Quote from: Allronix on July 24, 2010, 03:55:05 PMAs for the KQ world? I would not be surprised if they had the feeling of "something missing." I could see Rosella, hope magnet she is, believing Alexander was alive and would come back even if/when Graham and Valanice could no longer do so. It could also explain why she believed this slave boy in tattered clothing so easily. Likewise, it could also be why "Gwydion" could feel in his heart the Oracle's story was true, even if that mean his whole life was false.
Quote've even read of twin's psychically (kinda) knowing whether or not the other was alive
QuoteOne nice thing about the world of Daventry versus the real world in that time period is that status doesn't seem to be as much of an issue.

I can't think of any credible scientists that acknowledge "psychics"... :p Psychic twins in a fantasy world, anything can happen. But in real life, erm... I'm a bit skeptical, and I'd personally avoid using examples of "pseudoscience" to try to explain how it might work in a fantasy setting... :p Better to just say, it would be interesting from a "fantasy perspective"... No offense to anyone out there that believes in psychics... Its just difficult for my scientific background.In anycase, actually where I've heard these stories, it was always with "identical twins". I don't think I've read one example in fraternal twins (as in non-identical).Although "identical" twins are not necessarily complete "identical".http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/11/health/11real.htmlhttp://www.pnas.org/content/102/30/10604.full

Quote from: Baggins on July 24, 2010, 06:31:29 PMWell it depends on royalty system. For example the Queen is the Queen of England right now because she has the royal blood connection, whereas her husband does not. So he's lower class than her. If she dies, not sure does it pass onto the prince of Wales? Who is the prince of wales right now? I remember hearing that it will probably skip Prince Charles to one of his sons, Harry I think.
QuoteShould Elizabeth II die, the crown will go directly to her son, Charles, Prince of Wales. Skipping generations would be illegal.
QuoteUnless, of course, there's a reason someone can't accept the crown (usually religion, though I think there are a few other excluding factors).

Skipping generations would be illegal.I'm pretty sure this is true. The only other possibility that I can think of is that Elizabeth II's husband (Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh) would retain his current position. But that doesn't really make sense, because he is not actually King, he just happens to be married to the Queen.
QuoteApart from that, I can't think of any other reasons why someone who is in line to the throne would be barred from inheriting - unless, of course, they are born out of wedlock.
QuoteI believe it's said somewhere that he was but a peasant but eventually became a page, then a squire, then a knight, then a king
