We seem to have deviated from Domain maintainence to Stability.  Bjorn, can we start a new thread for Stability?
Yes, wyrmling, the meat is made all the more tender by armor...

I kind of like this better than the previous flat rate actually.
I'll have to do some number crunching to see if I agree with the rates, but the per level idea is really good.

ETA: I meant having it always be per level is a good idea.

Assuming that this is intended to work along the lines of Andy's option A from the first page, then this works quite well. I wonder though if it reflects the desired effect of larger domains being substantially more expensive to maintain to the degree that Bjorn apparently intended.
Perhaps the progression after 10 levels could increase by .02 rather than .01 (i.e. 1, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, etc.) and have the break points every 20 levels, rather than every 40.
That would give a slightly less linear progression and also get the cost of the really big domains up closer to the levels Bjorn had intended.

Also, the costs at under 10 levels are too high -- they would cripple the smaller domains.

After playing around with the numbers; I would suggest the following
Levels   GB/Lvl
0-2              0
3-4           +0.025
5-6           +0.05
7-8           +0.075
9-10           +0.1
11-20   +0.11
21-30   +0.12
31-40   +0.13
etc, increasing by .01 every extra 10 levels.

This has the added advantage of being easy to convert into a formula for the P&H, thereby avoiding another resource heavy table lookup.

Well that would certainly increase the amount of available capital, especially for the bigger domains. :)

Or perhaps there could simply be a flat maintenance rate of 0.1 GB per level (for province levels and for non-source holding levels).
