  1. PONTIFICAL LETTER WRIT OF DISSOLUTION: OF THE SACRAMENT OF MATRIMONY Most Beloved Brethren, Health and Pontifical Benediction. We write this declaration from Our most Holy Office with sorrow to institute the dismantling of a union which has lasted many years. Marriage remains one of humanity’s most holy sacraments, inspired by the example of the Exalted Horen and Saint Julia. Yet, after close investigation and discussion, We have come to the conclusion that the union between Wilhelm Otto Morovar and Henrietta Nikola de Joannes cannot continue. Therefore, We hereby declare the union of Wilhelm Otto Morovar and Henrietta Nikola de Joannes dissolved on the grounds of marital abandonment on the side of the female spouse. The marriage will not now, not ever be fruitful for the two. Their relations are cold and no children have been born from the marriage and still to this day remains unconsummated. With the union dissolved they are permitted by the Holy Office to remarry, but we implore both to take more caution in seeking matrimony going forward and demand that both seek Our permit for future unions.

  4. PEACE AND BLESSINGS CALLING THE FAITHFUL 13th of Horen’s Calling, 1890 IST - 11th of Tov And Yermey 443 E.S. HIS HOLINESS PONTIAN IV, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD does decree… Most beloved faithful, after a brief investigation of our own, we have witnessed the depravity of Serheim in person. Not that much was needed to convince us. In our youth, we were abducted by the very same Xionists of Serheim. Through their evil sorceries, they showed us an unthinkable vision; God was dead. How dare they fabricate such lies to dismantle God’s Church? Furthermore, there were two vampires among them, how can one be a defendant of Humankind when one has to consume the blood of the living to sustain themselves? They deceive only themselves. We give them all this one final mercy, surrender yourselves and be freed of your corruption. When you are caught in the fields your mercy will be the T’s embrace. You are not the shield of Humankind. The only defendant of Humanity is Humanity itself. No corrupted monstrosity can claim to be God’s champion. When once you are destroyed, you are restored to life through the voidal powers of Iblees. God has given you one life in this plane and once you perish, you join him in the Seven Skies in paradise, that is the natural order of things. But you in your greed have extended your lives, unnaturally and in exchange, your souls have been claimed by the Denier. The Mother Church by the grace of God shepherd of his greatest flock, hereby calls all the Canonist Princes of Almaris to CRUSADE against SERHEIM and its DISCIPLES. The Crusade fulfilled when their lair and followers are destroyed and its fields are devoted to saint Caius, patron of Humor and the Fight Against Undead. ALL good Canonists must arm themselves with aurum and steel and venture to Serheim and aid in its utter destruction. All who die in holy battle against the darkspawn shall have immediate remission of sins, this granted to them through the power of God who invests this as a blessing in taking up arms for a holy cause. The High Pontificate condemns all with a fearful anathema, all those who proclaim the Xionist heresies, and those who dare molest those engaging in this mission for God. Should any go against this crusade for God and defend the heathens that have attacked the Harvest Confederacy, by the authority of God and with the sanction of the Chair of Saint Daniel, they too shall be anathematized and find their decimation from God’s plane. SEREMUS DELENDA EST DEUS VULT
  5. PEACE AND BLESSINGS PONTIFICAL LETTER REGARDING HUMAN & ELF MARRIAGES 17th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1889 - 15th of Vzmey and Hyff, 442 E.S. HIS HOLINESS PONTIAN IV, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD does write… Some months ago We received a letter from an unknown Canonist in dire need of council. This man wrote to Us, explaining that he had taken a wife and the two were blessed with children. It was only when the children were born that the man saw that there was some sort of trickery involved, the children were clearly of Elven descent, confronting his wife they discovered together that she was an Elf, her true race hidden with alchemy as a babe. The Mother Church is glad you have found the courage within to confront this matter. Many would simply dismiss it and continue to live an unvirtuous life. We must tell the truth, no matter how painful it is to you and yours, dear writer; In the Scroll of Virtue, Canticle of Temperance it is written; “So I am the Most High, and in pursuit of My Virtue, I bid my faithful this: You shall not lie with your kin, nor those of other tribes, and none shall lie together but in holy union.” The Holy Scrolls and thus the Church, does not accept unions between a Human and an Elf. The Church will without second thought celebrate the union between an Elven man and an Elven woman, but never the matrimony of a Human and an Elf. You must come forth and speak with Us in person, so we may annul your marriage if it was ever celebrated by the Church. The misguided Descendants may deny God, His prophets and His good Scrolls, but it is crystal clear that any offspring born from mixed unions are twice cursed, in this case, brought into our world to live short lives and die without their own brood. It is unfortunate, but in Our eyes, the children of this specific union are illicit, in other words, bastard born. Fret not, neither you, your woman or your children are damned yet. Through the Church, you are offered baptism and penance. This offer goes to all in similar dilemmas. The Mother Church is an entity of mercy, it offers second chances.

  6. PEACE AND BLESSINGS THE SIXTEENTH GOLDEN BULL OF JORENUS 13th of Horen’s Calling, 1887 IST - 11th of Wzuvar And Byvca 440 E.S. HIS HOLINESS PONTIAN IV, High Pontiff of the Church of the Canon, Archbishop of Visigia, Successor of the High Priesthood of the Church, Supreme Pontiff of the Church of True Faith, Keeper of the Canon, Missionary to Aeldin, High Servant to the Exalted's Testaments, Humble Servant of the Faithful and Vicar of GOD does decree… TABLE OF CONTENTS SECTION I - RESTRUCTURING THE SEPTARCHY SECTION II - CURIA APPOINTMENTS SECTION III - DIOCESAN RESTRUCTURING SECTION IV - ON THESES SECTION V - A REMINDER TO BISHOPS SECTION VI - ASSESSING THE ATLAS OF SAINTS SECTION VII - RECOGNIZING SEDAN SECTION I - RESTRUCTURING THE SEPTARCHY With the abrupt disappearance of good Cardinal James and Our ascension to the Holy Office, the Septarchy has been reduced to only three sitting members. The Church pays its respects to Cardinal James for his leal service, but it must continue without him. JAMES CARDINAL PROVIDENTIA 1882-1887 ADRIAN CARDINAL ALBAROSA 1863-1887 It is through Our Apostolic Right, bestowed unto Us through the Laurel derived from the Exalted that We appoint the respectable Father Cyrus of Rudr and Markos of Joannesport to replace Cardinal James and Ourself. They shall be styled His Eminence and take the names Cyrus Cardinal Albarosa and Markos Cardinal Aquila. CYRUS CARDINAL ALBAROSA 1887- MARKOS CARDINAL AQUILA 1887- SECTION II - CURIA APPOINTMENTS Furthermore, We must make appointments to the Curia. Departing in his position as Our Secretary is Cardinal Viktor, having served for many good years as scrivener and advisor to Our predecessor, His Holiness Tylos III. We have other plans for His Eminence. VIKTOR PONTIFICAL SECRETARIAT 1863-1887 Filling the empty seats of the Curia, are our newly appointed Cardinals, their Eminences Cyrus of Rudr and Markos of Joannesport. The former will be assuming the office of the Prelate of the Clergy. Father Markos is appointed as Pontifical Secretary, advising as Our theologian and assisting in Our Writing. Furthermore replacing Ourselves as Vice-Chancellor will be the humble Cardinal Viktor, leaving his office as secretary is appointed to serve as Our hand. We bestow upon them all the rights and responsibilities that come with the Office. VIKTOR VICE-CHANCELLOR 1887- CYRUS PRELATE OF THE CLERGY 1887- MARKOS PONTIFICAL SECRETARIAT 1887- SECTION III - DIOCESAN RESTRUCTURING With the recent developments of temporal authorities. We see it fitting to make these amendments and appointments to Our diocesan territories. ARCHDIOCESE OF ALBAROSA - Once encompassing the entire Kingdom of Oren, excluding its capital of Vienne. Redefined now as encompassing the entire Harvest Confederation. It is to be administered by His Eminence, Cyrus Cardinal Albarosa @MCVDK DIOCESE OF AQUILA - Encompassing the lands of Sedan and Du Loc. We appoint His Eminence Markos Cardinal Aquila @bugbytes21 SECTION IV - ON THESES Before our election to the Immaculate Throne, We together with the Synod successfully voted to remove the thesis method of ordainment, believing it to be an archaic way of judging whether an acolyte is suitable for the priesthood. An acolyte should not be judged by his finesse in writing the most flowery thesis, but by his knowledge of the Canon. We have developed an exam, which will be administered to able acolytes by their Superior Cleric, the exam will then be reviewed by the Dicastery for the Clergy. SECTION V - A REMINDER TO THE BISHOPS We would like to emphasize to our diocesan bishops that as shepherds of God’s people, you must put more effort into your responsibilities, you may believe that all is well in your parish, but idle hands become the Deceivers playthings. “So I am the Most High, and in pursuit of My Virtue, I bid my faithful this: You shall not be idle, nor forget your duties in favor of sloth.” (Virtue 4:8) Look to the liturgical calendars for inspiration for mass. Tend to the ill in your territory, individually teach your flock the Holy Scrolls, initiate pious laymen to the deaconship where they may assist and on rare occasions even celebrate sacred ceremonies. What We are attempting to say is for you to take the initiative and administer your diocese more independently. SECTION VI - ASSESSING THE ATLAS OF SAINTS Throughout Our lifetime We have encountered some canonizations which have not been duly recorded in the Church’s records, allowing for Saints who were canonized long ago, to slip through the cracks of time and go unnoticed by the laity. We will endeavour through a commission of clerics and laymen to search for those lost and list them in a new Atlas of Saints, where all canonizations, beatifications etc. will be documented. It will be the third volume of the “Legenda Sanctorum or the Lives of the Saints”, not only the new and re-found Saints will be recorded, but all of them so Canonism may have one singular book to look to, instead of three different ones. SECTION VII - RECOGNIZING SEDAN Having been invited to the city of Joannesport, We met with the Crown Prince Joseph de Joannes and his advisor Lord Calmest. After careful deliberation and dialogue with the Septarchy. The Holy Mother Church does henceforth recognize the sovereignty, independence and agency of the Principality of Sedan. We wish them the very best in the name of the Divine Creator.

  7. THE PONTIFICAL ENTHRONEMENT OF 1886 The votes had been double-checked first by the Vice-Chancellor then again by the Chamberlain. Indeed there was no foul play and the votes were truthful. The Conclave was now over and the Basilica doors were thrown open! Pontifical enthronements had not been a public affair for at least a century, in modern history, they have often been done quickly and quietly. This was different, it would be a splendid public affair where all, faithful and not, would be permitted to watch. As people entered the Basilica they spoke in hushed tones, some uttered prayers and some said nothing, content to sit in silence. Eventually, a contagious hush fell over the gathered and then a procession of the Curia began, at the helm was Chamberlain Katerina, carrying a sturdy ballot box, behind her were the Cardinals Viktor and Armand. The procession seemed to be neverending, they walked and walked until they finally reached the altar where the container was set aside and opened and the ballots were read aloud for all to hear. The Chamberlain spoke such: “Adrian Cardinal Albarosa; Adrian Cardinal Albarosa; Adrian Cardinal Albarosa; Adrian Cardinal Albarosa.” The College of Cardinals had reached a consensus within their conclave. The reaction of the public wasn’t met with much of a reaction, the congregated mostly whispered among themselves. Once more the Chamberlain spoke, reciting the prayer of Penitence; "Almighty and most merciful Creator, we have wandered and strayed from your ways like lost sheep. We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against your holy laws. We have left undone those things that we ought to have done; and we have done those things that we ought not to have done; and there is no health in us. But you, O Lord, have mercy upon us sinners. Spare those who confess their faults. Restore those who are penitent, according to your promises declared to mankind in Horen our Lord. And grant, O most merciful Creator, for his sake, that we may live a disciplined, righteous and godly life, to the glory of your holy name. So say we all." This was merely the beginning, abruptly the Goats of Sedan marched in, and among them in the middle was the Pontiff-Elect, Adrian of Albarosa, clad in a simple white frock. Soon the Goats stepped aside at the pews and the successor continued to the Immaculate Throne at the apse Adrian of Albarosa genuflected before the altar and signed the Lorraine, once on his feet again the Chamberlain continued with the lengthy ceremony. Speaking the many oaths of office required to assume the most Holy Office. “With the Lord Creator our witness and guide, it has been divined that the Adrian of Albarosa, born Adrian de Sarkozy, has been willed to fulfil the seat of the Church Pontificate. Do you heed the call of Our Creator to bear this vocation?” She asked. The Pontiff-Elect, answering “Yes, I do so.” in reply. Cardinal Katerina continued the oaths. This time reading the assent, an ancient part of the ceremony. “You have been ordained in our church, your household names forsaken and your life devoted in sole service to the teachings of our Creator. The vows of your past vocations remain firm; now you must make the declaration of assent. The Church of Faithful is the One, Holy and Rightful Church of the Creator, worshipping the one true God, The Creator. It professes the faith uniquely revealed in the Holy Scrolls and set forth in the Faithful creeds, which faith the Church is called upon to proclaim afresh in each generation. Led by the Holy Light, it has borne witness to Faithful truth in its historic formulates, the Articles of Faith, The Book of Saints. In the declaration you are about to make, will you affirm your loyalty to this inheritance of faith as your inspiration and guidance under God in bringing the grace and truth of Horen to this generation and making Him known to those in your care?” The Cardinal sighed, the lengthy recitals coming to an end. Now Adrian spoke; “I, Adrian of Albarosa, do so affirm, and accordingly declare my belief in the faith which is revealed in the Holy Scrolls and set forth in the Faithful creeds and to which the historic formularies of the Church of The Creator bear witness; and in public prayer and administration of the sacraments, I will use only the forms of service which are authorized or allowed by Canon.” Katerina stepped back, returning to her former position. Taking her place was the Auditor of the Tribunal, Cardinal Armand. He would deliver oaths of his own. He would begin; “Do you accept the Holy Scrolls as revealing all things necessary for eternal salvation through faith?" Promptly Adrian of Albarosa affirmed, “I do so accept them!” Like so it would go back and forth for a few minutes, the Auditor speaking a vow and the Pontiff-Elect confirming; "Will you be diligent in prayer, in reading Holy Scrolls, and in all studies that will deepen your faith and fit you to bear witness to the truth of the Word?" “By the help of God, I will” "Will you lead your people in proclaiming the glorious Word of Horen, so that the good news of salvation may be heard in every place?" “By the help of God, I will” "Will you teach the doctrine of Horen as the Church of Faith has received it, will you refute error, and will you hand on entire the faith that is entrusted to you?" “By the help of God, I will” "Will you be faithful in ordaining and commissioning ministers of the Church?” ”By the help of God, I will” “Will you be gentle and merciful for Horen’s sake to those who are in need, and speak for those who have no other to speak for them?” ”By the help of God, I will” "Will you endeavor to fashion your own life and that of your household according to the way of God and make your home a place of hospitality and welcome?" ”By the help of God, I will” "Will you work with your fellow servants in the Church for the sake of the kingdom of God?" ”By the help of God, I will” "Will you accept the discipline of this Church, exercising authority with justice, courtesy and love, and always holding before you the example of Horen?" ”By the help of God, I will” "Will you then, in the strength of the Holy Light, continually stir up the gift of God that is in you, that the good news of God may be proclaimed in all the Realm?" ”By the help of God, I will” At last the boring pledges were over with, but the last. Armand then spoke; "Speak thus then the oath of the Pontificate, with the conclave and God as witnesses." A moment later Adrian said his oath of the Pontificate, reading from a script held for him to read from; "I vow to change nothing of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof I have found before me guarded by my God-pleasing predecessors, to encroach upon, to alter, or to permit any innovation therein; To the contrary: with glowing affection as her truly faithful student and successor, to safeguard reverently the passed-on good, with my whole strength and utmost effort; To cleanse all that is in contradiction to the canonical order, should such appear; to guard the Holy Canons and Decrees of our Saints and Pontiffs as if they were the divine ordinance of Heaven, because I am conscious of Thee, whose place I take through the Grace of God, whose Vicarship I possess with Thy support, being subject to severest accounting before Thy Divine Tribunal over all that I shall confess; I swear to God Almighty and the Favored son Horen that I will keep whatever has been revealed through Horen and His Successors and whatever the Saints and my predecessors have defined and declared. I will keep without sacrifice to itself the discipline and the rite of the Church. I will put outside the Church whoever dares to go against this oath, may it be somebody else or I. If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful Day of Divine Justice. Accordingly, without exclusion, We subject to severest excommunication anyone -- be it Ourselves or be it another -- who would dare to undertake anything new in contradiction to this constituted Tradition and the purity of the Faith and the Faithful religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would agree with those who undertake such a blasphemous venture." Having said his oath, the Pontiff-Elect kneeled once more to be anointed by the Holy Waters of Gamesh. Performing the sacrament was the Pontifical Secretariat, Cardinal Viktor. With a container of blessed water, he traced a cross on the man’s forehead and spoke “Cleansed of worldly taint, you are reborn in the Creator's vision. Your heart blessed in the eternal compassion and truth of Horen; your soul aflame with the benevolent justice and fervor of Owyn; your body awash with the incredulous miracles and charisma of Godfrey; your mind attuned to the unworldly wisdom and vigor of Siegmund." Then the kneeling Adrian rose and was robed in the Pontifical garments and finally the highlight of the ceremony; the Laurel. Carefully it was retrieved from a red pillow and placed upon the brow of the Pontiff-Elect. "By this you are known to all as preserver of truths and lord spiritual." said Viktor. Having been crowned, the new High Pontiff gingerly sat down on the white throne. Observing in quiet what transpired. “I announce to you a great joy: We have a High Pontiff! The Most Eminent and Most Reverend Lord, Adrian of Albarosa. High Pontiff of the Canonist Faith who takes to himself the name. . .” "PONTIAN THE FOURTH"
  8. We do not know each other and that is why I would like to know my anthem!
  9. THE PONTIFICAL ELECTION OF 1886 THE CARDINAL CONCLAVE OF TYLOS III The time had come. The Holy Father, Tylos III had been laid to rest beneath the ground and now the College of Cardinals found themselves once more locked within the Basilica of Saint Heinrik. There by the altar, an immaculate box sat with slits on its top allowing for the gathered cardinals to insert their votes. There were four gathered clerics of various nationalities and backgrounds. They sat across from each other, each with a blank white paper, ink and a quill. The four clerics were Viktor Cardinal Nescia, Katerina Cardinal Jorenus, Armand Cardinal Allobrogum and Adrian Cardinal Albarosa. The Vice-Chancellor Adrian rose and moved towards the ballot box and spoke a prayer to the College, “Heavenly Creator, walk with us as our mediator and judge to endow us with a sound mind and contrite heart in the election of the next Pontiff. Grant, we pray, that by your infinite wisdom and omnipotence that whomever is chosen shall reflect your mercy, compassion, strength, and duty in the exercising of this great Holy Office. This we ask in prayer, in the name of all Aenguls, all saints, and of the universal church, Amen.” The Vice-Chancellor then traced the Lorraine cross, signalling for the voting to begin. No more than an hour had passed and all four cardinals had placed their votes. It was then that the Vice-Chancellor rose once more and opened the ballot box and counted the votes. He returned the slips back into the box and closed it, beckoning the College to come forth and see for themselves the results of the election. They all knew who the successor was and what was now necessary for them to do. The successor of the Church would need to be enthroned the next Saint’s Day in the Basilica of Saint Heinrik.
  10. SEDE VACANTE PUBLISHED BY THE PONTIFICAL CHANCERY On the 13th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1886 | 11th of Vzmey and Hyff 439 E.S. It is with the utmost sorrow that the Mother Church announces the passing of His Holiness, Tylos III. On this very day, the Holy Father ordered the bells of Saint Heinrik to chime for mass. It was in the middle of his sermon that the High Pontiff abruptly died. Enthroned in the year 1876 and passing in 1886, His Holiness reigned for ten good years. THUS, With the passing of the Holy Father, the Church of the Canon hereby enters the position of “Sede Vacante”, otherwise named “The Seat Being Vacant”. We pray to God, all the Exalted and the Saints, that He will grant wisdom to our College of Cardinals to choose a successor that is pleasing to Him. We pray that our new Pontiff be protected from the evils of sin, from greed and gluttony, from pride and selfishness. Rather, may he be a benevolent shepherd to the Canonist flock, guiding all the faithful through the troubles of our world, remaining obedient to God, serving as a light for those stuck in darkness. A funeral shall be held for His Holiness in one Saint’s Day. More information is to be released by Cardinal Katerina. Conclave will be held in two Saint’s Days, following the funeral. Where all Cardinals are summoned to elect the new High Pontiff of the Church. ON BEHALF OF THE CHURCH OF CANON In Domini Nomen Oramus, Adrian Cardinal Albarosa
  11. The Vice-Chancellor stared at the Holy Father's pale corpse. It was a strange sensation, to see someone you knew in life, laying without a soul before you. The Cardinal did not pray, in fact he didn't think too much about it. He trusted the machinations of God and that Tylos III was now in the Seven, in paradise. "What do we do now?" came a voice behind him, it was Katerina. She had summoned him to the the Basilica. Adrian regained his consciousness and spoke to his sister-Cardinal "We will declare sede vacante and prepare for the funeral" Having said this the cardinal-red priest marched away to write the declaration.
  12. WRIT OF DISSOLUTION: OF THE SACRAMENT OF MATRIMONY PUBLISHED BY THE PONTIFICAL CHANCERY Peace and Blessings, The College of Cardinals write with sorrow to institute the dismantling of a union which has lasted many years. Marriage remains one of humanity’s most holy of sacraments, inspired by the example of the Exalted Horen and Saint Julia. Yet after a close discussion with Lord Dietrich, the College of Cardinals understand why it cannot continue, the marriage will not now, not ever be fruitful for the two. Their relations are cold and no children have been born from the marriage. Therefore, we hereby with the imprimatur of the High Pontiff declare the union of Dietrich Barclay and Odessa MacPherson dissolved on the grounds of marital abandonment. With the union dissolved they are permitted by the Holy Office to remarry, but we implore both to take more caution in seeking matrimony going forward and demand that both seek the Church’s permit for future unions.
  13. ORDINARY CONSISTORY TRANSCRIPT PUBLISHED BY THE PONTIFICAL CHANCERY 16th of Horen’s Calling, 1884 | 14th of Wzuvar and Byvca 437 E.S. The College of Cardinals did on the 20th of Tobias’ Bounty, 1883, convene to discuss the matter that were brought before the College, a briefing is found below: Lector Trevor unveiled the concealed history of St. Lorethos of Rhen, which shocked the Curia and compels the body to reassess the validity of the deceased’s canonization. Furthermore, a replacement for St. Lorethos of Rhen was proposed; Avenel Synalli. An Elven in the service to the Orenian Empire in the late 16th to 17th century. In addition to this the Acolyte Cyrus of Rudr brought up the removal of Lorethos would also mean the removal of a Patron Saint of the Rhenyari and urged the Curia to find a replacement for both magick and Rhenyari. The Secretariat awaits the documents from the Lectorate, where the beatification process may begin. Secondly, Lector Trevor gave the Aegisian Curia a report of vampire sightings in Grodno. The former Ser August was suspected of being one himself after avoiding testing by the Lectorate. August will be summoned to submit to testing where his status may be confirmed. At last, a Mister Ruadh Mor came before the Curia to discuss the succession of the Daeland title; how it may best be kept out of pagan hands. Nothing was decided or voted upon by the Curia. The Curia consulted with Mister Ruadh Mor and he left with something to consider. This session was scribed by Acolyte Cyrus of Rudr, attached below is the transcript. Any laity wishing to bring forth issues to the College of Cardinals may pen a letter to the office of the Secretariat.
