I was wandering around Wikipedia and somehow found myself looking at an article about Micro-Nations.
It got me thinking - a sorcerer's tower would effectively be a Micro-Nation, and if he gave himself a title, so much the better.
Maybe the village has an experienced warrior settle in it, and he declares himself king of all 40 inhabitats.
Damn, I really like the idea of self declared micro-nations in a campaign ;)
