Society of Legends
Legends are a social people. Living in solitude for too long in unhealthy for them. When they come together, they are often in conflict with one another. Generally this is desired since every Legend knows that there are no good stories without conflict. Sometimes, however, that conflict escalates and Legends actually become destructive to one another. When this happens, it is bad for everyone and the Regent is supposed to intercede. It is good to have a rival or a nemisis. It is bad, however, to destroy them once and for all… How can there be more stories when there is no one left to play your antagonist?
Legends tend to gather together in small domains. These domains are ruled by Low Regents who are elected once every leap year. The Low Regents often adopt a title of their liking, but they all have roughly the same powers and responsibilities. The Low Regent always appoints a Sherriff. The role of the Sherriff is to enforce the Low Regents rulings. All domains are under the sway of the Shattered King and each must pay him tribute. Failure to do so results in punishment of one kind or another. Aside from the Low Regent, High Regent, and Sherriff, no other formal titles are recognized. All other Legends are considered equals regardless of their prior status during the Endless Summer… a point of some contention.
