    Taline---Devestation Points vs.

    Yes, we've been using Taline for quite some time, and the
    Devestation points make life interesting for the guilders.
    Putting them on hold in order to keep the provence from
    degrading is a sure test of loyalty in the Provence.

    In most places, it wouldn't make too much of a diference,
    but we are trying to protect the sources in the provence
    as much as possible (for various reasons).

    It definately is a pain for the regents to try to keep the
    provence from revolting (especially if somebody "agitates"
    the provence). Also, it makes competing with Bourine(sp?)
    for the law holdings much more interesting.

    Is there a way to higher the magic power in the realm?

    Also in the Taline Source book, it tells that the wizard of the
    realm (I can't remember his name) discovered a way to increase
    the sources beyond their normal maximum level, but it required
    stealing the a couple of years of life from the people there
    (an evil act at best). Other than that, you'd have to have
    some elves or something to raise the sources beyond their
    normal capacities via the Rule action.

    The magic potential of the land is at a set figure. In the Taline book it
    also list a possible way to increase the source ratings of the land but it is
    a costly experiment. Normally the only way to restore the lands natural
    ratings are to leave the land alone and then the magic power will naturally
    grow strong again. I can't remember how long this will take..(1 point per
    year?) but there you go. And it will only come abck if the province rating
    falls below normal again..due to war, pillaging, etc...

    I'd say that's an excellent way of ruining the magical potential of
    the land - look at what the Basilisk did to his domain - provinces of
    0/0 or 0/1 because he's poisoned all the wildlife etc.

    If magic flows from the land, destroying the land destroys the magic.
    It also leads to lots of cool "wizards vs. guilds" scenarios.
