RULING COUNCIL - Achaea Online Help
10.2 RULING COUNCIL
The ruling council of a city-state is comprised of either five or seven members. In most cases, these members are elected by the populace via the methods described in HELP ELECTIONS. HELP <city> will show you who the members of the ruling council are. In cities with a strictly theocratic government, council members are appointed by the divine patron(s). While the perceived responsibilities of a ruling council may vary in the eyes of each citizen, it can safely be said that the ruling council must take credit, or blame, for what happens to their city. While the power to actually affect most city-related things lies in the hands of the Ministers and their aides, it is the ruling council who chooses the leader and appoints Ministers. If Ministers or the leader are doing a poor job, that would be the concern of the ruling council. As a member of a ruling council, you may use the following commands: CITY CLAN LIST - View the clans that are owned by your city. CITY ENEMY/UNENEMY <person> <reason> - Brand someone an official enemy of your city. CITY ALLY/UNALLY <person> - Add/Remove someone as a city ally. CITIZEN <person> - Make someone a citizen of your city. CITY ECONSTATUS - See some basic economic info on your city. CITYDISFAVOUR <person> - Grant your city disfavour to a person. CITYFAVOUR <person> - Grant your city favour to a person. CITY MUTE/UNMUTE - The syntax is: CITY MUTE <infidel> <TEMP|INDEFINITE> <reason>. TEMP will mute for an hour then wear off. INDEFINITE will mute until someone does CITY UNMUTE on the muted person. The reason will be recorded in the city logs. This is on a trial basis only. Cities abusing this power to mute left and right will find they no longer have access to it. FUNDS <ministry> - See the funds level for a selected ministry. Must be in the Council Room for this. Will not work on the Stewardship. READENLISTLOG/ENLISTLOG - Same as READLOG in HELP CITYCOMMANDS, but shows you logs for enlistment that day.
