Medieval practice of Prisoner taking and ransoms, something to be consider in wargames rules?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-21168437
One soldier claimed to have been taken prisoner 17 times, says historian Dr Remy Ambuhl.
Either he was unlucky or clever.  :)

Apparently ransom was a lot more common then originally thought.
