- Jul 2, 2007
Opinions here, and info next.
A principality would be a shortcut fraught with peril. Although it would sidestep the problem of maintaining TGS's status of Province, it would engender seperatist fears from the Midlands, and possibly even the Kingdom. No group in the history of the Midrealm has gone Principality without then proceeding to independent kingdom.
I'll have more info from some of the folks from the Shell Barony of Brendoken on the next post. I just got back from RUM there, and spoke to a few of the principle people who helped create it. Very informative!

At the risk of there being a later reponse than this.....
Some years ago there were serious conversations at the Kingdom curia
level about whether one of the ways to make the Midlands a bit more
'workable' (my term, not theirs) was to create it as a principality, one
never intended to become a kingdom. It's not a heretical thought, but I
suspect you'll only find support for it as the entire Midlands, not just
everything North of I-80.
