Hurm: Government and Politics

Led by Regnant Saviar Morgensen, the feudal government of Hurm is still mostly pirates and smugglers. With the rise of Angelica, the slavers have been driven underground, but still have safe havens in and around the city and on some of the islands. Regnant Morgensen is firmly in camp with Angelica; although, he has never said exactly why. But he follows her lockstep, and so Hurm has, for the first time, a governmental tax to pay. The regnant has a council of the most powerful merchants (and by definition, smugglers) under him, facilitating deals and approving or occasionally disapproving city law. With so much reconstruction going on, no one is paying much attention to what is happening in the courthouse, however.
