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.
An Eternal (and associated Heralds) under Declaration of Amity gains the following rights:
- They can attend conclave meetings
- They may be nominated to speak before the conclave, although they cannot vote.
- 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.
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.
Eternals with Amity
As of 376YE, no Eternals were in a position of amity following the disastrous intervention of Emperor Walter. Over the course of 377YE, declarations of Amity were passed by the Conclave for the Eternal Sadogua and Carolinus Kade, the Herald of Basileus Kade.
An Eternal (and associated Heralds) under Declaration of Enmity suffers the following penalties:
- Eternals and Heralds under enmity count as barbarians for legal purposes.
- Trading with an Eternal under enmity is illegal.
- Any ritual that deals directly with an Eternal subject to the declaration of enmity (such as Ephisis' Scale for Ephisis, Clarion Call of Ivory and Dust for Kaela or Missive for Sadogua for Sadogua and so on) is automatically considered to be interdicted; magistrates may seek the assistance of the archmagi to clarify which rituals this effects, unless there is a separate declaration of interdiction against specific rituals.
The declaration also has 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.
Eternals with enmity
As of 376 YE, the only well-known Eternal subject to declaration of enmity is Wendigo, a Winter Eternal that promotes unspeakable acts and cannibalistic feasts. He was made subject to this declaration in the 306 YE Winter Solstice session of the Conclave following exposure of his involvement in no less than three cannibalistic cults dedicated to blasphemy, idolatry and heresy.
