I have to agree with Mark VanderMeulen - i dont see how a player can get th
opportunity to spend that many of his RPs on just Ruling his Privince
Ratings to higher levels. There are also owners of Law, Temple , and Guild
Holdings in the Regent's realm that may or not continue to supprt him as he
raises his Kingodms Domain Power beyond his Bloodline Strength Score's
ability to yield him more RPs every round. There is a limit to how often a
Regent's Bloodline Strength Score can be raised, and this should also help
limit his ability to Rule his Province Ratings to outlandish levels. Of
course, the odd adventure can keep a Regent out of action during Domain
Turns, as well as can Brigands, Monsters, and other random events.
There should be too many other things going on a campaign for a Regent to
be able to spend all his RPs Ruling his Provinces and Holdings, and raising
his Bloodline.
