The treaty system is a way of maintaining treaties between cities, guilds, clans and orders. TREATY STATUS ------------- There are seven different states a treaty can have, which affects what can be done with them. * Draft - Draft treaties are what the name implies. - Draft treaties can be deleted, edited and approved. * Inactive - An inactive treaty is a treaty that has been signed and approved. - Inactive treaties can be deleted or offered to an organization. * Pending - A pending treaty is a treaty that has been offered to an organization and is awaiting a response. - Pending treaties can be accepted or rejected. * Active - An active treaty is a treaty considered to be currently in effect. - Active treaties can be voided. * Rejected - A rejected treaty is a treaty that was offered but rejected by the other organization. - Rejected treaties will be automatically archived after 5 days. * Voided - A voided treaty is a treaty that was in effect, but one of the organizations decided to cancel it. - Voided treaties will be automatically archived after 5 days. * Archived - Archived treaties are an organization's past treaties. - Archived treaties can be deleted. WAR TREATIES --------------- Treaties related to the War system as currently implemented are handled using a different set of commands. The relevant syntaxes are below.
