The Nelson Assembly made a motion to mix things up a bit during Saturday afternoon debates. They momentarily adopted a medieval style of parliamentary pro. All of the Delegates were addressed as Lord or Lady, Duke or Duchess, and the Speaker, Carter King, was ironically addressed as His Majesty, Your Highness, His Stewardship, and King King. Delegates were no longer from Delegations, but rather from Provinces or Lands. This occurred during the debate of Lord Michael Usher’s bill, which was passed through the chamber. “It’s something we like do. Every year we have to do [something fun] for at least a few bills. It’s a fun way to release some tension in the crowd,” said Lord Usher from the Land of Eau Claire.
