I have been looking for a current Town Charter for Fortnight. The only one I have been able to find is from 2013, and it makes mention of a sheriff and has no mention of any Mayor position. Also, is there a list of what is/isn't illegal somewhere, or a list of laws given by the King/Barron/Duke?

There is a 2015 town charter posted under "Merchant Square" in the IG forum.

Oh wow, that is confusing, ok.

Do you know of a list/document of laws/decrees?

It's feudal. Whatever the Lord says is and isn't illegal. Whatever the Baron says. Whatever the Duke says. And they can change it as they see fit. It's why there have never really been anything set in stone.

So far for the immediate fortnight area, the big ones (outside of no thievery, no piracy, no murdering (self defense is OK) etc) are:

No Necromancy. (More specifically no creation of ambulatory undead)

No Torture

No Treason Against the Crown

No causing riots.

Etc.

Anna and Josh and Ray, or the World Team, should probably check this over and then add any other details they can think of.

This is why any argument of what is "technically " legal or illegal is totally erroneous. What we should be doing is keeping a record of how the law has acted in the past, so that we are aware of precedents.

Exactly, the only "technically" legal/illegal stuff is whatever has been specified in decrees. The rest is much more vague.

Hence my question. What decrees have been made? And who made them, Duke, Baron, or King?

Or is this more of an in-game list that hasn't been made yet?

Yeah, I think the only people who would possibly have a complete list would be owners or world team, or a really dedicated plot person. If you would like that list OOG I would email them, but for an IG list, I think the information here is most of what anyone could get.

The only one of them that I remember who gave the decree is the lord of Fortnight decreed the toture law, though it should be noted that anyone in town service (militia, constable, council, or mayor) is likely to be held to such decrees even when not in the township of fortnight.

The recent decree (from the duke I believe) regarding the end of the war with Malay, also prohibited treating Malayans unfairly, and charging Malayan travellers any kind of reparations.

Thats the only decree that I actually witnessed over the last year.

close dialog Character Management

All requests to create a new character or make changes to existing characters is handled by emailing Logistics. When creating a new character or making significant changes to an existing character players should use the Character card maker. For more minor changes players may just describe the change that they wish to make, for example "I wish to spend 200 favor to buy Skill points, and use those skill points to buy 3 purchases of the Skill Reserve". The email should contain the player's name, and if it is an update to an existing character, the character name as it appears on the character card - Logistics may not be aware of which character a nick name goes to.

Players should also email Logistics with Character Production (Items the character is making with Skills such as Smith, Alchemist, or Spell Wright) for the upcoming month so that Logistics is able to make the Item Tags in advance. For example "I wish to use my 50 Smith production to make a standard crafted 1 handed weapon".

Production and Character Updates MUST be submitted no later than the Friday prior to the event in order to provide Logistics sufficient time to complete the request prior to event, unless Logistics has specifically announced a different policy for a specific event (for example, if events are only 2 weeks apart Logistics often allows submissions into the week of event).
