The Purple Pewter Director is the leader of the Purple Pewter Mining Company, one of the eight companies that form the Consortium that governs the dwarven capital city of Keldagrim.
As a director, it is his job to ensure not only that his company is properly managed, but also that Keldagrim is governed well, while paying particular attention to the city's booming economy.
During The Giant Dwarf, players may join the Purple Pewter Mining company. To do this, they must first do a series of item-retrieval tasks for the Purple Pewter Secretary, and then do a series of tasks for the director. If they join the company, the director's head will be featured atop the statue that stands on the River Kelda.
