Score Description
0 Desolate, ruined land, ravaged by disaster, war, or simply abandoned. No defensible structures of any kind, and no infrastructure for moving troops. You have no fortifications whatsoever.

Law encompasses two things: the extent to which the smallfolk respect and fear you and the threat of bandits, brigands, raiders, and other ex- ternal and internal threats. Law is something your family must maintain, and if you don’t invest in keeping your realm safe, it could fall into chaos.
