Thank you for your reply. I had not realized Springdale appointed you as Herald. However, your post still does not answer my question, as I predicted. I found your explanation for the disregard of your city's laws to be quite amusing. The tacked on insult made it even more enjoyable for me.
I cannot decide which is more telling of Springdale's leadership - That none of the barons answered a simple question directed at them or that they appointed you to answer for them.
