Charter

And so it came to pass that the 'Simple Sin' caused the union of the Gods Darden, Isonia and Foret to break up and launch them into battle. The murdered follower of Darden, the victim of the Simple Sin had been buried and given the last rites in The Church Of Darden. The murderer had not been found and it was remarked upon more than once that they were sheltered under Forets hand. The family of the murdered one sought solace in the church and spoke unto the priest about their need for revenge. He suggested that they visit a small monastery in the wilds of the world belonging to a sect of the church known as The Inquisitors.
The family journeyed to the outer edges of the wilds, a long journey one in which they thought to turn back many times, but revenge was their necessity and so they carried on. After many weeks they arrived at the bottom of a hill, on the top of the hill stood a greying fortress. At first the family were unsure whether this was the place, but as they stood there the bells rang out in the familiar ring of 'Approach ye faithful of Darden', the traditional song calling all to worship. Approaching the castle gates they were stopped by guards wearing Dark Studded Leather, in grim tones they asked the family what there business was with the Inquisitors. The family explained their goal and after a moments discussion between the guards they were shown into the fort. It was a lively place, guards, cowled monks and robed Sisters trudged to a small chapel built in the forecourt. The family were led on and up stone steps to one of the four towers which made up the fort. Knocking on a wooden door he waited, a minute later it was opened and the guard had a conversation with a smaller man in a brown robe. The new man looked the family up and down before nodding to the guard and scurrying back in, closing the door behind him. The guard turned to the family and asked them to wait before he too left and walked away.
After a while the door opened again the brown robed man beckoned the family in to an austere room. Seated by a window was a man who then rose to greet them. In his middle years, he had long dark hair tied back in a warriors tail, streaked with some grey. He had a large girth contained within a brown robe tied with golden cord.
'Greetings' said the man 'I am Abbott Kensington, please be seated' He motioned them to some wooden chairs with thin cushions.
'Pray tell me what brings ye here' he asked when all were seated. The famly related their story to him and when they had finished the Abbott steepled his fingers under his chin and stared blankly. After a small period of time he rose and stood before them.
'The Lord has spoken to me of his wish to help you find this murderer.' He clasped his hands behind his back and walked slowly to the other side of the room.
'It is a little known fact that this holy chapter is versed in the art of war and intrigue. Little known of course because we have lived in peace for many years and we have not been needed. But Darden was a clever God and foresaw that one day he may need a martial chapter on the world to oppose those of his siblings.'
Kensington paused for a minute.
'The Lord has agreed that we should use all the power of the Chapterhouse to look for this murderer although the search for this person may well take a long time. He could be sheltered by the hand of Our Lords Brother Foret or maybe his Sister Isonia has taken an interest in the murdurer. Whatever, it is clear however that we must look everywhere, question all those who oppose us and stop at nothing to find this pagan who started the killings. Maybe when they have been brought to justice can we then seek to place our Lord above all others. If not maybe we can crush the armies of Dardens enemies as we search for the truth.'
Kensington turned to face the family, fire in his eyes.
'Rest here and enjoy the knowledge that Darden will heed your cause, let all beware because the Ecclesiastical Inquisition rides the world again.'
