That Crown thing again.
I believe that if you had three or more Crown tourneys, you'd end up with
a lot of ex-Princes who could not get retirement titles. I don't think
you could get to be a Viscount for being an ex-royal prince who never
served as King.
However, if the Princes were territorial, even if they didn't get to be
King, they would get retirement titles. That is, they would become
Also, if they were territorial princes, there would be a number of
occasions when Only ONE prince would want to become King. the other
three would want to only serve as Prince. That would mean that the four
Princes would have a good chance of chosing one of their own simply by
talking to each other.
Or they could agree to hold a contest of some sort to decide the issue.
Maybe half the time that wouldn't happen, and the election would be
thrown to the Barons. A requireement to have 9 out of 13 baronies
support one candidate certainly reduces the chance that one region will
dominate the Crown.
I like your idea for wars, but I don't think the Kingdom should be having
them twice a year, so we obviously need to make that a rare occassion.
Then if you add a couple more rules, such as a principality can't have
the Crown more then twice in a row, and can't have the Summer or Winter
reign more then twice in a row, also that a Principality must have the
Crown at least once within four years. These rules would allow us to
know that certain princes are not viable for the Crown in certain reigns,
and occassionally one prince will have to become the Crown.
I haven't this great fear of regionality which you express. I think that
particularly if border groups are allowed to change principalities fairly
easily, that the Kingdom would definitely be stronger.
But we can't have a war every six months.
