Those that walk in the Light of Isall know the glory of the truth and true divinity in the world. They are the strength of the people and the representatives of divinity upon the world and must stand as a shining example of Order amongst their kind. Those that do not adhere to the light of Isall cannot be tolerated. The children of Isall all work towards the grace of the Heavens and must strive to make their lives a living accolade of worship to Lord of Light and Lady of Tempest. It is far more honourable to die looking your enemy in the eye than it is to die with your back turned to them. The judgement of Isall must be delivered by all his children, even and fair, and brutal where brutality is necessary. The domains of forgiveness come within the remit of the maidens of Amirr. A man must always listen to the council of the women in his life, for they are the family that he protects. He must depend upon them to enact the deeds he cannot, be they gentle or ruthless.

Overview

The male aspect of the dual Sahradian gods, Isall is the light of 'true divinity'. He is a god that fervently pursues a path of glory, believing in the spread of his word and his teaching to all races. It is from the texts of Isall that the Sahradian laws are based, outlining what Isall decrees to be a life worthy for to be accepted into Heaven under his graces. A lot of these laws compound notions of family and community, laying out rules that stipulate equal treatment for all men that follow Isall's virtues and that it is the right of any man to enact Isall's justice upon those that go against Isall's will. The latest revision in the Book of Isall stipulates that no false gods, which are by definition gods that do not operate under the command of Isall or accept that the true divinity of Isall and Amirr, are to be tolerated in any degree and that those that pay worship to such gods are little more than dogs. This addendum came into being about the same time of the formation of the United Church.
