From Project: Redcap
The Levant Tribunal is the Regional Tribunal covering the Crusader States in Asia Minor: Antioch, Jerusalem, and Tripoli, as well as the adjacent lands such as Syria, Edessa, and Egypt. It is a borderland of the order, adjacent only to the Thebes Tribunal to the northwest. Lands to the east and South are outside the territory of the Order of Hermes.
