While I like this addition in PAoE it has some problems in games where the emperor might change. In PAoE this is just overlooked, but we shouldn't. If a new emperor, not Austrian, is chosen, all guarantees will remain for Austria and the new emperor won't get them. Guarantees can not be created nor canceled by events. IMO we should use guarantees because of this.Ryan said:should the emperor guanrantee the independance of all minors like in PAoE?
