To sum everything up :
My society is Medieval-like and led by a counsel of 4 people named the Elite 4. Each member of the Elite 4 represents one of the 4 classes (Inquisitors, Scholars, Workers, Soldiers) and gets his/her sit based on a score point.
Citizens vote during elections are part of this score point and the other part is based on points awarded for good deeds or subtracted for unlawful actions. (example : winning a duel, arresting a proven heretic, discovering a new breed, murder)
Any member of the Elite 4 can be subject to a popular vote to kick him/her out of the counsel if enough people of his/her class decide he/she is no longer fit to represent them.
The 5th class called Judges do not take part in the Elite 4. However they posses a book storing the point value for most common actions and their job is to keep track of the point accumulation of each citizen as well as deciding how they should fluctuate the point values in specific situations.
The Judges are never to leave their keep so that they may not be swayed by other classes. They receive reports filled by citizens of the deeds they have accomplished and by the Inquisitor of the criminals they have arrested and change the score points accordingly.
The difference with my precedent iteration of the Judges' concept is that they no longer have the sightstone to see for themselves. I want to introduce a "mafia" in the faction that would trade others' deeds for money.
Score points only matters for your political status and do not change your social standings. No money or services are provided for higher score point. One only gets greater political influence out of it. Therefore, people not interested in politics will seek to exchange those for money hence the mafia.
The mafia uses the political power obtained to influence decisions in favor of their legal businesses.
In order to do so, I need to grant the Judges a power that would make it so only the person who actually accomplished the deed may fill the report BUT it could be traded anyway you see fit. Therefore, the mafia cannot simply use falsification and has to trade ACTUAL deeds.
How do I make it so Judges will know if a report is faux or not for sure but will award points to whoever name is written?
- Medieval-like : By "Medieval" I meant a society where religion still has a strong political power. Farmers work the field for a lord (Veteran soldier or Inquisitor. Scholars are fed by the tax on the lords' harvests to the Curatorium) or in the machine rooms/labs for the scholars.
Deed trading has to be illegal.
You may give the Judges a stone power but its effect has to be explained by nanotechnology.
You may replace the report system.
