The first Divine Appointment earned under the new criteria - in this
instance an RL year of unheralded effort to demonstrate capability both
mortal and divine - as per HELP APPOINTMENT details. At the end of
2014 we had five requests for consideration. Of the five, three have
not made the grade and only one reached the \"final judgment\" - this
being something of a formality once the Appointment Route has been navigated.
Know then that it shall be ALARIUS, PRINCE OF MERCINAE and steadfast
soldier of the Light whose apotheosis shall also revive that most
important of realms, long represented by Apollo but needing an active
voice in the pantheon. Apollo steps aside to the \"Order\" realm (see HELP
REALMNAMES) as god of law. This is role-appropriate.
The first Divine Appointment by Right ceremonials will begin at around
10pm on Sunday 24th January (in 2 days) with formalities starting at
11pm and the apotheosis at MIDNIGHT where Alarius will raise the
sceptre of divinity and make formal his choice of realm and name and
inherit the power of High God and the realm he chooses.
Let us hope no doubt or honeyed tongue persuades him to change his
realm choice, and I hope those who'll benefit most from the renaissance
of Light will make their support known. Gods and goddesses, especially
those new to divinity, benefit greatly from mortal encouragement.
