Nah, easier = better generally. Just generically having Academies be "formative" rather than "ongoing" is easier, and probably makes more sense anyway. I will also reduce the # of classes an Academy can produce, to encourage people to want to go to different academies for different characters/lieutenants/heirs.

Can also leave GBs from adventures at same level, just charge .5 to 1 GB per LT beyond the first per turn as upkeep. Those who wish to maintain large retinues of LTs have higher costs to go with the ability to do adventures without drawing in other regents.
Regents don't really get to decide how many lieutenants they should have. There's a lieutenant limit based on charisma and bloodline abilities, and it's the foremost reason those abilities matter.

They decide how many to keep around.

Yikes. I don't think even my regent ever learned spells from a library. And NS only had two children that were half-human and therefore in play.

Last Game humans got +1 DP, if they are still inferior that bonus can be increased.

Or give them priority starting location. It would reduce interracial harmony if the dwarves and elves showed up and all the good homes were being broken down to make roads.

Yup, they did. Could add another +1 DP for single class characters. So humans get 2 automatically, Goblin-Fighters (say) would also get 1.

This makes great sense to me. It allows not only for countries/kingdoms etc to have their own, but it also somewhat paves the way for more grand structures that might have either greater numbers of classes they can train, or train to higher levels, etc.

I thought it was wrong that the turns when I did an adventure action with my LT I gained much less xp than the zero risk sitting around in an academy. When adventuring there is a risk of death. That risk should be rewarded with better XP.

The war mercenary adventures were overpowered. There should be some reward based on the risk to self and your troops, but risk of death of troops should not go down with tier of troops. You already get more income from the higher Tier you should not have a double bonus of less risk.

Yeah, I think we're just not going to have either of those mechanics (sending lieutenants to academies or armies to off-map wars) going forward. There's no native factions to hire mercenaries in this area, anyway.
