Laws of the Temple
The temple is a sacred place to Mother, and these special rules apply to it.
I, No weapons should be drawn on the holy soil unless it is truely needed. If this law is broken the law breaker shall have to pay a fine for the miss deed and ask for forgiveness from mother, as it shall be her land. The fine will be used to improve our city and economy
II, No living thing shall be killed unless in posses a threat to the lives of others. If this rule is broken said person will be banned for life from the holy grounds for tainting it and shall be forcefully removed if needed.
III, The holy grounds must be held with the most respect imaginable therefore no litter shall be dropped or the water tainted with waste products. If one feels the need to break this law they will clean the land.
IV, Guests to the land must be respectful to mother and not under any circumstances insult mother. If the person feels it needed to insult mother on our holy grounds they shall be dealt with harshly and judged by the council to decide their fate
V, During a ceremony guests must be sat quiet and still so the priest may speak in peace. If a person finds they must speak over or even whisper when not needed they shall be removed untill the ceremony is over. If they refuse to leave force may be used against them, if they react with hostility then they will be cut down.
VI, The lands are for the worship of Zelphia only and no man nor lizard should worship any other deity on the lands. Said person can be removed if they feel the need to worship another god. This of course is not to put down other gods as most hold importance to the land.
Relationship with other towns
We currently treat other towns and guilds with a neutral stance, although we are open to emissaries.
((the following is written in lizard))
Law of Unity of arms
I All citizens are to wear a blue cloak*
II All lizardfolk are to have at least a basic knowledge of fighting, preferable using claws
III An attack on a lizard, is an attack on Mother. If a lizard is attacked, the others are to help
IV Under no circumstance, shall a lizard ever retreat, when defending a place sacred to Mother
V A stockpile of arms is to be kept by Zzyathis, in case the need to arm lizards in preperation for a battle arises
* The blue cloak may be obtained for free from a counciller
Law of Economic Unity
I) All Lizards are to attempt to find a profession, where tools are required, they need only to speak to a counciller and they shall get them
II) If a lizard is new to a profession, he should find an expert lizard and become his/her apprentice
III) A lizard will NOT ask for profit for his goods, if the goods or services are purchased by another lizard. A lizard will not seek to earn money off his brother's back
IV) Where the good or service is expensive, the seller may ask for goods or money equal to the raw materials s/he used to make the item.
(For example: A lizard buying a helmet may be asked to fetch 4 ignots, or something equivalently priced)
V) For items which require a component to be made by another lizard, it is usually fair that a % of the profit gained from selling the product, is given to that lizard
VI) The buyer may 'tip' (give more money/resources) the seller at his will and at his descretion. The seller may reduce the amount of resources asked.
