The Ethics

Lord Alvin put forth a set of six Ethics which he felt best encapsulated the spirit of his people. He calls on all of his subjects to remember them in their lives and teach them to their children. The state invested heavily in this concept by subsidizing the construction of its Great Cities, each dedicated to one of the Ethics.

Agriculture

Those who produce food in Albion are revered as the stewards of the people. Most people in Albion do subsistence farming but those who dedicate themselves to more are respected as leaders. The city of Agriculture is Albany.

Family

The Ethic of Family covers more than one’s blood relatives. Albinians considers activities such as caring for the homeless to be honoring the Ethic of Family.

Magic

Magic is very much a part of Albion, and those who wield it are both loved and feared. In the mind of an Albinian, concepts like love are a part of the realm of magic and as such wizards are generally expected to be well-versed in those subjects.

Philosophy

Albinians are encouraged to expand their understanding beyond the Ethics given here. Studying philosophy is a well-regarded activity. Most scholars credit the promotion of philosophy for the literacy rate in Albion.

War

It wouldn’t be a religion without taking some stance on war. Albinians are by no means warmongers but do take pride in martial arts.

Tradecraft

Those masons, blacksmiths and all artisans are not just more wealthy but also looked up to as embodying the creative potential of Albion. The city of Tradecraft is Calcherth.
