War is not for everyone, reading the following bulletined list will give you a comprehensive rundown on what you can do to reduce your chances of being attacked as a neutral player. Remember, the best method of discouraging attacks is to have a fully fortified castle with at least 350 archers on the walls.
The meaning of Neutrality:
neu•tral•i•ty [noo-tral-i-tee, nyoo-] noun
1. The state of being neutral.
2. The policy or status of a nation that does not participate in a war between other nations.
There have been many discussions lately on the meaning of neutrality; the second definition above has the most bearing on these discussions, as it is the influence or interference of a neutral party that has a defined impact on glory seeking houses war effort.
For the most part, neutrality should allow players to remain exempt from the violence of war. It is in the controlling house's best interest to treat the neutrals in their areas with respect.
However, this kindness has not always been returned, and it should not be assumed that it comes without a cost. Neutrality comes with its own responsibilities. If a player fails to meet these responsibilities then they cannot, in all fairness, be considered neutral.
These responsibilities are as follows:
Neutral players have their place and they are an important part of the game. It should be an accepted reality that players in this game should have a right to remain neutral and therefore safe from the wars.
However, this safety has its price. Neutrality must be a strictly enforced code of non-interference. To break this code would result in a loss of neutrality.
Tip: Any and all complaints regarding a housed steward's administration should be lodged first with that player's faction leaders and, if unresolvable, escalated and brought to the attention of your local Sheriff. Under no circumstances should you vote the contested steward out unless you want to be denounced as a neutral and targeted by the faction/house of the steward you displaced.
