  3. TANDEM REX CORONATIONIS SUMMI PONTIFICIS CORONATION OF THE LAST KING DŁUGO MOŻE PANOWAĆ NA NIEBIE A painting depicting Saint Arpad Vsevolod Carrion 9th of Sun’s Smile, 1719 His Holiness Siegmund, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth proclaim… A brief history of the Kingdom of Ruska The Crowning of the Rightful King It is with humility that the Holy Canonist Church has not recognised the plight of the peoples of Ruska, named Raevir, for centuries after Prophet Siegmund Carrions reign, and it is with a great reverence for the contributions of the Raev peoples that we, the Holy Mother Church, do seek to remedy this insensitivity rendered to them through our inaction. Thus the Holy Canonist Church, through the will of High Pontiff Siegmund I as Vicar of God, does recognise the lineage of Siegmund Carrion, and thus his rightful heir to the Apostolic Kingdom of Ruska, through his lineage as outlined herein: Siegmund ‘Soothsayer’ Carrion, Apostolic King of Ruska Tobias ‘Rosebud’ Carrion, First Born Son of Siegmund Carrion Alexander ‘The Careless’ Carrion, First Born Son of Tobias Carrion John I Horen of the Johannian line, Successful Claimant to the Apostolic Kingdom of Ruska John II Horen of the Johannian line, First Born Son of John I Horen Sveneld Carrion, Successful Claimant to the Apostolic Kingdom of Ruska Theodore Carrion, First Born Son of Sveneld Carrion Arpad Vsevolod Carrion, First Born Son of Theodore Carrion We, the Holy Canonist Church, through the lineage outlined of the title of Apostolic Kingdom of Ruska, do recognise, officiate, and coronate the living Saint Arpad Vsevolod Carrion to be the rightful and uncontested Apostolic King of Ruska. Following this declaration we, the Holy Mother Church, do condemn any who claim this title unrightfully to perpetual excommunication from the Holy Mother Church, and their claims to be an act against the Holy Canonist Church in its entirety. For to claim an Apostolic Title while lacking the lineage necessary to do so admonishes the Holy Mother Church, and denigrates the Vicar of God.

  4. VICTU MORALITATIS REGULABUNT THE HELLENIC COUNCIL of 1718 On the Virtues and Vices of Men and the Lesser Races A painting depicting High Pontiff Siegmund I, speaking with High Keeper Aeyn I at the Hellenic Council of Renatian Faiths 13th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1718 His Holiness Siegmund, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth proclaim… Within these troubled times we, the faithful flock, do find ourselves to be cast away in a sea of vitriol, its waves crashing against our sensibilities with ever increasing force while its winds rip at our rectitude and its rains threaten to drown our virtues. Yet, even in these dark times we, the faithful, stand steadfast and firm against the onslaught of such decrepit forces as these we see about us. It is with pious grace that our wills do not succumb, and it is fervent belief that guards our souls, and with these, my brothers and sisters, I speak to you of a unity we may find in unexpected spaces. Thus, in the interest of upholding the Divine mandate in the plains of mortal men, the Holy Canonist Church and the Red Faith do find that through open dialogue there is no difference to be found within certain aspects of our combined moralities, and thusly do stand unified in one sole and undeniable truth of Divinity that overarches all beliefs of the land. This revelation of a unified understanding of what causes us goodness and virtue has led the Holy Canonist Church and the Red Faith to vehemently support a unified effort in quelling the aforementioned vitriol, and stand together against the immoralities that plague our combined faithful. The following mandates are unilaterally agreed upon by myself, Siegmund I, High Pontiff of the Holy Canonist Church, and Aeyn I, High Keeper of the Red Faith, to be upheld by the men and women of our faiths without squabble or neglect. Together, as brothers and sisters in virtuous morality, may we stand against the ceaseless corruptions before us. The Divinity of Natural Law I. Clarifying the nature of Divine Law In the lives of the faithful flock we experience a flowing and unseen force that guides the people of GOD together towards His Holy Light, their devotions and prayers and tolerances deviating betwixt one another yet consolidating without error about few, yet robust, ideals that are held universal. These ideals care not for birth, or creed, or culture, or mindset to find themselves propagated, supported, and unrefuted, for they flourish and become ever more rooted as if the very act of devotion cultivates them with the soils of belief and the waters of will. This thriving nature to these beliefs is naught folly, nor circumstantial, nor even a product of augmentation or adjustment of a core belief, instead propagating itself naturally in all beliefs from their very founding. The foundations sharing bricks and mortar with but different houses laid upon them. It is with this understanding that the faithful can, and do on occasion, see others from beyond the reach of His Church providing virtuous deeds and graceful inclinations that would align to those professed by His Holy Canonist Church as truly Holy and Merciful actions, to the same extent in the Red Faith as well. Thus, together in this unity, the Holy Canonist Church and the Red Faith do see our utterly separate and more often at odds beliefs sharing amongst themselves a few key principles that are universal between us. These beliefs having been found to be universally applicable cannot be denied for truly Divinely Inspired works, but as Divinely given seeds to the estates of men so that they may grow great fields of convictions that all share their roots and thusly unite the world in Him. With this, the following writings are to embolden the shared core of ourselves, so that all the faithful flock may witness them without the turning of the cheek in defiance and arrogant ignorance. II. Precepts of life in accordance with Divine Law The fundamentals of Divine Law establish a two fold order of the natural world, one fold enveloping the feminine, while the other the masculine. In this the Divine law stipulates universally, with only the carrying out of its mandates differing between any two faiths. During an exhaustive dialogue, Divine Law is hereby established to be the following; Divine Law concerning the Feminine To the women of the world a natural form of modesty has always been applied, whether it be by the tribals of the unsettled regions through Chieftains and Clan Leaders, or in the more civilized world through the likes of Dukes and Kings. One thing has always been maintained, the necessity for women to be kept in proper modesty during their youth and courting years, so that they may be prepared and capable of retaining their feminine traits intact for marriage and child rearing. In the last few decades upon these expansive lands we have come to know as ours, these standards and expectations have waned and faded for more urgent causes such as political strife or theological debate. Yet they have not been forgotten, and it is now that we faithful must strike up the old traditions of yore to shield ourselves from the corrupting and corrosive nature of the modern concepts of womanhood and mothering. Thus the following expectations are to be held across the entirety of Humanity, so that we may once again foster the strength of our communities through the nurturing care of our women once more. All women, in youth or age, shall be covered in a modest fashion regardless of their position or title in any land or lands they inhabit. This modesty shall entail: Coverings to hide or obscure the shoulders and ankles of all women Women of the courting age and younger may wear their hair loose or covered, while women of married status must have a covering adorned upon their heads at all times Women must not remove their coverings in the presence of men for modesty's sake, unless they be of their Husband or Children All women, in youth or age, must be kept and barred from the actions of Harlots and Night Walkers to protect the sanctity of our youth and community. Any woman that partakes in these actions shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by priest or by public humiliation Any one who aids, or allows these actions to be taken shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by a priest of by public humiliation twice that of the Harlot and/or Night Walker they aided or allowed All women are to engage in a traditional courting process, with their familial patriarchs consent, of prospective partners. Relations outside of this are to be considered Harlotry All women are to be kept and barred from consorting with those of other races Should a woman partake in this action, his body shall be cleansed by fire Divine Law concerning the Masculine To the men of the world a natural form of propriety has always been applied, whether it be by the tribals of the unsettles regions through Chieftains and Clan Leaders, or in the more civilized world through the likes of Dukes and Kings. One thing has always been maintained, the necessity for men to be kept in proper propriety during their youth and courting years, so that they may be prepared and capable of retaining their masculine traits for marriage. In the last few decades upon these expansive lands we have come to know as ours, these standards and expectations have waned and faded for more urgent causes such as political strife or theological debate. Yet they have not been forgotten, and it is now that we faithful must strike up the old traditions of yore to shield ourselves from the corrupting and corrosive nature of the modern concepts of manhood. Thus the following expectations are to be held across the entirety of Humanity, so that we may once again foster the strength of our communities through the disciplining of our men once more. All men, in youth and age, must be kept and barred from the actions of whoring and adultery to protect the sanctity of our community. Any man that partakes in these actions shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by priest or by fire Any man that partakes in these actions with another man shall have their body cleansed by public humiliation Any one who aids, or allows these actions to be taken shall be cut from the communication of the faithful, and their body cleansed by a priest of by public humiliation twice that of the Whorer and/or Adulterer they aided or allowed All men are to engage in a traditional courting process, with the consent of the woman's familial patriarch, of prospective partners. Relations outside of this are to be considered Whoring Men who engage in whoring shall be refused the sanctity of marriage until they are cleansed. Any man who refuses the sanctity of marriage to a bride deemed suitable by the Holy Canonist Church shall be recognised as a homosexual and summarily cleansed by public humiliation All men are to be kept and barred from consorting with those of other races Should a man partake in this action, her body shall be cleansed by fire III. The Erroneous nature of the ‘Nenzing’ Ethic For too long have the secularist lordlings found across the breadth and expanse of Humanity thought themselves above the Divine Judgment and Edicts passed down to the faithful. Stepping upon the notion of Divine Law without care, compassion, or knowledge of what it is they tread upon. For too long have the faithful held their breath and for too long has the world been drowned in deafening silence to their false calls of savior. It is with this backdrop that we unitedly oppose the contents of the Nenzing Proclamation. Ethic of Equality The opening remark of the Nenzing Proclamation is as follows: “And GOD made man equal in all things” An easily misleading statement for one not versed upon the creation mythos of the Holy Canonist Church as surely a self proclaimed man of faith as Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna would know. For nowhere in our Holy Scrolls mentions that the first Man and first Woman were made to be equal, nor of any other man or woman thereafter. A cursory look at simply the anatomy of each would tell any reasonable thinker that these two specimens are indeed separate and unique to one another, let alone equal in any one thing. Furthering this thought, it goes so far as to break the Divine Law most irreparably through the possibility that, as he would have you believe, the Divine did not seek to order the world clearly, with beasts arranged in a hierarchical manner of feeding as but one example. Should we turn our attention to the secular, by this very notion Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna would throw away any idea that he is the rightful Emperor, for how can a man equal to all others claim dominance over them? How can he sit upon his throne and cast judgement of any others equal claim to his own station, if not but to spit upon this very notion of equality he so effortlessly puts forth as a basic principle? It is clear to any reasonable mind that these notions of equality cannot work so long as a single man claims that he is above them. Following this thinking then, it is of clarity that the Divine Law presents itself clearly in regards to the ‘equality’ of Humankind, for it simply cannot exist in a world not based upon fiction. For even should every man and woman maintain the same abilities of mind, what does he say to the innate differences of the body? Does he truly hold that a woman is more competent in militarism, a man more competent in child birth, than they are by fact of both social and physical limitation? The Divine Law is yet to be broken by an inkling such as this, and only proves that any thought of Equality amongst Humanity is but a tale spun up by a man who desperately wishes to garner the support of those not capable of understanding the full depth of what it is he proposes. Ethic of Liberty This document goes on to express the goodness of Liberty, purporting it to be a heightened form of governance that may only be achieved by the most refined of cultures and kingdoms. To this, it is a laughable claim to propagate. For within the demesne where Liberty reigns there are an endless supply of Vagabonds, Harlots, Adulterers, Atheists, Whoremongers, and Hypocrites to name but a few, while simultaneously they deny the Divine will and Law in favour of man-made distractions that reap nothing but sin upon those that take them unto themselves. An anarchy settles deep within the hearts and minds of those who look upon Divine mandate as a suggestion, for they deny these bonds that tether them to a place of reasonability while they turn and fill their desires eagerly. A chaotic showing of savagery and debauchery flows well from the fount of egocentrism, each speaking boldly that their version of morality is truly good while allowing all those around them to say the same. Society torn asunder by the whims and inklings of its members and all at odds with one another upon the fundamental questions that are posed by the world, an anarchy they purport to be true freedom. Freedom, a thing they bastardise to suit their purposes. For should any man rise and say, through his own freedom, that they act in sin he is cast down and trampled beneath the foot of tyranny and oppression. For in a society without a governing morality through the Divine the only morality they know is that of no morality, and through this they turn themselves into the very thing they say they oppose. A twisted idea held high by twisted men. Yet, what is more free than a man whose only limits are those of Divine morality? A man who can see clearly through his streets for they are barren of filth, who can speak openly without fear of offending another, who can look upon the irrational and recognise it for what it is without worry that he shall be flogged by the community for daring to question it? A truly free world is given to the faithful, yet it is these destroyers of freedom that seek to place legislation and false ideals upon the station of Divine mandate. The Condition Of The Faithful I. On the Divinity of Mankind and the Subhumans There is no greater evidence of the divine nature of mankind than the enduring dominion and uncontestable supremacy which we, humanity have exerted over the countless ages of this world. Mankind can only be challenged, be weakened by its own ilk. Thus the man is clearly the favoured of the divine, the most favoured of the heaven. Rendering all those varying from this divine blueprint of form and function. Of Mind and Flesh as aberrant to the divine law of the heavens. It is humanity alone that forms the most stable, most prosperous, most pious realms. Our might rendering our realms safe from genuine threat nigh the wrath of the divine. Yet those great blessings bestowed upon us by divinity are in turn our greatest curse. The abberants in their uncountable hordes do flock to our prosperous realms. Seeking to exploit our competence, our fortune for their own ends. They bask in the security we provide, relish in the riches and treasures produced and captured. Marvel at our palaces, dance in our streets. Yet it is all a rot, a great cancer festering ever growing at the very heart of our realm. To propose that aberrants, varying from the divine plan could ever exist as equals within the realms of man is the very height of folly. Their origins are steeped in sin, in failure, in incompetence and vice. And it is this foul stain that they render upon our own civilization merely with their presence. Debasing the morals of our youth, flooding our markets with cheap foreign goods, sabotaging us in war, in statecraft, in our eternal labour of peace. Thus we, the keepers of the gate. Doctors of the soul gazing upon a grand edifice evermore burdened by rot and disease, must excise this tumour, that the body may remain healthy and whole. No longer shall race mixers be tolerated amongst the glorious realms of Renatus.No longer shall foreigners be permitted to freely enjoy the luxuries earned by hard spilt Renatian blood. Drastic action is called for in this most pressing time of war, that we do ensure that the great Renatian realm does not suffer from internal sabotage. Either illicit or explicit, conscious or unconscious. Constant vigilance is paramount on the part of not only clerical authorities, but also secular authorities nigh even the average patriotic human unashamed of his superiority. Thus we do undertake the following actions. Subhumans who do not serve the divine state of Renatus at the pleasure of a Renatian must be registered to the Society for Moral Health. Those registered and deemed acceptable enough to remain within the confines of the Empire shall be obliged to bear an arm band, collar or tatoo marking their status as a permitted subhuman. Unregistered subhumans found within the empire must be immediately processed and registered by the S.M.H or they shall be marked via brand to the forehead and ejected from the realm. II. The curse of the Magi There exists, as a constant reminder of the eternal presence of the Fallen, those mortal souls who would take unto themselves eldritch powers. Rejecting the role placed upon them by the divine these individuals reject divinity itself. Succumbing to the temptations of the Fallen that they may maximize their hedonistic desires. That they may be ‘free’. ‘Freedom’, a caustic word for cowardly men. Why should any man need freedom when the course is clear. Unquestioned and complete obedience to the imperative. To the divine. Anything less can result in nothing other than damnation. Yet these degenerates, these apostates insist in spitting in the face of the divine that they may satiate some base animalistic needs. That they may subvert the divine law in the short term to satisfy some grandiose ambition. Yet none can escape the divine forever. For its law, is unbreakable, and eternal. All must one day face judgement. So too must these, most grievous of offenders. For further proof look no further than the realms of Haense, a realm of cravens and oath breakers. Claiming mandate from the almighty creator whilst it harbours witches and daemonic agents in its midst. The rampant animalistic nature of the savage eldar of the woods is even moreso of a testament. Infamous are they, witches of the woods, for their sexual deviancy in all its forms. What further evidence is needed when the truth is plain before us. Witchcraft and the antics of the Magi blacken the soul and twist the very fabric of our divine creation. It must therefore, to a last be wiped out. Every olde tome containing a shred of witchcraft will be burnt. Every edifice sheltering them, shall be torn to the ground. Those creatures embedded with innate demonry shall be given the mercy of a pyre. For they too must be saved from themselves. Furthermore the foulness of Witches and Magi, cannot be suffered any longer. They must, one by one be taken. Marked and bound. That they may never again exploit their foul witch craft. The [insert regulatory faith group] shall capture each of these offenders and imprison them. Subhecting them to rehabilitatory practices. Ensuring they are both incapable of the execution of witchcraft and unwilling to ever pursue it again.

  6. INTERROGATUS EST APOSTATA THE QUESTIONING OF AN APOSTATE 10th of Sigismund’s End 1717 His Holiness Siegmund, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth mock… To the fool who calls himself a Holy man, let me remind you of the occurrences that took place around the time of Aurelis Horen’s attempt of ousting the rightfully elected High Pontiff and use his militaristic might to force the weak and simple Synod to attempt a coup of the Immaculate Throne of GODs Church. For what was written within the Tenth Golden Bull of Rhodesia does indeed predate that which occurred after its writing. I have included a small snippet from my own personal archives so that all may see: And a snippet from my own archives of the unforgivable sin of a false election, for the Synod was not even called into Eccumenical Council to discuss the successorship, despite what lies he unfurls to confuse the less knowledgeable: Held within the Tenth Golden Bull of Rhodesia was the dismissal of the Synod precisely to safeguard the Holy Mother Church from the corruption of weak and infertile men, removing them from any authority to not only remove the current High Pontiff, but elect a new one and avoid a successorship crisis within the Papacy. Yet, the weak minded fools of the once Synod ignored this when they eagerly lofted on high the first of the Anti-Pontiffs, Elwood. Declaring him to be the rightful successor and beginning the schism that carries forth to this very day. This fool rebrandishes the history of the crisis as if these men of the once Synod truly felt the necessity of deposing their High Pontiff at the words of a mortal man, thus turning their backs upon Holy Canonist Tradition of upholding the Faith in the face of the greatest tests. It was not some mere defenceless boy who slaughtered the clergy and innocence on that day as this worm tongued welp would suggest, but a man placed highly within the Imperial forces. Nor was it but one voice that mourned the slaughter of their people, but many. But how could you suppose a man who was not present, nor knowledgeable upon the subject understand its intricacies? Especially when his words twist what was a deposition of a High Pontiff into but the mere reorganizing of a pesky monk. Even when he muses upon the thought of himself being what he is, the anti-Pontiff, he gracelessly hides behind the Pertinaxi line which he acknowledges his so called excommunication of. For, if he truly believes that the thought that a multitude of uncoronated emperors would somehow delegitimize my claims, then surely he sees the Church as no more than a political weapon for the vices and greeds of the unworthy men who wish to utilize it against one another in the mortal plain. We see this most astoundingly in practice within his so called ‘Faith’, for through political disagreement he sent the weazel Zachary out to the Helena Cathedral to board its doors so that the public may not even pray within the sacred and sanctified halls of GODs mortal home. If this does not speak of one wholly corrupted by aspirations of some divinely given right to rule over the spirits of men, then how can he possibly explain his actions in this regard? Or even bring up the thought of Canon Law as he dances across its pages with muddied shoes? The last, and saddest, assertion he makes is to claim that I believe Godfrey III to be the ruler of Man. Clearly his eyes have failed him in his reading of my words, for he mistakes the lowering to comparisons between Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna and Godfrey III to mock his small minded priest to some sort of grandiose show of support to his claim that I am not even sure he asserts. He even miss understands that Aurelius Horen was never coronated by the Holy Mother Church as the ruler of Man, only accepted as the de facto ruler of Man for he did govern all men at one time. Thus, he even calls into question the claim of Aurelius Horen to being the divine ruler of Man through his lackluster musings and further weakens what attempt of an argument he provides. Even going so far as to miss that if he should follow his own logic then surely he sees that if Godfrey III is not the rightful ruler of Man through his bloodline, that at one time did rule over the United Human Body, then Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna holds even less of a claim to that title for his has not. Leading to the puzzling circumstance we find ourselves in with himself supporting a weaker claim to the governance of Humanity instead of acting as the High Pontiffs have acted for centuries, mediators of men, and thusly attempting to quiet the discontent between these two who are so opposed. What amuses me most, perhaps, of his writing, is the thought that he might be capable of dismissing any man from GODs service by simply writing upon a slip of paper and showing it to his mother for approval. For if he truly did have any authority that he claims to hold, that being of the true and unsullied Canonist Faith and proper Vicar of GOD, he would not hide these words at the bottom of a long winded diatribe of his own excuse of an intellectual proof of certainty. No, he would write them proudly and boldly across a document dedicated to their purpose, yet what can one expect from a man who hold an effeminate attitude towards proper governance of the Faithful? I leave you with these words, lest they not confuse you too deeply; “But finally it came that the last virtuous ruler of men, Daniel of the line of Horen, departed from his throne into the north, to seek the path of Joren and Owyn. And the kingdom of Oren fell to the rule of those who cast out his heir; witches, consorters with Iblees, Saulicans, necromancers, and the destroyers of the virtuous.” SANCTI APOSTOLI EVARISTUS ET CLEMENS: DE QUORUM POTESTATE ET AUCTORITATE CONFIDIMUS, IPSI INTERCEDANT PRO NOBIS AD DOMINUM. ☩ IN NOMINE PATRIS, et Horenus, et Exaltus Honorem.

  7. REPROBATIO DEPULIT TYRANNUMQUE DISAPPROVAL OF A PRETENDER 21st of Harren’s Folley, 1717 His Holiness Siegmund, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth reply… Dear brothers and sisters of the Holy Canonist Church, it has come to my attention that one so-called priest held beneath the Anti-Pontiff Everard V, a tarnishing of such a Saintly name for sure, has wished to slander you for your steadfast beliefs in the continuation of the rightful successorship of both the Imperial Throne and the Pontificate. This man, as best as he can, slanders the good name of the Empire through little more than pathetic attempt of drawing sympathy from the actions done during its founding. He even goes so far to say that Sigmar Lothar Barbanov swore fealty for he recognised the strength of a united Humanity. If this was the case, as suredly he purports, then why is it that it is Haense that has rebelled from the Empire now? If Haense had recognised this strength so early on, then most assuredly they would stand by the Emperor until his demise much the same as they had done under Emperor Philip Frederick before his cold passing. Perhaps the men of Hanseti had swore for fear of their destruction if they withheld, instead of any real dedication or devotion to the cause? Perhaps, the men of Hanseti forgot the masses of bodies upon the Czena River that came after the flood of violence they caused in that war as well? Perhaps. These men wish nothing more than to slaughter fellow Canonists for their own perverse love, or ritual? Even now, while he writes, vassals beneath Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna are becoming uneasy, the Curonese changing banners not a month ago as a sign of his fracturing estate. Lo’ he then besmirches the good man Godfrey III as a form of shadow or implied wraith, even stooping to the blood that flows in his veins. Yet, he conveniently forgets that it was the green of Staunton banners flying over Johannesburg before its decimation, or that these same banners flew above the North until it capitulated to his kin. He forgets that intermarriage of these families unites two lines that had conquested the Human world individually from one another, and forgets that by this token Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna cannot compare in the slightest by blood to Godfrey III as a leader of men. He then asks questions that truly should be directed not upon Godfrey III who upholds the Imperium of Aurelius Horen, but upon Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna. For what gain is there in drawing out yet another civil war but to create devastation and death in his wake? What purpose does revolt serve but to further his own egocentrism and inflate his own self worth? Why turn against one once sworn to if not but to seek to replace him, and by token replace the so called ‘exalted’ line from Aurelius Horen, the ‘GOD Emperor’ of mankind with one of inferior stock? For in his next few words he directs his dialogue to myself, calling me a coward as if he has not hid from the Renatian soldiers as they passed through the Hanseti lands freely. Hypocrisy is the mark of a sinful man and it is in his writing that one may glimpse at the desolation of his own soul, for he points to Aurelius Horen who had, as he notes, ‘aided in banishing’ myself. Firstly, Aurelius Horen proclaimed himself to be GOD, if that was true then surely GOD could banish a single man without the aid of any others. If he believes Aurelius Horen needed others to banish me, such as the imperial army or the Synod, then we know most assuredly that he is not GOD and therefore the schism the vipers brought upon the Church was their own doing as corrupters of the Faith and not that of my renunciation of Aurelis’ claim to BE the Godhead. Secondly, if Aurelius Horen banished myself, and he uses this as support for why I should not be believed, then the direct descendant of this man who welcomes me with open arms without a word of previous banishment would clearly lay the matter to rest and reinstill Faith that I am truly what I am, the true and unchanged High Pontiff of the Canonist Church. To think any other would by to again lay down at the feet of hypocrisy. He then compares Aurelius Horen to the likes of Joseph ‘Joey’ Marna, a ruler who united Humanity beneath his banner to a ruler who has broken Humanity asunder with his viperous deeds. Shall I truly go into depth upon how this can only be connected within the mind of one who sees no issue with comparing these two as if they are but one? And in his last comments he notes that Oren is the lifeblood of Humanity, yet it was not Oren that united Humanity beneath Aurelius Horen, a man he claims to be the ultimate of goodness, and so his hypocrisy shows once more for if Aurelius Horen might unite Humanity from without Oren, then Oren cannot be the life blood of Humanity nor can it even be said to be required for such an occurrence to be undertaken. I leave you, my brothers and sister in Faith, with the following text from the Holy Scroll of Auspice, so we may reflect upon the revelation of the apocalypse wholly: “And Glory treadeth the world upon a steed of smoke, and he is uncovered, and goeth forth to subjugate” SANCTI APOSTOLI EVARISTUS ET CLEMENS: DE QUORUM POTESTATE ET AUCTORITATE CONFIDIMUS, IPSI INTERCEDANT PRO NOBIS AD DOMINUM. ☩ IN NOMINE PATRIS, et Horenus, et Exaltus Honorem. Amen. ☩ W IMIĘ OJCA, i Horena, i vysoka wznoisłw. Amin. REJOICE! GOD’S FAITHFUL TOIL NO LONGER. Velykyy plan jest wypaczony przez povstannya
  8. STATUM RELIGIONIS PERPLEXUS BEMUSEMENT UPON THE STATE OF DEVOTION 14th of Owyn’s Light, 1717 His Holiness Siegmund, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth bemuse… To the Brothers and Sisters who have been without a true and proper Pontiff by which to guide them for the course of the multitude of years I have been lost to the whimsical nature of the sea, I write to you this day upon that which I have come to reflect upon in my first year upon this new continent of Acras. It has taken me far longer than I had hoped to fully begin to grasp that which has taken place since my forced leave by Aurelius Horen, the so called ‘Divine’ Emperor, and in that time it seems to me that the good faith by which we wish to serve GOD dutifully and fully through has been wholly corrupted against this very action. Bemusement of the State of the Political Realm: Upon my return it had baffled me initially to learn that a once united and strong Canonist people had, once again, been divided amongst themselves by greed, and sin, and hatred untoward one another. Yet this is not the full extent of my bewilderment, for to learn that the so called ‘Divine’ bloodline of Horen had rebelled against themselves had truly thrown me to the wayside of expectancy unexpectedly. Truly, for the blood lines of the Horens to bear their teeth and gnash at each others necks, only a few short years after Aurelius Horen had abdicated his throne and disappeared into the sunset of time, is most definitely a sign that perhaps all came to pass as a punishment by GOD for abandoning Him and upholding a pretender in His place as a sullied icon. The same punishment handed down to he who did the same to the once deposed High Pontiff Theodosius II before meeting his own end at the physical manifestation of his cold deeds towards GOD’s humble servants. Bemusement of the State of the Religious Realm: Now in the modern age that is this war, I see two who claim divine right above one another. In this, I most certainly detest, yet perhaps there is merit to one cause that the other does lack. For instance, upon my return the Emperor Godfrey III wholly accepted me and all that that would bring without a blink of doubt in his eye, much more than the viper tongued words of those who whispered amongst themselves blasphemies and derogations towards GOD’s true Pontiff. Once more, to learn that a Holy Orenian Emperor had been coronated brought forth an anger in myself that I had not felt since Aurelius’ first proclamation, for how can a pretender to GOD’s most high mortal station ever hope to coronate a Divinely inspired ruler if he himself is not Divine by right of following in the footsteps of those men who were excommunicated for their treachery against Him? Especially when the coronation requires the Holy Relic of the Crown of Horen, an artifact that I am in possession of, for it to be truly done to the letter of what GOD requires? No, there is but one Emperor upon Acras and beside him but one High Pontiff, and to those men who look upon Joseph Marna with any esteem, I beg of you to truly head my words. You stand beside a pretender bearing a false crown, given to him by a pretender bearing false Laurels, all the while the holy men that surround them both dance and cheer for the continuation of bloodshed and paganistic ritual sacrifice of their enemies. Reflections of an aging man: In these last words, brother and sisters in GOD, I speak in the most plain of tongue for your understanding; Let us not be drawn into hatred for these men who rise against their true Emperor and throw off the true Faith from their shoulders, for we should pity them and their misgivings for one day each will receive his penance as he deserves from GOD above. Pray for them, borthers and sisters, perhaps there is hope yet for their souls.

  9. DE REDITU IN PONTIFICEM THE RETURN OF THE PONTIFF An artists rendition of High Pontiff Jude I sailing to the new world of Atlas 6th of Sun’s Smile, 1716 The waters rippled lazily as a soft wind blew across the expanse of the great Ocean, it’s colour a dark green murk beneath the light blue of the skies above. It would be silent if not for the periodic cackling screech of the seagulls as they flew about the small dingy, the small boat jostling listlessly even to the smallest murmur of a wave as it made its way starkly against the horizon. Beneath the proverbial rats of the skies, came the more melodically paced grunts and laboured breathing of the men manning the oars. Their bodies, once muscled and fit yet now almost naught but lanky bones covered with a thin mat of skin, pressed earnestly against the oars with little relief from the hanging backdrop of the unfilled sails. Amidst these men sat one who seemed nearly thrice their age, for his hair hung low and long about him as if it was to be his clothes entirely. The men in their dingy rowed for yet another day, and for another night the men slept as best they could for they exchanged watches of the night sky so that they might not drift irreparably off course. This is the way they had existed for years since the last ship of the great nations moved beyond the horizon from themselves, their progress slowed by the lack of sails or men to man the oars as those great behemoths had supply of. The week prior to them departing from the fleets company being marked by a storm that had thrown Bogdan from their boat unceremoniously, their uncle being swallowed by the thrashing sea instantly and leaving them at an odd number. Their hope had dwindled and was replaced with the methodic movements of the oars, their dreams turned not from earthly pleasures but of those wonders they might find once their toil had ended in the skies above. The sounds of the seagulls and the slapping of oar against water replaced what was joviality amongst the pitifully few crew months after their departure from the main fleet, leaving a horrid sense of unspoken despair that all the men shared. Vitaly Radovic pressed his remaining arm against the now perfectly smooth oar handle, while his cousin Gleb pressed at the same time beside him, the dingy lurching forward only a few inches before its speed dipped once again before the next thrust of their labours. Eyes glossed over, neither of them saw what came first as a trick of the mind, a mirage, but later grew to certainty before the ever watchful gaze of their kin, Siegmund. A bellow of excitement for the first time in living memory came from the aged and decrepit man, his hand lifting shakily forward to the west, but one word escaping his parched throat “Land” before he broke into a violent bout of coughing. The two men raised their heads, their eyes losing the glaze of hopelessness, as they too saw the landmass before them emerge from the dark green of the waters before them, their blistered and cracked skin flexing as they broke into broad and cheerful smiles as new energy they had not known to be within them burst forth to their limbs. The trio had found Arcas. The dingy twisted and moaned, its wood and bindings flexing under the stress of the rough waters of the isle it passed through them. It had taken another two days for the men to reach the coasts since their sighting, their newfound energy now depleted as they once again fell into the methodic movement they had known for so long, however the silence was shattered between them. Vitaly mused about the foods they would find once landed while Gleb spoke of the land they could once again walk on, and what goodness would come from having a piece of it for themselves once more. While the others babbled and laughed between each other, Siegmund sat in silence, his gaze fixated on the rolling green of the trees that covered the land and the birds that inhabited them. The first time the trio landed their dingy upon the coast they ran it onto a soft sanded beach, and in their excitement they nearly forgot to secure the dingy or help their elder upon the shores. Yet, once both were done the would be settlers came across the warm sands of the beach and into the shaded growth of the forest beyond, their eyes searching for anything they could eat, their hands grasping and working at the foliage hastily. By the end of day, the trio were full of leaves and other sorts of plants as they sat resting and watched the sun die over the ocean that was their prison. The second time they landed, it was upon a rocky coastline. Gleb, having explored heavily the first landing site, insisted they continue into the isle so that they might find a more suitable area to keep themselves, for he had discovered swine trails that gave him an uneasy feeling for they had no weapons to defend themselves from the beasts. The rocks of this coast gave Siegmund a great trial to traverse them, and so the trio was forced back onto their dingy and continue. The third time, they landed at the mouth of a river. Briefly the three discussed of the likelihood of a settlement, if this was truly where the fleet had landed, being further up and all agreed it was best to continue onward and not tarry. The fourth and final time they landed, they did so on the edge of the river after travelling what seemed to be far enough inland. It is here that they met their first foreign man, a hunter by the name of Terrance. The trio had stumbled across his cabin as they made their way around the river, which resulted in a great fest compared to the rations they had subsisted off of upon the dingy, they were then guided North-West, to the city of Helena. High Pontiff Siegmund I had come.
  10. Siegmund chuckles, knowing this is a pathetic attempt to retrieve what is not rightfully the Anti-Pontiffs.
  11. QUARUM DECLARATIONEM FIDEI Clarification of Faith 5th of Sun’s Smile, 1691 His Holiness Siegmund, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Metropolitan of Rhodesia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Pilgrim to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD doth decree… To the Faithful men and women of the people of GOD, who hold dear and serve Him in life with purity, and conviction, I, High Pontiff Siegmund I, do extend out to you a branch of learning, and clarification of Faith. At times, the Faithful of this world approach the Holy Mother Church seeking answers to their queries upon the Dogmatic principles, as well as those questions that arise from uncertainty within newly formed institutions or ways of life that find themselves amongst these pious people. Questions deriving from a lack of formal, and absolute answer. It is with this, that I do open the College of Bishops to take any question, clarification, or reinterpretation requests from the general flock of GOD, so that they might be presented fully to a Council. With this, the process for these requests shall be as herein enclosed. All requests to be submitted to the College of Bishops are hereby decreed to be referred to as Writ of Precept, their function to be as follows: 1. A Writ of Precept is to be a written document of the precept within the Faith concerning Dogma, Theology, or a requested change to either of these two. 2. A Write of Precept is to contain the precept in full, as well as any evidence, theological argument, or any supporting works to the request made of the College of Bishops, with the question stated clearly, or the requested change fully elaborated on 3. A Writ of Precept is to be sealed by a Bishop among the College of Bishops once he deems it acceptable, with only sealed Writs of Precept being deliberated upon by a Council Once presented to a Council convened to discuss the matter, the Writs of Precept shall be cared for as follows: 1. All Councils shall deliberate for One Saints Week upon all Writs of Precept 2. Once a deliberation has ended, and the Council has cast vote upon the clarification or adoption of a Writ of Precept, the decision is absolute as with any decision of Council, and shall be published at the most convenient time 3. Once a Writ of Precept has been accepted to the Council, no alteration, amendment, or adjustment shall be accepted. A Writ of Precept may not be submitted after Council deliberation with the same meaning, purpose, or idea as any Writ of Precept already admitted to Council SANCTI APOSTOLI EVARISTUS ET CLEMENS: DE QUORUM POTESTATE ET AUCTORITATE CONFIDIMUS, IPSI INTERCEDANT PRO NOBIS AD DOMINUM. ☩ IN NOMINE PATRIS, et Horenus, et Exaltus Honorem.

  12. You can have credibility through rp, you don't need a special deity to have it.
  13. Canonism is a product of other failed ideologies, so not sure what you mean by that. A theocratic culture is being sent into descendants dreams, and yet only gorundyr can interact with the deity as I understand it. Not sure how that makes sense, and only reinforces my idea that this lore is solely for a particular group to benefit.
  14. @PosidonX7 Just because anyone CAN participate, does not mean everyone WILL participate, or that the culture will maintain itself for a long duration of time to really make this lore relevant to others. @MajesticOwyn so then you made a theocratic culture, which is fine. However, a culture does not work the same way as a religion would work, particularly speaking of the inability to ‘join’ a culture. Cultures are learned from birth and a consistent people group, a religion requires neither to flourish.
  15. I’m not basing my reasoning on the fact human religion has no new lore. I am basing it on the fact this lore is written for a small group of people on the server, and not for a larger group like a deity should be aimed at (look at the other aspects, or even the aenguls or daemons in general). If you agree that it is a religion, then why do you repeatedly say it is in fact a culture? Perhaps all mentions of culture should be replaced with religion to keep the idea consistent and understandable.
