BURPS Scales of War
Councilmember Eoffram Troyas is a new addition to the Brindol city council. As such, he is less prone to the traditional means of accomplishing important tasks. In a short time, he has established a reputation as an outspoken, and sometimes combative, public figure. A half-elf, he has shown little of his race’s good natured tendency toward patience.
One of Troyas’s most recent controversial remarks was that he intended to use adventurers to aid in cutting downon recent bandit attacks in the Elsir Vale. “It’s time to think outside the box. I will do what I feel is necessary to defeat evil every time it pops up it’s ugly head.”. Other members of the council-despite the city’s recent history and survival thanks to the efforts of adventurers-were dubious, but willing to give Councilmember Troya’s policy a chance-to fail.
If tradition serves & rumors persist, many of the more entrenched public figures secretly believe that the mercurial nature of adventurers make them eminently unsuitable for the defense of the city. At least, that’s their public stance. Privately, rumors on the street continue to circulate about graft & embezzlement among the council, causing many to wonder if such members of the council would rather see the funds that are used to hire adventurers end up in their pockets.
As soon as the 3Bs defeated the ogre, word reached Councilmember Troyas within the day. The assaults upon the city proper were a fresh outrage, especially to a man who lost his family to the Red Hand’s assault ten years earlier.
