Notes: This isn't entirely correct; the Council existed before Kerath's abdication. The pre-Lord Council is mentioned in the DRC notebooks for Ahlsendar, Rakeri, Naygen, Ti'amel, Lemashal, Ji, Demath, and Kerath.
The Council (D'ni: Kåligo, kaligo) was the second form of D'ni's ruling body, succeeding the monarchy when King Kerath abdicated the throne. Its members, made up of the Five Lords, each of the Major Guilds' Grand Masters, and nineteen representatives from each of the Major Guilds, met in a large chamber inside the Guild Hall in Ae'gura.
