The Remaining Colleges
« on: March 14, 2013, 06:24:58 PM »
Okay, my plans for the final colleges are:

WOLFSON will join the Western Treaty

DOWNING will join the Republic

HUGHES HALL and HOMERTON will form THE EXARCHATE
Backstory: The fleeing administrators of the central University headed south to find safety, and then proclaimed the two remaining loyal southern colleges to be an Exarchate. They quickly lost power to the collegiate forces, and the Master of Homerton claims the title of "Exarch" and proposes reconquering Cambridge. On behalf of the University's unity, of course.

GIRTON, ROBINSON and CLARE HALL will form the KINGDOM OF THE OUTER LANDS
Backstory: As central Cambridge dissolved into warfare, the Mistress of Girton sent her forces south through the West Cambridge Site and the forests of Arbury on raiding missions, unable to take the main road from the Hill Confederacy. Girtonian raiding bands established the far outer colleges of Robinson and Clare Hall as allied raiding bases ready to prey on the weak Western Colleges or capture the Hill. The Mistress of Girton proclaimed the Robinson and Clare Hall masters to be Palatine Dukes, and gave the Girton Bursar a similar title and the college mastery, herself leaving her college ties to become the Queen of the Outer Lands. Unexpectedly killed in an ambush as she visited Clare Hall, her successor, the former Bursar, is now already the second monarch of the two week old Kingdom.

Everyone okay with these plans?

Suitably daft and shockingly plausible - this is perfect

On behalf of the Exarchate, this sounds great :D

Edited the Kingdom to account for the fact that Girton always has a mistress in actuality.  :P

Is it mistress for a female master? I'm fairly sure Emma's new master is just being called master.

I think mostly female masters are masters - I think it's a Girton thing.  :P

Small suggested tweak: Homerton has a Principal, not a Master.

Yeah, this looks a lot better.
My only niggle is- why isn't Churchill in with the other hill colleges? It isn't anywhere near the others in the Western Treaty.

Back in faction backstories here: http://exilian.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2385.0

We've put in that churchill disagreed with the confederacy and requested aid from the nearest other faction, the western treaty.

In practise it's to stop the hill colleges being over-powered too early in the game.
