Differentiating Empire and Maran

April 25, 2017 11:08PM
Commonalities:

1. Both have a cause for which they kill.
2. Both are (generally) not killing those in the same faction.

Differences:

3. You may be part of the same faction as the good, without taking an oath or even directly dealing with Fortress. Just by virtue of your own behaviour (of not harming other gold-auras). Becoming safe from Empire in this way is much harder, and requires either the Oath or special dispensation from Emperors and such.
4. Imperials may fight and undermine others in the same faction, e.g. inter-Sect conflicts or intra-Sect struggles for Elite or Leader status.
5. Related to 4, Imperials may also directly harm their subordinates without referring to higher tiers of oversight. Marans generally cannot punish a Squire without referring to the leadership or IMMs. The extreme is Anathema, whereupon the Anathema becomes #1 enemy. There is no such thing for Marans, except in the very rare case of a Maran becoming red-aura.

It's not about killing, it's about self-awareness

You're missing an important aspect of Maran dogma.

This kind of reminds me of a short-lived religion a while back

Don't worry, you wouldn't have gotten shadow lord, you're not in the perma. (n/t)

You could have just permagrouped with the other Imperials. (n/t)
