Feature: Legal System (or “Legal” System)
You have knowledge and contacts in a legal system – not necessarily the same as one that you previously served. For example, a criminal who turned Crown’s Evidence might have contacts among the city guard. You have an easier time getting that legal system to hold prisoners for a few days for later questioning, possibly bending regulations to do so. It may be necessary to put some effort into maintaining these relationships, of course. Open violations of the rules of that organization may sour your connections as well, though your knowledge of the system is unchanged.

Born in the Wild Coast city of Narwell in 575 CY, Baeric was apprenticed to a Thief-Taker when he was 12. His keen mind and quick reflexes were perfect for the job and he learned quickly. He even set up a small network of eyes and ears by the time he was 16, that reached all the way to Greyhawk city. It was through these eyes and ears that he discovered that a priest of Wee Jas was in fact an apostate and a Cambion in disguise. This discovery led to his master’s death and Baeric fleeing to Greyhawk for his life.
After four months of sleeping in hedges and ditches, Baeric met Merak, a cleric of St. Cuthbert and a member of the Billets, an Order among the priesthood dedicated to protecting the faithful. Merak saw potential in Baeric and took him on as an apprentice and after three months of study, sent him to the Free City to finish his training and be ordained a cleric.
