==Overview==
 +
The three declarations of [[#Declaration of Amity|amity]], [[#Declaration of Enmity|enmity]], and [[#Declaration of Neutrality|neutrality]] are similar in nature. They are a critical tool used by the [[Imperial Conclave]] to interact with the [[eternal|eternals]], the supernatural denizens that inhabit the six magical realms. They allow the Conclave to declare that a specific eternal (or a defined group of eternals) is an ally or enemy of the Empire, or remove one of those designations and restore the eternal to neutrality.
  
Amity or Emnity towards an Eternal is considered to apply to all that Eternal's Heralds. The Conclave may also occasionally extend amity or emnity towards a specific herald without changing the designation of other heralds or the patron eternal.
+
More than political and legal tools, these declarations have a known magical effect. Eternals who are subject to one of these declarations find their ability to interact with the empire changes to reflect the Conclave's decision. An eternal that has amity for example finds it easier to dispatch heralds and wield its supernatural power within the bounds of the Empire, while one that has enmity finds it significantly harder to perform these actions.
  
==Amity==
+
The [[archmage]] power of [[archmage#Plenipotentiary|plenipotentiary]] circumvents declarations of amity and enmity to a small degree. An eternal formally invited to the Hall of Worlds for a parley may manifest itself or its servants regardless of its status with regard to these declarations.
An Eternal (and associated Heralds) under Declaration of Amity gains the following rights:

 +
Amity or enmity towards an eternal is considered to apply to all that eternal's heralds. In recent years, the Conclave has extended amity or enmity towards a specific herald without rather than the patron eternal. Recent investigation by scholars associated with the [[Madruga#The_Lyceum|Lyceum]] has suggested that this practice may have unexpected consequences.

<div style="float:right; width: 450px;"><box>'''Heralds and eternals'''<br>
 +
During 381YE, a group of arcane scholars associated with the Lyceum undertook a number of experiments and investigations with the assistance of the eternal Lashonar and its herald Ut'Ka. The outcome of these experiments demonstrated something that had long been suspected; when a herald is given amity the supernatural effects apply also to the eternal. As far as the hearth magic that underpins amity (and presumably enmity) is concerned, there is no difference between  an eternal and its heralds.
 +
 
 +
The ''legal'' status of amity and enmity still differentiates between the two, but by giving amity to Baxshula, Uk'ta and the rest the Conclave inadvertently gave amity to the eternals Arhallogen, Irra Harah, Lashonar, and Llofir as well.</box></div>
 +
 
 +
==Declaration==
 +
In each case, the declaration names a single eternal or known group of eternals such as the [[Whisper Gallery]], the [[Lictors]], or the [[The Thrice-cursed Court |Thrice-cursed Court]].
 +
 
 +
==Resolution==
 +
If the declaration passes, the result comes into effect a the end of the Conclave session as normal. The precise effects differ depending on which of the three declarations has been passed.
 +
===Declaration of Amity===
 +
The Conclave may declare a specific [[eternal]], and any associated heralds, an ally of the Conclave. Members of the Conclave are encouraged to demonstrate courtesy and even aid these eternals, or their heralds, where it is possible for them to do so. This declaration automatically overturns a declaration of [[#Declaration of Enmity|enmity]].
 +
 
 +
An eternal (and associated heralds) under declaration of amity gains the following legal rights, enforced by the magistrates.
 +
* They receive protection under [[Imperial_Law_Overview|Imperial Law]]
 
* They can attend conclave meetings
 
* They can attend conclave meetings
* They may be nominated to speak before the conclave, although they cannot vote.
+
* They may be nominated to speak before the conclave by a grandmaster, although they cannot vote. The usual payment of crystal mana must still be made.
* They can place an Address or Declaration onto the conclave agenda under the normal rules as if they were Imperial citizens (the civil service does not accept realm-specific mana as payment).  
+
* They can place an [[Conclave_address|address]] or [[declaration]] onto the conclave agenda under the normal rules as if they were Imperial citizens (the civil service does not accept realm-specific mana as payment).  
* They can make [[Conclave_vault#Bequests|bequests]] to the [[Conclave vault|vault]] of a specific order or to the Conclave as a whole.
+
* They can make [[Conclave_vault#Bequests|bequests]] to the [[Conclave vault|vault]] of a specific order or to the Conclave as a whole. Bequests made to the Conclave as a whole are generally dealt with using a declaration of [[endowment]].
 +
 
 +
The declaration of amity also has a significant magical effect. Eternals and their heralds find it easier to manifest in the Hall of Worlds and to move into Anvil. Eternals with amity also find it easier to wield their powers within the Empire; in many cases eternals require amity to be able to use their most powerful abilities.
 +
 
 +
In some cases, the Empire has attracted the attention of an eternal they wished to initiate contact with through this declaration. The [[Declaration#Declaration of Concord|declaration of amity]] or [[Declaration#Declaration of Concord|declaration of concord]] have occasionally been used with some success, but the most effective way to get the attention of an eternal who is not currently interested in the Empire is through the use of an Archmage's [[Archmage#Plenipotentiary|plenipotentiary]].
 +
===Declaration of Enmity===
 +
The Conclave may declare a specific [[eternal]] to be an enemy of the Empire. If this declaration is made, it becomes dangerous for anyone to consort with the eternal named in this declaration, or with their Heralds. It is not illegal to talk to an eternal with enmity (as is often incorrectly assumed) but the offender risks being declared a [[sorcery|sorcerer]], and can face investigation by a magistrate for treason. A declaration of enmity automatically overturns and replaces a declaration of [[#Declaration of Amity|amity]].
 +
 
 +
An eternal (and associated heralds) under declaration of enmity suffers the following penalties:
 +
* Eternals and heralds under enmity are considered to be barbarians for [[Imperial_Law_Overview#Individuals_and_the_law|legal purposes]].
 +
* Trading or dealing with an eternal under enmity is illegal and will be investigated as [[List_of_Criminal_Offences#Crimes_of_Position|treason]].
 +
* Any ritual that [[Ritual_theory#Rituals_that_deal_with_Eternals|deals directly]] with an eternal subject to the declaration of enmity ([[Ephisis' Scale]] for [[Ephisis]], [[Clarion Call of Ivory and Dust]] for [[Kaela]] or [[Missive for Sadogua]] for [[Sadogua]], for example) is automatically considered to be [[Declaration#Declaration of Interdiction|interdicted]]; magistrates may seek the assistance of the [[archmage|archmages]] to clarify which rituals this effects, unless there is a separate [[Conclave session#Declaration of Interdiction|declaration of interdiction]] against specific rituals.
 +
 
 +
As with the declaration of amity, this declaration also has significant magical effects. Eternals find it much harder to enter the Hall of Worlds. Heralds cannot use the portal in the Hall of Worlds to travel to Anvil without ritual assistance from an Imperial citizen. There is significant evidence that heralds associated with an eternal under enmity find it extremely difficult or impossible to enter the Empire through any regio without ritual assistance.
 +
 
 +
===Declaration of Neutrality===
 +
This declaration removes either amity or enmity from the named eternal, returning them to a neutral legal status. Any benefits gained from, or penalties imposed by, the previous status are lost at the end of the conclave session.
 +
 
 +
Any eternal not listed as having either [[#amity|amity]] or [[#enmity|enmity]] is neutral.
 +
 
 +
Heralds of neutral eternals are not protected by Imperial law - it is legal for them to be slain by Imperial citizens. They are however expected to abide by Imperial law while they are within the confines of the Empire.
 +
==Status of Eternals==
 +
These tables list the status of each of the eternals known to have an interest in the Empire.  
  
The declaration also has a magical effect. Eternals and their Heralds find it easier to manifest in the Hall of Worlds and to move into Anvil.

Amity And Enmity.jpg
The Conclave has powerful tools to use when interacting with eternals.

Overview

The three declarations of amity, enmity, and neutrality are similar in nature. They are a critical tool used by the Imperial Conclave to interact with the eternals, the supernatural denizens that inhabit the six magical realms. They allow the Conclave to declare that a specific eternal (or a defined group of eternals) is an ally or enemy of the Empire, or remove one of those designations and restore the eternal to neutrality.

More than political and legal tools, these declarations have a known magical effect. Eternals who are subject to one of these declarations find their ability to interact with the empire changes to reflect the Conclave's decision. An eternal that has amity for example finds it easier to dispatch heralds and wield its supernatural power within the bounds of the Empire, while one that has enmity finds it significantly harder to perform these actions.

The archmage power of plenipotentiary circumvents declarations of amity and enmity to a small degree. An eternal formally invited to the Hall of Worlds for a parley may manifest itself or its servants regardless of its status with regard to these declarations.

Amity or enmity towards an eternal is considered to apply to all that eternal's heralds. In recent years, the Conclave has extended amity or enmity towards a specific herald without rather than the patron eternal. Recent investigation by scholars associated with the Lyceum has suggested that this practice may have unexpected consequences.

Heralds and eternals

During 381YE, a group of arcane scholars associated with the Lyceum undertook a number of experiments and investigations with the assistance of the eternal Lashonar and its herald Ut'Ka. The outcome of these experiments demonstrated something that had long been suspected; when a herald is given amity the supernatural effects apply also to the eternal. As far as the hearth magic that underpins amity (and presumably enmity) is concerned, there is no difference between an eternal and its heralds.

The legal status of amity and enmity still differentiates between the two, but by giving amity to Baxshula, Uk'ta and the rest the Conclave inadvertently gave amity to the eternals Arhallogen, Irra Harah, Lashonar, and Llofir as well.

Declaration

In each case, the declaration names a single eternal or known group of eternals such as the Whisper Gallery, the Lictors, or the Thrice-cursed Court.

Resolution

If the declaration passes, the result comes into effect a the end of the Conclave session as normal. The precise effects differ depending on which of the three declarations has been passed.

Declaration of Amity

The Conclave may declare a specific eternal, and any associated heralds, an ally of the Conclave. Members of the Conclave are encouraged to demonstrate courtesy and even aid these eternals, or their heralds, where it is possible for them to do so. This declaration automatically overturns a declaration of enmity.

An eternal (and associated heralds) under declaration of amity gains the following legal rights, enforced by the magistrates.

  • They receive protection under Imperial Law
  • They can attend conclave meetings
  • They may be nominated to speak before the conclave by a grandmaster, although they cannot vote. The usual payment of crystal mana must still be made.
  • They can place an address or declaration onto the conclave agenda under the normal rules as if they were Imperial citizens (the civil service does not accept realm-specific mana as payment).
  • They can make bequests to the vault of a specific order or to the Conclave as a whole. Bequests made to the Conclave as a whole are generally dealt with using a declaration of endowment.

The declaration of amity also has a significant magical effect. Eternals and their heralds find it easier to manifest in the Hall of Worlds and to move into Anvil. Eternals with amity also find it easier to wield their powers within the Empire; in many cases eternals require amity to be able to use their most powerful abilities.

In some cases, the Empire has attracted the attention of an eternal they wished to initiate contact with through this declaration. The declaration of amity or declaration of concord have occasionally been used with some success, but the most effective way to get the attention of an eternal who is not currently interested in the Empire is through the use of an Archmage's plenipotentiary.

Declaration of Enmity

The Conclave may declare a specific eternal to be an enemy of the Empire. If this declaration is made, it becomes dangerous for anyone to consort with the eternal named in this declaration, or with their Heralds. It is not illegal to talk to an eternal with enmity (as is often incorrectly assumed) but the offender risks being declared a sorcerer, and can face investigation by a magistrate for treason. A declaration of enmity automatically overturns and replaces a declaration of amity.

An eternal (and associated heralds) under declaration of enmity suffers the following penalties:

As with the declaration of amity, this declaration also has significant magical effects. Eternals find it much harder to enter the Hall of Worlds. Heralds cannot use the portal in the Hall of Worlds to travel to Anvil without ritual assistance from an Imperial citizen. There is significant evidence that heralds associated with an eternal under enmity find it extremely difficult or impossible to enter the Empire through any regio without ritual assistance.

Declaration of Neutrality

This declaration removes either amity or enmity from the named eternal, returning them to a neutral legal status. Any benefits gained from, or penalties imposed by, the previous status are lost at the end of the conclave session.

Any eternal not listed as having either amity or enmity is neutral.

Heralds of neutral eternals are not protected by Imperial law - it is legal for them to be slain by Imperial citizens. They are however expected to abide by Imperial law while they are within the confines of the Empire.
