Be Good Common Terms


, , , ,

Below is a list of a few of the most common terms used in Be Good. It is my aim that this list will help you to familiarize yourself with the customs and ways of the Flamelands, and thus enrich your reading experience.

  • Church of the Priarch: one of the main religions in the Flamelands, it worships Priarch, the Eternal Flame.
  • Flamelands, The: A sub-confident sized landmass upon which our story takes place. Home to a variety of nations, peoples and cultures.
  • Holy Order: 10000 tasks written by Prophet Imran, used to enforce his will across the centuries. Upon the completion of their training, every Prion receives one.
  • Prion: An ordained holy man (or woman) of the Church of the Priarch. In addition to completing their Holy Orders they also minister to the people of Vuria, providing guidance and sermons every ten days.
  • Prophet Imran: The founder of the Church of the Priarch. Originally a simple fisherman, after experiencing a traumatic event he gained the ability to see the future.
  • Pyre: The capital city of Vuria. Located in the middle of a large plateau bordered on all sides by deep fissures in the earth.
  • Slumtown: A shantytown outside Pyre, home to the lost and broken things of society.
  • Vuria: A kingdom at the center of the Flamelands. It is ruled by King Silas Fyrnorn. The only accepted religion is the Church of the Priarch.

These are just a few of the terms that Be Good utilizes. I am planning on adding a complete glossary to the site when I publish Be Good, so look forward to that!
