    What stops em? Continuation

    In respone to my own mail I have this to say:

    All your points are well taken and I agree entirely, it is not THAT
    easy.

    But.....


    What about the Gorgon?

    He has had plenty of time to accumulate RPs and GBs.
    He has been ruling his domain for a couple centuries and, as I recall,
    has at least one province thats a plain.
    He has a huge army and so who would think of trying to counter his
    sucess roll (why not just invade the Gorgon's Crown?)
    He is not stupid.
    a level 10 province would yield tons of Gold and RPs for him (more blood
    power) and would make mustering units easier for him.

    What's he to gain from it? Quite possibly the source is more valuable to
    him. Additionally, remember, he's more interested in maneuvering behind the
    scenes. He tried the all out assault tactic eons ago, and it didn't work.
    Mayhap a province that large would scare HIS neighbors and cause them to
    unite. Remember he likes the countries of Anuire divided and opposed to
    each other. Even the might of the Gorgon would unlikely stand against the
    united might of all Anuire.

    and destroy the sources !!!!!! He doesn┬┤t need the provinces level increased,
    he gets the number of units he wants !

    But he doesn┬┤t need that ! Did Sauron from Mordor had the necesity to rule his
    wasteland(provinces) to raise more armies ?I think, we should use a different
    kind of measure with the Orogs,goblins and gnolls population(they looks to live
    quite well in a waste land than everywhere !)

    The Gorgon is a bit of a special case. Raesene doesn't need to collect more
    GB or RP than what he already does. Let's face it he controls 2 or 3 other
    significant realms as vassals, if he wants anything he gets it.
    Gorgon:Yo vassal, I want more GB & RP!!!.
    Vassal: Sir, Yes Sir, Right Away Sir. Sir could please stop stepping on my
    neck, Sir?
    Does he need to pay is armies? Probably not. They have two choices. They
    can fight for him or be crushed by him. (Assuming of course full scale
    organized rebellion is not likely among the rabble he uses as troops). and
    they can do two things about this. Nothing & Like it. :)
    Also his realms are not exactly pristine wilderness. To what level could he
    possibly get them?
    All in all, his provinces are probably better off having higher source
    holdings.
    I know your only using the Gorgon as an example to show that it is
    possible. It's possible for any regent. However any cunning (or is that
    conniving) PC or DM could use this growth to their advantage thereby
    putting you in a worse position. Proceed with caution.
