    Indeed - my issue is purely that switching from RP to bloodline score adds an additional factor to the cost, as a point of bloodline score has differing value based on its current level. I think the...

    It is an asset of the PC that is spent - in an identical manner to spending one's xp or gold - the fact that it is an intangible asset (like xp) is irrelevant to the fact that it was held before the...

    RP vs XP.

    Third party support.
    If others contribute XP, then you need to make a mechanic. If they contribute RP then an existing mechanic is sufficient - vassalage.

    Is RP a real cost?

    Yes, clearly so - spend too much RP on making items and see your domain crumble as opponents use their RP to tear it down. See your bloodline crumble as minor RP losses...
