Each faction and each town has it's own bank of silver that you can't ever touch. But if you own the town you can transfer your own faction's bank of silver into a town. This silver can only be spent on summoning guards or creating vendors. In like spring 2015 there was a huge TB group formed of all the SL enemies (kinda like at the beginning of this year) and they held sigils for about two weeks around march. At some point we planted a guy and took commanding lord from them and drained out the silver by transferring it to a town and spending the silver in every town. Idk why blaise is saying they didn't use guards, they definitely had all the guards out infront of TB castle every night and we fought around them the few times i took a fight on their terms. One thing is for sure, he definitely wasn't extremely butthurt about it, and he definitely didn't piss and moan and cry to the server staff, and he definitely isn't still salty about it a year and a half later. You see, they were just lol'ing about it, is all.
