Way of the Walking Judge

The Walking Judges are an order of monks that have dedicated their lives to upholding the rule of law and bringing about public order. Walking judges bring peace and stability, hunt criminals and rebels, and serve their own higher cause. Often when the land has fallen in to chaos, it is the walking judges whose efforts have allowed the common people to live relatively normal lives.
