[Non-guild, Gnome] The Tinker's Court

Post by Ixirar/Kavalis on Wed May 30, 2012 2:09 pm

The Tinker's Court
The United Technocratic Republics of Gnomeregan wrote:
"Every Gnomish enclave a republic, every republic part of the union" - High Tinker Felblaze

The Gnomish state is a federated republic consisting of a multitude of largely autonomous enclaves, referred to as technocratic republics, spread out all over the world(s). Gnomes value freedom above all else, the freedom to express their curiosity and themselves in whatever way they wish, and as such the state apparatus consists of only the bare minimum.

The Tinker's court exists to advice and assist the elected leader, the High Tinker, with the bureaucratic endeavors of the state, to protect, help and endorse the Gnomish people and values.

One of the few states in the world that do not hold claim over any territory, except for Gnomeregan itself, instead allowing it's people to live in foreign nations among their people. The Gnomish state promises, that wherever a Gnome may live or whomever he allies with, they will be there to assist should it be needed.

Function
The Tinker's Court works to ensure that Gnomish interests are not overlooked in the grand picture of the Alliance, providing a forum in which the issues of Gnomes are brought into focus. Consisting of 5 Gearholders elected under two Supreme Gearholders, each with their specific responsability, the Tinker's Court is well equipped to handle any challenges it may face in the political arena of the Alliance, and the world.

Seats
The Tinker's Court consists of seven seats. Two Supreme Gearholders, charged with keeping the Court itself running, electing Gearholders, setting the protocol of Court meetings and all related tasks. Under the Supreme Gearholders are five Gearholders, each tasked with individual fields of responsability. These Gearholders work together to ensure that all parts of the Technocratic Republic of Gnomeregan remain stable and no individual interest of any gnome left unheard. Though their seats are specific in purpose, they all have some fields of responsability that overlaps, creating a need for a unified Court able to stand together in order to achieve maximum efficiency.

Supreme Gearholder of the Court
Debri Scramplepank
- Responsible for arranging Court meetings and coordinating the seats of the Court, making sure that no Gnomish resources are wasted
- Responsible for electing new Gearholders in the event of vacant seats in the Court
- Responsible for directing the flow of Court meetings so as to ensure that the meetings are not wasted on idle chatter
- Works as the Supreme Representants of the Gnomish People, they represent the voice of Gelbin Mekkathorque himself.

Gearholder of Intervention Swatti Oilgear Tinkerbolt
- Effective chief-in-command of the Armed Forces of Gnomeregan
- Responsible for coordinating Gnomish war efforts with the rest of the Alliance in the events of a joined military campaign
- Responsible for keeping the Gnomish army in shape and well equipped

Gearholder of Commerce and Relations
Sullee Swiftspeech
- Responsible for maintaining relations with the rest of the Grand Alliance
- Acts as speakers on behalf of the Tinker's Court when representing in foreign lands
- Responsible for dispatching ambassadors to foreign Council, Senate or similar in the kingdoms of Stormwind, Khaz Modan, Kalimdor, Lordaeron, Arathor and Gilneas
- Acts to ensure that the commercial efforts of Gnomeregan flourish, works with the Gearholder of Intervention to keep Gnomish trade routes and settlements safe and open

Gearholder of Arcane Research and Education Marion "Tamp" Manahealth
- Ensures that no arcane user under the Gnomish banner use their powers for any purpose deemed immoral by the Tinker's Court
- Responsible for educating Arcane users of Gnomeregan so as to promote a rich enviroment for magic to evolve and flourish
- Works with the Gearholder of Intervention to coordinate the efforts of Gnomish Wizards, mages and sorcerers in military campaigns so as to provide support for the Gnomish army

Gearholder of Inventions and Exploration Rufs Mechoblast
- Responsible for Gnomish Technologic advances
- Works with the Gearholder of Intervention to ensure that any Military technologic advances correspond with the needs of the Gnomish army
- Works with the Gearholder of Commerce and Relations to advance the fields of Commercial technologic advances, including Civil engineering and Architechture
- Responsible for arranging expeditions into uncharted lands in search of treasures beneficial to the Gnomish people

Gearholder of Lore and Celebrations Hermione "Small" Photowedge
- Responsible for preserving the Gnomish culture so that the way of the Gnomes is recognised amongst their allies.
- Works with the Gearholder of Commerce and Relations to arrange cultural events and host seasonal parties in times of celebration and to maintain a gnomish presence in foreign celebrations and festivals
- Works with the Gearholder of Inventions and Exploration to coordinate possible expeditions and uncover artifacts of Gnomish origin so as to create a deeper understanding of Gnomish history

Each Gearholder is responsible for arranging events related to their seats to promote Gnomish RP and maintain a visible presence of Gnomes in the Alliance RP of Defias Brotherhood, providing an attractive RP scene for any and all who may wish to RP a law-abiding gnome of the Alliance. The Gearholders are ofcourse expected to commit to some degree of time investment in strengthening the Gnomish RP Scene and must keep up to date with the server so they are able to provide a constructive addition to the Server as a whole.


Electing the Court
Election as a Gearholder follows a very specific protocol to ensure stability within the Court and continuity with who represents it. In order for a Gearholder to be challenged for his seat, both of the Supreme Gearholders must unianimously agree that a replacement is in order, be it on their own accord or by wish of the other Gearholders. When challenging the seat of a Gearholder, each Supreme Gearholder will present one candidate that they see fit to replace the current Gearholder, after which the four remaining Gearholders will vote for who they believe is the most fitting to occupy the seat. In case of a tie with no votes to the challenged Gearholder, he will have the option of being the tie-breaker, effectively letting him choose who his successor shall be. However, unless a clear result in favour of replacing the Gearholder is reached, he is safe and can not be replaced(ie. If 2 Gearholders vote for one of the candidates and 2 vote for the challenged Gearholder, the challenged Gearholder still gets the tiebreaker and is free to vote for himself).

In the events that a Supreme Gearholder needs to be elected/replaced, any current Gearholders may stand up and proclaim interest in holding the seat. In this case, the remaining four Gearholders will vote for the gnome they see most fit to be a Supreme Gearholder. In case of a tie, the other Supreme Gearholder (who wasn't challenged) will function as the tiebreaker, deciding who will occupy the seat of Supreme Gearholder.

In the event that a Gearholder proves vacant for a prolonged period of time, any able bodied gnome may step forward and proclaim interest in the seat. The remaining Gearholders will then decide who recieves the seat. Supreme Gearholders may trump the vote if a tie emerges.

Contact
The Tinker's Court can be contacted on their bi-monthly meetings (held on the first and third friday of every month, starting on a date yet to be revealed) if the issue warrants the attention of the entire Court. Otherwise, they may be contacted in person or by letter. When presented with an issue related to the Court, the Gearholder will decide if the issue warrants the attention of the Court or if they can satisfactorily solve the issue on their own. Any decisions taken without the council of the Court must be reported to the remaining Gearholders on the next possible meeting so as to ensure that all Gearholders are up to date with the affairs of the Tinker's Court.

Do note, this is a heads up of what's to come: The Tinker Court isn't actively holding meetings yet, and I would like to have the remaining 3 seats (1 Supreme Gearholder, 1 Gearholder of Commerce & Relations + 1 Gearholder of Invention & Exploration) filled before we open this thing, so as to have a strong start as possible.

Contact me on Kavalis, Ixirar, Debri or Radvor if you are interested in holding a seat. We're planning to have the first meeting sometime in mid-to-late June.

While i'm considered a heretic for playing a Gnomish Stormwind Councillor, I still Role play a gnome and am ecstatic this institution is coming back. The Kingdom of Arathor will gladly send a representative to your meetings and I personally will attempt to attend all I can on Vezullia.

We have now only one open seat left, that of the second Supreme Gearholder, and I already have an interested applicant! Now is the final call for interested gnomes to apply for Gearholdership, for the Court will be full in just a few days, allowing for the official ceremony and opening of the Tinker's Court!

Things are going to be great!

I have now recieved three applications for the final seat of Supreme Gearholder and as such the Tinker Court will elect the final gearholder next sunday, 17th of June.

Any further interested would-be Gearholders are still free to contact me for an invite to the Calendar event. You will be required to show up on the 17th where the Gearholders (Swatti, Photowedge, Tamp, Rufs, Sullee and myself) will decide who is to hold the final seat of the Court.

I won't be on 'til the 22nd, but I'm sure to make the next meeting.

Terribly sorry I missed the meeting. I was not present at a place with WoW access. Should have sent a message or something.
