Law is a setup of behests that is made and wielded by rikeships or folks to righten behavior. It has been bewritten as a lore. Rightfulness is sometimes called the main end of the law, but there are sundry thoughtlays as to the working of law in people; some believe that it is nothing more than a strong-armed furthering of might and will. Law can be made by a lawmaker, whether one or many. Such lawmaking yields a belawing. Law can also be set forth by a foresitter, or by a deemer. The high law of a land is an overlaw, as in the Overlaw of the Banded Folkdoms. The law shapes mootmanship, wealthdom and trade, and eretide in manifold ways. It also works as a middleman between bickering men.

There are sundry kinds of law. One kind of splitting is that between worshipful and worldly law. Worshipful law, such as the Ten Behestments and Muslim liefhood, deals with the ghostly side of man. It rightens him in a sidely way, dealing with his goodness and uprightness as he sets his sights on Heaven. In the Abrahamish worships, God is the highest lawmaker. Worldly law formiddles the dealings between men, and between men and the folkdom or rikeship. Worldly law also rightens man's behavior, but it comes from the rikeship or the folk, which stakes headship over the folkdom and brings tidiness thereto.

In worldly law, there is a thoughtlayish split between openly law and onelepy law. Openly law is the setup of behests between man and the rikeship; for byspel, overlawful law, crookish law, and tithing law are kinds of openly law. Meanwhile, onelepy law handles the dealings between man and man. Men can bring lawful dealings with one another either willfully or unwillfully. Willfully, such lawful dealings can be brought about through writdeals; but unwillfully, if a man harm another, he is bound to give back what he has taken through the law of wrongs. Lastly, onelepy law oversees the law of owndom, which sets forth man's rights to things.

Another great splitting, known through eretide, is the split between folklaw and meanlaw. The folklaw springs from the wealth of Romish law in olden times. The Romish lawloremen wrote many bulky books on the law of their land, and that setup became the grounds for the law of Napoleon Bonaparte's Folkish Lawbook, first handed down in 1804 in Frankric. The body of folklaw is found in one writing, much like a Folkish Lawbook, which spells out the law in sheer, broad behests which can be understood by all. Much of the world now follows the framework of the folklaw.

Against this, however, comes the sundry way of the meanlaw. The behests of the meanlaw were unfolded over time in England by deemers. King Henry II is said to have begun the meanlaw in his King's Court, when he set forth writs whereby a asker could bring a lawseeking against the answerer for set kinds of harm done to him. As the deemers heard befallings and made deemings, they set forth the way they reckoned the deeming, founded on the haps of the befalling. The deemer's reckoning would then gain clout and become a forerunning, which, over time, yielded behests of law.
