It is confirmed that tittles Qarlon hold like "King of all Andals" were a strategy by the local priesthood in order to win influence with each victory Qarlon achieved defeating their old religious rivals who according to sources of the era,were "barbarians waited to be eliminated by the light of the seven",such is that with Qarlon's conquest of Loraysson a Great Sept was said to have been build one intended to be a reference to all Andals of the World, destroying the ancient holy mazes of the isle and doing a great purge of believers around the time.
The Maze Spirit followers in retaliation are said to have gotten closer than ever with the priests of Boast,combining several aspects of the Blind God's creed to the Maze's,this actually explains today how Boash became a member of the Spirit pantheon. Other recorded sources speak about holy Warriors that raided the seat of worship and settlements of the Seven, giving sacrifice to this ancient deities on the laberynths.
The followers of Boash held the belief that all life was sacred and eternal. They further believed that all on earth were equal creatures of god; men and women, lords and peasants, rich and poor, slave and master, and even man and beast.
Part of their doctrine was the extreme abnegation of the self, for only by freeing themselves of vanity could men hope to become one with the godhood. Thus, the Boash'i put aside their own names and spoke of themselves as "a man" or "a woman", rather than say "I" or "me". This habit of speech endures in Lorath to this day, where the nobility regards it as terribly vulgar to speak of one's self directly.
Ideology that combined with the equality of The Old Kingdom of Sarnor has contributed to the creation of modern Mazemaker culture,Corruption and dishonour are seen as one of the worst affronts a man can commit,as life is sacred as is the will of men betraying the rules that make you who you are lead to hard consequences one cannot wholly forgive or forget.
The "tittle" of Elder is a relic of long time past,always important on the culture of the Mazemakers since the times of King Birold "The Maker" himself its role has drastically changed since the Scouring of Lorath and Erreg's departure.
Once an appointed Elder could be selected according to the deeds the gentleman (or sometimes ladies) did for the community or on a noble's case on his own ascendancy,the major honor for an Elder was to take part in the Sacred Council of Elders responsible of electing the ruler of the Ancient Kingdom of Lorath.
Only a member the Noble Houses of the Kingdom could be appointed King of Lorath and Legacy of the Mazemakers, tittles beared mostly by House Blurson specially after the Scouring.
On the other hand on the Blue Kingdom in the North of Westeros used this tittle on a different way,being appointed Elder nowadays is similar to the roles of Knighthood,charged with the preservation of the Maze Spirits and the people of the Stony Shore and Sea Dragon Point, sometimes Elders are delegated land by Noble Houses, creating scions known as "Elderly houses",this promoved by the Blue Kings for a more efficient administration of the land in the old Kingdom up to the 298 AC.
This reform applies to the hereditary tittle of Erreg's blood "Eternal Elder",man who did see the faults of the old Sistem,as the Order of Masters and Scholars usually say it was the old Elective Sistem that contribute to the old Kingdom's stagnant nature and lack of stability as when all nobles had the possibility of being elected corruption, intrigue and disrespect ruled on the council sometimes not taking their job seriously or putting puppet rulers that satisfied their aim as being Kingmakers dated their heads with arrogance and grandeur, saving a legacy nearly rotten by Qarlon's Claim or the tyranny of the old council.
As the Andals and the Mazemakers must have hated each other but for all their contact they acquired crucial point to both their cultures.
A continued line of rulers also helped in a competitive and an active history on the lands of the North, remember the past create but also learn how to destroy.
Council of Elders: Created by the Elder High King Birold "The Maker" was formed by 14 relevant 7 men/ 7 women(after contact with Boash Priests and Sarnori Society) that had distinguished themselves in several aspects of society,military,religion,rulership, healing or even is said in the case of honorary members as the Jhogwin were said to be the only ones. All of the components had to go through "The Rite of Eldership" starting at the age of 25 that meant doing several Trials of Bravery,Wisdom,Cunning, Leadership and Morality, granting status or even parcels of Land or rank on the several territories of the Kingdom.
Tasked to supervise and give counsel to the High King of Lorath,their word is highly respected and they should be immune to any violence,as attaching the council's base was said to be a great tabu on Lorathi Society similar to the High Kings or Religious Leaders,as one of the pillars of the Kingdom they must be view as essential. Weekly reunions were carried out between the Council and the respective High King and advisors.
Nowadays he Council of Elders is dead on the Blurson territories of The North but the Eldership rites are recreated each times a new minor noble is named by the Lords of the Land,now a ceremonial occurrence many Stony Shore citizens still hold them high in esteemed. If an ancestor is named Elder the descendents may hold into it unless a great dishonour is committed, The tittle of Great Elder is often associated with the rank of Landed Knight in the south or Master in the North. One of the tittles hold by the Blurson Ruler is "Eternal Elder" a reference to the importance the Blurson Dinasty has had on the birth of this aspect of Mazemaker culture.
Right on! Well, this AWOIAFRP is a story-based roleplaying forum on reddit. This wiki was for the lore and characters that all of the moderators/players/writers created. As you have seen, this was based on an alternate history scenario formed around Baelor the Blessed. This scenario went on for several months, until eventually the group started over with a new scenario, where Edric Storm was legitimized. I wasn't around for that one, but I don't think it lasted very long.
A third scenario began over a year ago, and is still going. If I recall correctly, it was a Young Griff & Dany scenario, where they retake Westeros together. I was the original Stark player in that one, but I chose to kill him off during a planned timejump. But he was one of my favorite characters to have written.
Anyways, there is a whole group of writers from around the world that storytell together over at the AWOIAF RP reddit page. It is an insanely fun way to do fan fiction within Westeros with people who love the world GRRM created. You should definitely check them out. They have a discord channel linked on their main page, and will enthusiastically answer any of your questions should you choose to pay them a visit. If you do, tell them Raymont sent you.
If you don't, have fun poking around the old wiki pages. There are some very cool stories hidden around here.
Curiously enough to I had already checked some pages mentioned (excluding the Edric is legitimate one) and really striked me as good attempts of creating a non-typical asoiaf storyline,of course with all their "Mary Sue" problems and lazy narrative at times but good stuff takes time and everybody falls in that at some point.
Still think of this timeline as spicier not being a mere continuation of Canon,its early start was what attracted me to insert my content here.
But regardless,I'll pay them a visit at some point and check for myself what was the ending you guys gave to the Plot.
Hopefully the Targs do not remain in the throne on this one...
