Nope, it's me...
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Okay, here's another one.

One stood by two, shot straight and true
While two stood bold and tall
Three was showered in gold and jewels
And four was wan and small
Five opposed the all of them,
Across a barren plain,
All criss-crossed with long riverbeds
But what, then, was their name?
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Fingers?
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

I was going for a hand, since it included the palm, but yeah, close enough.  :)

When I am cast the great and small
Soon shall prosper or shall fall
Pock-marks on a skin of white
Pick the fate or seal the fight.

Measles?

No idea otherwise.

Alea iacta est.

It's like cryptic crossword clues - sometimes the answer comes almost immediately. More often than not, I sit there for hours unable to make any headway, then think, "Oh yes, it's obvious" when I'm told the answer.
