For higher-level player characters, dominion ruling becomes
a fact of life and normalcy. For my oqn use, I have developed a minor rule that
better deals with the gaining of experience for dominion rule.
It is understood that experience can only be gained for cash
income such as tolls, taxes, and resources. Experience gained is equal to the
PROFIT made that game month, NOT for the total cash income.
I.E. A PC ruler receives 1000GP for one month of cash
income. 500GP is paid out, leaving a profit that month of 500GP which is equal
to the XP gained that month for ruling.
If NO profit is made that game month, I.E. the payouts
exceed the total income, NO experience is awarded either. A profit must be made
in order for experience to be awarded to a ruling character.
