The Office of the Lord-Mayor is one of the two ruling bodies of Magnimar, alongside the Council of Ushers. However, due to the constant internal squabbling amongst the council, the lord-mayor is by far Magnimar's most politically powerful person.[1] The current lord-mayor is Sabriyya Kalmeralm.[2]

Powers

In theory, the lord-mayor has to obey any mandate agreed upon by the Council of Ushers, although the previous lord-mayor, Haldmeer Grobaras, completely ignored council mandates on several occasions. The lord-mayor is allowed to issue mandates to deal with important and immediate issues, but these decrees do not have to be approved by the council.[1]

History

Haldmeer Grobaras

The previous lord-mayor, Haldmeer Grobaras, embodied many of the worst possible abuses from such a powerful position. Haldmeer had claimed the largest residence in the city, Defiant's Garden as his own; he had worn only the finest and most expensive Chelaxian fashion; and he had made many important decisions based almost entirely on the quality of the bribe each side had offered him.[1]

Haldmeer abused the powers of his office and used them to issue horribly biased and sometimes downright damaging decrees. Only his assistant Valanni Krinst, who had to implement the lord-mayor's decrees, prevented him from doing far more damage to the city by ignoring or altering many of them.[1]
