The Laws of Damnation

Postby Stevie » Fri Mar 06, 2015 4:51 pm

The laws of Damnation have been ever evolving since the nations birth. Below are the current laws in effect as of Year 175.



THE LAWS THAT GOVERN DAMNATION

The Laws of Damnation operate in isolation. The following laws that are set-out are the only criminal laws that apply in Damnation (there maybe other minor civil laws at discretion). Individuals who have broken the laws of other sovereign nations outside of Damnnation will not face criminal prosecution (from the Damnation Authorities) whilst residing in Damnation. Damnation operates a Zero-Extradition policy in regards to the laws of other sovereign nations, however if they want to come and drag you back [provided they do not break the laws as listed below] they are more than entitled to do so.

Law I - Murder: The unlawful killing of a sentient being ("sentient being" being defined as a humanoid creature or creature with humanoid tendencies that is capable of concious thought) OOC - All races in the Peoples of Velmaneth fall under this description.

Amendments
You cannot be convicted of murder under the following circumstances
a.) You are the Ruler of Damnation (Currently "Damn") or Mayor of Damntown (Currently also "Damn") [Henceforth abbreviated to: RoDN/MoDT]
b.) You were acting upon a direct request from the RoDN/MoDT
c.) Sanctioned Pit-Fight
d.) They murdered you first (Precedent set in the case of Lemming vs [The Animated Corpse of] Ratcher)
e.) You have an approved "Mandate to Murder Form" listed against the person (Approval must be from the RoDN/MoDT)

Punishment: Execution (Manner dependent on what is most ironic at the time. In the case where an Ironic Execution is not achievable you will be executed in the most economically efficient way) OOC It is common Damnation knowledge that when an Ironic Execution is not available you are strung upside down and repeatedly stabbed in the face by a Halfling.

Law 2 - Rape: An assault of a sexual nature against another sentient being.

Amendments
You cannot be convicted of Rape under the following circumstances
a.) You can always be convicted of Rape, I don't care what the song says.

Punishment: Loss of all reproductive organs, loss of hands, loss of eyes.

Law 3 - Theft/Destruction of Property: Wilful taking of/destruction of another's property without consent

Amendments
You cannot be convicted of Theft/Destruction of Property under the following circumstances
a.) You are the RoDN/MoDT
b.) You were acting upon a direct request from the RoDN/MoDT
c.) You weren't caught

Amendments II
The crime of Theft will be increased to the crime of Murder under the following circumstances
a.) You have stolen/destroyed property belonging to the RoDN/MoDT or the sovereign finances of Damnation
b.) You have stolen/destroyed property belonging to an individual or a business that has a valid Damnation Platinum Membership that is clearly displayed at the time of Theft

Punishment:
First Offence - Fine of twice the value of the stolen/destroyed item
Second Offence - Fine of twice the value of the stolen/destroyed item + 3 months jail time
Third (Final) Offence - Execution by standard means

Law 4 - Assault: Physical/Magical attack against a sentient being that results in injury

Amendments
You cannot be convicted of Assault under the following circumstances
a.) You are the RoDN/MoDT
b.) You were acting upon a direct request from the RoDN/MoDT
c.) This took place in a bar and all involved (Victim(s)/Defendant(s)) were intoxicated

Punishment: You are assaulted in the same or appropriately equal manner and must pay a fine equal to twice the medical costs incurred by the victim.

Law 5 - Manslaughter: The accidental killing of a sentient being

Amendments
You cannot be convicted of Manslaughter under the following circumstances
a.) You are the RoDN/MoDT
b.) You were acting upon a direct request from the RoDN/MoDT
c.) This took place in a bar and consisted entirely of unarmed combat

Punishment: Varies between No Punishment to 2 Years imprisonment - any degree of punishment between these, including fines, is acceptable.


LAWS 1, 2 & 5 will always be pursued/investigated by the Damnation authorities. LAWS 3 & 4 will only be pursued when charges are pressed by the victim. All cases are either heard in court presided over by the RoDN/MoDT (or an appointed representative) or summarised in picture form and presented to the RoDN/MoDT for sentencing.

A diminutive Fey in bright red clothes reads the laws posted outside the civil office. He turns to a group of passers by "Oi...." they turn around "yeah you, come 'ere"

The group walks over and the Fey points at a part of the document

Law 2 - Rape: An assault of a sexual nature against another sentient being.

Amendments
You cannot be convicted of Rape under the following circumstances
a.) You can always be convicted of Rape, I don't care what the song says.

Punishment: Loss of all reproductive organs, loss of hands, loss of eyes.

**The gathering of people outside the civil office attracts a wandering beggar. He stumbles as he walks towards them, trying to follow the sound of their voices. The begging bowl he was cradling drops and clatters to the ground. He drops to his knees and starts fumbling around on the ground, trying to search out for the bowl with the stumps he called arms. Eventually finding it, he manages to pick it up using a combination of his stumpy arms and his mouth. He stood up defiantly and focused his cold dead eye sockets towards the group**

"Sssspare some chaange?"

**After largely being ignored he retreats back to his side alley, turning around one last time to the group**

".. it doesn't count.." he manages with a sigh
