It works! Everything is in but TAKE, and still no docs. The current
documentation on location ownership is somewhat confused. Basically,
the owner of a building or ship is the first character inside it, and
the owner of a provice is determined by castles/garrisons.

I will make it so the province ruler or administrator can set the name
of the province and its sublocations. This should make the map a bit
more interesting.

I'll send new docs to the players list as soon as I have them, but feel
free to start beating on the garrison mechanism.
