    Intro to Power and balance of the Universe
    The Great Book of the Universe
    According to Blargh the Intelligent

    The universe as we know it is governed by the forces of good and evil, order and chaos. From the mixture of these forces arose the various societies of the Universe. Each claiming for its own, a particular adherence to the forces of good and evil, order and chaos. Depending on which force of balance the society believes to be the stronger, they claim that force to be the Yang which governs their way of life, to be offset by a weaker balancing force that they claim to be their Yin.

Your ability to uphold the Yin and Yang beliefs of your society is reflected in your power, the power that determines your political position within your society. When you, intentionally or inadvertently, destroy one who adheres to your society's beliefs, or when you befriend, biblically or platonically, an enemy to your society's beliefs, your power will reflect the negative effects. For each of your society's adherents you befriend and protect, or for each of your society's enemies you destroy, your power will reflect the positive effects. Your lodge master will be able to tell you what your society's yin and yang adherences are. At the same time, the lodge master will be able to tell you how your power is divided between the yin and yang of your society.

    Understand this well, and seek ye those who defies your societal adherences, be it in their chosen Yin or their chosen Yang.
