Section.2.
This is where the rules about inter-Imperial conflict will go... something I really wasn't prepared to touch on without the rest of the council readily available for input... (Proposition of Inter Imperial Conflict) Inter-Imperial Conflict may be initiated by the Councilors of the Originating Organization (Organization A), against another Member Organization of the Nation (Organization B), upon the informing of a Third Organization's Councilors (Organization C). The Third Organization will inform only Organization B of the Intended Aggression by Organization A. Organizations A and B are prohibited from informing other Organizations of the Nation of said Conflict. Any attack committed by Organizations A or B in the presence of another Organization's Councilors or Guild Officers, to be defined as no more than 3 CHARACTERS, (Except Organization C), will be subject to, "Breaking the Laws of the Charter," and their Votes will be removed for one week. If both Organization A and B are observed in combat, resulting in the death of a member of Organization A or B, by a Councilor of any other organization within the Nation (Except for Organization C), then both Organizations will have their Votes Stripped for one week. The Conflict may last no longer than one week from acknowledgement of a Councilor from Organization C. Councilors of Organization C will act as judges of the Conflict, awarding to the Victor of the Conflict one Vote of the Councilor from the losing Organization. In the cases of Draws, or Ties, a single vote of the Aggressing Organization (Organization A) is to be given to the defending Organization (Organization B). In cases of non-activity being the deciding factor of Victory, no votes will change hands. Organization C is required to present their judgement of Victory to the Archmage at the beggining of the Council Session where the Votes will change hands. No other Organizations may participate in the Conflict, nor may the Judging Organization (Organization C) participate in Conflict with another Organization during this time. Organization C may elect to judge other conflicts, at their discretion, and may still bear witness against other conflicts not related to Organization A or B. Organization A or B must inform other Attacking Organization's Judges that they are currently involved in a conflict, at which point, those judges must delay the future conflict one week. Those not wishing to participate in the Conflict must declare submission to the attacking Guild, publicly, at the next Council Meeting, but will not lose any Votes. Those who wish to declare resignation of a Conflict will still lose their Vote.

Section.3.
Clause 1: Any encroachment by an outside force onto the soil of an Imperial territory will be met with force. Any parties of those opposing forces obtained as prisoners of war will be brought immediately to the Archmage in the city of the Shadow Realm for assigned punishment and will be detained in the Shadow Realm prison.

Article.4. Amendments
At any time if the majority of the Council deems it necessary, amendments will be added to this charter, or amendments rescinding previous sections or amendments of this charter, by a three-fourths majority vote of the council. This document must be met with initial Unanimous Confirmation of the pre-existing Council of Shadows, in order to be activated and considered within effect.

Article.5. Recognition of Dieties
This document came from Jackal, and was amended by Shadow Realm Council, in the name of Vicious the Eternal. Vicious the Eternal is the greatest being known to exist in the Universe. It is under Vicious that the other Gods may thrive.

Clause 1: Vicious is the cheif god with which a majority of the Shadow Realm follow.

Clause 1a: Lloth is the goddess of Drow and Spider kind.

Clause 1b: Vikus is False, Vikus is not considered by this charter as a god or goddess of any power. This False god may still have a few followers within the Shadow Realm but is NOT recognized as a Diety of any kind.
