I'm almost sure this happent to you sometimes...or lot of times like me. The leader don't looks very important to buy fates and the warband without him...is more or less like begin the game again. Then i think why i can share the gold between all my bands? I played lot of time to get all those gold...and items! But now all is lost because the band became a trash and need pay to continue with it. I think could be a great idea share items and gold beteween bands. I would help to keep players, because you don't need start from very begining each time you lose the game.
