A simple set of rules agreed upon by the kingdoms in times long ago the Covenants, as they are known, still hold due to their simplicity. They are:
- Each kingdom shall be headed by one of the Bloodline
- No kingdom or individual shall engage in the summoning of outside forces
- The development and use of magic capable of destruction on a large scale
The oversight of the Covenants is performed by a neutral third party organization called The Order. It is The Order that is set to investigate groups attempting to summon outsiders or develop magic to dangerous. Furthermore, when a ruler is prematurely dies without leaving an heir, a not uncommon situation, or a new kingdom rises it is The Order’s duty to find a new ruler from the people of that kingdom that is part of the Bloodline.
