      First 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.
