    Default What form of government did the Pritanoi have?

    I'm considering starting a campaign as the Pritanoi, and for immersion/role-playing purposes, I would like to know their form of government, or at least that for the one tribe you start out with. Did they have an hereditary ruler, or did they have some sort of elective monarchy? Or something different altogether?
    "A skeptic is one who prefers beliefs and conclusions that are reliable and valid to ones that are comforting or convenient, and therefore rigorously and openly applies the methods of science and reason to all empirical claims, especially their own. A skeptic provisionally proportions acceptance of any claim to valid logic and a fair and thorough assessment of available evidence, and studies the pitfalls of human reason and the mechanisms of deception so as to avoid being deceived by others or themselves. Skepticism values method over any particular conclusion." - Dr Steven Novella

    They had... a... form of sword-aversive democracy.

    Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
