Birthright Revised Solitaire Random Tables (AD&D 2nd Edition)

Update: Last edit on Dec 6th, 2021. Major overhaul of Random Events Table.

After playing around for some full turns in my solo Birthright AD&D campaign, and starting a PBP game with a few online friends I wanted to modify the tables I posted earlier to try to figure out what surrounding Regents and their Kingdoms do for each turn. In my solo game too I handwaved a lot, and I want to be a little more exact and specific with other players.
