In-Game Text

"Where there was strife, let there be kinship. Where there was hunger, let there be bread. Where yesteryear the pyres burned, let there be law."

The Lawspeaker's position is held in high regard by traditional Hearthling society. The tasks of the lawspeaker vary with the seasons, but he is always called upon to perform his duties when disputes need to be settled, and when oaths be sworn or renewed. Having the Lawspeaking skill allows your character to found villages. Begin constructing the village idol by choosing (sic) "Form Village", in the adventure menu.


Anyone with the skill Lawspeaking can click on a Village Idol of a village without a Lawspeaker and becomes the new lawspeaker of this village. The Lawspeaker has several abilities:

  • Revoke the Privilege! = Disbands a personal claim (within the village in question and lawspeaker must be standing on the personal claim when attempting to disband) by spending Village Authority.
  • Oath of Allegiance = Invites the person used on to join the village.
