Tenets of the Church of the Holy Wreck
Wrecks are sacred. Make as many as you can. The Steel hungers.
NQ staff are the Angelic crew of the Holy Wreck, and are there to help when you lose your ship.
(After PVP is introduced) Join in Holy battle once or month (or more regularly) at the sacred Wrecking grounds. You don't have to come to all of them but you should try to make some of them. The Sacred Battleground will be designated once we know where the safe zones aren't.
Try to convert others to the Holy Wreck or into holy wrecks, whatever is easier.
Souls who flee Blessed combat are weak and their craft is not worth emulating the Holy Wreck.
Traders may pay a penance to avoid their souls burning amid the steel.
Greetings, my fellow Star Souls.
(Makes the sign of the Wreck by describing a w shape denoting a ship bouncing off a planet followed by a closed fist opening indicating an explosion. W! is the text of this.)
I am here to tell you about the Holy Wreck that crashed to save our souls and free us from our skins.
Blessed be the Holy Wreck! W!
The Wreck careth not about your base connections to other orgs, for the burning steel of the saviour loves all that lie in its screaming trajectory of peace.
All the Wreck asks is that you recognise it has your one true God and you, from time to time, come and join us for family picnics, charity work and heretic burning.
Being a forward looking Church, we have created several heresies for you to belong to, in case you are struggling to feel the dread love of impact.
Each last Sunday of every Month, after Holy PVP has been instituted, Mother Church and the Heretics will meet at the Sacred Battleground to create Holy Ruin and litter the ground with our offerings of blood and ships. It's basically a free for all, demolition derby battle, (if only two sides show up it will be a miracle w!). Come and hone your combat skills in ships you don't mind losing. The only stipulation is that you leave at least one ship wreck behind on the battle field.
The Official Heresies include;
The Explodists: wicked folk who make the explosion symbol before describing the W. Their symbol is !W.
The Graviticists: these infidels believe the important part of the faith is the gravity that caused the Wreck to hit Alioth. G!
The Mechandrites: these philosophically feeble upstarts believe they are honouring the Holy Wreck by repairing the ships of strangers to ensure the Holy Wreck is the only wreck. Madness! M!
The Wanderer Cult:. Thus frankly insane sect believes the holy Wreck bounced off Alioth and wanders the Galaxy looking for souls to crew it! W.
Feel free to make your own cult, or stick to the Orthodoxy. It doesn't matter. The Holy Wreck knows all Star Souls and loves you all, even if you are burning on a stake.
From time to time there will be an Holy Crusade where we convert non believers into wrecklets.
Practically, this means we may decide to join in the wars of others on either side, or both. Donations to our Orphans and widow fund may sway us to one side or the other.
