Subj: Declaration of Non-Aggression

I speak for Elvandar:

Elvandar values its close association with the Kingdom of the West and, in particular, the Duchy of Crydee. Nevertheless, in these trying and difficult times the Enchanted Forest must look to its defences and the safety of its populace. From this day forth, Elvandar will no longer coordinate military actions with Krondor or lend its troops in Krondor's aid.

Henceforth, Elvandar's participation in this war will be defensive. No Eledhel troops will march outside the areas already controlled by the Edhel. The armies of the Queen's Guard and the Spellweavers will stay home and guard its borders.

With this declaration, the following is enacted:

1. All Mockers or suspected Mockers, regardless of age or citizenship, will be enemied to the forests.

2. All Elf Friends remain welcome in Elvandar, regardless of nationality, unless personally informed otherwise.

Elvandar's position amongst the peoples of this continent shall now be considered neutral. Let those who would consider aggression against the forest consider this: the Queen's army is more than capable of turning the tide of this conflict against anyone who would infringe upon our sovereignty.
