County of Greyhawk

Administrative Breakdown

  • The Baronies are each ruled by a Baron who is a sworn vassal of the Count of Greyhawk.
  • The Provinces operate under administrative control of a Baronet, who is a sworn vassal of both the appropriate Baron and the Count.
    • The Provinces are named for four past Lord Mayors of the Independent City of Greyhawk.
    • The Provincial capital is a Keep, a walled complex that serves as a combination administrative seat, barracks and staging location for internal troops, and military headquarters.
      • The daily running of the Keep is given to a Sheriff, assisted by a Master-at-Arms, both of whom are members of the Order of the Lion.
    • Mavenshire is the private holding of the Count; however, the Count rarely bothers himself with direct administration of Mavenshire. Instead, he leaves the day-to-day decision-making in the hands of an appointed administrator.
      • The Provinces and Mavenshire are divided into boroughs. For simplicity, each borough is named for its chief population center. (Note: Exceptions are Greyhawk City and Hardby, which are not part of any borough.)
      • Each borough head is a Reeve who is selected by the Baronet or, in the case of Mavenshire, by the Count or his designated Administrator.
