d100 Local Mayor Favours



Every village mayor has a favour for some dodgy wandering murder hobos. And if they cause trouble you set the mob on them. They might offer town funds not their own to do these jobs. Lots of mayors are jerks if you don't like it run for office. I guess petty evil spirits and evil petty gods might do stuff like this too. Possibly getting a reputation for beating town mayors might reduce the use of this table in play.

d12 Bad Mayor Basics
1 Greedy for cash and hoarding wealth, a miser who hates poor
2 Uses power to own everything and skim from everyone several times
3 Uses bailiffs and magistrates and a small prison to punish troublemakers 
4 Loyal agent to a lord, skims plenty and sells local assets
5 Loves fashionable metaphysics and occultism, fascinated by travelling weirdos
6 Every job in town is mayors relative no matter how dim
7 Mayor works with a fanatic priest and uses religion as the basis of authority
8 In debt to mob acts as an informant to bandits and releases guild criminals
9 Outdated conservative and convinced can sense the wicked and likes mobs
10 Has many servants they treat so poorly that other slavers find tasteless and not best practice
11 Is a member of a secret cult in secret usually one of the leaders
