Current Ansteorran Law requires a minimum of 5 subscribing (i.e.
sustaining) members with at least three officers: seneschal,
treasurer and (pick one) marshal, herald or A&S to form either a
shire or a canton. A barony requires a minimum of 25 members with a
full slate of officers: seneschal, herald, knight marshal, minister
of arts and sciences, treasurer, chronicler, and hospitaler.
I wonder if a more reasonable solution would be to fold the Western
Region into two or three of the other Regions, but leave the groups
intact? That way there wouldn't be quite such a demand for officers.
