I like to start-up rule conversions if anyone is interested.
I was thinking about the regency/holdings conversion to 4e. I like the idea of it being base on Power Source and Role. My idea is as follow.
Martial Access to Law
Divine Access to Temple
Psionic Access to Temple
Arcane Access to Source
Primal Access to Source
Defender Access to Law and Temple
Striker Access to Law and Guild
Controller Access to Temple and Guild
Leader Access to Law, Temple, and Guild
Province is Access by All
But after that I give players 2.5 pts to spend on the different Access. Person can spend 0 pts, 0.5 pts, 1.0 pts, and 1.5 pts to an Access. Examples as followed.
A Paladin has access to Province, Law, and Temple; he spends 1pt to Province, 1pt to Law, and 0.5pt to Temple. That means that he will gain full regency from Provinces and Law holdings and half regency from Temples.
A Fighter might do 1pt to Province and 1.5pt to Law and get full regency from Provinces and full plus half regency from Law.
A Warden (using a Native American style play) might do 1pt Law (for his warrior tribe) and 1.5pt Source (for his connection to the Primal Spirits of the Land).
A Swordmage could do 0.5pt Province, 0.5pt Law, 1pt Temple (Wizard School), and 0.5pt Source.
Players should not be able to make Holdings in areas that they have no points in (and therefore gain no regency from). I would allow a player to change pt arangement by way of Retraining.
As for Multiclass and Hybrid class, pt assignment should be limited. Access from Multiclass is limited to 0.5 pts. Access from Hybrid class is limited to 1.0 pts. Examples as followed.
Fighter who multiclass as a wizard can only assign 0.5pts to guild or source.
Fighter/Wizard Hybrid class is limited to 1.0pts to Law, Guild, and Source. Temple and Province is access by both so they can be 1.5pts.
I also want to add my vision of a Temple Holding is one of Training and Learning. That could be a training facility for warriors or a wizard's school; not just a place for ppl to pray to gods. Case in point, all of the Cuiraecen temples seem to me to be all about training warriors, its the Haelyn temples are the real bible thumpers.
As for Bloodline Strength, I am thinking of setting min/max base on character tier.
At heroic tier, Min of Tainted/5, Max of Major/40.
At paragon tier, Min of Minor/15, Max of Great/60.
At epic tier, Min of Major/35, Max of True/90.
I am thinking of a starting bloodline of Minor/20.
