(Some of our basic creed can be found on this page. For deeper insight, please visit the Library section of this website.
In all that you do, always consider its benefit or harm upon yourself, your children and your folk.
All that which you do will return to you, sooner or later, for good or for ill. Thus strive always to do good to others, or at least strive always to be just.
Be honest with yourself, and with others, “This above all; to thine own self be trú.”
Humanity and especially your own family and folk, has the spark of divinity within it! Protect and nurture that spark.
Give your word sparingly and adhere to it like iron… Break no oath!
In life, your first trust and responsibility should always be to your own folk and people. Yet, be kind and proper to others when possible.
What you have, hold!
Pass on to others only those words which you have personally verified.
Be honest with others and let them know that you expect honesty in return.
The fury of the moment plays folly with the truth; To keep one’s head is a virtue.
Know which battles should be fought, and which battles should be avoided. Also, know when to break off a conflict. There are times when the minions of chaos are simply too strong, or when fate is absolutely unavoidable.
When you gain power, use it carefully and use it well.
Courage and honor endure forever. Their echoes remain when the mountains have crumbled to dust.
Pledge friendship and your services to those who are worthy! Strengthen others of your people and they will strengthen you.
Love and care for your family always, and have the fierceness of a wolf in their protection.
Honor yourself, have pride in yourself, do your best and forgive yourself when you must.
Try always to be above reproach in the eyes of the world.
Those of your people should always endeavor to settle any differences among themselves quietly and peaceably.
If the laws of the land are beneficial to the folk and family, they should be obeyed.
Have pride in yourself, your family and your folk. They are your promise for the future.
Do not neglect your mate and children.
Every one of our people should work according to the best that he/she can do, no matter how small or great. We are all in this world together, thus we must always help each other along.
One advances individually and collectively only by living in harmony with the natural order of the world.
The seeking of wisdom is a high virtue. Love of truth, honor, courage and loyalty are the hallmarks of the noble soul, (AEthling).
Be prepared for whatever the future brings.
Life, with all its joys, struggles and ambiguities is to be embraced and lived to the fullest.

To maintain candour and fidelity in love and devotion to the tried friend: though he strike me I will do him no scathe.
Never to make wrongsome oath: for great and grim is the reward for the breaking of plighted troth.
To deal not hardly with the humble and the lowly.
To remember the respect that is due to great age.
To suffer no evil to go unremedied and to fight against the enemies of Faith, Folk and Family: my foes I will fight in the field, nor will I stay to be burnt in my house.
To succour the friendless but to put no faith in the pledged word of a stranger people.
If I hear the fool’s word of a drunken man I will strive not: for many a grief and the very death groweth from out such things.
To give kind heed to dead men: straw dead, sea dead or sword dead.
To abide by the enactments of lawful authority and to bear with courage the decrees of the Fates.
