In Rule 2.8 titled “Royal Armies”, replace “As a weekly action, a Commoner can attempt to Liberate the County in which he is located” with
A Commoner can attempt to Liberate the County in which he is located
In this Rule replace “it is illegal to attempt to liberate a County if there has already been an attempt to liberate that County.” with
it is illegal to attempt to liberate a County if there has already been an attempt to liberate that County or if a County has been liberated by another Commoner in the last 60 minutes.
Since Liberation will not be a VC any more, Liberating is not that efficient. A “Royalty Proximity Sweeper” costs 5 Iron, 5 Wood, and 2 Gem, increases the Power Requirement of an Invention and Detecting costs 5 Coal, 1 Gem, and 3 Quicksilver. I think you should be allowed to liberate each county at the time you noticed it’s safe. Of course you will not be able to liberate all counties in one week, because there are restrictions of traveling.
Additionally, there is a loophole. Consider following situation. Next week, I “detect Royalty (Sommerset)”. If the result is “1”, i know Devon, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire are safe. So i travel to one of them and attempt to liberate this county, eg. Gloucestershire. All other Commoners might assume exactly this situation and know that Devon and Wiltshire are safe, too. So they travel there and liberate these counties. They have not payed anything (except the travel costs) for this, but their Income is increased by 10.
If I know three Counties are safe, I should be able and allowed to liberate them, shouldn’t I?
