Would it be possible to use the attack flag even when the hearthlings are not in Fight & Defend stance? I wanted to assign one footman to a party and then send him out to explore (in search of ore veins). Unfortunately, I could only do this while the rest of the population is drafted as well.
Edit: it does seem to work after deleting the party and creating a new one. I will do some test scenarios and see if I can recreate this situation.
