Ways of the Seven
While Valuan citizens are free to worship any non-evil god publicly, Erathis and Avandra are the official deities of the Valuan state and, as such, any Valuan citizen can be required to lay sacrifice to or otherwise acknowledge them if such is demanded by the state. This is rare, however, and usually only occurs in times of great hardship when the gods’ favor is sought.
The two halves of the Imperial Cults are the Cult of Avandra, which is a loose organization headed by a council of hierophants, and the Cult of Erathis, which is a rigidly hierarchical network of landowning clergymen and knightly orders lead by a supreme Patriarch. Both Cults maintain a special order of Inquisitors, who act as investigators and crimefighters as part of their religious duties.
