Inquisition {{ currentPage ? currentPage.title : "" }}

“Exsurge Domine et judica causam Tuam”.

Psalm 73, Motto of the Inquisition

The Roman and Universal Inquisition is an organization of clergy and laity with minor orders devoted to purging heresy and opposition to the Catholic Church. The modern Inquisition began after the witchcraft epidemic of the 16th century, with the craft of eidokrasy and increased paramilitarization. Two divisions then came, with clergy and consecrated religious handling doctrinal and theological disputes, and laity with minor orders handling paramilitary and espionage activities. The Inquisition has engaged in several covert and overt actions worldwide.


Current events

Tales from Ehrenland

Inquisitor Ricardo Lacson remains a fugitive from German Imperial authorities, wanted in all but one of the 27 German realms under Kaiser Wilhelm. Austria has refused him sanctuary, with the Habsburgs prioritizing peace and order among its nations rather than stroke Prussia’s wrath. The Principality of Honoria remains friendly to him, but Prussian authorities from nearby Hohenzollern territories have its borders under lockdown.

While Italy has pledged commitment to his capture under direction from the Alta Vendita, no word about him has surfaced from either Rome or Spanish territories. Indeed, the Inquisition has dispersed worldwide following the Italian capture of Rome. Many Inquisitors have taken refuge with Austria, Spain, or Russia.

Flame of Rebellion

Cardinal Giussepe Sarto directs the last remaining Inquisitors, including Ricardo Lacson who conducts activities in the Spanish East Indies.

Later history

In 1908, the Inquisition was disbanded by Cardinal Sarto, who had since been elected as Pope Pius X. Remaining doctrinal staff were reformed into the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office. The Inquisition’s former paramilitary and espionage agents, however, have all since retired or moved into other work.
