Bump - shoud bug is still active - i just came looking in the forums to see whats up. I guess i took over the town, since i saw a city in the background of the tactics combat, however, the fight was very easy - the spiders i fought my way through to get the city were more dangerous. I only figured out afterwards that i must have taken the darkling city, which promptly vanished after the battle. It looked more like a loot camp than a city in the world map.
No uber darkling to defend the city ?
