Summary0009781: Peaceful takeover, but only for one tick - plus announcement spam
DescriptionYou can take over hamlets just by declaring your claim and moving into the storage-area part of the keep. However, your rule will be very short - in fact, as short as it can be: you will lose your ruler status after one tick. On the next tick you'll regain it, lose it again, and so on.

You'll also get spammed with pop-ups for your claim succeeding ten times each time you take a step.

In Legends mode, it looks like this: [^]

Your ruler status is a bit fragile - people will tell you that you rule this site if you ask them, but once you leave the keep, they accept the old lord/lady again.
Steps To Reproduce1. Start as a human hearthperson in a hamlet. You'll be in the keep in the room where the lord/lady hangs out. I'll call this room the "lobby".

2. Talk to the lord (or anyone, really) and claim this site for yourself. Group naming will pop up, just pick anything.

3. Leave the lobby, but don't go outside, just enter a different room in the keep.

4. Once you set foot into the next room, your claim succeeds (about 10 times)! Get ready for hitting Enter a lot.

You get pop-ups inside the keep until you move back into the lobby. There are no problems with going outside.
Additional InformationHere's a save: [^]

It doesn't matter to whom you declare your claim, I first tried it with a random villager who wasn't even in the keep.

I haven't found a way to make this work in towns, it depends on the room configuration of the keep. Keeps in hamlets always have this lobby room separate from the rest of the keep, that seems to be very important.

My guess is that the game gets weirded out by having a claimant and a ruler in the same keep, without any conflict.

Wow, confirming, this is weird. If you move fast enough, or maybe step on the right squares, it even does multiple popups (and more) that you gotta spam through. [^]

After clearing those: [^]

The log spam: [^]

Can confirm. I attacked an overlord and bit him with a poisonous bite. He ran and as soon as he was out of the room, I started getting spam about having control. It stopped when I left the building.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that the owner was still alive?

Got this one too. I had killed the previous lord (a bandit ringleader) and left the keep. After I returned, a day or so later, I got this message spam. A previous lieutenant was the new ringleader, and the spam ended just after I killed him.

I also had the same thing happen to me twice.
In both cases, I started as a hearthperson, claimed the site for myself, and killed the lord.
Got my history in legends mode filled up to the point you have to scroll for 2 minutes to get to the bottom.
Every step I moved inside or near the site i claimed, I got the spam messages.
