Destrynions' Charter, 876 ACby Daniel Mayer
A life is worth another life.
In times of war, all participating parties remember the life's worth.
Torture is allowed on non-magic users only for retrieving the wanted information. Torture for fun is to be regarded as ignorance of this charter. Magic-users captured are considered first-class (noble) captives and have to be proposed for ransom. If declined, any measures may be taken.
Using mass-stealth magics is considered ignorance of #1 and #2. Any applicable warleader is considered common enemy of all parties signing this charter.
Usage of mass-teleporting or gates to move troops directly into places where the war is not supported, like peaceful cities e.g., is considered ignorance of #1 and #2. Any applicable warleader is considered common enemy of all parties signing this charter.
The standard Rules For Tactical Usage Of Magic are applicable.
Signed by the following ambassadors representative for their government, Thyatis Alphatia Glantri Vestland .....
Whatever the exact wording may be. Shouldn't there exist such a charter? Else Magicians like Bargle may had an easy way in conquering towns and hole regions... It has to be a deterrent like the nuclear bombs: Many have the ability to use it, but *if*, the own land is surely to be destroyed completely.
-> mass-destruction of non-troops or the really, really, really bad way to kill thousands of unaware troops (by placing invisible death clouds all around a fortress during night while at peaceful terms...) should be forbidden with the "hanging sword" of a real punch even by those having nothing to do with the war.
