I assume the loser of a Thanatos siege takes the Thanatos (-VP) card?
Yes, otherwise there may not be enough of an incentive to avoid defeat by either player.
Just to mention another thread suggested, instead of drawing 3 new cards after each siege, draw 5 and keep 3, which sounds like a nice idea.
We are currently playing Lords of Scotland a lot, which is another battle game that is worth checking out.
