At it core level, I do not think adventurers should hold legal sway over other adventurers. Nobles do paperwork, adventurers do work.Would you care to be more specific about what you don't like?
Rits cast without an extender are now base 1 year. You have been around to long dear Havok.Maybe I'm mistaken but A spell crafted circle last as many days as the amount of high magic you put into it. A circle put up without any sort of extender only last five days?
Respectfully, no circles of powers last a year (let's ignore extend battle magic). Circles are either 5 days, 5 years, or permanent.Rits cast without an extender are now base 1 year. You have been around to long dear Havok.
Magus/Consul/Enchanter are used interchangably, you may wish to edit for clarification.
If we do not rule ourselves, the Empire will rule us. And they have the means to do so. The populace as a whole decided to leave the Valdanian nobles in charge, so we are dealing with the bureaucracy side of things.If we have to satisfy some qualification of the Empire, then we should do the minimum required, or not be a part of them.
Adventurers don't do well with bureaucracy.
In my opinion, that is preferable. At least if it's tyranny the adventurers can rise up together to deal with it. When the waters get muddied, it's much harder to see clearly.If we do not rule ourselves, the Empire will rule us.
Respectfully, there is always a choice.I'm not sure I gave the townsfolk a choice Alana
