The Council Cavaliers
Ever since the Paroxysm a few years ago, the Archcouncil has been meeting every couple weeks at various locations across the planes. At the most recent meeting, the 60th Council of the Most Grave Crash at the Twain, they established the Council Cavaliers. Just over a thousand individuals were granted this title and issued warrants of trade.
It is the hope of the Archcouncil that by empowering these fortunate few and giving them access to the halls of power, the multiverse will have a better shot at resolving the damage of the Paroxysm. The Cavaliers have much to gain politically and monetarily from mass trade being resumed across the planes since they now have the authority to conduct trade, a privilege known previously only to giants of industry.
This emergency action has alarmed many powerful people, but word of it is still slowly trickling across the Dodekapolis and down the social ladder. It remains to be seen what the macro effects of this decision will be.
