The Brennish Government consists of the Achdarin, a council spearheaded by the elected Aithman. The Achdarin is chosen by the Aithman from the best of the nation to be the realms justice and governing body, and it persists in the event of an Aithman stepping down. Each member can appoint an assistant, who assists their function. This is however not required. Assistants can sit in on meetings but not vote. Formal druids, defined as those with a connection proper to druidry, as well as the senior most druid, or the Eiolache, form an entity known as the Druid’s Circle, which are summoned to council meetings and act as their own body, that confers and votes within itself before giving out their formal votes. The Aithman’s votes count as four times the normal councilmans, and is expected to overall manage and run the council and nation, but only with the approval of the council. Every owner of any meaningful form of property in Brenna can also vote in certain election and polls. These are considered part of the People’s Council, or voting class. The Aithman has the power to overturn the elected decision of the People’s Council and Achdarin, but will be massively unpopular if he chooses to do so on a frequent basis.

The Brennish vehemently value their individual sovereignty and the freedom granted by their society, and the slightest sign of a ruler exercising tyranny may cause uproar within the system. The Aithman also has the power to act without bringing the decision to vote, but will again, be massively unpopular should they do so often. Brenna is considered a Tribal Oligarchic Republic. Neither council nor the Aithman can be considered any form of “nobility”, and the concept as such does not exist in Brennish society. The last bastion of Brennish nobility was violently ousted through bloody civil war pre-calamity.

Role of the Aithman:

The Aithman, or “Wise Man” in Brennish, is a role that stems back from the ancient days of Brennish refugees on the different planes after the calamity. Once the calamity struck, the formal Brennish monarchy ended and the Brennish people were splintered across different planes. The role of the Aithman was initially a overseer of the gathered refugees. A freeman elevated to the much needed role of leader. The tradition has stuck over the centuries in the refugee planes, and soon the idea of a monarchy and nobility became distasteful and archaic to most Brennans. In the present day, the role of an Aithman has been expanded to the point where it very may well resemble that of a King, due to the increase of power given to the role, though none would label it such.

The Aithman has the ability to summon votes on issues, call meetings, veto decisions, and ignore votes all-together. The Aithman is responsible for day to day rulings, diplomacy with other entities, management of the council, and has the ability to remove and appoint councilors freely. Though the use of this power may have consequences within the hearts of the people.


Role of the Achdarin:

The positions are as follows:
  • The Armacht, or the Marshal. The Armacht oversees military operations, military recruiting, protection of the lands and other duties typical of a Marshal.
  • The Eiolache, or the Senior Druid. The Eiolache oversees spiritual, druidic, natural and otherwise magic affairs concerning Brenna, and is expected to hold religious ceremonies for the populace. He can be considered the head of religion. The Eiolache is the only position not appointed by the Aithman, and the removal of one from this spot is considered highly controversial and sacrilegious.
  • The Neachlaga, or the Lawmaker. The Neachlaga oversees the day to day executions of the law, and any updates to the law of the land.
  • The Ionmasair, or the Head Steward. The Ionmasair oversees matters of tax, trade, commerce, rent, merchanting and other coin related matters, as well as the hosting of festivals and public events. He is capable of appointing multiple stewards, rather than simply one assistant.

Aithman - Ayyth-man
Eiolache - E-yo-lay-ke
Armacht - Arr-ma-kht (Drawn out k, like in Arabic or Gaelic)
Neachlaga - Nee-khh-laga (Drawn out k, like in Arabic or Gaelic)
Ionmasair - Eyon-may-sayer
Achdarin - Ak-dar-inn

The Achdarin is expected to act mostly autonomously on their own respects, with oversight from the Aithman and suggestions from other councillors.

Role of the People’s Council:

The People’s Council is the assembly land-owners, non Achdarin-councillors with the right to vote on matters. They lack the ability to call meetings, and can only voice their opinion on matters where their presence is allowed by the Achdarin.

Role of the Druid’s Circle:

The Druid’s Circle has the same function as the People’s Council, except they are sometimes solely consulted about matters - without the rest of the Achdarin present.
