|VII) Suspending new membership
It has been decreed with a vote of 8-0 this day
that the Great Lakes Alliance (GLA) will suspend all new membership of
guilds into the alliance until which time it has been decided that we have
fully organized to be able to handle the new members fairly. This
has been amended to allow further member guilds to join.
VIII) Justice Committee
Responsibilities of the committee would be to
insure problems are dealt with in a timely manner
and that judgments are both fair and carried
Valor is defined as bold determination in the
face of danger.
GLA path: No member of GLA is to leave another
member stranded in a fight without doing all he or she can to help. If
the need arises to retreat then the retreat must be sounded and an effort
get all members and their belongings off the
field of battle. Valor is not blind determination
so if a member decides to remain in the fight
after the retreat has been sounded then they are
on their own. Furthermore, if we see people of
the realm in need of our assistance we will do
all in our power to help them.
Spirituality is defined as the quality or fact
of being spiritual, defined as having to do with
the spirit or soul, as distinguished from physical
nature; pertaining to sacred matters;
GLA Path: This is an embodiment of all the virtues.
GLA members are to pledge their adherence
to the virtues as the "religion" of our alliance.
We are to do all we can to preserve the
beliefs. By committing to GLA you commit to virtue.
Sacrifice is defined as the surrender or destruction
of something valued for the sake of
something having a higher or more pressing claim.
GLA Path: We are to aid our brothers and sisters
when in need of our money, equipment, or time.
We will drop our own needs at a time of distress
to aid those in need. This does not mean to
help those that are lazy because we do not want
to promote slothful people. However, a newly
raised person needs clothing, food, and equipment.
A newbie needs guidance and our wisdom.
Our brothers and sisters need our time and commitment.
Justice is defined as the quality of being just;
righteousness; equitableness, or moral
GLA Path: Moral rightness is sometimes not UO
rightness with regard to flagging. No member of
GLA is to attack reds or grays merely for the
color they flag. We are to investigate the reason
for their color and if necessary exact justice
to what is moral. We are to aid those attacked by
murderers, robbed by thieves, or scammed by the
dishonest in serving justice. Justice is not
revenge, but a rendering of judgment for a wrong.
Once the new patch comes for flagging there
will be no reason to ever attack a blue except
in extreme circumstances i.e. house looting after
the fact or attempts to steal your boat. Words
are not reason enough for a fight.
