This is a more reasonable analysis than the one I provided, but it
still points out just how valuable perform is. Even in this analysis,
it is the equivalent of building a castle, two towers, an inn and
garrisoning 13 provinces. And with perform you can still move around

And I'm not even mentioning the fact that while faction #1 is building
that castle, the performers are building an army to scour the
mountaintop :-).
