Ignorance is a poison, it weakens the mind and body, it destroys civilizations, and condemns the mortal races to eventual extinction. Only by striving for Knowledge can the mortal races lift themselves up and safeguard their future. Vrynn, The Chronicler, is the guiding force of learning, she is the source of curiosity and of caution.
Church of The Chronicler
Churches of Vrynn appear more as schools, libraries, or universities rather then traditional churches. Every member of the clergy is a scholar as well as a priest or cleric. Advancement through the ranks of the church is as dependent on your academic pursuits as your piety.
The Vrynnic church universally educates all children as long as their parents send their children four days out of each week for school and one day each week for religious services. The church requires that adults that need their services bring new knowledge in to the church. Still they are not without mercy and if the need is great they will aid without demanding knowledge.
Titles in the Vrynnic Church are descriptive, they give the religious and scholarly rank of the clergy. The title is given as religious title, name, and then scholarly title and its subject.
