Altruistic Concilium of Sacred Architecture
For the betterment of Cathedris
To shephard in the future, we must build an improved 'tomorrow'.Within the Legion, secret to even the topmost military officials that run most of the organization, is a covert group working to bring about a new future to all of Cathedris. Made up of 9 members across various branches of the Legion, and sworn to silence; this group, known as the Altruistic Concilium of Sacred Architecture, operates within the shadows -- pulling blasphemous strings and conducting untold horrors in the name of a "better" tomorrow.
Purpose beyond mortal kenIt began slightly over a five years ago, when Legion operatives discovered the Errant Thoughtseed deep within an ancient cave. Following directives laid out by then head of Legion intelligence, Dr. Anabelle Evingston, the Legionnaires brought out the mind twisting, secret revealing artifact, and it immediately began to whisper terrible hidden truths to all those near by.
Repeat after me: I am no one. I know nothing. I've seen nothing.
Working from within the ShadowsThese days the ACSA has grown substantially; Dr. Evingston brought on another 8 like-minded individuals to form the core of the Concilium. Each one believes wholly in their mission statement, and would die to protect the secrecy they work within. The group has small laboratories and research centers spread all across the globe in innocuous places. The 500 or so people that work under the leadership of the 9 are distributed almost evenly across each location, and are confined to it, so as to prevent any information from leaking out to the general public.
Base of OperationsOn the books, the ACSA has no official head office nor main base. It's essentially a ghost organization within the Legion, operating out of hidden back rooms of other key Legion locations and research facilities. In practice, there is one main location that the leaders of the Concilium meet within most often; the Sacred Lab. It was recently built, located within an uninhabited stretch of land in the country of Hansun, not far from the north coast and The Teneran Deep.
The Sacred LabAn imposing, brutal looking concrete structure breaks up the lifeless landscape of Northern Hansun. Hidden on all sides by mountains, the Lab is only visible when standing above or on even ground with it. Within the massive bleak walls are multiple mysterious facilities, each with the explicit purpose of research, experimentation, or construction of "Sacred Architecture", the name given to tasks that are all a part of the creation of a new god. Ichor storage, Catalurgy experiments, and the harvesting of Rendling parts all occur with these sacred grounds.
The Sacred Lab
The cradle for a new god; the home of the Human Augmentation Program. A massive complex consisting of labs, research facilities, ichor storage, and living quarters.
