Add the following as a subrule to the rule Auctions, entitled The Palace Guard:

As a Daily Action, a Nobleman may expend Power to Instruct the Palace Guard. In all cases, the Nobleman Instructing the Guard must send a private message to Louis XIV detailing what Instructions that would like to give and must then make a comment to an Auction Post stating that the Guard have been instructed (a Notice of Instruction). The Impacts of an Instruction must be limited to the Auction on whose Auction Post the Notice of Instruction was posted. The possible Instructions and their Power costs are as follows:

* 2 Power: Disrupt the Bursar: One specific Nobleman has one Bid on the Auction disqualified at random (treated as a bid of 0 Money).
* 2 Power: Blockade a Courier: On one Item in the Auction, Money bids are disregarded and the winner is determined solely on the basis of Power.
* 5 Power: Show of Force: Two named Noblemen, neither of whom may be the Nobleman who Instructed the Guard to carry out this effect, have their Power compared at the moment that the Auction is resolved. If the Nobleman with the lesser power wins any Item or Items in the Auction then one at random is taken by the Nobleman with the greater power.

I think two of these are not that useful, but I could be wrong. Also, some odd interactions might occur.  imperial
