How you become King

Poster: stephancm@juno.com (Peter H. Clarke)

I think it would be interesting to have to do more than swing a stick to
become King.  Although, swinging a stick is VERY important, especially in
WAR TIME.  But, I would also like to see a more rounded criteria to
become the monarchs.  Look at the authority and power a Queen has, and
her only requirement for becoming Queen is to pick the right guy to be
consort to.  I am not knocking Queens mind you, I hold all Royalty in the
highest regard.

If other criteria were added it would definately complicate the issue. 
Right now it is a KISS system and the winner is very easy to identify. 
However, it is possible for a person with a rather thick skin  to become
a very  powerful person and that does bother me to some extent.  I know,
I know, honor and chivalry is expected of all the contestants, but we do
have to face the reality of things.  It is very easy to get highly
excited and honestly not register blow especially when fighting for such
an enormous prize (I perfer to view it this way rather than to say
someone intentionally blew off blows).

I am interested in additional comments.
