Mayor Gilmore Amring
Mayor of Olfden
A wizard of some little talent, Gilmore Amring possesses more power as the well-meaning but foolish
mayor of Olfden. Despite his blunders and frequent faux pas (especially when meeting with dignitaries),
Amring remains immensely popular in the town. Serving his fifth straight (and sixth overall) 3-year term
as mayor, Amring continues to lead Olfden with a laissez-faire philosophy (with heavy emphasis, his critics
say, on the “laissez”).
Some wonder if Amring’s antics are a front, meant to relax those around him and let his
opponents underestimate him. These speculators point to the Night of Silver Blood, when
Amring stood atop the walls of the town himself, leading members of the watch and militia
with precision and skill. They also note how prosperous the town has become because of Mayor
Amring’s economic policies.
Despite the claims of his critics and his well-deserved (and accurate) reputation for his
bumbling ways, Gilmore Amring is actually a competent and capable leader. As his supporters
guess and his policies show, he can drop the illusion of buffoonery when the situation demands
it (for the most part—Gilmore truly possesses all the grace and agility of a falling rock).
