The Yeshuah Prophecy
The United Church of Sempaurora
In the times since Sempaurora’s founding by Gui-Naq, the Fifth Life of the Yeshuah, Sempaurorans have faced much stress. Many clung to the Church of Heironeus, the First God, but found the faith difficult and never felt the support of divinity. Eventually understanding that they were forsaken by the original gods, the people of the Church began to seek more immediate power. With the discovery of Phaeleg, an immortal who cast aside his mortal body for protection from the uncertainty of the veil, the church began to revere the being. What was once a wholesome faith quickly perverted into a cult and humble practitioners became power-hungry murderers. Thus, the United Church was born.
After being uncovered by an apprehensive Jacob Cromwell, he let the leader of the Church Danner Smythe continue his plans out of a blind loyalty to the state and its many aspects. When the United Church began to challenge the authority of King Blaine Crucoy, Jacob finally intervened. Armed with the plans for Project HAMMER given to them by Jacob Cromwell, the United Church took the war into their own hands and threatened to obliterate Izaru with a HAMMER three times the size of the HAMMER that destroyed Akumephis. Jacob led his allies against the Church, killed Smythe’s replacement, Peter Grandyville, and with Quan Genero’s help, safely detonated the Project HAMMER over the Southern Ocean.
Since Grandyville’s death and the formation of the Old Church under Thomas Shoney, the United Church of Sempaurora has been completely dismantled.
