The Rectification

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Introduction

The following document is a collection of currently accepted facts and theories on the secretive Dakdakrok religion.

An ancient and highly secretive religion practiced since the times of the Þingr (Cycle of the Snake) by a group calling themselves the Dakdakrok or the Disciples. Information regarding the belief system known as the "Rectification" is hard if not impossible to come by, but how is it that a group with the influence to annex an entire island and a zone around it has remained so enigmatic? What nefarious secrets do the Disciples hold so close to their hearts? This text aims to expose the truth.

Facts

    1. The Dakdakrok have existed almost continuously since the Cycle of the Snake and the Þingr Kingdom
    2. The heads of the Dakdakrok belief system, contrary to popular belief is not the Hierophant. The true leaders are known as the Bird Priests.
    3. The stated goals of the Dakdakrok is to provide services relating to the arcane to the people of the Empire. Trusted sources have revealed to me that their true purpose lies in a so-called "Great Error".
    4. These "Disciples" are nothing but a twisted cult consisting of the corrupt Elite and Royalty.
    5. What are they doing on that island anyway? Conducting sinister experiments on people, that's what. My friend Joleen went on a fishing trip on the coast and never came back!
    6. Have you noticed that Minerva pretty much collapsed soon after they revealed themselves? Coincidence, I think not.
    7. Don't even get me started on the kidnappings!

I am incredibly disappointed that this drivel managed to get published on a public forum. Perhaps it is a victory for free speech, but the contents are so libelous in nature that I can't help but feel offended. The baseless assumptions made by the author have little if any basis in reality and do little but paint our order in a bad light. Therefore, I will be using this "opportunity" to publish an article dealing with some of our activities, hopefully ending these vile rumours.

Just realized I made an error in my conversion. It is fixed now.

This is a most intersting revelation. The ramifications of this cult appearing and Minerva imploding are perhaps linked.

I await your "correct" version when it is published, Heirophant.

The Dakdakrok / Disciples

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
History & Context

This document was drafted in response to anonymously submitted accusations in the publicly accessible Hermertian Commons.

The roots of the scholarly organization known historically as the Dakdakrok can be traced back to the very earliest human civilizations. Meaning "Disciples" in an ancient Þingr dialect, the Dakdakrok has more or less existed as one continuous entity since before the Fleeing.

The stated goal of the modern Dakdakrok is to provide its own members with assistance in matters concerning the arcane. The Disciples have throughout the ages provided aspiring mages, alchemists, scholars and thaumaturges with sanctuary and guidance in order to achieve their full potential. In rare and exceptional cases, this expertise is offered to outsiders.

Unfortunately, because of persecution beginning with a certain group of Þingr, the Disciples have preferred to remain in the shadows. Only recently have they begun to resurface.

The Three Core Tenets

    1. The Cycle is absolute

    2. Master your mind to witness True Angles

    3. You are not Alone


Counterpoints to the Accusations brought forth

1.
The Dakdakrok have existed almost continuously since the Cycle of the Snake and the Þingr Kingdom

- This is truth.

2. The heads of the Dakdakrok belief system, contrary to popular belief is not the Hierophant. The true leaders are known as the Bird Priests.

- This is truth, to a degree. The Bird-Priests are indeed the supreme power in the organization, but do not take part in the general management of the Dakdakrok.

3. The stated goals of the Dakdakrok is to provide services relating to the arcane to the people of the Empire. Trusted sources have revealed to me that their true purpose lies in a so-called "Great Error".

- There exists a Great Error, however this information was revealed during our initial surfacing. It is not time yet to disclose any further information.

4. These "Disciples" are nothing but a twisted cult consisting of the corrupt Elite and Royalty.

- Baseless accusations. It is true that the elite are more likely to become Dakdakrok, if only due to their greater education, financial resources and time.

5. What are they doing on that island anyway? Conducting sinister experiments on people, that's what. My friend Joleen went on a fishing trip on the coast and never came back!

- Access to the Buffer Zone and the Isle is forbidden without express approval of the Hierophant or Gradients. The Zone is infested with monsters during the twilight hours which has lead to many unfortunate deaths. The Dakdakrok cannot guarantee the safety of unsolicited visitors.

6. Have you noticed that Minerva pretty much collapsed soon after they revealed themselves? Coincidence, I think not.

- This is mere slander, the Dakdakrok have gained nothing from the collapse of Minerva, indeed years of work on the Isle were lost.

7. Don't even get me started on the kidnappings!

- This is an unfortunate misconception that has seeped into the public conscience. People that have gained entrance to the Dakdakrok often prefer not to announce it to their immediate friends and family, thus when their escorts arrive to assist their passage to a sanctuary it is often seen as kidnapping.

Thank you for your clarification, Hierophant. Hopefully this is just a misunderstanding.

I wholeheartedly agree, Heirophant. Baseless accusations are a nasty thing -- they are not infrequently leveled at the clan of the Chairman.

On a brighter note, I have not heard of this religion before! Perhaps I should make a trip to your lands to learn more.
