Correct! :) Just 4 and 5 left...
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

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.

Bump. Jubal, could you let us know whether Khan got the last one right, please?

The sun warms me, and the mountains stand against me, I am everywhere but nowhere.
I can be fast, I can be slow, and sometimes I am easier to see than usual.
What am I?

Wind or a breeze is the first thing that comes to mind, though I'm not sure in what circumstances that's easier to see...

If it's blowing stuff around it's easier to see.
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

OK, here's a new one:

I was born in the morning with no-one to nurse me,
I envied the sun in the heat of the day;
As it grew cooler I got tanned and lazy,
And I've now fallen dead and I'm rotting away.

What am I?

In solitary halls I wait, sought in acts of fate,
on the brink of lonely minds, on the thoughts of those who wait,
you find me when in life you hesitate, or in the darkness delve,
if you are kind to me I dissipate, if you ignore me I do swell,
many know me through angry words and jealous lovers,
i wear many masks and see through others,
selfish, selfless, I am both,
crippling, relieving, often morose,
I am found when you are lost,
Morbid, sordid, sometimes described as dross.

What am I?
