Judgment Square is the central square, at the very heart of Tai-tastigon. It appears to actually be round in shape, not square.[1] At its center is the Mercy Seat, where criminals convicted of the most heinous crimes are publicly tortured and executed.[2][3]

On a more peaceful note, on Mid-Winter's Day the apotheosis of the Frost King was held in Judgment Square.[4] During their meetings, the Archiem of Skyrr and King of Metalondar meet in Judgment Square.[5]

  2. God Stalk, Book I: Tatters of Dusk, "Chapter 3: Into the Labyrinth" — "by the time she reached Judgment Square, that vast open area with the Mercy Seat at its center."
  3. God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 9: A Matter of Honor" — "Judgment Square lay sleek in the moonlight. The stalls that had freckled its surface by midday were gone now and their owners with them, leaving the great, triangular flagstones to wind-whirled debris and the small group gathered in front of the Mercy Seat. The Master of Mercy was arguing with four guardsmen while his assistant crouched behind him, tending a brazier whose coals sparkled fitfully."
  4. God Stalk, Book II: Crown of Nights, "Chapter 6: Water Flow, Fire Leap" — "Mid-Winter's Day arrived, cool and clear. Jame, Dally, and Canden went to Judgment Square to see the apotheosis of the Frost King,"
  5. God Stalk, Book III: Shroud of Days, "Chapter 12: A Flame Rising" — "the music of trumpets and tabors in Judgment Square where the Archiem of Skyrr and King Sellik XXI of Metalondar were meeting in a blaze of pageantry."
