The Church of Light and Law
It is said the Lion roars at midnight in the darkness to warn the Lantern Priests against danger. Those who pray to Rezmir may see a giant winged Lion in their hour of greatest need. If it does not roar, then all is lost, for defeat has been decreed by the Light of Law. If it does roar, it is a sign of Rezmir's favor.As the most popular religion in the known world, Lantern Priests and Rezmir's ideal of Light and Law stretch across Erenel. Lantern Priests follow the Dogma of Rezmir and look to bring his tenets to settlements in need of aid. By their decree; no one is above the Law, no matter their position of power.
Tenets of Light and Law
- Always search for the presence of Light.
- Give no mercy to those who twist the Law for selfish gain.
- No one is above the Law, not even Lords and Kings.
- There cannot be peace without justice; nor justice without law.
- Shine a light on the darkness of injustice, wherever it may lurk.
The Church divides itself into three main orders filling different roles in society, all striving to bring order to Erenel.
Of the Book
Of the Road
Of the Word
Every Sulnarya, Rezmir's faithful will keep a ceremonial lantern lit outside their door or visible in a window as a way of showing their devotion and to welcome in a new week of work. Followers of Light and Law attend their place of worship every other Sulnarya for a sermon. The preacher of the Word will teach what he has been studied by the Brothers and Sisters of the Book. Missing sermons is a common occurrence and not frowned upon as long as followers advocate Light and Law in their community. How difficult the Week of Atonement is for all followers of Light and Law hinges on how well you followed and praised Rezmir's tenets that year.
