Everlon: A Brief Introduction Part 4

Hey everyone, in today's history lesson on Everlon  we're looking at the origin of the Orem church. So let's get right into it ...

The Foundation of Orem church: 

After a thousand years, Christenity, the religion of the followers of Jesu, spread across the world to the west and was taken up by many Europan nations. All across Europa thousands of christens went on pilgrims to Jesarulem, what the called the ‘Holy Land’.

During this time, all of the Middle-East was ruled by the Persian Empra and for a time many Europan pilgrims were kidnapped or killed on their way to Jesarulem by Persian soldiers. The death of a French prince during one of these attacks brought the matter to the attention of the the Eurpan monarchs. The English, French, German and Spanish kingdoms came together and declared war against the Persians ruling Jesarulem. With the blessing of the Church of Roma; the largest and most influential church of the time, the armies of the four great kingdoms marched and sailed for the Middle East.

The war lasted only a year, ending with a treaty, signed by the Emperor of Persia and the Kingdoms of Europa, allowing for safe passage and settlement of Christen pilgrims in Jesarulem. The Church of Roma, which had hoped to capture Jesarulem by the end of the war, did not support this treaty arguing that the Holy Land belonged to the Christens and the church.

There was a period of relative peace in which the Christens, Jews, Saracens and Persians co-existed in Jesarulem, however the Church of Roma’s ambition for Jesarulem did not cease. The Church established its own army called the ‘Milites de Christe’ which was largely funded by the Spanish kingdom and the smaller Turkish kingdom. The army, which consisted mostly of fractions of the Spanish and Turkish armies, also hired skilled mercenaries and a large number of former criminals who were promised remission of their past sins once the Holy Land had been captured.

Many of the church’s early campaigns on Jesarulem were failures and their appeals for support from the greater English and French Kingdoms were ignored. It wasn’t until a duchess who was visiting Jesarulem at the time, gave birth to an English prince that the rest of Europa turned their attention to the Middle-East again.

The prince, who was named Richard was raised in Jesarulem and when he was 13 his spirit ascended and he became a Kero’ei – an event that the Church of Roma preached as a sign from Elohim himself that the Holy land did, indeed, belong to the Christens. The result was a phenomenal awakening of Christen piety by the Europan people. Hundreds of thousands left their homes and traveled to Jesarulem to see the Kero’ei prince with their own eyes.

The Church of Roma finally convinced all four of the Great Europan Kingdoms to support the Miltes de Christe in taking Jesarulem from the Persians. The four kingdoms spent vast amounts of money and resources on expanding the Milites de Christe, which soon numbered 1, 800, 000 strong.

At the turn of the 12th century, the reinforced Milites de Christe reached Jesarulem and laid siege to the city. The Persians surrendered the city in less than a month. After gaining control of Jesarulem, the Church of Roma’s heads moved there and re-established it as a state of the church. The church’s armies also gained control of the of the cities of Accre, Antioch and Tripoli. The Church of Roma, which knew that Prince Richard was very influential to the faith of their followers and the four great kingdoms of Europa, baptized and christened him the King of Jesarulem.

The further conquests of the Milites de Christe for more of the Persian lands in the next five years arose the anger of the greater Persian Empra which gathered an army of 3, 000, 000 to drive the Europans out of the Middle-east. When the Persians invaded Jesarulem, Accre, Antioch and Tripoli, they massacred the christens and destroyed the Church of Roma. Richard was captured briefly, but he escaped with a few christen survivors and was secretly transported to Europa.

After the devastating fall of the Church of Roma and the Milites de Christe, many Europan kingdoms surrendered their settlements in the Middle East and retreated back to Europa. Taking advantage of this fear, the Emperor of Persia declared war on the whole of Europa.

This fourth Great War lasted for almost seven years. Millions of people died and two of the great kingdoms, Germany and Spain surrendered to the Empra. But when thePersians were at the borders of france, the Scandinavians with the aid of the angels of war drove back the Persians. When the Scandinavians killed a million of the Persian Empra’s army in a few days, the Emperor of Persia called for a cease fire that ended the war but the Persian Empra retained all states that it had captured during the war.

After the war, the Arch-angel of Life and the Arch-angel of Death appeared before Richard in Monaco and instructed him to found the Church of Orem with the survivors of the Milites de Christe who would later become the known as the Orem Knights. With the help of the English and French Kingdoms, the new church grew quickly.

A few centuries later when Joanna Harte became the High Master of the church, the host of the church was moved to the continent of Enger in the west where it resides today.
