So far I really like it. I just finished page 53. The only minor thing I saw was that Roger was Not an elder. This is often times miss reported because he was such a vital member. However the reason why he was not an elder adds to his character. I asked him to be an elder 3 times over his life and all three times he decline stating "he didn't feel he deserved it yet." The last time I asked him was just about a month before he passed. He didn't want to accept that responsibility until he knew everything there was about Gaiscioch and how things work and did not feel that he was ready yet.
If you look through all of our screenshots from his warhammer days, Oldroar was always at the back of the crowd. He always put others first and never did anything to push anyone else down to elevate himself. He was very much a "After you" type of guy.
That said Balry I think it works fine for your purposes as he was about as close to an elder without being an elder as you could get. If it was up to our eldership team he would have been an elder long ago but he chose to say no until he was ready.
