The town is governed by a town council, consisting of volunteers from several of the local families who can prove residency in the town for at least three generations. Only one representative is allowed per family, and any family meeting the residency requirements is permitted a deligate although not all eligible families exercise this right. Attendance at meetings is higher during the cold season and lowest during the harvests.
Guilds and Factions
The Followers of the Hidden Flame have a small commune on site, providing medical assistance to the town as well as rudimentary training in the tradesmen magics.
The Andisol Valley stretches around Hopestaff in all directions, leaving the town's residents with ample views of farmland as far as the eye can see. The Springbass River is clean and clear and a popular destination for the town's youth on hot days, flowing lazily just outside the town.
