Settlements on other peoples kingdoms


Advice


So i was thinking of adopting the kingdom rule from Ultimate Campaign to make a city in Taldor. My character Started out a noble son of House Merrisett and a Conjurer. I'm at level 11 now and i own a Fort on the
southern boarder of Taldor(using the downtime rules). and i was wondering what modifications would have to be made to the kingdom rules to cover just the settlement outside my fort. My character has been deeded the land by one of the Dukes of Taldor and is responsible for it upkeep and defense but it is a preexisting country with laws and a monarch so I'm not sure how much of it will translate

Been a while, but as far as I can recall it could work with any scale. You could be a king or just a baronet. You might reflavor a few things (general to captain of the guard, baronet instead of king and other things like that) but for the most part it should work fine.

the Kingdom rules don't get into the details of exact laws or that sort of thing. Your fealty to others will just a be role playing thing and won't effect the game rules.

Kingdom building is designed for an entire party to be doing, not just one player. If this is just your thing, and isn't an entire party project I wouldn't recommend using those rules.

Also, I don't think the regular downtime rules and the kingdom building rules work very well together generating a building from a kingdom building perspective and generating one from downtime are very different focuses and use quite different mechanics.

If you've been deeded the land, you're effectively the Viceroy for the area. Use the rest of the rules unmodified.

You might not be able to expand much, but you should be able to build
an awesome settlement, if your DM decides to play along. :)
