In 5120, the candidates for Mayor in Wehnimer's Landing were Faerinn Greatsinger, Leafiara Autumnwind, and Xorus Kul'shin. Voting began on March 21 and ended on March 24. The winner was Leafiara.

To vote in this election, a character had to have been a Landing Citizen for 90 days. Voting Booths were established in various locations in Wehnimer's Landing, allowing one vote per account, and available 24/7 to allow players the chance to log in and cast their vote.

Faerinn

Faerinn Greatsinger, "The Last Wolf of Talador," is a member of House Brigatta. He is of many skills and talents, and is a bard active on both sides of the Dragonspine. Faerinn is an accomplished painter and songwriter, yet also serves as a soldier and legal counsel. He serves as a municipal barrister in Wehnimer's Landing and advocate in Ta'Illistim. Faerinn, as always, stands for elven rights. He hopes to thwart further Imperial expansion of the Landing. He seeks to repair and preserve public art, and to revitalize tourism and night life in town. He promises a colorful, brighter future.

  • Campaign Items: Faerinn is campaigning with a bright pink opossum-shaped button that reads, "Faerinn 5120: Painting a brighter future, together." Slogans from his signs around town include: "Faerinn 5120: Painting a brighter tomorrow, together." and "Faerinn 5120: Always on our side."

Leafiara

Well known throughout the Western Reaches, Leafiara Autumnwind is a fixture between Wehnimer's Landing, Icemule Trace and Solhaven. She can regularly be found patrolling the Vornavis Caravansary for bandits, scouring the Sanctum of Scales of undead, and resting her laurels in the Landing's Town Square Central or Solhaven's Liabo Plaza. Some of the things that she is known for throughout the region are rescues at all hours and locations, low priced chrisms sold individually or in bulk from her shops, destroying the Duskruin Arena with her friends and family and her nearly famous addiction to chocolate and cookies. When she isn't out and about the lands, she spends her time working as Twilight Hall's Event Planner and providing service as a Mentor in Silverwood Manor. She is a passionate and energetic citizen of the Landing and works diligently to protect and serve the people of not just the Landing, but anywhere she can get to quickly. Always willing to offer assistance through spiritual spells, blesses, advice and more, Leafiara is a charismatic and approachable figure. - Written by Khylynnia SparrHawk, Campaign Manager

  • Campaign Items: Leafiara is campaigning with an asymmetrically winged campaign button that reads, "Team Leafi: Embrace the Chaos!" Slogans from her signs around town include: "Vote Leafiara, a Night and Day Difference!" and "Forging the Future Together. Team Leafiara!"
  • More Campaign Info: If you want to get to know Leafiara, and follow her campaign, her schedule and other information can be found on this page: Leafiara's Mayoral Campaign 5120.

Xorus

Xorus Kul'shin has been a shadowy unelected figure in the background of the local government for several years. He regards the mayoral office as far too weak and ineffectual, and the other factions of government too independent, for the Landing to rise above the condition of a failed state or backwater. His interest is the consolidation of his own power in the region, so that the Empire will eventually formally cede control of it to himself. Welcoming such warm relations with his fellow human nobles, Xorus aspires to become Baron of Darkstone so that we will retain all of the freedoms worth keeping.

  • Campaign Items: Xorus is campaigning with a black vruul skin button with a three-lobed burning eye reading, "Obey Xorus." Slogans from his signs around town include: "Civil Disobedience Is Still Disobedience: Obey Xorus.", "Why Choose The Lesser Evil? Vote Xorus.", and "The End Is Nigh! Our Lord is the Dreadlord!"
