Both of these characters were statted in the last month and didn’t have TB warrants. My question was, why would Andor allow TB to execute warrants like these on their lands in war time? They may not be official members of the army, but they’re helping the Andor war effort.
I do think it’s ok for anyone involved the wars to get warrants for taking a side. I would also warrant any person (regardless of clan status) attacking those helping my war effort in my homeland. I would see Thiefbane attacking my mercenaries in my homeland as an open action in the war for the opposite side.
No one knows they're new characters, the only information they're privy to is if they're wanted, or not. To know that they're Andor wanted, a Lion Warden would have to inform them, or a Child of Light would have to inform them if they're Amador wanted, in most cases. Thiefbane have treaties for hunting wanteds. They ask permission when possible before serving a warrant, and in the cases you are referencing, they did ask and were given permission.
That aside, clans shouldn't be promoting vigilantism or the use of mercenaries if they want to retain any semblance of authority in their sovereignty or jurisdiction. Some clans, historically, have utilized Player Run Clans (such as the Andoran Cavalry, Whitebridge Militia, Baerlon Town Watch, and Amadician Army) in the past and included them in their treaties with other nations and the Thiefbane. They've used those PRC's to become feeders for the clan itself, in some cases, as well.
The Thiefbane are not
a justice clan. They serve no nation and no sovereign. Borders are irrelevant to them, all they are concerned with is which side of the law you are on. It is very cliché, but they are the "long arm of the law" and if you try to take the law into your own hands then you had better expect they will come for you.
