10.7 CITY AND COMMUNE LEADERS
The titles of leaders differ based on the political structure and size of its territories (number of villages controlled). Leaders are elected through a general election and, because they are meant to be unbiased with regard to any guild, cannot hold any elected guild office. The most notable power of leaders is to appoint Ministers to various important positions, though such appointments must be confirmed by one of the other members of the ruling council. Ministers are immune to political challenges from the populace. A leader has all the commands of a normal member of the ruling council (except confirming his or her own ministerial appointments), with some additions: APPOINT <ministry> <citizen> Appoints someone to a Ministry. Valid ministries are: Power, Treasurer, Steward, Trade, Chancellor, Culture, Librarian, Education, Security. FUNDS COFFERS The leader is the only person, aside from the Steward and their aides, who can see the amount of gold in the city coffers. CITY PATRON <god> / COMMUNE PATRON <god> The leader may appoint any member of the city/commune's pantheon as the Divine Patron of the city/commune.
