Usually I side with evil, as I like to play Dark Elves, Daemons... so I send the hostages to Dark Elven claws and 'dispose' of them.
Now I tried Wood Elves, so I sided with Barbarians (as a lesser evil? Or even good?)
I traveled to Barbarian lands and there was this option :
- Dispose of hostages
For some reason, on the fight map, I had to kill every adversary, even Barbarian units.
Was this intended?
(When I do the same with Dark Elves, I have to fight only the 'good' units as I am ally with the evil units)
So it feel off, to kill all units in the case of Barbarians path (who promised to just lock down the emissaries and protect their lives - which sounded peaceful, hence the doubts)
