Fragments of Aeterna
The Council Aeternus was a separate body from the law making body. It’s sole purpose was to guarantee the continuation of Aeterna and its people. They also heavily influence public relations, and would often launch ad campaigns to sway public opinion of things if they believed it would benefit Aeterna. They were also in charge of foreign relations, keeping Aeterna in good favor with neighboring civilizations was key. The Council is blamed for the failed voyage to Eden, as well being accused of pushing the government to go to war with the Ilithid. The Council members, originally 12 magistrates, have gone into hiding since the fall of the old government. One has been confirmed killed by the Divination Covenant.
