The Star Army Enlistment Contract is a document that a person must agree to in order to become part of the Star Army of Yamatai. Without signing the contract, soldiers do not have access to Benefits of Serving the Star Army and cannot serve in the Star Army. By mid YE 31, all Star Army soldiers had either signed the contract or had been discharged.
Eligibility requirements are listed on this page: Star Army Recruiting
The following are key items covered in the contract:
I, [Character Name], have truthfully, honorably, and voluntarily enlisted myself as a soldier in the Star Army of Yamatai for the next three years (or until discharged). I vow to protect the peoples of Yamatai, to follow the orders of the Empress and the officers appointed over me, to live by the Star Army Creed, to obey Star Army rules and regulations, and to destroy the enemies of Yamatai.
NOTE: “Until Discharged” used for soldiers who already have credit for time served (those serving before the contract came into existence).
The Star Army of Yamatai understands that life circumstances may change and soldiers may have to leave the military, so it provides a way out of the contract. In the event a soldier needs to escape the contract, she can do so provided she can meet all of the following requirements.
