Government of Tal’Mytherasil
The Council / The Summer Court
The leading, most respected members of the elves of Tal’Mytherasil. With the lack of royal family, the council has ruled the elves for 2300 years. There are factions among the Council, but they are united enough that important work does get done. The Council is moderated by the Exarch, who acts as regent for the absent royals.
The Winter Court
For some the Winter Court is but a rumor, but for elves in the know, the Court itself and its purpose is known, but the membership is a close guarded secret. These wise and powerful elves work behind the scenes to preserve Tal’Mytherasil, sometimes employing less honorable means to do so, if nessessary. The purpose of the Winter court is not at odds with the Summer Court, the end goals are much the same. The Winter Court recognizes their own methods bring the danger of corruption and strive to watch themselves as well.
