The Law of Hospitality
"The Grimmwald Courtesy"



The Waldrian Law of Hospitality has long been a matter used primarily by the Mannhardt Family, utilized in full no later than 32 AC.
It was first considered an unspoken honor, yet has been written down as one of the most important doctrines of the land.
Notably, it has seen use when handling political prisoners, parleys, duels, and other gatherings of fellowship.

The root of this 'law' stems from the Mannhardt beliefs of courtesy tied into the Waldrian beliefs of bearing true faith to honesty.

In other settings, it is referred to as the '
The Grimmwald Courtesy', despite being socially viewed by the Ynslean as most sacred and holy.
A Waldrian's word on this courtesy is His own to give, and with it comes the responsibilities and appropriate thoughts for the charge.
While hospitality may be a generous trait offered by all Waldrians, The Law applies strictly to politics itself.


The Law is as follows:
To any soul deemed worthy of this courtesy, has the host pledged their willingness to protect and to defend. This pledge is to last until the guest is out of the host's domain, the guest breaks the set terms of the host, or until it is overruled by the Lord of Grimmwald himself. The guest is viewed similar to the host's own blood, offered roof, food, and shelter when it be required.
Whether the guests be of aristocracy or of low birth, messenger or knight, this law is set to ensure good faith even amongst enemies or those whom may be against the mercenary band of the Grimmwald Company.

For matters of parley, there is permitted the guests of two, lest the Baron is to permit otherwise.


Upon the guest's breaking of the Good Faith, all courtesies are gone, and chivalric code no longer applies to them or potentially even to those they may be with.
