The City of Cihh
There are currently 12 groups with representation on the Council. Like the members, councilors are not individuals but large and powerful groups or families that control the greatest force in the world. While there is not limit to the numbers of Councilors, there has always been between 10 and 12. Whenever there is an even number of Councilors, one is granted the title of “Grand Councilor” and his vote is worth 2 only in the case of ties, but he is also the head of the Merchant Consortium and in times of dire needs can wield directly the full power of the guild.
Because these positions belong to such powerful groups, a new councilor has not been raised from the members in over 500 years.
