How To Cheese A Siege
Sieges can get messy and you do not have a lot of options when surrounding a city and trying to take it for yourself. Interestingly there is a way in which you can take over relatively quickly. Certain settlements have gate towers that have a blind spot right in front of the gate. You can have your hero head over to the gate and then kick it open allowing you to smash open the door early on and have your forces do the rest.
