- "Así como la fe gana las guerras, las guerras son alimentadas por la fe. Bienaventurados los que matan a los xenos, herejes y mutantes, pues ellos heredarán la galaxia."
- —Hermana Isha
La Fe, como poder manifiesto, es una habilidad que solo los más fieles de entre los siervos del Emperador podrán contemplar, mucho menos controlar. Cómo y por qué funciona, y por qué ciertos individuos o grupos de individuos la muestran es aún más incomprensible que los poderes de los Psíquicos o los dones de los Navegantes. De hecho, sólo hay una pequeña fracción del Imperio que sepa de su existencia. Incluso dentro de las filas de la Eclesiarquía, la mayoría de los sacerdotes viven toda su vida aceptando la fe sin haber visto jamás milagros tan maravillosos como los que pueden realizar aquellos que son tocados por lo divino. Si hubiera una excepción, serían la Adepta Sororitas, las Esposas del Emperador, mujeres bendecidas con una conexión especial con la luz y divinidad del señor de la humanidad. Dentro de las filas de esta hermandad, las sororitas viven en una total dedicación al Dios-Emperador, creadas y guiadas por sus enseñanzas. Tal vez sea esta devoción total o su especial conexión con lo divino lo que les otorga los dones de la Fe, o tal vez es su papel como el brazo militante de la iglesia y su deber de protegerla de sus enemigos. Comoquiera que fuese, la Adepta Sororitas comparte un vínculo especial con el Dios-Emperador y más que cualquier otro grupo dentro de su dominio puede canalizar el poder de la Fe, tal vez demostrando su favor a sus ojos.
Aunque la Fe escoge sus recipientes, y estos pueden dirigirla a las órdenes del Emperador, una cosa es cierta: la fe no puede ser forzada, cazada o capturada; debe ser encontrada por una mente pura, un corazón justo y una completa devoción a El Dios-Emperador.
Tipos de poderes de la fe
Hay tres tipos de Fe que reflejan los diferentes aspectos del Dios-Emperador y las diferentes maneras en que sus siervos interpretan su voluntad. Los tres tipos de Fe son:
- El Signo del Emperador: Los fieles seguidores del Credo Imperial adoran y se deleitan con el simbolismo del Emperador y las marcas y runas sagradas asociadas con él. A todo lo largo del Imperio los fieles se saludan con gestos sagrados como el signo del Áquila, o marcan sus hogares con signos y salvaguardias, como imágenes del Trono Dorado, para repeler el mal. Sin embargo, para aquellos que son bendecidos con la Fe Pura, estos gestos, símbolos y signos son algo más que meros rituales y cada uno puede convertirse en un foco para su devoción fanática y un vínculo con el Dios-Emperador. Con estos símbolos, un discípulo fiel del Emperador puede rechazar a los engendros de la Disformidad, protegerse a sí mismo o a otros del daño e incluso descubrir las verdaderas intenciones de una persona bañándola en la imperturbable luz del Emperador.
- La Misericordia del Emperador: Se cuenta que el Emperador puede mostrar misericordia tanto como ira. Para sus seguidores, la Fe puede reparar heridas, curar mentes y fortalecer las almas contra las depradaciones y la decadencia de la Disformidad. Sin embargo, la misericordia no siempre es amable y amable, y aquellos que imploran al señor de la Humanidad en busca de clemencia o respiro pueden encontrar sus servicios sangrientos y letales. Los siervos de la Eclesiarquía aceptan esto como un mandato y transmiten tales misericordias a su rebaño como las justas recompensas de un servicio de por vida al Dios-Emperador; un servicio que sólo puede terminar en la muerte.
- La Ira del Emperador: Como saben todos los que profesan el Credo Imperial, el Emperador es un dios vengativo, muy propenso a herir y no muy propenso a perdonar a aquellos que infrinjan la fe. Aquellos que se alejan de las enseñanzas del Dios-Emperador, o han cometido pecado contra su santa palabra son propensos a encontrar el tormento y la destrucción a manos de sus fieles. De hecho, es parte del Culto al Emperador el que todos los que juran lealtad al Trono Dorado no permitan a los incrédulos, herejes y pecadores vivir dentro de su Imperio, buscarlos allí donde se escondan y purificarlos con llamas. La ira del emperador nunca escasea y sus sirvientes están dispuestos a servirla a sus enemigos.
El Signo del Emperador
Burden of guilt
The God-Emperor suffers not the lies of his enemies and in His presence even the darkest of hearts will feel the weight of their falsehood heavy on their shoulders. With this the faithful projects the Emperor’s disdain for deceit so that all who look upon him or hear his voice will feel their own secrets gnawing at their conscience like a frenzied rat hungry for escape.
To stand in the presence of a truly faithful disciple of the God-Emperor is to bath in their confi dence and conviction. With this the faithful emanates an aura of pure faith and devotion to the Emperor that others nearby can experience. This aura will banish fear and doubt as well as steeling hearts and minds against the evils of the warp, giving the followers of the Creed the strength to stand against the foulest of foes.
Look not upon the daemon, the heretic or the unclean enemies of the Emperor; it is through your eyes the foes of purity will lay siege to your soul. This allows the faithful to blind himself or others to creatures and objects which would rend his mind or tarnish his soul. Unfortunately for the faithful, that which he cannot see can still tear his throat out...
Light of the Emperor
Open your mind, body, and soul to the light of the Emperor and let it wash away your fear; in His radiance you are protected and none can stand against your sword. This fills the mind of the faithful and his allies with a powerful calm, preventing even the most horrific of things from unsettling them and allowing them to fi ght the foes of the Emperor with detached brutality.
Spirit of the Martyr
It is through sacrifi ce and blood that we shall prove our devotion to the Emperor; we offer up our lives willingly in His service so that He may judge us worthy in His light. With this the faithful infuses himself and his allies with the spirit of the holy martyr, strengthening life and limb against hardship so that he might go on serving the Master of ankind where others fail.
The wicked and the corrupt will rot in the sight of the Emperor’s faithful, His divine light turning their dark hearts to acid in their chests and burning them with their sin. This turns a creature’s corruption inwards, wracking its body with pain and burning its fl esh as its evil is refl ected back upon it by the blessed presence of the Emperor’s chosen.
Fear is the currency of the alien, the heretic, and the mutant; through the strength of the God-Emperor and the will of the just, the faithful will repay such coin in kind. This allows the faithful to turn fear back upon his foes and break their minds as the minds of his fl ock may be broken, visiting upon them the darkest darkness from within their own twisted hearts.
Cast out the daemon, the unclean, and the spawn of the warp; from His holy graces you are delivered into the light and from the darkness of the pit your foes will return. This allows the faithful to force a creature of the warp, such as a daemon, to retreat and can, with a suitable strength of will, keep it at bay, powerless to approach the favoured servant of the God-Emperor.
Just as the sign of the Emperor is abhorrent to the daemon, so too are the marks of his faith; these sacred runes are the shackles of the just and the chains of the true, binding and fettering the warp spawn within a prison of the Materium. This allows the faithful to trap a daemon by blessing a specially constructed protective circle with potent symbols and the divine power of the God-Emperor.
From His eyes the sight of clarity, from His mouth the words of truth and from His heart the light of the just which shines across the stars into the darkest corners of His domain. This summons a divine light from within the faithful which causes him to glow with a pearly white radiance, dispelling darkness and making him hard to look upon, especially by the corrupt or the servants of the warp.
With His mark you are protected, with His sign you shield yourself against the dark and with His symbol you lock your soul against the evil of the warp. This allows the faithful to place a divine mark upon himself or one of his allies, protecting them from psychic attack, possession and other daemonic tampering.
Seal of Purity
And the enemies of the God-Emperor looked upon His seal and despaired, for in its shadow they were powerless and could only cower before His might. With this the faithful can inscribe a potent and sacred version of the Aquila upon the ground and bless it with the divine power of the God-Emperor himself so that his foes might recoil from its presence and be unable to cross its outstretched wings.
La Misericordia del Emperador
The child of the man holds within him the seed of the God-Emperor’s divinity, which may be nurtured and grown only through the power of true faith. With this the faithful imparts a fragment of his divine connection to the GodEmperor onto his allies, blessing them with a powerful Grace to shape their destiny and protect them from harm.
Only through pain and blood is the body made pure, its fragile fl esh made whole through the sacrifi ce of the faithful and the tears of the willing martyr. With this the faithful can heal the injured, knitting together bloody flesh and mending splintered bones. Such a great gift comes with a heavy price however, and for every cut or rend the faithful restores he will himself suffer a similar wound.
In the service of the God-Emperor a man will endure as the Imperium has endured and he will stand unbowed and unbroken as has the Imperium of Mankind. With this the faithful imparts the ageless endurance of the Imperium, realm of the God-Emperor, into his allies, allowing them to press on even when their bodies grow tired or their limbs weary—motivated by visions of the glory of the Emperor’s domain which has lasted millennia.
The strong are bolstered by the word of the God-Emperor and the prayers of the faithful. With an open heart and a vengeful mind the songs of the just will lift him up and allow him to soar like a holy warrior striking fear into the souls of the unclean. With this the faithful may pray for one of his allies, granting them the strength and spirit to overcome their wounds, cast off their mortal shackles, and push on to the very edge of death itself.
Blessed are the hands of the healer that they may restore the mangled limbs of the faithful and send them back into the fray. This allows the faithful to enhance his healing abilities and dispel the effects of fatigue upon his allies, restoring their vigour and allowing them to continue to bring death and ruin to the God-Emperor’s foes.
Potent is the power of the God-Emperor that even the greatest of injuries and the most grievous of wounds are as nothing when bathed in his divine light. This allows the faithful to perform a miraculous healing and mend broken limbs, torn flesh, and missing ears. Only the faithful may benefit from this miracle however and they seldom survive completely intact.
Clear your mind of fear, madness and decay; in the service of the God-Emperor no man need carry humanity’s burden alone—we are the teeming masses of humanity and rightful masters of the galaxy. This allows the faithful to wash away recent horrors and reinforce a sense of purpose and might in his followers focusing their minds to the single task of service to the Emperor.
Your body is a temple to the God-Emperor, your blood and bones your sacrament, your soul a symbol of your faith; let none foul your temple lest your faith be likewise fouled. This allows the faithful to purge his soul of some of the taint of the warp, casting off a portion of its dark power before it has time to take root and begin a slow decay of spirit.
Free the mind from doubt, fear, and darkness! Look to the light of the God-Emperor and let his divine presence remind you of your purpose—you are the faithful of the Imperium and you cannot falter in the face of its foes. This allows the faithful to free his mind, or that of his allies from the grip of fear or the insidious powers of the psyker, restoring them to clarity and control.
No rest for the Faithful
Only in death does duty to the God-Emperor end, and only when faith is extinguished will you truly die. With this the faithful push themselves beyond the frailties of their mortal frames, shaking off wounds, casting aside injury and ignoring pain so that they may serve His will until the end. Such a divine drive has its price and once the faithful’s task is done his body may never recover.
And he rose anew, as if lifted from the grave by the hand of the God-Emperor, restored by divine providence and ready once again to face the foes of mankind. With this the faithful channels the power of his faith into a fallen comrade, filling their broken frame with life and purpose and tasking them once more with carrying on the Emperor’s holy crusade.
La Ira del Emperador
Wrath of the Righteous
May the God-Emperor guide my hand toward the foes that I might rend him with my righteous indignation, breaking his bones, spilling his blood and piercing his flesh with my faith. This ability focuses the faithful’s Emperor-born rage into his attacks, channelling His divine anger and wrath into each stroke of his blade as he fells the heretics and the unbelievers.
Hand of the Emperor
And lo, the hand of the God-Emperor came down upon the heretic, the mutant, and the alien, crushing them beneath its fury and revealing to them the folly of their ways. This ability charges the faithful with a potent strength, binding his frame in divine energies and strengthening bone and muscle so that he might better crush his foes with mighty blows and unforgiving brutality.
Let the Emperor guide my aim, let his eye be my eye as I fire my weapon at the foes of the Imperium so that my shots might strike true and send my enemies to their eternal rest. This ability guides the aim of the faithful so that they sense more than see when to fire at the enemy, their shots striking home over extreme distances or even in the pitch-dark, guided to their targets by the will of the God-Emperor and the power of their faith.
Your love for the God-Emperor will know no bounds, his glory will fill your heart to bursting and you will run and scream with joy at the sound of His name; filled with his divine light you are a tireless soldier of the Imperium and a holy instrument of the faith. This ability infuses the faithful with a powerful passion and energy, allowing him and his allies to move in a frenzy of righteous speed so that they might better reach their foes and rend them to pieces.
Flames of Faith
Holy is the flame of the Emperor, that it might burn away the evil of his enemies and cast those spawned from the warp back into their places of freezing darkness and unending night. This Talent places a powerful blessing on the fires of the faith0ul making them burn more fiercely and making them especially deadly to daemons and creatures of the Inmaterium.
Never forget the righteousness of our cause, for to waver in our conviction to the God-Emperor is to invite his foes into our heart and infect us with their filth. With this the faithful and his allies fill themselves with a divine madness and rage against their foes, flying into a righteous frenzy and striking out at the unbelievers and the heretics like a bottomless pit of anger.
Might of the Emperor
Blessed are the faithful, for they have within them the power of the God-Emperor and are transformed by it into His divine vessel and tool of vengeance. This allows the faithful to become a vessel for the Emperor’s power increasing his strength and stamina but at the same time overcoming him with a religious mania which can blind him to reason and make his words unintelligible to the ears of common men.
The Unforgiving Blade
Blessed are the blades that smite the daemon, the witch, and the psyker. With divine steel the children of the warp are cut deep, and their blood spilled as a sign of their betrayal of the purity of humanity. This ability allows the faithful to bless a blade to deal horrific damage to those who are either touched by the warp or call upon its powers as part of their cursed existence.
Even the lightest of touches by those blessed by the divine God-Emperor are as acid to the flesh of the corrupt, the pure light of the faithful’s soul burning into the vile darkness of the heretic’s mind and causing him to cry out in pain and despair. This allows the faithful to bring terrible pain and crippling agony to those tainted by the warp, either diminishing their power (in the case of daemons) or causing them debilitating torment (in the case of psykers and others tainted by the warp).
Together the faithful are unstoppable. We are the teeming billions of humanity, the God-Emperor’s faithful and his devoted servants. Our power lives on the lips of the devout and spreads like fire through the air on the strength of our words. This ability starts a chain of religious hysteria which spreads through the minds of citizens and can turn a crowd of sullen hab workers into a raging mob of religious zealots ready to tear the throats from the unrighteous.
You are the centre of the God-Emperor’s might, you are his focus upon the world of men and through your will and your soul flows his burning light. This ability allows the faithful to unleash a fearsome soul storm in a flash of blinding light and burning flame, cleansing an area of the warp, its spawn, and those touched by its corrupting influence.
