The Final Acts of The High Preceptor, 1716
Let it be known, that Jorvin Starbreaker, on behalf of the council of Preceptors of Da Kirkja Dverga, however dishonored he may be, should not and shall not be declared an enemy of the Brathmordakin. The gods will surely give him the fate he deserves.
From this day forth, Bjor Cottonwood shall be declared a Paragon of the Brathmordakin. Bjor’s impact on Dwarven society is undeniable, and his ascension to Paragonhood is as clear as the morning sun. Bjor shall now be known as Paragon Bjor the Reformer, with Anbella as his patron goddess and a carrot as his symbol.
As High Preceptor, I am glad to see how the clergy has thrived under my leadership and grown in numbers and dedication far beyond what has been known amongst Dwed-kind for generations. However, respect and reverence for the gods and the clergy extends scarcely past the bounds of Da Kirkja Dverga itself, and a majority of the Dwarven populace adopt idolatrous and heathen ways focussed on their own selves rather than the gods. It is my greatest failing as High Preceptor that these ways have grown under my guidance. And so, it is time to pass control of Da Kirkja Dverga to another.
Within the next stone week, the council of Preceptors shall meet and shall elect a new High Preceptor. Dutsesli, Bolgnir, Baldin, Borin, and Dwarger, may Ogradhads wisdom abound in you as you choose a new leader to guide you through the trying times ahead. Whoever you choose, it will not be easy. Deep corruption has set into the Dwarven political system and you will have many enemies. However, the gods are surely with us and their will shall conquer all.
