Avani’s Doctrine of Shield

Local Newsletter Article Our local temple of Avani which was run by the High Priest Enne Aten has closed its doors, much to the dismay of the community. It was well known in the community for the support it offered to those during hard times. It has always in direct competition with Éla’s Suppression of Shadows for community support. Mayor Yan Crichton has accused the church and their leader of conspiring to incite violence and unrest in the city. There have also been allegations of abuse of power and crimes against children. Claims denied by High Priest Aten time and time again, but they have taken their toll on the faith of the temple. The numbers for serves are dropping with the reputation of the church being dragged through the mud. This has been going on for months. There seem to be no catalyst for these allegations, but the Mayor has the full support of Captain Rockwell Perry who claims to have a very strong case against the High Priest and is respectfully asking him to come to the station to see this matter through then force a public arrest. Aten has gotten himself legal counsel in face of his all of these accusations. At the moment there are rumours of the Avani temple pulling out from their location in the city, abandoning the city to be taken care of by the other temples. Some of the high officials are on the way from the Avani main temple in the Khanasi lands, no doubt this will create more tension between our Mayor and High Priest Aten. Perhaps after this it will be finally revealed if the temple to Avani really does have a secret library like the rumours say.   Other things of note • Seemed to have a good relationship with the mage guild, assisting them multiple times with research or protecting the city • Held free lessons for all ages to teach reading and writing to those in need • Allegations against High Priest Enne Aten never proven but he and his church were driven out of town. Also no article explains what the evidence was. • A few articles about Éla’s Suppression of Shadows and Avani’s Doctrine of Shield having conflict over serving the wider community.
