The Ten Tenants of Zaros
I. Respect all members of the Empire of Zaros.
II. Racism, discrimination, and slurs will not be tolerated.
III. Fighting and argumentation are not welcomed.
IV. Personal situations between members are to be kept outside of clan boundaries.
V. Begging and incessant whining are not permitted.
VI. Any rebellion attempts will be immediately squashed.
VII. Impersonation of roles will not be tolerated.
VIII. Spamming any medium is unacceptable.
IX. Leadership shall be followed without commentary or question.
X. Do not demand or request ranks.
Failure to comply with these policies will lead to a one-day mute on the first warning, a two-day mute on the second warning, and a removal from the Empire on the third warning.

We believe that our ranking system should reflect a number of desired characteristics in our community. These characteristics include activity, community, loyalty, time, and service. Therefore, our ranking system utilizes a formulaic approach with regards to these criteria to determine general approximations of ranks. Individual assessments by the Imperium determine the actual ranks of members. Therefore, we do not place a specific formula for public display in determining ranks.
With this stated, there are three major ways to increase the odds of receiving an increased rank in our community. First, members are expected to cap at the Citadel each week. By doing your duty to the clan, you will be rewarded through our ranking criteria. Second, members are expected to be active on the Forums. Lively participation and endorsement on the thread will favorably impact one's rank. Finally, members are encouraged to actively participate in the community discussions and events. This will also be factored into a given individual's rank.
Please note that inactivity or avoidance of these criteria will lead to potential stagnation of ranks or demotions. Additionally, note that the leadership of this organization prides itself in following suit with these requirements.

The Empire's leadership consists of a monarch, directly appointed by the founding bloodline of the clan, and a council of four advisors with the monarch. The current monarch is Emperor Jacksonian I, who was legitimately crowned by the former emperor Eternal Lyfe. Additionally, it should be known that Eternal Lyfe was crowned by the Father of the Empire, the late and beloved Hank Hill I. Despite other government forms existing throughout the Empire's long history, the monarchy has weathered the test of time since the first day. Therefore, the monarchy's roots are at the core of the Empire, and guide it to its greatness.
The Imperium, which is a five member council that serves the Emperor, consists of five veterans to the Empire that help to draft policy, execute orders, and ensure that the community will continue to thrive. The Imperium currently consists of the Emperor Jacksonian I, Lord Bowie I, Fly_on_Pot, Markthorn, and Blacktop Ace. All five of these individuals are connected to long-standing veterans in the community, and seek to ensure the Empire's survival and future growth.

Brothers and sisters, it is with great honor that I rise to the Imperial Throne and become the Third Emperor of the Empire of Zaros. There have been many years filled with sadness and heartbreak since the passing of our most beloved founder, but my promise to each and every one of you is to restore the glory and honor of our Empire. I consider it the most immense privilege to serve among the ranks of the Empire's greatest heroes, Hank Hill I and Eternal Lyfe, and I solemnly swear to make the Empire of Zaros great again by any and all means necessary.
Between the passing of our founder and now, we have watched the prideful, the wicked, and the conceited cast snares against our stronghold. Many that we believed we could call friends suddenly turned into monsters the moment our almighty leader died, and we slowly watched as their sinister acts cast stones at the Empire. Those of us who were inspired by our founder's vision remained faithful, repelling the never-ending doubts that tried to asphyxiate our sense of hope. We were told that the Empire would never see daylight again, we were told to surrender, we were told that we would be forgotten. After so many years, when faith seemed to falter, we survived. We are the Jacksonians who built this community: heroes tormented by evils.
I hold an unchanged vision before your eyes of our future: one of a powerful community beyond measures that we have seen in the past. This doctrine is not new; it is from the inspirational mind of our founder. In taking this throne, I name myself Jacksonian in memory of all of the Empire's true and loyal heroes. May we cast our enemies into damnation, and show them that the grand Empire of Zaros will never die.

Walter Lippmann speaks of men who plant trees that others will sit under. Our late and beloved founder, Hank Hill I, was one of those men. This post is written as a tribute to him. Without his immaculate vision and undying devotion to our community, the Empire of Zaros would never have rose to become one of the most influential and well-known communities in RuneScape's history. Many years have passed since our founder walked his last steps, but I ask that we all reflect on the magnificent accomplishments that occurred under his leadership.
Hank Hill I was an outspoken voice throughout his years with the Empire and even before it. His tireless crusades for justice and his family led him to clash with many during his long tenure; however, despite his enemies being many, his equals were none. Under his leadership, the Empire grew from being a small community of a few close friends to one of the largest, wealthiest, and strongest empires in the game. Most quivered even at the thought of challenging our founder and the Empire, and those who were foolish enough to try were humiliated and obliterated with an unseen display of force even in modern times.
Many called themselves friends to our founder, and those that knew Hank were amazed by the love that he showed to each and every member. It is with a saddened heart that I declare that this world will never see a leader as spectacular as our founder. Some have tried arrogantly to fill his footsteps, only to find themselves falling flat on their faces. Perhaps, it is ironic that our leader's name, Eric, depicted exactly who he was: an eternal leader, alone and unparalleled. He shall rest forever in the hearts of those who were so blessed to stand along his side.
