The Allegiance

The Allegiance is a religious order formed by the churches of various similar-minded gods in order to work together to promote the advancement and protection of the creations of the divine.

There is a grand Temple of the Allegiance found in the town of Legion’s Gates. Legion’s Vale is the only area of world where the Allegiance is known to operate in an organized manner.

Church Structure

In the temple, each of the gods of the Allegiance is represented by a priest.

A high priest represents the Allegiance as a whole, performing duties relevant to all of the gods to which the church is dedicated. Upon the death or retirement of the high priest, the circle or priests elect one of their number to take his place. The current high priest is Taggart.

Each priest has at least one acolyte groomed to fulfill the priest’s duties in his absence or fill the priest’s position should the priest retire, die, or be promoted. Depending on any given priest’s nature and the edicts of his god, he may have any number of acolytes and novices.
