All members are expected to behave in line with Morningstar's Creed. The largest determining factor of membership in Morningstar is it's Creed, and no friendship, rank, Co, GM, member, opinion, desire or argument of any individual trumps the Creed.
Cos are bound by Vow at their Inheritance to uphold Creed, and gaining a Co Crown does not give authority to change Creed in any way.
Crowns are given as symbols of lifelong, sworn service to the Creed, not rulership over it. Just as Co's CANNOT override Creed itself, no Rank or position beneath Co can be protected by a Co from Creed.
Co's that protect a member, rank, or friend and sacrifice the Creed to do so, inherently abandon their Co Crowns and break Covenant, resulting in termination of both the member and the Co. Violations will result in one of the following, depending upon the severity of the offense.
Co - Co Crown removed, Co Title stripped, Throne and Vow considered abandoned, reinstatement dependent on remaining Co House Trial done in public before the whole of the House.
Both termination and reinstatement is dependent on a majority Co Trial OR 51% House Majority publicly stating their wish to terminate or reinstate. This is NOT to be done privately, but publicly, in front of the whole House, not just in front of the the Officers. Co Trials will not be kept secret from the House. Important: Co Crowns CAN be revoked, but this must be done according to a specific process, called a Co Trial. A Co Trial is held at the request of the House, and once requested, cannot be denied. Let me repeat that. If a Co Trial is requested, it MUST proceed. A date will be set to hold the trial. Officers OTHER than the Co in question, will proceed to message and communicate with EVERY member on the House's roster, FIRST, before proceeding with the Co in question. These officers need to be in communication, and these conversations are held 1 v 1, privately, and each member is expected to be fully honest, with full disclosure, about any concerns, events, perspectives, etc, in entirity. This is where your officers are gathering your input, so please be thourough. Once each member has been spoken to, all RETIRED and CURRENT Cos are to start a meeting, and bring the Co in question into it. Address the issue thourougly, and ALLOW the Co in question to speak. A HOUSE VOTE may be inititated, simply put, each member of the House is to be requested to submit a vote on their stane for the Co to keep their Crown, face a DA probationary suspension, or remove their Crown. A Co requested to remove said Crown must derank, immediately. They may only be reinstated per a later Co Trial and 51% minimum House vote. This system is put in place to PROTECT the House itself, and shall not be removed. Power is fluid here, as it should be, and conditional. The House will not be ruled unjustly.
GM and Below -
- Disciplinary Action (D.A.) - Member note updated with D.A. denoting Diciplinary Action and the nature of the offense, which means you're on blast for exactly WHY you're D.A.'d in front of everyone, for the duration of your probate, Transient Rank demotion, freeze of the ability to earn RP or complete RP transactions and a probationary period assigned.
- Kick, ban and possible blacklisting depending on the severity of the offence.
2. The Co's decisions are the final say, however, we are open to discussion. Co's are NOT required to go with majority House decision, as their job is NOT to please the members, but to serve the House itself, first. The Vows of Co Creator's inheritance is to serve Christ's plan for the House, not the members, under Covenant.
CO'S MAY NOT PRESSURE ANY MEMBER OF MORNINGSTAR TO CHANGE THEIR RELIGION, SEXUAL ORIENTATION, ETC. HOM RECOGNIZES, FIRST AND FOREMOST, THAT MAN WAS GIVEN FREE WILL, AND IT IS NOT EVER ACCEPTABLE FOR AN OFFICER OF ANY RANK TO ATTEMPT TO TAKE THAT FREE WILL AWAY. THIS NEEDS TO BE STATED, IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN, THE PERSONAL CHOICE OF EACH MAN HERE IS EXACTLY THAT, A PERSONAL CHOICE BETWEEN THAT INDIVIDUAL AND GOD ALONE, YOU MAY SAY WHAT YOU BELIEVE PERSONALLY, YOU MAY NEVER FORCE THAT UPON SOMEONE ELSE. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT MAN WAS CREATED BY GOD, YOU BELIEVE GOD CREATED MAN WITH INHERENT CHOICE AND FREE WILL, AND GOD DID NOT MAKE A MISTAKE GIVING MAN FREE WILL. THEREFORE, CHRIST INTENDED EACH MAN TO HAVE FREE WILL TO CHOOSE, AND IT IS NOT YOUR RIGHT TO TAKE AWAY ANOTHER MAN'S GOD GIVEN FREE WILL. HOM BELIEVES THAT THIS IS SIMILAR TO ATTEMPTING TO DO GOD'S JOB FOR HIM, AND SITTING IN GOD'S THRONE PASSING A JUDGMENT THAT IS RESERVED AS GOD'S RIGHT ALONE. WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. FOR CHRISTIANS, LOVE YOUR BROTHER, NOT RULE OVER YOUR BROTHER, YOU ARE NOT KING. PERIOD. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, CHECK YOUR BIBLE. IF SEXUALLY FORCING YOURSELF ON A MAN OR WOMAN IS PHYSICAL RAPE, FORCING PERSONAL RELIGION CHOICE ON ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IS SPIRITUAL RAPE, AND GOD DOES NOT NEED YOU TO DO HIS JOB FOR HIM. YOU WERE GIVEN ONE COMMAND, LOVE YOUR BROTHER AS YOURSELF, AND LOVE EVEN THOSE YOU DISLIKE AS YOURSELF. YOU ARE EXPECTED TO OBEY THAT HERE. PERIOD. TO NON-CHRISTIANS, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE, AND PLEASE UNDERSTAND AND ENFORCE BOUNDARIES WITH YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS. WE WILL NOT ALLOW ABUSE, EVEN SELF-RIGHTEOUS SPIRITUAL ABUSE. PERIOD. WE ARE STATING THIS UP FRONT, AS WE HAVE HAD PEOPLE ATTEMPT THIS CRAP HERE, AND IT WILL NOT FLY. YOU WILL NOT BULLY, ABUSE, HARRASS, DEGRADE, BE HATEFUL, SIT IN JUDGMENT OR CONDEMN IN THIS COMMUNITY, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE. TRY IT AND WE WILL DEPOSIT YOU NOT NECCESSARILY NICELY BACK THROUGH THE DOOR FROM WHENCE YOU WALKED IN.
To choose the individual mass above the design is inherently, to kill the House itself for the mass's pleasure. This is tantamount to treason. Co's are not bound to rule in Christ's place by Vow, hence "House of Christ", Co's do not OWN the House, not even Co's standing together united usurp Ownership, they are simply sworn to serve that Ownership. As such, no individual within the House may override the True Crown and Throne.
3. Gold donations should be mailed in-game to Rewards Points Admin. Item donations should likewise be mailed the same. End of Day Reports are REQUIRED to be in game mailed OR posted to Discord EODR channel for non-gold / item Rewards Points payment to RP accounts, period. No EODR, no Account credit. This is the responsibility of the individual member, it is not on the Council to follow you around with a low-jack tracker, it is YOUR responsibiity to log and submit your tracked activities to them.
4. You need to have a mic to remain in the Guild, or at least be active in text chat. If you are not interacting and staying in communication, there is a problem. Active does not simply mean that your icon shows you are online next to your name in our Guild roster. Green Dots, as we call them (logged into the game programming but not integrated into the House itself) is still Inactive. A dead tag is a dead tag, irregardless of its server login. Playing solo is fine, at times, being strictly solo simply means there is no reason for you to be here other than self gratification, self benefit and dead weight that sacrifices the whole for the one. Useless tags simply translate to that tag being useless for continued presence.
5. We will not continually run you through infomation over and over that can easily be found through the website. Remember, we need to be here for ALL of our members in all things, please understand that we cannot dedicate 100% of our attention all of the time to one person. Use the site and familiarize yourself with it's content, as everything Guild related will end up here first. You have been given a "handbook and House manual". Your use or failure to use said manual is on your head, not ours.
6. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE if you are in Guild chat, TRY to be respectful of everyone. Attempting to not interupt others, not monopolizing the whole chat, power tripping, dick measuring, or generally making a nuisance of yourself are things that SHOULD be common courtesy to your other members. If 20 people are uncomfortable for the pleasure of the one, we will cut our losses for the least loss possible, irregardless of personal relationship. Friends are fine, and we do hope that all become friends, but again, relationships individually may not cause the united entity to lose value for the value of the individual.
ABOVE ALL, BE RESPECTFUL, HAVE FUN, HELP OUT AND DON'T BE A DICK.
Side note that shouldn't be neccessary but sometimes is:
Thief? Hit the bricks.
Troll? Hit the bricks.
Gay bash? Hit the bricks.
Elitist? Hit the bricks.
Anti-social? We're looking for active/interactive.
Snowflake? Hit the bricks.
So on and so forth, if you don't get the gist, you're too stupid to last here.
