Law of Stormark
Act of the Althing

AN ACT TO MAKE FRESH PROVISION IN WRITTEN LAW CONCERNING THE SITES WHICH ARE KNOWN SINCE TIMES ANCIENT BEYOND THE MEMORY OF WOMAN AS TEXTILE AREAS.

Most Gracious Sovereign Lord and Ruler of all the Lands Whatsoever Where Man Can Smell the Scent of Saline Waters or Hear the Sound of Crashing Waves,

WHEREAS the People of the High Realm of Stormark have always happily adhered to the age-old Vanic Viking custom which since times ancient beyond memory of woman decrees that clothing is always optional, unless Althingi Law states otherwise, at any time as well as any public place in the Twenty-Six Jarldoms so that the human body, that beautiful Divine Gift, may remain nude and uncovered and preserve intact its splendor and its beauty;

AND WHEREAS there, however, have also always been, in accordance with the aforementioned Vanic Viking custom, certain public places witin the borders of the Lands of the Longships Throne, which are known as Textile Areas, where since times way beyond the memory of woman and for various reasons clothes must be worn;

AND WHEREAS we, Your Imperial and Royal Majesty's Most Faithful Jarls in the Althing assembled, have most joyously deemed that it would be fit, proper and appropriate to make provision in written law concerning the aforesaid Textile Areas;

NOW, THEREFORE, we, Your Imperial and Royal Majesty’s most dutiful and loyal Patricians, the Most Honourable Jarls of the High Realm in the Althing assembled, have freely and voluntarily resolved to, by this Act of ours, continue the existance of Textile Areas and through the provisions of the Act aforesaid also make statutory rules governing the areas aforesaid, and we do most humbly beseech Your Imperial Valtian Viking Majesty that You may be graciously pleased to assent to and confirm as Law the following decision of Your Most Faithful Althingi Jarls:
