SaxBasilisk Posted October 12, 2019 Report Share Posted October 12, 2019 While prepping my game, I took a look at the versions of the Supreme Collegium in GPC (pp. 36-37) and Uther (p. 123). Between the two, the makeup of the Collegium has changed drastically. Although the number of members are roughly the same, the GPC version is made up mostly of nobles, while over half of the members in Uther are clergy (or at least representing ecclesiastical holdings). I haven't found a note saying why this was changed in the books or online, and it doesn't make much sense. Uther (p. 121) mentions that Rome farmed out administrative tasks to ecclesiastical officials, but that doesn't explain how the British Christian representatives got on the Collegium. This has some minor effects - such as changing Ulfius' role, and making the embassy to Lindsey in 487 of lesser importance - but it also would change Uther's game plan significantly in terms of getting support to become High King (e.g. how he handles confessions). I feel overall it pushes his actions over the line from insensitive to dumb. With that in mind, I think I'll use the GPC version in my game. What do you do?
