    There might be some there.
    Just FYI, Aleron is doing an AMA on his discord server tomorrow, I think.

    And she was a socialist my friend.

    Although being a member of the early American socialist party she would have voted along the lines as a Democrat if she didnt have a socialist candidate. Many Democrats held her ideals high then and some of them do even today.

    I hope you read the other article that listed many examples of the previous topics. You had no comment in regards to it.

    I love the “For the Record part”!

    Absolutely everyone has prejudice. Even Characters if they could be questioned would all show prejudice.

    I totally believe that Yves had previously been a racially tolerant country. That’s what we have been shown in the story. Especially if you consider Yves being a human ran country. Randy has already out lived two generations of humans. As we know at least his whole life it had been a “free society” until his nephews rise to power. That being said Not being told anything differently of the Randy’s Grandfather we should assume it had all been the status quo for sometime.

    You make mention of Randy’s non human side not being able to inherit the thrown. I don’t think that was the issue either. I don’t know of any King who would take in his bastard son to raise and allow him to take the thrown. My simple understanding is that the eldest son of the Kings Legitimate wife aka the Queen would take the thrown. We don’t really know anything of the situation as it hasn’t been told besides the fact that the King was out witted by the Dungeon itself. In our world that would be like a paranormal birth of a mystical beast giving birth to a human looking child. I would think if the King already had children or a wife in Normal circumstances that any other child born would be out. Forcing any and all other children to take oaths of loyalty and follow succession would be normal. Randy not being born by the Kings wife would be completely excluded. That doesn’t make any of them Racist towards Randy’s Undine half or any other non human. If anything such oaths might make them pragmatic. That would help prevent their own offspring from killing each other off to gain power.

    Well the conquest specialization was chosen a thousand years earlier. That's many generations unless you are off an extremely long-lived race. Its plenty of time for Yves to have spent centuries expanding, only to eventually have a change of heart and turn inwards, building up the interior.

    I don't think being half Undine would have been a good thing, but its possible it wouldn't have invalidated Randy's claim on the throne.

    Randy being a bastard would invalidate him in most monarchies, unless he was the last living eligible heir. Meaning the only living royal the nobles are willing to accept on the throne, on account of the others being too insane, too stupid or too unpredictable.

    Unless Yves is an absolute monarchy, the dukes and the other high nobility should be the ones deciding whether to confirm the old kings pick or someone else from the royal family. The king is but first amongst equals. Not sure Aleron did his homework on that front though.

    I would also require oaths designed to prevent family infighting of any sort. Its one of the great drawbacks of monarchies. Removing the ability to fight over the throne or a powerful dukedom would stabilize the kingdom immensely.
