  1. The Pontifical Enthronement of 1745 8th of Godfrey’s Triumph, 1745. [!] When the sun had moved past the horizon to break into morning, a procession of beadles and priests was carried to the Basilica of the Final Revelation. The chirping of birds which saturated the cool morning air of Helena briefly paused as bells soon began to toll throughout the city. As many outside were alerted of a change by the tolling of the bells, the great doors of the Basilica of the Final Revelation were cast open for all to see. The procession soon moved into the sanctuary, with Jasper Cardinal Renzfeld aside the altar. Standing aside the Pontiff-Elect, Cardinal Renzfeld begins the Prayer of Penitence. He calls out, "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." . It is now that Ide Cardinal Ves faces the amassed clergy, himself bearing an immaculate white frock as per the custom of Pontiffs of centuries past. The Cardinal Renzfeld continued; “With the Lord Creator our witness and guide, it has been divined that the Cardinal Ide of Ves, born Eidr al-Haraqqa, has been willed to fulfill the seat of the Church Pontificate. Do you heed the call of Our Creator to bear this vocation? “I do so believe.” “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 cardinal then reads the Assent, preserved from years past. “The Church of Faithful is the One, Holy and Rightful Church of the Creator , worshiping 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?” “I, Ide of Ves, 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.” replies Ide. Do you accept the Holy Scrolls as revealing all things necessary for eternal salvation through faith? "I do so accept them." "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."" "Speak thus then the oath of the Pontificate, with the conclave and God as witness." "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." As his oath come to close, Jasper washes the face of Ide and anoints his forehead with scented oils. "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 Sigismund." Cardinal Renzfeld then garbs the anointed in the pontifical cloth, and bestows the pontifical ferula. "By this you are known to all as preserver of truths and lord spiritual." Cardinal Renzfeld then retrieves the ring of St. Lucien, before sliding it upon the right ring finger of the anointed, and afterward, takes the pontifical mitre and rests it upon his brow. "I announce to you a great joy: We have a High Pontiff! The Most Eminent and Most Reverend Lord, Ide of Ves. High Pontiff of the Canonist Faith who takes to himself the name PONTIAN III."
  2. Ide Cardinal Ves slowly rises from his seat, uttering a prayer under his breath. His hands are plagued by shaking, the man himself unsure if it were nerves or something rheumatic. With a brief steeling of himself and a nod to his colleagues of faith, he deposits his ballot.
  3. I’m all for self-policing but I think it’s something that’s very hard to enforce suddenly on the server due to there being an intrinsic ideological divide between the player-base; there are those that are comfortable with self-policing because they believe that issues will (or can, at least) be resolved at a later date and those that are not comfortable with self-policing behaviour because they’ve got a distrust in the conduct of themselves and their peers. If there is perceivable room for abuse, I don’t blame people for seeing that as a detractor. I think now is the time to hopefully have some show of force of the mod team and some subsequent competency wherein these results are a demonstrable improvement to the previous system. There are elements that people should see as a perceivable immediate benefit – no RP stalling during flubbed bandit roleplay by somebody who doesn’t want to face consequences, less of an out-of-character interference with in-character affairs, etc etc. However; until this is a demonstrated and empirical difference and improvement to the previous system, it’s relatively understandable that people’re going to be sage and cynical to such a drastic reform. Reforms have flopped before, and the risk with having ones that are both substantial and affecting the more middling minutiae of roleplay conflict is that the risks are far more palpable. It’s something that needs some duality of belief in the system (or at least some pretence of it ) to reap some pretty sweeping benefits to the server. But the space for the ball to drop is far too wide, which is something that many of the people detracting the change are far more cognizant of. It’s a sink or swim policy.
  4. Ide Cardinal Ves hears of the death of his friend of decades, confident in his knowledge that the heretics wouldn’t learn nor repent, that the children playing templar would continue to damn themselves ever further with every toy they throw from their crib. He puts down his bowl of dates, his stomach turned knowing that these were children so lost.
  5. Veikko H takes a few moments respite to begin to ink a letter to the emperor, thanking him for putting the names of different nations in different colours. The lingering cold causes him to run his inkwell over a candle for a few slow moments before he seals the letter with a wax seal.

  8. Ide Cardinal Ves whiles the day in his lodge, eyes occasionally casting the slowest of circumspect glares to the vineyard that had grown the basketful of grapes resting aside his chair. The tips of his fingers dulled with the dried purples juices that only a day-long gorging on grapes could provide, he traces the words of the page with some careful zealousness. His old eyes finally opening wide with some finality, he re-rolls the missive and tucks it into the top-drawer of his bureau.
  9. AN ECCLESIASTICAL ULTIMATUM As promulgated by His Eminence, Ide Cardinal Ves, Auditor of the Tribunal of the Church of the Canon Decreed the 5th of Harren’s Folly, 1743. ☨ To Daniel de Alence and his Nominal Templars of Arjen’s Cross There is something minor to be praised in the pious forming a nation of their own, and I praise your zeal. It is clearly known what Canon philosophy, certainly in agreement with natural reason, prescribes in this matter; for the flock to stand together against any threats to the faith, and to stand as one. Nevertheless, because of both warnings issued to your men and your conscious foregoing of them, it will be expedient to briefly issue an ultimatum. Clearly, divine law, both that which is known by the light of reason and that which is revealed in the sacred scrolls, strictly forbids anyone, to either form an order professing to be Holy in nature without gaining the divine promulgated assent of the Pontiff. Further, it is forbidden for anyone to so purposefully kill or wound another Canonist man unless compelled to do so in self defense. In the very nature of drawing arms against another Canonist nation - whose ruler has in years past been fidei defensor of the Mother Church - there is plainly blind temerity and contempt for the life of fellow men of the Canon. There can be, therefore, no obscurity or doubt in anyone's mind that those who engage in battle as ‘templars of the faith’ and take upon themselves a double guilt, that of another Canonist's destruction and the deliberate risk of their own lives in their self-proclaimed cause as “templars” of the Mother Church. If as to recant their claim of templars of the faith and profess to be schismatics or heretics, the following ultimatum will reply without regard; It will be your duty to impress diligently upon the minds of your people this warning, that they not rashly follow false organisations of faith, nor allow themselves to be carried away by the judgments of shallow men to be thus dragged into war against their own Canonist brethren in their faux-nation of heretical pretenders of faith. If there is no reform of behaviour, resting upon the authority of Him whose pleasure it was to place us (though unequal to such a burden) upon this supreme justice-seat, we do shall of the fullness of our apostolic power declare the aforesaid Templars, the man known as Daniel de Alence, and all other titles non exhaustive that he so self-refers to be a heretic and favourer of heretics, and him and his adherents in the matters aforesaid to have incurred the sentence of excommunication and to be cut off from the unity of the Mother Church. We humble pray GOD that he strengthen our common efforts with divine grace and that He kindly guide you into accepting our ultimatum and returning to the safety of His fold, for the integrity of morals and for Canon life.
