I feel that having a proper claim to abandoned territory is based on more than just who vassalized it (though that is the main criteria). I argued, for example, that I had rights to a couple of claims due to the fact that I had an obvious friendship with the former owner due to our borders touching and him granting me tons of expansion approvals (as observed by the weird shape of my domain). I'm not saying that was why I got that land. I got them because I'm friends with his old suzerain and because I have a big military.

But if Akura is located right next to a domain and has been there since the contested domain was founded then that is justification for a claim. Is it a truer justification than being an abandoned territory's brand new suzerain? Well, power is truth most of the time.

Did you expect a Hague court in a bloody medieval sim?
When you say something like "I should have that domain because we were kinda friends with its previous owner" or "I should have been allowed to take that domain because I live nearby" you just sound silly.

Exactly this. Even if such an argument mattered and he was friends with the domain owner it bears absolutely zero weight, because he has not made that clear in any way or form. At this point I could just claim that the inactive domain owner was my brother, so the domain is rightfully mine. Sounds pretty stupid though, wouldn't you say?

And the "I live close to it" argument just makes me laugh. It's not like we don't live close as well.

Man, walls and towers give a lot of expansion ability. Although I've admittedly been fairly lax about it recently, I just expanded my borders eight times. That I was able to pull all that off without needing consent from anyone other than my own heirs was even more delightful.

Well, sourced some cherries. Now I need apricots and plums.

My fields changed color today, and I got my first harvest! I'm now training 6 new farmers to help out.

Well, my guy died. I guess somebody wandered in while I was off and killed him, though I can't find what caused his death. I didn't create any heirs, so is it time to give up the ghost and begin elsewhere? I don't see how to make a new person even if i wanted to, so I might have to make another account if I even bother, which I probably won't.

If you remember which square you were in, you can see who killed him in the log.

You can always create another heir and claim your domain.  You never run out of heirs.

Type your house name in the search field. Click on "House [your house]" result. Create a heir. Travel to your domain's square and reclaim it. Start building a castle to prevent another assassination. Talk to your neighbours.

Out of curiosity, did you have any allies to avenge your death?

By the way, that's probably the smartest move.  Don't get sucked into this idiotic medieval Farmville.

Yep, that's why I train a ton of em.  That or micro em.  Though microing them is best if you are going to be available.  Micro is best for everything if you are available.  If not then go ahead and train tons.

And use the majority of your tokens to harvest crops, plow new fields, and make hay fields.
