Wren's 2.0 Game
These simplified rules on owning lands and managing an economy are derived from the Birthright campaign. Once every three months (a season) your character may take four actions to strengthen his rule. Some actions can be made as ‘free’ actions, but only one free action may be made a month. If you need to contest an action against another ruler, you roll a 1d20 plus your Loyalty bonus. The higher of the two wins the contest.

Province level can be increased as an action. Each province demands you pay upkeep for its control. The Army Units is the number of units that province can support. You will need half the suggested Army Units in each province to hold law and order.
