Just for clarification:

Any regent with a holding (not just similar holdings) can influence
another's action if they have a holding within the same province, according
to the rule you mentioned. When it comes to the rule action, regents with
similar holdings can influence the success number with the level of their
holding... this is the only action where this happens, as it is the only
action where this is mentioned.

Hope this helps,

Taking the create are rule actions as an example, when the rules say only
regents with a similar holding can oppose/support the action, they
specifically mean that only those regents (with a similar holding) can apply
their holding level as a bonus or penalty to the action check. But any
regent with a holding(s) in the province can bid RP to support or oppose the
action. So, a regent with similar holdings can both apply his holding
level(s) and bid RP if he so chooses.To unsubscribe from this list send mail to majordomo@lists.imagiconline.com
