+ Laws Of The Province d’Avignon +


I. Conseil d’Avignon:
Formed; Sunderday, the 17th of Winterfeast, during the year of our Empress, Ignis Synnove; 2260, The Conseil d’Avignon is a Council formed to advise the Marquis of Avignon on the various topics and problems that may come forward. Being named to the Conseil grants a minor nobility, and therefore the title of ‘Lord’ or ‘Lady’ will be given until their position is taken, stripped, resigned, or upon death.

-Master of Coin: Solely responsible for the funds of the realm and the pursuit of further funds and trade for the realm; Called upon for advice regarding trade, tax, and payment of hired workers.


-Master of Internal Affairs: Master of Affairs affecting the inner workings of the Province and the settlements within it; Usually relating to topics such as food and civil unrest.

-Master of Relations: Responsible for keeping the Relations with other Kingdoms, Duchies, Lords, and Families in tact, to ensure peace.

-Master of Men: Sole advisor for matters of Military and strategy regarding both defence and offence.

-Master of Law: Advisor regarding the writing of Laws and Edicts within the kingdom, as well as the judgement of criminals and sentences when the Marquis is not available to do so.

The luxury of the being named to the Conseil is one that is easily taken; The position of Lord or Lady of the conseil does not grant the individual the right to act above the law or act without the verbal or written permission of the Lord of the Province d’Avignon.
