Hmm..... might be ok. Would be good to remove instant tower bonus
then (or make towers good for something else.)

One thing I would like to see with a magic skill (refering to the
carpet pillage problem) would be somesort of transfer gold spell.
Perhaps it would require a tower (to keep the hardware) but
essentially the mage transfers gold from his person to another noble
Would be nice for the extended campaining moments and would
encourage spreading away from the castle base.
