The Order of the Shepherd

The Ancient Brotherhood of Shepherds and Foresters is of course composed of men who are, metaphorically, shepherds and foresters. These roles are something all our people can and should do,but we recognize and formalize leadership with the orders. A man does not become a Shepherd by receiving the order, he received the order in recognition of the responsibility he has taken for his people.

The Order of the Shepherd is conferred in recognition of the guidance, counseling, care, encouragement and discipline he has provided to the people. Receiving the order provides no particular additional duties, but recognizes and grants authority and the power to confer the rites of the Shepherds.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
