piersb Posted February 20 Report Share Posted February 20 I've been taking a look at the Book of the Estate and trying to work out what the rules-as-intended are for Advowsons and Endowments. My understanding is as follows. (I'm going to use an Abbey for the example, but it should still hold for Priories.) Section: Abbey, p86 Build an Abbey which can hold 20 monks for £54 Endow a minimum of £9 worth of land to support those 20 monks Any extra endowment above that £9 comes back to me every year; so let's endow an extra £6 of land for easy sums So I now have an Abbey which brings in £6/year Section: Advowson, p87 A lord who founds an Abbey "often" retains the right to the Advowson. An Advowson requires building a Church or Abbey... ...but Advowsons can be bought and sold Purchase price for an Advowson is 20x the Endowment. I can see two possible ways to read this: I build the Abbey, and I get an Advowson through building it, for a total Glory of 15/year and no extra cost. If, on the other hand, someone else had built the Abbey then I could (assuming the GM or player who built it allows) buy the Advowson for a one-off payment of £300, and collect the glory each year for it. The original builder would keep the benefits of the Abbey itself, and would lose the benefits attached to the Advowson. The Advowson does *not* come as part of the cost of building the Abbey, and I would need to pay for it separately (who to?) I think it's the former, but was wondering if anyone else had any Advowson experiences, and how they'd interpreted it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
