1968Re: barony vs shell barony
- Feb 1, 2008First of all both are Baronies. The differentation is how it is put
Shell barony is like a pie with slices in it. The cantons would be
the slices. Each is individual unto itself, has its own qualities,
and in this case its own canton officers. It would, along with all
the other pieces of the pie (cantons) make up the barony. Something
like how counties make up a state. The Barony would have its
officers as well as a Baron and/or Baroness. Anyone from any group
can be a Baronial Officer including Baron and/or Baroness.
The other way of having a Barony, that I am aware of, is more like
soviet era USSR. You have the main unit which makes up a Barony and
then you have satelite units that make up Cantons seperate from the
main barony but associated with it. It is my understanding that
only those people inside the Barony group could be Baronial Officers
but I may have that wrong.
These descriptions may be inexact and certainly bow to better
descriptors and way things are done.
It is my (imperfect) understanding that further Baronies created
will follow the shell barony model.
