The Thieves of Waterdeep
"Black Robes" who dispense justice in Waterdeep
Twenty Six Magisters conduct the Common Courts of the City. At least three such officials are always on duty at the Castle, and during daylight hours there is also a Magister at each gate of the City. These “Black Robes” can pass sentence instantly, although most make sentences conditional on the supporting evidence of witnesses. They are always accompanied by a bodyguard of at least six members of the City Guard.
