Know this all ye peoples…

 

We are the Steppe Alliance

And we do declare:

We are the Keepers of the Balance, we see the good in that which is evil, and the evil in that which is good. We pledge ourselves to neither side, but vow instead to preserve the balance that exists between the two.

We are the Preservers of the Cycle, and vow that all the abominable creatures who are outside the natural Cycle will be destroyed.

We are Guardians of the Land, and understand that to truly free the land from tyranny you must first free the spirit of its people.

 

Lore

All brothers and sisters of the Steppe Alliance do pledge:

 

Tenets of Hospitality

A visitor to your home should always be greeted as a brother, with refreshment and sustenance, in honour of their journey to reach you.

By accepting hospitality your visitor accepts the status of brother to all Steppe while within your home. All brothers must honour them as such.

If the visitor takes any aggressive action against you or anyone that you have called a brother, they do so at the forfeit of their own life.

 

Table

To ensure that all views are heard, the Steppe Alliance shall choose a brother or sister to be the Voice of the People. The Voice of the People shall wield the Sword of Veto, giving them the deciding vote at Table.

When brothers and sisters of the Steppe gather to share views and information, or to decide upon a course of action, this is known as Table.

 

Paths and Voices

There are brothers and sisters of the Steppe Alliance who come to the fore when the enemy is in sight, whose blades are ever ready and whose courage is never in question. They follow the Path of the Warrior. Brothers and sisters on this path choose a Voice of Action to ensure their voices are always heard.

There are brothers and sisters of the Steppe Alliance whose first thought is for their brothers and sisters, who look after their brother’s health and who use their blades to protect our families. They follow the Path of the Guardian. Brothers and sisters on this path choose a Voice of Caution to ensure their voices are always heard.

There are brothers and sisters of the Steppe Alliance who will hunt down knowledge like prey, who enjoy the puzzles that life throws at them and who would rather use their minds than their blades to fight the enemy. They follow the Path of the Wise. Brothers and sisters on this path choose a Voice of Reason to ensure their voices are always heard.

The Steppe Alliance choose a Voice of the Steppe who we entrust to speak with the voice of all of the Steppe. They are the one chosen to ensure that the will of their brothers and sisters is enacted.


We agree to uphold these ideals, regardless of the path we choose to tread.

Those who make their mark below declare themselves to be the Steppe Alliance:
