Lord Mayor of Sanctum
The office of Lord Mayor is a unique creation of Belaus Hammertone. Believing that (at least in theory) the office of hereditary Lord of Ardhome and of political Mayor of Sanctum should be recognized separately, Belaus chose to institute the twin office.
The Lord (or Lady) of Ardhome, ruler of Castle Ardhome, is responsible for the marshaling, upkeep, and leadership of the armed forces of Sanctum.
The Mayor of Sanctum is the political figure in charge of Sanctum’s government. Because there is no over-arching kingdom or fiefdom which claims Sanctum as its own, the highly independent Sanctum citizens look to the Mayor as much for cultural and moral leadership as for political leadership.
