Followers of the Straight Path

The followers of the Straight Path are a relatively new church. They are an offshoot of the Novemites and worship Ghorital exclusively. There are many cults and orders within the Church of Orthodoxy which only worship one of the gods or even a singular Saint or Angel. The Straight Path takes this to the extreme, however, and has completely separated itself from the governance of the Novemites. 

Despite their singular devotion and independence the "Pathers" have not been exterminated for heresy, as they still recognize the divinity of the other gods. Likewise, the sheer size of the relatively new movement makes them somewhat immune from any thought of religiously motivated termination. The God's have forbidden the holy crusades of yore, and have utterly destroyed any religious order in the past that attempted a holy war.

The Followers of the Straight Path are unique in requiring all their members to adhere to a severe code of conduct. Most other religious orders only require this of their clergy, and leave morality to the governments. Some nations see this as a threat to their sovereignty, which has resulted in Straight Path leaders being imprisoned or even killed. However, most governments treat them as a nuisance and allow them to follow their own hearts as long as they don't break any laws.
