The Empty Throne
The Jabbermoot is the representative body which rules the city of Jabberport in the absence of an emperor. Established fifty years previously by Talos Leonid before his departure on the Askelian Campaign, the Jabbermoot has ruled the city ever since.
The Jabbermoot is notoriously corrupt. Seats in the Jabbermoot are auctioned off once every eight years to the highest bidders. With a few notable exceptions, the Jabbermoot primarily consists of foreign spies, wealthy merchants, and greedy nobles.
