Create a new dynastic rule, entitled Premium Goods:
As a weekly action, the Professor may create a story post in which he describes a customer who wishes to construct a unique Premium Good. This story post must detail the name of the Customer, nature of the Premium Good to be built, the quantities and types of Stock the customer needs in order to complete their Premium Good, and when the Stock needed to complete the Premium Good needs to be completed by. The Customer must then be added as an NPC in the GNDT; they do not need to be added to the list of NPCs in this ruleset.
If the Customer has enough Stock to complete their Premium Good by the time limit, then each Corporation gains one Payment (which is notated, as per other types of Stock, by an $ symbol) per item of Stock that they contributed to the Premium Good. In addition, the Delivery Company that transfered the most Stock to the Customer gains three Payments. A Delivery Company may not transfer more Stock to a Customer than it needs.
If the Customer does not gain enough Stock to complete their Premium Good within the stated time limit, then it collapses and all Goods transfered to it are lost.
Either way, when the Customer’s time limit has expired and all rewards have been distributed the Customer can be removed from the GNDT.
More specialised types of stock will probably be needed.
