M'Chekian Nobility

PostAuthor: g1asgow » Sun Feb 12, 2012 3:35 pm

Go M'Chek!

From this map do we take it each area represents a Lord or Lady who will have a seat in the Nobles House?

Is there a map showing/or a description of the distribution of the lands to the nobility outside Mikona but on the Mikona server?

Donnie Grumbald is described on the wiki as having 'a large estate in Mikona'. Are we to take it that some Lords may be 'city Lords' without lands in the rural areas?

Are there areas in M'Chek not under the jurisdiction, however loose, of the local Lord, something along the lines of the Hills of Tumult (lost to chaos?) or Port Rasmus (Property of the M'Chekian Navy?). Are the Residences within Mikona part of a nobles estate or are they part of a city authority?

What official claim at present, if any, does M'Chek make on the areas on the Underdark server? Would the local Lord next to one of the Underdark entrances send patrols into it (except perhaps in emergencies?) or does the M'Chekian army make standard sweeps?

Within each estate does a hierarchy flow from a Lord to a Baron to a Knight? Would these lower levels of nobility have a seat in the Nobles house?

Thank you.

EDIT: This may be the wrong forum. Perhaps general discussions?

Some roughly represent territory owned by certain nobles, such as the lands surrounding the in game keeps, or the western lords who were part of the Nelthrope War mini plot. Some of the greater noble families may have territory greater than a single one of the drawn areas, and also keep in mind that there is territory between transitions that you don't see in game. That map is made up of the playable areas of M'Chek.

There is not.

Donnie Grumbald is described on the wiki as having 'a large estate in Mikona'. Are we to take it that some Lords may be 'city Lords' without lands in the rural areas?


The large estate in Mikona is his home, just as several of the other noble families have large homes in the Nobles District. The Grumbald family has its own lands in M'Chek.

Are there areas in M'Chek not under the jurisdiction, however loose, of the local Lord, something along the lines of the Hills of Tumult (lost to chaos?) or Port Rasmus (Property of the M'Chekian Navy?). Are the Residences within Mikona part of a nobles estate or are they part of a city authority?


Most of it would belong to a noble, however as you say many locations may be loose, ie the particular lord of the lands where the minotaur caves are located likely does not send all his troops to take out Steelhorn. One example of an area that wouldn't be under the jurisdiction of a noble is the lands in north east M'Chek granted to Tollgaroth. Which noble lost land in that deal I don't believe was ever established.

What official claim at present, if any, does M'Chek make on the areas on the Underdark server? Would the local Lord next to one of the Underdark entrances send patrols into it (except perhaps in emergencies?) or does the M'Chekian army make standard sweeps?


M'Chek claims all the underdark under M'Chek though in practice they only get what they can keep. The army currently handles patrols in the upper levels. There are some colonies/settlements in the upper parts of the UD, like the Mikona UD farms. There may be a noble or two trying to stake claims for some profit, but that would be a matter in the Noble House.


Within each estate does a hierarchy flow from a Lord to a Baron to a Knight? Would these lower levels of nobility have a seat in the Nobles house?


The hierarchy would flow within the noble family itself. Knights do exist. Only one member from a Noble family itself has a seat in the Noble house.
