The Code of Entente functions as the Cartel's official rules of law. Originally set down by the First Shadow at the end of the Era of Bosses, the Code was influenced by the Teachers of Aekart the Founder and the Wandering Asura much later. The Code focuses on the governance of conflict.
Entente means 'agreement', and that agreement exists as a means to provide order. To ignore the Entente is to ignore the spirit of the Code itself.
