A Gathering of Royals:
This is a formal meeting of 3 or more Royals in order to review or effect policy changes within ELS or the kingdoms it rules over. At a level too high or too sensitive for the High Council to deal with. The Emperor or one with the title of Queen / King / Grand Lord / Oracle in the Emperors extended absents must be present for the gathering to be considered official. If not any changes made will be subject to the Emperors review upon his return.
Founders are spread through out the kingdom. Founders walk in secret among the elves and are known only to each other. While they have no formal powers their presence is felt through out the realms. Founders are deemed so because they have proven their undying loyalty to the kingdom by both personal sacrifice and with honor. There can only be 8 founders per kingdom. Although they may have different titles the keen observer can easily spot a founder for only a founder may access the secure chests or place a vendor on elven property. Founders should contribute regularly in some form to the Realms prosperity.
The War Tribunal:
Those whom votes are sought in order to sue the High Council for the declaration of an overt war:
The Emperor, Prince, Imperial Viceroy, Imperial Grand Lord, Imperial Magistrate, Count Forge, Lord of War and the Oracle are those needed to create the tribunal. If any 4 of this tribunal alone or more then 6 together vote for war the High Council must agree to vote on the subject of war and if that vote passes, then conditions of war will go into effect. Conditions of war will be shared with all by the Grand Lord once the council has agreed on them.
The High Council:
A Group composed of all Ladies and Lords that hold sway over the different realms in the House of Lords. This house is chaired by the Grand Lord and is overseen by the House of Royals and by certain members of the House of Seers. Every Lord and Lady has a vote in matters that maybe brought before the council by any Royal. Only Royals may decide what matters are to be brought before the council to vote on. Any Lady or higher may approach a royal with a suggestion to be brought before the council for a vote. All counsel members also agree to be points of contact in times of trouble. They may also be called to vote a Royal back in as keeper of the stone. Each lord has the ability to recruit friends of theirs into the realm. Each member of the council is expected to host at least one hunt a month. They should also each have the ability to recall if needed and have Icq. This house once full will also vote on who within it or the House of Seers or Regales may next quest for Royalty. If a Lord wishes to recruit a Bane (the Elven word for strange or stranger) into ELS, they must first show the Bane the book of ELSeWords they are asked to read and agree with it. The Lord then introduce the Bane to a fellow Lady or Lord in the council, if both agree the Helos (elven for friend or trusted ally) is then brought before a Royal or the Emperor.
