The Accords are the core document upon which the community stands and are written for the purpose of providing protection for members of Forerunner Conflict from threats to its established ideals and to provide a process by which the community may be directed.

The Accords contain a listing of ranks, positions, and responsibilities attainable by members. Everyone is expected to know and understand the details below. Ignorance is never a valid excuse.
