RE: [Ayreton] PIB Candidates and warrants
Warrants for a Baronial officer are signed by the Crown and the Great Officer of State. Both must find the candidate acceptable. More often than not, if a candidate is not acceptable, it will be the Great Officer that vetos it. I have seen instances where the Crown refuses to warrant someone, but they are the exception.
16 more days as a Great Officer
… You receive your warrant after you have been found acceptable by the Crown (usually via the kingdom officer for the office you wish to hold)…
