College of Clerics

The collective leadership of the Arresi religions. This organization stands as an effort to keep the peace between men and their ideologies, and control any fighting so that they don't slaughter each other in the name of the gods. The religious leaders control administrative territories within each country in exchange for tithes paid and services rendered, and the nobles and royals enforce the peace. The Church and Fellowship each send representatives to serve as Cardinals. The Druid Circle has honorary ranks attributed to them as visiting dignitaries. The Mauri Shamans are accorded a lesser place of honor.
