By these binding agreements, the participants in the War between those certain Houses of the Courts of Chaos and the sovereign state of Amber acknowledge that these items are necessary to the further relations of these two Signatory Entities.

All armed contingents will withdraw until a five thousand meter buffer of clear terrain exists between the Chaosian force and the Amberite force.

Military commanders may continue to hold their regimental field command posts in place or with respect to the buffer. Chaosian field commands will quit the field within 1000 turnings. Amberite field commands will quit the field within 3000 turnings.

All Chaosians, regardless of locale are under the rule of law of the Houses of the Courts of Chaos. Prisoners held by Amberite forces will be returned to the Chaosian side of the buffer within 100 turnings. Aid required for Chaosians regardless of locale will be rendered by Chaos healers and/or warlords and/or commanders with free passage through the Amber held field.

All Amberites, regardless of locale are under the rule of law of the sovereign state of Amber. Prisoners held by Chaosian forces will be returned to the Amberite side of the buffer within 100 turnings. Aid required for Amberites regardless of locale will be rendered by Amber healers and/or commanders and/or royals with free passage through the Chaos held field.

No part of these articles stands above Amber or Chaos law. Future disputes with interpretation of these articles is the province of the Signatory Entities, or their designated representatives.

Henceforth and immediately, any crimes committed by Amber subjects within the Courts of Chaos will require the ruling authority of the Courts to hold the offender for transport to Amber.

Likewise and immediately, any crimes committed by Chaos subjects within the state of Amber will require the ruling authority of Amber to hold the offender for transport to the Courts of Chaos.

Those areas of Shadow designated as principle to the continued healthful state of these two Signatory Entities are considered adjunct to this Treaty.

Noted as such by Chaos are; those Shadows known collectively as the Black Zone, those Shadows known collectively by their aggregate as the Battle Zone, those single Shadows listed by attachments from the various Houses of the Courts of Chaos.

Noted as such by Amber are; those Shadows known collectively as the Golden Circle, those single Shadows listed by attachments from the various Royals of the sovereign state of Amber.

Any persons claiming dual heritage or legal status with these two Signatory Entities are immediately required to renounce one such that they declare which laws and authorities have jurisdiction over their continued healthful life. Such declarations shall be attached to this document.

All acts within the time of this concluded War are now considered legal and necessary to these two Signatory Entities. This includes persons acting on behalf of these two Signatory Entities to persue the Act of War, and all attendant actions furthering successful continuation of War before this document concluded this War. No such persons can be brought to account for their actions during the time of this now concluded War.

Disputes between persons of Chaos are not regulated by this document. Except where specifically stated herein, rights of Chaosians are not regulated by this document.

Disputes between persons of Amber are not regulated by this document. Except where specifically stated herein, rights of Amberites are not regulated by this document.

Whereas both Signatory Entities have authority within their respective holdings and adjunct designated Shadows, and whereas those authorities may involve laws which are Procedures rather than Prohibitions, and whereas the free travel of persons of both Signatory Entities is allowed by this document, and whereas both Signatory Entities might expect persons of each authority to meet within open Shadow or their respective holdings and adjunct designated Shadows, this document allows that such persons traveling within open Shadow or the respective holdings and adjunct designated Shadows be obedient to the legal Procedures of the Signatory Entities that might apply to those local interactions. Persons who act in defiance of local Prohibitions will be presumed by local authority to have committed a Crime. Final adjudication of crimes will be the first responsibility of the authority acknowledged by the person, not the locale as understood by these articles. If such authority does not choose to act upon the adjudication, then authority to do so reverts to the locale.
