Can a noble be demoted to lower rank?

Postby Ashkelion-Yvarai » Mon Sep 29, 2008 3:48 pm

What happens if a higher ranked noble is losing is vassals? Namely, in my game (From Shanri with Love) Count Kether has lost two of his barons. One decided to switch allegiance and the other has died. Now, he has only two remaining barons. And he has currently no way of regaining the two lost baronies. What happens to his title? Does he remain a Count or will he be demoted to Baron?

He's no longer a Count.
