>Ok, let's clarify a few things:

>Scion: A Blooded character, not in the employ of a regent.
>Lieutenant, Blooded: A scion in the employ of an already established Regent
>Lieutenant, Unblooded: A commoner in the employ of an already established

I think the above sums up things rather nicely, actually...

Personally, I don't put a limit on Free actions, hence the name "Free". I
think money is the big limiter on Free actions. Eventually, you WILL run
out of GB's to purchase roads, make decrees, etc etc. When it comes down
to it, the Regent probably isn't writing the speech, but glancing over it,
and making sure it's correct. He's undoubtedly not the one running around
screaming "Hear Yee, Hear Yee!" or nailing notices on miscellaneous trees.

He's also probably not the one actually designing the roads, but just
stating that such a road is necessary, and then appropriates funds. My
point being, that in most cases, Free actions don't require a whole lot of
time, and that's why they're free.
