This open area is used to host public executions. The execution device, such as a headsman’s block or gallows, occupies a dais in the yard’s center. Surrounding it are viewing galleries for guests of assorted status and plenty of standing room for lower-class rabble. Gibbets or pikes around the yard display the condemned, granting a +3 bonus on Intimidate checks within the settlement to whoever publicly ordered the execution.
