Guild courts I imagine being similar to "The Godfather". Temples I see as
similar to the Vatican or the Mormon Tabernacle.

I have to agree with you on this point, the courts described in the rules
are more palace-courts.

I don't think a real mage needs a court, the status as a real/true mage is
enough that a king or regent-priests comes runing when the mage calls (not
all true, but I hope you get the picture what I mean).

I haven't tought much about this, as we haven't played so much with regents
and for the moment we are into playing Fading Suns and Kult. But I think
too that ruler (land owner) and temple courts are the ones which are
described in the rules.
Suggestion for Guild court:
The guild leader chooses a main holding which will be the place where all
major decision are made for the guild. The level of this holding is used to
determin the bonus for dipolomatic actions, but only in matters which has
something to do with economics. This advantige will cost the Guild 1GB per
Suggested Mage court:
The mage must have somesort of stronghold (minimum is a tower), the level
of the source the Mage holds in the province where this stronghold lies is
divided (halfed) and add to this one for each 5 level of the mage (rounded
down). To create this court the mage has to pay 1GB and 2RP (one time
cost). This system can't be used of Court Mages, they use the Court Vvalue
of the Regent they serve. When it comes to economical matters, then applay
a -2 points penalty to the diplomancy action.
As soon as someone decides to build a normal court, they will loose the
beneficies of thise optional court forms.
I hope this gives some good thoughts how to make a better Court system.
