Erosis - Valtherion
The Council of Coins
The Council of Coins is the ruling council of Quantivas. The 16 positions on the council are filled by the leaders of the most prominent noble families in Valtherion. The positions are hereditary, but can be replaced if there is not qualified heir or by a vote of the council. During civil war 1,200 years ago, all the Coin members but two were slain in a mass assassination attempt. The remaining two members were on opposite sides of the resulting conflict – the winner was House Combre which took over leadership of Quantivas and appointed 16 new houses to the Council. Therefore, no house can claim to have sat on the Council since the beginning, and some houses bear a faded malignant grudge over their lost seat.
