The Rite of Union signals the completion of the Divine Marriage between Cornelius and Xanthe, the goddess of vengeance. Realmwide and festoon effects from the Rites performed so far will come to an end over the coming week as their influence wanes -- effects, if you have not found them yet, such as more enlistables, quicker lesson gain, quicker days for sphere of influence and a few others that remain hidden. It is also a special moment for martyrs who attend, if they ever want to see their normal bodies again!
The Rite of Union is Friday 13th February 2015. There is a poll on Meetplace.net whether it should be the originally stated time at 6PM EST / 11PM GMT, or later. Feel free to add options for a later time if that is the only time you can attend. Choose all times you can meet.
For those who cannot attend, remember the Rite of Union will be a grand celebration with some of its festivities lasting later into the evening for those who cannot attend.
The Rite also marks the recommencement of the newly revised warfare system that has been in focus the last week. Warlords, on your marks!
