I love your Pathfinder Tales fiction! The story from the Council of Thieves AP is what made me want to go out and buy pathfinder fiction. Count Varian Jeggare is my new favorite character in fantasy fiction. I love your work and can't wait to read more!
I realize that this discussion is a little old, but I just wanted to put my two cents in. I got this book for Christmas (this morning), and I have absorbed over half so far. I've never read any of Gygax's fiction before. It is awesome. I can't wait to get the Inhetep trilogy with the gift cards I got.
I'm running a homebrew campaign set in and around Magnimar.
I had a few questions that i can't seem to find the answer to in the article in Pathfinder #2:
How does one become a member of the Council of Ushers? are they elected positions?
How are new Lord-Mayors chosen when the previous one dies/steps down/whatever?
same thing with the Justice Court, are they appointed by the Council of Ushers or the Lord-Mayor. Are justices elected?
