The Bastion of the Dawn

An ancient order and keep, the Bastion of the Dawn is the largest religious presence in the realm. The bastion is dedicated to all the divine but generally has few who follow the evil gods.

Society within the bastion is divided into orders, each serving an individual deity and performing specific tasks.

Politics

Each Order selects its own head from within its ranks, many having their own method. Yet the Patriarch and Matriarch are elected by the council of heads in a popular vote.
The Paladins operate as a semi-independent branch most belonging to an order but at the same time serving the paladins, their order and the bastion. It may happen that these causes do not share goals and then the paladin must choose. Currently both Sir Semual Roxely and Sir Derik Crest but heads over the leadership of the paladins, yet seniority falls to Roxely.
