Prophecy: St. Cuthbert

St. Cuthbert

Associations

The deity of retribution exacts revenge and just punishment on
those who transgress the law. Because evil creatures more commonly
and flagrantly violate laws than good creatures do, St. Cuthbert
favors good over evil, though he is not good himself. He may have
once been a mortal man (as his worshippers claim), but if so it was
long ago and from an unknown branch of humanity. His origin though
associates him with common sense as it applies to mortals. He is
also associated with wisdom, honesty, truth, discipline and
zeal.

Purpose

The words of St. Cuthbert are wise, practical, and sensible.
Among his followers, thw Word of the Cudgel is law,a nd his
followers take pains to spread the word so that all may benefit
from St. Cuthbert’s wisdom. Weakness in faith and acting against
the Saint’s teachings are intolerable, especially in believers. St.
Cuthbert exhorts his followers to make increasing efforts to bring
unbelievers into the fold. Honesty, truthfulness, practicality, and
reasonability are the hightest virtues, says St. Cuthbert.

Church Description

Clerics of the Cudgel are stern folk who speak their minds
plainly. They do not suffer fools and disapprove of those who
backslide in faith. They train in the arts of war and keep
themselves physically fit. Many serve as constables, detectives,
judges, and bounty hunters.

Church Structure

Temples of St. Cuthbert are always solid and imposing. Their
entrances or facades invariably feauture inscriptions of quotations
attributed to the Cudgel. These can be inspirational, such as:
“Chaos and evil prevail where good folk do nothing.” Or even
threatening, such as: “Obstinacy brings lumps to the heads of the
unfaithful.”
