I hate you with a burning passion, Zigz. After what you did to my eyes, I dont owe you anything. The only reason I’m handing over these documents, Zigz, is because my Superiors are pleased by your proposal.

The Adeptus Ministorum is also known as the Ecclesiarchy. They are responsible for cultivating acceptable interpretations of the Imperial Creed, and their members are responsible for their individual Imperial Cults.

The most popular Imperial Cult in Sector Calixis is the followers of Saint Drusus, also called the Drusians. A brief history lesson, as I’m sure you need it; Saint Drusus led the Angevian Crusade after it faltered, leading to the founding of Sector Calixis. His followers are even more militant and expansionist than more common or benign Imperial cults. As opposed to censers of incense and oils, they smell burned ozone of lasgun fire and promethium. As opposed to litanies of faith and servitude, they preach conquest and conflict. Instead of respectable guilded towers and stained glass, they build fortress-churches and erect military-esq statues. Quite a rowdy bunch, they almost didn’t get ordained, as a cult. If they weren’t ordained, it’d be the equivalent of being dubbed heretics by the Ecclesiarchy.

Knowing you, you’re asking because you’re about to raise hell. If you do, remember you owe me for getting you this info. One day, I’ll get my pound of flesh out of you, Zigz.

The Adeptus Ministorum, also called the Ecclesiarchy, is the worldly monolithic organization that spreads the official faith of the God Emperor, called the Imperial Creed. Historically, they are the first (or second) most influential group in the Imperium, beside the Adeptus Administratum. They even once fought a great war across the galaxy, millennia ago.

In Sector Calixis (and other new or nearby sectors), the major version of the Imperial Creed is the Cult of Saint Dreusus, or the Dreusians, as they’re called. They take up what they perceive is Saint Dreusus’ unfinished crusade, purging mutants, xenos, and heretics with zealous vigor.

It is most important to note that the Imperial Creed is the worship of the God Emperor of mankind. It preaches such virtues as hate, fury, ignorance, and obedience, while casting out understanding, charity, curiosity and rebellious attitudes. It is oppressive, bigoted, xenophobic, and fueled by equal parts hatred and fear.
