I. On the position of Grandmaster: The office of Grandmaster is held permanently until retirement from the position or when removed by a majority vote from the Sovereign Council. Should the Grandmaster retire, he may appoint a candidate as successor. The Sovereign Council can approve this candidate or remove any candidate from election by way of a majority vote and elect a new Grandmaster.


II. On the Sovereign Council: The Sovereign Council is a consultative body for discussing the political, legislative and international policies of the Order and other general aspects regarding the functioning of the Order. Together with the Grandmaster, this Council must provide practical ideas and solutions for the alliance, create new legislature to ensure effectiveness, and vote on these for consultative purposes.

In the event of treaty proposals, charter amendments or declarations of war there must be a majority vote from the Council before the motion can pass.


III. On the Councilmembers: All members of the first class, the master knights, and the second class, professed knights, have a seat in the Sovereign Council. Some of the council members may have specific duties that put them in charge of certain departments or sections of the Order. Their titles and responsibilities vary and may be altered at the discretion of the Grandmaster. The Carta Gubernatio deals with the various positions and responsibilities.


V. On the Assembly: All members of the Order have an automatic seat in the Assembly unless their rights have been revoked by the Magisterial Court. The members of the Assembly entitled to vote in the election of a representative, must act personally and may not appoint any representatives, or delegates or proxies or vote by letter.

VII. On Expulsions: The expulsion of members from the Order must be investigated by the Magistrate. He is in charge of the Magisterial Court and decides if there is enough evidence to proceed with the expulsion. If the Magistrate decides there is enough evidence to warrant expulsion, a poll will be posted in which the Assembly can vote. A member is expelled if the poll shows a majority vote in favour of expulsion. Members that would be expelled for Security reasons may be removed with the affirmation of the Grandmaster or Magistrate.


VIII. On Resigning: Members who resign from the Order must repay all debts before departing. Resignations during official wars will place that nation under consideration for ZI by the Council and Grandmaster.

Minor ChartersEdit

WergildEdit

Those who join become a part of the Order with their blood. They become part of a brotherhood. The Order does what it can to train and support every member, and allows every applicant to become a part of something bigger. The bank also sends out massive amounts of aid to each new member to grow their nations to proper strength. The Order will not be a temporary haven or place to hang idle for the bored and troubled individuals on bob. In order to counter the entrance of 'bad blood' to the alliance we have created this charter regarding membership, and the introduction of Wergild, Blood Money, as part of the terms of membership.
