Convocation of the Faith

Posted by Orazio on 08/25/18
In the past year the Faith of the Pantheon has seen great upheaval and many challenges. We have seen the loss of Legates to untimely death, the deaths of so many Faithful - including thousands of Godsworn Knights in Stormwall and Setarco. We have lost friends and defeated enemies and through it all we have strengthened our own faith in the Gods and Their guidance. We have built strong bonds and we are stronger for it. But the leadership of the Faith has existed for too long in our weakened state. And so let it be known that on this June the Sixteenth, One Thousand Nine After the Reckoning, in Convocation of the Faith we have made the following determinations:

We have reversed the decision to include the Lost Gods among the existing Tetrarchs, and instead create a new Triad and name a new Legate, the Legate of the Lost, Shepherd of the Faith. The first Legate so named is Legate Aureth.

In the past, the Archlector of the Thirteenth has stood outside the traditional organization of the Faith. While we understand that this is in part due to the very nature of the Mirrormasks, it presents difficulties for organization and for clarifications. Thus the Archlector of the Thirteenth will now come under the auspices of the Legate of the Lost as well.

As the Grandmaster of the Templars has decided at last to retire and spend the rest of her days in quiet contemplation, she has petitioned to be released from her active leadership duties to the Templars. With thanks for her many years of service, and gratitude that she will be able to share her wisdom with her successor, we hereby appoint Sir Preston as Grandmaster of the Templars. May he serve with the same distinction, and a similar number of trebuchets.

Additionally there are more traditional positions that have gone unfilled for too long. Thus do we appoint Legate Cassandra as the Legate of the Arts, Sword of the Faith. Legate Bianca is appointed Legate of Creation, Ward of the Faith. And Legate Ailith is appointed Legate of Concepts, Shield of the Faith.

Lastly, Beloved Aldwin has determined that it is time for him to step down as Dominus. He has served the Gods faithfully for many fine years, and so this was a shock to many. And yet it is a necessary step, and thus we pray he finds his late years good ones. For myself, I pray that when the last breath leaves my body and I stand before Sentinel, I may have as many fine deeds to recommend me during my time as Dominus.

We rejoice that at last the leadership of the Faith stands strong and united. These have been difficult years, but together we shall persevere in firm Faith.

By my hand this day,
Dominus Orazio
