Legacy of Ohm
The city government is split between the rule of the Emperor and his Council of Lords and the Amber Conclave. The Conclave is composed of mages splintered from the Platinum Sanctuary far in the Southlands. These exile mages came to the ancient rules of Ohmst offering their magical assistance in aiding in the cities construction of the Grand Elevator. The Conclave was and is solely responsible for the construction of the Forged and the secrets of their creation. This knowledge was brought with them in their sojourn fron the Sanctuary and some have rumored that it was stolen and thus the reason for their far flung travel. Their tower looms from the southern reaches of the palace grounds and is the single tallest building in Ohmst. The spindly building branches off and twist up into the heavens in ways that can assure any bystander that its creation was magical in origin. The mages also hold sovereignty over the East and West Forge Wells on the northern edge of the city. These quarters are deep craters burrowing down into the roots of the cliff Ohmst sits upon. The wells are the home to the mighty creation forges that give birth to the Forged. The well also houses the industry of the city crafting and maintaining the Lightning Rail that runs around the edge of the bay to the Thunderhead Keep and Wrathpoint Fortress
The conclave is governed by two bodies the Lesser and Greater Squares. The Greater Square sits in council with the Emperor while the Lesser Square is tasked with the governing of the Conclave and its interests within the city. The Conclave is the true ruling power in the city. No major decision is ever made without their approval.
