Tori Zitkoi - Laws of the camp

1.  Every person is expected to contribute towards work around the camp.  Such work would include such things as guard duty, preparation of food for feasts, chopping firewood, setting up the camp, taking down the camp, etc.

2.  Every person takes a fair share of food presented at feasts and other events. This would especially apply to foods which are in limited amounts such as meat and alcoholic beverages.  No seven lobster tails for one person, and one for everybody else!

3.  Every person will get a fair share of the wealth we get as a tribe in terms of mercenary pay.

4.  Whatever property is borrowed at the permission of the owner is to be given back in the same state that it was borrowed.  If the property is damaged, it will be repaired in full or a debt to the owner will be made in equal with the damage.  If property is accidentally destroyed, the debt will be paid back in full to the owner.

5.  No urinating into the fire or the ashes of a previous one.

6.  No kicking or stumbling over the threshold of anyone's Kooshta, nor placing of one's feet on the threshold.

7.  No entering into anyone's Kooshta without their permission.


Tori Kutriguri - Laws of the people

1.  The active Kutriguri should try to attend one monthly battle and most of the spars in their localities. If you cannot make it to a spar or battle, contact someone in advance who will be there at the event.

2.  There shall not be any sleeping around behind your spouse's or significant other's back at our events (no adultery). What you do outside of Kutriguri events is your own business, but at campouts, spars, battles, going against your word given to someone else creates an environment that is not good for the rest of us. Keep your word and be honorable to your family/tribe.

3.  No one is allowed to wear foreign garments without the approval of the Khan or Kopan.  Foreign garments would include non-nomadic horseman clothing and examples would be kilts, cloaks, tights, sneakers, etc.

4.  No disobeying an order from a higher ranking Kutrigur. This applies to the battlefield and the division of chores around the camp.

5.  Repair your own equipment and clothing between spars and battles such that it is completed before the next time we meet.   If you do not know how to make the repairs, feel free to ask one the Kutriguri.

6.  To become a Tesigan (Initiate Warrior of the Chalice), one must have their clothing, basic fighting equipment (ex. Caftan, Trousers, Sash, Boots, Spear and Sword, Sword & Shield, Two-handed Sword, etc.) and come to one war (ex. Ragnarok, Pennsic, etc.).

7.  Every Kutrigur is expected to have a minimum of two years of time from becoming a Tesigan to the time they wish to become a Vatragan (Warrior of the Fire).  They must propose ahead of time a Warrior's Ordeal for the Khan's approval, construct their Warrior's Plates on their Caftan, create their Vatragan Sash, and be able to complete 55 push-ups for men and 35 push-ups for women.  Finally they must perform the Warrior's Ordeal to become a part of the Vatraganar.
