SEC. IV. THE ABBEY OF THE FLAMING COVENANT
Within the City-State of Luciensburg lies the Abbey of the Flaming Covenant. Modeled after the Rule of Saint Humbert and the Abbey-Seminary of Saint Robert, the abbey today places a specific emphasis on the Owynist Rite. The pride of the abbey is the vast collection of religious and historical texts, which continues to grow.

SEC. V. DEVASTATION OF LUCIENSBURG
A statement from the Office of the Prince-Archbishop of Albarosa, written by the hand of Pelagius Cardinal Philippus:
Roughly four months prior to the publishing of this Minor Bull as commissioned by his Eminence, Cardinal St. Alexander - the pious Princely Archdiocese’s capital, Luciensburg - was razed to the ground by hordes of vicious ratmen, a demonic fiend lingering in the murky under cities and sewers beneath Luciensburg’s streetways. With ratmen attacks becoming ever so more a common occurrence, the parels escalated in the weeks leading up to the devastation of Luciensburg.
Forward to the townsfolk and soldiery of Luciensburg gathering about within the Temple of Saint Lucien and Blessed Renault - Clerics garbed in red blessing the citizenry before the flames of St. Owyn. The masses rallied in preparation for a battle, for the ratmen had recently besieged the Arx Rubra, it was then the right time to subdue what was rightfully theirs to the Luciensburg flock. The skirmishes persisted for three waves, with one of them even getting reinforcements from Yong-Ping and fellow Canonist allies.
Although the piety and flaming passion brought by the Luciensburgers during the conflict, with several casualties and martyrs taken by multiple parties - it was only in vain, for the high stronghold was faced with poison gas spread throughout the city, and eventually razed to ashes by the ratmen themselves - leaving the Luciensburgers to evacuate the city. To this day Luciensburg is still occupied by the ratmen - we pray for the lost martyrs slaughtered in the ratmen engagements, fighting to their last breath in valour beneath the fear of God. St. Lucien, pray for us.
SIGNED BY HIS EMINENCE,
Ferdinand Cardinal St. Alexander
