This did nothing to repel the Order, rather it provoked them further to make their presence at the conference in droves. Noted as the first mass confrontation of the conflict, there were complications despite the protective nature of the documents.
The Order did in fact honor the enstated laws, however, they found loopholes. They were sure to enforce the need for such a document to the fullest extent. Imposingly, they made it a point to check each and every gathered crew in attendance for not only ownership of such papers, but their authenticity as well. Those found without these documents, or with any form of flaw, were detained by the Order. This was deemed entirely legal by the Outerworld Contingency.
|Let it be known to all parties in attendance of the San Japan conference, in which the legally recognized S.C.A.R.S. will be holding council, that this document signed into multi-versal law by the Outerworld Contingency shall henceforth protect all vessels, crews, and individuals operating under the auspices of the duly recognized S.C.A.R.S. network. The aforementioned members shall hold the rank of peace keepers during the San Japan Conference. This letter of multi-versal decree has been reviewed by all members of the Outerworld Contingency and by unanimous vote, approved. Any organization attempting to interfere in the peace-keeping duties of the S.C.A.R.S. network will fall under the swift and just punishment of the Outerworld Contingency|
The papers were distributed by means of a looped data transmission from Gautenvalle Castle through the GDN on August 2, 2011 at 6:20pm local Genesis time.
The original transmission can still be heard through this data link--> Transmission
It was later discovered that intel agents within the Order had in fact been intercepting data transmissions, replacing the true document file with a false one at random intervals. The false document simply lacked the Outerworld Contingency watermark on the lower right, though this was very easily overlooked by many. The action was reported to the Outerworld Contingency but such action was fruitless given the fact that responsibility falls upon each holder to confirm validity before putting it into intended use.
