Rules and Structure

Military Hierarchracy- A system through which a state is organized, managed, and lead through military doctrine and procedures. An individual may choose their level of involvement, however greater service to the Hierarchracy and its people is the means of gaining status and promotion. The higher ones station the more expendable they are than those below them. It is their duty as a leader is to first serve those they lead so that they can command the loyalty of those that follow them.  The rules and laws exist to serve and protect the people, the people must never become slaves to the letter of the law if conditions change so must the law to better serve the people to the point that the Hierarchracy itself it expendable to the well fare and well-being of the people that live under it.

Fleet Communication – All members within the fleet are required to communicate with other members of the fleet, upon logging in members are to announce their presence in Fleet chat or the official Ascendant Justice chat channel. Members are also asked to sign into the fleet team speak channel, however if there are technical or personal limitations exceptions are to be made. Missions however mainly PvP missions may require that a member be available at least to listen in on the team speak channel if not being able to actively talk back.                                                    

Review Council – A review council consists of no less than five and no more than twelve members  with no more than one third of that number being of recruit rank with the Supreme Commander acting as official officer. (In cases where the fleet leader is under review one of the chief officers will serve as the official officer.)  All review council sessions are closed to all but those directly involved except where issues of management of holdings is involved, however transcripts of review councils will be kept for public record to exclude issues of a private nature in which case the transcript and records will be sealed or destroyed as deemed appropriate. Private records of review councils will be open to those who serve on a review council where similar circumstances apply as a matter of reference and precedence with personal identifying information redacted to protect individual privacy.  The chief officers of the fleet are the keepers of the private record and are responsible for ensuring its integrity.  The fleet members that serve on a review council will be chosen at random by the Supreme Commander and chief officers. (Solely by the chief officers in cases where the Supreme Commander is under review.) It is the duty of all fleet members to serve the review council honestly and to reveal nothing about the proceedings with anyone outside of the preceding even in the event of a member’s removal from the fleet.  A member who has a conflict with being on a review council can be excused with advanced notice and a replacement can be found. In the event that no suitable member from a fleet rank can attend a review council that rank will be excluded no member will be promoted or demoted for the purpose of serving on a review council. At the conclusion of evidence being presented in a closed review council, the council will vote anonymously through the private message to the official officer and not discuss any opinions with any other member of the fleet or review council. Members of the review council may ask whatever questions they wish after all evidence has been presented and may request additional evidence be found if possible, as well as ask specific questions of witnesses that are relevant to the proceedings. Each member of the review council is allowed one vote with the majority vote deciding. The official officer is excluded from voting but may relay votes of members who are not online at the time of the vote. The parties under review are allowed one appeal through a second review council, in cases of a member’s removal from the fleet or from their station a fleet wide vote can be called. In review councils that are held publicly votes will be cast over fleet chat with the majority vote deciding. The minority of a review council can call for an appeal or fleet wide vote as the case requires in a public review council.  In the case of a member being removed from station first a vote of no confidence must be called and seconded then a review council assembled to decide on the issue which can become a fleet wide vote either through appeal or the review council feeling a fleet wide vote would better serve the situation. Afterward a second review council will review suitable candidates for replacement with a third review council to confirm the appointment. In a situation where it is the consensus of the fleet that the entire leadership is failing and must be changed it is the duty of the senior officers to carry out and affect a total change through calling for a fleet wide vote and creating a consensus from all members of what exactly must be changed and how to best carry out said changes. In a Military Hierarchracy rules and laws are only as valid as their ability to serve and protect those that live under them not the other way around.

 

 

Supreme Commander - Is responsible for the fleet, the welfare of its members the fleets direction, and management of fleet resources.  If need be the Supreme Commander must go down with the fleet and may never trade anything for the fleet, the Supreme Commander holds the flag and flag ship of the fleet (Justice on High) representing the fleets honor and glory.  The Supreme Commander’s actions and orders must we understandable to the lowest levels of the fleet. The Supreme Commander is answerable to all members of the fleet and in cases of any questions of ability of the Supreme Commander to lead or the Supreme Commander’s orders must justify actions and orders are to be answered via a review council. At all times the Supreme Commander must place the welfare and good of the fleet above any and all personal gain or welfare the Supreme Commander is the most expendable member of the fleet.

 

Chief Officer - The chief officer’s role is to lead individual wings of members, coordinate completion of fleet projects, and provide checks and balance of the fleet leader. They are primarily responsible for promoting members under their direct command and have free range to promote and demote officers and senior officers within the fleet.  The chief officers are responsible for the members of the fleet, though the leader must go down with the flag of the fleet, chief officers must ensure that the members of the fleet are safe and well trained.  If the leader is killed or removed from command one of the chief officers must take command based of the votes of the fleets members.  As a Military Hierarchracy only a chief officer may replace the fleet leader, in the event that a chief officer is promoted to leader or resigns their role a senior officer must fill the role of chief officer based on the appointment of the previous chief officer, the recommendation of three other chief officers, or in times of need appointment by the fleet leader.  Chief Officers are answerable to the fleet leader and can be subject to a review council as the need.

 

Senior Officer- The senior officer’s role is to continue to build the fleet and act in a troop administrator role.  Senior officers help to equip the members and help add to the fleet bank and projects, manage teams, and arbitrate minor issues with members.  Senior officers are mainly appointed by the chief officers of their respective wing and are answerable to said officer.   

 

Officer- The role of an officer is to act as a troop leader and oversee missions and help members develop.  Officers also manage seeker activities and help improve moral.

 

Seeker- The seekers main responsibility is to bring members into the fleet and introduce them to the rest of the fleet. Seekers are encouraged to work in teams but they can work alone if they choose to. Seekers should always ask players if they wish to join the fleet, they must never send out random invitations to players without first asking them. Seekers are a primary representative of the fleet and as such must at all times be polite to other players and helpful to our members. Seeker rank is obtainable either through contributing 300,000 total points to fleet projects or demonstrate exceptional leadership within the fleet.

Members- Members are responsible for developing their skills and abilities. Membership status is given when a recruit has been active within the fleet for more than sixty days or contributes 100,000 total points to fleet projects.
