Law of the Land

Fri 18 Oct 2019, 19:38

does anyone have any suggestions or what you have come up with more then in the book about the  about the Law of the Land

in the book "Law of the Land should be created – rules to govern the behavior of the newcomers in Ravenland. These laws stated, among other things, that the humans had to stay south of the rivers Seyster and Elya".

Hmm, interesting. Could be fun to play with this if you have a group of Redrunners say that the PCs run into. Maybe some Dwarven clans have this in a dusty library somewhere. For the vast majority of people in Ravenland though this would have stopped being relevant centuries ago.

So, the way I interpret it is that the old treatises between elves, dwarfs and humans are long gone. After four Alder wars, the original Law of the Land probably has been completely forgotten.

Now, it's possible that most human settlements follow some sort of derivative Alderland law, while elves, dwarfs and other kin keep their own traditions.

Considering that most surface settlements were isolated from everyone other than Rust Brothers for the last 300 years, I would expect that almost every human town had developed their own particular set of social norms, based on Alderlander tradition.
