Originally built as a fortified tavern for session judges (hence the name), this rapidly grew into a large fortified mansion house, then a hamlet, then a village and keep, and now 2,200 people live here. For some 70 years there has been a Windmarch trade fair here during the third week of Harvester, shared with the town of Darnagal.
King’s Justice stands close by a three-way border, between Delaric, Dustbridge, and Eastfair. As a result, no few mercenaries pass through, and many local rulers send emissaries to recruit here. The land was bought by merchants centuries ago, and King’s Justice is virtually a free borough, with the present landholder being an aged and half-enfeebled man with a weak militia (rulership is low). Riotous behavior, brawling, and revelry are no strangers to this increasingly cosmopolitan place. And there are many men hiding from the wrath of deserted rulers and commanding officers lurking among the beggars and cutpurses in the western slums of the village.
