    [BIRTHRIGHT] -- BR rules outside Cerilia?

    I've been running a BR campaign PBEM for about three weeks now. It is set
    on a very small "contintentlet" which was being colonized by humans and a
    scattering of elves and dwarves from a mainland area. The area has now been
    cut off from the mainland (long story), one of the colonies has attacked and
    assimilated the others, and the game has begun. Obviously, the area is not
    a part of Cerlia's map, and in fact I have not mentioned any of the specific
    BR human races and avoided using Bloodlines and Blood abilities.

    I have been having fun with this, but also wondering about using the BR
    rules in another campaign of mine where a PC of noble blood (a bastard
    child) has finally become an Earl on attaining 11th level and building a
    tower in a mostly-uninhabited part of the land. This player is an Evoker,
    so right away I can see some differences -- no realm spells outside of
    Cerilia! This may explain why there are so few mage regents IMC, however...

    Any advice for someone trying to use the BR taxation and "event turn" rules
    in a homebrewed campaign world without Ley Lines, Realm Spells, etc? I
    think it could work pretty well, although fighters and thieves would be at
    distinct advantages over Priests and Mages when it came to ruling lands
    (Actually priests wouldn't be all that bad off). Maybe give priests FULL
    regency for Law Holdings, etc.?

    What about Bloodlines? In most campaigns almost anyone can become a
    "regent" if they put their minds to it. I am thinking that PCs such as my
    Earl PC should start with the lowest Bloodline score available, maybe
    slightly more ("tainted") for a bastard son of a Baron, etc. Obviously
    there are no Blood Abilities, but these are not completely needed in most
    campaigns.

    Overall, I have been very impressed with the campaign setting, and this is
    after spending a great deal of time designing a tax system for my Earl PCs
    holdings! Someday I may design my own world with the BR rules in mind,
    implementing the gods, blood abilities, etc. but making my own maps and
    kingdoms.

    Join the Aduria project or Online City Project. They are doing just that. They
    can be found (shortly) at birthright.net or currently at the netbook (which I
    don't know the URL off the top of my head).

    Speaking of the Aduria project, I'm currently
    in the process on writing an article on
    Masetia, I was wondering if whoever runs the
    Aduria project would want it. I will be
    posting it to list when I'm done.
