The Code of Hamanu

Hamanau's Code is a strict set of laws that govern every aspect of life under the preview of Hamanu, Sorcerer-King of Urik.

By:Jon Sederqvist and Dave "Agantyr" Ries-Clark

Hamanu, King of the World, Lord of the Heavens and the Earth, Lion of Urik am I; my kingdom is unequaled among the lands; my will law; my reign supreme; my mercy infinitesimal. I have no equal among mortal and immortal alike; there is none who can challenge me, for my might is eternal and my power is omnipotent. By my will, whose foundations are laid so solidly as those of the heavens and the earth, this law is laid forth, so that none may have will against mine own, and that all may wor to the fulfillment of my undeniable will.

Hamanu, the Conqueror, called of Athas am I, making riches and increase. I made great the name of Urik and brought plenteous water to its inhabitants, heaped up the harests, and smote mine enemy with fire. My reach is as the sun, whose rays shed light over the lands of Urik and beyond. I am the King, obeyed by the four quarters of the world. Beloved of Urik, am I.
