I am pleased to announce that The Night's Watch and the Dawn Brigade have come together and signed a Treaty of Mutual Cooperation.
Your first thought may be - "But Commander, we don't participate in the politics of the realm!". That's right, Private - we certainly don't - and we're not going to start now.
We have agreed to work together on events, exchange mutually beneficial knowledge, and other finer points.
Here are the full contents of that agreement:

Over the years, the men of the realm have increasingly turned to banditry in order to survive. We hope this treaty with the healing clan, Dawn Brigade, will help mark a move from banditry to helpfulness.
We are the light that brings the dawn
