Dealing with outlawed followers of the dark six

Post by Phil R » 16 Jul 2019, 18:24

Notices within other forums has led me to place this here to clarify a few points about the treatment of outlawed followers of the dark six.

I am under the belief that anyone who is a member of one of the churches of the dark six is guilty of the crime of heresy and as such is outlawed, as all heretics are declared outlaws under the law. So anyone fool enough to wear the holy symbol of the dark six and give praise to them in my presence will be treated as such, as heretics and outlaws who defy the law of the land. If I am in error then p!ease tell me.

What incentive or reason can be given to these heretics to make them valuable members of society? If they are arrested and found guilty of heresy and branded are they then protected by the law, despite still being worshippers of the dark six?

If they are then excommunicated from their God due to lack of worship or some other act then are they protected by the law and seen as better than a hetetic? Despite being branded a heretic and as an excomminicant?

Is there a path to stop worshipping a dark God without being excommunicated?

Sir Darkmantle,

It wasn't my intent to confuse. The law documents definition is:
Any individual who refuses to accept the authority of the courts of Ithron may be declared outlaw. The Chief Justice, Judge of Magistrate may declare a person or group of people outlawed. An arresting legal officer may declare someone an outlaw if they resist an arrest: as the person does not recognise the law, the law does not recognise the person. An outlaw has no rights under the law and, in the event that a crime is committed against them (i.e. their goods are stolen or their life taken), they have no redress against the aggressor under the law.
An outlaw who subsequently hands himself over to the law for trial/punishment may have the decree of outlawry revoked by The Chief Justice, Judge or Magistrate. Any crimes that the outlaw commits whilst they are an outlaw shall be judged under the law.
Admittance to being a heretic means that person is considered:
An outlaw who has no rights under the law and, in the event that a crime is committed against them (i.e. their goods are stolen or their life taken)
part of the document.

However the law documents recommendation of punishment isn't outright execution. Therefore the system allows for a second chance and also gives the accused a chance to;
revoke the decree of outlawry by The Chief Justice, Judge or Magistrate


should they hand themselves in. They even have a chance to appeal the decision if they hand themselves in.

To revoke the dark six would lead to excommunication but that does not mean the gods are turned away from them forever it's a difficult path but one if shown serious devotion can climb back to the Sevens graces and gain absolution.

Also being excommunicated doesn't mean you are Outlawed though people of religion might have negative views, but their conscience would be clear.

Hope this has cleared this for you

Respectfully

So the offer I can practically give them other than putting them to the sword is for them to escape the life of an outlaw and to return to society. Yes they would have to answer for their crimes and be branded and lashed. Then and only then could then begin the path of redemption, however they would always bear the brand of heresy and hopefully as an excommunicant as that would mean they would have broken free of the dark gods hold.

As my militia would say "that's a tough sell", but I thank you for your clarifications.

I have mused in the past that it might be worthwhile rounding them all up and sending them to the konn. (no easy trick.)
