Trial in Andergast

Postby Demoguy » Thu Sep 13, 2018 2:52 pm

Let's say a noble in Andergast was accused of a serious crime.

How would a trial be handled?

Since Andergast has a fairly strict feudal system, there are few recorded laws and usually the local ruler passes judgment based on tradition and their own view.

If the accused is a low-ranking local noble (let's say a knight in a baron's retinue), the accuser would need to bring the case before the liege lord. High-ranking nobles themselves can only be judged by the king.
Needless to say in both cases the accuser needs to have sufficient standing or the case sufficient gravity for the judge in question to even hear the case.

If we're talking about a foreign noble being accused in Andergast, I think it all depends on the local influence of said noble. If they're from far away and don't command much respect, they'd be dealt with by the ruler of the local estate. If they do rank highly, their case might be brought before a baron or even the king.

If you have the Warring Kingdoms supplement, pages 67 and 88 may be of interest.
