Commandments of the Lawbearer

  • Embrace the company and aid of others. The efforts of the individual often pale against the capabilities of community.

  • Strive to tame the wilds of the world in the name of civilization, and defend the points of light and order against the chaos of darkness.

  • Uphold and revere the spirit of invention. Create new places and colonies, build where inspiration hits, and expand the laws of the Lawbearer.

Erathis has a tempestuous and furious romantic relationship with Melora, the keeper of wildness, tempered only when civilization and nature are in balance.[8]

Trivia Edit

  • The Lawbearer's holy day is Civilization's dawn, celebrated on the autumnal equinox.
