South Hall of Justice
Article written by Gerrin
The South Hall of Justice was a hall that was located in the southern area of Thorbardin and stood as the second line of defense. This hall had one level and was once used for government offices. The Ninth Road and Seventeenth Road left the hall while a transportation shaft connected the hall to the Great Hall of Audience.
The hall was surrounded by a 50 feet deep moat that was crossable only by a drawbridge. Also there was numerous arrow slits and bulwarks that allowed defenders a clear line of sight to fire on attackers. Inside the hall there is a great hall that was used to administer justice to criminals.
A large circular chamber that contained a domed roof was built in the hall and called the Temple of Stars. The dwarves then inserted diamonds that duplicated the patterns of Krynn's star constellations. The South Hall of Justice was destroyed during the Chaos War.
