Vuegaland Kingmaker Campaign
<Foreigner> Mayor Raston Selline
Ruler of Mivon
The legend of a famed adventurer rising to claim the throne of a nation is an old one, but one that seldom actually happens. Seldom, but not never, as the case of Raston Selline proves. Having spent over a decade adventuring, this famed swordmaster returned to his homeland of Mivon to find it in turmoil, a succesion crisis threatening to tear it apart. Quickly garnering fame due to his duelling skills, highly valued in Mivon, he managed to go from wandering adventurer to a serious contender for the throne within a few short months. Defeating one of his opponents in battle and the rest in duels, he has claimed the rulership of the city. Now, almost twenty years later, Raston is highly respected both in Mivon and in the Outlaw Council – but not so highly respected that he’s not the subject of rumours. The ex-adventurer has not lost his sense of humour or his political acumen, and has been known to spread gossip about his opponents – nothing ever damaging or insulting enough so that those affected would have cause to duel him, but enough to embarrass the ambitious up-and-comers in the nation. Between that and his love for women, fine wine, music and attending the events of the lower classes while in disguise, the Mayor is as much beloved as he is tolerated. No such warm image of him is projected across the River Kingdoms, though. Known as a shrewd negotiator, he has worked hard to ensure that Mivon is seen as one of the strongest states in the River Kingdoms, second only to Daggermark in power. Maintaining close ties to Rostland, he also supports Sevenarches, believing a unified response to the ambitions of Kyonin is crucial if the River Kingdoms are to remain free.
