Governance and Structure

Above all else Lor Voskara is a meritocracy, meaning those that contribute to the community are rewarded. Each title a citizen accumulates is a reflection of their willingness to support their fellow mann and put the Kingdom and its needs before selfish desires.

Advisory Council

These individuals support the king by offering their advice, ideas and expertise on all levels of Kingdom business. They are appointed because of their unwavering dedication to the Kingdom and their continual and ongoing contribution to its success, in this they are given specific authority to act on behalf of the King. Membership is by invitation only and there is no rank or title restriction on becoming a part of the Advisory Council.

Nobility

Consisting of those that hold the hereditary title of Duke, Duchess, Count or Countess, and all variation thereof, the nobility is expected to see to the needs of the Kingdom, their demesne and its Citizens. Working with their liege lords to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes, the nobility is free to manage their land and their patrons as they see fit within the over aching laws that govern the Kingdom. A Duke/Duchess that displays suitable drive, determination, commitment to the community and potential will have their land holding expanded, as long as doing so brings no harm to the stability of the Kingdom. A Count/ess that shows suitable drive, determination, commitment to the community and potential will be raised to the title of Duke/Duchess through whatever means necessary, as long as doing so brings no harm to the stability of the Kingdom.

Aristocracy

Consisting of those that hold the granted title of Mayor or Baron, and all variations thereof, these individuals govern and make productive their localised holdings within their liege lord’s demesne. Working with their liege lords to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes, the aristocracy is free to manage their holding and their patrons as they see fit within the over aching laws that govern the Kingdom or their contract. An aristocrat that shows suitable drive, determination, commitment to the community and potential will be raised to the title of Count/ess through whatever means necessary, as long as doing so brings no harm to the stability of the Kingdom.

Citizens

Consisting of those free men and women who hold no title but may hold land. The citizens of the Kingdom are free to peruse whatever profession, activity or career they wish within the overarching laws that govern the Kingdom. Citizens are roughly broken into two groups:

1. Basic caste: These are men and women who ply their trade primarily for the benefit of themselves and are free to do so. Their skill and labour is primarily self-affecting and holds no sway over others.

2. Advanced caste: These are men and women who have advanced their profession to a point where they have gained a certain amount of notability or have limited command of others (such as a guild leader). Their professionalism has naturally lent itself to the development of the Kingdom.

Citizens that show suitable drive, determination, commitment to the community and potential will be raised to the title of Aristocrat through whatever means necessary, as long as doing so brings no harm to the stability of the Kingdom.
