Hand of the Gods
The Church is the largest religious organization in all of Sholamnia. Followers of The Church worship a mysterious deity which they call “The One True God Who Is Not To Be Named”, and believe in a firm code of decency and righteousness. They believe the church and its leaders to be a weapon against the forces of evil and the blasphemy of The Old Gods.
As for the clergy, they exist as a strict hierarchy, ruled over by The Church’s patriarch, High Priest Rewyn Borne. Thanks to support from the monarchy, churches can be found in nearly all civilized towns and cities in Sholamnia. Each Church-occupied town is assigned a Curate, who oversees all church activities in the town, and who, in turn, answers to his Dean, a higher level priest responsible for all the towns in a given region. While The Church does not wield official legal control over Sholamnia, it is known that King Rudric is a devout follower. This has given The Church immense influence, as many people are afraid of the prospect of offending the sensibilities of the King.
