In Cormyr, it’s not just advisable to obtain a charter—it’s the law.
The kingdom keeps close tabs on those who travel the countryside bearing arms and who seemingly have no higher purpose than to seek adventure. Without a charter, adventurers can be apprehended by any force representing the king, including the Purple Dragons and local militia.
A charter can be obtained through the Lord Commander of Castle High Horn, the Warden of the Eastern Marches in Castle Crag, or the Lord High Marshal at the Royal Court in Suzail. Basic charters have an annual cost of 25 gp but are not always a guarantee of free passage, since they can be forged fairly easily. Hand-lettered, gold-foil charters personally signed by Cormyr’s ruler cost 1,000 gp, with an annual renewal fee of 300 gp.
