Battle Tactics, Part One(a)

I've decided, in retrospect, to talk about the other stances, since I've been convinced of their usefulness.

Hold ground forces your troops to stand their ground, and not return fire even if fired upon. Defensive stance is similar to Aggressive, except that your troops will only stray a short distance from their original locations. Good for defending an area, without worrying too much about troops getting lost, or straying far enough away to get picked off one at a time. Raze stance is like aggressive, except that your troops will target buildings as a preference over other targets. Raiding is, again, like Aggressive, except that economic targets take precedence. Citizens, caravans, merchants and resource gathering buildings are usual choices.
