I am going through looking at scrolls and such, and some Ministry power things came up that I thought would be good to touch on:
First off, can the city leader be able to change the owner of clans/manses now that they are permanent once deeded? I understand why it wasn't in place, but now that they can't be undeeded, it prevents that.
Novice locator was a great touch. Maybe give them the abilities like guild leaders have to look in inventories of novices, maybe the score too?
CITY POLITICS DECLARE <city/commune> WAR/PEACE/NEUTRAL, must be confirmed by the Council/City Leader (maybe at least three?) Could show up somewhere in the Halls of Justice, or CITY POLITICS.
An ability to place commodities into the shop without selling them would be nice.
Some kind of commodity trade command would be nice for trading between cities/communes, like CITY TRADE GLOMDORING <x> SILK FOR <x> WOOD. Their Trade minister would CITY TRADE GAUDIGUCH <trade number> CONFIRM. Could look at CITY TRADES to get this number.
Shoplog, like many people have asked for. Or just make the economy log show it.
Something to look at prices in another city would be nice, even if not completely accurate due to pricing. (Similar to ledger, but shows only the prices of cities/communes)
These are perhaps the least active of ministries, so it'd be nice to have them looked at. Not sure what they'd do, but maybe we could narrow it down to one. Don't believe either can actually remove funds from the city, so it would be on city leaders to make sure they were not one of the ministers who could remove gold.
It would be nice if there was a mechanical way to set what someone could draw. Could have general rules, like CITY POWER DRAW RANK 1 10, which would allow citizens of rank 1 to draw 10 power per weave, could add in CITY DRAW <percent> INPUT, which would allow them to draw a percentage of their input. May be difficult, would need to have multiple levels of allowing drain, like rank 1 + input. Would also need things for protector/security/champion, maybe just make these special individual rules you can apply though, and just have it by person, which would override the rank one?
I feel the chancellor should be more involved in promoting local business, so perhaps a city ADS command, which they could regulate? Give them the ability to sell ads to people/shops, take them down, etc.
A command CITY TRADESKILLS which will list each person who is currently online and their current trade skill(s). Could have a CONFIG option to opt out of this.
I think culture should have access to their gold in the bank, one to put funds in the arena, but secondly to fund events.
Stage command to bring up all pieces that haven't been submitted, if only to make them easier to find. (BACKSTAGE LIST UNSUBMITTED)
Library command to bring up all literature published by the city that hasn't been submitted. LIBRARY UNSUBMITTED LITERARY/SCHOLARLY.
A way to check the weight of a piece before it is submitted (could be for everyone, if there isn't already?)
