A Trial Of Grievance, also known as a Circle Of Equals, are honour duels that are fought within the Clan to settle disputes that do not warrant a Trial Of Refusal. Basically "Might Makes Right" in Clan society. To reflect this, a Trial of Grievance can be fought over anything that falls short of the criteria for a Trial Of Refusal. The reasons for such Trials are myriad; they can be fought over matters of honour, when a Warrior feels he has been slighted by another, to settle an argument within the Clan when all other attempts to resolve the issue have failed, etc. These can involve entire Stars, Clusters, and other units as well as individuals; in this respect it is similar to Trials Of Refusal. Since it is a "circle of equals", by clan lore there are special rules for this trial. (See Special Rules section.)
Once all participants have arrived at the proper server, the Challenger will then join the server, and announce his map choice. Host of the server - either the Loremaster or Oathmaster preferably - will select the proper map and set conditions to their correct settings.
The Clan Oathmaster will be present and officiating unless needed as a participant. The Clan Loremaster will also be present as facilitator and witness that the Trial takes place according to Clan Law.
Challenger(s) will then, once rules have been gone over one last time, issue their challenge, stating their reasons for a Circle Of Equals publicly, before the entire Clan. All participants move to within 1000 metres of Nav Centre, and stop. Once both sides have called Ready, the Oathmaster will confirm, and give permission to engage.
Practical effects for the Challenger for winning this Trial are that his or the units honour is satisfied and the issue related is resolved finally. It is a prerequisite to survive to win the trial.
