    Regency

    Hi there got a question for whom ever can anwser it.=


    Question: How do I translate regency or regency points into game
    terms? I mean, its easy to with blood points. It just means how much of the
    god you have in you. But regency is more complicated because you are getting
    more every three months. How can I role-play a loss in regency? Say some one
    stole regency points for you. How do I describe it in character terms?

    First I don't think it's possible to steal regency from a living
    ruler. From what I understand, the only way you lose that regency is if
    you're bloodthefted (is that a word?). If a regent is killed by a heart
    strike, the regency goes to the killer, istead of to the regents heir.
    As for describing it in game terms. I always saw regency as
    "enhanced" charisma. A lot of the actions "regency" must be spent to do
    strike me as needing influence (other than spells). I tend to think of
    regency as the amount of pull a character has from his/her ties with the
    land, or spendable charisma. A regent has strong pull because of the
    LH's, a court mage because of the SH's, etc... You get so much back
    every three months because you still hold control of those holdings, and
    are thus still very influencial.

    The way I handle regency is simple - Influence. The bigger your domain,
    the more influence you have. Regency represents what people are willing to
    do for you. Example - Bongo the thief guildmaster wants to rule up his
    guild in your capitol. He spends RP to increase his success roll - IOW, he
    greases a few palms, calls in some favours, threatens a few local merchants
    into working for him. As regent, you oppose him by spending RPs - greasing
    some plams and calling favours of your own (or whatever). It works quite
    well for losses of regency. Ex - the Orthodox Imperial Church of Haelyn
    deliberately accuses Guilder Kalien of being a child molester in revenge
    for a debt owed. Now, who's going to believe that? And, it's way out of
    line for a lawful good church to deface someone's character for revenge.
    This lowers the esteem of the church in the eyes of the populace, leading
    to a decrease in the church's influence. Ergo, a loss of regency.

    I realize this kinda breaks down when using regency for realm spells, but
    that could be some kind of magical thingummy that defies explanation. I
    like those!

    I use regency as a form of public confidence- The public believing that the
    ruler
    can make good on promises or/and threats.

    If you lose regency to another character. The public starts believing that
    the other
    might be a better ruler.

    I've allways treated it as the measure of political influence (or in the
    case of Realm Spells, the amount of power that can be drawn from the
    faithfull or from the land).
