    Idea for `hostile takeovers`

    I was thinking, that its kinda silly that the only way to 'take over'
    somebodys land is to contest his holding down to nothing or invade his
    land with an army..

    I came up with this domain action. Im not sure if ill use it, but
    please-- PLEASE give me opinions :)

    'Contested Rule' Success: 10+
    Type: Domain Base Cost: 2gb,
    variable RP

    With this action, the regent spends time and energy advancing the causes
    of one of his holdings-- at the expense of someone elses holdings. By
    using the contested rule, he increases his share of the pie while
    denying his opponent access to said pie.

    Note: You must have a zero level holding in the province to use the
    contested rule action and there must be room for two seperate holdings
    (ie. the province has to be over third level, provided that the DM
    uses that rule.. If not, he can use this at any time)

    Ruling a holding in this way costs 2 Gold Bars plus Regency points
    equal to the desired level /and/ the level of the target holding. For
    example, if your ruling your 0 level guild in a province with a guild 4
    you would need to spend 2 Gold Bars plus 5 regency points.

    You cannot use this as a realm action, you can only use Contested Rule
    on one holding at a time.

    Sounds good to me but what is the intended effect? In the example
    higher, would i get a guild level 1 and my oppponent a level 3? Such an
    action should be contested by the opponent as usual (RP and GB).

    Eek :) Forgot to put that.. Yes, you go up a level and your choosen
    victum goes down one level. The action can, of course, be resisted
    by bidding RP :)
