Chapter 5: Domain Actions - Structures
« on: March 20, 2010, 09:24:11 AM »
NEW STRUCTURE

Ley Line Nexus [Generic; Source domain only]
You have created a special nexus for some of your ley lines, with which you can perform arcane rituals to preserve your ley lines.
DDC: 12
Build Cost: 10 GB
Upkeep: 0,5 GB/turn
Benefits: You may use GB to pay for ley line maintenance (1 GB = 4 RP), but only towards ley lines, hookups, extensions, and links connected to the nexus.

DM design note: This one was put forward by Alex; it provides an easy fix for a big problem - the average mage regent cannot afford to maintain even a single ley line. That's not how it's supposed to be!

The following PC domains get this structure for free, starting turn 67: Regien (the Tower Incarnate), Hermedhie (the Sea Tower), the Sword Mage (the Colossus of Tornilen perhaps?).

MODIFIED STRUCTURE

Embassy [Generic]
You build a large and suitably ornamental structure for use by your diplomats. Embassies are most frequently built in the court provinces of other major powers.
DDC: 8
Build Cost: 10 GB
Upkeep: 0,5 GB/turn
Benefits: You gain a +2 asset bonus to diplomacy actions taken with domains where you have an embassy located in their court province.

Once per turn you may take a Diplomacy action as a Court action (at no GB cost), but only with domains that have a court/embassy in the province the embassy is located in.

Special: You automatically gain diplomatic relations with all domains that have courts/embassies in the same province.

DM Note: The new embassy benefits must be seen in conjunction with Diplomacy becoming a Realm action (1 regent, 1 court).

Edit: The Nexus should have 0,5 GB upkeep (not 0,25 GB).

Edit: Based on feedback the upkeep of the Embassy was increased and the way it gives extra Diplomacy actions was changed (Court action each turn).
