Scales of War
Council of Elders
The Council of Elders serves as the government in Overlook. The Council is made up of five dwarves, three male and two female, and 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. Elder Cadrick is the youngest dwarf on the council, and he is usually tasked with public addresses.
Heading up the Council is the Great Elder, Morgoff Stonefist, an aging dwarf who’s ready to retire.
Other members of the Council:
Representatives from each of the eight districts of Overlook attends the Council, serving as advisers while also airing 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.
