The contents of this page are not readily available to everyone, either because it is sensitive or because it is rare or otherwise little known knowledge. It is here for the purpose of archiving or making it more accessible to a certain audience, and this should be kept in mind while reading the contents of this page and all it's subpages.
In short, the contents of this page are to be considered OOC knowledge, except for characters who have received an in-game copy.

To paraphrase, unless your character has visited a temple, or a priest, you cannot know about such things, and I ask that you would respect that much. Also, yes it is in Old English, and to reiterate what I have said on the talk page, anyone who wants a direct translation has to ask in Character either to me, or another member of Thulsoma, or visit a temple. Obviously using Old English (Circa the early Anglo Saxon period) is a roleplay device both for Thulsoma, and Hrēdmōnath and used to create depth and encourage Roleplay, anyone who wishes for me not to use Old English will be disappointed, because I still will regardless of what they quote at me about the social contract or otherwise, and I do not see why they would bother doing such a thing if not to try and spoil what we are doing here, unless they are really that sanctimonious to a degree of being a killjoy.

"Déaþgodas" is a specific religious term with multiple interpretations depending on context and the script it is used in, in some instances it may simply be interchangeable with the term Pantheon, or in others, Polytheism. The term is a highly guarded secret within the Hrēdmōnath, and is instrumental to the rites that take place.



The most common interpretation of Neorxnawang, is the "Field of Contentment", the concept of an afterlife, some considered it to be a word comparable in meaning or power as "Déaþgodas".

Followers and Priesthood

Hrēdmōnath follows a very strict hierarchical priesthood of its followers, one must follow the Anglo Saxon Virtues, the Commandments of the Heofon and be learned on the Holy Scriptures and the history of the Saxon's to become a priest, they must also be knowledgeable of other religions and cultures as well as their own, only those who are up to such rigid standards are allowed to progress into the ranks past that of a faithful follower (æfterfolgere) or a diligent servant of the Heofon (þéodenhold). Knowledge is something greatly prized within Hrēdmōnath, second only to servitude and faith.


The rank and title of the head of Hrēdmōnath, as with the Holy Army, a rank only capable of being held by a woman, due to ancient and holy tradition. The rank of the Heofonþrym is to lead the faith and the faithful Saxon's completely, any and all other titles are eclipsed by the power presented and held by the Heofonþrym. Officially this title is a shortened version of ForÞwíf Heofonþrym, and is in reference only to the religious duties, however one cannot be the Heofonþrym unless they are also the ForÞwíf Heofonþrym, an elevated position of near deified Godhood, for it is written that the Heofon shall lead the Saxon's to salvation, inheriting the limitless grasp and power of the Heáhcásere's, the one who would Reunite the Saxon Stormland's, founding the Heofonríce, the Reunited Kingdom Of Saxon Stormland's.


One of the highest ranks in Hrēdmōnath, given only to the most senior active priests.



A rank of Priesthood given to the most trusted of the faith, as their duties largely revolve around the management of the closed economy of the Hrēdmōnath, as well as the methodical distribution of funds and matériel.

Niðernes Ciricþingere

The second full Hrēdmōnath rank. Given to worthy þéodenhold who


The first full rank of Hrēdmōnath, given to all æfterfolgere who have proven themselves faithful and willing to increase their own knowledge, and abide by the Heofonic commandments and are guided by the Anglo Saxon virtues. It is the duty of all þéodenhold to donate to the faith and increase their knowledge, and to serve their leaders with grace and magnanimity.


This is the first rank given to all new noble members of Hrēdmōnath (Though it can also be used to describe the peasant followers in plural) generally this position is seen as undesirable in the faith, and it is considered a "Stepping stone", one used by the faithful to increase their knowledge of the Holy Scriptures (Bóctæcing), the history of the Stormland's and to become well versed in knowledge of foreign religions.


Temples of Hrēdmōnath are of the utmost importance, for it is in the temples where the rites and mysteries take place, it is also a primary means for Saxon's to be educated on the knowledge of their ancestors, the mysteries, rites, scriptures and all things holy, also, knowledge of the world around them. The Temples form an important financial body for the Saxon's, based upon its own economy and exchange rate, used as an effective means of the distribution of matériel and wealth, though the more monetary based actions are handled directly by the Ciricgeorn and the Servant Of The Coin. In each temple a great wealth of knowledge is kept, and even objects of the utmost important, such things are to be destroyed rather than to fall into the hands of the enemy.
