The "All Roads Lead to Winterfell" Accords
The Legion and House Stark (herein "the signatories") come together under the guiding principles of friendship, mutual defense, and common prosperity to establish the All Roads Lead to Winterfell Accords, a non-chaining Mutual Defense and Optional Aggression Pact. Article I: There's No Cure For Being a C***
The signatories agree to refrain from any act of aggression towards one another, be it hot war or espionage, and commit to furthering the shared security and welfare of both alliances.
Article II: I Drink and I Know Things
The signatories agree to share any pertinent intelligence obtained through "little birds" or frumentarii, so long as the information is not bound by outside confidentiality agreements. Pertinent intelligence is deemed as information that threatens the security or sovereignty of either signatory. Article III: A Legionnaire Always Pays His Debts
The signatories are encouraged to provide financial aid to one another in order to support the principle of common prosperity, especially if one of the signatories is at war or rebuilding from a war. Article IV: The Night Is Dark and Full of Romans
An act of war upon one signatory is considered an act of war on both signatories. Legionnaires and Bannermen of House Stark agree to provide mandatory mutual defense should either signatory be attacked. In the event either signatory comes under attack via activation of an external treaty, the mandatory defense is then considered optional defense. Article V – The Man Who Passes the Sentence Should Swing the Sword
In the event that a signatory requires assistance in an aggressive war against a third party, signatories are strongly encouraged but not obligated to assist the other by means of financial or military support. Article VI – We Don't Get to Choose Whom We Love
If either signatory feels that this treaty has been unjustly violated and resulting diplomatic negotiations have not offered an acceptable resolution, notification of withdrawal must be given to the remaining signatory within seventy-two hours. Should this treaty be voided, a forty-eight hour cooldown period begins in which neither alliance may declare war on the other.
