The naive conqueror of territory imagines that once the shooting is over and the land has been overrun, the booty automatically flows to the victor in a simple mop-up operation. Au contraire, the extraction of material goods, though perhaps not as thrilling as the actual fighting, is an operation that requires a good deal of careful planning of its own in order to get the most out of the investment in munitions, soldiers, and propaganda, thus motivating the latest article here on the site: How to pillage a city. It pains me to think back on the numerous occasions where some delicious bauble has been there for me for the taking, and in the flush of victory has gone astray whether due to the malice and greed of underlings (who have in fact all received their rightful rewards at this time) or to simple inattention. There is no reason for anyone to fall into the same mistakes as past despoilers, so we have listed a few of the most common tips and pitfalls that can ruin what can and should be a triumphant Bacchanalian debauch that one has worked so very hard to achieve.
