Re: Selecting Crowns

Lord Achbar, you write:

I suppose you mean we don't need ANY principalities within the Kingdom.
Any reason why not?  As the Principality of the Mists tends to demonstrate,
principalities (and territorial princes, for that matter) are not BAD things.
At about 1800 people, Atlantia is reaching an effective limit of direct
contact between the Royalty and the populace.  That, I think, is the driving
reason to establish principalities.  At present, we have NO pressure to grow
as a Kingdom.  Principalities would encourage growth.

I'm not necessarily against inter-baronial wars, I just think that making 
them annual, repeating occurances is a BAD idea.  In this, I accept Duke 
Richard's opinion, and bow to his greater experience.
