Steward Dolk of House Hawklin,
I am hereby informing House Hawklin I am opening a case against your Lord for Reckless Endangerment of Militia Officials. The charges will be brought against both Lord Hawklin and Sir Highweather of the Fellowship of Helm. A minor crime that ordinarily carries a punishment of 500 gold.
As a noble both Lord Hawklin and Sir Highweather are entitled to various rights. The full crime is that both Lord Hawklin and Sir Highweather purposely, and with malicious intent, have kept important information from the militia concerning a number of serious threats to the city. This has resulted in militia casulaties, and put a number of militia informants in great danger.
I am hereby requesting both Lord Hawklin and Sir Highweather make way to the militia tower for questioning so that the crimes can be investigated fully.
I doubt I need to remind you, Steward Dolk, of your Lord's rights.
Any noble accused of a crime shall have the right have their case heard or reviewed by a council of nobles appointed by the Throne of Cormyr.
Any noble accused of a crime, short of Treason and Murder, shall have the first such offense treated as a category lower than it is for purpose of the law under the supposition that a Lord who commits these acts has likely done so only for the good of the nation or through honest error and not from true malice or disregard of the law.
No noble within Arabel's fiefs may maintain a military force of more than 50 soldiers and men at arms and golems, and no more than ten wizards within that number.
Any noble may pay a weregild rather than face ignominious punishment for a crime. The weregild shall be set at 5,000 lions for a Capital Crime, 750 lions for a Serious Crime, 400 lions for a Minor Crime, and 150 lions for a Petty Crime.
This punishment would bring to bear a 150 gold fine to both Sir Highweather and Lord Cuthbert Hawklin. Should they plead guilty at this stage, this fine can be deposited at the militia tower.
