Table 5-5:
Court levels Level Type Description
0 Minimal court The regent, and perhaps allies or a few hirelings paid from the regent’s personal finances, administrate the domain when and where they can. The regent must personally oversee all domain actions.
1-2 Quaint court The regent has a primary base of operations equivalent to a common inn and no more than a few servants. The regent has a local reputation within the province, but his courtiers are not well known. Common-folk expect to deal with regent directly and may be put off by having to deal with courtiers claiming to speak in the retainers’ name. The court is capable of undertaking standard domain action without necessarily requiring the regent’s personal involvement.
3-4 Average court The regent’s court is fully functional with a scattering of trusted retainers and a few specialized servants such as musicians, tutors, a huntsman, etc. The court is capable of hosting occasional affairs of state and small festivals. The regent’s retainers and agents are well known and the common-folk of the regent’s holdings begin to interact with the regent’s courtiers rather than the regent himself for most day-to-day matters. An average court allows one Court Action per domain round.
5-6 Good court The regent’s court becomes an established network and begins its own bureaucracy. The court has good facilities, plentiful servants and retainers, and regular feasts or festivals. People consider the regent’s court to be agents of an authority (legitimate or otherwise). The common-folk of the regent’s holdings interact with the regent’s courtiers for all but the most pressing of issues and the courtiers are well stationed to carry out the regent’s orders unassisted. A good court allows two Court Actions per domain round. Members of the regent’s court gain a +1 base reputation modifier.
7-8 Excellent court The regent’s court is large and capable. Court iers exist for every major function in the realm, and many have entire staffs of lesser courtiers that report to them directly. The court is capable of hosting balls and major galas egularly. An excel lent court allows three Court Actions per domain round. Members of the regent’s court gain a +2 base reputation modifier.
9-10 Opulent court The regent’s court is a major center of power. Guests are waited on hand and foot. The regent’s court handles all but the most critical matters and common-folk are rarely allowed the opportunity (or have the need) to speak with the regent directly. An excellent court allows four Court Actions per domain round. members of the regent’s court gain a +3 base reputation modifier.
11+ World-class court The regent’s court is a thing of wonder spoken of in far off lands. Every day brings new art, literature, sport, a festive event of some kind. The regent is expected to do almost nothing and is almost entirely inaccessible except to other powerful regents. A world-class court allows five Court Actions per domain round. Members of the regent’s court gain a +4 base reputation modifier.
