The Covenant of the Order of the Sword
Our world is on fire. Each of us should pour some water, no matter how little, to extinguish whatever one can without waiting for the others.
In The Name Of The Ancestors
O People: Out of the midst of troubles and the sea of suffering, out of the palpitations of faithful hearts and cleansed arms; out of the sense of duty, and in response to the Ancestors’ command, the call has gone out rallying people together, leading them to have determined will in order to fulfil their role in life, to overcome all obstacles, and surmount the difficulties on the way. Constant preparation has continued and so has the readiness to sacrifice life and all that is precious for the sake of our people.
Thus it was that the nucleus was formed and started to pave its way through the tempestuous sea of hopes and expectations, of wishes and yearnings, of troubles and obstacles, of pain and challenges, both inside and outside.
When the idea was ripe, the seed grew and the plant struck root in the soil of reality, away from passing emotions, and hateful haste. The Order of the Sword emerged to carry out its role through striving for the sake of our people, its arms intertwined with those of all the fighters for the liberation of Shartak. The spirits of its fighters meet with the spirits of all the fighters who have sacrificed their lives on the soil of Shartak.
This Covenant of the Order of the Sword, clarifies its picture, reveals its identity, outlines its stand, explains its aims, speaks about its hopes, and calls for its support, adoption and joining its ranks. Our struggle against the invaders is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Order is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this fair island, until the enemy is vanquished and our victory is realised.
Goals of the Order
The Order is sworn to protect the peoples of Shartak from the encroachment of the Outsiders, and will fight tirelessly to defend our settlements and our sacred lands from their depredations. We will resist with force of arms the actions of groups who attack our people, our custom, or our land. We will fall with almighty force upon those who would prey upon our people, and drive them back into the sea.
Identify Friend or Foe Policy
The society of the invaders is a society of war, of conflict and destruction. We have seen already that the Outsiders cannot even live in harmony with their own people, or with the land upon which they depend. And it is this militarism that drives them to our villages, their eyes filled with greed and murder. If we are to win this war, we must have no doubt that there are no friendly outsiders; the enemy do not have civilians. Every outsider, by their very prescence on our sacred isle, condones and supports the illegal occupation of our ancestral lands. The states of Durham, Derby and York, and the dystopian chaos that is the 'shipwreck' must be destroyed, they must be destroyed utterly, and they must be destroyed without mercy.
