Default Mini-Moot

Two dukes of a pair of adjacent, but fairly isolated 3I sectors have agreed to host a "Moot" of their own, to collect proxies and represent the issues of counts and barons at the real Moot coming up in six or eight months. The nobles meet for wining and dining and diplomacy, horse trading among themselves to determine where their proxies go.

What sectors are interesting for this?

What issues might be forefront in the minds of the smaller nobles? They don't have to be canon issues, but they need to be plausibly canon issues.

Extra points if you include systems that host patents of nobility that will be physically represented at TravellerCon... (see what I'm doing here?)

the distribution of naval forces to better align with local threats (ie everyone wants a Batron stationed in their system)

the local nobles reaction to the recent passing (or the imminently expected passing) of a Core sector noble which has been representing their intrest in the Moot proper.

Rumors are flying that the Domain Archduke is planning to announce a major investment into starports and associated infrastructure along A major trade route in the sector. several worlds are looking to see if they can "prime the pump" , so to speak, and ensure their worlds are at the top of the list.

at a party held a few weeks ago, one major duke made a passing disparaging remark about another. the second duke has heard of this comment and is not going to let this insult stand. the rest of the sector nolbility are trying to stop the situation escalating into a full blown noble war.

Cool stuff!

I'm looking for goals to hand out to characters for a two-hour live-action role-playing event at TravellerCon. Basically, lots of interpersonal role-play and very little dice rolling (maybe some, but there won't even be character sheets).

People who have Patents of Nobility are free to represent those titles at this mini moot. Marc Miller is free to play, but he'd be the Emperor showing up for a little sector party... that would make things interesting. (Or I will hand him a pre-gen minor noble in the system.)

Actually, he could simply have himself announced as the Marquis of Usdiki (The Emperor's personal fief-world/retreat and subsidiary title - Usdiki/Gushemege 1015) . . .

A great issue would be how to cope with a Baron or Marquis who inherited but does not want to serve, but has no recognized heirs to abdicate for. Subissues:
Whom to suggest be promoted into it?
What to do about the noble?
Has he named an heir? If so, who? And do they support him?

or, as a alternative, the old baron has died and their is no legal heirs. the barony is currently vacant, held in trust by the local archduke until this moot declares their choice for who is going to receive the title, and various factions are trying to get one of "their" members or supporters named for the post.

Great ideas!

Any suggestions for a good sector or two to drop this?

in support of the recently posted encyclopedia of dagudashaag you could host it on upag (http://wiki.travellerrpg.com/Upag_(world)), one reason being it's right at the corner of four sectors.

another location would be mora(http://www.travellerrpg.com/CotI/Gal...ndex.php?n=731)
(http://www.travellerrpg.com/CotI/Dis...ora#post514734), between the hub of activity in the spinward marches sector and the ancient sector of deneb.

I was going to suggest that as the demise of a noble without a declared heir could cause disruption throughout a region, this sort of thing would be tracked by an Archduke's administration and preventative measures put in place.

That those measures, ie: nominating a suitable heir, would be undertaken doesn't mean that they would go unopposed. Particularly if connections and influence was used to have a particularly pliable heir named, but a far more suitable heir, with an approximately equal claim, then challenged the ruling at the time of the old baron's death.

Are baronies inheritable? Does the 3I regulate the rules of inheritance of titles or is inheritance left to the title holder?

If there's no suitable heir according to whatever laws happen to apply, can a Duke just appoint a Baron to a particular title? I thought that power was reserved solely to the Emperor?
