The Coristian Order

<h2><em><strong>What is the Coristian Order?</strong></em></h2> <p>The Coristian Order was established on October 15th, 1815 by Free Form in the city of Damascus, the Capital of Coristis. It's roots were based upon a Cult of Changeling Worshipers who collected Changelings Artifacts from 1682 all the way up to 1788, meeting it's end when the Grand Master was killed by a stray arrow, causing all the worshipers to go their separate ways in life. The last Grand Master of that Changeling Order was Free Form, whom took an arrow to the neck. After returning from the medium, a place for dead Shadhavar to discuss their fate. Free went on to help build the nation-state of Coristis from a corrupted Changeling Hive with the help of a lost Changeling Mare named Brass Lantern. Together the two broke the curse placed upon the Changeling Hive and restored it to it's natural glory, and in that moment. Brass named Free her King and gave him general control of the San Palomino Hive. He'd quickly make changes to hive. Naming it Coristis and establishing an order which you now know as the Coristian Order, an order which seeks to protect nature and keep it in it's purest form, preventing all who seek to destroy the world of Equus by removing, and protecting all artifacts that could be used to hurt both nature, and the natural forces of life within the world. Those are commandments which all Coristians must follow.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><em><strong>How does one join the Coristian Order?</strong></em></h2> <p>To join the Coristian Order. You must first speak with Free Form, the Grand Master of the Coristian Order. You can usually find him within Coristis, or in Canterlot. Or perhaps, even on a train between Coristis and Canterlot (I know, he lives such a wonderful life, doesn't he?). If you speak with Free Form, you'll be asked several questions regarding your history, age, and occupation. You'll also be asked if you have a history revolving around Changelings and if you have any combat training and/or have served in a war. If you match the standards required for joining the Coristian Order. You will be given a pin baring the Coristian Emblem and will be requested to visit the nation's capital where you will be trained on various subjects including combat, espionage, non-unicorn magic, basic enchanting, basic survival skills, and then you'll be given extensive training on how to deal artifacts you come across on your journey around Equus which will have to be transferred back to Damascus for analysis and storage. Once all of that is complete, you'll be given one final trial before being considered a member of the Coristian Order.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><em><strong>What is to be expected as a member of the Coristian Order?</strong></em></h2> <p>Being a member of the Coristian Order does not force you to move to Coristis. But whenever you are called to attention to help deliver an artifact back to Damascus, you must attend unless given permission to stay out of the mission due to events such as pregnancy, or major injuries. This is also applied when called to defeat major threats to Equus. Outside of events set in place by the Coristian Order. You are expected to remove any black magic corruption from the world wherever you find it, and report it if said corruption is too powerful for you to defeat on your own. You are also expected to put an end to any and all Necromancers who haven't been put in power by Diplomatic figures, which you will be expected to bring to Free Form to discuss with nations that have such a magic user in power.</p>
