It is possible, as in all things, to take Diligence too far. It is never possible to take a task or project to perfection. There must be a time when you say that a task is finished enough - and call it complete. It is the burden of a Ranger to make that decision for his or her own tasks, and then to stand by it. To stand by it, or to humbly admit error and carry the task on to a true completion.

One of the areas where Diligence is most important is our observation of Atys as we go about our daily routine, noticing changes in beast and Kitin, and even Homin, behaviour and if we see them, analysing them and reporting them.
No one has ever claimed that being [[Rangers|Ranger]] was easy. <br />

<br />
Here are some of the comments of [[Wuaoi Yai-Zhio]] on this subject, taken from [[Rangers]] meetings held between the years of Jena 2580 and 2599, gathered by Ba'Ruly Wiser, scribe of  
+
<br />
[[Wuaoi Yai-Zhio]], and reported here in the form of a conversation. <br />
+
'''Aspirant''': What about Tolerance? If we let anyone do as they wish doesn’t that mean that we don’t have values at all?<br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': Not at all. The Precept of Tolerance is not practised alone, but in conjunction with the other Precepts.  <br />
 +
As an example: Once, one of the Rangers Aspirant decided that he needed to become a [[Tryker]] [[Citizen]] and forfeit the work he had done to become a [[Ranger Aspirant]].  He did this because he was a [[Tryker]] and felt that the Federation had need of his service.  His fellows wished him well, even as they wished that he was not leaving the Rangers.  The meditation for the Precept of Tolerance starts with "You are free."  He had thought long and hard about it and showed by his action that he understood the Precepts of Service, Diligence, Tolerance and Balance. We hope that, once he has fulfilled what he sees as his duty, he will return to us.
 +
<br />
 +
<br />
 +
'''Aspirant''':  So a Ranger could do anything under the Precept of Tolerance?  <br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': Within limits. If that behaviour undermines the overall mission of the Rangers, that tolerance will be minimal. In such a case the Homin might be expelled from the Rangers and his badge stripped from him.
 +
<br />
 +
<br />
 +
'''Aspirant''': Is taking part in an Outpost fight one of those behaviours?<br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': [[Outpost]] battles are between guilds, at least in theory, and the Rangers as a group do not meddle in them. Individual Rangers are free to act, remembering the Precepts. Tolerance is one of them.
 +
<br />
 +
<br />
 +
'''Aspirant''': What if I am in a guild that owns an [[Outpost]]?<br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': I would expect you to listen to your guild leader as well as remembering the Precepts.
 +
<br />
 +
<br />
 +
'''Aspirant''': We can fight in self-defence, and also fight for our guild?<br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': Yes.  But be aware that if your guild is exclusively attacking one specific Nation or religion, that your actions will be reflecting upon the Rangers as a whole.
 +
<br />
 +
<br />
 +
'''Aspirant''': I think I know the answer, but can a Ranger take part in the capture or elimination of an outlaw such as [[Aen the Desert Blade|Aen-the-Blade]] or [[Pei-Ziao the Pernicious|Pei-Ziao]].<br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': The predation of [[Aen the Desert Blade|Aen]] upon passers by, and the crimes committed by [[Pei-Ziao the Pernicious|Pei-Ziao]] are egregious. Killing them is a favour to all civilised Homins in Atys. In addition, curbing bandit gangs builds fame and earns favour with the Nations and the Powers.
 +
<br />
 +
<br />
 +
'''Aspirant''': Would bandits include Marauders too?<br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': That is a tricky question. Those who have come from the [[Old Lands]] to the New but who reject the [[Nations]] and the [[Powers]] – what are they?  Are they Homins like us?  In the obvious way, yes, of course. Some of them seem to have a sense of honour, others do not. They share a common enemy with us: the [[Kitin]], and they have suffered from them more than most of us.  On the other hand they have been known to organise attacks on Homins of the Nations and adherents of the Powers. Tolerance only extends so far.<br />
 +
Yet, we must compare their attacks on Homins to those of extremist adherents of the Nations. [[Fyros]] may attack the [[Matis]] capital, and [[Matis]] invade the Desert. Extremists of a Nation may even wage civil war. We cannot tolerate all that they do, but if we are fighting [[Kitin|Kitins]] and [[Marauders]] are helping us, we should accept their help and fight beside them. We must judge our reaction based on theirs.
 +
<br />
 +
<br />
 +
'''Aspirant''': What if two groups are claiming supremacy within a Nation?<br />
 +
'''Wuaoi''': In that case, Rangers will stay out of that fight and hope to broker a peace through diplomacy. There is a fine line between insurrection and banditry -- it is hard to measure its width, but we must try.
 
<br />
 
<br />
 
<br />
 
<br />
 
+
'''Aspirant''': What if I saw a Ranger attacking a digger in the Prime Roots?<br />
<big><big>'''Third day.'''''</big></big>  
+
'''Wuaoi''': That would not be a matter for the Rangers as an organisation, but a matter for your individual action.
 
<br />
 
<br />
 
<br />
 
<br />
'''Aspirant''': I see that Diligence is a Principle. But isn't it obvious that we have to complete the tasks that have been prescribed to us? <br />
+
'''Aspirant''': I would defend the digger. Tolerance is one thing, but some actions I could not condone.<br />
'''No rest until the work is done. '''Yes, it's obvious when you've been given a task. But the principle of Due Diligence is of the utmost importance when you have assigned this task to yourself. <br />
+
'''Wuaoi''': I would applaud that decision. It agrees with my personal opinion. It is not our business in general to police the actions of our comrades, but neither is Tolerance without limits. If you were to see the same Ranger attacking Homins again and again, especially if they were always of the same alignment, I would encourage you to report it to [[Melga Folgore]], who is in charge of our relations with the Nations and Powers. He might say that individual actions are not our problem, or he might decide that further action is needed. ''Membership in the Rangers is not a right, but a privilege, and it can be revoked.''
Such a task, no one else but you will know that you have completed it - but YOU will know. <br />
 
We can, as in everything else, push Diligence too far. It is never possible to carry out a task or project to perfection. There comes a time when you have to decide that the task is sufficiently advanced and consider it completed. It is the burden of a Ranger to make this decision for the tasks he has given himself and to stick to them. Stick to it or admit, humbly, that you have made a mistake and take up the task again to bring it to its true end.  <br />
 
One of the areas where Diligence is most important is our observation of Atys as we go about our daily routines. We must remain on alert to capture any changes in the behaviour of wild animals, kitins or even homins and, as soon as they are captured, analyze and report them.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': What about Tolerance? If we let anyone do anything, doesn't that mean we don't adhere to any values? <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': Not at all. The Principle of Tolerance does not apply alone but in conjunction with the other Precepts.  <br />
 
Let me give you an example: a Ranger Aspirant decided one day that he needed to become a [[Tryker] citizen and lost all the work he had to do to become an Aspirant. He did this because he was a sap [[tryker]] and felt that the Federation needed his services. His companions, although not wishing him to leave the [[Ranger]s, wished him good luck. In fact, his decision was made after he had thought long and hard about the '''You are free''' that opens the meditation on the Precept of Tolerance and demonstrated through it that he fully understood the Precepts of Service, Diligence, Tolerance and Libra. We hope that, once he has fulfilled what he considers his duty, he will come back to us.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': So a [[Rangers|Ranger]] could do anything according to the Principle of Tolerance?  <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': Within certain limits. If this behaviour undermines the overall mission of the [[Rangers]], then tolerance will be minimal. In this case, the homin could be expelled from the Rangers and his badge torn off.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': Is taking part in Outpost Battles part of these behaviours? <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': The battles for [[Outpost]] are fought between guilds, at least in theory, and the [[Rangers]] as a group do not get involved. Each Ranger as an individual is free to act, while remembering the Precepts. Tolerance is one of them.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': What if I am part of a guild that has a Foreword? <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': I would expect you to listen to your Chief of [[Guild]] and remember the Precepts.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': We can fight to defend ourselves but also fight for our [[Guild|guild]] ?<br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': Yes, but with the understanding that if your guild focuses its attacks on a single nation or religion, its actions will have an impact on the [[Rangers]] as a whole.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': I think I know the answer, but can a [[Rangers|Ranger]] participate in the capture or elimination of outlaws like [[ Aen the Desert Blade | Aen]] or [[ Pei-Ziao the Pernicious | Pei-Ziao ]]. <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': The predation of [[ Aen the Desert Blade | Aen]] on passers-by and the crimes committed by [[ Pei-Ziao the Pernicious | Pei-Ziao ]] are flagrant. Killing them is a service to all civilized homins of Atys. In addition, the fight against bandit gangs improves the reputation of the Nations and Powers and makes it possible to obtain services from them.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': Does the term bandits include the [[Marauders]] ?<br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': That's a trick question. Those who, fleeing the [[Old Lands]], have nevertheless rejected the Nations and Powers of the New Lands, what are they? Are they homins like us?  In an obvious way, yes, of course. Some seem to have a certain sense of honour, others do not. They have one enemy in common with us: the[Kitin|Kitins], whose actions have made them suffer more than most of us. On the other hand, they are known to organize attacks on Nation nationals and zealots of the Powers. The Tolerance extends only until then. <br />
 
Nevertheless, we must compare their attacks against homins with those of United Nations extremists. Fyros] could attack the capital of the Matis and Matis invade the Burning Desert. Extremists could even start a civil war. We cannot tolerate all their behaviour, but if we fight [[Kitin|Kitins]] and [[Marauders]] help us, we should accept their help and fight alongside them. We must decide on our actions with them on a case-by-case basis, based on theirs.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': And if two groups claim supremacy within a Nation? <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': In this case, the [[Rangers|Ranger]] will have to stay out of the fighting and work towards a diplomatic solution. There is a thin line between insurgency and banditry - it is difficult to measure the extent of it, but we must try.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': What if I see a [[Rangers|Ranger]] attacking a driller in the Roots Awards? <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': It would not concern the [[Rangers]] as an organization, but would involve your individual action.
 
 
 
 
 
'''Aspirant''': I would defend the driller. Tolerance is one thing, but there are things I can't support. <br />
 
'''Wuaoi''': I would applaud this decision. This is in line with my personal opinion. It is not generally up to us to police our comrades, but Tolerance is not without limits. If you were to see the same [[Rangers|Ranger]] attacking the homins over and over again, especially if they are still homins of the same allegiance, I would encourage you to report this to [[ Melga Folgore ]], who is in charge of relations with the Nations and Powers. He may say that individual actions are not our problem or he may decide that we need to go further. Membership in the [[Rangers|Ranger]] is not a right but a privilege and can be revoked.

No one ever claimed that being a Ranger was easy.

Wuaoi Yai-Zhio



Here are some of Wuaoi Yai-Zhio's comments on this subject, taken from Ranger assemblies held between the years of Jena 2580 and 2599, gathered by Ba'Ruly Wiser, Wuaoi Yai-Zhio's scribe, and reported here in the form of a conversation.


Third day.


Aspirant: I see that Diligence is a Precept. Isn’t it obvious that you should complete a job you have been given?
Wuaoi: "Never rest until the job is done." Yes, that is obvious when you are assigned a job. But the Precept of Diligence is most important when the task is one that you have assigned to yourself?
Then no one but yourself will know if you completed it ... but YOU will know.

It is possible, as in all things, to take Diligence too far. It is never possible to take a task or project to perfection. There must be a time when you say that a task is finished enough - and call it complete. It is the burden of a Ranger to make that decision for his or her own tasks, and then to stand by it. To stand by it, or to humbly admit error and carry the task on to a true completion. One of the areas where Diligence is most important is our observation of Atys as we go about our daily routine, noticing changes in beast and Kitin, and even Homin, behaviour and if we see them, analysing them and reporting them.

Aspirant: What about Tolerance? If we let anyone do as they wish doesn’t that mean that we don’t have values at all?
Wuaoi: Not at all. The Precept of Tolerance is not practised alone, but in conjunction with the other Precepts.
As an example: Once, one of the Rangers Aspirant decided that he needed to become a Tryker Citizen and forfeit the work he had done to become a Ranger Aspirant.

The meditation for the Precept of Tolerance starts with "You are free."

We hope that, once he has fulfilled what he sees as his duty, he will return to us.
