“Judgment” might be the thickest canon of all holy books. Thick black covers of wood typically bind the book, with sturdy leather straps keeping it closed. First-time readers might expect a bland, joyless book of punishments or images of grotesque executions. Instead, the stern canon of The True contains a surprisingly colorful palette of images. A large segment of it is devoted to laws and punishments, but it also contains exhortations to live righteously, comply with laws and tell the truth.
Worshipers may not attempt to escape a prison if they were justly jailed, and may not free a justly jailed person. When a person is executed as punishment for a crime they have committed and for which they have been tried, a Truthseeker says, “The Blind One sees. He has spoken.” Vigilantism or justice without a trial is a profound heresy that the faith strives to stamp out at great cost.
Nearly every city contains copies of Judgment for sale, either in a temple or shrine of The True, or in the home of the principal dispenser of justice. It costs 55 gp.
