The Three Pillars Of Stormstead society


  • Community

The Community is the solid foundation of the Village itself upon which all else relies. They are the walls and fences that protect those that live there, the buildings and branches that provide shelter, the people there whom we all can rely, and the resources upon which growth can take hold.

Examples of tasks that reinforce the Community include collecting or preserving food, donating raw materials or finished goods, aiding those who need it within the village, participating in village projects or repairs, or even introducing new wanderers to the village life.

  • Service

The Service of Stormstead envelops those and that which employ and educate our citizens. From tailor to tutor, these individuals know what it takes to fulfill the needs of the other citizens. Thanks to them, the economy grows and as does the camaraderie of repeat customers. Examples of tasks that reinforce town Services include Working or Patroning a business, attending, participating, or hosting an event, teaching others a skill or trade, or even writing or delivering the news for others.

  • Security

Stormstead Security is one of the most important parts of society. Without security thieves run rampant, there is mistrust between citizens, and threats to our way of life can grow and sow discord. Associated with this is the Guard, as they serve a vital role in maintaining peace within the village. Examples of tasks that reinforce town Security include reporting suspicious behavior and activity, settling conflicts between Stormstead citizens or visitors, acting in defense of Stormstead or its citizens, and actions taken to remove a threat to Stormstead society.

StormsteadGovernor

Rank Six: The Governor

No Gods or Kings rule in Stormstead. Such is their way. A better way.

Instead, a leader is chosen from among the citizens in a process called The Choosing. All are equally considered when the time comes for a new leader to take their place at the Council table. To discriminate by virtue of species, class, gender or skin colour is of the old way, the soon to be forgotten way.

The Governor’s power is a power granted to them by their followers, the citizens of the town and the opinions they carry. Should a leader become unfit, a new one may rise to take the place of the old. It is the duty of the People, of the Militia to ensure their leader does not fall into the ways of tyranny.

The Governor upholds the Laws, and is the final word in matters of justice and order. They follow a strict Code, put in place by those who have gone before. They hold and maintain The Codex, a listing of all residents sworn to the town and reports of their deeds.

The Governor works closely with the council, heeding their advice as well as that of those below them. They serve the people above all else, working always for the Greater Good.
