    Based on talk w/Prof yesterday:
    @Prof-Misclick please fill in the parts I dont remember

    1. Matrim Kingsley marries Kestrem Vaylan, combining Obarskyr & Goldfeather lines
      a. It's a political marriage and they both know it
      b. People can be loyal to one or the other but rarely both
      c. Arabel remains independent from Comryr, but not at war with them
    2. Factions
      a. Council remains as an "Avengers" type group, who are called upon by Kingsley and/or Vaylan
      b. Obyn takes over Misrim - it becomes more like the Mafia, legit businesses with shady stuff on the downlow
      c. Islyn (if the real one is found by then) really marries a Mossmere, they establish a Wizards & Bards "college" (If real Islyn isnt found, then Mossmeres do it on their own)
      d. "League of ?? (Cant remember the name)" - a mercenary faction
      e. Wildwalkers/druids - doing the nature thing
    3. I'm sure there was more but I just woke up and cant think of it

    If the players push it in that direction right?

    I think this would be a good general aim, and the players could influence who the strong figure in the council is? Depending on player action, the monarchy has more or less influence.



  • Wouldn't it be about six million times more fun for everyone if the actual overall ruler, is the result of what players do leading up the Chapter 2?

    Ok, maybe five million times.

    Probably not, none of the players have expressed interest in this

    Really? I find it dubious that essentially one of the main draws of CoA since... always, is no longer a thing, that being, players effecting the game world.

    Yep, marriage etc to be done off screen once White Horde is done?

    Pending today's event, Islyn is in a much stronger position than she was before

    Yep
