Proposed Canon

Instead of croaking an enemy, a Unit can attempt to capture it. A Unit that is captured is in the possession of the capturing Side.

A captured Unit takes Turn with the Side that captured it.WoT-2786759 A Unit's upkeep is paid by the capturing Side, and so the food tends to be lower quality.

Capturing for intent of forcing a Unit to change Sides is generally reserved for Casters, who are rare and valuable, and not Warlords, whose duty and loyalty make them unlikely to join their captors. Warlords may be captured for interrogation purposes. It is unknown if basic troops can be captured.
