Council of Seven Lords
This political body has three functions. First, they advise the king on matters of state. Second, they manage the military forces of the nation, mustering them in time of war. Third, they have the power to select a new king when a fallen king leaves no heir, as they did with King Bavila I.
The council is typically made up of the ruling lords of each province. The current members of this council are Lord Wilfire Milner, Lady Guratris Runehouse, Lord Cruros Soundinghorn, Lord Frugeon Joysword, Lady Jantranna Arborshate, Lord Thokas Shortcloak, and Lord Vincitore Deltango.
