The Ten Covenants (
The word Aschente came from the two words Aschete, a word to honor the dead during the Great War and Aschent, which was a consent between races.
It is to note that, when a Race Representative bets their own Race Piece and loses it, their rights to be protected and operate under the Ten Covenants will be voided and no rules may restrict them from going against the pledges. There are not yet people nor race to be stripped off from the right of the pledges.
- All murder, war, and robbery are forbidden in this world.
- All conflict in this world will be resolved through games.
- In games, each player will bet something that they agree is of equal value.
- As long as it doesn't violate pledge three, anything may be bet, and any game may be played.
- The challenged party has the right to decide the rules of the game.
- Any bets made in accordance with the pledges must be upheld.
- Conflicts between groups will be conducted by designated representatives with absolute authority.
- Being caught cheating during a game is grounds for an instant loss.
- In the name of god, the previous rules may never be changed.
- Let's all have fun and play together!
- Rule 8 can be ignored by expert strategists/cheaters.
- 『 』 is notably good at this, even telling everyone else how others cheat.
- The Beastmen use their superior hearing to hear whispers inaudible to humans.
- Psyching out opponents is allowed.
- Rule 2 does not imply to insults, allowing races to still be snide to each other.
- Slapping someone in anger is still permitting as Steph attempted to do when Sora insulted her grandfather.
- Rule 6 only applies to when the person is alive.
- Steph's grandfather got around keeping his promise not to tell about video games by leaving a post-mortem message.
- Rule 10 seems to get ignored by everyone, despite Tet explicitly putting it in to make everyone realize the rules are to help them get along.
- Rule 5 cannot be enforced if it's impossible. For example Sora's prize for beating Steph was for her to fall in love with him; as this can't happen unnaturally, it had to happen gradually of Steph's own will, though it should be noted that infatuation, while subtly different from love was similar enough to count as a substitute.
