Ulorean Illistim

Jump to: navigation, search

Ulorean Illistim was a post-Lanenreat Argent Mirror who stepped down out of some embarrassment. He was fascinated with foreign cultures, and allowed some humans to live within Ta'Illistim. The existence of "free range gnomes" was a precedent set by a predecessor, Alaein Illistim, which Ulorean used to justify allowing humans to have their own enclave. Unfortunately, there was violence that followed, forcing him to resign. He had ruled for over two centuries at that point, and was on the edge of needing to retire regardless. Convinced by his experiences, Ulorean became a member of the Council of Thrones, and a staunch opponent of interracial mingling.

Ulorean Illistim assumed the Peacock Throne in -2,509 Modern Era (46,598 Illistim) and ruled into his abdication in -2,258 Modern Era (46,849 Illistim). His reign was 251 years.

On either side of the polished copper arch leading into the chamber are two tall displays, each fronted with glass. Their copper fittings match the trim on several cases, whose contents are clothing both modern and historical. A square tile is inset into the floor in the center of the room.

>look coat
The coat itself is simple, its lines clean and its grey leathern surface faintly pebbled. Several small holes mark the jacket's left breast, as does a tattered blue ribbon pinned with a cheap stamped metal disc. Below the coat is a small plaque.

>read coat
In the Common language, it reads:
Argent Mirror Ulorean famously experimented with allowing humans to live in Ta'Illistim, against the advice of the Council of Thrones, though with the support of Ta'Illistim's growing merchant sector. Those humans who lived within the city were required to identify themselves and to account for their comings and goings, as well as any business transactions they made. The ribbon and medallion pinned to this coat mark its owner as a human, living on Aerie Wey, who was authorized to sell iron products.
