Church Lore

Post  Storyteller on Thu Apr 21, 2011 3:09 am

You have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the Christian Church, it’s mortal workings, and it’s darker secrets.


Church Lore 1 - What a Layman knows

You know the Bible and it’s teachings.
You go to Church every Sunday, and pray regularly.
You know your local Minister by first name, and the location of all nearby Churches.
You may possibly have even been part of their Choir in your earlier years.

Church Lore 2 - What a small town Reverend would know

You have knowledge of the local workings of the Church in the area.
You know local regular practitioners, the name and location of all of the local Churches in the region and their own Ministers.
You have studied the Bible for years, and know its stories by heart.

Church Lore 3 - What a Bishop could discern

You know of all Churches within the Diocese, and a few beyond.
You know of the regions Church politics, and how to manuver within the political scene there.
You know that other forces, be they political or commercial have leverage within the Church in your Region.
You also have come across certain discrepancies within the Bible and related texts that have peaked your interest.

Church Lore 4 - What an Arch Bishop would suspect

You have the details of almost every Church in the Country, and can easily lay your hands on a list of all Ministers within those Churches.
You know that outside influences control many aspects of the Church, on every level, and that often, these powers have ‘unusual’ motivations.
You have noticed in discrepancies with the Church’s history, and have come to the conclusion that these ‘errors’ have been created to cover up a conspiracy within the Church, although you cannot prove anything.
You have begun to notice the strange placings of some Churches, and markings within these buildings.
You know who to contact, and how to contact them, to get things done within the Church.
You know who’s really pulling the strings of your local priests, and what needs to be said to keep them on your side.
You know that the Inquisition was not disbanded at the end of the 1700’s and that elements of the Inquisition still remain within the Church at some level, although you do not know how, or where.

Church Lore 5 - What a Cardinal fears

You know the Pope.
You know that the Inquisition exist, as the Society of Leopold, and that the Church has rescinded it’s backing, but it still remains.
You have learned that strange markings within Churches of Britain are in fact markings to distinguish Churches that were once controlled by Heretical priests back in the Middle Ages, and that these Churches were built in a particular style to act as a supposed Channel for Dark Forces.
You have heard reports of many strange incidents throughout Britain, and know that most, if not all of these strange events have been covered up by people of great power.
There is now in your mind, without a doubt, a massive Conspiracy.
Your research into the Churches history has shown you that many aspects of the Church have been changed over the years.
When the Bible was translated from Hebrew to Latin, many parts of the texts were greatly altered or are missing entirely.
You know that some Churches have a greater reputation for aiding their practitioners and that many of these Churches have stories of Miracles throughout the ages, happening within their walls.
