An attitude system which allowed you to more specifically state who
could do what would help here. :-) But that's not really your complaint;
you don't see a reason to control access to regions, since you feel
that ATTACK is good enough. Nevertheless, some players want a more
formal mechanism for limiting traffic through their regions.

Note that in the regions-in-your-faction plan, a tower isn't associated
with your province stack.

province Drassa, faction [501]
Osswid, ruler of Drassa
Fighters of Pelenth

Castle Rodonus
Rodonus the Red

What relation does the castle have to the province protection? None,
here. So this is the problem. Did you think that it would help in
the province defense, or you don't think that it's a problem that
it doesn't have anything to do with the province stack?
