Oath Of The Inquisition[edit]

Knights of purity, Warriors of judgement and the hand of the purging. Those who follow the Inquisitors and swear an oath to them will be considered the hand of their Deity, or the servant of the Inquisitors themselves.

Some will hate you for choosing this oath because you are a follower of a cult that kills, tortures and suppresses in the name of their deity with no limit.

Tenets Of The Inquisition[edit]

Inquiries. You are ordered by the Inquisition to investigate any suspicious act of Heresy anywhere it might be, no house shall be left undisturbed and no person shall be left unquestioned.

Purging. Purge them all, Cleanse them all, Burn them all. Don't bother yourself with who is innocent and who is guilty, let the gods judge them as they see fit.

Faithful. Have faith in your leaders, your orders, and above all have faith in your Deity, because if not, then you are no better than the ones you hunt.

Heartless. Mercy, sympathy, fear, and regret do not matter. Only your hatred for the sinners shall drive you toward your duties.
