more on quality, which showed in the final battle vs. the tyrant at my 13 vs. his 41.

I was actually surprised to not have seen more coordination from you and SO. You both ended up taking a simliar route and hiding on the water, but I think there was a lot more potential for you two to coordinate. I never ran into regional spells or domes (or really anything) in Triumvia, which surprised me. You definitely did more to keep me out of the region at first (and actually pushed me into SO territory). Strylian stopped just short of rubbing my belly as I took his stuff.
