The Council of Sparkling Stones is an elected[1] council in Mirabar.[2] Members must swear an oath of loyalty to Mirabar and its marchion.[3] It meets each fall to plan the year ahead and organise trade agreements.[4]

CompositionEdit

As of 1368 DR, the Council comprises 42 members. Of these, 10 are shield dwarves and 32 are humans. 16 councilors are female, and 26 are male. The marchion (currently Elastul Raurym) is the chief justice. Elections are held annually in the spring to determine the new members who will take their positions at the next meeting in the fall.[5]

MeetingEdit

The Council meets once a year in the fall, usually over four days. There is an informal discussion, then a chance for short, formal speeches, then a secret ballot to decide upon what has been discussed. The marchion then travels to the cities in the south to personally bring the news, and to negotiate trade, acquiring deals for luxuries not available in Mirabar.[5]
