Takeda Shingen's Generals and Samurai Leaders
Welcome to the Daimyos of the Takeda Clan. This group's objective is to bring together people who excel in Total War: Shogun 2. The members will come together from time to time to battle other clans to prove Takeda surpremacy and fight each other in duels; however, on your own time you can help each other train, learn how to play the game and get better at it.
The leader of the clan is know as the Daimyo. The Daimyo has complete control over the entire clan, but due to the fact that we don't want to make this a dictatorship, the Daimyo is elected once every month by the Samurai Leaders.
The Samurai Leaders are the officers who lead the New Recruits (aka Ashigaru) in a battalion. They can announce matches but only with the approval of the Daimyo. New Recruits are allowed to vote for the new Daimyo as stated previously, and they to are elected onece evey two weeks by the New Recruits. There are, however, two types of Samurai. The new Recruits that show great promise may be recognized by the Daimyo and promoted to Samurai in name, but they are not entrusted with a battalion to lead. That position is up to the New Recruits to decide.
New Recruits are the Ashigaru of the Clan. They are the rank new members start as when they join the clan. They are allowed to vote in the election of their Samurai Leader. However that canidate must be approved by the current Daimyo. They are allowed to schedule matches, but again only though the approval of the Daimyo.
Daimyos are elected on the first Saturday of the month by the Samurai Leaders. Daimyos are always chosen from the Samurai in the Clan. From 12:00 PM EST to 5:00 PM EST the Samurai may vote. Then a anonymous Samurai counts the votes and releases the name of our new leader at 6:00 PM EST.
Samurai Leader Elections
Samurai are elected by New Recruits. However only by the recruits in their home battalion. They are elected twice a month on the first and the last Friday of the month. All other rules pertaining to the Samurai elections are the same as in the Daimyo elections.
