There's really no way to get around an investiture. An investiture ceremony
and spell is necessary to create a tie to the land, and such a tie is
absolutely necessary to gain regency. Swordhawk can effectively control the
provinces, tax them and pretty much rule them how he sees fit, but he will
never gain regency from them until he is able to invest them via a
recognition investiture.To unsubscribe from this list send mail to
