The Council of Stormwind is the main body of the community service in the Kingdom of Stormwind.
Basic function of the Stormwind Council is to act as the political body of Stormwind, serving King Varian Wrynn and the population of the Stormwind Kingdom to its fullest. The simplest way to describe the SW Council, or compare it to anything, would be a medieval house of nobles, which take decisions and resolve problems/crises/issues, alongside with their King or in his name and will, with the exception for the fact that the members of the SW council are not gluttonous nobles who only think for themselves. There have been many rumours about corruption within the ranks, but so far none of the people associated with the Council has admitted OOCly or seen any IC proof of such a rumour, which also makes the Council quite a reliable organization within Stormwind for its devotion to what they do.
The Stormwind Council also organizes community events associated with the duties and work they do, alongside with the fact they resolve issues between different parties of Role Players within the community, both in character and out of character. Idea is for the Council to be something like a regulatory body or a corner stone within the SW community, where people with issues will have someone to go to with the clear idea that they will help to resolve them.
The system with which decisions is taken is a standard majority vote one, the Chairlady/man gives the chance for the ministers to vote on the issue brought forth and its resolution, and the ministers vote over the solution backing up their decision with arguments or abstaining from the vote.
Functions go as following: Ministry of Defence, Internal Affairs, Foreign Affairs, Justice, Magic, and Trade.
The Council members follow the codex of rules and regulations (see entry: Rules and regulations of the Stormwind Council).
