The Freehold is a limited pinned action card in Dragon Age: The Last Court. It is continued from That Which is Not to be Spoken of, and unlocks The Martyr.

Description Edit

Your Weary Bailiff returns from The Kindly Knight's manor damp with sweat from his frantic ride. "The Elusive iconoclast was at his court! At her advice he has declared the manor a freehold, wherein no person is held in bondage to any other. A council of peasants advises him! They sit in judgment over cases criminal and civil. Every man calls every other 'Lord' in jest, and the women 'Lady' or 'Dame!' They have paid only a part of the taxes they owe, saying that the full amount was too burdensome.

"They have set these laws down in a writ, and ask for your seal to be set to it, confirming them in perpetuity!" He passes the document at you. It is written in a skilled hand. It uses words like 'liberty', 'equality' and 'mandate.' At the bottom, a seal bearing a candle-flame - the sign of the Iconoclast.

Available actions Edit
