Who currently holds the post of High Priest or if inactive the senior member of the faith at this time?

I have some grave concerns regarding the behaviour of one of our priests which, in times gone by, when our faith was more active would already have resulted in punitive action

If you want to catch someone at a local temple I would say Zara is you best bet.

This is all a little complicated, but suffice to say that Basil is the High Priest of the Lady of the Stars. I'm not sure that there *is* anyone who can legitimately wield his authority in his absence.

The problem may be crystallised by the fact that the two people I can immediately think of are Falorn and Eldias, whom I suspect would recommend differing courses of action in regard to most things.

My apologies for not being more helpful.

My thanks

I was to be honest mostly aware of this - I think I attended the last church outing and this was a good couple of years ago.

Maybe this is something that needs some serialism consideration going forward?

I will take up my issue with Zara. I don't believe this to be an excommunication issue but a young priest who needs a firm flogging and maybe a year or two with my people to learn some humility

The Lady is truly more wise than I

I am now led to believe that our Lady has already turned her eyes from the priest of which I speak

Issue solve

The matter of leadership and maybe even issue of our faith's inactivity still requires our consideration Inwpuld suggest

Bren,

I have been attempting to take action to remedy the latter issue. It is not really appropriate for me, of all people, to suggest how to remedy the former - although I can see occasions on which it could be a problem.

Huberis, pride, pretentions of divinity and potentially consorting with the undead in an unholy fashion

It isn't complicated. Basil is the High Priest, and he should stay the High Priest. Because he's best at it.

You should stick to wrestling, and burglary.

Basil ain't absent, he's just grumpy wit' us.
An' Sunshine's already been High Priest, an' he probably had a good reason f'r stoppin'

I thought Falorn spoke f'r the Lady of the Stars when Thomas weren't or was it Basil. Or somethin'
Anyway I'm going back to framing some sycophants. Me an Iggy ain't dun' nuthin' so we ain't.
Ask Martin, he's like the boss o' me.

It isn't complicated at all. Basil is the Lady's high priest, by Her will.

I don't agree with Basil on many things, and don't need to, for we both are instruments of Her will. I would suggest that you should stop worrying about who is highest among us and instead concentrate on the fight against evil. Perhaps start by hunting down this sinner who thinks he's a god and giving him the death he so richly deserves.

Brilliant!
Leave the church and still causing a fuss.
Oh I do not miss the immaturity and disorganisation of the church.

I shall stick to my 'evil' ways, and laugh at those who care.

In deep love for you all...

Nothing that I have said should be taken as indicating that Basil should not be High Priest. That is neither what I believe nor, of course, any of my business. Thank you for your career advice, Falorn, I shall keep it in mind.

It's quite sad what you've become, and I'm sorry.

You left for weak reasons and now go on this path. But, it's our paths who make us who we are, and turn us into the person we are going to be. I can see the different people you could become, some are full of light and love, some full of darkness and sorrow.

I wish you all the luck in the world Jacob, and a happy life. Redemption is always possible so if you ever wish to do so Valesius will take you by the hand and back into the light of our Lady of the Stars and Skies.

Let the light of the Valar be with you always.

Basil is absent.

Our voice has faded within the mercenary community.

Clearly, we should have a High Priest who is actively leading our Church.

I agree
While Basil may remain the spiritual head of our church, a leader is needed as our voice in the community (church, mercenary and empire). They would be responsible for organising gatherings and for resolving any short term / small issues we come to face

The person would not need to be the most potent of us, just someone willing to invest the time required to organise us and someone acceptable to the majority as our voice

Personally I would have no issue with Sunshine, Ignatius or Falorn in this capacity. It is more a case of which one would be prepared to undertake the thankless task

To be honest various things have interferred with the activities of the faithful, but drawing a veil over those, I like Falorn think Basil, and only Basil, should hold that chair for many and various reasons.
Jacob, please go in Starlight and do not speak here unless invited.
A lot of us are gathering soonish, aren't we Iggy?
I'm happy to try to organise something later in the year if all goes well?
In Starlight,
Zhara
