    A Company of Strangers

    Post by Skur on Fri Oct 11, 2013 3:23 pm

    Over the past several weeks I have been thinking about what we should consider our selves in light that most of us want to organize. We have about 35 of us who for lack of a better term are refugees.

    Each one of us has been doing our own thing and sometimes we have done things with others. This has lead to some people being leaders. These leaders are not elected or appointed but they are leaders for the simple fact that others are following them. Some of these leaders may not even realize that they are leaders.

    As our numbers grow with each passing resurgence we will get to the point where we need to not be doing conflicting things. I have heard several different people try to form a government over us. Most of us already are a part of an existing government and we don't need another government we just need to organize into a company or group. This company would be directed by a council of leaders.

    *Looks up from his writings to Skur*

    Well, it seems that you have summarized things correctly Skur, but the problem is that at least half of us are indeed refugees, myself included. Your council idea sounds valid. My order had a council of leaders that numbered 7.

    My questions would be, who would get to be on this council, how many will there be and of course how will you or i should say we, meaning the town, appoint them?

    I would rather there not be any infighting for what may be to some a chance for power and influence, when we should be united in this decision.

    Xavier,

    Just looking at the past gathering we currently have four leaders. This is based my my observations on who follows whom. This works ideally because with only 35 members, having four managers is the best balance. As our numbers grow, we will need more managers.

    *Hobs overhears Skur*

    I agree Skur. A council is needed for general rules and laws. But your also going to need enforcement. When this council is formed make sure to discuss assigning an enforcement head. I would double him as a militia head for now as well.

    I'm more worried about the security and safety of the area right now. Sure we are on the offensive but how long until the fight comes to us? So far we could afford the hiccups but that's not going to last for very long.
