A paper nailed to a majority of the news posts threw out the city

Come one come all to the king's "Open Court"!

Ever have a problem with different people that you think the king needs to fix? ever have
an idea on how to run our little city that your just dying to have heard? Ever just want to
meet Lord Antidas himself and ask a question? well now you can, every Thursday from sun
rise to sun set come to the Royal Court and have your saying heard by the noble court and
the Lord him self!

Note a small fee of a 1/4 bronze pieces is applied to enter the royal court
