The Volunteer Statement, also know simply as the Statement, was a legally binding document that Volunteers had to sign before entering the Chamber of the Doors. The paper was placed on a table in the centre of a waiting room with a crystal inkwell, a pen and a carved chest. After the document was signed, it got placed in the box, which contained other signed papers.[1]


All Volunteers signed the statement before a Volunteer could enter the waiting room before the Chmaber of the Doors. Rye signed it after he met the Warden.[1]

Terms and Conditions[]

The conditions to be agreed to were:

  • I hereby declare that I am of age, and that I am leaving the safety of Weld of my own free will.
  • I understand that once I am beyond the Wall, the Warden of Weld cannot be held responsible for any harm that may come to me.
  • I agree that if I do not return to the city within one year and one day, I shall be officially regarded as lost.
  • I swear that beyond the Wall I will not admit to being a citizen of Weld, even under the threat of death.[1]
