||A New Issuance of the Covenant||The Covenant, an instrument first promulgated by the Prince of Modan in 1663 AN, was the means by which the very souls of the citizens of the Unified Governorates of Benacia were bound by blood and sacred oaths to the standards of the Black Legions. Following tradition, the Covenant is re-issued at the commencement of each new reign, locally upon the conquest of a new province, or else nationally upon the occasion of the commencement of a new tribulation. The conflict with the new empire of Francia and the level of mobilisation necessitated for Benacia to confront the northern interlopers constituted such an occasion whereupon the Command Executive felt justified in rededicating the people to the holy cause of Benacian unity and final victory. The Directive was notable both on account of maintaining the obligations towards the old Imperial Cult thus preserving, however notionally, the vestigial standing of the Kaisership, and also for discretely removing the last remnant of the once voluminous official strictures concerning the state-mandated persecution of Ketherism - thereby marking the definitive conclusion of the long process of detente with Kalgachia which had begun with the Slavegate Convention.|
