Synod Autumn Equinox 384.png
By passing an appropriate judgement, an assembly may appoint a cardinal, veto a Senate motion, change doctrine, or revoke a general.


During the Autumn Equinox 384YE Summit, the Imperial Synod raised 169 judgements.


The following considerations should be borne in mind when bringing judgements before the Imperial Synod during the Summer Solstice.

  • All Assemblies: Statements that prioritise the greater good over personal loyalties are less effective. This is permanent effect of the Eyes of Loyalty.
  • All Assemblies: Statements that try to compel Loyalty will fail. This is permanent effect of the Eyes of Loyalty.
  • All Assemblies: Revocations and Excommunications for disloyalty to the nation or Empire would risk causing dissent. This is permanent effect of the Eyes of Loyalty.
  • All Assemblies: Any mandate that does not pass with a greater majority will have limited or no effect on Urizen or Varushka. It is not impossible that a mandate might lead to a response in one of the two nations, but it won't lead to any immediate consequences for the people of the nation. This lasts until some new turn of events changes things. Urizen Link. Varushka Link.
  • All Assemblies: No statement of principle that is about Sulemaine i Taziel will lead to a mandate. Lasts until at least the end of the Winter Solstice 384YE and potentially longer. Link.
  • Virtue Assemblies: Any statement of principle in any virtue assembly will not create a mandate for that virtue assembly. If any mandate does arise, then it will need to be passed by the General Assembly. Lasts until the end of the Winter Solstice 384YE. Link.
  • Highguard and Dawn Assemblies: Statements of principle in either assembly that receive a greater majority may create opportunities in the other assembly. Lasts until the end of the Autumn Equinox 384YE Link.

Change of Doctrine

Judgement 93

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Kennett the Mummer
  • Judgement: The spiritual force of Freedom lends no aid through the passage of death to rebirth, but it does benefit humanity and should not be persecuted in any form.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld 134-1832


No veto was sought during the Autumn Equinox 384YE.

Statement of Principle

Judgement 4

  • Assembly: Wisdom
  • Raised By: Aspar
  • Judgement: The Synod were unable to unequivocally endorse the five tenets of Wisdom. If we cannot agree on established wisdom then we must reexamine it. If the Synod cannot or refuse to endorse the fundamental principles of Virtue, then either the mechanisms of the Synod are broken and politics and bureaucracy are held higher than Virtue, or the principles themselves are at fault. Virtue is not immutable. We must change our thoughts and actions based on the evidence available. To do otherwise is to stagnate and risk damaging the virtue of the Synod and the Empire as a whole.
  • Outcome: Upheld 190 to 78

Judgement 7

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Bartimaeus
  • Judgement: The General Assembly recognises Abel, Bursar of Conclave, Zenith Ascendant, as Admiral of the Great Fleet sailing forth to cast down the Aerie of the Slave Lords. A journey of this length, so far into the unknown, will be a battle of logistics as much as it will be a battle of swords. The Bursar is known across Anvil for his Prosperity and administrative acumen. Whether he is chosen as Admiral or not, Abel pledges 60 mana from his personal Prosperity towards the success of this venture. Two mana per fleet captain that pledges to join the raid and enchant their fleet to improve its effectiveness. If you intend to sail to the Aerie, seek out the tent of Zenith Ascendant to claim your share.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1133 to 317, a margin of 816. As this had the largest margin, Abel of Zenith Ascendant has been named the Admiral of the Raid on the Aerie of the Slave Lords.

Judgement 8

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Fintan Nighthaven
  • Judgement: The overuse of primacy should be considered for Abuse of Powers. Primacy is a tool to close judgements when there is demonstrable proof that enough Synod Members have given the issue sufficient consideration. More importantly - it enables Virtuous Acts of the Synod where delays would hinder them. It is not a tool of convenience. Nor is it essential for organised voting by an Assembly. If there is no urgency then there is no need for primacy. Scrutiny allows discussion. It allows those not present to vote. It allows those less confident to object, seek council, or change their vote.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld 662 to 774

Judgement 18

  • Assembly: League
  • Raised By: Estella the Wandering Artist
  • Judgement: Highguard is working to pay their debts to repair the damage caused by the Hag Queen's petty schemes, however the fractured relations between our nations still needs to be addressed. I propose that during the Winter Solstice of 384YE that our two nations join to observe the Day of the Dead and Reapertide. Thus starting a new era with a grand celebration of pride and loyalty that will shine across the Empire.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 301 to 86

Judgement 19

  • Assembly: Highguard
  • Raised By: Isaac of the Silent Tide
  • Judgement: The loyalties of our empire shall not waver under the malign influence of the Eternals, least that of the Hag Queen. Highguard and League emerge from the virtuous ordeal of reckoning stronger, as sibling nations. I call upon the people of Highguard to support the plans presented to us last summit by our sibling Estella the Wandering Wayfinder of Holberg. Those plans being that: during the Winter Solstice of 384YE, our two nations join in celebration to mark the historic occasion of the Book of the Dead being hallowed on the Day of the Dead when both our nations remember our fallen. Allow us to share our traditions and remember our dead together. Thus beginning the new chapter of our joined history with clean hands and renewed loyalties.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 550 to 0

Judgement 22

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Galene Netherwatch
  • Judgement: Excommunication is a powerful tool wielded by priests, and must be used carefully. It should only be used with the explicit permission of the Synod, and in extreme emergencies. Any who excommunicate without permission should present themselves immediately to the Imperial Inquisitor or a Virtue Inquisitor so the circumstances can be investigated.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1419 to 363

Judgement 25

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Addam Flowers
  • Judgement: I call for the General Assembly to appoint the Imperial Fleetmaster Ezro i Alvera i Erigo to the position of Raid Admiral against the Aeries of the Slave Lords of Rachensgrab.
  • Outcome: Upheld 529 to 469, margin 60. This is less than Judgement 7, so Ezro i Alvera i Erigo was not named Raid Admiral.

Judgement 27

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Konstantin Rabovich Bolotnikov
  • Judgement: The Synod reaffirms its position from Winter 376YE. Lucidianists and those who follow or teach other aura-averse beliefs within the Way engage in neither heresy nor blasphemy when they reject the use of auras. Provided they do not preach in favour of desecration, their beliefs are not in conflict with doctrine.
  • Outcome: Upheld 919 to 440

Judgement 29

  • Assembly: League
  • Raised By: Genoveva Barossa di Tassato
  • Judgement: For too long, orcs of the Empire have been limited to citizenship in a single nation regardless of their values, ideals, or inclinations. The thoughtful magical scholar and the heroic warrior alike are forced to build their identity solely on their shared heritage of oppression and liberation, while human citizens have the luxury of changing Nation to fit their outlook and circumstances. How can we demand that foreigners bring orcs fully into their nations if we can't do the same? We should preserve the Imperial Orcs' nation and territory, but offer the ability to join any Imperial Nation, if that is their wish. Whether Imperial Orcs, Sand Fishers, or any who may in future become Imperial citizens - if they value competition, rules, and loyalty, we will welcome them as citizens of the League. If they understand that everything has a cost, and everything is on show, we welcome them. Be they orc or human, let the audacious, the clever, and the cunning, they should be welcomed into the League.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 292 to 25. Closed early at request of raising priest

Judgement 32

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Alfredo Barossa di Tassato
  • Judgement: The pen that was used to sign the Liberty Pact spontaneously developed a Hallowing of the False Virtue of Anarchy. For an object of such historical weight to hold a blasphemous aura is an affront to Empire and its allies and to the Way itself. Genoveva Barossa di Tassato was awarded a dose of True Liao by the Gatekeepers last summit, which she will use to perform a Hallowing on the pen. This will replace the blasphemous aura with one of Pride. We applaud and endorse this decision, recognising that it is made in Virtue. The ceremony will be conducted in the Senate building at 3.30pm on Saturday this summit.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1225 to 302

Judgement 33

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Azir i Shartha i Riqueza
  • Judgement: Esteban i DelRio Blanco i Guerra, legendary corsai,r worked with Vigilance during his tenure as Imperial Fleetmaster. He would be an ideal admiral for the raid against the slavers of the Rachensgrab.
  • Outcome: Withdrawn by raising priest.

Judgement 36

  • Assembly: Wintermark
  • Raised By: Ilhelm
  • Judgement: The Priests of Wintermark respect the traditions of our nation and encourage others to respect them too. Specifically the role mystics play in choosing the champion of the Mark. Should it be made an Imperial title the mystics should still choose the bearer. The Stormcrows will not choose the champion of the Mark.
  • Outcome: Upheld 287 to 12

Judgement 37

  • Assembly: Highguard
  • Raised By: Tabris, Son of Armisael
  • Judgement: Ever since the First Empress passed the Test of Mettle set by King Rodric of Astolat, the nations of Dawn and Highguard have shared a certain friendship and understanding. When the Grey Pilgrims first set out on the trods and began to encourage those they meet to question their beliefs and the beliefs of those who preach to them, it was only fitting that the Dawnish respond in kind. As the shared closeness of our National Assemblies comes to an end, the direct result of the camaraderie of our itinerant priests, we the people of Highguard thank our Dawnish cousins for their Virtue, and anticipate even greater cooperation in the future, as we continue our campaigns to exterminate the Druj and liberate those who are cruelly oppressed by them.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 530 to 12

Judgement 38

  • Assembly: Dawn
  • Raised By: Mael Donjeon of House Remys
  • Judgement: Ever since the First Empress passed the Test of Mettle set by King Rodric of Astolat the nations of Dawn and Highguard have shared a certain friendship and understanding. When the Grey Pilgrims first set out on the trods and began to encourage those they meet to question their beliefs and the beliefs of those who preach to them, it was only fitting that the Dawnish respond in kind. As the shared closeness of our National Assemblies comes to an end, the direct result of the camaraderie of our itinerant priests, we the people of Dawn thank our Highborn cousins for their Virtue and anticipate even greater cooperation in the future as we continue our campaigns to exterminate the Druj and liberate those who are cruelly oppressed by them.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 262 to 0

Judgement 39

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Mercia Chainbreaker
  • Judgement: Vote Emilio Ventura for Raid Admiral to lead the attack on the slave lords of Rachensgrab. He is building an international army and fleet to commit to the assault.
  • Outcome: Not Upheld 314 to 625

Judgement 42

  • Assembly: Brass Coast
  • Raised By: Rocio i Fijadoz i Guerra
  • Judgement: The Thule have just outlawed slavery in their nation. This is an immense step in Virtue and should be encouraged. They have done this because they want our help, because they are in danger from the Jotun. We the Freeborn Assembly believe that it is more Virtuous to reward them for their Virtue and provide that aid, than it is to travel to Kahraman to kill wounded Lasambrians.
  • Outcome: Upheld with Primacy 174 to 0

Judgement 43

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Redhand Nirak
  • Judgement: In Sermersuaq, between the Winter Solstice of 382YE and Spring Equinox 383YE many Imperials fought atop the Atkonartoq lake. During this daring assault on the Jotun lines the frozen lake sheared under their feet. The local hylje saved as many humans as they could but couldn't tell Jotun from Imperial Orc. Now with Sermersuaq reclaimed we ask the hylje to recover the bodies and items of worth from the bottom of the Atkonartoq and return them to us so that we may honour them properly. After speaking with the Mediator of Hyljehal, Raal Dunn, I come to understand the hylje to be a deeply practical people who will have trouble knowing what items of worth are. I offer myself to work alongside Raal Dunn to help them understand what items of worth mean to us and help recover them. For the Jotun bodies and items of Worth I ask, if the Jotun desire it, we recover them and return them as a sign of mutual respect.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1442 to 29

Judgement 45

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Constanza i Kalamar i Guerra
  • Judgement: We appoint Rahmah i Darwiss i Erigo as raid admiral for Rachensgrab. Incredibly organised and proactive in himself, he is joined by other capable individuals such as the previous and current fleetmaster to enact a united virtuous vision. May he and they lead the Empire to great things.
  • Outcome: Upheld 627 to 426, margin 201. This is less than Judgement 7, so Rahmah i Darwiss i Erigo was not named Raid Admiral.

Judgement 46

  • Assembly: Wintermark
  • Raised By: "Shacklebreaker" Thanmir Hrafnar
  • Judgement: Since seizing their own liberation, orc citizens have been formed together into a nation based on a shared history of oppression, liberation, and loyalty. But as with their human counterparts not all orcs share this same history and culture. Whilst preserving the Imperial Orc nation and homeland we should offer all persons that wish it, whether Imperial or otherwise, the opportunity to join any Imperial nation. Wintermark is home to three traditions bound in heroism and resilience. No hero should find themselves unwelcome, whether human, orc, hylje, or daeva. All who share and reflect our nations beliefs and culture are welcome to find their place in the Mark.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 326 to 0.

Judgement 52

  • Assembly: Urizen
  • Raised By: Maximillian of Ankarien
  • Judgement: Navarr seeks to construct a true great library to assemble the collection of lore to defeat the vallorn that has over been established. Other nations may have more armies or richer lands, but Urizen scholarship is second to none. We call upon our researchers to contribute to this great work as a demonstration of our Pride.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 248 to 0

Judgement 54

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Herminius
  • Judgement: Seek out opportunities to create new national bourse seats. Be they through trade or prospecting, let virtue guide you in this endeavour. If you have a lead let others know, don't be shy, help the nations become more prosperous.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1445 to 370

Judgement 60

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Lady Eleanor Novarion
  • Judgement: The Free Folk's beliefs and practices are heterodox but do not contradict doctrine. They are not idolaters, blasphemers, nor heretics. They refer to potential paragons as "the Divine Family" but do not believe them to be gods. It is merely a turn of phrase. The Imperial Way is evidence based, can withstand debate, and has evolves as a result. The spontaneous hallowing to Pride of the effigy of one they consider a potential paragon cannot be ignored! They bring to us people who could be paragons and have asked the Synod to help assess the signs. We should do this! Better to encourage free dialogue and trust structures of state to deal with individuals who break the law, than silence an entire people without understanding their beliefs.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1659 to 193

Judgement 64

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Viviane de Coeurdefer
  • Judgement: The Empire recognises the Sumaah Republic's Way of Virtue as equal to ours, but separate. There are many paths, and one ascension we will achieve. Over the generations, both our churches will work to amass evidence of the effectiveness of our separate paths. Souls will be saved by both our efforts. Through this experiment, both the Empire and Sumaah will understand the Way better.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1589 to 294

Judgement 67

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Claude Cutter
  • Judgement: We should create the position of Witness of the Conclave, empowered to inquisit Conclave titleholders, and to bring their deeds to light. This position mirrors that of the Auditor for Senatorial Accountability, the Basilisk of the Bourse, and the Chaplain Consular. Conclave does not currently have this kind of scrutiny. Conclave itself has already voted in support of the creation of this position. Synod should vote in support of this statement to encourage Senate to create it as a position.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1998 to 68

Judgement 68

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Immeldar i Ezmara i Erigo
  • Judgement: We thank the prosperous citizens of Redoubt, Therunin, and Astolat who have responded to the guidance of Darian Numbers. We feel there is more work to be done by the Cardinal of Prosperity and urge the prosperous citizens of the Empire to heed their words for another year so that the prosperous work which originates from "No Coin Unspent" can continue.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1271 to 191

Judgement 69

  • Assembly: Loyalty
  • Raised By: Teleri Thornweaver
  • Judgement: Dignity, freedom, prosperity, and loyalty are cornerstones of the Empires constitution. The freedom to display and act on ones loyalty is key. Mandates that punish instead of encouraging and rewarding various loyalties should be discouraged.
  • Outcome: Upheld 425 to 15

Judgement 70

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Silas of the Cenotaph
  • Judgement: To elect Xenia of the Seaglass Tide Admiral. They have, without exception, attended and gathered support for any opportunity against the horrific and unvirtuous business of slavery. They continue currently in this vein and only demand the job get done. Let virtue guide.
  • Outcome: Not upheld 95 to 257.

Judgement 71

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Vauraus Korppitkotka
  • Judgement: The Great Library of Hacynian will provide the means to destroy the Vallorn. This is an ambition that the whole Empire supports. Inspiring every citizen (mandate 15) will help provide the materials needed, but take many seasons and will hurt the prosperity of the nations who would hold bourse ministries and continue to take those materials even when the library has everything it needs, continuing to hurt those nations prosperity. Instead, we urge all Imperial citizens with access to the bourse, ministries, or personal resources to offer those materials to the Advisor of Vallorn affairs at a virtuous price. Let us show our loyalty, share our own prosperity, demonstrate our ambition and pride to help end the Vallorn forever.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1311 to 330

Judgement 78

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Heilyn Bronwen's Rest
  • Judgement: Prosperous actions are those which enrich not just ourselves but also those around us. When dealing with others, a prosperous exchange is one where you consider how your actions will raise up both yourself and those who you deal with.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1491 to 96.

Judgement 79

  • Assembly: League
  • Raised By: Erasmo di Tassato
  • Judgement: The League does not need to take territory from our allies to expand. We welcome competition with Seren, Meade, Siroc, and Kalpaheim as they strive to match Tassato, Sarvos, Temeschwar, and Holberg. Let us turn our eyes to the large settlements of our enemies, and declare our ambition to liberate Leen and Kierheim to expand the League.
  • Outcome: Upheld 236 to 0

Judgement 80

  • Assembly: Navarr
  • Raised By: Telyn Stormtree
  • Judgement: Feion Essa does not exist. The underwater Vallorn was conceived as a work of fiction. The fiction book about Feion Essa has been located and may be borrowed from Silk Splinterspear, who can chat about it. We the Navarr Assembly advise against any further research into this mythology.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 242 to 0

Judgement 82

  • Assembly: Loyalty
  • Raised By: Sufyan i Zuhri i Erigo
  • Judgement: It is understand that Loyalty cannot be compelled or demanded. However, Loyalty does call for the unity of words and deeds, asking that those who declare their Loyalty follow through on their words. Every Imperial citizen has sworn an oath to their nation's egregore to be loyal to their nation, and to uphold their nation's culture and customs. Therefore, Loyalty demands that their deeds are in unison with this oath of loyalty. To have taken this oath and not act in accordance in unvirtuous. It is within the Loyalty Assembly's power to demand adherence to one's oath.
  • Outcome: Upheld 306 to 130

Judgement 84

  • Assembly: League
  • Raised By: Claus von Holberg
  • Judgement: We believe in the power of Human Destiny to overcome hardships and external antagonists. We have the Ambition to turn the damage in Holberg to our Prosperity. We instruct Sofia Rebeshi and her players to help us Guard the Forest in the Park and Harvest the Winter Vis from the trees. Let the Park remain Free for Entry, but safe and turned to our ends, and our wealth.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 297 to 30

Judgement 85

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Annalaya i DelToro i Riqueza
  • Judgement: If the "free nation of Bregas" will embrace virtue, and reject the practices of slavery and thralldom then we should be willing to negotiate a treaty with them - securing that border for now while we fight viler threats elsewhere.
  • Outcome: Upheld 433 to 205

Judgement 88

  • Assembly: Dawn
  • Raised By: Lord Colborn Videre
  • Judgement: While Nicovar burned the writings, Dawn's history is kept through song, tapestry, sculpture, and other such great art. Where have these gone? We call on all Houses of Dawn that hold and preserve such heirlooms which tell the history and deeds of Dawn at the time of the Founding, to come forth and present them to the people of Dawn. Let the glorious tales they hold be known, remembered, and sung.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 264 to 0

Judgement 86

  • Assembly: Dawn
  • Raised By: Earl Logan Tallstag
  • Judgement: We the Dawnish national assembly send Ser Owain of House Wolfbourne to act as a liaison between the armies of Dawn and the Synod. We recognise this is not an Imperial position. This is done to maintain vigilance for our actions and to be conducted as a wise act.
  • Outcome: Upheld 232 to 10

Judgement 87

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Ranae de Rondell
  • Judgement: The Judgement and condemnation of Legate Glaucia Herminia was premature. The Marracossians were welcomed by the Synod to our Empire that they might be inspired by Virtue, not punished. Let this not set a precedent - let us give newcomers to our Empire more time, and let us take the time that they might learn from us and that we might understand them.
  • Outcome: Upheld 701 to 147

Judgement 89

  • Assembly: Pride
  • Raised By: Sagua i Ezmara
  • Judgement: There are many successes across the Empire this season, proof that grand achievements are possible together. As master of the koboldi, I am appreciative of all those who descended into the sinkhole, human and herald alike, to ensure the safety of Imperial citizens in Hahnmark, Miaren, Mournwold, and Temeschwar. Additionally, Gancio di Catazar, Master of the Mint, and House Orzel, who ensured that the materials were available on short notice to complete the statue demanded by conclave. We are fortunate as an Empire to have citizens who will make such efforts to provide materials and allies such as Adamant to provide the labour. We have an Empire to be proud of, and can all make efforts to keep it improving.
  • Outcome: Upheld 266 to 18

Judgement 90

  • Assembly: Wintermark
  • Raised By: Saavi Heroes Champion
  • Judgement: We, the Wintermark National Assembly extend our hospitality to the Krampus. We recognise the value of the Krampus to our traditions and culture and what they teach us. We are Proud of this tradition. It is Courageous to seek a Krampus curse, and it teaches great Wisdom. We seek to build the Krampus a new and fitting home, to maintain this tradition and the bonds between us. Until that time, we call upon the halls of Wintermark to offer the Krampus hospitality according to our traditions.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 368 to 212

Judgement 91

  • Assembly: Dawn
  • Raised By: Captain Charge
  • Judgement: DAWN MUST HAVE A QUEEN! While the Empire delays in its selection of the Throne, Dawn need not wait. The title of Queen of Dawn is glorious. We should not let it gather dust. Dawn should have a queen, now. When a sufficiently glorious candidate is elected, to the Throne, then our Queen can stand aside in their favour. There is no constitutional or virtuous argument against it!
  • Outcome: Upheld 190 to 50

Judgement 92

  • Assembly: Dawn
  • Raised By: Zadkiel de Couerdefer
  • Judgement: We refute the eternal Janon's suggestion that Dawn is lacking in passion. We utterly reject the idea of rededicating the cathedral of Laroc to passion. We are passionate in our adherence to the Way.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 280 to 0

Judgement 94

  • Assembly: Navarr
  • Raised By: Sian Eternal
  • Judgement: Thanks to a casting of "Clear Lens of the Eternal River" by Bledri Eternal, we know that Rhonwen's Fall is the location where the Exemplar Thorn first swore an Oath to follow the exemplar Navarr. The Navarr National Assembly recognises this as the first Binding of Thorns, the oath that all who join our nation swear. As such we also recognise Rhonwen's Falls as the location where our nation was first founded and encourage citizens of Navarr to visit this location as an act of pilgrimage.
  • Outcome: Upheld 236 to 14.

Judgement 95

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Mnesarete Unclouded Sky
  • Judgement: This assembly encourages those with clandestine skill sets (especially those associated with evasion and smuggling) who wish to show courage and pursue virtue to present themselves to Bernard Dougdale, Imperial Spymaster, in order to pass on their skills and/or contribute to the liberation and prompt relocation of Asavean slaves.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1260 to 55

Judgement 96

  • Assembly: Dawn
  • Raised By: Tobias Field
  • Judgement: At the Summer Solstice 384, the troubadours of Dawn chose these champions. Of ambition - Katarina Words, the Unbelievably Magical; Of Courage - Lady Claudia Remys; Of Loyalty - Selene; Of Pride - Earl Tamerlaine; Of Prosperity - Vincent Steward of House Larmallevés; Of Vigilance - The Lady du Lac; Of Wisdom - Anduin Castellan; Of Love - Enchantress Morien; Of Glory - Tisserande of Griffinsbain; Of the Way - Claude Cutter. Let their names ring out across Dawn, and inspire all to greatness.
  • Outcome: Upheld 224 to 0

Judgement 97

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Zakal Antigonus Shatterhorn
  • Judgement: The gryphons of the Empire, rare and emblematic beasts, find themselves in danger of extinction. We call upon the Synod to remind any who would slay them, in cases other than protection of life or property, that we should not ignore the virtue in keeping these creatures alive. This statement applies to naturally occurring gryphons and not those from the Summer realm, like the ones sent out to cause mayhem by the eternal Hayaak. Let us not see our gryphons go the way of the horses.
  • Outcome: Upheld 949 to 104

Judgement 98

  • Assembly: Highguard
  • Raised By: Elkiah of the Shattered Tower
  • Judgement: Britta's disused tomb stands as a pilgrims' beacon of Courage. Other Imperial tombs stand similarly disused and should be rebuilt to extol the virtuous dead and encourage virtuous pilgrimage. If one tomb can be assigned to Ambition, Wisdom, Vigilance, Prosperity, Pride, and Loyalty each, Necropolis will become a centre of pilgrimage for all.
  • Outcome: Upheld 412 to 0

Judgement 99

  • Assembly: Navarr
  • Raised By: Enis Splinterspear
  • Judgement: In working with the wider Empire against the vallorn, our bonds of Loyalty are recognised. We acknowledge the Navarr that have taken a vines oath to heal the world of its maladies. We ask the egregores to walk the trods to spread this message.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 260 to 24.

Judgement 100

  • Assembly: Highguard
  • Raised By: Jared of the Suns of Couros
  • Judgement: I, Jared of the Suns of Couros and Lepidean Librarian, invite "the Free Folk" to visit and correspond with the Lepidean University about their inspirational figures. If possible, I will put in a research proposal to look into the Speaker of the Dead - this season or next. Work with us so we may understand their inspiration.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 528 to 18

Judgement 103

  • Assembly: Pride
  • Raised By: Ser Dindrane
  • Judgement: The Assembly has heard the tales of the Freefolk and finds them persuasive. But wisdom teaches us to test all that we learn. We call for those with further tales and evidence of the Speaker for the Dead to contact Ser Dindrane, Dean of Laroc Cathedral, and the Heirs of Lepidus in Highguard, with a view to recognising the speaker's virtue at the next summit.
  • Outcome: Upheld 312 to 0.

Judgement 105

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Atla
  • Judgement: The Imperial Orcs wish to lead the fleets in the continued eradication of slavery. We call for the general assembly to recognise our nation's role in achieving this goal by appointing Stormcrow Teach as raid admiral.
  • Outcome: Upheld 750 to 349

Judgement 106

  • Assembly: Navarr
  • Raised By: Talys Silvercloud
  • Judgement: The Navarr Assembly call on the fleet owners of Navarr to fight against the vile slavers that would deny others the chance to live virtuously. By removing their free will the slaves are denied the chance to act with virtue.
  • Outcome: Upheld 218 to 10

Judgement 108

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Lady Laudine duLac
  • Judgement: The Freefolk's goal to complete a pilgrimage of all the Imperial nations to share their history and struggles is an act of great Ambition and Pride for a people who have so keenly embraced the Way of Virtue. I encourage priests of the Empire to welcome them as they travel and discuss the Way with them.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 2501 to 21

Judgement 109

  • Assembly: Wintermark
  • Raised By: ßten of Ashenhall
  • Judgement: Dagmar of the Lewd Parchments was a symbol of the liberation of Sermersuaq. Loved by many, she fell in the final conjunction before her homeland was reclaimed. Her sacrifices in the pursuit of Ambition and her life's work to retake the Suaq's ancestral lands prove she deserves a place on the Chronicle of Heroes.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 337 to 292

  • Assembly: Wintermark
  • Raised By: Ingrid
  • Judgement: I, Ingrid Seiging, Stormcrow of Vigilance, call upon the Winterfolk living close to our Northern borders to show their Vigilance and cunning to find our Winterfolk brethren recently freed from Thule slavery.

May Wintermark welcome its stolen people home.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority 354 to 0.

Judgement 111

  • Assembly: Wintermark
  • Raised By: Rikke
  • Judgement: The Empire is no stranger to differing views on the Way. If we fail to embrace the Free Folk now, we will lose the chance to both learn from them and teach them. We know that the Free Folk are capable of manifesting auras of virtue. There is much we can learn from them. Our actions toward the Free Folk will show others how we treat those with differing faiths; we must show ourselves willing to communicate. We are ten nations stronger for our differences and our convictions. This is an opportunity, not a threat.

  • Judgement: The Thule have ended slavery. We commend those who contributed to the Thule treaty, and all who worked tirelessly in the years prior to build this often difficult relationship.

  • Outcome: Upheld with Primacy 5 to 3

Judgement 117

  • Assembly: Nine
  • Raised By: Skywise Tulva
  • Judgement: Appeasers who were eager to pay for land with the blood of slaves should not be celebrated for their cowardice. It is the actions of those who stood against the treaty that should be remembered.

Judgement 119

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Friar John of the Mourn
  • Judgement: The haunted ruins of Overton, Greensward, remain to this day, a terrible reminder of the dread curses the Empire inflicted upon the Mourn. The Church of Honours Rest and its priests labour to send those confused and angry spirits onto their next life through the Labyrinth. A unique enchantment has been put upon the territory this season to grant those poor souls a clarity they have not known since they lost breath. I, Friar John, the Friar of Honour's Rest, incite those across the Empire with the skills to help these temporarily sober souls to my home. Let us seize this opportunity to save these tormented ghosts.

Judgement 130

  • Assembly: Dawn
  • Raised By: Leviticus Cagliostro
  • Judgement: The Golden Causeway, instrumental in reclaiming Ossium, is a wasted resource now that fighting has ceased. We wish to see it opened on a monthly basis to enhance trade. Those with Ambition will bring Prosperity to the Dawnish nation. The nature of this trade links the raw resources of the Forest of Ossium with the polished wares of Dawn. Additionally, this demonstrates the Wisdom of using our existing resources appropriately.

  • Raised By: Nathair Autumngale
  • Judgement: The motion to push towards the Heart of Terunael could take us deeper into the largest vallorn in the Empire than ever before.

  • Judgement: More of our cousins now attend Anvil. Our people should be represented by those who know them best and live amongst them, rather than simply seeking a Senator's lifestyle.

Judgement 143

  • Assembly: Brass Coast
  • Raised By: Soratio i DelToro

Judgement 145

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Yosephus Morningson
  • Judgement: Last season the Assembly of the Way upheld that citizens are required to give due notice to all seven virtues.

  • Judgement: We the Navarr National Assembly wish to be proud of the new Cardinal of Pride being one of our nation. However with the events within the final hour of voting, with the withdrawal of half the candidates, we cannot do so until the vote is proved virtuously for him, instead of politically against the other candidate.

Judgement 151

Judgement 166

  • Assembly: Brass Coast
  • Raised By: Ahshen i Fiel i Guerra
  • Judgement: To be freed from slavery is to have a right to now choose where to call home.

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

Judgement 9

  • Assembly: Navarr
  • Raised By: Corey Wayfarer
  • Judgement: Inquisition. I call Rhys Dancewalker and Travid Longest Path of the Black Scar banner to answer questions on their virtue at 5pm Saturday at Autumn Equinox 384 in the Eternal family awning in the Navarr.
  • Outcome: Upheld. 126-10

Judgement 14

  • Assembly: Wisdom
  • Raised By: Palladius
  • Judgement: Condemnation. Father Drakov shows ambition in his wish to be recognised as an exemplar of Wisdom but his deed to date fall short of the very high bar required. We look forward to seeing his greater endeavours in the future.
  • Outcome: Upheld with a Greater Majority. 372-32

Judgement 16

  • Assembly: Imperial Orc
  • Raised By: Irontide Voxx
  • Judgement: Revocation. Frostbear Zerk, the Second Legion, army of the Summer Storm needs its general in Anvil. We the priests of the nation move to revoke you of your position. For the good of the nation. We thank you for your service soldier.
  • Outcome: Upheld with Primacy. 94-0

Judgement 17

  • Assembly: Imperial Orc
  • Raised By: Stormcrow Skred
  • Judgement: Revocation. Following the raid on Chalonsio, a number of orcs did not return. Amongst them was our senator. It is with deepest regret that, whilst they are missing - feared dead - that we seek to revoke Pale Rictus Rurik from the position of senator for Skarsind.
  • Outcome: Upheld with Primacy. 94-0

Judgement 21

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Galene Netherwatch
  • Judgement: Sanction : Penance. I declare the use of Excommunication by Finna i Fijadoz i Guerra to have had both virtuous and unvirtuous reasons, and thus I give them a Penance. They must negotiate a contract with Raine Realeaf and Aristeia Starchaser, overseen by a scrivener of the Fijadoz family, that states the recompense given to Raine and dictates how their relationship shall be going forward. A full report is available on the Synod notice board. This situation truly highlights a lack of communication between parties and a misunderstanding of the use of Excommunication ceremony. I urge all who are able to perform it to educate themselves before attempting it.
  • Outcome: Upheld. 995-21

Judgement 26

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Elagabala
  • Judgement: Inquisition. Only fools accept hearsay as truth. I call Skywise Gralka, Archmage of Day, to inquisition, to bring the matter of the Darkest Road and its virtue into the Light. It shall be friday, midnight, at the Prismatic Eye tent in Urizen.
  • Outcome: Upheld. 365-27

Judgement 30

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Genoveva Barossa di Tassato
  • Judgement: Sanction : Vindication. Having Inquisited Kindra Edasdottir, General of the Fist of the Mountains, last summit regarding her suggestion of casting Quickening Cold Meat on an army in Bregasland, I find that she acted virtuously. Faced with limited options to ensure that the Empire did not break its treaty with the Thule, she duly considered all possible solutions including the use of ritual magic to strengthen her army so it wouldn't have to resupply and could fight alongside the Thule. When told that the ritual would lead to the death of the Marcher egregore, she accepted this. Instead, she was prepared to deploy the Fist of the Mountains with its low numbers and fight alongside the Thule, despite the fact this would likely have led to her army disbanding and her probably death. Her actions show both Wisdom and Courage and are to be commended. Despite Kindra not pursuing this ritual, a number of rumours started that she was going to have it cast. I recommend that the Marchers check that they are in full possession of the facts before threatening a General for something they haven't done yet.
  • Outcome: Upheld. 956-20

Judgement 31

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Alexie
  • Judgement: Sanction : Condemnation. Glaucia Herminia and their followers, the Marracossans continue to worship an idolatrous statue despite being told by multiple priests this is illegal and unvirtuous, and they have refused to change their ways.

Sometimes information is limited and there is no perfect choice but virtue drives us to action rather than inaction and she has been guided by this principle. She should continue to make her decisions while weighing up the information available and seek spiritual guidance where needed.

The following judgements of rewarding were proposed during the Autumn Equinox.

Judgement 10

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Prince Jonah Yakovitch von Holberg
  • Judgement: It is our duty to inspire those within and outside of the Empire to the Way. The walls of Holberg are creating spontaneous dedications to Wisdom, alongside the spontaneous aura to Wisdom that settled over the Holmauer Gate. We have an opportunity to make the walls of Holberg a wonder of the world and this would carry forth word of the miracles of the Way to corners of creation we have no influence over and act as a seed of salvation for their souls. I seek 40 Thrones to buy White Granite to create this inspirational wonder and help people take their first steps on a great pilgrimage from every corner of the world.
  • Outcome: Upheld 1050-417. 40 Thrones were provided to Prince Jonah Yakovitch von Holberg.

Judgement 11

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Lady Josephine of Adina's Charge
  • Judgement: There are many in the Empire whose virtuous contributions do not get the recognition they deserve because they quietly get on with it and do not speak well on their own behalf. I nominate Farren Silver Streams to receive a dose of True Liao from the Virtue Fund for the following reasons: the colouring books he has drawn are an easy and fun reference guide that both kids and adults can use to learn more about areas of the Empire they might not know about. The thought and care that have gone into them are bvious to any who read them. He has put hours upon hours of work into assisting those new to Anvil, from helping with skirmishes to quiet conversations to inspire confidence. He has started an Imperial Introverts group. The acknowledgement that not everyone is outgoing and charismatic is important, and knowing someone understands can give people strength even when they do not talk.
  • Outcome: Upheld 773-480. No dose was available.

Judgement 13

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Lucratias
  • Judgement: I ask for the sum of 16 Thrones from the Virtue Fund to reward those virtuous citizens who out of Loyalty and Vigilance sent their Military Units into the Spiral Spy Network.

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Chessia Gordost von Temeschwar
  • Judgement: I call upon the priests of the general assembly to award a dose of true liao to Laughlan vi Temeschwar to consecrate Ratibor's Tomb to Ambition. Ratibor's ambition to see Temeschwar cleansed of the vyig has allowed the city to be as great as it is today. When we are faced with as many internal threats as external, now more than every it is important for the people of the Empire that we look to his example.

The Basilica of the Little Mother in Bastion is consecrated with a true aura of Prosperity, as testament to this, and for the salvation of the children who call it home. But a terrible fire in Winter has seen the walls and roof crumbling, and it requires our investment to restore. I propose to use the virtue fund to purchase 5 wains of White Granite in order to rebuild. Further white granite will be required, but we are working hard to find the rest ourselves through fundraising over the Autumn. I ask for 30 Thrones to repair this inspirational sanctuary.

Judgement 73

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Pontus Figures

Further White Granite will be required but once complete the Illarawm Sept will join the Imperial Orc nation. We ask for 22.5 Thrones. The change of focus to the Illarawm from the Enthengraw is at the request of Tulva, Cardinal of the Way. We recommend those interested in the progress of integrating the Ossium Septs into the Imperial Orcs discuss with the Cardinal.
  • Outcome: Upheld 611-266. No funds available.

Judgement 81

  • Assembly: General
  • Raised By: Luca i Taziel i Riqueza

The Guilded Vine, who gave their coin in the purchase of relics, and the mystery club of the academy who bargained with a boggart and in doing so discovered the Kraken's Bone and a potential mitacle. I shall receive and distribute the funds.
