Ideology and Codes
Where exists the ability to act rightly exists the responsibility to do so.
Responsibility refers to everything, from the state of our camp (not leaving litter lying around or piles of weapons everywhere) to our side of a battle (not sitting back if no one steps up to lead), from our communities (starting a neighborhood watch or getting involved with Boys' & Girls' clubs) to our chapters (advertising & recruiting if membership drops), and even ourselves (seeking help for addictive habits, or making sure our use of time is more efficient). Above all, we reject apathy when it will diminish the state of ourselves and our environment.
Stay true to the four pillars, of integrity, perseverance, awareness, and reflection.
The good of Dagorhir and others before self.
The unit fights together, or not at all. Alliances are decided upon by the group.
When determining armies for a battle, or deciding on alliances, decisions must be unanimous. If in battle, unit members do not fight on the same side, or teams are separated by chapters, they remove any insignia of the Rangers from their garb for the duration of the battle, though their earth pendants and pledges can be worn beneath their clothing.
Second chances are permitted for everything but blatant and/or monstrous offenses against Dagorhir members, chapters, events and/or event staff, the Rangers, and/or their communities.
Members who commit such offenses should sever ties with the unit, returning all equipment, including their Pledge and earth pendant (or if they have bestowed their earth pendant to another person, that person will return it to the unit). Those who step down voluntarily will still be on good standing with the Rangers and considered to have retained their honor and dignity. Those who banished/forced to leave have no right to any alliances with the unit in the future.
There are no requirements for camping, belt sashes, honors, or trials.
Hopefuls should wear their earth pendant as often as possible. The same for rangers and their Pledge. For voluntary situations, the unit symbol is a gold silhouette of wolf's head, looking to its left on a field of green. Again, this is only so it is most easily identified on the field. Members have the option of turning their personal symbols to the unit colors, in addition to or in place of what others are wearing.
