Well from everything that I have read on the list (and this is my own thought) That peers and nobles are looked up to by the rest of the kingdom no matter what. The populas does strive to be like them. and it takes hard work to reach those goals. What I think Gilli is getting at is that the show of the peers and nobles in a group at the local level does have an influance on others as well as the new people that show up to different activites and that helps with recruting. It also makes them more accesable for knowlege and lessons. When the group like from shire down gets the honor of having a peer or noble in there group they are looked up to and believe me it is a big influance on the group and populas like I have heard if he can do it than why can't I. But if they do things else where and just pop up at an event or two and do nothing is really frustrating to the people in that group. And it is the same the other way if the peer or noble isn't doing anything than why should I attitude kicks in. And all you Peers and nobles this is specificly for you. You all are followed around by the populas like little lost puppies looking for recognition or just to be noticed. Watch some time and tell me this is not so. The populas look to you for guidance and when this doesn't happen people get frustrated and the wrong things can be said about someone that could be slanderous and hurtful because of the build up of frustration. I see this all the time. Yes it is grand to be working your butts off for the kingdom at that level and around their majesties but let's don't forget that the work at the local level is also work for the kingdom. There may not be any crown or nobles present but it still counts in the end.
