By the sword of my fathers, I pledge fealty to the Watch and to the rightful heirs of King Maxevian. I do hereby bind myself to the laws and regulations of the Watch, and shall faithfully execute any orders given to me by the Watchmaster or her surrogates, without question or hesitation. I shall not suffer an Orc to stack stones, and I will defend the Hold against all enemies, be they men, mer, or beast.
I take this vow without reservation, and shall hold to it unto death.
