    Re: #JUSTICETOMADORC

    Mad Orc is probably the best argument against your idea. The original application thread sufficiently highlights that, I think.

    Of course the questions must be purely optional. They're not meant as a kind of entrance examination for the office.

    The original idea of the sections was that section I states the general structures and offices and section II explains all the voting procedures, hence the separation.

    On another note, Kalchas, the seer, or Nestor, the oldest of the Achaean generals, may be viable choices for Tribunes/Magistrates.
