History

Current History

The lack of threat from Dragons has lead to increased friction between churches aligned to the saints of Ishtar. There are talks of breakaway sects, and major schisms within the church. In particular the differences between the church of Aeril and Moulin are on the verge of becoming direct warfare. Influence of the church is waning causing a crisis of faith of many.

Role in Campaign

In the past 50 years the Church of Ishtar has becoming increasingly fragmented and strained as the unifying threat from Dragons fade and individual Gods push their followers along independent paths. The Church of Ishtar has interest in these lands as they are the former heart of the now collapsed Dragonic Empire and may have valuable lore and records of ancient days. Perhaps some in the church see the Birthright Frontier as a place in which the Unified Church is relevant, as some threat from Dragons still exists here.
