I noticed something just outside of Ratchet.
In this picture you see the entrance to Ratchet there on the left and a random little house on the hill on the right. And yes, strangely in front of the house there is a little gallows.
Most interestingly is it's small size. It appears to be meant for the goblins. To check, I had my new shaman stand in one.
He must've thought he was tall enough too because he agreed. Sure enough, the rope is hung too low for someone like him. He could just stand with his feet straddling the hole and suffer no ill fate. So it appears the goblins keep their own law.
Then again, I'm not sure I've ever seen a gnome in Ratchet...
Just noticed something in Gadgetzan:
