~The Offical Noon Charter~
The Articles of Intent
1. 0. 0. 1 Established
Noon was re-established Feb 24, 2010 with the idea that all Members (Vikings) were free men/women of Honor and if wronged or slandered would have the right of retribution, when and where it would hurt there enemy the most.
1. 0. 0. 2 The Viking Code:
A man of honor was a principled man. He was given to moderation, was hospitable and generous and offered a helping hand to friends in need. (Including aligning himself against his friend’s enemies). A man of honor also never forgot to be the foe of his enemy. This he did with all his heart.
The opposite of honor was disgrace, and because every man lived his life as a member of an extended family-circle, he could easily bring disgrace to his entire family - including his forefathers. Therefore, it was intolerable for a free man to live in such a fallen state. If he was disgraced, he could only restore balance in his social system by confronting the source of his fall from an honorable status. Thus, revenge was a key component of this social system, a system which placed great importance upon maintaining personal honor.
