    • Virtue Inquisitors would be revoked by the appropriate Virtue assembly or by the General assembly.
    • Virtue Inquisitors are responsible for overseeing and co-ordinating the use of inquisition in service of the Empire.

Campaign Outcome

Constitutional Court

  • The constitutional court notes that it would also have been appropriate to give the virtue inquisitors the inquisitor power of the Imperial Inquisitor - to perform an inquisition each season without the need for a vote in the Synod, and in addition to any existing judgements they have raised normally.
  • The constitutional court further notes that it would be appropriate to extend the power of inquisitor's judgement to the Imperial Inquisitor as well.
