Politics

Politics, n. From Poly-, meaning many, and Ticks, a blood-sucking parasite

  • Small city-states
    • Some form alliances, but there are no major kingdoms or empires…for now
  • Rulers determined by local customs
    • Examples:
      • Hereditary mayor/duke/etc.
      • Elected to limited term
      • Appointed by council (of elders, clergy, etc.)
      • Feats of strength/mind/magic (organized competition)
      • High religious order (self-appointed)
      • Relic of power/magic test (eg. Sword in the stone)
      • “Higher” racial majority subjugating “lower” race (eg. Elves ruling over a city of humans)
    • Of course, violent takeover and rule by dictator/military rule/etc. is also a possibility
