A Farewell To Kings
The Five Laws
Monastic practice in Halb has been overseen by the The Five Laws since time immemorial. Legend holds that five wise persons met each other in a tavern by chance and through their lawful camaraderie they struck a bargain: each would establish a place where their teachings would help keep the natural order of the world in the face of chaos. These holy places were the first monasteries that would-be acolytes now focus their pilgrimages towards.
The Temple of Unyielding Light is that of Heironeous (LG) and is located in Hurthi Okarthel and, more recently and controversially, at Gallinokis.
The Crucible is that of Moradin (LG) and its somewhat clandestine location is said to be in the heart of the Letiet mountains.
L’Ordre de la Croix-Argent Veritas is that of St. Cuthbert (LN) and is located in the Stirgid Blade mountain range.
Wee Jas’ Bethel is that of, obviously, Wee Jas (LN) and is rumoured to not exist at all.
Hearth Nomads have no temple but follow the ways of Yondalla (LG) and they continually travel from place to place
It’s said that when a change in monastic tradition that affects The Five Laws needs to be discussed, the heads of each order meet in a way similar to the first meeting eons ago.
