I've mentioned this idea elsewhere and the origin is credited to Ten Kulch.

When the inactive limit has been reached (30 or 90 days) the player is given an Abandoned tag similar to players who willingly abandon their cities.  

Additionally, consider selecting one or more of the following...

A. All of the player's cities are sent a siege force from a local (NPC/faction) hub with the intent to raise.  A holding siege is still possible but you'll have to do so while fending off NPC sieges and raise attempts.  The siege force should be a randomly generated value ranging from 1 times to 10 times the current population of the town.

B. Only those cities with a holding siege remain and all other cities experience the "poof" when the inactivity limit is reached.  One siege on one town should not preserve all of the towns previously held by the former player.

C. Any abandoned city experiences a decay.  Even with a holding siege the city building and resources decline at a steady rate (perhaps 1% per hour) until reaching zero when the city completely disappears.

Community feedback can help improve the idea!
