Member of the Ruling Council
Warlords are part of the Ruling Council and participate in creating/amending bylaws, rank application & appointment votes, and general guild management duties.
A Warlords vote is weighed differently from that of an Elder. Warlords may vote towards members advancing towards the rank of Lord, however, their vote towards all other subjects are weighed at 50%. For example, a Warlord may vote on a bylaw change but their vote is one-half the vote of an Elder, Assitant Guild Master, or Guild Master.

This includes the ability to declare war or peace.
