- Well thats a good question. It was the intent that the House vs the
Shires would allow those individuals that wanted to be Consortium be
exactly that, no matter where you resided or move to. So if
everything remains the same as was the concept at the last C&C then
yes you get to vote and all those other things we do, enter A&S,
fight for champion all that good ol Consortium stuff. You could even
run for Weard though "we" thought changing it to House Stewart futher
instilled the Household thought. That is all up to debate now.
