The courthouse of Adornas(e)

Adornas is a small town, but Rohan takes pride in ensuring its laws are enforced throughout its realm. This is the local courthouse. It is a simple affair, with plain wooden tables and chairs. The table at the far end of the room from the door is set upon a pedestal, elevating the person who sits at it--you assume that would be the judge. A plaque on the wall near the door provides brief instructions on the legal system.
The east door is closed.
The only obvious exit is east.
