Great idea, very plausible and realistic, yet interesting. Go to Comment

Nicely done. Logical, useful, and one of those things you could see emerge out of history. Well executed and with lots of dramtic hooks applicable, these could be adapted to any number of setting. Go to Comment

Wow, this one has been buried for quite a while, but I will try to answer your concerns. If it were a normal military unit composed of nobles and the wealthy, it would be an unwieldy tool to say the least. However, service in the legion is punishment for some transgression, and if a noble cannot serve properly, they can expect to be pulled from the legion prematurely and given a new, much worse punishment. While the Faith at the current time has lost the ability to order men to death for incidental transgressions, the noble can still be placed in detention for an undetermined time, or simply excommunicated from the Faith. While this doesnt have the same social clout as excommunication from the medieval catholic faith, a noble devoid of clerical support is going to very quickly run afoul of his populace (also deprived of clerical aid)

Command within the legion is determined by the Confessor General of the Legion, with the rankings doled out based on experience and ability to follow orders. A highly skilled noble might get a high temporary ranking, but if he was obstinate, he could find himself fully under the command of a tractable baronet with less experience. It is a somehwat fluid situation, held by the force of the Confessor General's will, charisma, and the weight of clerical law. Go to Comment

I think the legion would be very difficult to command and control, with posh nobles everywhere...

How does rank within it work? Certainly, normal rank is not carried over into the legion, or is it? Subordination will be very strained with dukes having to obey a mere baronet. Go to Comment

Yup. You can change the freetext into 'silly' outright. I smiled on it, shaked head on the catchy modern-day ecological phrases, but didn't believe it for a second - unless it were in a Terry Pratchett book. Slightly amusing. Go to Comment

Kind of nifty, just because of the idea of the severe micromanagement. It would be possible to use this in a non-silly setting, I think, but it would be part of a larger picture and a beauracracy from hell, and I don't imagine that it would last long once the adventurers got involved. Go to Comment

Actually, it reminds me of a few Japanese videogames where people have to get licenses to enter dungeons or places with monsters... I could see it being done, though perhaps not for the reasons outlined here. Go to Comment

Okay. This is really silly. It is really funny, in a Terry Pratchett (Disc world) or Peter Davids (Sir Apropo series) sort of way. In a world of fractured fairtales or anime homage to the dungeons, this would happen. Go to Comment

Perhaps it's that i don't take stuff seriously enough (imagine that) But I liked this. It may never find it's way into a game setting but it made me smile and if you can't smile you might as well be dead. So bring on the funny!!! it keeps life interesting and wards off boredom. Oh and please don't feed the spiders or pick the plants. Go to Comment
