This article is about an older version of DF.

The governor noble arrives at a population of 80 once you have completed enough diverse tasks (see below), changing your fortress from a Town to a City. His only purpose, aside from making mandates, is to permit the arrival of the Duke. If a foreign diplomat arrives and attempts to meet with a noble who is unavailable, then the Governor will conduct the meeting instead, albeit at a very significant diplomatic disadvantage (most notably resulting in much lower tree-cutting quotas).

You must complete a sufficient quantity of various jobs during the previous year in order to trigger the arrival of the Governor. The criteria appear to be 5 of the following: 50 crafting jobs, 50 metal-related jobs, 50 wood-related jobs, 20 gem jobs, 50 stone jobs, 50 food jobs.
