Open Council vs Closed Council

The Open Council is held in The Hall of Kings, in a large theatre towards the back of the building. The building is filled with rows of benches in a half-circle. Where the stage would typically be is a dais with a high table reserved for the King and Lord Chamberlain. More important nobles sit close to the front of the assembly area, whereas less important nobles sit near the back. Higher up, there is a public gallery for others in attendance. During each session, soldiers line the curved walls.

The Closed Council is made up only of the four High Lords of the Kingdom, the High Justice, Lord Chancellor, Lord Marshal and Lord Chamberlain. The Closed Council, as well as the Open Council, are used as checks to keep the vast powers of the King in check. If important emergency decisions must be made, however, the Closed Council has a very important role in the decision making.
