Iberian Tribunal

From Project: Redcap

The Iberian Tribunal is the regional Tribunal covering the Iberian Peninsula south of the Pyrenees: most of what is today Spain and Portugal. It is bordered on the north by the Provençal Tribunal. It is one of the border Tribunals of the Order: to the south, across the Straits of Gibraltar, lies Muslim North Africa, which is outside the Order of Hermes altogether. See the Map of Mythic Europe

This book was written for Third Edition and fully describes the Tribunal. As of ArM5 it is no longer considered canonical but it may be of interest to some Troupes. It says there are ten covenants in the Tribunal, of which four are detailed and the other six are left to the troupe's imagination.

Past Edition Covenants[edit]

Barcelona Covenant, Duresca, Estáncia-es-Karida, and Jaferiya were detailed in Tribunals of Hermes: Iberia.
