  1. The Emperor considers this missive, his brigadier Vonchester with him as he sends his hawk off of his leather gauntlet, his old eyes barely making it out as it ascends. Another soldier on horseback would approach the Imperial retinue with a copy of this missive, delivering it into the Brigadier. The aging zealot squints up at the clouds hopelessly as he is read the paper. ”How dreadful,” he sighs as the hawk dives unto some unknown prey. He cannot trace it’s dive anymore, but a nearby courtier describes it to him. As the retinue follows the hawk’s dive on foot, the Emperor laments to Vonchester, “My dearest granddaughter, how sad. We had spoken with Otto August, given him Our blessing in hopes he would help me in diverting such erratic behaviors as public denunciation, or vile proclamations of hatred against her own family, and the young man gave me his word. Though surely he could not control this outburst; Our Imperial daughters are not simple creatures.” The retinue approaches the hawk in the brush, it’s claws grasped tightly around the throat of a prairie rabbit. “We pray she considers her hurtful words. It was for the sake of her that We informed her King that she was under suspicion by the Lectors of Owyn, and left it to him and the High Pontiff to determine a fair course of action. To accuse her own mother, Our beloved daughter, of such a villainous thing, We pray forever that they reconcile.”
  2. HIS IMPERIAL MAJESTY’S MOST HOLY SEMINARY & SOCIETY OF SAINT JAMES II OF KORVASSA AND THE ARGENTATE STAR Our Empire is the patrimony of the Exalted, divinely-ordained to bear the legacy of the saints and to preserve the Word of God. Thus it should be that each of Our subjects—from the simplest layman to the most learned bishop—should study the Holy Scrolls and the hagiographies with careful attention. Our deepest hope is to share Our wisdom and in turn partake of the wisdom of Our fellows, for the betterment of Virtue. Accordingly, We command that the families of each of Our peers shall select at least one member of their lineage, to represent their virtues of their Patron Saint, and together these shall constitute the students of The Most Holy Seminary & Society of St. James II of Korvassa and the Argentate Star. This society will provide for the education of its students in the Canonist faith, to such a degree that they should each attain the office of deacon, this being a layman who has completed training within the Church required for ordination to the priesthood. The graduates of Our seminary society, whether as deacons or as priests, shall form a panel of Our advisors: the Emperor’s court of the cloth. ISSUED AND PROCLAIMED, Philip II, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Defender of the Faith, Grand Duke of Ves, Helena, Novellen and Lorraine, Baron of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Orenian Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera
  3. AMENDMENT TO THE EDICT OF VISIGA, 1841 Delivered at the Augustine on the 19th of Harren's Folly, 1841 Our beloved subjects, It is Our beloved pleasure to be endowed with the duty of stewardship of the Canonist Flock. We are bound by the will of God, and what We know of God is within the Holy Scrolls. He has dictated that We must live with virtue in our hearts, and so as the Steward of His flock, We are bound by Our most holy duty to utilize Our innate authority to instill upon Our subjects the necessary tenets of His word. We further amend the Edict of Visiga in the interest of this vision of the Empire. Every Imperial family of noble status shall select from amongst them a man or a woman to serve in the Society of Saint James II and achieve Deaconhood through the study in the seminary. ISSUED AND PROCLAIMED, Philip II, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Defender of the Faith, Grand Duke of Ves, Helena, Novellen and Lorraine, Baron of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Orenian Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera
  4. Our Patrons It should be that in every Canonist realm there exists the true and faithful tenets of the Holy Scrolls of Canonism. These works are simple to pervert, however. For centuries, and even now, there are those who throw a single-pattern quilt of monotheistic theocracy over their insatiable desire to subjugate, and to make others lesser. The Holy Scrolls do not command us to do anything but to live a virtuous life, and it relays what those virtues are. Where purity has been corrupted as a tool for genocide, it is instead an expression of our liberty under God, to be pure of soul and spirit by our own volition. There are examples of virtuous lives, and from those stories we learn. So, we endeavor to do the good work of the Saints, whose spirits patronize the many aspects of our society. We charge ourselves to embody our Saints, and to protect those aspects of the faith they represent. “The Lord is Our sovereign, and so he is sovereign of all of Our subjects.” Saint Harald’s House Vuiller Priest Combatants and Demonic Banishment "Be Our inquisitors. Find the evils of this realm, and bare them before the light of God." Saint Adrian’s House de Rosius Statesmen, Lawyers, and Politics "Share with Us this holy duty, the Stewardship of the Lord's flock." Saint Andrik’s House Darkwood Victory, Military Excellence, and the Schism War "Make no compromise. Make battle your art, and do it in His name." Saint Rudolph’s House d’Arkent Redemption, Musicians, and Beggars "Uplift the downtrodden, that Our poor will know His eternal love." Saint Judith’s House Tuvyic Wayward Women and Nuns "Be Our guide and guardian of the abused and forgotten." Saint Edmond’s House Galbraith Knights, Hospitality, Baronial lords, and Auvergne "Be an example of chivalry. Share your love of Country and God with friend and stranger alike." Saint Lothar’s House Pruvia Lorraine Cross, Princes, Courage, Heraldry "Fear nothing. Do that terrifying thing which no other will do, and know He protects you." Saint Nafis’ House Basrid Farfolk, Fishermen, Diamonds, Converts, and Revolution "Find within Our realm the mysteries and the mystic. Invent Our future." Saint Godwein’s House Huntshill Honesty, Woodworkers, and Skin Afflictions "Be Our guardian of the natural works of God. Share your spirit with them." Saint Pius’ House Melphestaus Confession, Elven Converts, Parish Priests "Be forever magnanimous, and share it with Our elves, so they may know Our Lord as He is, and not how His word is twisted." Saint Tobias’ House Aldersberg Merchants, Comets, Wealth and Charity "Teach that gold is the wealth of the Lord, and give it freely in His name." Saint Foltest’s House Helvets Bastions and Siegeworks "Destroy the monuments to Our foes and the false deities. Be relentless in your purity." Saint Joren's House var Ruthern Mountainfolk, Winter, the Imprisoned and Highlanders "Be the scion of our ancestry. Instill upon Our subjects your fortitude, and the story of Our people." Saint Michael's House d'Azor Patron Saint of Passion, Exiles, Service and the Eighteen Years’ War "Be the example of Our meritocracy. Despise nepotism, for it stifles innovation, and be the Lord's warden against it." THE PATRON SAINT OF THE EMPEROR SAINT JAMES II
  5. The Emperor receives his grandson's letter with great reverence. He writes him back, in genuine pleasure, My dearest grandson, A pilgrim's path is a most glorious one, walked by the holiest men who have ever walked the world. That you seek to discover the mysteries of faith and God are the most commendable quests that can be undertaken. Whence I see you again, we shall discover, within each other, a newfound affection for God. For as you wander the temporal realms of the world God has created, you will pray and receive signs, and you will pray and you will not. The journey, the places, the people. What you see within each individual you meet, as I once did, is not that the Lord has sent you on a journey of penance, or repentance for the innate sin within yourself. Instead, the nature of your journey shall be the construction of your own relationship with the Lord. How He has given you the tortures of your life, how He has made your feet sore and parched your lip in the desert. And how He has given you a warm hearth of the friendly stranger, and the bounty of His gardens. Your trials, and your success, are His creation for you, and for nobody else. His trials are surmountable, even if they are not defeated, for they are each a test of faith. Your grandfather, HIM Philip II
  6. A public letter addressed to Franz Nikolai. Mr. Franz, It is Our great displeasure to address you, for We do not generally believe you are worth addressing. In this year, the year of Our Lord, 1840, the assassins you have dispatched unto my country to stir chaos, or otherwise kill Our most loyal subjects, have humiliated themselves with failure and suicide. God is with us, and He has instilled within your men a profound allergy to success. It is Our belief that you do us a great favor. We need not hunt your incompetent assassins, the supporters of the false Adria you proclaim. Instead you send them unto Us to die, or to kill themselves in shame and humiliation. You send these innately incompetent fools to do the work of you, a coward who declares war and rescinds it through pure misinterpretation of your own ability to accomplish anything of value. Surely your masters, the lizards which you consort with, are tugging at your leash in frustration. Blessed be the Lord, for He shall judge you rightly. That We have spared so many words for a coward such as yourself is Our gracious gift. We anticipate with little care your denial of these crimes, as befit a coward. Signed, His Imperial Majesty, PHILIP II, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Defender of the Faith, Grand Duke of Ves, Duke of Helena, Novellen and Lorraine, Baron of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Orenian Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera.
  7. EDICT OF VISIGA Delivered at the Augustine on the 19th of Harren's Folly, 1840 Our beloved subjects, It is Our beloved pleasure to be endowed with the duty of stewardship of the Canonist Flock. We are bound by the will of God, and what We know of God is within the Holy Scrolls. He has dictated that We must live with virtue in our hearts, and so as the Steward of His flock, We are bound by Our most holy duty to utilize Our innate authority to instill upon Our subjects the necessary tenets of His word. Every subject of Our Empire shall be students of the Holy Scrolls, and have read them to completion. Those illiterate subjects may have the Holy Scrolls read to them by a priest of the Canonist Faith. Every Imperial family, of any status, shall select for themselves a Patron Saint, and shall construct within their homes shrines to their chosen Patrons. ISSUED AND PROCLAIMED, Philip II, by the grace of GOD Holy Orenian Emperor, forever August, King of Renatus, Curon, Kaedrin, Salvus, and Seventis, Defender of the Faith, Grand Duke of Ves, Helena, Novellen and Lorraine, Baron of Renzfeld, Protector of the Heartlanders, Orenian Highlanders, and Farfolk, etcetera

  9. Philip II could be seen that day, all day, praying for the souls of those lost to the curse of Azdromoth. "Surely the Lord would show mercy to those lost souls, manipulated by the vile lizards," the Emperor laments to his trusted friend and soldier, Julian. "If they can be saved, then let us try. Or at the least, we can send them to the Lord, to deliver upon them the judgement only He may administer. Mercy in the face of such profound heresy would be nothing but weakness."
