    This faction is ruled by a King or Queen, because it is a Constitutional Monarchy with a council of advisers similar to Parliament, called the Chest of :gp: The Monarch listens to their council, and since every person is on the council, and a new council meeting will be held frequently, it keeps the game going and the Monarch will listen to the voice of the nation and try not to dictate like the triad. It's called the cycles because we focus on no single game element, and whichever Arete needs the most, we can focus on that temporarily. So we cycle through the game elements, instead of focusing on just one. You may post in the thread, or PM me if you want to join.

    There are four positions in the CoA:
    King: Rules the CoA, but does not dictate
    Member of the Chest of :gp:: Is able to attend council meetings and is part of the faction.
    Honorary member of the Chest of :gp:: Is able to attend council meetings, but they are not part of the CoA. Their faction is allied with the CoA.
    Citizen: Is able to attend a council meeting, but may not speak. Their faction is not allied with the CoA
    Current King:
    Cyc

    Chest of :gp:
    Oldschooler88

    Honorary Members
    No honorary members.

    P.S. I have resigned from the PoF to create this faction, which will run in the PFE3.

    They would post declaring their entrance into the CoA, like any other faction.

    Ok, thank you, but you might want to get that in your first post becuse it is a core rule to state how faction mmebers may join.

    If this faction were to win, would members of the opposing faction be allowed to swear allegiance to this faction if denouncing their previous allegiance (and in turn become members of the chest?)

    If Warlords are given a heavy hand in military affairs, I may consider this, but then this should be a complete offer, not halfways.

    If you wish, I can put you on the Co:gp:, because I'm not too skilled at millitary on Monarch. So, if you want, you may join.

    With Provolution as your main Military Advisor, I would be tempted to join. It appears there are no real titles for your Cabinet members. Will this tendency remain, or will positions eventually come about? Just for the sake of knowing.

    We could have specialization, but there are no titles for the sake of :gp: importance.

    Count me in as supreme military leader and rulership as feudal lord of Edorai (I assume we want Serfdom and Vassalage, along with Hereditary Rule and Organized Religion)?

    Warlords is hereby with Cycles of Arete, where it all began, Arete.

    You guessed right, Provolution. I stand behind behind my brothers of the COA. Long live the Cycles of Arete.

    I nominate Cyc to be the Lord Steward of the realm (we are medieval now and should have medieval titles). As a military commander, I am happy with the title Lord Marshal.

    Lord Steward should also revive and maintain the land grant system, for which I have an idea to reinvigorate the game (get more people).

    Please confirm that the organization of this faction is not being changed on the eve of elections.

    The organization isn't being changed, but now, since we have more than two members, we can specilaize more than just plain titles, but no one is higher than the other in political power. The specializations are not titles, and I will keep it that way for eternity.

    Why are you posting in a different factions thread, what is the reason for that?

    Also, we could use the titles for roleplay reasons.
