Quote of the Season
"Her mother lives all in day, her father all in night, and Apolonia straddles the thin, dusky line halving her heart with not so much grace - startling awake in the middle of the night or at the crack of dawn, trying to find some way to compromise." — Apolonia in
The Vine & The Rain & The Light

General Laws
No one falls short of the law, and it is up to the Regime and the Council to see that the laws are upheld.

Oriens is the patron God of Dawn, and as such he is to be respected. You are welcome to worship other deities to your heart’s content, but know that Oriens is not to be disrespected in any fashion.

Knowledge is power to Delumine, and as such outsiders are welcome to our lands in order to increase our knowledge of their homelands and courts. However, while visitors are welcome, violence will not be tolerated. Anyone who attacks, injures, or harms a member of the Dawn Court will be promptly escorted from Delumine, and legal action may or may not be taken against them.

Court meetings are not mandatory, unless otherwise stated. It will be up to the various Champions of the Court to see that those under their rank are being held to certain standards.

Punishment is not something that is taken lightly, but it is not unheard of in Delumine. The severity of the punishment depends on the severity of the crime committed, and will be handled appropriately by the Regime and Delumine’s Judicial branch.

Court Life
Knowledge, honesty and justice are core values to the Court.

It is expected and encouraged for the youth of the Court to expand their horizons by seeking out life in other Courts, and to return to Delumine with valuable life experiences.

At the beginning of the Spring season, a large festival is held to bless the ‘new dawn’ of the year. It ends the period of fasting and fervent prayer that all herd members are expected to partake in at some point during the winter season. It is traditionally at least a week, but some may fast as long as they choose. 

Members of the Court tend to hold their own when it comes to justice. As a society of knowledge, many things are settled without the need for higher intervention. More serious offenses follow a system that, if unable to be resolved end with the Sovereign’s decision -- which is final.
