Laws of Ironforge and Khaz Modan

Post by Hutchins on Sun 12 Mar 2017 - 9:01

A thread of its own so I can edit it if it becomes necessary, if anyone has any thoughts about the laws they wish to discuss OOC then you can either try to catch me in game or, the better option, send me a message here and I'll get back to you when I can. This includes any IC questions, just send me a letter in game or treat the forum message as the letter to Sebastian IC.

Any changes done to these laws will be all done IC, if you wish to make any big changes to existing laws (other than correcting spelling mistakes) or add in new ones then it will be a requirement to bring this up IC. Although I am willing to discuss any of these OOC first if you wish.
