Sorry this has taken so long but thought we should try to get the discussions started. Jayde & I will be working on this issue so if you have any questions please let us know. The discussions at the Imperial Estates Meeting helped us realize that this is an important issue but needs to be broken in to smaller items and take a few steps at a time. First part I think should probably just be on the basic numbers required for each division. The current numbers are:
King or Queen-Sovereign Crown of a Kingdom, defined as at least 125 paid members
Prince or Princess – Subject Crown of a Principality, defined as a geographically specific region within a Kingdom as defined by the Crown
Estates of that Kingdom and containing at least 75 paid members over and above the numbers needed to maintain a Kingdom.
Duke or Duchess -Ruler of a Duchy, which is defined as a geographically distinct region within a Kingdom or Principality containing at least 50 paid
Marquis or Marquessa - Ruler of a March, defined as a geographically distinct Territory within the boundaries of a Kingdom (as defined by the imperial estates) and consisting of at least 25 paid members.
I don't think we need to do anything with the Metro Chapters as they are only 5 members.
I would like to start getting the populaces opinion on these and see if we can put together a workable solution to this.
