Barfon Culadum


  1. Earl: Leader of the county, head of the royal family.
  2. Count: Leader of a province, and head of a greater noble family.
  3. Viscount: Leader of a shire, and head of a lesser noble family.
  4. Thane: Leader of a fief, head of a gentry family.
  5. Landman: Runs an estate, member of the gentry.
  6. Marchman: Member of the aristocracy. Serve at all levels of government.
The noble families all have representatives in the Barfon Council, chosen by the heads of said families. Among other powers, the Barfon Council makes all laws, declares war, regulates inter-province and foreign commerce, and controls taxation and expenditures. The laws are enforced by the Oak Order, a group of knights who swear loyalty directly to the earl and his household. They command at all levels within the army and town guard. Cities maintain their own guard and are assigned a knight from the order to lead them. Magistrates chosen by the counts interpret the law and hear claims and grievances on their behalf from a courthouse in a city. Every city has five magistrates appointed to serve for a week at a time. Any who wish to have a case heard must make the trip to the city that covers their jurisdiction. Cities have aristocratic councils governing their affairs, led by a mayor chosen from the gentry.
