Greyhawk Monarch Poll Results
#1 Queen Yolande of Celene at 27% was most popular. Not only is she elven but this is the only female on the list. It shows some of us are ready for a female ruler, although if I threw Countess Belissica of Urnst on the poll, I bet that vote would've got split!
#2 King Kimbertos of Keoland is a no-brainer with 24% of the vote. The Sheldomar Valley is quite popular in the Greyhawk community and it helps he is a powerful ranger. Imagine a King Aragorn post-War of the Rings. Who wouldn't like him to be king?
#3 King Belvor IV of Furyondy at 16% is another fan fave. He is not only lawful good, but his nation is on the front lines of the war against the ultimate evil, Iuz. This casts him more in the role of a Lord of the Rings type of ruler than Kimbertos. What has Kimbertos had to worry about? Giants?
#4 Lord Mayor Nerof Gasgal of Greyhawk came in at 12% of the vote narrowly beating Ivid V. For being the ruler of the Gem of the Flanaess, the settings' core city and driver of adventure, I am surprised he didn't do better. Then again, Nerof is a former thief whose election to the head of the city is dubious. I can see maybe, why monarchs are more romantic in this list.
#5 Overking Ivid V of the Great Kingdom came in with 11% narrowly beat by Greyhawk's mayor. The Great Kingdom is evil overall, but Ivid does have some qualities worth picking him. He has power hungry madness, undead appeal, fiendish guards and a relic throne. I hear in the Great Kingdom he is polling at 95%.
#6 King Archbold III of Nyrond sadly came in last with 7% Apparently Nyrond gets no love. They are the ones who will probably save the world too...
