The Hunter's Oath

So, has anyone ever seen or have any idea how the "Oath of a Hunter of the Horn of Valere" might be worded? I know it's nowhere in the books, but I'm running a RPG (about 500 years before the novels) where this oath may come into play.

I imagine that somewhere in the oath is a promise to bring the Horn to Illian; and somewhere in the oath vowing to not stop searching for it until found or until death. And maybe also other vows.

The order of these, I am not sure.

It always seemed to me that the oath can't be too binding, as no one seems at all fazed by Lord Luc spending time in the Two Rivers, nor Faile herself settling down with Perrin. And Elayne has hired Hunters in Caemlyn to bolster the Guard.

 

It makes sense that the oath would involve bringing the Horn back to Illian, however I wonder just how it's worded when it comes to the part about actually searching for the Horn. Like I mentioned, it can't be too binding considering it doesn't seem like Hunters are expected to devote all their time and energy to the Hunt.

It probably (in contemporary versions) would include phrases like "I hereby vow/swear to.....". I always kind of thought they would sound like wedding vows.

 

(Woot! I finally have 100 posts!)
