Scales of War
Council of Elders
The Council of Elders, a group of five male and female dwarves, governs Overlook. Each is elected to office and serves a 10-year term. The dwarves see ruling as a burden and none relish the job, preferring to hand power off to someone else.
All five wear the robes of their office—luxuriant purple and silver damask.
- Great Elder Morgoff Stonefist
- Elder Galden Sledgemore
- Elder Yalissa Mountainhome
- Elder Syn Ironheart
- Elder Cadrick Gemviper
In addition to the Elders, One representative from each of the eight districts of Overlook attends the Council, serving as advisors and also to air the grievances of their particular constituencies. Although these individuals have the power to influence, they have no real authority in the city, though many are wealthy and powerful by means other than the office they hold.
