Judgement 8

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Solas
  • Judgement: In the confict in Asavea we see echoes of the Patrician War and Thrace's rebellion. We call on all Imperial citizens to aid the peoples of Marracoss and Emphedor in their struggle for liberty in any way possible. We denounce any military captain who would seek to profit from this conflict with the coin of slavers.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1219 - 165

Judgement 11

  • Assembly: Navarr National
  • Raised By: Idanach Listing Beacon
  • Judgement: We condemn the murder of Achilles Damakan's Forge in the strongest terms. It achives nothing but shows a shocking lack of Pride and Loyalty. We further call for the killer - who reportedly said "this is for the Quiet Step" - to come forward and face the consequnces of their actions, and we call anyone with relevant information to share it. Remember Isaella; even the most virtuous assassin is not above the law.
  • Outcome: Upheld 142 - 10

Judgement 14

  • Assembly: Prosperity Virtue
  • Raised By: Onan of the Chantry of the Silver Skull
  • Judgement: It has come to our attention that many in the Empire believe that the resting place of Good Walder is unknown. Rejoice, for his remains are safely interred in the Chantry of the Silver Skull in Necropolis, and have been for centuries!
  • Outcome: Upheld 126 - 13

Judgement 16

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised by: Rune Rathmore
  • Judgement: I, Rune Rathmore, declare that corruption (the purchasing of votes through coin or influence of power) be declared unacceptable within the SYnod and be declared punishable in the same regard as misuse of priestly powers.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld (562 - 944)

Judgement 22

  • Assembly: Wintermark National
  • Raised By: Gunnbrand Ironwill
  • Judgement: The heroism of Wintermark is not found ony in the might of Steinr courage, but also the cunning of the Suaq and the wisdom of the Kallavesi. We fight with honour in our way not the way of the Jotun, and the magics of our people should not be disrespected. Our strength comes from being THREE PEOPLES ONE NATION.
  • Outcome: Upheld (226 - 0)

Judgement 29

  • Assembly: Wintermark National
  • Raised By: Pahkina
  • Judgement: A hero's tale ends in a good death, we know this to be true. We have warred with the Jotun bfore, they are honourable fores. We believe that under a flag of truce the ghodi and shaman of the Jotun and the Stormcrows and scops of wintermark should meet to tell stories of battle and heroes that fell in battle from our shared history, so all may know the heroism of the dad. A winged messenger should be sent to their king and queen - Glamundar Arcason King of the South and Yrssa Jansdottir Queen of the North.
  • Outcome: Upheld (165-33)

Mandate

Judgement 9

  • Assembly: Assembly of the Nine
  • Raised by: Jorma Steelhail
  • Judgement: The institution of slavery is a dark stain on the soul that will never wash clean. Evey citizen should take arms in defence of those who fight against slavery against any who threaten it. We send Jorma Steelhail with 150 doses of liao to tell every citizen of the Empire to reach out to help those who have been enslaved - all that is worthwhile is shared with those who deserve it.
  • Ouctome: Upheld 7-0 (Greater Majority, margin of 7). If Jorma Steelhail provides 150 doses of liao, Imperial citizens will oppose slavery within the Empire as described here.

Judgement 5

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Bloodcrow Ergot
  • Judgement: The institution of slavery is a dark stain on the soul that will never wash clean. Every citizen should take arms in defence of those who fight against slavery against any who threaten it. We send Jorma Steelhail with 150 doss of liao to tell every citizen of the Empire to reach out to help those who have been enslaved - all that is worthwhile is shared with those who deserve it.
  • Outcome: Withdrawn at request of Bloodcrow Ergot. (1120-295 in favour at time it was withdrawn).

Judgement 7

  • Assembly: Highborn National
  • Raised By: Hazelponi of the Shattered Tower
  • Judgement: The monstrous infestation that is the vallorn is a danger beyond any other that now faces us. There is no sacrifice so great that we cannot meet it to defeat this terror. We send Hazelponi of the Shattered Tower with 500 liao to urge every Highborn citizen to consider if they could assist in defeating this threat by undertaking an extended pilgrimage to walk the trods.
  • Outcome: Not upheld (211-498).
  • Notes: The Throne used their Custodian of the Empire power to cause this mandate to require a Greater Majority.

Jugement 10

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Eska Crowspeaker
  • Judgement: The institution of slavery is a dark stain on the soul that will never wash clean. Every citizen should take arms in defence of those who fight against slavery against any who threaten it. We send Eska Crowspeaker with 150 doss of liao to tell every citizen of the Empire to reach out to help those who have been enslaved - all that is worthwhile is shared with those who deserve it.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1330-200, margin of 1130).

Judgement 19

  • Assembly: Highborn National
  • Raised By: Bartimaeus
  • Judgement: Virtuous people set prices for things which are fair, and buy and sell them accordingly. To do otherwise, to invoke market forces and economic factors, is to subsume human destiny and will to an impartial, immoral, and unvirtuous force. We send Bartimaeus with 50 doses of liao to urge those Imperial citizens in possession of white granite to deal through the Cinderpath Exchange for the betterment of the virtuous rather than to indulge their personal greed.
  • Outcome: Upheld (601 - 92, Greater Majority). If Bartimaeus provides 50 doses of liao, Highborn citizens will look for alternatives to the public auction at Anvil for purposes of selling white granite as described here.

Judgement 20

  • Assembly: General Assemby
  • Raised By: Jonah Yakovitch
  • Judgement: The Way unites humanity through the Seven Virtues. The people of Asavea will more readily accept the teachings of the Way from their own people; creating Asavean priests will help to spread the faith. Yet only those who show a true commitment to the doctrines of the faith should receive training in the use of liao. We send Jonah Yakovitch with 50 doses of liao to support the training of new priests from among those judged most sincere in their devotion to the Way.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1265-119, margin of 1146). If Jonah Yakovitch provides 50 doses of liao, the Temple of the Way in Nemoria will begin to train devout priests chosen from among Asavean candidates as detaied here.

Judgement 23

  • Assembly: Highborn National
  • Raised By: Kerem of the Chantry
  • Judgement: The monstrous infestation that is the vallorn is a danger beyond any other that now faces us. There is no sacrifice so great that we cannot meet it to defeat this terror. We send Lilith of the Chantry with 500 liao to urge every Highborn citizen to consider if they could assist in defeating this threat by undertaking an extended pilgrimage to walk the trods.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (595 - 244; margin of 351). If Lilith of the Chantry provides 500 liao, the people of Highguard will begin to undertake radical pilgrimages as detailed here.
  • Notes: The Throne used their Custodian of the Empire power to cause this mandate to require a Greater Majority.

Judgement 24

  • Assembly: Imperial Orcs National
  • Raised By: Irontide Lok
  • Judgement: The Legions are the Heart and Soul of the Imperial Orc nation. They fight for the Empire and to crush its enemies. All Orcs must serve either in or to support the Legions. We send Irontide Lok with 25 doses of Liao to urge everyone to welcome any orc who is willing to serve our Legions, our nation and the Empire unstintingly.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (80 - 0, margin of 80). If Irontide Lok provides 25 doses of liao, the Imperial Orcs nation will be encouraged to look to their future and build a new, martially inclined, nation in Skarsind as detailed here.

Judgement 30

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Franco i Erigo
  • Judgement: The Way unites humanity through the Seven Virtues. The people of Asavea will more readily accept the teachings of the Way from their own people; creating Asavean priests will help to spread the faith. Yet only those who show a true commitment to the doctrines of the faith should receive training in the use of liao. We send Franco i Erigo with 50 doses of liao to support the training of new priests from among those judged most sincere in their devotion to the Way.
  • Outcome: Upheld (765 - 414, margin of 351).
  • Notes:Although this mandate passed, the same mandate was also raised by Jonah Yakovitch and passed with a greater margin.

Judgement 31

  • Assembly: Urizen National
  • Raised by: Palladius
  • Judgement: Those who seek to teach others should first be challenged to prove their own Wisdom. We send Palladius with 50 doses of liao to urge potential students to study at the Temple of the Winds so that it may be swiftly restored.
  • Outcome: Upheld 72 - 0. If Palladius provids 50 doses of liao, any mandate that does not achieve a greater majority will have no effect on Urizen, as detailed here.
  • Notes: This mandate will only take effect if the Temple of the Winds is rebuilt and the demands of the sword scholars met.

Evaluation

The Synod made the following judgements of excommunication, inquisition, revocation, and sanction.

Judgement 6

  • Assembly: Pride Virtue
  • Raised By: Rane Sherarding
  • Judgement: Vindication. Miriam of the Cenotaph's name was brought to me with claims she "saved Highguard" in battle. Initial investigations found no opposition to this.. Inquisition sealed it. As a runner she put herself in extreme danger to summon reinforcements to surrounded Highborn forces. This short judgement cannot do the tale justice, but I name it heroism. She named it her duty. I urge the Highborn to hear her story, and tell it as an example of these highest duties. Let them take Pride in their hero and use this as an inspiration to which they may aspire. Miriam herself is warmly reminded her next duty is to continue setting this example to elevate others with Pride.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority (214-0)

Judgement 15

  • Assembly: General Assembly
  • Raised By: Ephron of Adina's Charge
  • Judgement: Inquisition. I call Emilia Ankarien, Archmage of Winter, to Inquisition regarding Wendigo's interest. Sunday, Summer summit 382YE, Highguard chapel, 14:00.
  • Outcome: Upheld (1136-37).

Judgement 21

  • Assembly: Loyalty Virtue
  • Raised By: Able of the Shattered Tower
  • Judgement: I call Hazel of the Shattered Tower to Inquisition regarding the matter of her recent actions. The Inquisition will take place at 11pm on the Saturday of the Summer Solstice in the Shattered Tower camp.
  • Outcome: Upheld (191 - 10)
