Statement of principle

Number Assembly Statement of Principle Priest Outcome
6 General The slaving principality of Northern Jarm offers a bribe to the Empire in the form of “White Seed” - a clear ploy to degrade the anti-slavery progress made by Eastern Jarm.
The Synod urges ALL CITIZENS to be vigilant and NOT to purchase “White Seed”.
Lieselotte von Holberg. Upheld 723 - 153
10 Urizen We send Medea Ruth Irremais and Belisarius Blackheart to counter the malign effects of the Black Plateau in Spiral, using such liao as fellow citizens may donate. Medea Ruth Irremais Upheld 94 - 0
14 General In order to improve understanding between the Empire and Faraden, the Synod invites Faraden priests to visit the Empire and discuss their understanding of the Way with Imperial Priests in good standing with the Synod. This invitation is made with the understanding that Faraden will make similar allowances for Imperial Priests in Faraden. Discussion would only be allowed at the specific places of learning listed below. Additionally, if a purpose-built structure were constructed for religious debate in the Empire, future debate would be consolidated at that location.
Places of learning: the School of Epistemology, League; Seminary of the Hall of the White Ravens, Skarsind; Pickham, Marches; Towers of Anduz, Brass Coast; Chantry of the Silver Skull, Highguard; Legion’s Rookery, Skarsind; Meagenstede Hall, Wintermark; Spire of the Waxing Sun; Magisterium of Antearein, Urizen.
All religious debate in the Empire would be conducted in the same manner as the recent Symposium in Winter 380YE.
Mazo i Zabala i Erigo Upheld 991 - 97
22 Highguard Priests of the Empire should be instructed to preach a message of Vigilance to their congregations regarding Arhallogen’s Ploy.
This message should instruct citizens not to touch spider jars that they encounter, but instead send them to Ptolemy at Sybella for research into further preventative measures.
Tova of The Chantry Upheld 190 - 0
23 General The mandates we have been given about orthodoxy do not have enouch nuance and Pride in our differences.
The National Assemblies are best suited to analyse, and if needed corect the practices of their people when they stray towards heresy.
I encourage the National Assemblies to do this in Judgements so that the entire Empire can witness and learn.
Lady Josephine Novarion Upheld 728 - 175
24 Wintermark The path of the hero is the path of the Virtuous. The Exemplars of the Empire are the heroes we seek to emulate, and the greatest of heroes are Paragons. Gunnbrand Ironwill Upheld 219 - 14 Greater Majority
25 General I have returned to my home in Karsk to find it defiled by a great abomination. The Asavaean Architect, Almodin Oktisis has enshrined in the walls of Aleksandra’s Watch two blasphemous images. Masquerading as schlacta these are craven images of their Black Bull deity. I shall remain on Iversgard to oversee the eradication of these. As my outgoing motion, as Preceptor for the National Assembly of Varushka I urge all the peoples of the Empire to remain Vigilant to watch for and take action to remove blasphemous and idolatrous images spreading across our Holy Empire. Do not allow our sacred land to be blighted. Stand together, firm and resolute, in the one True Way of Virtue. Rooslan Stanvich Prochnost Upheld 516 - 142
27 General Bite, a highly addictive drug, is making its way around the Empire.
This is an unwise drug to take as it encourages disloyal actions.
Iniska Ashwood Upheld 529 - 272
31 Dawnish Dawn recognises House de Gauvan as the pre-eminent provider of Summer Realm magical expertise within the nation, enabling the previous and future castings of the Knights of Glory ritual. Dawn acknowledges and thanks them for their service to the Nation and Empire. Chauntecleer Words Upheld 104 - 0
35 Navarr To all Imperial citizens, let it be known that when someone falls in the Vallorn miasma, they do not die. The terrible Vallorn keeps them on the brink of death and puppets their bodies, trapping their souls, unable to move on to the Labyrinth or cross the Abyss.
The Navarr National Assembly now considers the destruction of the Vallorn and release of the souls trapped within to be the most important spiritual endeavour of the Empire. We call upon our fellow nations to dedicate themselves to this cause.
Raewyn Eternal Upheld 146 - 0 Greater Majority
37 General We request the support of the Sevenfold Path in the casting of Whispers through the Black Gate and other suitable rituals to investigate souls believed to have ascended and so better understand the experience linked to the potential paragon Asher. Edward Novarion Upheld 565 - 122
38 Imperial Orcs Wisdom informs us that we should not heed the vengeful voices of our non-Imperial ancestors that seek to destroy or escape the Empire. For when our Imperial ancestors joined the Empire we became Imperial Orcs. The Empire became our tribe, its laws, Virtue and Way ours, so to venerate and promote non-Imperial Ancestors that are not Loyal to Imperial Values and Virtues should be considered idolatory. Bloodcrow Ergot Upheld 61 - 0 Greater Majority
40 Highguard We the Highborn Assembly encourage our priests with exorcism, the Reikos college of exorcism and the stewards of the dead to travel to Overton in the Mournwold to join with the Prior of Honour’s Rest and the other Marcher exorcists to deal with the ghosts there, to guide the trapped souls back to the Labyrinth, and encourage the Orc souls to jump the Abyss. Naomi of Felix’s Watch Upheld 294 - 30
41 Dawn The Troubadours of Dawn recognise the Ambition of the Summer Dawning Relentless Coven in their continued support of our armies with the Knights of Glory against the Druj. Palleas Thorne Upheld 114 - 0

43 Navarr The Guides of Navarr recognise Brendan Brackensong’s creation of the Artefact Abrexus Strone known as “The Broker’s Tear” as his Legacy to the Nation. It will pass down through generations and its story should be told throughout the Nation. Brat Umbral Path Upheld 100 - 26
45 General I request the support of the Sevenfold Path to commission the construction of a Shackle of the Unvirtuous to be used in the theological experiments of the New Scions of Atun. Lord Marcus Drommond Upheld 352 - 261
46 General On the matter of dealing with Eternals.
We hold it to be a matter of Virtue than in all dealings with Eternals, Imperial Citizens should remember that the Eternals, as beings apart from us, should be treated and dealt with in a manner governed by the Code of Virtue that applies to foreigners.
To be precise - if an action would be unacceptable if aimed at a foreigner, it is not Virtuous to act in that way to an Eternal.
Ranae de Rondell Not upheld 291 - 483
47 Urizen The people of Urizen recognise the loyal sacrifices made by all Imperial armies fighting in Spiral and Zenith. Furthermore, the presence of all three Highborn armies in Zenith shows them to be a true and loyal friend of Urizen. Sejanus Upheld 114 - 0
55 General Raised on behalf of Hazelelponi of the Shattered Tower:
Taking inspiration from our own past, we applaud and support those who rise up against oppression using the tools of Pride to build up, rather than anarchy to tear down.
Malachi of the Shattered Tower Upheld 718 - 22
60 Highguard People of Highguard, take Pride in our Nation, our Courageous recovery of Reikos, and its Prosperity through joining in our Wisdom and Ambition to raise a fourth army in the future. A fourth army will show our Vigilance to future threats to our Nation and Empire. Share your Prosperity through contributions to the Highborn benefactors who will support some of the financing of the army. Show your Loyalty through support of your Senators as they bring motions to build out army to the Senate in the coming seasons. Nira of Cantiarch’s Hold Upheld 202 - 0
61 Highguard Sela encourages the citizens of Reikos to be Vigilant and report any sighting of knowledge of remaining Druj Miasma Pillars to Sela of the Suns of Couros so Caleb of the Cenotaph may complete his ambition to rid Reikos of them. Sela of the Suns of Couros Upheld 176 - 20
62 Nine The Way is evidence based. We, the Council of Nine ask the Silent Bell to seek any evidence of unvirtuous auras caused by cruel tactics alone. Irada Von Temeschwar Upheld by a Great Majority 6 - 0
64 Nine The Assembly of Nine believe that the refugees in Feroz who can be brought to The Way, should so be; and should be offered succour within the Empire. Viviane de Couerdefer Upheld 7 - 0 Greater Majority
65 Pride The Pride Assembly acknowledges that Dana i Erigo will perform penance for the actions that have been discussed in Inquisition. Dana will seek out examples from each nation of acknowledging mistakes and learning from them as a facet of the virtue of Pride. They will report to Jaromir who will guide her in this. Jaromir Dristanov Scovak Upheld 205 - 0 Greater Majority
66 General The drug Bite is still of unknown origin.
It seems not to cause immediate harm, but it would be unvigilant to consider it safe.
Citizens should be vigilant to the potential for danger, and pass any information back to myself at the Ashentower of The League.
Isabella De La Torre Upheld 529 - 40
68 Loyalty Regarding the Inquisition of Skywise Rykana:
I am skeptical of living Exemplars and I was decidedly apprehensive going into his Inquisition.
Having grilled him for over the allotted time I am surprised to say I can believe he might indeed be an Exemplar and will be continuing the investigation.
I would encourage all priests to talk to Skywise Rykana to make their own opinions and also because he’s a very interesting chap. Thanks, Corywn.
Corwyn Leafstalker Upheld 142 - 0
74 General 1. To seek to inspire cowardice is explicitly offensive to Courage.
2. To seek to demean others is explicitly offensive to Pride.
Cruelty is effective precisely because it inspires cowardice and demeans it victims. If it did not, it would be entirely ineffective.
The use of torture and cruel tactics is actively offensive to the Virtues of Courage and Pride.
Clarice Novarion Not upheld 262 - 437
76 Varushkan General Magnus Prochnost of the Iron Helms in Varushka was granted a dose of True Liao as a favour from the Iron Helms.
As in all such actions of the Iron Helms the wellbeing of the Empire was placed over his personal needs and it was given to consecrate the Sentinal for the good of the Empire. The General and Army should be commended for their Loyalty and Wisdom
Amris Johan Merikovich Upheld 64 - 0.
77 Freeborn I speak of the Iron Confederacy renegades who have recently crossed our borders, refused to integrate into our culture and instead taken up banditry in the Lasambrian hills. I have met similar individuals and wish to make it know that as they currently are they are barbarians and heretics twisted by the false Virtues of Hatred and Freedom. We should hold no reticence in raising arms against them to defend our own livelihoods. Constanza i Kalamar i Guerra Upheld 58 - 0 Greater Majority

Number Assembly Judgement Raised By Outcome
7 General We have learned to our bitter cost, the effects of national religious divisions upon the ability of Imperial armies to fight together. At a time when the Empire faces many foes, let us not rush to create another schism. It is the seven Virtues than unite us, not divide us. We send Tarquinius Ankarion with 100 doses of liao to remind Imperial citizens of our common belief in the seven Virtues, at the heart of belief in every Imperial Nation. Tarquinius Ankarion Upheld 515 - 437, a margin of 178.

Number Assembly Judgement Raised By Outcome
4 Courage I put forward Asher of Felix’s Watch, former Cardinal of Courage, as a Paragon of Courage. His signs are thus:
Inspiration: Many of the Assembly and Highguard still carry Asher’s words as a guiding influence. Abbadon de Rondell and Clarice Novarion of Dawn come to mind as obvious names, as well as Imperial citizens across the Empire - most notably Highguard, Urizen, the Marches and Dawn.
Legacy: Tom of Upwold created with spear of Courage known as Oathkeeper, which Asher placed a Hallowing of the Bull (strength of twelve priests) upon with True Liao. Asher also wielded an artefact zweihander called Daring Rescue that encouraged whoever used it to protect those that they had healed, no matter the cost.
Miracle: Asher’s body spontaneously vanished from the Chapel in Anvil, leaving behind a spontaneous Courage consecration of the strength of seven priests. His soul was also not traceable via Whispers Through the Black Gate when it was cast to speak with him after his body disappeared.
Liberation: When Whispers through the Black Gate was cast to communicate with Asher on his death in Spring 380, rather than his spirit or other entity appearing, the Anointing know as the Purity of Courage spontaneously manifested upon all the ritualists’ souls with the strength of seven priests. This did not disappear as normal but has proven permanent. We hold that the inability to contact Asher’s spirit, his body’s disappearance and the spontaneous permanent auras upon the ritualists and the Chapel as evidence of Asher’s Liberation from the Labyrinth.
Recognition: It has been confirmed that Asher was Ruth, wife of Permion, through his True Liao Vision. She was the one who hid the maps leading to the body of Permion with the body of Atuman. A Hallowed artefact brooch belonging to Ruth was recovered, and subsequently worn by Asher until his death. It is currently in the possession of Naomi of Felix’s Watch.
Pilgrimage: Asher, following his vision in Spring 377, committed to a two-fold Pilgrimage. First to recover the maps he hid as Ruth, then leading a band of Heroes to recover the body of Permion in Winter 378.
Levitia of Urizen Upheld 177 - 0 Greater Majority
18 Recognition: Exemplar. We recognise Navarr as an Exemplar of Wisdom.
She displayed Benevolence in spending her adult life creating the Trods.
She displayed Inspiration in the great numbers who flocked to hear her speak and followed her.
Her first journeys along the Trods are already recognised as a sign of Pilgrimage in the life of Thorn.
Navarr’s Legacy is self-evident: her journeys and teachings founded a nation.
Erasmo di Tassato Upheld 975 - 27.
