Okay so this might be an odd question but it is one that I kinda need an answer to.
In 1E, people were given positions as Eisenfurst as a result of having posession of a vein of Dracheneisen. Of course, with the changes to Dracheneisen in 2E, this is no longer a feasible prospect. However, this begs the question: How does someone like ol' Nick Trague or Falk Fischler end up in a position of power? I genuinely can't think of anything, and thus am turning to the brains of this forum for help.
