  1. -=- Da Kirkja Dverga eron da Dwedmar-=- -The Holy Order of the Dwarves- Da Kirkja Dverga is a crucial cultural institution within dwarven society, being recognized as the highest religious authority on the Brathmordakin, the faith system of the dwarves. The main principle at the center of da Kirkja Dverga is that the divine inspiration and blessings of the Brathmordakin are not just for priests, but for all dwarves. Because of this, the various orders of da Kirkja Dverga are integrated in various ways in dwarven society. In order to better reflect this mission, the Organization and Operation of da Kirkja Dverga has changed under the Clerical Reforms of 1750. -Organization- The organization and hierarchy of da Kirkja Dverga is based around one master hierarchy that is based off of overall religious knowledge and capability, and several sub-orders that are in charge of certain duties and rituals. Clergydwed can choose to join as many orders as they, helping honor the specific patron that order is dedicated to and spread spirituality in dwarven society. The sub-orders may have their own hierarchy in relation to their specific duties, but the master hierarchy for general religious wisdom takes priority in all means outside of a sub-order. High Preceptor The High Preceptor is the foremost teaching authority on the Brathmordakin, meant to represent and consider the interests of each and every patron, helping in leading the sub-orders to successfully honoring their patron. The High Preceptor must lead da Kirkja Dverga in a way that ensures the education of dwarves about their culture and brings spirituality into society. The High Preceptor has ultimate decision on matters of faith and clergy, but can be vetoed or removed by the Preceptors with a 66% majority. Current High Preceptor: Norli Starbreaker ((A_New_Noob)) Preceptor A Preceptor is someone who is not only extremely knowledgeable on the Brathmordakin and wise but also a leader of a successful and honorable order. Preceptors are able to give exams to Initiates to make them Clerics as well as make someone an Initiate of the clergy. Preceptors have the ability to decide the position of High Preceptor with a 75% majority, meaning removal or appointment of the rank. Preceptors who are removed by the High Preceptor may vote with other Preceptors to remove the High Preceptor even after removal for a stone week if the Preceptors did not vote over removal. Current Preceptors: Kazrin Starbreaker ((DrHope)) Priest Should a Cleric prove to be very knowledgeable on the Brathmordakin and have experience assisting Priests and or Preceptors in rituals and ceremonies, they may be made a Priest. A Priest is considered knowledgeable enough to lead rituals and ceremonies, as well as being able to lead an order of da Kirkja Dverga. A Priest has an obligation to do work within da Kirkja Dverga and its orders, as well as perform rituals or he may be demoted to Cleric. Current Priests: Dugmir Irongut ((HolyBejebus)) Baldin Ironside ((mateolog)) Thorin Treebeard ((SoulReapingWolf)) Dwarger Silvervein ((LionEY_)) Cleric This is the standard rank of da Kirkja Dverga. A Cleric is someone who has been educated on the Brathmordakin and has passed the Clerical-Exam of da Kirkja Dverga, and are allowed to join as many orders as they wish. Clerics who wish to advance their religious knowledge and experience may help Priests with rituals and ceremonies. Clerics however do not have to help in public rituals, and may participate in private duties of their orders only if they wish. The only requirement of a Cleric is that should they encounter one who wishes to learn the faith, the Cleric must educate. Current Clerics: Dworic Starbreaker ((Dwarf_of_Norgeth)) Falk Irongut ((TheFirstShroom)) Gimgrimmor ((0MN15514H)) Dhaen Grandaxe ((Dhaelena)) Morag Goldhand ((A_New_Noob)) Initiate This is the lowest rank of da Kirkja Dverga, and has very little religious authority. One is not meant to stay as Initiate for long, for it is only a rank for those sworn into da Kirkja Dverga but have not passed the Clerical-Exam. Initiates cannot join any orders or perform rituals and blessings, but they may attend clergy meetings. Current Initiates: Howler Silvervein ((ImWolfie)) Hurdog Ironside ((ItzDragon)) Atandt Irongrinder ((Urguan)) Assil Irongrinder ((zzmarcc)) Azkel Frostbeard ((Treatycole)) Mika Goldhand* ((mika1278)) -Application- [RP] Name: Race: Clan (if applicable): Reason for Joining: [OOC] MC Username: Discord: -= Narvak oz Brathmordakin =- -= Narvak oz da Kirkja Dverga =-

  3. RP Name:: Norli Starbreaker MC Username: A_New_Noob Discord: Noobert#4534 What Nation Are You Affliated With?: Urguan Why Do You Wish To Come?: To see the lands of his ancestors, to learn the religious traditions of old clergies, and to find inspiration for writing songs and poems. What Skills Can You Bring?: Norli has had experience fighting in the past, and has a good understanding of history, including Athera. But most useful is neither of these, but instead Norli’s famous musical talent! Having made countless songs and ballads, Norli will surely be able to give inspiration through his music to those with him on the voyage, and will make great songs and tales of the actions taken by the descendants in Athera.
  4. Norli reads the letter, his tired eyes pained from a long week. He sets it aside, and cracks his knuckles, “Time fer me own letter I reckon, clergy’s been a tad too quiet recently.” He stands from his chair, yawning as he does so, and looks out the window, murmuring a prayer of gratitude to the Brathmordakin for giving the clergy Baldin’s assistance.

  7. [!] Nailed to the bulletin board of Kal’Evraal, plainly now for everyone to see in contrast to the first letter, is a response from Morag Goldhand. It reads as follow. [!] -=- In Response to a Hypocrite -=- I am Morag Goldhand, son of Marguan Goldhand son of Pinki Goldhand son of Finki Goldhand son of Alfados Goldhand who is of course a direct descendent of Tungdil Goldhand. Armakak praising, dwarven goods trading GOLDHAND blood runs through my veins. To my very core I am a Goldhand. However, two stone days ago I had written a letter I had been reluctantly planning for some time. It was posted one every Clan possession of the Aurokanar Kazamar. It was a rejection of the leadership of Hekkaes Anvilaxe as Clan Father of the Goldhands. In it I outlined and layed out the reasons I have distaste in his leadership, and explained what I would do moving forward. I said, and I maintain this now, that I would keep the name Goldhand for it is my name, although I would not work with Hekkaes under any circumstances, since he had pushed me away from the clan. I made a reasonable argument, and kept it as much as I could between my clansmen and Hekkaes. He responded like a child, tearing down all the letters I had posted and hiding it from our clan, controlling the information. He then proceeded to make his own letter condemning me, one that was public and spread across the Under-Realm. He manipulated the information available to our kinsmen to control the story, accusing me of lies, and hiding my actual letter to stop people from checking his accusations. I suspected he may try to control the narrative of the story, but to this extent? Hiding my responses, tearing down flyers, and grudging me under false grounds? Hekkaes Anvilaxe, ye Hypocrite, who would call me liar and slanderer and deceive your supposed own clan. In my letter I assert that Hekkaes is power-hungry, and only returned to Ulrah when he knew he was being given leadership of Clan Goldhand. He denies this, then continues to repeat what I said. His only defense was that Thoak offered him the leadership... which I never asserted was false. Yet by taking away my letter he controlled the spread of information, and set me up to be a liar when I said no such things. I had also asserted that he broke an oath by leaving the Goldhand clan to make his own Clan, Anvilaxe. This is also true, which he confirms, yet he backs it up by saying he beat Morug oz Brathmordakin in a duel, so it is void. It is true, by the nature of the grudge filed, that the grudge was voided. But that does not change the fact that he had left the clan, and only rejoined when given leadership. It was a fair deal, yes, but that does not stop the truth of the matter that Hekkaes only came back for his personal gain. He also claims that I lied about the death of Dargur Goldhand. This is also absurd, being how it is an indisputable fact he had killed Dargur. Yes it was done in an honor-duel, but such an honor-duel should never had happened, since there was a sentence that Dargur was expected to serve to redeem himself. Instead, by rushing an honor-duel, Hekkaes only insured that his clan member would die a slaver. I have thought much on that occurrence, questioning why Dargur had agreed to honor-duel, and have come to the conclusion that in guilt, Dargur had wished to escape from the world. He knew what he did was wrong, and deeply regretted breaking such a basic rule of our faith in the Brathmordakin. In this case, he should have been put on a suicide watch and helped to redeem himself. Instead, Hekkaes pushed him to die. I suspect this was to make sure that the clan’s public image, and by extension Hekkaes’ money making ability, was not impeded. Now as much as we are a clan of merchants, we should not forsake our kinsmen who are in need and debt, and let any wrongs of theirs go unresolved just to save ourselves of the hassle. I do not consider you worthy of the punishment a kinslayer should face, but by no means do I consider your decision making competent and with the Clan’s best intentions in mind. Lastly, the grudge placed against me. I believe the grudge should be considered void since I broke no oath. The oath dictates to say loyalty to the clan, and I have remained loyal by not leaving, to show respect to clan elders and fathers, and to not get greedy and trick other dwarves, especially goldhands. One may argue that I broke the promise that I am to respect the clan’s elders and father by making my letter, but I would respond by saying Hekkaes forcing me not to work with a certain organization over his own personal squabble and demanding I only work independent or with the clan broke the oath first, because he is acting greedy and manipulative with me. No Goldhand should have his praise of Armakak and trade business should be impeded. I have not spread lies, for everything I said was true and confirmed by yourself in your rebuttal. Therefore by the reasons I have outlined here, I find your grudge void. But I do wish to resolve this problem, and I have such faith in the veracity of my position I will fight for it. Despite your grudge being nonsensical and filled with misconceptions out of a desire to end this conflict, I will fight for my honor and accept the duel. I know that you would dedicate your entire being to ruining my life if I do not respond, so you force my hand. I apologize to my Clan if they are being dragged into this conflict, and implore you, Hekkaes Anvilaxe, to not force our kin to take a side. I will meet you under the watch of a Remembrancer as a Judge of our fight to make honorable this conflict, and will fight with weapon and armor to defend myself in this honor duel you launch against me. May our ancestors smile upon the honorable and Dungrimm guide the righteous weapon. Narvak oz Armakak Narvak oz da Aurokanar Kazamar Signed Morag Goldhand -=-
  8. [!] Morag notices Hekkaes take down the flyer, and as well the cave dwarf put them back up. He rushes to stop the cave dwarf, telling him there was no need to get into Goldhand business, although the gesture was appreciated. Morag now looks back at the door of the Clan Hall, disgruntled and angry. He takes the copy that the cave dwarf had put up and brings it with him, annoyed that his message is being censored from other Goldhands. Exactly what he feared would happen, Hekkaes manipulating information to the dwarves, was happening.
  9. Nailed to the door of the Goldhand Fort in Sutica, the door of the Goldhand Clan Hall in Kal’Evraal, and the door of Goldhand Manor in Kal’Evraal is the following letter. There is no copy on the Bulletin Board of Kal’Evraal, although it is not impossible that a passerby of any of the listed locations may view it. It is a sad state of affairs when a dwed feels they are being pushed to leave their Clan Father, but tis the state I find myself in. I am Morag Goldhand, son of Marguan Goldhand son of Pinki Goldhand son of Finki Goldhand son of Alfados Goldhand, who is grandson to Tungdil Goldhand. My blood runs with pride and passion for trade and for the Merchant Father Armakak, and my ancestors' blood before me. The Clan is currently led by Hekkaes. And although I wish no ill to Hekkaes, for I still consider him a friend even if he wouldn't consider me one, he has pushed me away from his leadership. In the past he has slurred the race of the clan's ancestors. Even farther in the past he has abandoned the clan, as anybody who looks at the Grudgebook would know. I have been tempted for a while to voice openly my distaste with Hekkaes' leadership of the clan, but decided not to out of a desire to keep the clan united and strong. But that changed recently, for Hekkaes pushed me over the edge. He now has placed regulations and rules on who we may and may not trade with, banning me from joing a guild designed to praise and honor Armakak over a petty squabble he has with a weakly associated organization to it. Hekkaes, the once deserter of the Clan, has threatened to expel me, who's ancestors have lived for this clan and the will of Armakak since Tungdil himself, over a personal squabble he has with a guild not even associated with Armakak's Coin. But this disagreement is not about my joining of the guild, it is that he would threaten to expel someone over something so small, so mundane. It speaks volumes of his nature, and reveals him for the master of deception he is, not the facade of an honorable and hard-working merchant he puts on for the world. He has used the Clan to grow his own coffers and push his own personal views since his leadership began, as is evident by a brief analysis of his actions as leader. He left the Clan in the first place, breaking an oath, for his own benefit. He rejoined it only when he knew he’d become leader of the Clan. He killed Dargur Goldhand, a convicted slaver, so to save face for himself and the clan, rather than try improve Dargur to become a more honorable dwed. He has slurred the race of the ancestors of the Clan to further his political agenda and align himself closer with other mountain dwed clans, rather than contribute anything meaningful to them. He has insisted that all business a Goldhand does goes either to themself or the Goldhand Clan, which is of course managed by him, only deepening his own coffers. I will not be threatened by a trickster, I will not let my praise of Armakak be stopped by anyone, let alone the very people who should encourage it. May I make it clear, I have no ill will to any Goldhand, they are my kinsmen. But I will not recognize the authority and legitimacy of a Clan Father who has left the clan, killed members of our clan, slurred our ancestors and inhibits the praise of Armakak. Therefore I reject the status of Hekkaes as Clan Father of the Goldhands, but I do not claim it. I've not the wisdom nor experience to claim it. Instead I shall conduct my praise to Armakak and business on my own with my family. I do not ask of the rest of the Clan to take a side, in fact I encourage them not to. I love you, for you are my Clan, regardless what Hekkaes may say. I say to you my fellow Goldhands to stay with Hekkaes if he does not impede your worship of Armakak. This conflict is not between me and the Goldhands, simply me and Hekkaes. The only reason I go public is because I know the nature of Hekkaes, and know he will do everything in his power to warp this against me. Hekkaes Anvilaxe, I know that you read this. You may to attempt to expel me from my name, but I simply do not care what you say. I am a Goldhand through and through even if you dare deny it, and I will love my Clan and Armakak even if you deny it. Narvak oz Armakak Narvak oz da Aurokanar Kazamar Signed Morag Goldhand
  10. High Preceptor Norli Starbreaker makes his way to the most carefully watched chamber within Urguan, where both Remembrancers and their guards vigilantly stalk that most sacred book in Dwarfdom, the Dwarven Book of Grudges. Following him are the two Preceptors, who had both given their approval on what was to be done. He approaches the book, and carefully grabs the quill pen, looking once more to Preceptor Baldin, his second in command, Herald of Yemekar, and then to his mentor and friend, Preceptor Thorin Treebeard, as if to give one last chance to discuss. A brief moment passes, but no words are said. The leader of Da Kirkja Dverga turns his head back to that most hallowed book, and puts down the pen to the paper to make known the sins of the Onyx Sanctum and its leadership. [ THE WRONGED ] THE BRATHMORDAKIN [ THE ASSAILANT ] Dark Elves of the Onyx Sanctum. Dak’ir Des’Nox and Daichia Jusmia. [ THE WRONG ] Desecration of Dwarven Ruins. Release of Monsters in Dwarven Lands. Refusal to negotiate or discuss with Dwarven Leaders. Mockery of the Brathmordakin by worshipping false gods in Dwarven Lands. [ TERMS OF SETTLEMENT ] Capture of Dak’ir Des’Nox and Daichia Jusmia to be tried before the the Court of Urguan or da Kirkja Dverga. Tribute offered to the Brathmordakin and submission to the true gods of the Under-Realm. High Preceptor Norli Starbreaker put the pen down, and turned to the Preceptors. Again, nothing was said, and a mutual understanding was held between the three. But there was not time to dwell on the situation, much work was to be done, and the three made their way out of the hall of that most sacred book, and towards the tavern. Norli led the clergy-leaders into a private room where he wrote down a public statement from the Preceptor-Council to be pinned to every bulletin board in dwarven lands and further. “As both the ever vigilant and the dull have both heard, not long ago a group of dark elves took to creating a home for themselves within the cavern networks of the Dwarven Under-Realm. Urguan had sent a diplomat to discuss the relationship of the dwedmar and the people of the Onyx Sanctum, for that is what this forsaken hold the dark elves inhabit is known by, for of course it is the righteous duty of the dwedmar to ensure that the lands of our ancestors and dead kinsmen is not inhabited by dishonorable folk. Since then, the people of the Onyx Sanctum have desecrated dwarven ruins and burial grounds, released monsters into our caverns, and arguably the most heinous crime, worshipped false gods in the lands of the true gods of the Brathmordakin. Both Clan Starbreaker and Clan Irongrinder already have made grudges against the sinful perpetrators of these crimes, as well as a continuation of the infamous Holy War of the Cha Cha Slide against evil led by the Legion of Mercy, which da Kirkja Dverga shall give its full support and deem legitimate. As the protector and main body in charge of dwed culture, da Kirkja Dverga, is taking even further action to bring honor back to the lands that have been tainted where once the Onyx Sanctum stood, who’s people now flee rather than diplomacy or face consequences for their crimes. The Dwarven ruins and burial grounds that the dark elves had desecrated will be refurbished and our ancestor’s land honored. The monsters that the dark elves had let loose upon the caverns will be hunted down and purged. Any heresies or false beliefs found in the lands of the dwarves will be eradicated. Those who brought forth such chaos in our lands will be tried in court of Urguan law or by Preceptor Council. These promises we make to the Brathmordakin, and as They as our witness shall we make honorable the lands made sinful by the Onyx Sanctum.
