You need to accumulate Shrine-power to fuel faiths

Espionage: Theft - Relic

DC: 15 + Target Player's Bloodline + Shrine Level
You Steal their Relic. Target loses the ability to project Divine Authority. You now project an additional times your Shrine (if this is the 2nd relic you own, you project 2x Shrine level towards a Faith).

Other Changes:
Watchtower cost down to 5GB
Leylines need a source on both sides
Various Building changes

For resource use, are we able to insta-build in Turn 1 by using 2x Resources? Or is it build at normal build rates for resources (ie can fast build for 1d6+3, normal build at 1d6, or slow build at 1d4)?

Additionally as there is no court, presumably number of builds are based off shrine level + 1?

I asked Juan earlier and he said you can use only 1 ressource per building.

Can you use 1 resource in turn 1, plus 3 to 5 GBs from starting GBs/RPs?

To increase a shrine, is it like a Bloodpoint increase (free action) or an create/rule shrine action?

Well you can use 1 ressource which gives 5 GB and then you have the build action depending on how fast you build -> 1-6 for normal, 1-4 for slow and 1-6+3(costs 2 extra) for fast

The question is still: how many build actions can you do per turn- normally it depends on court and now?

It depends on Shrine. 1+Shrine level builds
Shrine is a build action, that costs 5RP (not reduced by any NWP).

The Resource 5gb is added to the build right away, so instead of 8GB the castle costs 3GB. You'd then build it as normal.

you could move your court- it is possible to move your shrine (source users want it to have in source) or it is automatically defining your capital, too?
