Mayors can give you jobs and quests, which increase your reputation with the town. Some of these quests can help improve the prosperity of the town, which influences goods prices and taxes. A full quest list can be found on the quests page, but some of these jobs are:
- Escort caravan
- Bring (Drink) to tavern (Drink may consist of beer or wine)
- Rescue kidnapped girl
- Deal with looters (multiple small groups of nearby looters)
- Hunt down bandits (find and kill a small, fast group of bandits)
- Deal with troublesome bandits (kill a medium sized group of nearby bandits)
- Bring cattle herd (to another town)
- When a faction is at war, a city may want you to silence warmongers preventing peace within the warring factions, giving you many thalers for doing so.
Mayors also give you information about the politics of their faction, as well as informing you of the general prosperity of the town and surrounding areas.
New in With Fire & Sword, Mayors also issue trade permits and allow players to send merchant caravans. Trade permits are supposed to be waivers from taxes, which increases the amount of money you receive from caravans.
Mayors also permit rulers of a town to build structures and fill offices.
