Council of Four, the
The minotaur nation is governed by four great elders: War Leader, Peace Leader, Trade Leader, and Death Leader. This council resides in Salm. Each leader rises to power in a different way. War Leader is selected by non-lethal combat, Peace Leader is elected by popular vote, Trade Leader goes to the highest bidder, and Death Leader always goes to the eldest Priest of the Death God.
Every year a new minotaur may be selected for one of the council positions. It is the Death Leader’s choice each year which Councilor will have to defend his position.
Although they have different titles, each leader’s vote is equal. A majority is required to take action on any issue.
