Which is not to say it wouldn't happen. I have seen Rogues build up law
holdings. Its not uncommon in Coeranys. Whether they control the law to
protect their guild holdings, to gain additional sources of revenue in
provinces where they already are influential, or to undermine the soveriegn,
Rogues can and should occasionaly invest in law holdings.
