    I look forward to the follow up articles GVD.

    However I think you fail to give enough weight to the loss of hereditary rights for the nobles within the feudal system, which is the basis of legitimacy especially within a traditional Oeridian context like Furyondy.

    You mention the clerics support Artur but given the traditional ethos of Heironeous and the historical heritage of knights within society, would Artur even be considered legitimate within or outside the nation regardless of his popular "common support" which doesn't count for much, the clergy and the knights would still see this assault on "noble hereditary" as an assault on their power base.

    Would the Heironeous clergy and some knights (atleast a percentage) see Artur and his knights as illegitimate, weakening Furyondy in a time of war for personal power, hardly a honourable motive?

    Which opens the doors for secret societies, conservative groups such as Thanes Glory or simple brigand bands as self-styled patroits defending traditional Furyondian values.

    I think the reprecussions should be very drastic, obviously the nations outside of Furyondy aren't happy with this example of rebellion and the death of a lawful monarch.

    Think of the English War of the Roses, unrest lasted generations ending only when the new "upstart" royal line married into the old line to gain respectability.
