Name: Guild Mayors and Lord Mayors of the City-State of Carasta: City of Carasta

Population (approx.): 9,200
Brief: The Guild Collegium, being an association of Guilds large and small with interests in the Narrows and beyond, decided to step in and try their hand at governing as the aftermath of the collapse of the Ta’arnan Empire left the Narrows with no single ruling body. Each city and town, that came under Guild control (usually willingly), established a Council consisting of representatives of notable Guilds of that settlement. The Council then either appointed or elected a Mayor, invariably from among its own membership, to rule the said settlement. Each Council made its own rules for length of individual terms and methods of election subject to approval of the greater Collegium if challenged.
History: Two years ago, after a campaign highlighting her service to the city, the Council of Guild Collegium elected Guildmistress Malcoume Hodge of the Lamplighter Guild, Prime Minister of the City-State of Carasta and Lord Mayoress of the City of Carasta. Her term is for five years subject to snap elections based on the relative strength and position of her associated faction, the Services Guilds, in the Collegium. The Lamplighters serve in the traditional sense, keeping the mundane and magical lights working across the city, but has also adopted the role of a Nightwatch, with the assistance of the Mercenaries Guild, keeping the bulk of Carasta’s streets quiet and safe.
