The authority of the Leader is absolute and his judgment and decisions must be respected at all times.

Dark Council


The Dark Council, also called the ruling body, is led by the current Clan Leader. The Dark Council consists of the most experienced and trustworthy members, who help manage and rule the clan. They are the ones who accept or deny new recruits, give out promotions or demotions, manage the forum and server, discuss private matters within clan during council meetings, give new announcements and suggestions to fellow clan members. The council as a whole decides who will enter into the council through a voting process, the leader posts in {KoD} Center regarding the interest in taking the responsibility of being a council member, one must be the rank of Lord to qualify. They may also invite any candidate who fits the role of being a council member with consent from the Clan Leader.
