Proposal - Crown War/High King

Post by Lord Dubh » 2013-02-01

Co-Signed by Wulven and Tyriel

Changes are being highlighted.

The High King (remove the Crown War section)

Any Knight of the Realm may be High King of Darkon. The only way to become High King is to first remove the sitting High King by challenging him to Trial-by-Combat or in a Crown War. To make the challenge, a Knight of the Realm need simply go before the sitting High King and make the challenge, asking for Trial-by-Combat or a Crown War. If the High King refuses Trial-by-Combat or a second (or more) Knight of the Realm places a challenge on the High King, then a Crown War will be fought.

Trial-by-combat shall be fought using rules instituted by the Noble Council. For a Crown War normal invasion rules will be used with the exceptions given in this section.

During a Crown War there is no limitation to the size of the armies and participation does not negate the players’ ability to participate in other land events. As the two possible fights in the Crown War are held ion the same day, spell points are reset from one fight to the next as if they occurred at separate events. The date of the Crown War shall be no later than the 3rd event (6 weeks) after the declaration, skipping tournaments or camping events.

On the day of the battle all Knights of the Realm shall be called onto the field by order of precedence, starting with High King, and may bring retinues and any allies upon the battlefield. Knights of the Realm may also refuse to participate. Everyone who participates in the Crown War must be allied to and have the permission of a Knight of the Realm that is participating.

When the Elders call for the start of the battle all groups and individuals may fight as they choose, to include making and breaking alliances, until there is one obvious group or individual controlling the field and the fighting is over. When the fighting has ceased the winners shall declare to which Knight of the Realm they are loyal. If the victors declare for the High King, the Crown War is finished and the incumbent will remain High King. If the victors declare for any other Knight of the Realm, this knight becomes the supported candidate and a siege battle occurs immediately.

Unlike a normal siege battle, when attacking the Royal City of Tarimstadt, there are not any number restrictions for either the attacker or defender. If the High King loses the siege then the victorious knight is crowned the High King. If the army of the High King wins, the then he will remain High King. Only the supported candidate identified at the close of the field battle can become High King.

As a purely role-playing position of authority the High Kings power is limited by the support, or lack of, from the nations, and Knights of the Realm of Darkon. The High King can attempt to do anything within a role-playing context so long as they do not violate the rules of play.

A new High King sits safely upon his throne for a period of twelve months after coronation. At the end of the twelve-month period he becomes susceptible to a challenge. If the sitting High King retains his position after a challenge another challenge cannot be called for three months.

A full term for a High King is twelve months from coronation. For each coronation anniversary (12 month period) that a High King is on the throne they receive the next higher noble title (See Noble Titles). In this way a Knight of the Realm may advance one title for each year they are High King. The Knight of the Realm does not officially take the new titles until abdication or they lose a challenge.

If the High King abdicates for any reason, or the player chooses to leave the game thus leaving the position of High King vacant a Crown War shall be held to select the next High King. Failing to attend more than 50% of the events over a coronation year (the 12 months following coronation or anniversary) shall be automatically construed as abdication, unless there are mitigating circumstances to be determined by the Noble Council.
