(A-RP) <The Scarlet Hammer> Level 25!
Hey guys, since there’s been some recent misunderstanding regarding the Council as a whole (IC and OOC both), and the position of Highlord’s Hand, and how they fit into the Hammer, I thought I’d clarify some things that may not have been as clear as they should have been.
For one, on an IC level, the Council serves primarily to provide advice to the Highlord, information on the status of the various sects, and standings with other organizations. When there is a large decision to be made, the Highlord will bring it before the Council, to see what course of action is most recommended. To ensure that the Highlord does not hold too much power if they’ve grown corrupt, the Council can veto their decision, if it is unanimous. Each Council member is also given command of Crusade forces, generally from their own sect. The Council is predominantly filled with the heads of the various Crusade sects, but with the need for officers rising, others may also take a seat on the Council. Said individuals tend to serve as Executors, ensuring that the Crusaders are following the word of the Highlord, and that order is maintained.
On an OOC basis, the Council is the bulk of the Hammer officer core. Each sect has an officer within the Council (empty positions are filled as quickly as possible, in the case of an officer leaving), and each Council member is given IC and OOC responsibilities. One of the biggest misunderstandings, I think, is that officers of the Council who lead sects are of a higher OOC stance than officers who don’t lead sects. This is not true, of course. All officers hold equal OOC power, unless otherwise specified (I.e sub-officer.)
The Highlord’s hand, from an IC standpoint, is the Highlord’s most trusted Advisor, and holds a seat amongst the Council, with equal power to what they hold. Any time the Highlord is not available, the hand serves as his voice, giving out whatever order he deems fit.
OOC, the position of Highlord’s Hand is for the Co-GM of the Hammer, who takes the reins of guild leader whenever I’m unavailable. (Currently filled by Cassarian).
Hope that clears up some of the confusion, guys, many thanks.
