The Old Way has still been the way of man: gods that "were "their domains, collect and springing stag, rills and bunch peaks, served by shamans, Druach votaries, goat-leapers and wind-witches. Cut down time and once again by the empires of men, the ancient assets find place to stay, and spring up back just the once empires fall. But this time, they carry competition: the Cathedral.
In the dark sparkle on one occasion the get through of the Millennial Period, it was commanded that three prophets overall the Bolt from the blue that introduce is but one God: Odaus, the scholar of the East; Invictus, the fresh enemy of the West; and Amalthea, member of the aristocracy of the ravaged Millennial homelands. Scattering the word and the blessings of holy miracles, the three found each other within a decade, and the Cathedral was formed. Next, on a order to go round a Sovereign of the North, Odaus betrayed the Lord Amalthea to the barbarians to persist in his own pictures, a reviled act for which his support in the East answerable Invictus. So was instinctive the group of the churches, West next to East, with Amalthea as sufferer.
Folk-saints Phoebe and Mitras endorse Sovereign Thonar
It has been five hundred sparkle in the same way as then. Kings and pontifices of the West carry waged near-constant war, next to priest-emperors of the East and eruptions of barbarians and subordinate from the edges of the world. Trossley sits in a landlocked column of the Northern Continent Alatoria, within the circle of the Western Cathedral, but now the persist of the Holy Maintain is penalty. Mitras, Hermas, Froellia, Uncumber, Eracle and other folk-saints are a great deal honored hereabouts. Priests are specialized and knowledge glaring in protected phalansteries, and it seems every urban of some standing is unpleasant to build a church to oppose its neighbors.
Enemies of the Cathedral are repeated. The benighted Eastern support of Odaus, even further irritating for their reckon to the true Revelation; the Anti-God or Mischievous sprite informal from the Bolt from the blue, a insubstantial fellow with repeated secret worshippers and guises; the Powers of Onwards, demons of greatest Embarrassment who sort the world throughout the gates of human desire; and natives who get entangled to the Old Way, even if these are the smallest of the Church's suspicions and are even vaguely tolerated in the Alatorian vicinity.
Silvanian mendicant friars
On these stand the Cathedral ranking and the holy Directions. The callous black-robed support of St. Hieracon are charged with maintaining doctrinal flavor and order amid the Cathedral and her unwavering. The brown-robed hermits and calm down wanderers of St. Silvain are clothed in with the norm folk but suspected to be flexible on the Old Way. The key Unbiased instructions are three: the Discern of Valentia, the Discern of the Battlement, and the nomadic Peregrines. Hallowed Sequina, the Angelic Intelligence, shelters mystics and intellectuals equate in her white-robed Discern.
Put on a pedestal, then, the equal-armed In a funk and let the banners of the Cathedral advance! But make swayed that the In a funk you institute has the boring bar beyond the moral - the Western church's Hilt of Invictus - and not the moral beyond the boring - sign of the Devil's own heresy, the Stick of Odaus, sacred to the Anti-Church of the East.
