Some areas just shouldn't be taken by realms.  Don't want to be dirt poor?  Don't build your realm on top of a badlands or desert.  Look at the Desert of silhouettes or the palm sea on Dwilight.   Never intended to be a region in a realm.  They were meant to be a limiting terrain. 

OI is irrelevant because they chose to build their realm in a [email protected]#$ty place.

. Also, the main evidence Zeb/Dusty used throughout were the family records that "proved" Stheno was a commoner. No, they "proved" Stheno started a life of adventure. Its semantics, yes, but apparently this entire matter started with semantics.



The part of the family history that's most important is what's missing.  Theirs no affirmation of her becoming a noble.  According to the family history she was born a commoner and she died a commoner.

Also, doesn't having a commoner declared a noble and your heir circumvent the 1 noble rule? 


She was declared a noble and Ranias Heir.  Several other nobles participated.   Not just her daughter.

The Vahanian quote was what I was referring to.  After I posted my question here they changed their characters point of view.   I didn't post quotes to start with because I didn't think they would be needed.  My main question was about game mechanics trumping RP.  I will do better in the future enunciation my questions further.   A commoner is a commoner and not a noble.  RPing that they are a noble seems like it should be against the rules.

Convenient ass covering by antonia...  I was told I was not allowed to be Marshal or lord because I'm a 'commoner' and now I've been accused of multi cheating.

In the eyes of the church you are a commoner. You have been stripped of all other rights, titles, and ranks per the Holy Oracle's decree.

Despana forgot the part where the commoner was declared a noble without without using the game mechanics to do so and was declared Ranias Heir.  As for accusing fornication with a commoner or Daimon, no not quite....

Your Grace Rania,

Your own family doesn't recognize her either. Also, you didn't answer the question. Who is the father? How do we know you didn't fornication with some dirty commoner or abused by some Daimon? No, your daughter is not and never will be a noble. Wish all you want. Bluff and bluster all you want. It doesn't change the simple facts.

Rania declared her commoner to be a noble and heir. The game says she's a commoner and not a noble.  The commoner was being treated as a noble in RP's and such.  I protested such things as it goes against what it means to be noble.  If they were going to declare a commoner to be heir to a Royal and a Duke I started asking pointed questions to gain more details.  Now I'm the bad guy...  yes I pushed buttons...  the gist seems to be that family history isn't accurate and now I've been 'demoted' to being a commoner.   No one wants to speak up against it even though the guide to adventurers goes against all they are doing. Rania is quite popular so no one is going to question her.     A noble being declared a commoner should cause riots and no one seems to care

My noble has been declared a commoner because I am antagonistic towards a popular noble.  The rest of the realm is going along with it.   No way would the nobility accept such a thing.  At what point does game mechanics trump role playing and what recourse do I have?

That would open up a glaringly obvious loophole: want to found a new realm? Still on good terms with your government? That's OK, have them ban you anyway!


That's a small price to pay to retain Ducal Power.  Dukes have always had that power.  Taking the power away to allow them to secede is a HUGE power shift.  I understand why you are making the changes, but this changes a very large dynamic to the game.   Being able to secede as Duke is what kept the balance.  If they banned you, good chance you were taking your Duchy with you.


As for having your realm ban you to allow you to secede and form a new realm...   then deal with it on a case by case basis.  If it happens like that people will make a Titan report and it can be dealt with.    What's to stop people from loading a Duchy with nobles and have them trickle back to the main realm after the secession?  Your current rule leaves a loophole too.  How to fix that? Make it against the rules...  the same way to fix the problem with friendly banishments, with a rule.   

Maybe this is all too much work and not worth it.  I understand there are limited resources, but removing so much power from a Duke will.change the dynamic of the game.

There should be an exemption.  If a Duke is banned they should have the opportunity to secede no matter what.


As for the 15 nobles I think 10 might have been a fairer number.  Astrum was founded by 5 or 6 nobles trecking through winter and fighting the hordes to make it to Libidized.

So you're saying that not only is it against the rules for temporary lordships it's against the rules to have a Mercenary group?

Questions & Answers / Against the rules?
« on: February 17, 2019, 03:05:53 PM »
I started a Mercenary Guild.  We move to each realm when we take a contract there.   Contracts are a minimum 3 months extendable to 5 months total.  One of our payments is a lordship in order to build and expand our guildhouse network. 

Is it against the rules to take a lordship I know I am going to abandon in 3-5 months when I go to the next mercenary contract?

As a character she was offended.  Who wouldn't be?  Me personally I got a good laugh out of it.
