terminology Hinterlands
« Topic Start: December 18, 2022, 12:26:36 PM »
There are two 'Hinterlands' usages in the new update: Region Control (Core, Hinterlands) and Administrative Power (None, Slight, Hinterlands, Heartland, Iron-clad). I would like to make the following two propositions.

Dry, but clear
None, Low, Medium, High, Absolute.

Less dry, but possible less clear
- None (the realm is not recognized in this region)
- Contested (parts of the region recognize the realm)
- Autonomous (Frisians simply killed Henry of Nordheim in 1101 and then started their totally legitimate 300 year ‘Fryske Frijheid’)
- Customary Law (‘Landrecht’ – the count is recognized, but still has to recognize local rights)
- Absolute (might makes right)

Ah, these are not bad. I will see about adapting the Control descriptions to these or something similar (noting that Administrative Power has been removed as a stat, and replaced with Control).
