The Law of Seasons

The Law of Seasons is the legal system based on traditions followed in the druidic societies of Kymuria, the North, and to a lesser extend, in some area of Faenarild. The Laws were drafted by the Arcanes in accordance with Nature, and passed along by the druids. Here are a few highliths:

  1. There is a time for everything: Spring is to plow the fields; Summer is for war; Fall is the season of harvest and Winter a time for spiritual endeavors.
  2. The Lord of the land must pass judgement in accordance of the Law of Seasons, on the advice of the Druids and his Bailiffs.
  3. A maimed lord is unfit to rule.
  4. At the feast, the greatest hero present gets the first share, and the lord after him.
  5. Reputation is everything.
  6. A man who takes another man’s life will compensate the victim’s family. If he doesn’t, the victim’s family can repay itself with blood.
  7. All are born free.
  8. A man who can’t pay a debt becomes the slave of the person he owes it to until such time that the debt is repaid.
  9. Reading and Writing is prohibited.
  10. The practice of Magic is allowed for the Druids only.
  11. Marriage can be contracted during the Spring, and broken during the Winter.
