Regal RulesEdit

Only someone with Obarskyr blood may assume the crown. This means that, for example, Queen Filfaeril Obarskyr could not assume the crown.[2]

Maritime lawEdit

Cormyrian maritime law governs the activities of Cormyrian ships on the Sea of Fallen Stars. Captains of ships on which individuals commit crimes will usually imprison the individual in question in the ship's brig until making landfall in Cormyr where local authorities will deal with the case. Mutiny is usually a hanging offence, although there are a small number of cases in Cormyr where mutineers have been spared. Piracy is dealt with harshly: upon the first offence, the pirate has one hand cut off. Upon a subsequent offence, the pirate is put to death.[3] Fishermen must pay the local authorities for the right to fish in Cormyrian waters.[4]
