Imperial Temple

Gods of Justice, Wisdom, and Liberty Sword and scales seal

Alignment: Varied

Description: The Imperial gods are the powers of justice, wisdom, and liberty that helped the Varencian Empire overthrow the ancient Wensharians. They are led by Mithral and his daughter Minerva.

The deities of the Imperial faith deal with the governing of society, and the well being of the people. They believe in freedom and rights, with a code of laws designed to bring about greater good for society and individuals. Worshippers of the Imperial faith come from all walks of life, with the Imperial Temple and it’s various Fraternity Orders being the largest single faith in Varencia.

  • Uphold the highest values of honor and justice.
  • Protect the weak, liberate the oppressed, and defend just order.
  • Be strong and wise in all things.

The clerics and priests of the Imperial Temple have a multi layered hierarchy of ranks and responsibilities. The ranks run from Clericus (priest/student), Ceptor (priest/teacher) Praeceptor (priest/leader), to Primarch (arch-leaders). The overall leader of the Imperial Temple (when there is one) is called the Primarex. Outside the hierarchy are the Incantor and Praecantor (arcane scholars) and the Auruspex (prophets/seers/mystics).

Dogma: Followers of the Imperial Temple feel they must live up to a standard, as dictated by the canon of the church. The lands of Elysium are where the souls of the just travel to upon their death, to join the ranks of the aasimon, and protect the common good of the heavens. Those not blessed to join the ranks of the aasimon may qualify to become one with the lands of the heavens, while those who pervert the cause of the faith, or turn their backs upon it, either wander aimlessly, or fall prey to the temptations of devils and fiends.
