Now, bearing the seal of the Council of the League of Legends, the Summoner Tamaccius, venerated seer of the Serene Order of the Jay and the Hawk, memorializes the following account for all time —
—that following the discovery of the dark sand in Shurima, and the demonstration of its connection to the Abominable Void, the League asserted full territorial jurisdiction over the dark sands on 31 March, 24 CLE;
—that conflicting but substantial arguments were presented by the member-nations of the League of Legends concerning how the dark sand might be permitted to be used, notwithstanding this threat;
—that the Municipal Republic of Piltover, the Amicable Realm of Yordle Land and Bandle City, the Teknopolis of Zaun, and the Kingdom of Demacia were granted standing to contest the matter, and the ownership of the dark sand, and authority within those parts of Shurima in which it lay;
—that martial contests were held on the Fields of Justice;
—that three parties to the dispute, Demacia, Piltover, and Bandle City, did transgress the boundaries laid by the Council and enter, vi et armis, to seize the territory held by the Teknopolis of Zaun;
—that Demacia, Piltover, and Bandle City did assert that they acted to prevent a great cataclysm brought about by Zaun’s exploitation of the dark sand;
—that the skies did darken, and a great host of Voidspawn did come forth from Zaun’s mines, and a cataclysm was adjudged to be at hand;
—that Zaun, by use of arcane science, did avert the catastrophe;
—that King Jarvan III of Demacia of his own will did place himself into the custody of the League of Legends, that he might be questioned so long as the Council should see fit, and did give his oath as Sovereign King of Demacia to abide by their decisions;
—that a final tournament was held, in which Demacia did prevail over all others;
—that the contests were brought to a close, with four hundred and sixty-one written declarations concerning them admitted to the record under sacred oath;
—that a final accounting was performed as to these declarations, with full and adequate opportunity for review by all members of the Institute, and it was found that the balance fell in the favor of the Teknopolis of Zaun.
Now hear ye the declaration of the Council of the League of Legends, guardians of Valoran’s peace and final arbiter among nations —
—the petition of the Teknopolis of Zaun shall be granted, that the dark sand may be used freely and without restraint by all nations, howsoever each should see fit;
—Field XIV, in which have been found many peculiar varieties of the dark sand, shall be placed under the sole dominion of Zaun;
—one half of all other dark sand shall be placed under the authority of Zaun;
—one quarter of all other dark sand shall be awarded to Demacia, one eighth to Piltover, and one eighth to Bandle City;
—all nations shall permit the Council reasonable access for study and monitoring;
—that in subsequent adjudication Demacia, Piltover, and Bandle City shall answer for their acts of illegal war, and Zaun shall submit to investigation as to the cause of the Void Rift;
—that the Council shall place sentries along the borders of the Kingdom of Demacia, and that it shall send forth no army except by authorization of the Council.
Let the word of the League be as law, lest all the powers of Runeterra array themselves against ye. There may be no appeal.
