    Well,
    1. Repetitive sure, but now that there is a government, it will do its job to ensure that things are allocated appropriately. This is what happens when you want to go off on your own and do your own thing on land that "technically" does not belong to you or the people under your banner. 
    2. Council. Also, there would probably be an already established outline to follow to give the ya or nah on stuff. It wouldn't have to be a big thing though! Could always shoot someone a pm and be like: Hey I want this piece for this reason and this reason, what do you say? Then go from there. It would just be a good idea to have something established so that it makes sense in the long run.
    Yes. It's not to be nit picky or breathing down anyone's neck, it's just keeping in the loop and doing things right. Agreements can be made to ensure that all parties are operating under the same assumptions that this will be a smooth ride. 
    I really like the idea of perhaps meshing the two? The UM rep can be some NPC that show they are there keeping an eyeball on things and to keep relations warm and double the thread requirement, or if not both then keep the 1 page requirement but have the UM Rep be involved in at least one post. Having the Rep there, imo, holds more weight than the extra page because we all know how easily 2 pages can be pumped out by certain individuals.
    This may look like I'm picking on you who want to be independent but we have to consider how we want the government to run and how they would look at these things. 
     I am all for this!
    Before you get too excited about your land, don't forget that you will be giving some of said Uldwar land to Mythal due to how Redtank was killed off because of the big ol 'splosion that happened. But to answer your question:
    No they wouldn't have to ask permission to become a vassal of Uldwar, since Uldwar is now part of the independent portion of UM. That is something they would have to run between yourself and the Kingdom you are part of.
    Now, if the dwarves set up shop on land that does not already belong to the Uldwar Clan they are welcome to do so and do their own thing. If they want to align with an outside entity, then there will have to be a discussion since they had set up shop acknowledging the governmental body that rules said land and then defecting to another ruling body. If it is already Uldwar land, then you can do whatever you want in your sandbox. 
    At least that's what I think considering all things, others may have a better opinion on it.

    Art trade v.2?
    This is a v cool possibility.
    and yup they're north since the Hildebrand dot is supposed to be north of Andelusia (just havent updated map yet) and Misral is north ish of Corinth
    It boils down to this, yeah.
    It might be a case by case basis on the process, but it'll have to come down to an agreement like, "this city wants to join the north, the council needs to approve it" or "hildebrand wants to buy this one nice valley for farming" or "norkotia has decided magic is ok after all and a bunch of them want to migrate and set up a small town."
    Maybe it could be a set of general guidelines. For example, expansion threads might be required to have a rep from ursa maindeum involved in at least one post. Or the thread requirement could be doubled.
    I def support building on existing territory though, bc deeper > wider development. Maybe it's time to move past the land expansion phase of UM and work towards developing what's already there. Hildebrand alone already has more than 50sq miles which is equivalent to a square on the UM map grid. Das a lot.

    Okay, another question to chew on:
    Say we let these outside entities buy land, what should the steps entail IC (outside the usual business)? Would it  be more difficult since this request needs to go through the new government? I'm thinking that since they would have to ask to purchase this land, land that belongs to the established government they do not acknowledge, it won't be SUPER DUPER EASY as it has been before all this. Would we say "Give me a 2 page thread to buying this land" or keep it 1 page? Do we go to the council and then up to the King? Or do we go directly to the King and cut out the middle man?
    Say this entity wants to build and all that within the borders it has already established, I see no issues with that. Build your towers, make your walls, grow you fields! There I don't think permission needs to be given because that makes sense, to me, that you do what you want with the things you have. When you want to play with someone else's toys, you need to ask though.

    I feel like, since the new government (we should get names for both factions... and logos/flags, unless the factions die quickly ofc) would logically claim to rule the whole of the islands, any expansion attempts by the new kingdom will automatically become border disputes, and be viewed as encroachment upon the main government's territory.
    So I feel like Grubb's idea of a transaction is the best way. That and/or having diplomatic claims.
    Another could be if localities (lesser lords, city mayors/elders, etc) were to renounce allegiance to the main government or their lieges, and instead defect to the "Northern Kingdom" (are they actually north...?), then that can be another way of doing it. But that would still likely be a matter of dispute each time it happens.
    I'd try to be keeping up better with this conversation, but frucking jobs, ya know? Only have time now since it's lunch.

    Not over thinking at all! It's something to think about and expand on because UM is now in a different state than when it began. Now that there is going to be a Kingdom that doesnt recognize the overall government, we gotta decide what the consequences will be for that and how we can appropriately adjust to make things fair for all parties.
    I've got some thoughts and I'll get to them here in a bit!

    Yeah, this. Wasn't clear how I phrased it but vi asked me earlier if it was something like Hildebrand having to ask permission IC every time they had a new land expansion, and I said it should be sth like an equal agreement between both ursa maindaum and ursa north. But that's still up for discussion.
    Iirc expansions have mostly been either (1) construction/infrastructure projects on unhabited land or (2) rehabilitating/taking control of existing, independent towns. Hildebrand's going by the latter route with its most recent threads.
    I'm not 100% sure how to go about land expansions with the north kingdom after the UM divide. Before new gov each house basically ruled over its own territory, but now UM as a whole (minus hildebrand and uldwar) will now have a proper govt.
    So its like, should the new kingdom only be allowed to expand land near its existing territories? Can they do whatever in rural, uninhabited places near their territory that arent existing town? Maybe we should just draw a border on the map? But hildebrand already has a city in Thraece aside from its Corinth land. Business transaction could work, or just a mutual agreement.
    I might be overthinking this. Sry if this post is scattered, it's been a long day.

    Mas questions!! Imma keep this ball rolling here until there are things set in stone.
    So when it comes to the independent people, do you guys feel it necessary that they take an extra step (contacting the Council and such) when they wish to expand? 
    Keeping if player fair, we could keep the 1page = this much land for everyone. Just say IC this and this and this had to be done to claim it?
    Thoughts and feelings (maybe prayers).

    I would assume for ease and sense Corinth, Thraece, and Misral will be under the rule of the new government. And that said, with Andelusia being the capital of UM, it would be under the new government.
    Whoever went independent, their land and such belongs to them even though that land "technically" belongs to the new government. When things are more set in stone there will probably be some kind of standardization for those independent vs. those pro-new government when it comes to land. That's just speculation, so don't quote me on that! The government hasn't truly been established yet.

    Cool cool ? as the one going independent, I will be moving forward with the assumption that Hildebrand's lands are fully under their own control, having gained jurisdiction over them through their own efforts. Hildebrand's own kingdom/government is more or less established as a separate political entity, so I'll be waiting on the new UM gov to be finalized before further discussions on this matter ? thanks!

    A face of pain even in rejoice over the Graduation hid well in it's rights beyond false contempt.
    Yet, he had to remain in formation as Shushou of his Class only just a bit longer. Gin still refused to let up - his lack of discipline, he was clumsy, he was definitely overrated. By now the ogre's mask muttered under his breath again, realizing he was ignored the second time and carried his joys to someone across to Akira of the Hiwatori in annoyance.  Ozu was making way towards the little voice of Kaori in the boxseats. The Emperor's personal favor of him was to keep a safe eye on her, protect her, that in a time he was unable to be there to prevent harm to her; Ozu would be there in their defense as her Hogo-Sha. The girl could remember being around the Moromichi maybe on the count of her ten fingers, though the time they've spent seemed like nearly 24hrs on a consistent. She'd never forget his features even from afar; the jagged dark brown hair and bang covering his scarred right eye.
    Overlooking the entire Tsukimi from the edge of the balcony she sat.
    "My little sister,  it's you is it?"
    Shimai was what he referred her to, which was weird considering his secret crush on her mother. Waving an gentle hand of hello in a graceful deep bow he went acknowledging the Emperor amongst several other Officials especially, Shogun Yanaihara. However, soon exiting towards the ground and further towards the People to engage did he lift Kaori onto his shoulders so playfully. How ironic did the young wolf envision himself almost in the shadows of their images. Father and Daughter, dejavu nearly; except the adolescent boy replicated the existence of it being "real" in memories that never existed between he and the bastard Yoshihide. The only feelings he could remember were hate and resentment for the man that abandoned him, his mother, their village - they would have never shared such an experience as that.   Envious maybe, that he never truly had a father. 
    "Stay in formation Akira, the Emperor is amongst us remember?"
    While admiring her for kindness towards Gin would have seemed next, he instead went further in his proclamation as Shushou over the New Moons. The Niwatori Clan while he knew very little of them, he would learn more of them through Akira as time went forward, that she could excel alongside the rest of his Class long as she put forth the work of course. Speaking for himself, Ozu was still in fact wet behind the ears for an Okami yokai perhaps, but he believed in the Arts and dedicated himself solely into his days of nothing but strict Katas, exercise, and small casual spars. The people of the Nation believed in Rising Sun, significantly, Kenshi Momoku their Soke … They honored him like a hero, his morals, any thing he said; it didn't matter because he had power over the people, influence and they felt highly esteemed of his accomplishments.
    As every one was reforming into their designated columns or ranks within their class from the corner of his single almond eye, his female rival approached scowling down his spirit the tiny hairs on his body begin to stand - knowing that his cousin was unpredictable and vengeful towards him. He remembered, their last pair-up against each other since his slight victory over her, there wasn't a day he hadn't seen her take a break from Martial training. Since then, he’s always been weary of her being around she'd sucker punch him out of nowhere. He was never afraid to give her that Round Two if she willed a second knot to her head. Thankfully, veneering past in her flashy looks and the presence of a tough chick's persona, he remained strong and poised fixated on the Soke and his declaration as if Mikazuki hadn't passed him at all. Great?!

    The little one was quiet, a strange change to one so full of curiosity that nearly spills from her very being. She had wanted to see the whole goings on due to the hum about the ceremony. There was so much to be said about it, making the adults get all dressed up in celebration and the commoners itch with anticipation. There was absolutely no way she was going to allow her father just to enjoy this moment without her being there, not when she can learn so much about these parties adults fear and enjoy so much. 
    Within the shadows, the little one lurked, weaving through the legs of bystanders and slipping by hovering forms with too much ease. Not a day of training, but already she was allowing the natural flow of the world around her to push and pull her. The intricacies of what she is have made the little one aware of how much of the worlds magic and life flows through her, but the understanding of such eludes her sweet mind. What matters, according to her mother, is how wide she smiles, how loud she laughs, and how proud she makes her father. Everything else will come in time, and with that in mind, there is no need to rush to become a more magnificent piece to the puzzle that's her family lineage. 
    Beside him, the shadows shift to reveal the delicate form of Kaori who had a ready smile pasted on her face. Dressed appropriately for a child with high honors attached to her name, and not like a child who had rolled in mud hours before or stomped through flower gardens chasing frogs. Grabbing handfuls of the delicate fabric, the child climbed into her father's lap with as much grace as a toddler can ever muster. The flower charms attached to the pin in her hair swung back and forth, creating a small tune as she gets comfortable in her proclaimed seat.
    "Pèrtè!"
    The Renovatian word for Father slid past her lips with ease, and the proud achievement was exemplified by a small giggle followed by a kiss to her father's cheek. Celine had been teaching her both languages, but Kaori found the Renovatian lilt to be more fun in comparison to her father's language. He had yet to say anything about what he'd prefer her to say, what language would better her as his child and make him proud, so she followed her mother's advice under otherwise told. 
    Happy, the toddler sat up to look over the edge of the balcony. The entire scene of wonderment was unfolding before her, yet the little one did not appear at all interested in any of it. Maybe living a rather luxurious life has dampened her excitement towards anything this grand, or perhaps her childish mind was far too occupied by something else. When she found what she was looking for, her honey-colored eyes became bright, and the excitement she had withheld was soon released.
    "Ozu! Ozu!"
    She waved her arms excitedly, thinking he'd see her wave at him with all her might.
