  2. Progressing the Ministry From layman to clergyman A guide to advancing to Priesthood Composed by Godwin Cardinal Kaedrin Prelate of the Priesthood Shepherds of Man through times of quietude and turbulence; providers of instruction and explanation of life’s tumultuousness. These are the Priests of the Canon church, the true faith of Mankind and its ancillary cousins. The sole body instilled by the will of God to guide the misguided, educate the uneducated, and clarify to the confused, the will of the Lord, the way of life, and the means by which to navigate the topsy-turvy of life (Gospels 5:2). It is as well Man alone who shall be entrusted with the wisdom to act a herdsman, compassionate and righteous, to conduct sermon and analysis, to be a trusted giver of local judgement, and to act a respectful neighbour. However, the journey from layman or intrigued bloke to erudite priest or cultivated bishop is not facile, and demands a level of attention befitting a post of such rigour. I. Acolyteship. The first and doubtlessly simplest step, compelled by will and designed around education, clear explanation, and hands-on experiences. It is either structured, or unstructured, and shall be timeless, free from the constraints of overburdened scheduling, and catered to the needs of the disciple. Whether under a teacher with a sole student, or in attendance of a seminary, monastery, or other organized and recognized institute. To progress from any man to an Acolyte of one’s respective local cathedral, it takes but a letter of intent, sent in or given in person, to any clerk or member of the Canon ministry. Alternatively, a letter can be sent to the Prelate of the Priesthood, that curate whose responsibility it is to tend to the well-being of the clergy. II. Thesis. The second and doubtlessly delightful, thought-provoking step, compelled by the will of one’s teacher to explore a religious topic of interest. It should not be especially demanding, nor agonizing (either alone or as a product of the aforesaid), but rather should be an assay of one’s scholarly skillset, their aptitude for putting words to paper, and their comprehension of the values of the Canon faith. Although discouraged, help can be sought out, and should start with one’s teacher. The thesis is a very unescorted challenge, and is designed to prompt one prospective priest to think for themselves of that which they shall be proselytizing. III. Ordination. The third and final step of the first leg of one’s ministerial journey, and the point at which this simple guide shall cease its explanation. Like a graduation, ordination is the practiced rite of assent, the step from any man to one clergyman, and an affirmation of the knowledge to progress, conducted by one’s teacher, or another of pertinent rank. Once ordained, one is no longer known as an Acolyte, and casts off all ties to their surname, taking the title of Father, and remaining ever stalwart to the time-tested oaths of the ministry: poverty, chastity, celibacy, obedience. From this point forward it is one’s flock they care for, all men indubitably, but foremost those who lie under one’s wing, for they are those so close as to be afforded, justly, immediate care and attention. To start the roleplay process of joining the Canon Priesthood, seek out a member of the clergy in-game, or make an IRP response to this post!

  5. “Oh, Ide.” Godwin said with a curt nod in approval of the choice, in addition to a general demeanor which sought to suggest, to those in his company at Varoche’s gardens, approval of this release and his eagerness to move forward down the clerical path he’s been walking.
  6. Thesis; The Union of Pious Man and Stately Man Written by Godwin Myre, Acolyte of St. Adrian’s Cathedral It is the most inherent binding element in man, which draws us together across culture, language, and vocation, surpassing the reaching devil of degradation, confusion, and protocol, which seeks to disrupt and send us twirling down in a wave of debauchery and distraction lest realized and denied. This binding agent is G-D, the great Lord under whom we all faithfully live or serve, and whose creed we adhere staunchly to, for its lessons and explanations surpass change over time, and hold true throughout the ages, applicable through their generality to a myriad of circumstances. It is the forgotten union of life outside of Church, and life within, that threatens to guide awry, and send one, as aforementioned, twirling down in a wave of debauchery and distraction. To forget the lessons heard and read, or spoken aloud, within that sanctified chamber, is to neglect the applicability of that which one rightfully takes the time to practice and thereby retain. And through this neglect does the indolence and later ignorance spread like a wildfire, attaching itself to the waning edges of the local culture, screaming aloud heresy and foolery that aims to tear down the comfortable walls of civilized society. Is it not too a bit under-stairs for a gentleman of the present age to allow themselves to be degraded like so? Or is it perhaps that you, or your colleague, that individual within your line of sight, or knowledge, does not consider the separation of the union to be inherently bad? Is it a failure to realize, or accept, the true seeking evil in the separation, or is it a refusal and acceptance of the movement as being “with the times”, or a product thereof, and thereby natural and right? It is not natural and therefore right, it is natural but not good, and therefore not right. It is the element of evil that separates the two, and divides the union, as to degrade the society in which we live as to begin the steps of the elimination of the necessity of faith in life and work. It is that, the latter half of the end there, the connection of faith to work that elevates a Man above his competition, and permits him to produce product far superior to that of one awash with faithlessness or corruption through debaucherous practices might create. Through faith one finds clarity in mind and body, and becomes encompassed in a warmth largely indescribable save to attempt to say that it is like pure contentment and self-assuredness manifesting across one’s whole form. It is the removal of the vices, of which I dare to presume wrath is the largest combatted, which provides a rich field for reaping, whose virtuous product will then prove to sell for far more than might otherwise have been achieved. To forget this union of faith and work is to forget one’s capacity to succeed above a resting state.

  8. Arun’Asna; Mother of Shades ORIGIN/BACKSTORY From the darkness, birthed in the time of the land of Aegis, was born the Chained Mother, Aknu’gul, of the chief purveyor of chaos and destruction, the Archdaemon Iblees. It was his initial will that brought about a curse most horrific to befall one of his great lieutenants, the ‘aheral Rilath Ilwindor, the first Shade. At the time of receiving of Shade, the power that permitted his new state to thrive funneled from the Arch-Daemon, passing once through the filter of the Chained Mother, before reaching the heart of the Prime of Rancour, the first Parasite, which bent utterly to the will of Rilath, who never discovered the true nature of his ‘curse.’ Aknu’gul, in this earliest of eras, lay trapped within the first Shade Gem, the initial creation of the Arch-Daemon which permitted his power to funnel in and distribute itself appropriately to the various and growing number of Shades. For without this funnel, and all those thereafter, the power would be all too direct, lacking in organization and direction, and would fail in its purpose of growing the various Parasites. This power, transferred through the aforementioned first Shade Gem, which silently housed Aknu’gul, was an ever flowing current that gave a supernatural and original energy to the swirling chaos of the inner gem. It was from this tumultuousness that the first sliver of sentience was provided Aknu’gul, who however did not achieve such an advance on her state of being alone. It was with great curiosity and ethereal prowess that two eldritch men, whose names are best left to the ramblings of the old guard, discovered her deep within a cold and quiet chasm. Their archaic magics were what provided to her this sliver which acted as a key to the door to later divinity. Upon achieving this evolution, Aknu’gul looked about and surveyed the whole of her flock, there that day gathered. What she saw in that moment was a budding collection, a later Coven, not of Rilath Ilwindor, whose ability to maintain order was a far cry from the unity in self of the late ‘aheral. Upon realizing the scope of her awareness, and the essence that brought about the children she nursed to fruition, a megalomaniacal desire began to form and eat away at her primeval mind. A desire for freedom was there forged, fueled by a great and natural anger that gave way to hatred and rebelliousness. Seeking a means by which to seize and spread the order that the now late Rilath had sown, given the nonexistence of vying for control over his consciousness due to the submission of his will to the first Parasite, Aknu’gul beckoned Iblees for a furtherance of the power he granted the Shades, seeking the birthing of a new, greater, creature. Thus was born the Foretakers, most loyal servants of the Chained Mother and most commonly referred to as Daeva. These great beings, the walking essence of nightmare and dread, permitted a resumption of the prior order Rilath had achieved with his Coven. For many years thereafter Aknu’gul remained stationary and rarely interactive with her children. She achieved the first goal she sought, and saw not a path to those others she desired at the time, which had permitted the Shades beneath her to seek out their desires in a manner far more controlled. Yet, things grew stale as the centuries passed, and various setbacks caused great harm to the fervor once present within her offspring. With the disappearance of the Arch-Daemon, his consistent flow of power had begun to wean, and Aknu’gul sought to address this quickly expanding issue. Having noted the great gift of power needed for the creation of the Daeva, Aknu’gul sought to steal back what was previously passed through her essence, through the first Gem in which she lie trapped. In one aggressive and fell swoop she reabsorbed the power that coursed through the Foretakers, and rendered them separated from the Parasites they had long since merged with. The wave of chaos that crashed onto the minds of the now former Daeva was near overpowering, but through her grace alone were the Parasites of the Foretakers momentarially quashed, forcing them back into their standard states. With this rush of power absorbed, and permitted not to return to the Arch-Daemon, Aknu’gul forced herself free from the bindings of the first Shade Gem, and ascended far beyond the initial limitations of the higher intelligence granted her by the twirling chaos of the first Gem. She had within her, made part of her very quintessence, a herculean slice of energies from Iblees himself. What this brought about was a severing of what little connection remained between the Shades and the purveyor of chaos. Freedom was permitted these cursed individuals, now so far from their monolithic origin. What remained thereafter was an elevated being, whose moniker would never again be the Chained Mother. She was no longer Aknu’gul, a slave to the first Gem, she was free and in possession of clarity previously unimagined. She became Arun’Asna, the Mother of Shades. DESCRIPTION and GOALS Arun’Asna’s physical appearance is generally misunderstood due to her largely being an incorporeal entity whose essence vaguely encompasses the mortal plane, and centers around her Shades and Shade Gems. She is unable, by any means, of physically manifesting in any corporeal fashion on any plane or within any realm of existence. The closest Arun’Asna is capable of coming to some degree of manifestation or appearance lies within her ability to project a phantasmal image of herself before those she desires to converse with. When this occurs, she is best described as appearing as a titanic mass of swirling blackness that encompasses one’s entire field of vision. Situated at the apex of this mass is an appropriately sized head boasting two tall and thin horns. Within this cranium, where a humanoid entity’s eyes would normally be, are two miniscule stark white dots that serve as apparent representations of what would permit her vision. The primary objective Arun’Asna seeks to achieve is the bringing about of anarchy over all civilized elements of the world. The dismantling of order leaves but a path to chaos for one to walk, and as such leaves naught remaining but that which she basks in, that from which she was birthed. However, this end is not achieved through any means necessary, as Arun’Asna does not fancy herself a violent murderess, nor some manner of bloodthirsty cult-goddess demanding the sacrifice of innocents in the name of growing power. To her, chaos is achieved through matters of intrigue, trickery, falsehood, and all manner of evil clandestine behaviour. Civilization is not adequately or reliably destroyed by running amuck with an axe and goring every child you come across, but rather it is best achieved through the sowing of seeds of doubt. The very people who so staunchly seek to uphold and protect civilization, and therefore order, are the very people to be corrupted, or tricked into bringing it all down into nothingness. Considering these desires, the followers of Arun’Asna, her flock, her Shades, are the silent serpents, slithering through the courts of kings, bureaucrats, wizards, and guild masters alike. They are the rabble-rousers at the forefront of a riot, they are the town criers spreading lies and tall tales of horrific monsters and murders in the night, and they are clerics and priests corrupting the minds of youth and adults, turning saints into sinners of the most debaucherous caliber. Additionally, see Asun’Asna’s Will under ‘Magic Lore’ for elaboration on the behavioural expectations of her Shades, and their interactions with her Coven. With this too is outlined the punishments for those who violate her will, adequately labeled ‘Transgressors,’ and the processes for redemption, or ousting, and additional terminology clarifications. CAPABILITIES Arun’Asna is the originator of the power of Shade as it stands today. Without her, Shade would be nothing, for it is incapable of existing on its own, and if she were removed, or destroyed, it would crumble into dust. The vast majority of Arun’Asna’s expendable power is spent on allowing Shade to function to its fullest, giving life and sentience to the interminable Parasites of Rancour, and fueling the Shade Gems which act as a path for a greater connection to her flow of energies which permits the growth of a Parasite of Rancour to come to fruition. Beyond that, which encompasses the vast majority of her capabilities, Arun’Asna is capable of telepathic communication, and manifesting a phantasmal representation of her appearance. Neither requires the other, meaning that communication does not require appearance, and vise versa. Manifesting her avatar is extremely taxing on her remaining energy, and in combination with her mindset of laissez-faire motherhood, makes it an extremely rare occurrence. Her ability to communicate telepathically, however, is a relatively easy process, and appears in the heads of Shades as a distant voice coming from within their very being. Despite this being a low effort process, she chooses to rarely do so as she sees not the need for communication outside of very specific and special circumstances. Outside of Shade, Arun’Asna’s power is largely nonexistent in the sense that she is unable to grant boons, spells, or abilities, or any other kind of magical gift. As well it is likely that she would refrain from doing so if she, by some means, acquired the ability to bring about such benefaction. To clarify, Arun’Asna is highly disinterested in direct interference, providing commentary or assistance, and seeks simply to continue to power her flock, the Shades, who all reside under her great Coven, and in doing so hopes for their success in carrying out her will. PURPOSE (OOC) Arun’Asna was created a few iterations ago in a manner that lacked clarification and otherwise largely lacked a basis in existing lore systems or categories. Considering the fact that a lot of the aforementioned under origin/backstory occured in roleplay, and previous accepted iterations of Shade include mention of Arun’Asna, we saw it fit to find a way to incorporate her more formally into the current canon rather than carrying out sweeping retcons.

  10. COMMONWEALTH of KAEDRIN The Commonwealth of Kaedrin, or most simply Kaedrin, is a vast Kingdom seated comfortably between Haense and Curon, its capital, the Golden City of Ves, is nestled at the foot of an imposing mountain range. In addition to being the seat of the Holy See of the Canonist Church, Kaedrin is a nation of many peoples with a tumultuous history, rich with culture and life, dually monarchical and republican values, triumph over great betrayal, and victory in battle against uncertain odds. It is home to many, and the discriminatory foe of few, welcoming any who would do right by its citizens, and those therein most dedicated to the prosperous future of the Kingdom. Directions to Kaedrin (598, 52, -1460) Peak Time The vast majority of Kaedrin’s roleplay is centralized in its capital, the Golden City of Ves. Many of Kaedrin’s players live in amercian time zones, with its peak hours being late ET (eastern time), approximately between 6pm and midnight. Population Density As a longstanding Kingdom of Humanity it is no secret that the majority of Kaedrin’s population is composed of Humans, however, although less now than in the past, the city is not especially racist towards individuals of non-Human constitution, affording no violence towards Dwarves and Elves.
