We have had bad luck this game with the Faction leaders or designated players going AWOL. I have suggested we appoint a Regent to the Crown for the Arkadian Dynasty. A short poll has seen support for such a position to help stop the disruption of Gameplay. Discussing the Regents Powers- The Regent is either appointed by the King if he is active, or elected by the APR members in his absence. If the King is absent for 3 days without notice the Regent would assume the Crown as Interum King. If the King fails to appoint a designated player in an announced absence the Regent would become the DP. The Regent is the sole heir to the throne and becomes King if his predecessor has to step down.
