The Council of Ten was a group of halfling wizards who were amongst the founders of newer Icemule Trace (not the original town destroyed by glacier).

In brief, the Ten are all mages who worshiped seemingly Luukos and were involved in a cult of Amasalen. Initially they were actually a "healthy" political force in town, but that changed when power was whiffed under their noses by a serpent messenger, leading to their living entombment in the crypt of Talbot Dabbings.

The members of the Council were: Thurfel, Gavrail, Elymir, Thulevier, Aslakian, Trianvar, Cheritz, Prangar, Zeban, and Thalaes. Thurfel was the most powerful of the group. Gavrail and Cheritz were the only females amongst the Ten, and Gavrail became the leader of what became known as The Nine, i.e, those of the Ten originally left entombed after Thurfel was freed through magic granted the Ten by the power of Amasalen.

From March 1999 through December 2002, Thurfel initially, and later the other members of the Council (all liches at this point), were the focal point of a major quest.

A statue commemorating Council of Ten is located in Icemule's Magical Burrow neighborhood:

>look statue
Eight male and two female halflings are carved into this tall marble statue, the sculptor depicting them far larger than life.  The expressions on their faces exude self-confidence ... perhaps even over-confidence.  Hands raised in various spellcasting gestures, the group stands with eyes tilted upward.  One exception stares straight ahead, his stone eyes looking out on something different from the others.  Around the base of the statue, words have been scored onto the stone with flame.
There appears to be something written on it.

In the Common language, it reads:
THE COUNCIL OF TEN:  Thurfel, Gavrail, Elymir, Thulevier, Aslakian, Trianvar, Cheritz, Prangar, Zeban, Thalaes
