Can we make some towns too. I know a good one we could make if we successfully defend the shoreline. A town where Rainos leaves by boat to go to Mythron. I'll look up a name if you want :D

Yeah great! Thanks! My village MOC is rather small - maybe I'll build more of Hythe later on but built into the cliffs. Maybe that's an idea. The town is mostly built into the cliffs.

Final summary:
Hythe is a small fishing and mining town in between the massive cliffs on the shore. Most of the village is built into the cliffs. Hythe is a popular town for those wanting to cross over to Mythron. It is also the source of stone for Rainos and is well fortified because of this.

Sound good?

Do you think you can help with the descriptions of the cities? Also can towns be claimed - if so I claim Hythe :) I think that Towns can be claimed but can be built by other builders with the permission of the owner of the town.
Maybe villages cannot be claimed - only made.

The four larger cities are like provincial capitals, so the small-town leaders won't have as much power, but you can claim them if you want. They might be good locations for castles when the time comes.

Ok err... how about they have control over the surrounding area. The cities in charge of that part of Rainos (You'll need to draw those lines on the map) can order that town to attack the people in that area in a MOC off or something like that. We'd need to put that in the main group though :/

Hmmm, well, for one, they could have their own militia. The could conduct raids on other small towns, and gain a ballot I spose.

Let's see what we have:

Any Rainosian can create a small town. These towns are not as powerful or important as the four larger cities which represent entire regions of Rainos, but they do have their own militia that can fight off intruders within the town's focused sphere of influence. Towns are excellent locations for castles (opened at 125 character points) Creation of a town in a free build will give one ballot to the founder. Towns do not always get along.

Now with a bit of refinement:

Rainosians can create each create one small town with another for each Honor they achieve. Construction of a town requires a MOC independent of any Honor MOCs (although they can be incorporated into challenges and other builds) and each town will give its founder one extra ballot as well as a small sphere of influence. Each town will be affiliated with a certain Rainosian clan and will fight for that clan in any disputes that may arise within our faction, or it can use its militia to turn out trespassers from any faction.

Example:
I have earned two Honors, so I can build three towns for a total of six ballots. Each town connects to a certain clan, most likely the Bull Clan, and these will give me a bit of clout should The Masked try to ruffle old Cedric's feathers. Also, each town has a small radius in which it can expel trespassers.

You can keep people in other factions from joining (except the faction leaders, people with spy and ambassador ranks and our close allies), try to recruit new Rainosians (politely, of course) and catch any comments that need moderation. There's not much that anyone needs to do at present, but hopefully that will soon change. Feel free to make improvements or changes.

I'm going to be offline until next Tuesday (possibly), so Night Reaper and Toa Infernum are in charge. Don't start a civil war... or do, rather; it could be entertaining. Anyway, those two will have full authority over Rainos in my absence, but FNJ is always a good source of advice or information if you have questions that no one else can answer. See you all later!

I'm not sure where your timeline is coming from, but not even one year has passed since Yapdap's last LOM build and he made one comment in the main group about a month or two ago. That means that he still has the chance to return and lay partial claim to the city, although I doubt that he will. Also, this is more or less an anarchic state, so the "laws" are more like "guidelines".

As for its rulers hip I have an idea:

The Board of Hadran. This court shall comprise of four people:

1) th traditional Troytanion Imperator.

2) a military expert.

3) a representative of the Archdruid College

4) some-one popular, or very convincing to speak for the people.

Every half-year the Board shall democratically elect its head, who shall act as The Lord of Hadran.

Board members ( who are not the Imperator ) can be released of their position at any time by superior people.

If Rego can get over his urge to kill a dragon as soon as he sees it, that could work. Also, the three of us are pretty much the only active members at present, although I'm hoping to earn some by increasing our Flickr presence.
