Court of Lenderula

Court of Lenderula

Before the Order of the Silver Crescent conquered the Starlost Mountains, the inhabitants of the mountains had organized themselves into a judiciocracy. This judiciocracy was, in the end, based in the city of Lenderula. Judges from across the mountains would hear cases, and appeals would be brought to circuit judges (who traveled the land), and then eventually to the High Court, which dwelt in Lenderula. The land was ruled not so much by laws, as by precedent.

Judges had power, but the true stars of the organization were the barristers, whose arguments could sway the courts. Barristers eventually became judges.

Lenderula once inhabited the pass that Evermoon currently fills. It was on the same day that Ferwe The Young was born (12.2.1.0) that a shooting star fell out of the sky, and demolished Lenderula, as Gaz the Dark predicted. This foul omen was interpreted as a disfavor of the gods, most specifically Gosh The Weaver.

Some of the most fervent worshipers of Vershethtorilon latched on to this interpretation, and created the Order of the Silver Crescent, claiming the site of Lenderula and rebuilding. It was after they finished rebuilding that they got the taste of conquest, and took the entire mountains over the next Epoch.

The only remaining evidence of Lenderula is the Tower of the Lost Sigil. It still stands, albeit it leans now away from the city, and the side of the tower which faced the epicenter of the damage is scorched with an epic black ash. The unintelligible runes beneath the ash are what gives the tower its name. Rumors say that studying these star-blasted sigils have given the scholars of the Tower a new understanding, even helped them develop a new school of magic.
