    Its been confirmed many times over, only successful attacks can spread plague. Wording in guide is incorrect.

    When I played undead last age the only time I inflicted someone with plague was during a Trad March. I used conquest alot as it was part of a strategy I was playing around with. I also believe the undead losses were set to normal during conquest hits vs normal hits. I have gotten plague by attacking a province that had been infected. I haven't seen a bounce inflict someone before but it could be similar to hostility meter in the way the probability works.

    The guide used to read:

    The Plague
    The Undead are a unique race of creatures who carry a rare disease known in Utopia simply as The Plague. Each time an Undead province -- or any province infected with the Plague -- successfully attacks or is attacked by another province, there is a small chance they will transmit The Plague to that province. While infected with The Plague, the province will have no population growth. Due to illness, your military will have trouble defending your land and tax collection will be hampered (-15% Military Defense; -15% Tax Collection). The Plague will naturally be cured, on average in 10 to 12 Utopian Days -- at most, no more than 1 Utopian Month. The Nature's Blessing spell also has a chance of curing the plague from all your lands.


    Now it reads:

    The Undead carry a rare disease known simply as The Plague. Any time your army meets an infected army from another kingdom, you risk contracting it. The Undead are highly contagious, and spread the plague easily, whereas the chances of contracting it from any other race are greatly diminished.


    Makes me think that it is possible now.

    I'm fairly certain I remember the plague being adjusted so that contraction rates were modded by how much you bounced with. So a bounce with 50% needed to break would have 50% less likelihood of spreading the plague. I don't remember that mechanic ever being changed.
    This^^ This is the first age I have not played Undead in ages. Raze bounces, Conqs, bushes, trads, abducts, plunders, you name it. The chance to flu your opponent increases ratio of offense:defense sent; your chances of dropping the flu on a 1 soldier bounce is close to nil, same attack with 51% is greater, 75% even better, send 104% for best chance. Next question.

    Just to muddy the waters a bit, I have seen logs of DavidC saying bounce doesn't give plague. Then again, he also told me human's wpa penalty didn't used to affect self-spells (spoiler alert, it did).
