Create a new rule, “Raiding”:
There is a Royal Treasury (a set of amounts for each Resource), and a Guard Level (a number), tracked by the Mad Prince in a stickied blog post. The Mad Prince can change the value of the Royal Treasury and/or Guard Level at will, but should try to avoid doing so towards the end of a week.
As a weekly action, a Commoner can Raid by contacting the Mad Prince privately (via private message, IRC, or email at callforjudgement at yahoo.co.uk), stating that they are Raiding that week.
As a weekly action, the Mad Prince can resolve all Raids for the previous week. If the number of Commoners who Raided in the previous week (known as the Raiders) was greater than the Guard Level, then this causes each such Raider to gain resources equal to the Royal Treasury, divided by the number of Raiders. If the number of Raiders was less than or equal to the Guard Level, then this instead causes the Income of each Raider to decrease by 10.
Set the Royal Treasury to 0 of each Resource, and the Guard Level to 0.
If Scavenging is too slow for you, why not band together and take on the Mad Prince’s automated army, to raid his stockpiles directly? Of course, should you fail, you’re going to end up watched more closely forever after, as well as quite possibly beaten up a bit. Such are the risks of war…
