Dawn Council

Ds5HfKq.jpg
The ruling nobles of Sasserine are known as the Dawn Council, yet in truth this affiliation comprises all of the minor nobles, sages, scribes, clerks, and others who help in the daily business of administration of the city. The Sasserine city watch is controlled by the Dawn Council, and the seven official churches have much invested in this group as well. Beyond Sasserine’s walls, agents of the Dawn Council function as ambassadors, emissaries, missionaries, or even spies. Bards, clerics, fighters, and paladins are the best suited classes for this affiliation.

Symbol

A red spire rising from an island.

Background, Goals, and Dreams:

After emerging From the despotic exploitative rule of the Sea Princes during the Greyhawk Wars, the citizens of Sasserine were reticent to return to traditional rule under a solitary lord-mayor. Instead, rule of the city fell to seven long-standing noble families, each representing one of the city’s seven districts. The driving goal of the Dawn Council is to see Sasserine return to its glorious roots as a port of call for exotic trade and exploration.

Enemies and Allies

Sasserine has no shortage of enemies. The surrounding swamps are rife with bullywug tribes and other savage humanoids that constantly vex the outlying plantations and farms that support the city. The Scarlet Brotherhood is a traditional enemy of the city as well, but it has of late been making pretenses of allegiances and truces. The pirates of the Crimson fleet are another thorn in the Dawn Council’s side, and attacks by their ships on merchants and other ships bound for the city seem to be on the rise. The churches of the city are strong supporters of the Dawn Council, assisting with coin and divine might when needed.

Members:

The seven noble families that comprise the Dawn Council include the Lidus, the Taskerhils, the Arabanis, the Dracktuses, the Knowlerns, the Islatans, and the Lorchesters, yet in truth this affiliation comprises all of the minor nobles, sages, scribes, clerks, and others who help in the daily business of administration of the city. The Sasserine city watch is controlled by the Dawn Council, and the city’s churches have much invested in this group as well. Beyond Sasserite’s walls. agents of the Dawn Council function as ambassadors, emissaries, missionaries, or even spies.
