    Despot = Emperor. Imperial government had nothing to do with Feudalism.

    Royalty also was well before the concept of Monarchy. The Monarchy technology represents the concept of a formalized relationship of power sharing by the great families of a nation.

    I would like to announce that Julius Lifespannius is Diutius's 17th cousin twice removed. ;) Does he get to become royalty now? :p

    Actually, I just haven't differentiated Royal from Imperial yet in this thread. Yet. As I re-read some of the other rulesets, I do see where it does affect lifespan, so I should make it a point to specify. My apologies for any earlier confusion.

    The Despot and his immediate family are Imperial. Other Princes/Princesses are considered Royalty.

    If we become a Monarchy, the King will be Royalty, as will any other "Petty" or rival Kings. If some character becomes a "High King/King of Kings/Emperor" (i.e., a King holding the fealty of other Kings), then that character and his immediate family will be Imperial.

    I have a question. When you put someone in your noble house, do they become nobles??

    No. Children of nobles will have noble blood but illegitimate children, wards, adoptees, proteges, etc, would not be noble.

    BTW: When you get my house up there just put the Nero House. I was going to have it stand Nerano House since it sounds better for a house but I changed my mind...

    Will you kindly add Julius, Cornelia, Julia, and Fabian to the House of Peesea? Also, Honorius died in the dungeon of Gorina, and the Peesea family is now royal, now that they have ascended to the throne of Nar Shaaddaland.

    EDIT: Oops! That's Julius, not Janus.

    Are we allowed to be high nobles? Or do have to wait for monarchy?
