The Edge of Barine
Order of Beli'avari
The disciples of the teachings of Beli’avari who live outside of Nai-La-Ona refer to themselves as the Order of Beli’avari. They work diligently to protect knowledge through libraries that retain most of the world’s remaining written knowledge, and by copying books, manuscripts and other texts to be dispersed around the Ring. They also work to protect, reinforce, and respect the forces of nature through agriculture, ethics, and religious ceremony. Members of the Order must pledge an oath of non-violence and are forbidden from entering into combat, despite the fact that most are trained in various rituals and spells. There is a clause within their laws that allow them to break this oath without disgrace, but only in the event that loss of knowledge or disrespect of nature is at stake, and only if that is the only option.
