Clergy and Temples
Most Solemn Order of the Silent Shroud
Recognize that death is part of life. It is not an ending but a beginning, nor a punishment but a necessity. Death is an orderly process without deceit, concealment, and randomness. Help others die with dignity at their appointed time and no sooner. Speak against those that would artificially prolong their life beyond natural limits, such as the undead. Do honor to the dead, for their strivings in life brought Abios to where it is now. Forgetting them is to forget where we are now, and why. Let no human in all Abios die a natural death without one of Kelemvor’s clerics at his side.
