Judgement 75

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Sammual
  • Judgement: That the vote to create the Golden Bridge via Summer magic was not done with all the pertinent information.
    That in Conclave, the issue that Eleonaris in this construction was confirmed means that this Senator misinformed Senate.
    This squanders the Prosperity of the Empire, it lacks Courage in not telling the truth.
    This Motion must be vetoed.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld (364 - 504)

Statement of Principle

The following statements of principle were presented to the assemblies of the Imperial Synod. Nineteen of these statements achieved a Greater Majority, meaning they will be distributed to appropriate assemblies.

Judgement 9

Judgement 12

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Severin Teyhard von Holberg
  • Judgement: Can souls fly free of the Labyrinth of cross the Howling Abyss when the body is in chains? I ask every priest of the Synod to lead the foreign nation of Axos to outlaw slavery. To gather resources, and use their influence to further this aim. The opportunity is before us now - 100 wains each of mithril, weirwood and white granite will enable Axos to act decisively and swiftly to outlaw slavery. 300 wains of resources is insignificant when measured against the lives of generations of slaves.
    Let us act with Ambition, let us act with Benevolence.
  • Outcome: Not upheld, withdrawn at the request of the raising priest (245 - 84 when withdrawn).

Judgement 13

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Bartimaeus
  • Judgement: The rebuilding of the Lake at the Vigilant Swan is a message to all that there is nothing the Druj can take from us. Souls will be reborn, and anything else can be rebuilt and improved. Death to the Druj.
  • Outcome: Upheld (264 - 0).

Judgement 16

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Chandrenos
  • Judgement: Imperial citizens should lead virtuous lives; they should have virtuous deaths. Any Imperial citizen who finds their home occupied by forces hostile to the Way must follow in the footsteps of Thrace and rebel against their oppressors, destroy their supply lines, harass their troops, and assist Imperial armies in driving them out. Citizens who perish do so for the Empire and the Way. The Synod recognises their sacrifice. A virtuous death will speed their spirit through the Labyrinth of Ages or their soul across the Howling Abyss.
  • Outcome: Upheld (758 - 498).

Judgement 22

  • Assembly: Navarr National
  • Raised By: Aniera Exile’s End

Judgement 30

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Jericho
  • Judgement: Priests and Mages of the Empire! You have the ability to Insight and Detect magic. Use these on those that are seeking Imperial positions - for the safety of the Empire. Those who have Imperial positions carry great responsibility. We do not want them to be under malign effects.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1245 - 44).

Judgement 32

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Aarne Ceorling
  • Judgement: The actions of Aarne Ceorling, Gatekeeper of Vigilance, in treating with The Whisper Gallery to obtain evidence to further our understanding of The Way, were motivated by Virtue. Whatever the outcome of his trial for treason, the Imperial Synod should make use of the evidence so obtained.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld (328 - 627).

Judgement 34

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Lev Unbound
  • Judgement: The unique qualification for a Paragon is that they transcended the Labyrinth. The signs are a helpful tool that allows the virtuous to identify such souls so that we might inspire ourselves by their actions.
    The signs of Paragon should not inform our actions. Virtue should. To purposefully imitate the signs alone is misguided.
  • Outcome: Upheld (697 - 353).

Judgement 40

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Sela of the Suns of Courous.
  • Judgement: Citizens of Reikos, be Vigilant should you find any Spider Jars. Report the location and do not approach without a mage. If possible the Jar should be boxed and sent to Sybela Cross Physic Hall. Otherwise, report the location.

Judgement 45

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Absalom
  • Judgement:The armies of Highguard - The Granite Pillar, The Seventh Wave and the Valiant Pegasus - have fought many wars against the enemies of the Empire. But no foe is more deserving of war than the Druj. The Highguard Assembly recognises the sacrifice and virtue of our soldiers and calls upon any citizens capable of doing so to lend their arm to the destruction of the Druj in Zenith and beyond.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (456 - 48).

Judgement 46

  • Raised By: Clariel
  • Judgement: Reikos may appear to be reborn, but a disease lurks in its heart.

We must STOP the ROT growing at the heart of the Empire WHATEVER THE COST.

  • Outcome: Upheld (969 - 213)

Judgement 53

  • Assembly: Imperial Orcs National
  • Raised By: Skywise Tulva
  • Judgement: The best long-term way to encourage greater Virtue among Orcish souls is for the virtuous Orc souls to cross the Howling Abyss.
    To prevent Orcish souls from facing the Howling Abyss would deny the creation of new virtuous ancestors.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (72 - 0)

Judgement 54

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Bloodcrow Ergot
  • Judgement: The degradation of Slavery denies slaves the exercise of Virtue.

They provide an irreplaceable good for our nations, showing Pride in our different cultures and putting focus on matters of importance to the nation that can be solved no other way. Any usage of these bodies to promote schisms or disloyalty is an Abuse of Powers and must be prosecuted as such.
  • Outcome: Upheld (649- 425)

Judgement 61

Judgement 63

Judgement 69

  • Assembly: Brass Coast National
  • Raised By: Figaro i Ignacio i Guerra

Judgement 77

  • Assembly: Brass Coast National
  • Raised By: Constanza i Kalamar i Guerra
  • Judgement: The Freeborn take their virtues very seriously (though not in the absence of fun). Our prosperous trading traditions, and our honesty and directness, are ingrained in our everyday virtue. The Broken Wheel is an age-old tradition where the Freeborn perform a kind of mass performance art, showing what chaos would ensue if we did not cleave to virtue as we do. In the interest of fun and spectacle this counterpoint often takes the form of a humorous extreme - an aspect of the festival Freeborn are familiar and comfortable with, and an aspect we wish to help other nations come to understand. The following day all reflect upon the events of the Broken Wheel, with a renewed perspective and appreciation of virtue. The Sutannir of the Brass Coast take particular care to look to the souls of their congregations at this time.

Judgement 86

  • Assembly: Prosperity Virtue
  • Raised by: Vauraus Korppitkotka

Recognition

The following judgements of recognition were presented during the Autumn Equinox.

Judgement 19

  • Raised By: Vauraus Korppitkotka

Jugement 23

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Levitia of Urizen
  • Judgement: 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 the 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 known 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 as Ruth 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
  • Outcome: Not upheld (731 - 361).

Judgement 5

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Liselotte von Holberg

The intent is to give this White Granite to Axos to speed up their outlawing of slavery, to Severin of the House of Seven Mirrors. Use White Granite from Asavea to end slavery in Axos. The Cavabianca Dock in the League buys White Granite from Asavea, a nation that has slaves. There is no use this White Granite can be put to that will not bear the taint of slavery. Let the Synod purchase this White Granite, and use it to enable Axos to outlaw slavery. 48 Thrones from the Virtue Fund puts Asavean “bloody granite” to a Virtuous use. If the purchase cannot be achieved, 48 Thrones will be returned to the Virtue Fund.
