Rougtero (a.k.a Red Dirt) is located in the south, central coastal region of the main island of Lojem. The land was originally given by the Elves to the refugees from Karfelon when the sea wall collapsed and the city was buried under the ocean in 10017. Since then, the city has grown and has become a major force in the economy of the Lojem region.
As of 10047, the city of Rougtero is run by a council body consisting of representatives from: each major temple, the merchant guild, the laborer guild, the service provider guild, the shipping/trading guild, the mage guild, and the adventurer guild. While some of these “guilds” do not formally exist, the groups represented are able to write their representative at any time with issues relating to the city. As of 10055, the following groups have members on the Council:
The Council has the responsibility for making laws in the city and providing the basic means of enforcement for these laws. All council activities are public knowledge and detailed records exist from various temples of their activities. Council meetings occur on at least a monthly basis and can be attended by anyone interested.
The following is the set of laws that have been adopted by the council and are being enforced throughout the city:
The punishments under the law vary, but are decided by a mediator with the offender and the victim, his family, or an appointed representative present. Standard punishments are fines, service by the offender to the victim, or death of the offender. The mediations are typically held at a temple building, although the council has authority to alter the mediation location. The punishment handed down by the mediator is somewhat influenced by the temple it is held in. For example, as of 10055, no death sentences have been handed down by a mediator at the temple of Isis.
To enforce the laws of the city, the council has set up seven patrols of at least three guards each throughout the city. They have also set up fourteen stations throughout the city that are run by the citizens where an individual can report a violation of the law. These stations have signaling devices to alert the guards on patrol. The council also has created a task force to investigate crimes that occur in the city.
