Order of the Dragon King
The Order of the Dragon King is widespread across the northern continent of Vóreios, the domain of the Metallic Dragons of the Council of Metallic Dragons. These clerics focus on war and victory, always called upon during times of great military mobilization to bring success. Even so, these clerics worship all aspects of Kallex, the aspects that allow him to be part of the Pantheons of Nature and Life. While war and victory are the main tenets of their faith, all are welcome that worship the great Dragon King.
Led by heroes and champions, only the strongest survive in the upper hierarchy of the order, but those clerics of the Life and Nature Domains are also welcomed. Kallex is worshipped as the ancient creator of a magnificient race, the pinnacle of godhood in the world of Isekai. He was a warring leader, strong and victorious, granting him the title of the pinnacle of the Pantheon of War. While mostly clerics are a part of the Order of the Dragon King, those other holyfolk, paladins of conquest, heroism, and those that have swore oaths to the Ancients, may also be allowed if they can pass the tests given by the grand dragon leader of the Order.
Deep within the Spine of Kallex, a deep cave has been carved into a mountainside where the leader of the Order of the Dragon King resides. Ruthom, an adult silver dragon, calls this cave his home and tells the stories of the god Kallex for all to hear. Some who join the order stumble into the cave and are drawn in with the intricate, weaving stories that the dragon tells through dancing illusions of shifting metallic colors. Others find the stories folded into the crisp folds of a folded paper dragon that gets left at temples and other holy sites throughout the various empires. Ruthom is the one that tests those who wish to join the order. The teachings are only part of the task of joining, you must also have the heart of a dragon to follow the teachings in the name of Kallex.
Once initiated into the Order, Ruthom gifts you with the armor or the symbol of the color-shifting metallic dragon. Wear the symbol of the imposing god with pride, as his visage spells victory in the dark hours of life. Those who serve in the name of the Dragon King have victory and strength on their side, but those who wish to invoke the king's name for the wrong reasons, may soon find themselves staring down the maw of a dragon.

Tenets of Faith
Kindle the Light. Through your acts of mercy, kindness, and forgiveness, kindle the light of hope in the world, beating back despair. Shelter the Light. Where there is good, beauty, love, and laughter in the world, stand against the wickedness that would swallow it. Where life flourishes, stand against the forces that would render it barren. Preserve Your Own Light. Delight in song and laughter, in beauty and art. If you allow the light to die in your own heart, you can’t preserve it in the world. Be the Light. Be a glorious beacon for all who live in despair. Let the light of your joy and courage shine forth in all your deeds. As symbols of Hope
Actions over Words. Strive to be known by deeds not words. Challenges Are but Tests. Every hardship serves to challenge your abilities and harden your resolve. Embrace Destiny. You didn’t choose this path, but it’s yours to walk. And it will carry you into legend. Hone the Body. Like raw stone, your body must be worked so its potential can be realized. As symbols of War
Douse the Flame of Hope. It is not enough to merely defeat an enemy in battle. Your victory must be so overwhelming that your enemies’ will to fight is shattered forever. A blade can end a life. Fear can end an empire. Rule with an Iron Fist. Once you have conquered, tolerate no dissent. Your word is law. Those who obey it shall be favored. Those who defy it shall be punished as an example to all who might follow. Strength Above All. You shall rule until a stronger one arises. Then you must grow mightier and meet the challenge, or fall to your own ruin.
