Introduction: Porta Inferni is a Military County, (Player Vs. Player), PVE Settlement

Greetings! Welcome to The County of Porta Inferni. I hope that you find the information provided here, useful in deciding whether or not you wish to begin your life within Porta Inferni. It is only fair to inform you that this county is named Hell’s Gate for a reason. We will actively serve as a barrier protecting the Kingdom of Ashland and the realm of The Grand Duke Polite of Sanctaphandri. You are welcome to live in peace and pursue the life path of your choice but be forewarned either you serve, or you support those who serve. The peace you enjoy must be earned with the sword or with the share plough. When Porta Inferni was first founded, it was imagined to be a mining town that would house those who wanted to live the simple life of the pickaxe and the forge. As a simple mayor, peace is all I wanted but as time passed, I heard the rattling of swords and the heavy thuds of the Drums of War. As Kings and Dukes rattled their Sabers, I knew I had to do more. Porta Inferni is now a Shield Wall County. Those who wish to live in peace will be able to do so but those who wish to stand and protect will be rewarded.

Laws (Pending in Game Mechanics Release)

Communicate: Respectfully to friend and foe.

Do not shit-talk people in channels, voice or text: We are all here to play games and we are all here to have fun, so make it more enjoyable for everyone in this community and don't be an ass. Perfect harmony is not expected, personalities will clash, just maintain a level head. We earn respect by giving respect in all venues of communication.

Loyalty: You are free to associate with who you like, but do not forget where your loyalties lie. (Any aristocrat i.e. mayor/baron or above whether in our kingdom or another, is not allowed dual citizenship. dual citizenship is for everyone below aristocrats. This only applies to NA-W For example, if you are part of the NA-E Kingdom as a duke, you are still completely fine to be in Ashland on any level

Speak Up: Do not let a fight, misunderstanding, or other issue fester into drama and petty attacks, and instead strive to bring a clear and final resolution to the problem before it escalates. Try to resolve the situation on your own, but if you believe you are being bullied, harassed, or mistreated by anyone in the community, regardless of their title, you should absolutely bring it up to a Moderator or Duke. Inflammatory subjects: Do not, do not, do not talk about real-life politics or religion. It is the wrong platform. If you are so bound and determined to speak about political issues online, then go to a political blog or news site. The same goes for religion. We are here to game, not make our lives more stressful. (Applies especially to present-day politics, but does not apply to in-game politics and religion

Punitive Action: Ashland trusts and relies upon all its citizens and expects its citizens to reciprocate. Any Ashland citizen who violates or dishonors the Codes, or otherwise transgresses against the Kingdom, may be punished by the King at his discretion.

Law of the Foras: Foras have one right and one right alone! They are allowed to live in peace and are mandated to live by the code of the land. If they break the law, there will be no litigation, no trial, there will be exile and possible death. All accusations of breaking the law or violations of contracts will be decided with a fair trial by the ruling council above. All citizens will be treated with respect and will not be discriminated against for real-life situations or traits. (Please keep in mind this is a Role-Play themed County, In Character (IC) confrontations, are approved, however, Out of Character (OOC) drama will not be tolerated.)
