Add the following rule to the ruleset, entitled Resources:

Cash and Militia may be traded between Oligarchs freely. It is the responsibility of Oligarchs to ensure that the terms of such trades are adhered to.

Oligarchs may give Militia, Cash and Power to the Despot at any time, and the Despot can give Militia or Cash to the any Oligarch at any time.

Add the following as a subrule to that rule, entitled Swiss bank accounts:

The Despot and each Oligarch have a quantity of Cash. The default quantity of Cash for an Oligarch is $50,000, while the default amount of Cash for the Despot is $50,000,000. Cash is tracked in the GNDT. As a weekly action, the Director of the Bank may increase their Cash by $10,000.

Add the following as another subrule to the rule called Resources, entitled Militias:

Each Oligarch has a Militia value, which defaults to zero and is tracked in the GNDT. The Oligarch with the highest Militia value may increase their Power by the difference between their Militia value and the next highest Militia value as a weekly action.

As a weekly action, the Chief of Police, Admiral of the Navy, General of the Army and Brigadier of the Air Force may pay $x000 to the Despot to increase their Militia values by x.

Add the following to the first bulleted list in the rule entitled “Fight the Power”:

* The Despot may Seize the Assets of an Oligarch if that Oligarch is Seditious. When an Oligarch’s Assets are Seized, the Despot reduces that Oligarch’s Cash and Militia by half and doubles that Oligarch’s Power.
* The Despot may spend $1,000,000 at any time to increase their Power by 10.

Add the following to the second bulleted list in the same rule, between the entries marked 500 and 250:

* 300: The Despot can no longer Seize an Oligarch’s Assets,

In the same rule, to the sentence reading “The Despot may spend 5 Power to assign an Oligarch to an Office not already taken by an Oligarch, or to remove an Oligarch from their Office”, add the following:

(unless the Oligarch is Seditious, in which case they can be removed without cost).

Basically gives the despot 500 power. against

I’d prefer to work with power only, rather than 3 different variables. against
