The Dawn of Earum
The Dragon Slayers
This Religion is catching like fire. Around 45% of the population of Silv believe in these
teachings. The other 55% include those who have not gotten word yet or believe that the order is being too hasty with these teachings. That the order is putting too much stalk into the folklore of deranged and frightened elders. These view points have caused a stir in the land. What would be polite conversation has turned into open hostility and even violence. No such greater example exists than that of Teresh. The current High King, Azeal, has openly declared his distaste for the new religion and has denied entrance for any baring the religious symbols of the order. Practice of this religion has not been outlawed, but any who openly believe are usually met with ridicule and harassment. This has lead Mondus to focus on Sanctuary and Tesoma. The people of Sanctuary seem to be very interested in the teachings but mostly in the Academy. While the people of Tesoma are having trouble adapting to the thought of possible punishment for what the order calls “misdeeds” and “Crime”. However, presence in Tesoma does bode well for the Order as many Elves, Dwarfs, and Halflings hear Mondus’ priests trying to spread the word from street corners and make shift churches.
