Page as VP

would it be possible to give the page a few powers, but no bennifits?
A few times the monarch goes AWOL and someone else needs to pick up and redoing voting doesn't always work.

I have asked for CFs as page thru messages while kingy was gone for a few days but couldn't ask formally. Also could have withdrawn earlier or hit button.

King gets benifits because he is supposed to be able to log in a lot and some times wake in the middle of the night. This is supposed to be fun though.

But revoting for someone else to be monarch does work - the person with the majority of votes becomes the monarch...

You only have power over people as long as you don't take everything from them.
But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power - he is free again.

Yup, the smart thing to do is split votes between Monarch and 2iC up, for example, thirteen:twelve or fourteen:eleven (unless you're a high enough honour kingdom). Then if you, as the 2iC, leave your vote on the proper Monarch most of the time; you could just move your own vote (and maybe one other person's) on yourself, for a few minutes, when you need the Monarch's options.

If all else fails, call someone a troll.
that can be fixed... / ∆

i kind of like this idea, maybe if king goes inactive for 48hrs the Page, or 'VP' becomes king? I would use Prince, and Princess rather than VP

It's really not as easy as you say it is. Not every kingdom is active enough or cares enough to revote when the monarch is inactive. Could takes days to revote.

I realise that. But even a ghetto can manage to switch one or two pivotal votes in order to switch monarchs as needed.

And if they can't, then I don't see how giving the page the powers of the monarch is going to help them that much.

You only have power over people as long as you don't take everything from them.

You could just have a system that lets the KD provinces vote for a vice-monarch. Just like voting for a King/Queen, but the vice monarch gets no bonuses, but if monarch is inactive for a period of time, vice monarch could take over. Then, when the monarch logs in, the monarch's powers are stripped from the vice monarch
- so basically the vice monarch IS the page.

That ONLY works in real active kds. In inactive kds, is when someone goes inactive, votes disappear.. Happened to me when I was monarch in a kd that had a lot of inactives.. Kept loosing monarchy. I knew that they had voted, saw they had voted.. They went inactive, checked again and no vote

I think we need an official Vice-monarch Position. I believe there is a huge need for it.

I dont like it. If the king goes awol then he should not be king. Do what most kingdoms do, split the votes between 2 people. That way if the king goes it only takes a vote from 1 province to switch the king. Dont all the other kingdoms do this?

To be completely honest all that would do is make the game more noob freindly. If your KD is so noob that you cant switch to another King in a matter of a hour or 2 at the max, you need to learn to play better. No have the game made easier for you...

"Hmph, you and your third dimension."
"What about it?" "Oh nothing, itís cute. We have five."
"Th-thousand."
"Yes five thousand."
"Donít question it."
