Small Guild's Sharing a Town


  • TF#2 - MESSENGER

    What kind of Governance should be in place for smaller guilds sharing a town (Free Town)? Town Council? Super Small Senate, or some kind of King's Moot? I know that smaller guilds will have to share because of limited town space, and that some guilds will be better off sharing a town (like mercs, merchants and supplier guilds. MAYBE EVEN A TOWN WATCH GUILD OML I JUST REALIZED) but what should be in place to make sure the interest of the townies and their guilds interests are being considered. and what's to stop a guild that takes up 2/3rds of the population from setting the town to a guild town? Just interested, thanks. ^.^

    We'll probably see several types of these from Council where everyone has same votes or number of votes based on guild size, resources, whatever. A town watch guild would be pretty cool - I know several mercenary guilds are out there so they may take this up.

    Absolutely nothing and once it's a guild town only the Governor and Guild Leader (if not the same person) have to approve it changing back to a free town.

    That is a risk and there will be some strategy involved in who you approve to live in your town if you are a free town. You need the people in order to advance your town but there is a risk in losing the town if they vote in someone else in an election. I believe I read that if you are a free town any citizen of the town in good standing can call for a vote on an election. If the vote passes then it goes to an election to vote for a governor.


  • TF#8 - GENERAL AMBASSADOR

    A senate with representatives from each guild may work, except many guilds might prefer to go to a town where they could dominate instead of your town. A mercenary guild, for example, would probably prefer a guild town where the Governor is part of their guild. It would give them more of a free reign, and let them get away with illegal behavior.

    Also, for the issue where you want to stop your town from becoming a guild town, the only way that I see is becoming an Governor yourself, and trying to be as impartial as possible.
