Peers of the Tower

The owner of each of Camiden’s Hundred Towers has a right to sit amongst the Peers of the Tower. This group may veto, in whole, any legislation passed by the Guilder Assembly. Generally speaking, the coalitions that make up the Guilder Assembly possesses the clout to avoid such a veto, but such things have been known to occur despite the precautions of the Assembly. The owner of each tower is subject to a Blood Oath swearing that he is the rightful owner of the tower. Owners may send anyone in their stead to vote, but that person must take the Blood Oath to vote for the Peers meet in Camilla’s grand tower where a fabled magical dweomer tallies and records each vote, of those eligible to vote. In the case of towers owned by groups or organizations, the leader of the group generally takes the Blood Oath. The lineage of each Blood Oath is meticulously tracked by scholars, so even in the case of confusion or fraud (somehow) it is simple to trace back the ‘lineage’ of each vote.
