Code of Honour

[ Back ]

1) In all that you do consider its benefit or harm to your Gods, your family and Clan.

2) Your duty is always to your Gods, your family and Clan... do nothing that would bring shame or dishonor to them.

3) Be honest with yourself and others and let them know you will accept nothing but honesty in return. You should always be above reproach or criticism in the eyes of the world.

4) You should always strive to be kind to others, or, should kindness prove impossible, strive always to be Just.

5) Give your bond only after great consideration as to how it may affect your duty to your Gods, your family and Clan. And when you do give your bond it should carry the weight of a signed and gods-witnessed oath.

6) Do not pass on anything you have not personally witnessed or verified. Never give unproven hearsay the weight of truth.

7) What you have HOLD! Let no one take from you, your family or Clan that which is rightfully and legally yours.

8) Offer forgiveness only to those who are truly repentant of wrongs committed against you, your family or your Clan. And when you offer forgiveness, do so with a joyous heart, for to do so grudgingly is not forgiveness but deceit.

9) Never neglect your family or Clan. Have the fierceness of a Dragon in their defense and always be certain they are provided for before starting any new endeavor.

10) Always remember that the fury and excitement of the moment can play havoc with the truth. To keep one's head in any situation is a virtue.

11) Honor yourself as a child of the Gods. Have pride, but not arrogance, in yourself, your appearance, and your position in the Clan. Do your best in all things. Be generous with self-praise (without bragging) and self-forgiveness when warranted.

12) When you gain power or authority, use it carefully and with wisdom. Remember that both power and authority grow with experience, and as a Priest or Priestess of Clan of the Dragon you should exercise both with care and dignity.

13) Pledge friendship and your assistance only to those who are worthy and honorable. Work to strengthen those of your family, friends and Clan, and they will strengthen you.

14) The laws of the land should be obeyed whenever possible and within reason for the protection of your family and Clan, for in the main they have been chosen with wisdom.

15) Have pride in your Gods and the spirits of the Land. Honor Them and They will assist you in your endeavors.

16) Dignity, a gracious manner and a good humor are to be admired and cultivated. They will aid you to bring honor to your Gods, your family and your Clan.

17) Never reveal the secrets entrusted to you by kin, Clan, or friend without permission. Possession of a wagging tongue marks you as a fool. Exceptions to this are when keeping the secret would endanger an innocent, bring unjustified dishonor to another, bring shame to family or Clan, allow a criminal to go unpunished, or seriously violate the laws of the land. In this matter let common sense prevail.

18) Always be prepared for whatever the Future may bring. Life with all of its joys, sorrows and secrets is to be embraced and experienced to the fullest, for this is how one gains wisdom.

19) When your time in this Life is done, return to your Gods with joy. Stand before Them with pride, but not arrogance, for a life lived with honor, and await with a glad heart until your time of rebirth comes once again.
