Dealing with and aftermath thereof.

These rules cannot be changed, even if both sides agree.

All wars require:

  • A valid Casus Belli.
  • CBs must be approved by staff before a war can take place.
  • An official declaration in #wars.

All war participants must agree to follow the Convention or create alternate rules.

  • If players cannot decide on a war system, the arbiter is to default to The Convention.

All participating factions' leaders must be present for a war to begin.

  • Once a war has begun, a faction leader may delegate leadership of the war effort to another player
  • If all members of a faction log off, it is an automatic surrender.
  • Only the war leader is able to declare a surrender.

All wars require a staff arbiter.

  • If no staff are available, staff may allow a trusted, neutral player to arbitrate.
  • The arbiter has final say over any disputes during the war.

Once a war has concluded, a treaty should be drawn up and sent to #treaties.

    Treaties must be approved by staff before being implemented.

    • This is to ensure nations don't impose overly unfair terms.
    • Treaties involving land exchanges will be enforced by staff if players don't comply.
    • If a war treaty is broken / not followed, the breaking faction and/or players will be punished.

    War times and places should be agreed on by the nation leaders and arbiter.

    • If the war is postponed by a side more than twice they lose the war.
    • If an arbiter cannot make the agreed upon time a new arbiter will be found.

    Nations may call up to 3 allies to assist them in war.

    • They must be allied prior to the declaration of war.

    Conditional and unconditional surrender.

    • Conditional surrender is approved by both sides, agreeing to end the war based on a set treaty. If both sides agree to the conditional surrender, the terms will be carried out. If not, the war continues.
    • Unconditional surrender is when one side surrenders during a war without terms. This automatically makes them subject to the harshest of terms allowed under the CB that started the war.
