The Order of Truth
Established 400 years ago by the original Amber Pope, High Father Calaval, The Order of Truth is perhaps the most powerful organization in all of the Steadfast. It’s members are called Aeon Priests, and are experts in handling, identifying, and using numenera and other ancient lore.
Although The Order of Truth is structured like a priesthood, with its members calling themselves priests, they are not in fact a religion- it is a veneration of science, technology, and the numenera. Still many people treat the order like a religion, and the order has done little to discourage the idea. In some of the larger cities they have begun to hold quasi-religious services and ritualized their teachings to encourage this idea.
In addition to the Aeon Priests, the order maintains a small army as well as a large organization of scribes, clerks, and other personnel. Their headquarters lies in the city of Qi, the capital of Draolis, in a complex known as Durkhal.
