I recall there's a state of legality where Nobles police themselves and cannot be accused by a commoner of lesser social status of a crime. (If you know the name I'd be happy to be reminded of it.) Does this apply in the Warhammer Fantasy setting?

It's been suggested to me that I am refering to High Justice versus Low Justice

    \$\begingroup\$ Just to clarify: are you asking about a specific region/race or the entire Warhammer Fantasy world? There are four playable races in the core rulebook alone, and each of those races handle nobility in vastly different ways. In addition, Nobles from the Empire will behave differently from nobles in Bretonnia, and the Norscans may have Kings and Jarls, but they wouldn't really be considered "nobles" by any "civilized" nation. I am prepared to type at length about Warhammer Fantasy lore, but before I write a 10,000 word essay I want to be sure I know what you're asking. \$\endgroup\$ – GreedyRadish Feb 4 at 8:04
