The Abbey

Home of The Originator's Order, Bradstowe Abbey is the largest in Orlend.

  The Abbey is the home of The Originator's Order in the heart of Bradstowe. It is from here that thousands of Orlendians practise the Teachings of The Architect to live an orderly life.  

Orlendians believe that The Architect designed the world, and everything in it. Every living thing has a blueprint that has detailed plans of how their lives will unfold. Regardless of if your life goes well or poorly, it is all part of The Architect's grand design.

Tenets of Order

  1. Break not your word.
  2. Break not your vigilance.
  3. Break not the honour upon you.
  4. Break not your oath to live a life of order.
  5. Break not the order of sleep, as the sun rises and sets.
  6. Break not the buildings of The Architect's children.
  7. Break not your fast til the sun has risen.
  8. Break not the bones of any being.
  9. Break not the laws of the land.
  10. Break not the heart.

Events & Ceremonies

Many events and ceremonies take place in the Abbey throughout the year. Regular sermons are held on the first day of the week, with importance being placed on the first day of the month, so that the teachings can guide the rest of your month to be as orderly and smooth flowing as possible.   Many weddings and funeral services are held within the Abbey, too, with huge attendance for upper class and weddings of the nobility.
