An interesting write-up on the 'knowing god' but I feel compelled to make one
quibble: it is implied that LM lawspeakers have the authority to make judicial
decisions. In all the write-ups I've seen of Sartarite society the lawspeaker
is the expert on the law and on precedent who advises the chief, who actually
has the authority to make the judgement. Perhaps lawspeakers can deal with
minor cases and adjudicate some disputes. But I think the final authority
lies with the nobles.
