Seekers of Joachim
Dedicated to the Five Tenets, the Seekers of Joachim are the largest religious order in Bastarnae. They hold immense political and social power within the country, but relatively little military power. Most of their members are concerned with the accumulation of knowledge or maintaining balance and harmony in their lives and others. However, there is a small order within the Seekers known as the Followers of the Narrow Path who maintain that the tenets of strength and balance must be literally interpreted in a physical sense and who devote their lives to that pursuit. These monks are few in number, and maintain Chapterhouses in only a few of the most inhospitable regions of the country.
