The Ascension of The Cardinals that Are

 

The Crimson King gathered together the Four Translated Cardinals of The Sacred Order and prepared them for Ascension to The College of Cardinals of The Crimson Order. 

 

Part I.

 

The Cardinals of the now former Sacred Order were sent gifts from The Crimson King.

To Each of you I give the following:

A Horse of the Apocalypse,
A Hooded Robe of Crimson,
A Sash of Gold,
A Cloak of Inquisition,
A Scroll of Title,
A Seat in The College
And of course,
A Key to the liquor cabinet.

 

"Your Crimson Title is written upon your Scroll of Title. You may claim your Title, Position, and Authority by riding your Horses to the Entrance of The College of Cardinals. Climb the Seven Stairs, and hand your Scroll to The Herald that awaits you."

 

The Four Cardinals adorned themselves and mounted their Horses, following the golden path to The College.

 

Four Crimson robed figures approached the Gilded Marble entrance of The College of Cardinals, riding upon the Four Horses of the Apocalypse.

 

One by one, they dismounted their steeds and ascended the Seven Stairs. Each of the Seven Stairs is engraved with one of The Seven Concepts, the Foundations of The Crimson Order. As they approached the Grand Doorway, the Great Eye above the door rotated and gazed upon them.

 

The Guards upon either side of the Grand Doorway came to attention, and The Herald of The College walked forward from his post and called out in a loud voice, 'Halt! And be recognized!'

 

The first Crimson robed figure approached The Herald, removed the Scroll of Title from his sleeve and handed it to The Herald. Then pulled back the hood of his robe from his head.

 

The Herald untied, unsealed, unrolled, and scrutinized the parchment.  After a moment, The Herald looked up at the figure and nodded to him, then turned toward the Grand Doorway and called out, 'A Cardinal Approaches, Open!'

 

The great door opened silently, and light shone out from inside. The Herald again called out in a loud voice -  

 

"Behold! The Cardinal of the Most Evil, Bhang Bhang Duc!"

 

The Cardinal entered The College.

 

The second Crimson robed figure then approached The Herald, and again handed the Scroll of Title to The Herald, and tossed back the hood of her robe.

 

The processed continued as before, and again The Herald turned toward the Grand Doorway and called out, 

 

"A Cardinal Approaches! Behold! The Cardinal of Chocolate Righteousness, Darkesia!"

 

The Cardinal entered The College.

 

The third Crimson robed figure then approached, and handed the Scroll of Title to The Herald, and slid back the hood of his robe.

 

'A Cardinal Approaches! Behold! The Cardinal Protector of the West, Wickedly Evil People!"

 

The Cardinal entered The College.

 

The fourth Crimson robed figure then approached, laughed beneath his hood, handed the Scroll of TItle to The Herald, and refused to toss back the hood of his robe.

 

The Herald quirked an eyebrow as he untied, unsealed, and unrolled the scroll.

 

'A Cardinal Approaches! Behold! The Cardinal of the ƐէհҽɾҽąӀ Ꭰմղցҽօղʂ, Yy4u!"

 

The Cardinal then The College.

 

'Close the Door!' called out The Herald. "The Cardinals that Are have Ascended!"

 

Thus ended The First Ascension.

The Second Ascension

"That was the Ascension of the Cardinals that Are. Now Comes the Second Ascension, The Ascension of the Cardinals that Will Be!"

 

Dispatches were sent out to gather 'The Three That Will Be', and The Crimson King prepared them for their Ascension to The College of Cardinals of The Crimson Order. 

 

The Cardinals that Will Be were given their gifts from The Crimson King.

 

"To Each of you I give the following:

 

A Horse of the Apocalypse, (Yes, there are more than four. Foaled in the green and broad meadows of the Estates of the King.)
A Hooded Robe of Crimson,
A Sash of Gold,
A Cloak of Inquisition,
A Scroll of Title,
A Seat in The College,
And of course,
A Key to the liquor cabinet.

 

"You have each applied yourself, given your service, and displayed your love of NationStates and it's players. You have proven your understanding of The Seven Concepts. You have stood in patience, waiting upon the Universe, and now your time has come. 

 

"Your Crimson Title is written upon your Scroll of Title. You may claim your Title, Position, and Authority by riding your Horses to the Entrance of The College of Cardinals. Climb the Seven Stairs, and hand your Scroll to The Herald that awaits you."

 

The Three That Will Be adorned themselves and mounted their Horses, following the golden path to The College.

 

Three Crimson robed figures approached the Gilded Marble entrance of The College of Cardinals this time, riding upon Three Horses of the Apocalypse.

 

One by one, they dismounted their steeds and ascended the Seven Stairs. As before, as they approached the Grand Doorway, the Great Eye above the door rotated and gazed upon them.

 

The Guards upon either side of the Grand Doorway came to attention, and The Herald of The College walked forward from his post and called out in a loud voice,

 

'Halt! And be recognized!'

 

The first Crimson robed figure approached The Herald, removed the Scroll of Title from the inside pocket of his robe and handed it to The Herald. Then pulled back the hood of his robe from his head.

 

The Herald untied, unsealed, unrolled, and scrutinized the parchment.  After a moment, The Herald looked up at the figure and smiled towards him, then turned toward the Grand Doorway and called out,

 

'A Cardinal Approaches, Open!'

 

The great door opened silently, and the light shone out brightly from inside. The Herald again called out in a loud voice -  

 

"Behold! The Cardinal Dragon of Pacifican Menace, Elegarth!"

 

The Cardinal entered The College.

 

The second Crimson robed figure then approached The Herald, and again handed the Scroll of Title to The Herald, and tossed back the hood of his robe.

 

The process continued once again, and The Herald nodded and turned toward the Grand Doorway calling out,

 

"A Cardinal Approaches! Behold! The Cardinal Mediator of All Things, Mediobogdum!"

 

The Cardinal entered The College.

 

The third Crimson robed figure then approached, bowed and handed the Scroll of Title to The Herald, and flipped back the hood of his robe.

 

'A Cardinal Approaches! Behold! The Cardinal Confessor of Moral Obligations, The Holy Principality of Saint Mark!"

 

The Cardinal entered The College.

 

'Close the Door!' called out The Herald. "The Cardinals that Will Be have Ascended!"

 

Thus ended The Second Ascension.

The Third Ascension

The Crimson King sat upon the Throne in The College of Cardinals and addressed those assembled.

 

"The Seven Cardinals have Ascended The Seven Stairs of The Seven Concepts and are hereby fully empowered with the Authorities of The College and Inquisition. May the Blessings of Max be upon you!

 

"With the Consent of The College, I Hereby appoint The Cardinal Dragon of Pacifican Menace Elegarth to be Regent of The College of Cardinals. The Regent shall also serve as a member of The Court of The Crimson King to represent The College.

 

Now comes The Third Ascension, the Introduction of The Knights and The Heroes.

 

The Herald of The College walked into the College and came to a stop, tapping his staff upon the marbled floor three times.

 

"My King and My Cardinals, I present to you, the Heroes of The Order"

Grand Hero of the Order, Prefect of Rebellion, and Headmaster of the Mystery of the Marsupial Conspiracy, TAO the Watcher
Lord Ambassador General and Hero of the Anti-Glitter Squad, Dalimbar
Champion Commander of the Order, Archsium

Holy Minister of Silly Walks, Tunapocalypse

 

"The Heroes of The Order are recognized by The Crimson King for their contributions to NationStates, it's regions, it's communities, and it's Spirit, in accordance with The Seven Concepts. Membership in The Crimson Order is not necessary for recognition as a Hero."

 

The King and Cardinals rose from their seats and applauded the Heroes.

 

The Herald again tapped his staff three times upon the marbled hall.

 

"My King and My Cardinals, it is also my privilege to present The Knights of the Order"

"Knights of The Order are recognized for their military service to the benefit of NationStates."

 

The Herald then tapped his staff once upon the marbled hall, turned around walked out from The College.

 

Thus ended The Third Ascension.

The Fourth Ascension

An attendant approached the Throne of the King and bowed before him while presenting Four Scrolls upon a Crimson pillow. The King took the scrolls and thanked the attendant who then withdrew.

 

"These are the first four Mystery School Charters of The Crimson Order."

 

The King signed and placed his seal upon each scroll as he announced each Mystery School.

The Mystery Schools

 

- The Mystery School of The Sacred Chocolatology, lead by Lady Darkesia
- The Mystery School of The Marsupial Conspiracy, lead by Headmaster TAO The Watcher
- The Mystery School of The Sacred Numerology, described by The Ancient Sacred Texts of The Crimson Order
- The Mystery School of The Warrior's Path, lead by Nagual Westwind

 

The King stood and handed the Charters to each of The Mystery Schools to their leaders, and placed the Charter of The Mystery School of The Sacred Numerology upon the Bookcase of Ancient Sacred Texts that resides in The College.

 

"These Mystery Schools, and those that are to come, represent the many concepts, ideas, and philosophies that are found all across NationStates. These and more support The Seven Concepts of The Crimson Order."

 

The King returned to the Throne.

 

Thus ended The Fourth Ascension
