No. I just gravitated back to it ... again. It's fun and yet weirdly comforting with its familiarity.
I picked back up with an older (mid-twentyish level) character and tried to remain neutral to and through the Zann invasion. The poor Falcons could barely defend themselves, and lost three of their castles. Their ineffective marshal could barely gather half of the realm's lords, so they would lose any encounter with the invading squads. And neutral me with maybe 150-or-so in my warband, I had to flee ahead of them as well. I eventually had opportunity to take Falconwatch castle, which I did, and started my own kingdom. I was hoping the Zann invading forces would take Fountain Hall too (so I could "rescue" it for myself), but they stopped short with only having taken the three castles. So then I pretty much had to join the Falcons as a vassel because my kingdom was deep in Falcon territory, and I didn't have sufficient defense forces against a determined realm to reclaim their old territory (not to mention that my right to rule credentials were pretty poor).
So now every other nation except the Falcons are at peace/truce with the Zann, and we're bearing the full weight of the attacking Zann lords (the invasion is long passed, and they're behaving like a normal realm - but with each lord still having massive warbands and spearheads in tow). I started throwing captured Zann lords in my prison and taking the honor hit when refusing ransom offers just to keep their numbers down. If Field Marshall Gunnar doesn't sue for peace soon, I fear we'll all be cut down by attrition - death by a thousand paper cuts.
