Citizens of Berphaunt residing in Jericho,
Our Council of Nobles has decreed in their wisdom that there shall be two factions created; one for those who follow the paths of the Gods, and one for those who follow the paths of the Dragons. This is meant to alleviate our legal system of those who would raise the needs of their devotions to their God or Dragon to a level that would jeopardize their good standing with local law enforcement.
The Camp known as Silverwatch shall be the appointed location for those who would serve the Dragons, and the Camp known as The Monastery shall likewise harbour those who serve the Gods.
A representative shall arrive to oversee each faction and be given the rights to make residence at the appropriate camp. You shall expect them at the next holding of the Noble Court.
Each faction shall welcome any follower, regardless of which Dragon or God they choose to devote their energies to. Membership in one of these factions is certain to garner the attention of your God or Dragon, their Champions, and their teachings. We are certain you may find your way to recognition in other ways, but not with such ease as it were.
Each camp will design and provide an identifying symbol to be worn in plain sight at all times to identify their members. Members will be recorded in a ledger for all to see which will indicate their name, race, and which camp they have joined.
In order to join one of these factions, one must have the approval of at least two of our most prestigious Nobles. A public petition made in person at Noble Court must be made in order to leave a faction once joined.
It has also been decreed that the following conditions rest upon both factions in equal measure. These conditions are iron clad and are in addition or exception to the laws which fall upon every citizen or visitor to these lands whilst in Jericho or abroad.
– No member of a faction may act in an unlawful manner towards a member of the same faction.
– No member of a faction may act in an unlawful manner towards a citizen who is not a member of a faction.
– No citizen may act in an unlawful manner towards any members of either faction.
– Any member of one of these camps who is found to be concealing or not wearing their identifying symbol will be charged with the High Crime of Subverting the will of Berphaunt.
Any unlawful act of any kind may be taken by a member of either faction if and only if visited upon a member of the opposing faction.
By order of The Kingdom of Berphaunt and His Majesty King Louis
On this day May 21 in the year of 2257
Does this come to pass into Law
Addendum – Living arrangements for the Faction Camps
The Monastery and Silverwatch are to be considered the Faction Camps.
If you join a faction, you may live in the Faction Camp based on the faction you join. You are not required to live in this Faction Camp. That is your choice.
If you do not join a faction, you CANNOT permanently live in either Faction Camp. You may visit, you may spend time there, but you cannot reside there or otherwise call it home.
The Monastery and Silverwatch are going to have a protective barrier raised around them by the Conclave. This barrier will also function as a resurrection circle for anyone who has joined that specific Faction Camp. It will also function like a standard circle of power – faction members will be invested and be able to recognize non-camp members inside. This barrier will encompass the entire camp area and is intended to give Faction members a safe place to live and sleep.
Citizens of Jericho.
Now that we have gotten the camps for sanctioned combat up and running, there are a few reminders for everyone.
All members are required to ensure the camp symbols they were are large enough and easy enough to view, even from a distance.
Both camps must ensure that there are extra armbands, sashes, tabards, what have you on the off chance a member of the camp losing their symbol during a hectic battle.
Any member who loses their armband, sash, tabard, what have you, MUST get it replaced with all due haste. Any member found dallying without the symbol will face the fullest repercussions.
To further drive home the point of size: the symbol being worn and the means by which it is worn MUST be large and clear enough to be easily noticed at a distance.
