    Can people with holdings declare war on other people with holdings in
    the same province without declaring war on the province? Say 2 thieves
    have holdings in a province. Thief 1 is trying to contest Thief 2's
    holding. Can Thief 2 just declare war on Thief 1, destroy the Thief 1's
    holding and not affect the province?

    Good question. Going by the way the rules are worded, I really don't
    think it is possible. In order to have the opportunuity to raze holdings
    with an army, you have to occupy the province first, thereby reducing the
    loyalty and generally pissing off the ruler (if it isn't you). I think
    the idea behind holdings was to use other methods to eliminate the
    competition (like contest, or espionage actions). Of course, as a DM you
    always have the opportunity to change the rules to suit your own
    campaign.

    No you can't, cause to move an army in a province you don't control, the
    ruler must agree, or you must declare war. So, a guilder in any province
    can just use his armies to defend, or to declare war to the ruler.

    It's in the rulebook

    Ok let me restate. Can a person with a holding declare war on other people
    with holdings with the provincial ruler's permission? For example, a
    Ranger has a guild holding in a province. In the same province is a
    thief that keeps doing espionage after espionage. Finally the Ranger
    gives up and asks the Province ruler "Can I just go wipe out so and
    so's guild holdings? He has been a lot of trouble to me." Can the
    province ruler give someone else permission to declare war on just a
    holding?
