I have a question. Well I'm playing Earth1000AD and this is the first time i've ever had vassles and people capitulated to me. Ok I'll tell you whats happened in my game and how I got my Vassles. I start as the Jappanese. I immediatly prepare for war with Korea, I have six galleys full of samurai and cats. I decleare war capture two city destroy one and all he has is one city in the Pillipian isles he capitulates to me. I now find Genghis khan hes at war with Qin. I get a army ready to fight Qin. But I deside to take Cambodia before going to war so I have an edge. One turn one of my ships finds Mansa Musa I say hi go into the trade section and I ask him what he wants to become my vassle he says he'll become my Vassle for nothing so I immediatly accept the deal give him some free tech he has +7 me with! So now I have Grenadiers and Genghis makes peace with Qin and Qin begins to move his hevally fortified men out so I decleare war bombard his citys with Frigates drop off with Galleons I have a GG and about eight other men attack one of his citys and I win with only loosing three guys. he bombards my city with his Trebs and pillages the next turn I drop another four guys off and destroy his treb and musketmen near the city I just took from him. Then he sends men near Cambodia and I reinforce my army there and take another one of his citys he now has two citys left after I destroy his army near Cambodia I capitulate him and take one of his citys in the peace treaty he now has one city smashed between india mongolia and me. I'm just wondering if getting vassles this easy is normal I'm playing on prince and aggresive AI. I don't know why Mansa vasslised? My only guess is because i'm the secound strongest civ in the world and he lives near the strongest i'm also the most advanced and he really apreciates me giving him free techs. I also want to know if the Capitulated people came leave my empire I think if they get 50% of empires size they can leave but none are near that size I have maybe fifteen citys and Mansa only has five and Qin and Kong only have one city I was also wondering if I demanded a resouce from one of the people that's caped to me if he can leave because I really want Oil.
