Main Page » Domain action summary

All regents rule one or more holdings or provinces that form their domain. These represent the loyalty of large numbers of people, rights, privileges and duties amongst the populace, and so on - or in the case of a source regent a mystical tie to the mebhaighl that permeates Aebrynis. With the exception of source holdings all holdings generate income, measured in Gold Bars and influence measured in Regency Points.
Actions come in the following types:
Action typeDescription
CharacterAn action carried out without reference to the domain at all.
CourtAn action carried out by a regent's minions, allies etc while they are busy elsewhere.
StandardAn action that requires a some of the regent's time and attention for a month. If the regent spends a character action to support the domain action they can add any skill bonus towards determining the action success (and is called a full action).
RealmThis is a standard action that can be also be carried out by the court in a second (third, etc) part of the domain as an ancillary action to the main action. Therefore is the regent rules their guild in one province, their court can also seek to rule guild holdings elsewhere in the regent's domain.
The table below outlines the actions possible at 'realm level', and the costs of such actions.
