I am a newcomer, and have a few questions regarding the British Civil War rules. I have seen the criteria for increasing score, but are those all-encompassing? For example, would destroying a regular enemy building give the same amount of points as destroying their headquarters? Additionally, can major popularity shifts for a side impact their score? Additionally, how are victors of duels/skirmishes/battles determined? As taking hits are completely up to the writers, is there no way to keep both sides in check? Are character skills used in consideration of this (personally, I think this would be good. Players can write their own story, but something too unrealistic for their character wouldn't be allowed)?
Lastly, there are a lot of people who are technically with the NDS simply because they are neutral. Would you still earn points if they are convinced to, become a committed member (not neutral, agrees with Ministry and anti-Liberamach)? Just because I feel like having them be fully on your side is more beneficial to the faction than then being neutral: pro-ministry people won't help or give away to Liberamach, and pro-Liberamach people won't help/follow the Ministry.
