The Church of the New Sun

By:

Worship of the God may cleanse one's soul, but it is only by scourging the impurities from one's self that we might hope to cleanse the body. -Preludes, the Cants

Built upon the words of the Prophet, the Church sees to the spiritual and physical needs of the Pure.  Being the only organization of any significant power among the humans living under the Eternal Darkness its power reigns unchecked, however, at least in this case, absolute power has not corrupted absolutely, only moderately.  With missions found in every major community among the human 'lands' and roaming priests to see to the spiritual and earthly needs of those in the minor communities.

Orders:

Order of the Sun - traditional clergy + added duties of judge, census taker, and tax collector.  the cake job in the order is to get assigned to a fixed temple, to act as a local ruler/priest, however most jobs are of the wandering 'missionary' kind.  This is the primary branch of the Church, and what most people think of when talking about the church.  Higher levels are the bishops, ruling over larger regions, and the pope/caliph the head honcho for teh church.

Order of the Faithful - assassins witchhunters and spies, self references as teh knife of the prophet, never talked about, and feared to occupy every dark corner of the human world, and there are a lot of those, the Faithful are the inquistion of the Church, stamping out heresy where ever they find it, whether it be dogmatic heresy, with a single priest preaching that man isn't the author of his own destruction, or heresy of a viler sort, a sorceror among the populace. 

Wardens against the Dark - the militant arm of the church, this is the army of the faithful waging a constant crusade against the slaves of the dark mother.  Everyone is conscripted into the Wardens for a little bit in their life, to fight the hordes that threaten the existance of us all.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The old clock tower stands tall, but the bulk of the uppermost storey is crumbling and unsafe, with gaping cracks in the walls. The metal struts and girders supporting the great bronze bells are still intact, though, and the bells survive. The grotesque gargoyles and arabesques which decorated the original design have either fallen into the street (once or twice a year more bricks fall from the tower, prompting calls for its demolition) or have been defaced, but the main doors to the clock tower are still intact and show signs of being kept in working order. This is the home of The Captains, clad in raggedy clothes, with sooty faces, and perpetually runny noses. But behind each set of eyes is the look of a survivor. They live to stick together and make it through each day. Older than their years in many ways, the friendship they share with each other and Wims ghost keeps the core of a childs innocence and hope alive in each. But they are still very suspicious of outsiders. They are a group of street children who live in the clock tower. Some are orphans, some runaways, and some nomads who occasionally return to their homes. But they’re all poor, dirty and perpetually hungry, as well as being wily, unscrupulous and mischievous in a fairly brutal way. Enough of them have suffered at the hands of adults for all of them to be wary of any grown-ups, particularly ones who ask too many questions, although with hard work and a lot of food it might be possible to win the confidence or even the trust of a few of them.
