Have you enjoyed the parallels of the Laws Of The Land? Virtual Suburbanites comment won my imagination. Shall we call the upcoming proposal 'The Wardia Chronicles'? Other titles may be submitted too.
Having been given a very brief historic overview of feudalism, having read the pros and cons over many political and human issues on various blogs, how about an interactive story? The only rules are that posts make reference to values in the Law Of The Land, parts I, II and III when referring to episodes in our lives today. And outrageous profanity will not make it into the storyline. I'll copy/paste pertinent comments into the main story and see where our imaginations take us. Are you ready?
Once upon a time there the kingdom of Ogacihc ruled by the King of All Lands. The King of Ogacihc was often a very funny king, laughing as he stumbled over his own gaffes. His held many celebrations in his kingdom with parades and ribbon tournaments. People would flock to Ogacihc to see the great glass towers and the river of green. As with all kingdoms, Ogacihc had nobles and peasants – and there became an overabundance of homage and fealty to build towers and keep the river green.
There were times when the king would wipe tears from his eyes in sadness. His kingdom was divided into fifty fiefdoms run by his 50 contracted lords of the fiefs. Those fiefs were subdivided into lesser fiefs to help the lords manage their lands. When the king held court the barons gathered to plan the method to collect homage and fealties from the people. There were great debates among the lords accusing one another of taking more than their fair share for their fiefs.
Within the kingdom was a lesser kingdom of Drawoh. The Baron of Drawoh ruled over the vassals and serfs there. There were so many people to please, to appease, to keep in line, it was an exhausting job.
There were good knights and knights with very little concept of chivalry, morality or humility.
There were many bishops, priests and vicars in as many churches and cathedrals as well. So many people, so many taxes, so little time.
