I currently hold the post of Temporary Hearing Officer, and you have my word I will fulfil that role to the best of my ability and acknowledge the right of the region to prosecute should my actions in that role be out of line.

My word matters more to me than most things in NS, and that is why I'm making my own oath, and not one full of overly complicated phrases that no-one without a law degree or with the energy and time to waste googling them understands.

Gov, Tim fixed his oath. Blake Marks is most decidedly NOT a Clerk of anything. Just because he posted the oath in this thread does not magically make him a Clerk. And yes, Pasargad's oath is nonsensical.
