6.37 Organisational Charges System

The org charges system is used to charge a person with a crime against your
organisation. This feature is available to cities, houses, orders and
high clans.

When charging a player, you can specify either a predefined crime (See HELP
CRIMES) or specify a custom charge name.*  Once a charge is laid, you can edit
the fine, term, and date. You can also add notes to the log of a charge.

create, edit, or drop charges but any member of the organisation can view the
list of active charges. Only the leader or patron of an organisation can drop
charges with a fine of SPECIAL or a term of PERMANENT.  When unenemying a
person, all charges are automatically dropped and because of this, enemies
charged with a PERMANENT term or SPECIAL fine can only be unenemied by the
organisation leader or patron.
