The Anti-Vigilante Act

- 10th of The Deep Cold, 1751 -

 

It has come to the attention of the Okarir’tir that many have sought to enforce justice outside of their position, outside of the law of the Silver State. To redress this, the Okarir’tir has sought to enshrine into law the current procedure for dealing with suspected enemies of elcihi.

 


 

 

SECTION I: The employment of sillumiran force without the express permission of the Okarir’tir

 

The Sillumiran cannot be ordered about by non-sillumiran without undergoing the proper procedure. In order for another Okarir or citizen to be entitled to give commands to Sillumir, they must first obtain a written document from the Okarir’tir giving clear permission and stating a justification. If a citizen may require this, they must consult the Okarir’tir and provide sufficient evidence as to why they may be granted this privilege. 

 

Examples include:

- Threat to one's well being: If there is sufficient grounds to suspect the individual in question is at risk from harassment and abuse, they may be given special protection by any and all Sillumir present.

- A requirement to lead an exhibition outside of the walls where the Okarir’tir cannot be present, this can include providing protection for diplomatic talks. 

- Pariran’tir may call upon sillumir during an ongoing trial to maintain order, they have this right already granted to them unless stated otherwise by the Okarir’tir.  

 


 

 

SECTION II: Dealing with Dark Mages and other nefarious beings

 

Creatures of darkness attempt to threaten the very existence of Haelun’or. However, the chances of one of our blessed citizens being amongst them is highly unlikely in most cases. As such, there is a procedure one must follow to avoid violation of Article 1 of The Obvious Laws. In order for a case to be considered there must be hard proof, such as evidence of the individual acting against the interests of Haelun’or. There are Three Signs that are used to determine if the individual in question is not above suspicion, this includes violent acts (harming another Mali‘thill), liberal values (arguing against purity) and suspicious activity (socialising with strange, masked individuals). 

 

In the event of a citizen claiming to have witnessed the practice of dark magic from another Mali’thill, they shall be expected to offer a full testimony which must include other witnesses to call upon to validate the story and have evidence of the accused acting in line with the Three Signs.

If the Okarir’tir deems the case brought before him as worthy of further scrutiny he may allow a formal investigation, but this can only be conducted by the Sillumir with his express permission. This is to ensure no vigilantism takes place in order to prevent violations of Article 1 of The Obvious Laws and also so proper measures are taken prior to a direct intervention. For it must be known that dark mages are powerful individuals capable of causing significant destruction if not approached with care. 

 

When the accused is apprehended, they shall be interrogated with the supervision of the Okarir’tir. If after interrogation Elokarir’tir deems the individual highly likely of being a practitioner of dark magic, they shall refer them to a Purity Trial.

 

Let it be known that under no circumstances will the presence of Paladins be required and to invite their practices into Haelun’or would be in violation of Article 3 of The Obvious Laws. They seek only to undermine Silver Law and the diligence of the Okarir’tir.

Baelithar Calith read the missive from his new home far from the Silver City and tosses it into the fire. "Pharisaios, the whole lot of them. Their naiveté in assuming that because the people are Mali'thill, that they are innocent, shows that my treatise is completely correct. This whole state will rot from within if someone does not step up. The state impedes our Progress and ruins our Health. Fie to them!"

A missive is posted onto the noticeboard in Haelun’or’s square, nailed over a copy proclaiming the recent act. It read the following in an elegant, cursive script.

 

Woe upon we blessed sons and daughters of Larihei - we children of silver. I weep for us, I weep for our purity, polluted from within by the poison sown by the malignant hands of dark mages and their sympathizers. A shadow creeps over the Silver City; the selfsame curse of Izalith that had brought our nation low twicefold, and yet so do the 'blessed' guardians of the Maehr'sae Hiylun'ehya sleep, favoring lethargy and nepotism over the righteous path. Our Okarir’tir is but a mouthpiece for the far-reaching tendrils of Gehenna, be warned and beware, for none but they themselves undermine our sacred laws and with this piece of legislation do they only endeavor to protect those who tug the marionette’s strings from harms way. We stand for the downfall of one guardian of silver, flawed as he may be for his methods and callous hand. Why then do we stand for the putrid stench of a Shade to remain welcomed behind our walls of silver? Beware the puppetmaster. Beware Nerithil Valarieth. Beware those ‘ata who enable him to spread his poison.

Haskir duplicates a copy of Valens Ith’ael’s missive. ”Nice.”

Storm snorts at the missive, taking note that he not only conducted the interviews and investigations during the absence of the Okarir’tir, but that he also gave the go-ahead for the last arrest of a shade, which turned out successful. Yet now, all of a sudden, they have to wait for the Okarir’tir to oversee every step of the process 

“Seems horribly inefficient. Justice does not deliberate, it does not wait, it does not halt. Most of the last shade investigation took place when the Okarir’tir was absent. This will only serve to hamper progress in removing them, thereby endangering the state.” He remarks, before balling up his copy of the missive, tossing it in the fire ”What an inconvenient power grab.”
