Plar of Rookroost
The Plar of Rookroost is the traditional rank given to the city’s ruler by the city’s most powerful merchants, clergy, and civic leaders. The word “plar” is Oeridian and, translated loosely, means “He who rules over foreigners”. In ancient texts, plar refers to an Oeridian ruler of Flan subjects. In current usage, it just means someone who rules over a diverse population (as opposed to, say, a king).
