"We shall never let the Civil War come again, never shall the cancer regrow. Thus is set down the Code, and if it is not abided, we shall cleanse the sick once again."
~ Master of Shadow's Declaration after the Purge

Enforcement and Tribunals Edit

The Code covers the basics of preferred manners of dealing with feuds between two Cartelites and the punishments mete out to those that cannot understand the limitations imposed by the Shadow. Because of the secretive nature of the Sixth Sect this has led to the creation of "Tribunals". Tribunals are a collection of three Officials who are charged with hearing the case of two Cartelites and then deciding their fate. The Tribunal is often overseen by the Administrator of the Territory if a major instance of the Code being broken occurs. During this both the accused and the plaintiff are watched by members of the Shadow. No one is allowed to enact challenge or vendetta when a Tribunal is convened. Anyone breaking this prohibition faces severe punishment from the Shadow themselves.

The result of the Tribunal is ruled after a clear majority is reached. The punishment is then handed out publicly with members of the Shadow presiding as law enforcement. The severity of the crime often dictates the severity of the punishment, and can range from a reprimand to public flogging and even repossession of Chained the person may own.

The Terms of Entente Edit

The basis of Entente is broken down into what are known as the "Terms". Each Term is a section within the Code that dictates action and punishment found congruent with that Term. In this manner all punishments fit the crime and all forms of conflict find a foundation of control to prevent all out war (something which was ignored during the Cartel Civil War). The words of the First Shadow state the code:

Ashen Word Edit

“The right of the Ashen Words dictates that one shall never reveal the internal workings of the Cartel to outsiders. Doing so breaks the trust earned as a member of the Cartel and warrants severe punishment.”
"It is in one's best interests to leave as few loose ends if possible. All loose ends in that regard must be tied lest they reveal the existence of the Ashenfold. Violators of this right shall be considered breakers of the code and may face possible exile if continued acts are discovered."
