Wehnimer's Landing is a very special place. Anyone who's been here and lived to tell you about it can attest to that. Special beyond the blood rains and pregnant trees that are willing to interpret your dreams for you.

It's a place that many cultures and folks from all walks of life can come together to lift up a community under constant threat by eldritch abominations. All without requiring the permission of the "higher born" or the blessing of a moon. This is the promise of the frontier. All this and it only snows half the year.

You've probably seen me around town, my face certainly stands out. The name might not stand out to you though, or what I've done. I came here from Talador as refugee fleeing the Jantalarans. I ran away from Ta'Loenthra to join the Militia and fight Jantalar. Time and time again the Landing has proven to be my home, because it’s the only place that has deigned not to legislate my existence.

The last two decades I've given the Landing my service and stood on y'all's side even when it wasn't favorable to me. Be it losing my militia commission for speaking out on handing more and more control over the town to Imperials to turning down advance after advance from Grishom Stone to defend Mayor Walkar in court.

Now, I'm stepping out from behind my desk as municipal barrister to help lead Wehnimer's Landing to build on Mayor Lylia's work so this town can thrive not just survive.


Campaign Platform

Education

One the issues hampering Wehnimer's Landing is that much of our pool of talent and scholars have to be imported. I mean no disrespect to the guilds and the apprenticeship system, but so many children fall through the cracks there. If we had a a unified curriculum of free education for all in the Landing from the cradle to mastership, well within a few generations those scholars and masters would be homegrown.

Defense

It is a priority to restore our spent defensive structures from the Blight Crisis. For example, the defense towers that were personally destroyed by Magister Octaven. I would see an invoice for those delivered to her. Fortunately, the new Councilman seems pretty well connected to her in this regard. Also want to see the shipwrights back to work again. The program where they were being made in Shanty town was mutually beneficial and needs to resume again.

Imperial Interference

As it stands at the moment Wehnimer's Landing is a Suzerainty of the Sun Throne. The autonomy of local government is become eroded by the addition of the new councilman, but while the attempt to take the Landing's freedoms is a legal battle then who better to fight it then someone who knows frontier and the Rysus Codex cover to back?

Visual Arts

In addition to repairing the town I intend to create a commission to catalog, repair, and preserve all the public art in the Landing.

Commerce

I will send a motion to the town council to free up silvers as grants and microloans for the community to help with rebuilding after the Blight, and as an opportunity to start new businesses. Combined with my initiate to expand and preserve the arts in Wehnimer's Landing we could really see ourselves as a destination as opposed to just a stopover. The temple over in the Vipershroud looks like an great opportunity to accomplish both of these goals.

Shanty Town

Many of the programs I've described here would be offered first in Shanty Town. As a community we are only as strong as our weakness neighborhoods. Its our responsibility to lift up those neighborhoods as high as we can.

Grishom Stone

He couldn't pay me off ten years ago when he framed Walkar Wellington, and he can't get me to be polite to him now as a self-styled blood god. It infuriates him. Despite what ever he says his goal is, his actual goal is to sow discord and have us all at each other's throats. Don't give him the satisfaction.
