Village Unions on VC
« on: 20 March 2015, 12:25:43 AM »
We have a few of these on VC, and more keep popping up, so we're making some basic guidelines to make it easier when it comes to staff protecting regions and dealing with questions/disagreements:


Village Unions on VC
- Unions are where a power structure is created to govern multiple villages (regions). Federations and confederations are examples of this.

- Unions can have a large "Union Land" region that encompasses the constituent sub-village regions and the land in between them (federal land), within reason.


- Not a union: Expanding a village by adding another region to it (as parent/child regions) is not considered creating a union.

1. Constitution:
   a. Must have a constitution.
   b. Must be clear and accessible to anyone.
   c. At a minimum must include:
       i. - Name of the union,
       ii. - The power structure of the union (who is in charge? is it a democracy? etc),
       iii. - How union land is handled (who makes decisions about federal land that is in the union's protected region, but isn't in any one sub-village's region?),
       iv. - How to join and leave the union,
       v. - How to change the constitution.


2. Joining a union requires:
   a. All owners of the village that is joining to give consent to join under the constitution.
   b. The union to provide consent for the village to join (however the constitution makes this happen).

3. Paying for protection and perks:
   a. The union region and each sub-village region must pay for protection and perks individually (mob repellant, for example, is not shared).

When making the union land around, within reason can they do in other shapes that four-sided, like a rectangle with a square on the side or something like that?

I don't see why not. No region has to be a rectangular prism, it can be a polygon, and this goes for the union land region too.

Out near Quartzia the regions all look like this, in all sorts of wacky shapes. If you want your village and/or union to have a specific shape, we'll make it for you. My village looks like this for example, so the borders follow the river enclosing it. Takes a bit longer than a rectangular village, but is easy enough to do :)
