The Lawspeaker is one who either adjudicates disputes or advises chieftains and the like. of course, in our modern society the lawspeakers have become the leaders. Ernalda the Leader (EtheL) would be a chieftain or god-talker or ring member in their own right.

The Orlanthi womenfolk seem to practical and level headded for such sillynesses as Lawspeakers. They make sure what needs to be done gets done -- often with disasterous consequences.
