Expectations of the Landed Nobility of Ayreton - Initial Draft
- Greeting All!
As a refresher, one of our requirements for advancement to Barony is that we state our expectations for the Landed Nobility of Ayreton.
What have other groups done?
Mostly they have about a half page document five to ten points that lists what they would like the Baron and/or Baroness to do. They are what you would probably expect things like "Support the Barony, Attend Baronial Meetings, Encourage Growth, Attend Baronial Events" and the such.
As I mentioned in my last email about this part of the Baronial advancement, we would take any opportunity we could to start talking about these expectations. Specifically, in-between the Charter Meeting and the Business Meeting.
Our Charter meeting for July ended early so we took some time to start brainstorming. Below are the results of what the assembled people came up with for an initial draft.
We will meet again at the before the September Business Meeting at 5 pm. Please attend if you are interested in the topic. You may also forward me any comments you would to be shared during the meeting. Comments should be sent by the Friday before the meeting.
Please read and consider! We need everyone to be involved to please share your thoughts!
See you soon,

- Greetings all,
The link I am posting is to an article by Duchess Katerina O'Callaghan on being a Territorial Baron and Baroness. While the article is written for the Kingdom of Atenveldt the majority of the information is relevant what would and could be expected of a landed B&B for Ayreton. There are also two interesting role-playing exercise for people who may be thinking of running for the B&B positions at the end of the artical.
