To the Gentleman I address direct,
On topic of the turmoiled land we live within
That same turmoiled land as was lived by our fathers
And our sired ancestors storied.

Not a year goes by without crisis.
Be it of the faith, or the realm, or of coin
Of sorcery or subterfuge
The people of the realm,
The tinkers, tailors, weavers and craftsfolk look to the churches for guidance upon thier soul
But it is not primates and high fathers they meet

They meet the salted many
The turmoiled folk who sit amongst them
Loyalty is set to lordship
Yet friendship be reserved for friends.
The destination be set, 'tis true
By the primates in thier ports
But the ships of the seven's souls are steered
By the helmsmen of the lower faith.

For so long as that course stays set
To that lofty place
Those seats of grace
Our faith in our primates shall falter no more than our faith in the gods they serve.
For the low see no more of the high than the high see of thier gods
Fleeting glances
Across a great gulf
A symbol of the lives to lead
But no guidance that would move thier will.
Lysander Samos

Truth, Fairness, Balance, Honour, Justice.

Aramil, forgive me, but I'm not sure if that was poetry or a very long statement...

Either way, I believe you've made several good points.

Forgive me but is that a long way of saying we are borne of trial and tribulation as were our ancestors, this is a excuse at best and folly at worst.

As for your beautiful comments regarding not faltering this is nonsense some have not only faltered but fell from grace.

The primates have failed the people with their actions, theirvresponses have been agonisingly slow and for the most part have been done behind closed doors.

Where our the spiritual figureheads when we need them? only a few have falteringly come forward with promises to address the evils done but not all.

Every day without a unified front mistrust of the organised churches deepens which our enemy actively seeks.

I will come back to my point, what will be done? I am sure several high ranking members of the 7 light faiths have read this but the replies seem to be from those who cannot effect change or fully in still confidence to the people.

To not resolve this matter quickly does them a grave disservice as well as to our predecessors and when the enemy whispers to them about their lack of action, their blasphemy, their heresy and speaks of moral corruption and the people no longer respect the churches who will you blame them?

Theodore
If there's something I've learnt over the last 4 year's it's that priests of the Seven rarely use these notices as ways of spreading their faith.
I'm not saying it's true but perhaps the lack of response here is because they are out talking to the people.

Sidney does that mean they are unable, unwilling or unresponsive to these methods of communication?

In dire times we need to use every available avenue to ensure stability of the faiths which includes here.

And yet we still await their responses

I've spent some time with local villagers trying to reassure them and encourage them. I imagine a lot of priests are doing similar, I certainly had a Kharachian priest with me doing the same. Getting out there and talking to them is the way to go if you ask me, but then I suppose that can only happen if the priests know what's going on.

I find many do not even visit these notices often if at all.
I usually find only a very small segment of society within these pages.

Sidney im sorry to say your statement is nonsense, if you were selling mithril there would be a queue of the adventuring community waiting.

Also the Primate of Longstor feels it prudent to add notice here which also negates your comment

I know that I and my brothers and sisters will answer with actions.

It is right to mark failures.

It is right to mark what needs to be done.

We will correct this amongst the people.

And as for words here: I've put pen to paper elsewhere in these notices that we continue to stand against evil, that we will spread the faith, that we are here to work for the people.

The shrine marked by us in Derwentshire three days past was once of Abrowa. It was once of duality. It is now only of light.

And if one of that dark faith would test this. Come and find me.

Mr Meatshack

In this time my responses to my actions at the moot have been slow, but for good reason, it is folly to jump headfirst without taking the necessary preparations. In this case I decided to keep my head low until my trial was concluded in all its aspects. That way, armed with the facts, I could come forth and apologise and attempt to sooth and restore the faith people had in me. As proved in previous notices, when one of the Primates had tried to sooth things before everything was concluded. they were met with confrontation, aggravation and provocation.

I have come forth and apologised, I have not hidden anything or tried to be clandestine. I am here, back in the public eye and in the hiring square, with my future uncertain yet guided by my Lady, trying to right the wrongs of my unintentional actions.

My roost has, and always will be, open to the followers of light.

In Faith,
