A New Issuance of the Covenant The Covenant, an instrument first promulgated by the Prince of Modan in 1663 AN, was the means by which the very souls of the citizens of the Unified Governorates of Benacia were bound by blood and sacred oaths to the standards of the Black Legions. Following tradition, the Covenant is re-issued at the commencement of each new reign, locally upon the conquest of a new province, or else nationally upon the occasion of the commencement of a new tribulation. The conflict with the new empire of Francia and the level of mobilisation necessitated for Benacia to confront the northern interlopers constituted such an occasion whereupon the Command Executive felt justified in rededicating the people to the holy cause of Benacian unity and final victory. The Directive was notable both on account of maintaining the obligations towards the old Imperial Cult thus preserving, however notionally, the vestigial standing of the Kaisership, and also for discretely removing the last remnant of the once voluminous official strictures concerning the state-mandated persecution of Ketherism - thereby marking the definitive conclusion of the long process of detente with Kalgachia which had begun with the Slavegate Convention.

The present rebellion, recently instigated by a coordinated conspiracy amongst the islanders of Florencia, the Iridian Isles and the Isle of Benacia, is not only a revolt against the lawful authority instituted for the restitution of order throughout Benacia by the Declaration of Merensk but also it is an affront to the Covenant sworn and attested by all citizens under the sovereignty of the Unified Governorates. Such a repudiation of the harmonious society and the coordinated state, as guaranteed by the Declaration of Merensk, the Constitution of Drakorda, and the Covenant, can only be considered an act of wanton sacrilege against the sacred majesty of the Szodan, the Kaiser, and the Gods.

Accordingly the lives of all persons are forfeit, be they man, woman, or child, who has participated in the presently ongoing act of seditious rebellion, who has supported it or advanced its preparation, who has had knowledge of the same and not divulged it to the lawful authorities in sufficient time so as to prevent it, or who has allowed to manifestations of this rebellion to occur in their locality. The penalty of death is levelled upon all of these treacherous islanders and may only be averted by prompt and unconditional surrender to the commanders of the Black Legions, by renewing their adherence to the Covenant in writing with their own blood, and through the presenting of a severed head belonging to a traitor who has been more tardy in their surrender.

The property of any slain traitor and their immediate kin shall be made forfeit to the state and may be gifted in recompense to any loyal islander who has re-entered the rolls of the Covenanted by offering up the aforementioned tokens of submission.
