His royal highness is crippled in bed, peasant. I am the law now and the law deems you responsible for poaching in woods that belong to the crown.Court chartermen are lawspeakers who are employed by monarchs and their vassals. They memorize the charters of freedom and responsibilities that apply to their realm, look for ways to refine them, and offer judicial guidance to their employer. Court chartermen are well paid and receive special privileges that come with their rank. If their employer is unavailable to cast judgement or the realm is governed by a regent, the charterman is the only person who may deem people guilty or innocent.
ResponsibilitiesIn addition to the standard tasks of a typical lawspeaker, court chartermen must actively seek to improve the code of law. Regular meetings are held to discuss judicial and legislative matters between court chartermen and the younger lawspeakers who've been assigned to their service. Ideas generated by such meetings will be presented to the king or any other ruler that employs their own court charterman. Chartermen coordinate efforts with other lawspeakers to ensure that local authorities enforce the law justly. If they or their subordinates discover proof of a figure of authority breaking or bending the law inappropriately, the court charterman must inform their employer.
