Shadows of the Moon
Persons legally bearing weapons must wear peacestrings about their sword hilts (to prevent quick unsheathing). These strings are colored and tasseled cords, and it is an art to tie them in ornate knots. The best of such knots appear complicated, but can be undone with a single tug to free the weapon. If the Purple Dragons spot anyone bearing weapons that aren’t peace-bonded, they stop such individuals and inform them of Cormyr’s “custom.” Persistent violators are imprisoned and their goods seized.
