The Stolen Lands
The Outlaw Council
Consisting of leaders from the most significant kingdoms,
the Outlaw Council provides the only political stability the
land has ever known. Rulers from all kingdoms are invited to
attend this yearly council in Daggermark, but only lords from
Daggermark, Gralton, Lambreth, Mivon, Pitax, the Protectorate
of the Black Marquis, Sevenarches, Tymon, and Uringen are
truly respected. Other kingdoms are considered too transient
to merit full consideration in the proceedings, though in the
spirit of unity they are allowed to attend and speak occasionally.
Unlike in other meetings, mere representatives are not allowed
to speak—a lord must attend personally to have a voice.
Topics of yearly discourse include negotiating treaties,
defense against mutual threats, food distribution,
recognition of sovereignty, and solving smaller, interpersonal
matters before they become armed conf licts. The meeting
hall where the Outlaw Council gathers is considered neutral
territory—no king rules any other there, even Livondar, Lord
of Daggermark. However, Daggermark’s famed assassins are
on silent duty as servants throughout the meeting, making
the Outlaw Council meeting the worst time of the year to
attempt a Daggermark coup.
