Governing Body of Halvmåne

County Convocation

The Governing body of the County. All Barons & Mayors are automatically on the board, making them able to sit in on meetings between the ruling family, Pane-Whitetail, and the appointed Advisory Council: Domestic, Foreign, Assistant in Military, Assistant in Technology, and Assistant in Emissary. The Advisory Council are nominated and voted in by the citizens then elected by the ruling family, if the citizens have an issue with the Advisor handling affairs involving them they have the right to bring this to the Ladies attention and cast their votes if more than one person is nominated. Much like the votes within the Settlements of Barons & Mayors the amount of land one possess is the number of votes one can cast in favor or against a nominee. A nominee cannot nominate themselves but they can vote for themselves.

Elected Officials & Advisors

  • Domestic Advisor (0/1) - Will be in charge of all citizen and noble relations, agriculture (alongside Tech Advisor), and business contracts/inspections within the County. Must have great diplomacy skills.
  • Foreign Advisor (0/1) - Will be in charge of all relations, contracts, and other dealings outside the County, Duchy, and/or Kingdom. Must have great diplomacy skills.
  • Assistant Military Advisor (0/1) - Will be the assistant of Count Sterling Payne for all Military related tasks.
  • Assistant Technology Advisor (0/1) - Will be the assistant of Countess Awenita Whitetail for all Science & Technology advancements and research.
  • Assistant Emissary (0/1) - Will be the assistant of Baron Caraway, and the advisors of Foreign and Domestic advisors in diplomacy.
  • Representatives of the Vassals (0/10) - A small body of Elders to speak on behalf of their communities that do not meet the requirements to hold the title of Mayor or Baron.

These high ranking citizens won't be required to live within the capital, depending on their role they will always need to be in contact with the Barons and Mayors to ensure that any tasks needing to be carried out are properly explained and assigned to those who best fit the qualifications to ensure that it is completed without a hitch.

At the moment these roles aren't promised permanently in the sense that if the citizens do not agree with how the Advisor(s) carry out their duty they will have the opportunity to designate a minimum of two other citizens who could fulfill the job, the Count & Countess as well as their internal committee will then vote on their favored candidate to take on the role. There is no set timeline (at the moment) as to how long a citizen needs to be in office before being voted out.

Courthouse of Nattehimmel

Unlike the Convocation, the Court officials are chosen by the rulers of the County and the Duchy. The citizens however still have the power to let it be known they are unhappy with any of the officials on board but do not have the same power to vote them off their position, that power is purely left up to the County & Duchy to decide. Court officials are as follows:

  • Magistrate(s) (0/1) - Mayors (or Barons) who have accumulated enough land and acquired a Courthouse to form a City who'll handle lesser offenses within the County.
  • County Sheriff (0/1) - Investigators of the County; they are one of the first to be dispatched on the scene of crimes that are deemed severe enough to warrant escalation to the County Court.
  • Court Guards (0/1) - Captains of the Guard who has been promoted to serve as officers of the Court.
  • Executioner(s) (0/1) - In the rare case of a death penalty the Executioner will carry out the gruesome deed of ending the life of the guilty. A Gravedigger will also be available by proxy if a death results in permadeath with no next of kin to claim it for burial.
  • Court Reporter(s) (0/1) - Someone who'll transcript the entirety of any trial held within the Noble Court (and possibly lesser courts).
  • Orator(s) (0/10) - Lawyers who will work off the information provided to the Court by the Sheriff of the County. Depending on mechanics one will be appointed to the Accused and the other will represent the County.
