I wouldn't suggest putting a sizeable force in a fort unless you just absolutely feel you must hold it. It will help with the siege tests and make assaulting the fortress damn near impossible if you stick like 15-20K men in it, but that's also a lot of men to lose to surrender. It's worth putting the little garrisons in though, as they'll make any assaults against the fort costly for the defender for a minimal investment on your part.

In short, kinda depends. If you have another large army around and want to tie down the besieger, maybe. Otherwise, probably not worth it to have more than the base garrison.

Regarding initiative, I'm not 100% sure how it functions beyond it determines who goes first. According to the manual, the unit with the higher initiative goes first in each phase (bombardment, combat, pursuit)

Alternatively, a fortress can be a good place for a battered army to hold up in until reinforcements arrive. But, I agree that it should only be done under specific conditions, as it can be a quick way of having an army isolated.

This is largely the CK2 group, correct?? I think it's time to move this thread out of the Game Finder forum. I think we've attracted all the guys we're gonna get and will just have to live without a Prussia...and possibly a Sweden.

Fair point. We'll move it back to the 9th just to avoid complications.
