PROTECTION AGREEMENT BETWEEN

PREAMBLE

The Lazarus Order of the 770 (LO 770, 770) is by no means a new alliance, but sometimes everyone needs to take a break once in a while. In the spirit of friendship and guidance, we acknowledge that things are easier to face through with friends by our side, rather than all alone.

  2. Neither party shall engage in any action or activity which would demonstrably prove detrimental to the other.

  2. Any provision required for non-war related aid will be discussed and evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

  2. BF agrees to share any tools, skills or insights that may be required.
