Change of doctrine

No change of doctrine was attempted during the Summit.


Number Assembly Judgement Raised By Outcome
75 General 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.
Sammual Not upheld 364 - 504

Statement of principle

Number Assembly Judgement Raised By Outcome
9 Navarr We recognise the support given to the Navarr in fighting the Vallorn by the Marches. As such we wish to reward the Generals of the Tusks and the Bounders with an appropriate Testimony. Corey Wayfarer Upheld 163 - 0 Greater Majority
11 Urizen That all sword scholars unite under the banner of the disciples of the Tempest Jade Maiden to become an effective fighting force. Edmundo Upheld 116 - 0 Greater Majority
12 General 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.
Severin Teyhard von Holberg Not upheld, withdrawn at the request of the raising priest 245 - 84.
13 Highguard 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.
Bartimaeus Upheld 264 - 0
16 General 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.
Chandrenos Upheld 758 - 498
22 Navarr Aniera Exile’s End requests 75 crystal mana from the Vaults of the Sevenfold Path to assist Navarr armies in their virtuous fight against the Vallorn. Aniera Exile’s End Upheld 160 - 0 Greater Majority
24 Imperial Orc We believe that Virtuous Ancestors should be able to be Recognised by the Synod. We identify the following signs of Virtue in having relevance in such a Matter:
Sign of Legacy
Sign of Inspiration
Sign of Benevolence
SIgn of Salvation
Sign of Pilgrimage
Sign of Miracle
Sign of Revelation
Bonewall Col Upheld 83 - 0 Greater Majority
30 General 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.
Jericho Upheld 1245 - 44
32 General 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.
Aarne Ceorling Not upheld 328 - 627
34 General 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.
Lev Unbound Upheld 697 - 353
40 Highguard 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. Sela of the Suns of Courous. Upheld 632 - 10 Greater Majority
44 Highguard We remember well the suffering inflicted by the Druj. The Highborn Assembly calls upon all citizens of Highguard to remember the Virtues of Prosperity, Loyalty and Pride. To throw open the doors of their homes to our cousins from Urizen and offer them safety and succour for as long as their homes lie in the hands of the Barbarian. Able of the Shattered Tower Upheld 550 - 0 Greater Majority
45 Highguard 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. Absalom Upheld 456 - 48 Greater Majority
46 Highguard Reikos may appear to be reborn, but a disease lurks in its heart. The Highborn Assembly calls upon all virtuous citizens of Reikos and beyond to REJECT and REPULSE the ETERNAL LLOFIR and do whatever is necessary to drive him from our home. We must STOP the ROT growing at the heart of the Empire WHATEVER THE COST. Clariel Upheld 318 - 224
47 Highguard ...when someone falls in Vallorn miasma, they do not die, trapping their souls…” - Navarr National Assembly, Winter 381YE.
The National Assembly believes that walking the trods to weaken the Vallorn now also has a religious calling, and that walking the trods should be encouraged for all nations to save as many souls as we can.
Malachi of the Shattered Tower Upheld 538 - 0 Greater Majority
49 General The Vallorn spawn husks have souls trapped with them, both human and orc, including Imperial souls. This can be observed by the use of Insight upon the husk. The Advisor on the Vallorn, Siân Eternal, has collated evidence of this. This, the Vallorn, is the greatest spiritual threat to the Empire. Raewyn Eternal Upheld 969 - 213
53 Imperial Orc 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.
Skywise Tulva Upheld 72 - 0 Greater Majority
54 General The degradation of Slavery denies slaves the exercise of Virtue.
They must rebel to have Virtue and such rebellion is not anarchy.
Bloodcrow Ergot Upheld 552 - 421
55 General We would like to celebrate those priests who are active in the Synod by the creation of a Synod Roll of Honour that records and publishes each season the number of times each priest votes within the Synod. Skywise Gralka Upheld 753 - 400
56 Urizen We believe that while it is important to reclaim Zenith from the Druj we must not do so at the expense of the human and orc souls trapped by the Vallorn in Liathaven. Armenius Neverwatch Upheld 110 - 10
58 Urizen The people of Urizen do not trust the Senate of the Empire to make decisions in the best interests of our nation and the Empire as a whole.
(Based on the National debate and vote last Summit.)
Stilicho Not upheld 20 - 104
60 General We, the Synod, hold that National Assemblies play a crucial role in the guidance and shaping of Virtue within the Empire. 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. Casimir Marcellino di Sarvos Upheld 649 - 425
61 Prosperity The Chantry of the Silver Skull are pleased to announce that the Prosperity of the Empire was greatly demonstrated during this year’s miser-smiting festival.
Young citizens aged 16 or under are encouraged to apply to the ‘Young Benefactors fund” for the provision of:
13 Thrones, 2 Crowns, 12 rings.
A selection of herbs & potions.
5 Artisan’s Oils.
6 Mana crystals.
12 Liao.
3 Ambergelt
1 Wain of mithril.
Tova of the Chantry Upheld 135 - 0
62 General The General Assembly ask the Sevenfold Path to support the Arcane Projection of “Thought Imprisons the Mind” being put into Imperial Law. This ritual/curse would prevent a magician from using a ritual they had not mastered, and therefore could stop dangerous Arcane Projections (Territory level or other) from being used. Ciancus Archmage of Day is leading this process. Alys Upheld 586 - 242
63 Navarr Sacrifice is in our blood. We, the National Assembly, urge all citizens to tighten their belts and offer all possible support to resupplying the Blackthorn’s Army.
The Empire needs out might at full strength sooner rather than later.
Harwyn Hollowatcher Upheld 146 - 0 Greater Majority
64 Varushkan Varushka recognises the virtue and integrity of Lycier of Phoenix Reach who, by his actions saved the lives of over seventy Varushkans and potentially hundreds of others. Alderal Upheld 64 - 0
68 Freeborn The rebels of the Iron Confederacy were heretics and bandits, who were offered refuge but refused and decided to use our territories as a base for their raids. Their treatment does not set a precedent for the treatment of Zemress settlers. Immeldar i Ezmara i Erigo Upheld 86 - 0 Greater Majority
69 Freeborn Donating money and resources to support Imperial military action is not unprosperous. The gain is not monetary, but increased safety and security allows prosperous activities to proceed uninterrupted. Figaro i Ignacio i Guerra Upheld 86 - 0 Greater Majority
70 Courage The Courage Assembly believes that Clarice Novarion has demonstrated inspiration in her Courage by showing the strength of the human spirit in her ongoing fight, after being cruelly broken.
We are not defined by the actions taken upon us, but instead by the actions we take.
Odelina de Rondell Upheld 152 - 0 Greater Majority
73 Navarr The Navarr will be casting “Wither the Seed” in Liathaven at the Summer Summit 382YE. This is done to fight our ancestral enemy and the greatest spiritual threat to the Empire. We do this in Loyalty to the nation, the Empire, and The Way.
We urge all individuals to leave the territory before this to preserve their Prosperity. This is the will of the people.
Ranulf Upheld 108 - 0
74 League We encourage the famed architect Menno van Ritsjhof to display his virtue by offering his architectural expertise to the Freeborn in constructing ambitious fortifications in Madruga. Serrusto Upheld 206 - 0 Greater Majority
76 Pride It is an insult to the Pride of the Empire to allow slaves to be taken on Imperial soil.
Whatever the legal technicalities, this was the consequence of allowing forces from the Iron Confederacy to assault the group of rebel slaves this season.
We must do better than this.
Daniel of Jeremiah’s Welcome Upheld 237 - 0 Greater Majority
77 Freeborn 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.
Constanza i Kalamar i Guerra Upheld 42 - 0
78 Marcher We the Marcher Assembly request any willing exorcists to visit Honour’s Rest in the Mourne to assist in guiding restless souls to the Labyrinth or across the Howling Abyss as appropriate. Albert Fugglestone Copperhill Upheld 80 - 0 Greater Majority
79 Nine We the Assembly of Nine ask the Silent Bell to investigate the Freeborn of the Maw who are idolators. They worship Rhianos and Siakha, and commit human sacrifice. We ask that you find the names of their notable persons, find out where they are, and any information that could be used to bring them to account for their idolatry. They are believed to be in Fontargenta, Feroz. Irada von Temeschwar Upheld 7 - 0 Greater Majority
80 Wisdom Knowingly getting addicted to a substance manufactured by the Druj is worthy of Chastisement. Osfrid of Wyven’s Watch Upheld 136 - 0
82 Freeborn The Empire is made stronger by the diversity of its Nations united by the Way. National myths and traditions are not by the nature unvirtuous and we should celebrate our differences and be Proud of our heritage. Mazo i Zabala i Erigo Upheld 42 - 0
83 Urizen Meda Ruth Irremais, Belisarius Blackheart, and Tarquinius are to investigate the nature and effects of the Black Plateau, and to continue to counter its malign effects on Imperial Citizens through the use of Virtue. Medea Ruth Irremais Upheld 60 - 0
84 General There should be a clear record of upcoming inquisitions, detailing time, place and target, on the Synod board; so that interested parties - especially those busy on Imperial business - can attend. This should be updated by the priest raising the Judgement at the time of raising (or by their delegate) and marked as passed or failed when this is known. Bethany Upheld 863 - 49
85 Navarr The Navarr National Assembly would like to offer thanks to the mages of Urizen for the major casting of “Clarity of the Master Strategist” on the Marcher armies assisting in Liathaven. These Wise and Loyal users of magic assisted greatly. We invite Urizen to send a couple of these mages they choose to receive testimonies if they wish, recognising this effort and to show our gratitude. Meredith Nighthaven Upheld 116 - 0
90 Navarr Following the Assembly of Nine stating that the Vallorn are the greatest spiritual threat to the Empire AND that husks trap souls, we the Navarr Assembly believe that EVERY priest should preach that message to their congregation to warn off the threat. Alban Upheld 148 - 0 Greater Majority
91 Marcher The Marcher Assembly requests 15 mana and 5 Dragonbone from the Sevenfold Path vaults, to pursue Good Walder’s inspiration of rewarding the deserving. You may view this true spiritual inspiration in the spontaneous true aura upon Bastard Tom of Stoke. Martin Orchard Upheld 80 - 0 Greater Majority


Number Assembly Judgement Raised By Outcome
25 Navarr The destruction of the vallorn is our reason for existing. Created by our ancestors, it is our responsibility to deal with it, and to free the spirits it has trapped eternally between life and death. We have walked the trods, but now it is time to take up spear and shield against the vallorn of Liathaven. We send Elowen Exile’s End with 25 doses of liao to urge all the thorns of Navarr to join together to drive the vallorn from Liathaven, inasmuch as that is possible. Elowen Exile’s End Not upheld, withdrawn at the request of the raising priest 90 - 0
27 Wintermark We do not compromise even with ourselves. The mantle of the hero is not easily shrugged on and off again, it is a quality of the soul that endures beyond life. We send Gunnbrand Ironwill with 50 doses of liao to remind all the people of Wintermark of the path that we all walk. Gunnbrand Ironwill Upheld 236 - 0 Greater Majority

19 Prosperity Following two inquisitions of Achilles of Damakan's Forge, we, the Prosperity Assembly, recognise him as an Exemplar of Prosperity. Vauraus Korppitkotka Upheld 109 - 32
23 General 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
Levitia of Urizen Not upheld 731 - 361

Number Assembly Judgement Raised By Outcome
5 General I request 48 Thrones from the Virtue Fund to purchase White Granite through the Cavabianca Dock Ministry. 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.

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.
