Flo and Gregor at the ship
Tell me about your world. How does your government work?
a monarchy. Other clans had different systems.
It wasn't a succession by blood line. Promising new sqids would be made part of the royal family. When the king needed to be replaced, one of the royal family would be elected to be the new king.
It sounds very orderly when I say it. In reality it's more like thirty seagulls all trying to eat the same potato chip.
