The Oath of the Covenant of Red Palus


Being the charter of the Covenant of Red Palus, in the Year 1132 of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.

I pledge my lifelong support and loyalty to the Covenant of Red Palus, and declare that the trials and fortunes of this covenant are now my own. Just as I am pledged to the Oath of Hermes, so do I pledge the covenant to the Order of Hermes and the authority of the Tribunal of Stonehenge. I swear to uphold and protect this covenant regardless of the personal price. Over all the years of my life and throughout my studies and travels, I will neither betray the covenant nor give aid to its enemies. In times of need, I will aid the covenant in whatever way I am able, and I will devote myself to its service if the need is clear. I will abide by the decisions of the ruling council of this covenant, and I will treat these decisions as if they were my own. I will treat my fellows with respect and fairness, and I will not attempt to harm them in any way. Their blood is my blood. Where the covenant stands, there do I stand; how the covenant grows, so do I grow; should the covenant fall, then do I fall. This I so swear, upon the honor of my house and its Founder.
Given under our hand,



Membership

The covenant allows for two types of membership of its council, and recognizes a third status, which it offers to visitors to the covenant.
The status of Protected Guest may be extended to any person by the
formal invitation of a single full member of the covenant. Protected Guests
are afforded the basic rights detailed by this charter, and are not obligated
to the Council of Members, nor are they a member of this council. Protected
Guests may partake in meetings of the Council of Members should they
desire it, but are required to leave if asked to do so by a member of that
council, and are afforded no voice nor vote unless granted such by the
council’s chairman, the disceptator. The status of Protected Guest may be
may be revoked by the member who granted it, or by a vote of the Council
of Members.
The status of Probationary Member of the Council may be extended
to any magus in good standing of the Order of Hermes, who owes no
allegiance nor fealty to any other covenant, and is admitted upon the unanimous
approval of the current Council of Members. Provisional members assume the basic and provisional rights detailed by this charter and the duties therein attached. The status of provisional member shall last a period of seven seasons, unless abridged through censure or canceled through expulsion.
The status of Full Member of the Council is extended upon the
completion of the duties and obligations of a probationary member, unless
testimony is brought against him that proves him unfit to swear the Oath of
Covenant in good conscience; in which case all rights of membership will be
withdrawn. Should elevation to the role of full member take place, then all
rights and duties of probationary membership are shed, to be replaced with
the assumption of the basic and full rights detailed by this charter, and the
duties therein attached. Full membership persists, unless abridged through
censure or canceled through expulsion.
Should a magus ever come to desire release from this covenant, he must
renounce his Oath of Covenant in the presence of at least two members of the
council, and shall thereby be relieved of all duties and rights, and may not
call upon such rights furthermore.
By name,
Alessandra Giovanni ex Bonisagus filia ZZZ, .
Anna Caracola ex Bonisagus, filia ZZZ
Lochus ex Merenita filius .
Malebranche ex Bjornaer filius X, .
Kratos ex Tytalus, filius Y

shall be Full Members.

Governance of this
Covenant

The members of this covenant are governed by the Council of
Members, which shall consist of all probationary and full members of the
covenant. This council shall not declare action except on behalf of the entire
membership of the covenant; no action may be demanded of individuals by
council agreement. Conversely, the rulings of the council cannot be overturned
by an individual.
Any member of the covenant shall have the right and duty to convene
the Council of Members for consideration of matters justly grave, and all
members shall be charged with attendance and diligence in the proceedings.
Should it not be possible to convene the full Council of Members, any quorum
consisting of more than half of its current members is considered valid;
else the discharge of the council’s duty must be delayed until such time as the
full council may be convened. The Council of Members shall convene four
times each year, one day prior to each equinox and solstice, regardless of
call from any member, and all members of the covenant should endeavor to
make themselves present.
Motions to be decided upon by the Council of Members must be introduced
by a member; debated fully and justly, allowing those who wish to speak to do so; and then proposed for the vote. Proposals must be seconded by another member of the covenant, else no vote can take place. All issues shall be passed by a majority vote of the members there present; excepting that the unanimous opinion of the Council of Members is required for issues involving changes to the charter; expulsion of a member; and acceptance of a new probationary member.
The Council of Members shall confer the office of disceptator to the
representative of the covenant in matters of governance and temporal concern.
Each disceptator serves for a period of seven years, commencing one
year following Tribunal. The title of disceptator is a duty determined through a majority vote in two rounds on the Summer council gathering that precedes the Tribunal The duties of the disceptator are: to attend regular
meetings of the council; to keep order at meetings; to break tied votes with a
discretionary casting vote; to determine the yearly surplus of provision and
store; and to act as a spokesman for the Council of Members. The disceptator
shall not be empowered to rule on matters on the covenant’s behalf, but
instead is charged with ensuring that the rulings of the Council of Members
are enacted.

Resources Owned by
this Covenant

Resources of this covenant are held in common by the Council of Members, and it is the responsibility of this council to maintain and defend them.
This covenant lays claim to all the vis originating from undisputed
and unclaimed sources discovered by members of the council; save for the
first harvest of a new vis source, which belongs to the finder or finders. This
covenant also lays claim to any vis gifted to the Council of Members as a
whole. In all other situations, undisputed and unclaimed vis belongs to the
finder or finders.
This covenant lays claim to all books obtained by members of the
council while acting at the behest of the council, and all books scribed by
members of the council where payment was received for this scribing from the
covenant’s resources. This covenant also lays claim to any texts gifted to the
Council of Members as a whole.
This council lays claim to all magical items obtained by members of
the council while acting at the behest of the council; and all magical items
made by members of the council where payment was received for this manufacture from the covenant’s resources. This covenant also lays claim to any
magical items gifted to the Council of Members as a whole.
This council lays claim to all monies generated using the resources of
the covenant. This council also lays claim to all monies obtained by members
of the council while acting at the behest of the council. This covenant
also lays claim to any monies gifted to the Council of Members as a whole.
This council lays claim to the buildings, defenses, chattels, and inhabitants
of the covenant. This council also lays claim to any such buildings,
defenses, chattels, and inhabitants gifted to the Council of Members as a
whole.
Surplus resources of the covenant will be determined at the Winter
meeting of the Council of Members. Resources necessary for the continued
existence of the covenant and the protection of its members’ rights are
accounted for first; this includes payment for seasons of work performed on
behalf of the covenant, and a stipend of vis for the casting of the Aegis of
the Hearth. Contributions to all debts owed to the covenant are decided by
the disceptator, and set aside. The remaining resources are deemed surplus,
and shall be allocated to the settlement of requests from each member of the
covenant.


Rights of the Members
of this Covenant

Each and every member of this covenant and protected guests shall
be entitled to the basic rights of the covenant; to whit, full and unrestricted
access to the protection and support of the covenant within the boundaries of
the covenant by all the rights and benefits accorded by the Code of Hermes,
the benefit of a sanctum which shall remain inviolate and the supply of
materials thereof, access to the library of the covenant, and victuals appropriate
to the status of a magus. These basic rights shall not be abridged
except by expulsion from the Council of Members.
In furtherance and additional to the basic rights, a full member of
the covenant shall be entitled to the full rights of the covenant; to whit, the
right to presence and a vote in the Council of Members, which he shall
exercise dutifully with due prudence. Further, full and unrestricted access to
the services and skills of the servants and covenfolk. Further, an equal right
to all surplus provision and store necessary to conduct his studies, or the
travel demanded by those studies; such rights to include (but be not limited
to) vis, monies, and diverse magical and mundane resources claimed by the
covenant. Where a conflict is evident between members of the council over
the allotment of surplus resource, distribution is drawn by ballot; excepting
that priority claims that have been advanced and agreed by the disceptator
are taken into consideration prior to the ballot. These rights shall not be
abridged except by decision of the council under conditions of grave concern.
In furtherance and additional to the basic rights of a member of this
covenant, a probationary member of the covenant is entitled the probationary
rights of the covenant; to whit, a fractional share of those rights and
duties offered to a full member of the covenant, such share being equal to
half that offered to full members. A probationary member’s vote counts only
half of that of a full member, and they may only claim half the share of
the surplus provision and store of the covenant’s resources afforded a full
member. The services and skills of the servants and covenfolk may not be
halved, but the needs of a full member of the covenant take precedence over
the needs of a probationary member. Further, a probationary member of the
covenant who remains true to his Oath of Covenant has the right to remain
at the covenant for a total of seven seasons following the conferral of this
status. Further, a probationary member of the covenant has the right to be
considered for full membership of this covenant after serving a total of seven
seasons as a probationary member. These rights shall not be abridged except
by decision of the council under conditions of grave concern.


Responsibilities of
the Members of this
Covenant

Members of this covenant are obligated to obey the Oath of Hermes
and the Peripheral Code, as demanded by the Oath of Covenant; failure
on this account will not be tolerated by the Council of Members, and the
covenant reserves the right to censure those members who are convicted in just
Tribunal of an offense against the Order of Hermes.
The responsibility of the members of this covenant towards its lasting
success is dependent on service to the covenant. The Council of Members
will declare the duties that need to be performed at the regular meetings of
the covenant. Such duties include (but are not limited to) the safeguarding
and harvesting of the covenant’s claimed vis sources, the safeguarding and
harvesting of the covenant’s income, the wellbeing and discipline of the covenant’s employees, the maintenance of the covenant’s resources, the increase
of the covenant’s resources, and the maintenance of good relations with the
covenant’s allies. Duties that will not entail more than a week of service at
low personal risk will be assigned by the council to its members, with no
more than one being assigned to each member in each season. Such assigned
duties attract no recompense or advantage to the member who discharges
them, but cannot be refused without reasonable extenuation.
Duties which will entail a higher investment of time or personal risk
will be offered up for service by the covenant. These services will attract a
remuneration which shall be commensurate with the time, risk, and potential
benefit to the covenant. This remuneration is decided by the disceptator, but
maintains a minimum payment which shall be, for a single season of work
at low risk with a low gain, two pawns of vis, of the flavor most prevalent
in the stores at the time. The disceptator may increase the remuneration to
increase the attractiveness of a particular urgent task, for the Council of
Members is not empowered to force a member to accept one of these duties
unless failure to perform it would be in breach of this covenant, in which
case the threat of censure may be employed. All payments will be made in
the Spring meeting of the Council. If there is more than one claimant for the
service, and each claimant refuses to share the duty, then the disceptator will
assign the duty by ballot. If there is insufficient vis to meet the demands of
the council, the disceptator may withhold payment for one or more years.
Covenant work may be declared such retroactively.
Each probationary member of the covenant is obligated to perform no
fewer than one of the tasks under remuneration currently outlined by the
Council of Members during his period of probation. For this mandatory
service, no payment need be offered by the Council of Members.


Censure of the Members
of this Covenant

If a member should contravene the decisions of the council, by vote or
by charter, then the member may be censured or expelled by a vote of the
Council of Members. Censure requires the passing of a motion at a meeting
of the Council of Members. The censure of a full member revokes the rights of
that status, returning him to probationary status; whereupon he assumes all
the duties and rights of that status. Censure must not prejudice the application
of a probationary member to the position of full member of the covenant.
The censure of a probationary member shall abridge the rights of the member
to remain a probationary member of the covenant, and shall confer upon him
instead the status of Protected Guest. The status of a Protected Guest may
be withdrawn at any time by a vote of the Council of Members without need
for censure.
Expulsion is enacted by a majority of three out of four vote of the remaining Council of Members. Expulsion is the only means through which a member of the covenant shall lose his basic rights; and requires that the former member
ceases to draw upon those basic rights subsequent to the first full moon after
expulsion was enacted. Should a magus be cast out from the Order, it is the
duty and obligation of this covenant that he shall also and without delay be
expelled from this covenant.


The Seal of Office
This charter was approved by ZZZZZZ , Quaesitor in good standing, in the Year 1132 of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
