Heralds of the Crescent Moon
The Council of Kings
“We are at our strongest when we work together!” - High King Tolemus II
Though formed as a wartime Council, this ruling body remained at the end of the War. The four Kingdoms saw how much more they could accomplish together instead of working apart, and continued that relationship. The current High King is Jarrod III, he has reigned for 22 years. Although the Council is supposed to elect the High King every year, Jarrod has remained the defacto ruler due to his rumored blackmail of one of the other kings, King Tolemus V. The younger Tolemus always votes for and supports Jarrod. While there is no proof, it is widely believed that Jarrod orchestrated this situation. As he controls the power to break any tie, this always works to his advantage, give him controlling interest on the Council.
The Council has jurisdiction in the four Kingdoms only and has no governing power over the Wizards or the Conclave, though while in Warrior territory the Wizards respect the laws and customs. Local law enforcement is handled by constabularies and an excellent court system.
