    I don't know if this has been done before (if so I welcome others' ideas), but here's an Asset I came up with. It is inspired by the BRCS Spy Network asset, and uses similar mechanics:

    Diplomatic Embassy

    A regent may use a Diplomacy domain action, DC 20, to establish a permanent Diplomatic Embassy in a foreign court. This can only be done in a foreign province where another regent hosts a Court.

    If successful, the Embassy grants the following benefits:
    1. The regent may make a Diplomacy action to the host regent, as well as to any other regent who has an Embassy there, as a Court Action. The standard cost of 1 GB still applies.
    2. The embassy grants a +2 bonus to all Diplomacy actions in that province.

    Embassies have a seasonal maintenance of 1 GB. If this maintenance is not paid, the embassy dissolves due to lack of funding.

    Regents often station diplomatic lieutenants in embassies to allow them regular negotiations with important foreign rulers. Not surprisingly, the Imperial Court in the City of Anuire hosts more permanent embassies than anywhere else in Anuire.

    I use a similar action, but I require first research into Permanent Embassy

    which involves the administrative controls over a remote agent in diplomacy.

    Sending a diplomat is easy, the rulers say to the diplomat, so X, don`t do

    Y. Permenant diplomats create all kinds of problems. Back and forth

    communication, trust, how to create the rules for what a diplomat can and

    can`t do, to what extent does the agent speak for and act for the ruler in a

    binding way. This administrative improvement is based on the previous

    research (which I assume has been done by every realm in Anuire, Brectur,

    and Khinasi) Ambassador, which unites the functions of the legate and the

    nuncio, the one who may act in the name of his ruler the other who can speak

    in his name. Rjurik rulers (but not guilders) and all Vos rulers have to

    research Ambassadors.
