Contents

Judgement 12

  • Assembly: Prosperity Virtue
  • Raised By: Bartimaeus
  • Judgement: The Sand Fishers have begun the slow recovery from the tortures inflicted on the Druj. The Prosperity assembly calls upon its priests, and all those who trade with these foreigners to set prosperous prices and trade fairly - to teach and demonstrate the first tenet of Prosperity. Strive, toil, and claim the just rewards of your labours.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (226 - 10)

Judgement 14

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Alderai
  • Judgement: Honour is a Jotun concept. Negotiating so-called honour duels with barbarians is not only treason (except where Ambassadorial privilege applies) it is also Idolatry.
  • Outcome: Not upheld (334 - 1066)

Judgement 18

  • Assembly: Varushka National
  • Raised By: Nisha Strascovich
  • Judgement: The Varushkan assembly recognises the virtues of the citizens of Varushka. Your COURAGE, VIGILANCE, and WISDOM in fighting the dark magics, wolves, and monsters. Your AMBITION and LOYALTY that enables the Empire to prosper as you hold back the MONSTROUS TIDE from your unsuspecting neighbours. RISE UP! And raise a toast to Varushka and the Empire!
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (160 - 0)

Judgement 19

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Vindictus
  • Judgement: The Grey Pilgrimage rose to challenge the greatest spiritual threat to the Empire. It would be an affront to Pride, Loyalty, Courage, and Wisdom if these pilgrims were restrained or dissuaded in their dedication to spreading doctrine and combating heresy. It is a tragic shame that any theological debate brought about by the pilgrimage has provoked such a combative response from our siblings from other national assemblies. It is in these drastic times that Loyalty to each other and the Empire must overcome these small differences. We urge the General Assembly not to spurn or reject the grey pilgrims. These are Highborn citizens following their very nature. We are better than this.
  • Outcome: Upheld (960 -528)

Judgement 21

  • Assembly: Dawn National
  • Raised By: Darien Numbers
  • Judgement: When Empress Richilde stood for Queen of Dawn, none would take the field against her. No-one wanted their name or their house to be ranked as opposition, nor to question that she was a fit candidate. However, there were fourteen among them who understood that to win uncontested is less glorious than to best even the most meagre of challenges. Those fourteen knights were the first Black Knights, and by adopting anonymity as they stood against Richilde they sacrificed their personal glory, and one's life, to ensure that the tourney was held and that all others that took part had chance to demonstrate their worth and earn their legends. We will never know their identity, or that of any who continue the tradition. But we can acknowledge and applaud their sacrifices, and we can encourage others to put aside their own glory or histories if necessary; to ensure that hereafter no contest of any kind in Dawn is won without sufficiently glorious challenge. Long may the tradition of Black Knights continue, long may they provide us resplendent contests, long may we praise these anonymous examples of the spirit of Dawn.
  • Outcome: Upheld with Greater Majority (110 - 0)

Judgement 26

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Sister Tabitha
  • Judgement: Reikos has finally been fully retaken, all Highborn territory is now in our hands again. Now is the time for rebuilding what was lost - we remember that wood burns but stone endures. This assembly calls for a great period of building - both to rebuild Reikos and to build a permanent legacy across all of Highguard. Architects, engineers, builders, benefactors, and labourers should come together to show the world the Pride and Prosperity of the Highborn.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (501 - 0)

Judgement 29

  • Assembly: Dawn National
  • Raised By: Mordred
  • Judgement: Issuing the following poem: "Whose name should Troubadours resound? Across the waters and the land? The king beneath the stony ground of gold and gemstones, Adamant... Above the shining Semmerlak, an edifice of granite stands, unbreakable by foe's attack, the glorious work of Adamant. O king! Forgive our tardiness, in giving you your proper due, and let express we with this verse our gratitude and thanks to you."
  • Outcome: Upheld (66 - 0)

Judgement 33

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Jericho
  • Judgement: Jericho of the Suns of Couros - I seek approval from the Imperial Synod for my pilgrimage to visit the burial places of the Empire and to talk to those who have lost dear friends and family in service to the Empire's war effort. I do this as custodian of the Imperial War Memorial and the holder of the Book of the Dead. I will do this as an old soldier and priest to support all nations in honouring our war dead and in service of the Empire.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (1496 - 72)

Judgement 39

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Able
  • Judgement: The rejection of the Grey Pilgrims by the Marcher assembly is an act of cowardice and disloyalty. The tenets of Courage tell us to despise cowardice that leads to inaction - as the Marchers have shown no attempt to learn and grow - and the tenets of Loyalty call upon us to build up our fellows.To help and aid them, the Highborn assembly calls upon the grey pilgrims, and all wayfarers of the faith, to look to the example of Permion - cowardice and corruption must be challenged when it is found no matter the opposition. We must help our Marcher cousins to find the Way once more. If their assembly is not up to the task, we will do it for them.
  • Outcome: Upheld (253 - 246)

Judgement 41

  • Assembly: Loyalty Virtue
  • Raised By: Jared of the Suns of Couros
  • Judgement: Pilgrims of Loyalty in the Empire hear the voice of your assembly! Know thy heart but always remember the examples of the Bolstering Bill and Cora Holdfast in helping those in need. The Empire has an influx of new citizens who are liberated former slaves. Help them find their place and their new start by offering what support you can give.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (360 - 0)

Judgement 42

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Cimeies of Felix's Watch
  • Judgement: To recognise someone as an Exemplar is to submit them to the Synod as someone to be spoken highly of, whose Virtuous deeds should be extolled, and to use them as inspiration for others. This is exaltation. To recognise someone as an Exemplar is to submit them to the Synod as someone who should be regarded with great respect, to revere and admire them, and someone who should be held in high regard. This is veneration. To worship, exalt, or venerate an inhuman spirit is idolatry. The recognition of inhuman Exemplars and the idea that they should be taught to human congregations as equal to human exemplars is idolatry.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (313 - 112)

Judgement 43

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Hazelelponi of the Shattered Tower
  • Judgement: Our Empire has Wisdom spread to it from all kinds of priests, whose role it is to travel our Empire and spread The Way. Guides, Wayfarers, Bishops, Questors, Troubadours, Stormcrows; all have their own unique ways of spreading the Way, and are vigilant in their teachings and questionings. The Grey Pilgrims are a new addition to our travelling priests and should still take inspiration from them. To act to impede any of them in their responsibility would be to subvert Human Destiny.
  • Outcome: Not upheld; withdrawn (834 - 424) Withdrawn at request of raising priest

Judgement 44

  • Assembly: Loyalty Virtue
  • Raised By: Asher
  • Judgement: While only the virtuous can choose the loyalty of their own heart, the Loyalty Assembly applauds those people and organisations that seek to inspire Loyalty in others.
  • Outcome: Upheld (196 - 0)

Judgement 46

  • Assembly: Nine
  • Raised By: Empress Lisabetta von Holberg
  • Judgement: Pilgrimage takes us on a journey to the heart of our Imperial faith. I ask citizens of the Empire to consider whether they should undertake pilgrimage - in the understanding that this may take many forms whether of the body, mind, or spirit, unique to each person's path of virtue. I ask this, that we may, as an Enlightened Empire, find new insights to help us overcome our many challenges. As the Throne, I commit myself to undertake a pilgrimage of Wisdom.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (6 - 0)

Judgement 48

  • Assembly: Brass Coast National
  • Raised By: Tiana i Zaydan i Riqueza
  • Judgement: Supporting the freedom to choose your own virtuous path is what it means to be Freeborn. We will not tell you what to do with your fleets, but let your virtue guide you. Both trading and privateering can be prosperous as long as we remember the teachings of Zemress. After raiding, she gave a share to those who worked hard with her. She offered opportunity to all willing to work. She claimed a righteous bounty from the enemies of the Empire. She invested her personal wealth in projects, in her community. Whether you raid or trade be like Zemress.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (170 - 0)

Judgement 49

  • Assembly: Urizen National
  • Raised By: Galene Netherwatch
  • Judgement: The assembly wishes to thank everyone involved, including the eternal Adamant, in the creation of the Three Watchers. We must not subsume our will to inhuman forces, but nor should we fear to act where cooperation with an eternal can support virtuous endeavours.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (80 - 0)

Judgement 52

  • Assembly: Wintermark National
  • Raised By: Jorma Steelhail
  • Judgement: We choose Raknar Ravenstorm, Eyes of the North, liberator of slaves, he that led the recovery of the Bloodcloak, Thane of Stormspire, as the Warden of the Great Raid upon Ikka's Tears. Heroes will march, names made, chains broken. For our people! For Saga! For Skein we march! We Raid!
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (164 - 10)

Judgement 57

  • Assembly: Ambition Virtue
  • Raised By: Ranae de Rondell
  • Judgement: The Road to virtue rises high/Hard to travel, yet we must try/We stand together that we might/Reach up into the very sky. We believe that all benefit from the support, challenge, and celebration of the Synod. A core mechanic for this is the call to inquisition. Respect this process.
  • Outcome: Upheld (80 - 0)

Judgement 63

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Medea Ruth Irremais
  • Judgement: The Prosperous do not hoard knowledge, and the Courageous speak their minds. The Whisper Gallery would have us skulk in secrecy. We encourage citizens to share their knowledge, feelings, and beliefs. Wisdom calls on us to test our thoughts, by sharing them with others. Weaken the Whisper Gallery.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1139 - 161)

Judgement 65

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Pallidius of Highwatch
  • Judgement: We the Synod invite any interested parties from the Iron Confederacy to visit the Highwatch Camp within Urizen at Anvil, so they can gain understanding of the details of the True Way. We further encourage priests of the Way to meet the visitors and aid in their education.
  • Outcome: Upheld (786 - 276)

Judgement 67

  • Assembly: Navarr National
  • Raised By: Brat Umbral Path
  • Judgement: Due to the connection to the vallorn, Navarr briars should not be given the freedom to interfere with the war against our great enemy. As such, the nation should not vote for them to assume Imperial positions.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld by a Greater Majority (14 - 146)

Judgement 69

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Rylar
  • Judgement: The Synod encourages Imperial artisans to travel and teach free citizens of Otkodov their art, provided this secures the release of the Runesmiths the Thule hold as slaves.
  • Outcome: Upheld (870 - 38)

Judgement 70

  • Assembly: Navarr National
  • Raised By: Corey Wayfarer
  • Judgement: This assembly asks the nation to examine its loyalties and consider supporting fellow Navarr in Brocéliande and Liathaven to stay in their homes following the casting of Wither the Seed.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (158 - 8)

Judgement 72

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Lev Unbound
  • Judgement: Inquisition is good for the soul. People of Highguard should approach their priests and other priests to undergo an inquisition. Priests of Highguard should seek out citizens and submit them to an inquisition to illuminate the virtue of their actions and work.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (452 - 186)

Judgement 74

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Raziel of the Shattered Tower
  • Judgement: We appoint Raziel of the Shattered Tower to act as a point of contact between the Highborn generals and their National Assembly.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (436 - 10)

Judgement 76

  • Assembly: Navarr National
  • Raised By: Raelyn Holdfast
  • Judgement: We the Navarr assembly recognise that the briars among us are human, capable of Virtue, and citizens of the Empire. To prevent them from standing for or holding Imperial Positions based on their lineage instead of their actions runs directly counter to the teachings of Pride, Ambition, and the Doctrine of Human Destiny.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (150 - 8)

Judgement 77

  • Assembly: Wisdom Assembly
  • Raised By: Absalom
  • Judgement: Wisdom instructs us to act on the knowledge we have, to make the best choice with the information available. To ignore what we have discovered in order to support and maintain a notion of tradition is folly. Imperial positions should be appointed on virtue, not on unwritten traditions.
  • Outcome: Upheld (160 - 24)

Judgement 78

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Vasili Zoryakovich Zverokaz
  • Judgement: There are no virtuous arguments to be made for slavery. We the General Assembly encourage those who take Asavean coin to suppress slave revolts to consider their immortal spirits.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1361 - 32)

Judgement 79

  • Assembly: Wintermark National
  • Raised By: Elvar Vulfson
  • Judgement: We have Pride in our shared history and heritage between Suaq and Hylje. The Hylje have demonstrated their Loyalty and Courage as has been recognised. It is time for the people of Wintermark to match such Loyalty and display Vigilance and Prosperity though action. We encourage all Suaq to reach out to the Hylje where they can do safely and respectfully to reconnect via this shared heritage and offer aid to them where it is needed.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (214 - 0)

Judgement 82

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Harwyn Hollowatcher

  • Outcome: Upheld (1385 - 0)

Judgement 84

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Vukomir Maryankovitch Zverokaz

  • Outcome: Upheld (1035 - 36)

Judgement 85

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Nira of Cantiarch's Hold
  • Judgement: I am a priest of Courage. I am also an artisan. It is my Ambition to craft a Litany of the Labyrinth using ilium for each nation so that there will be an enduring way for each nation to protect the souls of its citizens and ensure their passage to the Labyrinth. It will be left to each nation to select the appropriate sect and oath. I call upon the Synod and Empire to look to their Prosperity to support this virtuous project through the donation of ilium and coin to Nira of Cantiarch's Hold for the crafting of lasting Litany of the Labyrinth reliquaries for each nation. Orc priests have been consulted and an appropriate item will be made for the Imperial Orc nation to ensure their souls achieve the passage intended by their people.
  • Outcome: Upheld (809 - 126)

Judgement 87

  • Assembly: Navarr National
  • Raised By: Berry Shatterhorn
  • Judgement: The people of Navarr should call out (and not display) any behaviour which discriminates against the Highguard, as this shows a lack of respect for their Prosperity and Loyalty in aiding the formation of Navarr's third army.
  • Outcome: Upheld (78 - 16)

Judgement 92

  • Assembly: Pride Virtue
  • Raised By: Josephine of Adina's Charge
  • Judgement: "Pride inspires others, it does not demean them." People all over the Empire judge and demean briars for what they are rather than what they do. This is a massive failing of Pride and we encourage everyone to challenge any who would demean briars based on their lineage alone.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (227 - 0)

Judgement 94

  • Assembly: Prosperity Virtue
  • Raised By: Luca i Taziel i Riqueza
  • Judgement: Raiding the enemies of the Empire is a Prosperous action as judged by the Prosperity assembly, as long as the proceeds of that raiding are put to prosperous use.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (190 - 0)

Judgement 96

  • Assembly: Vigilance Virtue
  • Raised By: Gaelen Embercast
  • Judgement: Torr Splitroot, Hero of the Empire, fell after battling the Jotun, upon his death, the armour he wore became wrapped in a spontaneous, permanent aura of Vigilance. We believe this miracle to be one of the signs of paragonhood, but we would invite followers of the Way from Sumaah to discuss this with us.
  • Outcome: Upheld (198 - 0)

Judgement 97

  • Assembly: Vigilance Virtue
  • Raised By: Ser Ancel Watcher
  • Judgement: Vigilance teaches us to seek out the blight in our neighbour's field lest our own be blighted. Whittle is a festering plague that needs action. My assembly make it clear with these words, if the Marchers are unable to cure it, then my assembly will do so. Vigilance thwarts malice.
  • Outcome: Upheld (180 - 10)

Judgement 98

  • Assembly: Varushka National
  • Raised By: Belakov, Wolf of Karsk
  • Judgement: We the Varushkan National Assembly welcome the priests of the Imperial Orcs to preach the Way and that of the life of opportunity of the legions, to the former subjugated tribes of orcs by the Druj, living in Ossium.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (156 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 99

  • Assembly: Varushka National
  • Raised By: Irina Vasilova Dukov
  • Judgement: In concert with our fellows in virtue across other assemblies, we the Varushkan national assembly utterly condemn the persecution and disloyalty being displayed to the Empire's briar citizens. We urge all virtuous citizens to treat our briar fellows with the same Loyalty and Pride they show any other citizens.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (120 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 100

  • Assembly: Varushka National
  • Raised By: Goran Sokolov Zaytsev
  • Judgement: Slavery is wholly unvirtuous, however Freedom is a false virtue. We encourage the people of the Empire to look to the true virtues as we seek to abolish the institution of slavery. DO NOT be lead astray by false virtues.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (130 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 105

  • Assembly: League National
  • Raised By: Alfredo Barossa
  • Judgement: The League national assembly congratulates the great city of Seren. We invite Seren to take its rightful place as the fifth city of the League.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (170 - 0)

Judgement 106

  • Assembly: Marches National
  • Raised By: Sister Meredith
  • Judgement: Many years ago, the Marchers made the decision to join the Empire and follow Imperial doctrine. The victors of the Cousin's War lived with the seven virtues in their hearts. The Whittle folk must now decide whether they wish to stand with their fellow Marchers and reject Hate as a virtue, or choose to be declared heretics. The law must apply equally to all Marchers, but in respect of their past deeds against the Jotun, the Assembly wishes to give them that choice.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (106 - 0)

Judgement 108

  • Assembly: Wintermark National
  • Raised By: Severi Jarlmarison
  • Judgement: We the WIntermark assembly condemn the murderer of Alderei as there was no virtuous reason in killing them while they were in the hands of Imperial Law. We call upon their Pride and Courage to own their crime and come forward to face the consequences of their action.
  • Outcome: Upheld (144 - 0)

Judgement 109

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Lady Laudine du'Lac
  • Judgement: We encourage the people of the Empire to welcome and aid the refugees from Asavea fleeing slavery. It recently came to light that these people share ancestry with our nation of Dawn. We should honour this blood tie with Empire citizens and introduce these refugees to the Way and to the Empire.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1362 - 0)

Judgement 110

  • Assembly: Marcher National
  • Raised By: Bethany
  • Judgement: We keep hearing tales of lost dolmen. The wise act on what they know. We call on the beaters, landskeepers, and others that travel, especially along mana-courses and along the borders, particularly of Bregasland, to keep an eye out and report any findings to Bethany or Elke of King's Stoke, so we can bring them back into service for the Prosperity of the nation.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (116 - 0)

Judgement 111

  • Assembly: Brass Coast National
  • Raised By: Iroh i Riqueza
  • Judgement: We find ourselves in a troubled time. Freeborn should look to the virtuous examples of the past to give them strength in this trying time; the sacrifice of the Burning Falcons and the Courageous actions of Zemress aginst numbers greater than their own as well as many others from our histories. We are and always have been brazen and free, we will never bow to any barbarian be they Jotun, Lasambrian, Grendel, or any other.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (130 - 0)

Judgement 112

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Kerem of the Chantry

  • Raised By: Enis Splinterspear

  • Outcome: Upheld (130 - 0)

Judgement 114

  • Assembly: Dawn National
  • Raised By: Pelleas Montrose
  • Judgement: We do not inspire Virtue in using cruel tactics. Glory is to inspire virtue through deed. To write our glorious tales, let us oppose cruel tactics, which demean Pride and Courage.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld (42 - 42)

Judgement 115

  • Assembly: Prosperity Virtue
  • Raised By: Onan of the Chantry
  • Judgement: The Bourse wields enormous power within the Empire. While many who use this system do so in virtue, many others engage in hoarding, and act to deny the Prosperity of others. If you believe a Bourse holder is engaged in hoarding and/or unprosperous activities you should report this to the Prosperity assembly for investigation. Failure to do so makes you complicit in their misdeeds!
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (182 - 24)

Judgement 116

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Shiloh of the Dauntless Light
  • Judgement: The attack on Sarvos and Holberg by Zephaniah's Lament is a tragedy. We Highborn feel very keenly the affront to the Pride of an entire nation. We will not rest until this debt is erased. What was great will be greater still.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (649 - 6)

Judgement 117

  • Assembly: Wintermark National
  • Raised By: Vauraus Korppitkotka
  • Judgement: The Ambition and Prosperity of Bron Maudssen led him to start his own hall, Hyrsthall, with a view of how they could share their Prosperity with Wintermark. Bron and Hyrsthall have provided all of the goods required to rebuild the Aviary of Ishal, demonstrating their Loyalty and Prosperity. We recognise their virtuous actions and hold them up as an example to Wintermark.
  • Outcome: Upheld (164 - 0)

Judgement 119

  • Assembly: Urizen National
  • Raised By: Alcuin
  • Judgement: Medea Ruth was not a universally liked individual - her uncompromising stance on the pursuit of virtue was not intended to win friends. Those who knew her should contemplate her path - both her moments of great Ambition, and where she struggled with finding the path of virture, and apply those lessons to their own life and aiding others along theirs.
  • Outcome: Upheld (44 - 8)

Judgement 122

  • Assembly: Varushka National
  • Raised By: Preceptor Yevanshka
  • Judgement: We are appalled at the Highborn assembly's implication that exemplars are to be worshipped provided they are human. The Way is not one of heathen practice. We subsume our human will and our path of virtue to no-one - inspiration is not idolatry.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (132 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 123

  • Assembly: Varushka National
  • Raised By: Doubravka Nadjaovna Vanek
  • Judgement: We know cruelty. We live with it. We the Varushkan national assembly will take the steps to help rehabilitate all those who wish it, who have suffered and cannot bear its effects.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (132 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 124

  • Assembly: Nine
  • Raised By: Astrid Fjellrevening Rezia di Tassato
  • Judgement: The Assembly of Nine would like to inform the Synod that the delegates for our meeting with the Sumaah will be chosen from the following priests: Viviane de Coeurdefeur, Hywel Summercrow, Clarice Novarion, Astrid Fjellrevening Rezia di Tassato, and Severin Teyhard von Holberg. Any priests interested in this topic are encouraged to contact these individuals.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (7 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 125

  • Assembly: Nine
  • Raised By: Sariel
  • Judgement: The Assembly of Nine directs the Silent Bell to investigate the Heirs of Terunael.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (7 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 126

  • Assembly: Marches National
  • Raised By: Landon of Longridge
  • Judgement: Prosperous people sell at prosperous prices as proven by the Cinderpath exchange. The Marcher assembly encourages Marchers with Bourse resources to come together to form an exchange where a nominated Marcher may purchase these at a prosperous price.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (114 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 127

  • Assembly: Marches National
  • Raised By: Anna Perrin
  • Judgement: Lily Guildenstern is making the breadbasket available to all those wishing to celebrate Marcher traditions and beliefs at fayre or fete or upcoming wassail. Use this bounty to draw Marcher and Mournwold Orc from near and far, to bring our community together, so none is left a stranger, and all can benefit from closer ties between market town and households.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (114 - 0); Primacy

Judgement 128

  • Assembly: Marches National
  • Raised By: Elspeth of Pickham
  • Judgement: Those who serve the Empire by providing food and drink for Prosperous rates are every bit as virtuous and valuable to the Empire as those who fight or shout. A full stomach is a sound foundation for virtue.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (110 - 0); Primacy

Mandate

The following mandates were passed during the Summer Solstice. Where there are competing mandates, the one that passes with the largest margin is successful and all other competing mandates are considered to have failed.

Judgement 4

  • Assembly: Highguard National
  • Raised By: Ain of the Shattered Tower
  • Judgement: A virtuous life leads the faithful to further righteous action but vile behaviour spreads just as easily if not checked. Blasphemy, idolatry, and heresy have been allowed to spread unchecked through the Empire for too long. We send Vashti of the Shattered Tower with 50 doses of liao to commit every citizen in Highguard to the struggle to eradicate the seeds of corruption from the Empire before they can flourish.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (560 - 14). Enacted. The current reduction in attendance in Highborn congregations will cease; for the coming year statements of principle in the Highborn Assembly that do not directly address matters of orthodoxy and false beliefs in the Empire will be significantly less likely to result in a mandate.
  • Notes: The opportunity is detailed here

Judgement 5

  • Assembly: Loyalty Virtue
  • Raised By: Anastasiya Volkov
  • Judgement: We urge pilgrims to know their heart and what commands its devotion above all else. We send Anastasiya Volkov with 75 doses of liao to warn pilgrims against those who seek to compel their loyalty and urge them to keep faith with those they are loyal to, whatever it takes.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (233- 18). Enacted. Has far-reaching implications for the Synod and the Loyalty assembly.
  • Notes: The opportunity is detailed here

Judgement 6

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Kaspar Yakovitch von Holberg
  • Judgement: The Sand Fishers are entirely without Ambition, Courage or Pride. They lack the strength of character the virtues provide, they will never prosper without them. We send Kaspar Yakovitch von Holberg with 25 doses of liao to teach the Sand Fishers of Misericorde the Seven Virtues.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1299- 72). Enacted. Among other things, the benefits provided by the covered market to businesses that diversified would be permanently reduced to two random herbs per diversification. Any future benefits that might be gained by the people of the Holberg as a result of the presence of the Sand Fishers could potentially be less beneficial to the League, and would certainly be more expensive to capitalise on.
  • Notes: The opportunity is detailed here

Judgement 7

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Ophelia Sanguineo Rezia di Tassato
  • Judgement: The essence of Dead Reckoning is an embodiment of prosperity, a system to ensure that people get the just rewards for their labours. We send Ophelia Sanguineo Rezia di Tassato with 50 doses of liao to encourage League citizens to remember that it is virtuous to despise the thieving bandit, the lazy wastrel, the grasping miser, and those who take without giving.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1247- 140). Enacted. The Synod agrees that the practice of Dead Reckoning is not against doctrine. The current penalty affecting congregations in that nation would end.
  • Notes: The opportunity is detailed here

Judgement 9

Judgement 35

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Rafael Barossa di Tassato
  • Judgement: Sanction:Vindication. The Auditor of Senatorial Accountability vindicates Guiseppe Sanguineo von Temeschwar. He acted to correct the previous failings of Senate and Synod and did so effectively and well. His pride in his actions is obvious and well-deserved. His ambition to defeat the treacherous Druj guides his decision-making and I find his actions regarding the idols of Almodin Oktístis to have been entirely virtuous and worthy of commendation.

  • Assembly: General Assembly

  • Judgement: Excommunication. Following on from the inquisition of Alderai at Winter 382, letters were found in his possession which demonstrate he was working with Wendigo. That he destroyed the Winterfolk/Jotun meeting place at Wendigo's behest, to damage relations with the Jotun and additionally that he was recruited by Wendigo to kill everyone at Oakwood Monastery, a sacred place of the Marchers, and to "defile" it. This coupled with his admitted cannibalism, and the vision of him being directed by a beast-like figure with horns and a rictus grin who revelled in the destruction, clearly shows that he was both a traitor and an idolator and that even having been killed, he richly deserves excommunication.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (1578 - 80)

Judgement 55

  • Assembly: Ambition Virtue
  • Raised By: Ranae de Rondell
  • Judgement: Sanction: Vindication. (Escalation).

In failing to alert the Synod to their concerns, in assuming it was acceptable to employ idolators "If the Synod hasn't told the Senate not to" and in the assumption that employing the idolator "wouldn't matter so long as he wasn't building places of spiritual significance" I find Qusay i Kalamar i Guerrato be complicit by negligence to the actions of Almodin Oktístis and escalate to castigation.

The proposal is that the funds be set aside to purchase mithril, to then be used in the construction of a sinecure for the collection of mana entitles Sevenfold Virtue's Reward. The means to control said sinecure would be via Declaration of Candidacy within the Conclave. The Sevenfold Path would further ensure that each summit at least one mage was provided the mana to make a declaration, with the content of their speech containing the reasoning as to why their use of magic has been virtuous. In this manner the Sevenfold Path would seek to ensure not only are virtuous mages rewarded for their efforts, but done so visibly to inspire others; and perhaps most importantly that henceforth Conclave will each summit have at least one debate guaranteed to be focused on the virtuous use of magic.

  • Judgement: Traders are now free to trade from the Bay without the penalties caused by the risk of Grendel piracy, because the fleet captains who dominated Catazar Bay have thrown the Grendel from our border for seasons to come. In their Loyalty to the Empire they set aside opportunities that would have increased their personal wealth, and set about damaging the Grendel shops instead. Their fleets are at half strength for two seasons hence keeping them from engaging in prosperous trade until Winter. I ask that their Loyalty and Courage be recognised with rewarding 50 Thrones to be split amongst all the captains.
  • Outcome: Upheld (576 - 131); Insufficient funds.
