Advisors to replace

Post  Taylor on Mon Mar 05, 2012 11:35 pm

What kind of advisors should stay? Which ones should go? What should we replace them with? Here's a list; I've bolded the ones I think need to be replaced, usually because they have ranks or occupations that didn't exist back in 650BC. I'd prefer it if we could simply rename these instead of having to come up with a whole new set of advisors. I've put some suggestions for what to replace them with... any suggestions are welcome!

Alderman => replace by Satrap
Ambassador
Army Organizer
Army Reformer
Artist
Banker
Collector
Colonel => replace by Syntagmatarchis
Colonial Governor => this one doesn't sit well with me, but I have no idea what to replace him with
Commandant => replace by Hoplomachos
Diplomat
Fortification Expert
Grand Admiral => maybe replace by "Trierarch"?
Grand Captain => replace by "Megos Lokhagos" (is that correct Greek? Razz)
High Judge
Inquisitor => replace by something spy-y
Lord Proprietor => replace by Cleruch
Master of Mint
Natural Scientist =>replace by Natural Philosopher
Naval Organizer
Naval Reformer
Navigator
Philosopher
Pioneer
Privateer => maybe replace? Maybe it's fine.
Quartermaster => dunno
Rear Admiral
Recruit Master
Sergeant Major General => this one makes little sense to me. Maybe "Taxiarchos", haven't used that one yet.
Sheriff => replace by Prefect?
Spymaster
Statesman
Theologian
Trader
Treasurer
Grand Marshal => replace by "Polemarchos"

Thoughts?

Whats wrong with colonial Governor? Personally I'd actually keep him. There were plenty of colonies in antiquity too made by Persians, Greeks, Phoenicians, and later Romans.

Alderman is a council member. Why not just name him a Satrap? or Archontes if you prefer Greek over Persian I'd like to have some persian stuff in here since this period DOES happen to be the growth and height of the Persian Empire. (also Satrap was used by Alexander as a title in his conquests)

klêrouchoi or cleruchs were greek colonists that owned land in colonies and held special status maybe that for lord proprietor?

"Colonial governor" sounds a bit too "modern"... I'm fine with his function, just want to rename him if possible.

Satrap sounds like fun. Yeah, I need to mix a bit of Persian in there of course. (Btw there's one Chinese one: Prefect)

Good one on the lord proprietor suggestions, thanks!

Maybe change it to Provincial Governor instead of Colonial Governor?
