As owner and proprietor of the Black Lion Trading Company, I have the proven leadership skills and business acumen that is sorely needed on the Captain’s Council. With your support, I will secure a trade agreement with the Zephyrites that benefits us all.
If I am elected to the Captain’s Council, I’ll show my gratitude for your support in the following ways:
- I’ll slash prices on Black Lion Keys for four whole weeks
- I’ll sponsor important Fractals of the Mist research into the Fall of Abaddon, to be completed by the end of the year
- I’ll host a rotation of popular activities like Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.
You can find me in the Zephyr Sanctum, working for the best interest of Lion’s Arch.
excerpt from Abaddon's lore from the wiki:
In 1075 AE, worshipers of Abaddon, General Kahyet
and Warmarshal Varesh Ossa
attempted to enact Nightfall
, thereby returning Abaddon to the mortal plane with the Great Margonite Temple
as the center of his rule. Abaddon, with the help of Dhuum
, was almost successful, but was stopped by the Order of the Sunspears
and the Order of Whispers
, who entered the Realm of Torment to defeat him. In his final moments, Abaddon's power threatened to run out of control and destroy Tyria, but it was absorbed by Spearmarshal Kormir
, who became the Goddess of Truth
using a power that had been granted to her by the Five Gods.
I’ve stood by the people of Lion’s Arch in good times and bad, defending her from all manner of threat. Now I want to ensure the security of our beloved city in a different capacity, as a member of the Captain’s Council. I’ll need your support to establish a fair trade treaty between Zephyr Sanctum and Lion’s Arch.
If I’m fortunate enough to earn a position on the Captain’s Council, here’s what you can expect from Ellen Kiel:
- I’ll reduce waypoint travel prices for four weeks’ time
- I’ll support important Fractals of the Mists research into the Thaumanova Reactor explosion by the end of the year
- I’ll introduce a rotating schedule of activities such as Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.
Come find me in Zephyr Sanctum; let’s work together for a brighter future!
from the wiki about the Thaumanova Reactor:
Thaumanova Reactor is the location of a ruined asuran
city in northwest Metrica Province
. It was recently destroyed by an Inquest
experiment gone awry, occurring beneath the city and the reactor exploding and subsequently releasing chaos magic. Due to the large amount of chaos magic in the area, creatures from across the continent get transported in and out of the area. The Thaumanova Reactor is divided into five main sections: the southwest which has been turned arctic, the southeast which has become poisonous, the northeast and lower area containing the river with an aquatic aspect, the north which contains fire-based creatures, and the central, the location of the explosion. After the explosion, the energy source
that the Inquest was experimenting on was moved to the Thaumacore Inquiry Center
in Toxal Bog
, causing the chaos effect to spread northward. This effects of the underground experiment also affected other areas such as Chaos Crystal Cavern
in Iron Marches
