Her Ruler ability, "Divided Loyalties", reads as follows:

"Whenever you place bonus Political Influence, you must give an equal amount of bonus Political Influence to one other Ruler wherever you placed yours."

How exactly does this work? I'm inclined to read this as meaning that if Lady Sun places x amount of bonus political influence, she can then FORCE a competing ruler to place that same amount. But even then, does it come out of their bonus stash? What if they don't have enough, does it come from the bank, or are they just out of luck?

Or does it work completely differently?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, Nik:

Great question! You are correct in how it functions; however, the other Ruler gains it out of their bank, they do not have to spend their pool. It is meant to be a drawback for a statistically powerful Ruler but it can be used in sneaky ways to foster competition between two rivals or tip the balance against your greatest competitor in a key territory.

Excellent, thanks! It's a wonderful ability; lots of potential for shenanigans, and spot-on thematically.

Now... just have to get the game back to the table for a go-round with the Special Rulers!
