    I'm new to the job (my mage Mylene is governor of LA's Britain), and was curious about a few things...

    Is the "office" cottage useful for anything? (other than announcing that I am sitting in the chair)
    What are the items in the stone for?

    The office is just a place. The only special thing it does is the seat only allows the governor to sit there. Otherwise it's no more or less useful than any other building in your city.

    The city stone acts as a mailbox of sorts for the governor. People drop items on the character standing at the stone and the are stored "in" the stone. Only the governor can open it.

    There should be a sticky in UHall where you can request it be added to your account. You can also discuss with Riyana.

    Governors:
    - You can set trade deals
    - You can grant Titles to citizens of your town.
    - You can write a message on your towns bulletin board.

    Those are the basic powers of the Governor, beside the option of participating in the council meeting.

    Is nothing more than an RP tool, you have no power whatsoever in anything.....
    Best you can get out of being Gov, is making your own events and working alongside your shard EM to create events and say stuff at them
    Depending, how open your EM is, he can let you have good amounts of RP and make crazy stories..... I am about to Kidnap another Gov but dont tell anybody.... LOL

    I regularly use the office for RP related meetings. For non-rpers, its just a cool chair that only you can use.
