Oaths of the Tong

The following oath is a closely kept secret among the Tong. Each Associate must repeat this oath before they are accepted as a Tiger Claw. All current surveillence shows that this oath not just symbolic in meaning, but is taken literally should any member betray the "Family". There are three parts to this oath and the ceremony is administered by three Tiger Masters.

Honor

If I have supplied false particulars about myself for the purpose of joining the Tong, I shall be killed by five thunderbolts.

If I should change my mind and deny my membership of the Tong I will be killed by myriads of swords.

I shall not cause discord amongst my sworn siblings by spreading false reports about any of them or cause harm to my sworn siblings. If I do so I will be killed by myriads of swords.

Family

After having entered the Tong I must treat the parents and relatives of my sworn siblings as my own kin. I shall suffer death by five thunderbolts if I do not keep this oath.

If I should take advantage of a sworn sibling or force unfair business deals upon him I will be killed by myriads of swords.

I must not take to myself the spouses and concubines of my sworn siblings nor commit adultery with them. If I do so I will be killed by myriads of swords.

Loyalty

I shall not disclose the secrets nor reveal the signs of the Tong, not even to my parents, brothers, or spouse. I will be killed by myriads of swords if I do so.

I shall never betray my sworn siblings. If, through a misunderstanding, I have caused the arrest of one of my siblings I must cause his release immediately. If I break this oath I will be killed by five thunderbolts.

After entering the Tong I must forget any previous grudges I may have borne against my sworn siblings. If I do not do so I will be killed by five thunderbolts.
