502 4/18/2020 12:06:00 PM 1634-1635 Protestant Change Victory Points -2: from 23 to 21
501 4/18/2020 12:06:00 PM 1634-1635 Protestant Message Hi Gary
Unfortunately (for me) agreed - the move is perfectly legal, however, Nurnberg is an independent city (1 VP value) and thus not counting towards Upper Palatinate. You still control 2 (Schweinfurt, Bamberg) out of 3 required cities, control of Upper Palatinate is still Protestant until you capture Wurzburg.
500 4/17/2020 3:41:00 PM 1634-1635 Catholic Change Victory Points +3: from 20 to 23
499 4/17/2020 3:41:00 PM 1634-1635 Catholic Message Success so +1VP for Nurnberg and +2Vp for control of Upper Palantate
