You've *almost* got it. You may train more than three nobles in a single villages. You can train *all* your nobles in a single village, if you so desire.I will admit I have yet to play on a world with packages. But it sounds like something someone came up with after a long night in a dark room while trying to fly a kite. Talk about convoluted. Only 1 noble in a village per Academy level? Why? Whats the point of storing packages if you can only have at most 3 nobles per village?

Coins seem more flexible, and they certainly make more sense. Then again, once I've tried it I may change my mind.

The total number of potential nobles is equal to the total number of academies you have (each level is considered an academy, so an L3 academy is considered as THREE academies), less the total number of villages you have taken (total villages minus one), less the total number of nobles you have. This limit applies to the TOTAL number of nobles across ALL villages, but places NO limit on how many nobles you can build in a SINGLE village, so long as that number is below the total number of potential nobles. If your noble limit is seven, you can build all seven of those nobles in one village.

Scenario time again:

Scenario 1: Single Village

Village 1: Level 3 Academy, 3 nobles

Notes: You have one Level 3 academy, limiting you to a total possible nobles of three. You've built those three nobles, so you cannot build another.

Scenario 2: Two Villages

Village 1: Level 3 Academy, 2 nobles

Village 2: Level 1 Academy, no nobles

Notes: You've taken your second village. You now have one L3 academy, and one L1 academy, for a total potential of FOUR nobles. You've taken one village, bringing that number down to THREE potential nobles. You already have two nobles, which brings that number down to ONE potential noble. You can build this noble in either village. The fact that village 1 has an L3 academy does NOT mean you can only build three nobles in that village.

Scenario 3: Two Villages, Part Two

Village 1: Level 3 Academy, 3 nobles

Village 2: Level 2 Academy, no nobles

Notes: You've upgraded your academy in village two to L2, allowing for a total of FIVE nobles. You've taken that second village, bringing the total down to FOUR. You have three nobles, leaving you with ONE potential noble. You may build this noble in EITHER village.

Scenario 4: Seven Villages

Village 1: Level 3 Academy, no nobles

Village 2: Level 3 Academy, no nobles

Village 3: no Academy, no nobles

Village 4: no Academy, no nobles

Village 5: no Academy, no nobles

Village 6: no Academy, no nobles

Village 7: no Academy, no nobles

Notes: You've used all the nobles you had built to take more villages. Unfortunately, you wasted your time taking barbarian villages, and none had academies. Even worse, they spent all their time building up their Headquarters to level 29, and the smithies are at a dismal Level 8.

You have a total of SIX academies. You have a total of SEVEN villages. You CANNOT build a noble, until you have more academies. You won't be expanding for a week or two...sucker...

An aside, though I think you know this: packets are universal. You can store a packet in Village 1, but use it to build a noble in Village 2.

Hope that helps.
