Blood And Iron
Alignment: Neutral Good
The Morrowan faith emphasizes the individual as a potential agency of good and stresses how each person can contribute to society. Its beliefs resonate with people in many walks of life and social strata, advocating improvement through self-reflection, good works, honorable conduct, and self-sacrifice.
Core to the Morrowan faith is the idea of Volition-that every person in life makes choices that determine whether they will be a force fol positive empowerment or for selfish gain. By association, pious Morrorwans are seen as good and reliable citizens while those who succumb to the “dark path” of Thamar are seen as evil, self-serving, and destructive. This is a simplistic reduction of the subtleties of Morrow’s and Thamar’s respective philosophies, but clear distinctions appeal to the masses. The more nuanced aspects of the Twins are left to theologians and scholars. Before his ascension, Morrow was both a philosopher and a soldier, a thinker who endorsed the virtues of peace but also recognized that armed conflict was sometimes necessary.
The Morronwan faith teaches that honor can be maintained amid violent strife if applied judiciously, such as to defend the helpless. This allows his message to have impact in times of both peace and war and to appeal to soldiers as well as those they protect.
In most of western Immoren, when a person speaks of going to church or attending to prayers, it is presumed they are speaking of Morrowan services. Small churches of Morrow are numerous in most cities outside of Menoth. Larger and more established churches become centers of their communities and are among the most impressive and well-built structures in their townships. These are usually assigned at least one ordained priest, along with supporting novices and pious volunteers who attend to the grounds, cooking, and other needs.
