We are asking 30 thrones to purchase white granite and other materials to build a market town in Hahnmark. This would help us rebuild, be stronger and more Prosperous as a family and in turn would enable us to then support the nation and the Empire.

|36||Wintermark||Mandate. No true hero of the Mark should stand with the Iron Helms - those who use their dogs for war have become dogs themselves. The assembly sends Gunnbrand Ironwill with 50 liao to urge every hero of Wintermark to show the heroism that a true hero of the Empire should aspire to.||Gunnbrand Ironwill||Upheld 108 - 68|
|38||Prosperity|| Sanction: Vindication. Escalation of Judgement 11.

|Vauraus Korppitkotka||Upheld 56 - 0|
|41||Navarr||Mandate. Mercy is a luxury that the Empire cannot afford when faced with enemies that seek to destroy it; we must not cast aside any weapon that may bring victory. The Navarr assembly sends Corey Wayfarer with 75 doses of liao to urge the Quiet Step to build on the opportunity presented by Arhallogen and find new and effective tactics for dealing with our enemies.||Corey Wayfarer||Upheld 138 - 0|
|45||General|| Change of Doctrine. In light of the rejection of the Land Without Tears, we propose a new doctrine.
The Doctrine of the Void: There is nothing beyond the Labyrinth.
|Isaac di Sarvos||Not upheld 30 - 1092|
|46||Varushka||Mandate. The Iron Helms only do what is necessary to defeat their enemies quickly. We do not have the luxury of mercy when facing what comes out of the darkness.

As a power of the Auditor of Senatorial Accountability this Judgement passes without a vote.
|Zeno, Stallion's Sibling||Upheld automatically|
|59||Brass Coast||Mandate. The cruelty of the Iron Helms is unvirtuous - it demeans our Empire to use such tactics and it betrays the ideals of our people to fight alongside those who do so. The assembly sends Constanza i Kalamar i Guerra with 25 liao doses to urge our soldiers to reject the Iron Helms and their cruelty.||Constanza i Kalamar i Guerra||Upheld 82 - 0|

As a power of the High Exorcist this Judgement passes without a vote.
|68||Wintermark||Revocation. The Senators of Wintermark have displayed cowardice and a lack of Pride and demonstrated they do not represent the interest of Wintermark’s values by voting in favour of a trade route with the Thule. This route will pass through Crow’s Keep at the site that 500 Wintermark died who opposed the Thule. This is a betrayal of those that died. We revoke the senator of Kallavesa: Olle Markusson.||Jorma Steelhail||Not upheld 68 - 106|
|71||Urizen||Sanction: Vindication. Subsequent to her Inquisition, we believe Medea Ruth to be a Virtuous citizen. Any who believe otherwise should discuss specific unvirtuous actions with Medea Ruth.||Medea Ruth||Not upheld 40 - 40|
|74||Pride|| Sanction: Vindication. Escalation of Judgement 18.
We find Franco i Erigo to have acted Virtuously. He has followed his Prosperity and Courage in the face of adversity, and represented and pursued the Virtue of his people. Let this be an example to citizens to hold to their Virtue in interactions with heretics and idolators.
|Rane Jorunsdottir||Upheld 130 - 10|
|75||Urizen||Inquisition. The Disciples of the Tempest Jade Maiden wish a judgement on their Virtue.

Statements of Principle
The Imperial Synod made the following Statements of Principle:
|Number||Assembly||Statement of Principle||Priest||Outcome|
|12||Navarr||Nice is not a Virtue.||Wyn|| Upheld 138 - 0 |
|14||Highguard||Cruelty is a weapon. In this time of trial, it is unwise for the Empire to discard any tool that can be used Virtuously. As long as the Iron Helms act as Virtuous tools of the Empire they shall have the full support of the Highborn Assembly.||Able of the Shattered Tower|| Upheld 386 - 44 |
|20||Nine||The Path of Wisdom is to ask the right question. I am minded to offer Yael the Throne’s portion of True Liao, so that Wisdom may be served. I seek not to undermine the Judgement of Heresy levelled against Yael. No one is above the law and we support the will and judgement of the Synod in pursuit of its constitutional duty; this judgement is to clearly show the will of the Assembly of Nine. There would be conditions to the grant - in the selection of an independent guide priest and the subsequent use of the relevant divinatory rituals.||Empress Lisabetta von Holberg|| Upheld 8 - 0 |
|21||General||People should be judged and supported based on the actions and Virtue of their current incarnation in this life rather than those of the person their spirit has previously incarnated as.||Odanava||Upheld 972 - 226|
|22||General||Nina of Cantiarch’s Hold and a group of Academy children (and chaperones) will take 25 liao to preach Virtue throughout the Empire, and inspire The Empire to better follow The Way||Nina of Cantiarch’s Hold|| Upheld 1206 - 28 |
|23||Varushkan||That those who seek to hunt the monsters of Varushka, must understand and seek the Wisdom of Varushka. The Venatius Illustros of Dawn and Urizen are fools who lead others to their death and do not deserve the hospitality of Varushka, their leader the Grandmother of Laurel should speak to the national assembly of Varushka about this.||Vukomir Maryankovich Zverokaz|| Upheld 144 - 0 |
|25||Navarr||The Navarr nation wishes it to be known that the Loyalty and sacrifice of the Marchers to their land and the Empire inspires great Pride in us. This stands as an example to all Imperial Citizens.||Tyrnan|| Upheld 108 - 0 |
|26||General||Having been recognised by the Imperial Orc National Assembly, the General Assembly recognises that Skywise Rykana has achieved the sign of miracle for his actions at the steading of return - Winter 380 YE.||Gralka||Upheld 526 - 260|
|29||Dawn||The glorious troubadours of Dawn support the generals of the Empire in waging war in light of Virtuous Counsel. Specifically, cruel armies are a tool to be used against our enemies.||The Dread Princess Orlene Ossienne|| Upheld 116 - 60 |
|31||Highguard||Highguard believes that the Empire is the best platform for Human Destiny. We believe that all those who study and follow the Way of Virtue have something to contribute towards its understanding. Accordingly we reject the Principle of Foundationalism.||Jericho||Upheld 320 - 34|
|34||Wintermark||The Wintermark National Assembly believes that after the sinkhole’s catastrophic destruction of Dunhearth Hall, that Dunhearth Hall’s Ambition to build a new market town shows Pride and Prosperity as well as Loyalty to the Wintermark.||Nils Bardstrom|| Upheld 180 - 14 |
|35||General||We support the Symposiarch in the continuing organisation of sessions to discuss matters of immediate concern to the Synod, with a view to holding each session on the Saturday of each summit.||Edward Watcher||Upheld 856 - 52|
|37||Highguard||We, the unveiled, chose unveiling. Unveiling is the active rejection of the taint of the realms by a lineaged human. Virtue is action, and the unveiling is meaningless unless the lineaged themselves choose to take that action. We are Proud of the choices we have made.||Lilian Unbound||Upheld 282 - 34|
|39||Highguard||The fortification being built in Reikos is a Virtuous undertaking.||Yarona of the Chantry||Upheld 190 - 0|
|40||Wintermark||The Battle of Ikka’s Tears has lived in the hearts of the folk who fought and those whose stories ended upon that field of battle. The Wintermark National Assembly believe that a great memorial should be constructed upon the site of the battle so its story shall be forever sung.||Osfrid of Lonelychapel|| Upheld 190 - 0 |
|42||Highguard||We the people of Highguard, believe that any persons who follow Yael solely on the basis that she is believed to be the First Empress reborn, rather than following her on her teachings on faith should return home and seek guidance from a priest outside of Yael’s Congregation to ensure that they are acting for Virtuous reasons.||Sela of the Suns of Couros||Upheld 284 - 26|
|43||Courage||Hear the words of Yael. I call upon my Dawnish followers in the Congregation of the First Empress who are of martial skill to return to their homeland so they might take up arms against the Army of Husks that plagues Dawn.||Yael|| Upheld 216 - 0 |
|44||Dawn||We think that a coordinated group of exorcists should go to Weirwater to assist the souls in the husks to returning quickly to the Labyrinth. They should be led by a nominated priest with at least 50 liao.||Anna Fetch|| Upheld 160 - 0 |
|47||Varushkan||The people of Varushka are all Vard and all Ushkan. None of us are solely one or the other.||Alderai|| Upheld 130 - 0 |
|49||Urizen||The Military Council should have access to Cruel Armies, Rivers Run Red, Mountain Remembers its Youth and any other tool that it needs in order to be effective. However a campaign is won when an enemy is unwilling or unable to continue fighting. Using these tools in a way that increases our enemies’ resolve such that they bring more resources to bear than the action destroyed is unvigilant and unwise. We expect our Generals to calculate the optimal approach in all circumstances, not to be swayed by emotional arguments and to be held to account when they fail to do so. All tools should be considered and it is the view of the Urizen National Assembly that friendly and civilian casualties bear the same weight whether they are an immediate direct consequence of our action or a long term indirect consequence of our inaction.||Tarquinius|| Upheld 124 - 10 |
|51||Dawn||Although their actions in stealing Bourse resources were criminal, the actions of the Witches of Applefell in defending the people of Weirwater from rampaging husks were Vigilant and resulted in Glory.||Ser Thomas Aurelius|| Upheld 118 - 22 |
|55||General||The Synod recognises Sunhammer Kirrik for organising the Empire-wide Artisan’s Guild as a legacy of Prosperity and her path of Virtue is watched for Signs of the exemplar.||Chaplain Atla||Upheld 470 - 222|
|56||Pride||The Pride Assembly recognises that Gerallt Brackensong has demonstrated the Sign of Legacy in the form of the nightly songs and stories which he began and has continued in his name following his death. This judgement serves as a precursor to a potential future judgement of Recognition.||Brodi Brackensong|| Upheld 132 - 10 |
|57||Varushka||The Varushkan National Assembly support our allies in Wintermark. The rumours of assault and mutilation on the bodies of Wintermark citizens have been investigated and found to be the work of a common enemy bound to create division between our nations. Varushka stands with Wintermark, proud citizens of the Empire, Loyal allies.||Rooslan Stanvich Prochnost|| Upheld 120 - 10 |
|58||Wintermark||The Wintermark Assembly support our allies in Varushka. The rumours of assault and mutilation on the bodies of Wintermark citizen have been investigated and found to be the work of a common enemy bound to create division between our nations. Wintermark stand with Varushka. Proud citizens of the Empire and Loyal allies.||Ylmiska Ferbow|| Upheld 178 - 0 |
|60||League||We acknowledge the Loyalty and Courage of the people of Sarvos in defending their home. We encourage them to show their Pride and Prosperity by rebuilding their city with vigor.||Josephine Von Temeschwar|| Upheld 174 - 0 |
|61||Dawn||The troubadours of Dawn believe that True Virtue leads to Glory, Legacy and Transcendence. Glory is a product of Virtue, not greater than it. Pursue Virtue above all other goals.||Viviane de Coeurdefer|| Upheld 150 - 10 |
|63||Dawn||The Queen of Dawn holds authority over the Dawnish people. However if the Queen wishes to take part in a senatorial tourney, she may do so in the way of other nobles, by standing behind a candidate and bringing her authority to bear in that way.||Tamain Sepulchre|| Upheld 130 - 30 |
|69||League||The use of cruel tactics by any army is unvirtuous. Cruelty is designed to break the spirit and install fear. The use of the False Virtue of Fear as a weapon is unvirtuous. We urge all Synod members to provide spiritual guidance to the generals of their nations that use said tactics.||Cesare Enzo Di Trivento||Upheld 100 - 96|
|70||Ambition||Constructing the physical form of a Horse, and introducing a Horse soul to that form, would be an Ambitious act. Medea Ruth, as a Physick with Arete in Ambitious Chirurgery, and a Priest of Ambition, should do this. The statue containing horse souls should be given to Medea Ruth to use for this purpose.||Medea Ruth||Upheld 76 - 52|
|72||Nine||I ask that the Silent Bell look into the creation of a covert organisation in Redoubt by the Grendel.||Irada Von Temeschwar|| Upheld 6 - 0 |
|73||League||I encourage the people of Sarvos to show hospitality to the freed Jarmish slaves at the College of the Liberated, but to be vigilant to the possibility of Grendel infiltrators.||Casimir Marcelino di Sarvos|| Upheld 162 - 0 |
|76||General||In light of the large loss of life from war, steps have been taken to produce the next generation. It is Virtuous to continue on this path and continue procreating.||Gwendolyn Athansdottir||Upheld 284 - 256|
|78||Imperial Orc|| To state that this motion is to end proxy slavery is virtuous. This motion will make an amendment to the Constitution in the senate section. At the end of the following sentence, “The Senate will assume responsibility for relations with other nations,” insert the following “ensuring that Prosperity is not at freedom’s cost”.
”Prosperity” is in this case is to be defined as Imperial Trade with Foreign nations, and “freedom” is the guarantee to their people not to be subjected to slavery by their nation.
|Bloodcrow Ergot|| Upheld 48 - 0 |
|79||Nine|| The Assembly of Nine welcome Axou scholars to visit the Empire and share their spiritual understanding in the following places of learning:
Citadel of Phoenix Reach
The Library of Mourning Hollow
Bronwen’s Rest Wayhouse, Therunin
Any branch of the Anvil Public Library
College of Summer, Miekarova
The Chantry of the Silver Skull, Highguard
Printer’s Guild Museum, Tassato,
The Legion’s Rookery, Gildenheim, Skarsind
Where all religious debate will be welcome in the same manner as the recent Symposium.
|Agnetha de Rondell|| Upheld 7 - 0 |
|81||Nine||The Assembly of Nine approves of the proposed improvements to the transparency and communications of the Constitutional Court.||Azekah|| Upheld 7 - 0 |
The Imperial Synod did not make the following Statements of Principle:
|Number||Assembly||Statement of Principle||Priest||Outcome|
|6||General||Pride, Courage, Loyalty: The Virtuous inspire others to greatness. They neither demean them, nor debase them, nor seek to inspire the cowardice Virtue bids us to despise. The Imperial Synod condemns the use of cruel orders in warfare as an act of vice.||Clarice Novarion||Not upheld 446 - 932|
|15||General||It is unvirtuous to condemn a priest for their conviction. Courage compels Yael to preach and Courage compels us to other options than condemnation. The penalty for the conviction of heresy is death. As priests of Virtue do we really condemn a priest of conviction to death? We may not agree with her vision, but condemnation is unvirtuous in this example. As priests we must chose Virtue over law.||Rhisiart Ankarien||Not upheld 210 - 904|
|19||Dawn||The Virtuous seek to inspire Virtue. The Dawnish Assembly holds the use of cruel orders in warfare to be an act of Vice which debases the soul, and urges the citizens of Dawn to condemn such conduct.||Lord Marcus Drommond||Not upheld 50 - 86|
|27||Urizen||The Urizen National Assembly strongly encourages and supports any effective action to annihilate the Druj presence in Zenith, and reminds that Loyal suffering under the consequences thereof is commendable. The anointing “Price of Vigilance” reminds us that morals are distractions that prevent us from acting. This life is not a test. Virtue is for the Labyrinth.||Sophus Cascade||Not upheld 40 - 100|
|30||General|| We who vote in favour;
Endorse the rebirth of the First Empress’ paragon spirit into the mortal form of Yael.
Believe her vision of a Land Without Tears describes new knowledge of the doctrinal concept of transcendence.
Understand that Pride in beliefs, Courage in hard tasks, Vigilance of errors in past understanding, Wisdom to expand knowledge and our Loyalty to your own precious spirit, lead us here.
Uphold, proclaim and illuminate what we know.
And call those who name us “heretic” cowards and fools if they so think and yet condemn us not.
|Ser Criseyde||Not upheld 260 - 898|
|53||General||As only human souls are capable of reincarnation and journeying through the Labyrinth. I propose all cardinals of virtue must possess a human soul.||Magdalena of the Shattered Tower||Not upheld 206 - 886|
|Imperatrix Lisabetta invoked the Throne's Power of Custodian of Virtue, making this judgement require a Greater Majority to pass.|
