From the Desk of the High Preceptor : Order

~ 4th Edition : 10th of The Deep Cold, 1765 ~

 

When Yemekar crafted the world, it was at first sacredly ornate and with perfect balance. He brought order to the chaotic primordial forces of the void. Order is a thing of exceptional value, a good and virtuous thing, which is why the era we are in now is one of particular importance. We currently are in an era of disorder. We are at war, and many uneasy sentiments exist among our kinsmen. It is the duty of not just da Kirkja Dverga but of all organizations across dwarfdom to ensure that order is found and not upset further.

 

Da Dverga eron da Kirkja Rhun

On the subject of disorder, last stone day Karl Blackroot announced that he would be making his own independent clergy, naming it the Order of the Holy Power. This was an announcement of some shock to da Kirkja Dverga, specifically concerning some of the practices that were listed in the document. Within it, Karl Blackroot writes that the Seers and their council have the ability to interact on a direct level with the gods and interpret their will. Karl Blackroot lists among the duties of his Seer council the ability to determine if a story regarding the Brathmordakin is legitimate, assuming the authority to determine the will of the Brathmordakin. 

 

Karl Blackroot

In the years leading up to the creation of this strange new holy order, Karl Blackroot has made many statements, both officially and in person, that help give insight to the situation. For as long as I’ve known Karl, he has been aggressive to myself and the notion of the clergy whenever mentioned. When he was told that the Hefrumm may be a site of a new shrine for an upcoming order of Anbella, he expressed discontent and frustration that the “cave-dwellers” of the capital had anything to say about how things should be run in Hefrumm. That same day, I discovered the fact that Karl, then Cottonwood, was given the title of High Seer of Hefrumm by the High Chief, and that he planned to teach more seers. There he also expressed some distaste for the clergy vocally. At the moment, it seemed that being a Seer was just a teaching role within the community, much like an elder. I was not aware that it was based around rituals that claimed to host active communion with the gods. 

 

Response

These are dangerous claims. This Seer council is an attempt at undermining and replacing the established clergy and the traditions it and sons of Urguan hold so dearly, as evident by claims of active communion with the gods and the desire to hold rituals that are performed by the clergy. Denying such knowledge is foolish and absent minded. Continuing to pursue this false clergy will lead only to more disorder in times where we must be united in faith and purpose. The priests of da Kirkja Dverga met to discuss this, and a consensus was made. 

 

To claim the ability to know the will of the Brathmordakin and the nature of reality without the basis of tradition is a dangerous heresy.

 

Combined with his history of anti-clergy sentiment and the deeds of his father, there is reason to believe that Karl Blackroot is seeking to bring disorder to the clergy and across all of dwarfdom. Such is feared amongst the ranks of da Kirkja Dverga, however this is not a condemnation. Da Kirkja Dverga offers to Karl Blackroot court summons to confront the suspicions of heresy so that we may reach a mutual understanding, and perhaps a possible collaboration. Until a result is decided, the Seer Council is deemed null, and all people who Karl Blackroot had led to become Seers are instructed not to continue to claim this false title.

Andrus treebeard would chuckle”gotta sae, if oi ‘ave to chose between kirkja dverga or kirkja r’un... da dverga eron da kirkja rhun wins ‘ere as t’ey be our local clerge’, oi nae see it as a dominatin clerge’ eit’e just t’at it goes back to our roots... oi meself practise Brat’mordakin on our own wae as Treebeards but if t’ey want to dew it t’ey ‘ave all t’e roig’t to dew so, t’ey ain’ worshippin K’orvad for Yemekars sake!”he’d say as he would crumble Norli’s post and feed it to his campfire where he would roast some sweet mutton.

Azkel Scoffs at the idiocrasy shown by the Dwed claiming that this is just another form of practicing “This dwed is claiming to be able to directly commune with the Gods, something that is not possible. It is dangerous and manipulative to say the very least”.

Vergil Goldhand would nod at the post and sigh “T’ese kin ‘ave to understand t’at nae one can speak to de gods like dat. T’is wouldn’t be ah issue if t’ey didn’t do t’at.” Vergil shakes his head “Otherwise, ah believe a branch o’ de clergy wi’hin Heferumm would be a grand idea, but to separate from de clergy itself? Nae.”
