The Iron Pentacle
The Iron Pentacle is the Church, Government and Army integrated into one organization. Lead by a council of five divinely inspired High Priests who direct the activities of the nation. They are tasked with defending the realm from “The Evil One” and maintaining order throughout the land.
The tenets of the Iron Pentacle speak of the all mighty “Lord Father” and what he requires of his servants so they may prosper. These laws admonish obedience, humility, and the rejection of power that takes away glory from god. As a result, the abhorrence of sorcery and witchcraft is ingrained into all aspects of society. Magick is thought of as using demonic forces to circumvent god’s divine order.
The average citizen faithfully accepts the law as righteous despite knowing the system to be flawed to one degree or another. They still appreciate the comforts and security provided by it, oppressive as it might be to some. They view the problems in the world as the result of those who do not adhere to the tenets of the Iron Pentacle.
