[Announcements from the Christian Orders and Church]

(Text only version below image)



"Good Citizens of Vallaki, we are the Knights Templar, the poor fellow-soldiers of Christ and the temple of the Grey City.

Our mission and purpose is solely that, according to the commandments of our faith and the universal duty to our fellow human beings, we should serve the sick, the poor, the hungry and weak by the strength and means given unto us by the Almighty Creator of All. We see every person as a bearer of the Divine spark, no matter how poor or weak or downtrodden they may be.

We act justly.
We espouse mercy.
We walk humbly before God.
We stand for the poor and downtrodden.
We stand against those that would harm the innocent.

We are not the law, but we uphold it.
We humbly sacrifice ourselves for the sake of the burdened, the meek, and the fearful.
We mean no harm, but stand against those that do.

We are healers, guardians, teachers and servants.
We serve our Lord in serving others in sober compassion.
We shall feed you. Clothe you. Protect you. We are here for you and thy people, Vallaki.

Deus Vult."

Be it known

that the INTERDICT placed upon

SONEA EVERTALE

is hereby and immediately VOID.

By her own admission, Sonea informed us that she does not and has not held the faith despite participating in many of our rites. As such, she is not and should not be counted among the communion of the church, although she is welcome to continue to pursue goodness and amity with its members as much as she desires.

She is furthermore hereby RELEASED from any obligations she may have held to the church, as it would not be just for us to require those of her.

We thank Sonea for speaking with us and taking some moments to explain her situation. May the heavens smile upon her path.

Humbly,
V. Carro
Prelate, Christ's Church of Barovia

Friends and neighbors,

The prelate of the church has resolved to spend several days in prayer and meditation to focus on his ecclesiastical duties. He is not able to accept callers, although he will continue to answer correspondence addressed to him here as he's able.

Christ's Church of Barovia and its infirmary will continue to be open to those seeking aid, spiritual guidance, shelter, medicine, and physick. If no one answers the bell, leave a note under the door or find a Knight Templar, those who wear the white-and-red, or a Knight Hospitaller, those who wear the black-and-white, about the city.

Good fortune, godspeed, and the Christ's blessing to you. Walk in the Light.

Under pain of INTERDICTION and separation from the Church,

"BEN,"

the fellow who wears bandages and a tabard with the red and white of the Knights Templar,

is hereby given ONE WEEK from this day, the Fourteenth of Juin, to do one of the following.


--If he is a devotee of the Christ--

Present himself to one of the brethren and offer an account

OR

Write to the Church to declare his willing separation from it and his desire to seek the faith on his own, which he owns the right to do should he wish.


--If he is not a devotee of the Christ--

Write to the Church to state such. In this circumstance, the Church simply requests that he direct his attention to the letter before the week has passed. It would further extend its apology for the confusion and lack of clarity.


Letters shall reach us at WAREHOUSE TWO, Vallaki.

May the heavens guide your path. Walk in the Light.

Humbly and respectfully,
V. Carro
Prelate of the Church

// A notice is pinned around Vallaki, in Balok, Common and Latin.



It reads...

I, Ser Andrej Lorick Lorovich Kross, hereby release Diot in dishonor from her oath as Templar. I consider her no longer offered the protection of my station as Prior of the Order, nor that of any knight nor squire under my command.

However, should he not be of our faith, he is welcome simply to send a letter stating such.

Be it known that

For violating her oaths to the Christ's Church and the folk she swore to protect,
For committing actions that spit upon the love and atonement extended by the brethren,
For acting fecklessly in the face of numerous attempts to help her heal and overcome,
For betraying the trust of the Church,
For abandoning the Sacred Faith and the path of redemption,
For willingly consorting with demons and fiends,
For offering her allegiance to dark beings and proselytizing for such

DIOT ETHELDRED

is hereby and immediately declared

HERETIC, ANATHEMA, and APOSTATE.

She may no longer claim to speak for the Christ's Church or its orders, nor does she enjoy the privileges, protections, and sacraments granted to its members.

May the Creator be merciful to her.

Resolutely,
V. Carro

As before, the building houses a chapel, infirmary, and confessional--and now, holds proper guest quarters and a library that shall be open to all in good standing with the law.

Be welcome to visit when you wish. Ring the bell to see if we're home.

Friends and neighbors--

As the new year arrives, the Knights Templar and Knights Hospitaller have determined to unify in the Order of the Sacred Rose.

We remain devoted to the Christ and committed to aiding the folk of this land and to respecting the Burgomasterís peace. We maintain our vows and set aside foolishness and arrogance. As ever, we see every person as a bearer of the Divine Spark, no matter their estate.

In support of the folk who call this land home, we are prepared to offer 7,000 fangs toward the fund for the auxiliary tax.

Any local in good standing with the law who would prefer to work for coin also can earn 150 fangs for delivering certain goods to the Christís Church in Warehouse Two for charitable distribution. Interested folk may write to Grand Commander Lorick Kross for more information.


Good fortune, Godspeed, and Christís blessing upon you all. Walk in the Light.

V. Carro
Grandmaster of the Order and Prelate of the Church

Neighbors and travelers--

The Order of the Sacred Rose urges caution to any traveling along the Old Svalich Road eastward of the municipality.

This day, our number found the rent remains of both persons and animals south of the lake. Whether this was caused by dangerous wildlife or another danger is uncertain. Be cautious, especially if you travel after dusk.

Walk in the Light, and may the heavens set straight your path.

Humiliy. Honor. Hope.

To any who would seek to lighten the darkness and aid and defend the weak; to serve a Great and Good Cause; and to dedicate themselves to duty, piety, and service, the Order of the Sacred Rose extends an invitation to take up the faith in the Christ and seek ecclesiastical knighthood.

To any who would seek knighthood with us out of misguided military ambition, seek elsewhere. Our lot is to heal, protect, and aid. Our struggle is against Shadow and Suffering.

Willing souls may present themselves in person or write to the Christ's Church in Warehouse Two, Vallaki.
