The Imperial Conclave has the ability to declare amity or enmity towards an Eternal.

Amity or Enmity towards an Eternal is considered to apply to all that Eternal's Heralds. The Conclave may also occasionally extend amity or enmity towards a specific herald without changing the designation of other heralds or the patron eternal.

Amity

An Eternal (and associated Heralds) under Declaration of Amity gains the following rights:

  • They can attend conclave meetings
  • They may be nominated to speak before the conclave, although they cannot vote.
  • They can place an Address or Declaration onto the conclave agenda under the normal rules as if they were Imperial citizens (the civil service does not accept realm-specific mana as payment).
  • They can make bequests to the vault of a specific order or to the Conclave as a whole.

The declaration also has a magical effect. Eternals and their Heralds find it easier to manifest in the Hall of Worlds and to move into Anvil.

Eternals with Amity

As of 376YE, no Eternals were in a position of amity following the disastrous intervention of Emperor Walter. Over the course of 377YE, declarations of Amity were passed by the Conclave for the Eternal Sadogua, the Eternal Basileus Kade and Carolinus Kade, the Herald of Basileus Kade.

Enmity

An Eternal (and associated Heralds) under Declaration of Enmity suffers the following penalties:

The declaration also has magical effects. Eternals find it much harder to enter the Hall of Worlds. Heralds cannot use the portal in the Hall of Worlds to travel to Anvil without ritual assistance from an Imperial citizen.

Eternals with enmity

As of 376 YE, the only well-known Eternal subject to declaration of enmity is Wendigo, a Winter Eternal that promotes unspeakable acts and cannibalistic feasts. He was made subject to this declaration in the 306 YE Winter Solstice session of the Conclave following exposure of his involvement in no less than three cannibalistic cults dedicated to blasphemy, idolatry and heresy.
