Hmmm, in my games I tend to only really hang out in one corner of the map (where the richest port is as they pay the most for loot) and only do quests for the local lords there. I can see myself should the skirmishing against the greenskins or necrophiliacs go badly then I would just abandon the areas I could not defend, pull back to my “home region” and only stay there. It would suck if I was successful but 3/4ths of the map was overrun but I suppose that’s when I would retire and start anew, having learned lessons or whatnot. I don’t know.
I enjoy post-apocalypse games though so living and fighting through the pre-apocaypse to get there might be right up my alley.
