RULING COUNCIL - Lusternia Online Help

10.5 RULING COUNCIL

The ruling council of a city or commune is composed of the Guildmasters 
associated with its nexus of power and the leader who is elected by the 
general population. See HELP ELECTIONS. HELP <city> will show you who the 
members of a ruling council are.

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 and blame for what happens to their city or commune. 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, who confirms the Ministerial choices. If the Ministers or the 
leader is doing a poor job, it is up to the ruling council to fix the 
situation.

As a member of a ruling council, you may use the following commands:


CITIZEN <person>               : Make someone a citizen of your city.
UNCITIZEN <person>             : Kick someone out of your city.

WELCOME <person>               : Make someone a member of your commune.
OSTRACIZE <person>             : Kick someone out of your commune.

BRAND <person> ENEMY <reason>  : Brand someone an official enemy of your city.
                                 Due to the time it takes to propagate the
                                 order to the guards, this will not take
                                 effect until the beginning of the next

                                 enemy in terms of not taking effect until
                                 the next month.
