  • ANNOUNCEMENT: Update to Royal Court Petitions

    Hear ye good denizens of Castle Marrach,

    By the grace and will of Her Royal Majesty Queen Vivienne, let it be known that the formatting and regulations for Royal Court petitions have hereby been amended. Henceforth at the commencement of petition commentary period for each Royal Court, the Office of the Chambers shall place a chest of court tokens in the Great Hall of Her Majesty's Inner Bailey. This chest, enchanted with Her Majesty's magics, shall contain court tokens distributed to court members based on their standing within the Royal Court, and be used to represent their support or opposition to any given court petition.

    When submitting court commentary to the Chambers courtiers are to include their tokens in a package with their commentary and the commentary itself should denote which tokens are being distributed to which petitions. These tokens shall be used to indicate the influence a courtier wishes to place towards or against any Court petitions, courtiers are therefore advised to take into consideration which petitions they feel most strongly about when submitting commentary. After court commentary period has concluded, tokens shall be tallied by the Chambers with the results presented to the Crown. Unused tokens will disappear following commentary period and do not carry over to following Royal Courts.


    ~ GUIDELINES FOR DISTRIBUTION OF COURT TOKENS ~

    - Courtiers receive 15 tokens, plus an additional 2 tokens for every link they hold above the 8th link on the Great Chain of Being.
    - Knights receive 30 tokens, plus an additional 2 tokens for every link they hold above the 6th link on the Great Chain of Being.
    - Nobles receive 40 tokens, plus an additional 2 tokens for every link they hold above the 4th link on the Great Chain of Being.
    - If a Knight or Noble is an Ordained Knight of the Realm, an additional 5 tokens are granted.


    ~ GUIDELINES FOR PASSING OF COURT PETITIONS ~

    - A petition for intrinsic promotion to the rank of Honored Guest requires a final sum of 25 tokens in favour.
    - A petition for intrinsic promotion to the rank of Courtier requires a final sum of 60 tokens in favour.
    - A petition to demote an individual from either of the above ranks requires twice the cost of that needed to raise the individual, and must also bear a detailed petition explaining the reasoning for the proposed demotion and outlining the and offences committed by the target of the demotion. The included reasons must clearly explain why the offender's behaviour is objectively harmful to the Court or Realm as a whole and deserving of the removal of the individual's intrinsic titles.
    - Other miscellaneous and/or unique petitions shall be assessed by the Crown and/or Chambers as they are presented, and an influence value attached to them at the discretion of the Crown.


    ~ COMMENTARY ~

    It remains the Crown's intention that the purpose of court commentary is to provide an opportunity for the court to advise the Crown on pending petitions that affect courtly life for all. As such, the Crown grants a consideration for any court commentary it deems well informed, justified and insightful explaining the reasons for their support or opposition to a petition. This consideration will count as token value to the sum of:

    - Up to 2 tokens for a court commentary that the petitioner did not place any tokens towards.
    - Up to 5 tokens for a court commentary that the petitioner placed tokens towards, but not to exceed a sum of one-half of the amount of tokens put forth.
