1) I'm not sure 100% what you mean by refuse me to have it.
Do you mean he storms out of the council?
If you storm out of the council you do not gain any bonuses from the votes, troops, money, etc. They also do not get any penalties such as taxes.
It does not effect other players benefits/penalties gained from the council.
2) Yes you can.
Thanks for your help! Yes storming out of the council I meant.
It's nice to know that you can give this office to any noble on neutral ground but I couldn't find it anywhere in the rulebook.
Good day! Love this game, just a little bit frustrated because I don't have the expansion...
