I'm having a hard time imagining how you can have a regent in Erfworld. Surely the regent must be the actual ruler in order for the side to be categorized as a regency, but in that case what is the royal doing while not being king? Clearly the royal isn't a minor, therefore the royal must be one of those long-term incapacitated units that are being magically sustained, but in that case who was this royal before the incapacitation? He couldn't have been the ruler because then he would still be the ruler.Tonot wrote:A Regent is "A person appointed to administer a country because the monarch is a minor or is absent or incapacitated". So, still a Royal side.
Perhaps the only way for this to work is for a king to be attacked and incapacitated so badly that a Healomancer couldn't completely revive him, but he drifts in and out of consciousness enough to abdicate his position as ruler so his heir can take over. The heir isn't a prince, because that would still be a kingdom, so the heir must be a regular warlord who is trusted by the king. This warlord becomes the new ruler and declares himself a regent, with the intention of returning the side to the king as soon as the king recovers. Of course, no matter what the regent calls himself, he's still actually an overlord.
