Actually there is a way Ian. It is radical and so out the box of the normal of take it to protect it. I think Sq31 may know what I am talking about. It was introduced to him by a friend on World 4 I believe. I think that was the world. Having a pocket noble to take it back is part of it, the other part is keep the farms knocked down so that churches are difficult to build in them First thing we do when taking a barb to build a church is spy for that farm that is leveled just right. If that level is not there makes it hard to decide to take it. Especially in a province filled with RED.
