The primary purpose of the Idon Raiders is to engage in player-run provincial invasions (as opposed to GM-run "drone" invasions).
Raiders' Mission Statement: The Idon Raiders do not consider themselves "griefers" but simply a group of players who have a passion for role-playing criminal characters. The Raiders' goal is to provide entertainment for everyone involved in their raids - including the defenders. The Raiders hope to inspire a positive response from their victims and to have fun with the many RP possibilities that emerge during their events.
Raider Emblems: Some Raiders wear a bloodstained leather armband embossed with a large black heron or anything else Idon or Heron related.
Worship of Idon
The Idon Raiders view Idon as the patron saint of raiding parties. It is not a requirement to worship Idon exclusively, just that Raiders demonstrate fealty and enthusiasm for Idon during raiding events
All members of the Idon Raiders are required to be PvP Open. The Raiders have a strict "No Report" policy -- once a person has joined, the reporting of a consent policy violation is prohibited and will result in the immediate removal of that person from the Raiders.
The Raiders have minimal structure and are an informal organization. At most, they consider themselves criminals who agree to cooperate for a common goal. They can be likened to "land pirates" that follow a code that dictates an equal say for all.

It is the policy of the Raiders to welcome every guild into the group. Stealing skill is not required. The Raiders believe that a combination of talents is important to the success of any invasion force. The single most important virtues of an Idon Raider are gumption and a desire to have fun.
