The Pracalam Assembly – Code & Traditions
Code of the Clergy
The Clergy stands above the individual churches with regards to the following issues:
Ratification of any new Church Policy
Ratification of any change in Church Dogma
Ratification of any policy that crosses the Golden Table
Expenditure of Azure Table Resources
Identification and direction of Divine Law
Interpretation of the words of the Gods at Tharinos
The Clergy Expects
Full respect to all other faiths that stand within the pantheon of Dawn, Day and Dusk
The adherence to both Divine and Mortal Law
To show adequate respect to the laws of the Clergy and the members of the Azure Table that uphold them
Style of the Eleven
Advancement through merit to faith – No-one outranks anyone else but you may show meritous nature by having more sway with various Gods.
The community of faith – Each Priest sticks to their own miracles and do not share commonalities in such things as Speak with the Dead.
The purity of faith – That faith is separate from bodily needs and desires and that to be tied to ephemeral things is a corruption of Faith.
That there are better ways to achieve the needs of Faith beyond violence and the taking of life but that a need for such action is occasionally called upon by the Eleven.
That there are Dawn, Day and Dusk which are reflections of the journey but that there is also Night that is the moment after death and before the birth of life again.
That the Gillieabad are the origin of power and life in this world and that only with their guidance can there be the Gods, they are to be given veneration and respect.
Day to Day Activities
Pracalamites are new and as such find themselves very much in the public eye which has forced them to very clearly define their role in todays modern Basanic Clergy. The most defined answer is to act in the role of a Pilgrim and assist the people of the Royal Basin. After the Shadow War and with the newly formed Coalition they spend much of their time pitching in and specifically filling in for missing roles. Whilst they are mainly rural which means farming, road wardening, fishing and forest management a few can be seen in towns and cities aiding the militia or representing rural business interests. Through these labours do they show the involvement of their deity whilst at the same time offering their praise through such efforts.
Holy Days and Important Ceremonies
Each year there is a great Harvest Festival in Kern that is a deeply Holy time for the faith of Pracalam, there is no set date to the event but it occurs in the latter part oft he year, in the Autmn days of Tharinos. Extracts of written works by those that went to the first festival in 2018 are as follows:
