This is disallowed should the freedom be abused for the sole purpose of inciting havoc, such as shouting ‘fire’ in a crowded building when there is no fire present. 1-a) This is also disallowed should the freedom be abused for the purpose of racism of any kind, whether it be against Dwarves, Elves, or Humans. 1-b) This is also disallowed in the event of verbal harassment of a citizen or council member of Talon's Port. 1-c) Should somebody physically retaliate for something such as verbal harassment, both sides will be investigated and a decision will be made by the militia, or by extent, the council, on whether or not the retaliation was justified. 1-d) Should the retaliation be declared unjust, punishment will be given to the one who retaliated based on the punishment in the respective clause of the lawbook. For example, should somebody be yelled at in the street and see it as a cause to stab the one who was yelling, this may be declared unjust and the one who retaliated would be punished in accordance to the laws of assault or attempted murder. 2. Citizens of Talon’s Port are not allowed to falsely and knowingly defame a person.

For example, if somebody were to enter a private residence that had a door open, and the owner requested that the person leave, failure to comply gives the owner a right to contact the Talon's Port Militia to forcibly remove the person from the property, or remove the trespasser themselves without legal repercussion. 5-b) Businesses still count as private property despite being publicly used. If a business owner asks a citizen to leave their property for any non-discriminatory reason, the same rights apply to the owner of the business. 6. Destruction of private or public property within the city of Talon's Port is disallowed, and will be met with a fine that is determined by the estimate of damage caused in minas doubled.

(4) Magic Laws 1. Magic is legal within Talon’s Port, given that it is not used in a way which violates any laws. 2. Property owners have a right to create their own rules of casting within the property (within reasonable and fair use), though they cannot deny service to somebody for the sole reason that they use magic. 3. For a magic user to properly cast and use magic freely within the port, a license must be in possession, this one handed over by the authorities of the magic department of Talon’s Port. To fail following this rule will result in payment of a fee alongside a blacklisting from any and all magical work within Talon’s Port. A different license is required for the use of the Obelisk and for the access to educational activities. 4. Dark arts are not allowed within Talon’s Port, such practices can be punishable with both banishment and death penalty. Same as the wrong use of any other common art. 5.

To participate in the education/training of magical arts within the nation is required to be in possession of a license (Read Magic law section 3). If not, any action within the city and it’s magical artifacts for education and any other purpose will result in punishment and the payment of a fee. 8. The location and access to the Talon’s Port Voidal Obelisk is only to be given to those with a license and authorization for such. If someone without license or authorization for learning is found within the Obelisk chambers, they shall be given a fee to pay. 9. The illegal trading/use of enchanted objects will result in the confiscation of said magical artifacts and the payment of a fee. To avoid this, one must register said items under the name of the owner and license to the Talon’s Port Magical Department. 10. False advertisement of any magical art, manipulation via use of magic arts and/or selling of non-authorized magic related objects/arts will result in both blacklisting and banishment. 11. To lie about the possession of an art or to provide half truths about both knowledge and progress within that mentioned art will result in a blacklist and/or removal of any magical license. 12. Alchemy, Housemagery, Voidal arts and Shamanism, etc, all fall under the Talon’s Port Magical Department authority, all of them require a license and authorization. To not follow this rule will result in blacklisting. 13. Seeing as Housemagery is mostly daily-use focused than combat, it shall be allowed to be used within one’s home without need of supervision and/or license. Yet, any other magic or art shall be informed to the Talon’s Port Magical Department for it’s use. A license will not be required for the use within one’s home, as previously stated, but it is needed for the mage to inform the Department of any ability to avoid any chaos/misuse related to Magical Arts. 14. A magical art user’s identity and abilities shall be kept secret and/or restrained from outsiders to avoid both harassment and mage hunting. A mage itself is free to reveal its own identity and abilities to other under its own free will, but is the Talon’s Port Magical Department’s duty to keep that information secret from the public. Any worker of said branch failing to comply to this rule shall be removed of its position and/or punished further by the proper authorities. This, of course, includes the payment of a fee. 15. The possession of any magic related group, sect or the like without the overseeing and authorization of the proper authorities will result in blacklist, dissolving of said group within the nation and the payment of a fee. 16. The use and trading of any Alchemy related object shall be overseen and authorized by the Department. Any lab, stall and/or greenhouse shall be authorized by the same branch as well. To not follow this rule will result in the right punishment, this one most likely a blacklist or a fee. 17. Magic related conflicts between factions are not to be accepted within Talon’s Port. Druids may not attack Voidal mages nor vice versa, same rule applies to Paladins and Azdrazi. If a party attacks the other, the attacker is to be punished by the council and the victim may have a word upon the punishment to be delivered. This however, is just to avoid aggression and the hunt of individuals out of personal gain. (5) Crime Laws 1.

  6. As issued 10th of The Sun's Smile, 4 2A MILITARY FINANCIAL ALLOCATION ACT It is the sovereign duty of the Grand Council to guarantee that the Legion of Urguan is not only active but properly equipped. In the past, this duty has been left to the oversight of the Grand Merchant and the Grand King, however, those charged with the upkeep of the Legion have neglected their duties, placing the burden upon the Grand Marshal and his officers. This dereliction of responsibility was successful in the past only because of the abundance of wealth that the Grand Kingdom enjoyed. Yet in recent times, a lack of funds has been felt throughout the continent, leaving the Legion struggling to acquire sufficient capital to support its infrastructure. Thus, we now find it necessary to form a proper budget for the Legion, allowing the Grand Marshal and his officers the appropriate funds required to fulfill their obligations both to protect the Kingdom during times of peace and to ready the military for any future conflicts. SECTION I - THE LEGION BUDGET The pay scale for the Legion may only be adjusted through the Grand Council of Urguan, although the Grand Marshal may pay bonuses to legionnaires directly from the Legion Reserve. The payment of each member is based on their rank, and the pay will be as follows: Grand Marshal: N/A Commander: N/A Legate: 24 Minae Pridebearer: 20 Minae Longbeard: 16 Minae Ironbreaker: 12 Minae Stoneguard: 8 Minae Grunt: 4 Minae Based on the pay scales outlined, the Legion of Urguan shall receive funds from the Treasury of the Grand Kingdom. The number of funds allotted to the Legion will be revised on a biennial (every two years) basis, to account for any growth in the legion. The redefining of the Budget is to be a collective effort between the Grand Merchant and the Grand Marshal. SECTION II - THE LEGION RESERVE It has always been the nature of the Legion that those who work, receive compensation, and those who do not work will not receive compensation. As a result, there may be an excess of funds at the end of some years. Thus we propose a Legion Reserve, governed by the following regulations: The Legion Reserve is to be controlled directly by the Grand Marshal and is to be dispensed at his discretion, so long as it is to benefit the Legion. Examples of Proper dispensation of funds include, but are not limited to: The payment of new legionnaires. The acquisition of arms and armor. The payment of bonuses to legionnaires that excel in their service. The payment of Legion sponsored events. The payment required to maintain the Legion of Urguan Mission System. This reserve is limited to a maximum of 2,000 minae but it may be raised through the will of the Grand Council. Any surplus mina will be remitted directly to the Kingdom. Donations made directly to the Legion will also go directly into this reserve and thus be under the purview of the minae limit. SECTION III - STATUTES & REVISALS This bill reaffirms the Grand King’s innate sole authority over the Legion. The Grand King may at choice reject the spending of the Legion Reserve. Furthermore, in order to check the powers granted to the Grand Marshal and the Legion by this document. The Grand King, as well as the Grand Merchant, will be granted the power to audit The Legion Budget and Legion Reserve at any time. Upon their request, the Grand Marshal will be required to provide detailed financial documents that show when and how the Legion’s Funds are being utilized. If some discrepancy is found in these documents, the Grand Marshal will be held legally accountable and will be investigated for fraud. Furthermore, if implemented, any section of this proposal is subject to change through a simple majority vote of the Grand Council. Such proposals may include a change to legion payscale, adjusted regulation of the Legion Reserve, implementation of additional oversight, etc. Jórvin son of Kazrin, of the Elder Clan of Starbreaker, Grand King of Urguan’s Folk, Clan-Lord of Gotrek’s Folk, Lord of Kal'Darakaan, Tal'Sjorvath, and Kal’Evraal, Bane of the Neverborn, Slayer of Gazardiael and Savior of the Realm, Founding Member of the Council of the Fourth Grand Kingdom of Urguan, Beloved by the Brathmordakin, Keeper of the Great Book of Grudges.
