Law Update III
All faiths have the same legal rights and religious freedom and
must generally be respected. It is forbidden to violate the holy
places of a faith or attack the high priest who attends such a
place whether it be a temple, shrine, church, dome, chapel, or any
comparable place. Persons who are caught violating a holy place
or attacking a high priest may be KILLED by believers of that
respected faith and their possessions taken. Pursuit of the
attacker outside the holy place is not permitted and the exit out
of a holy place may NOT be blocked.
If someone is killed while defending the holy place or high priest
then that person can accuse the killer of PK. Believers may NOT
order non believers from their holy place unless an attack occurs
or that holy place is a guild area.
Included in this law will be Eladan, high priest of Xan who
frequents the streets of Padorn.
NOT included are demigods because they are not considered
high priests and have a free will to do as they please.
Protection of the Padorn Guards ::top
The Padorn Guards are under the protection of the Judge of Padorn and
the Satai guild. They CANNOT pursue a guard attacker unless that person
is in the presence of the guards. The attacker will not be chased all
over the land but will only be attacked if caught fighting the guards.
The attacker must be given a chance for escape therefore the exits must
NOT be blocked. If the attacker dies at the scene or runs away and dies
he has no recourse with the law. If the protectors are killed while protec-
ting the guards then they can file a PK accusation with the court.
If an attacker of the guards runs away and the guard protectors chase
him and kill him then the attacker can file a PK accusation with the
Creatures which belong to citizens of Xyllomer ::top
All creatures/imps/demons/zombies etc. are now protected under the
law but ONLY when in the company of their master. If a creature etc.
is found alone, it is fair game for anyone wanting to kill it. If the
master of the creature is invisible and doesn't let an attacker or
potential attacker of his creature know that he is there, then the
attacker will not be found at fault for killing the creature.
One other thing about this matter, if you choose to attack a creature
and are killed, then you are NOT allowed to file an accusation with the
court. If an invisible master of a creature doesn't choose to tell
the attacker he is there then he also CANNOT assist his creature.
court. You were taking your chances.
