Also known as the Psychic Crusades, the Isbajutha (plural, from Khahonri s'ebejeh, to fight against with intention; singular isbajath), are the series of calculated wars that brought to an end the dominions of the great Chaos Rulers of the Middle Ages. The Isbajutha consist of the general psychic crusades demanded by the then-ruling Incarnandina, Miyanikhiya kath Agiya, and the lesser psychic crusades, each general Isbajath (psychic crusade) being designated with a number and each lesser isbajath designated with a non-numeric name.

Numerous other conflicts arose during the Isbajutha as the worship of chaos and the practice of chaos magic had become firmly entrenched throughout the Pallathantic Region. The Shenimite Incarnandists, their converts, and their allies in the Arathracian Church followed an organized program aimed at eliminating the chaos leaders with immense success.

The extirpation and exile of the most egregious leaders of the chaos movement fell even more swiftly on the Pallathantic than the speed with which chaos cults arose and flourished in the Middle Ages. Practitioners, priests, and cultist of chaos not slain or converted through the Isbajutha fled into hiding, sometimes with great irony, concealing themselves and their works in the very places of refuge where they had driven Incarnandists and others during the former rule of the princes of chaos.

General Isbajath

Only the acting Incarnandina could invoke the call for a general isbajath. Each such psychic crusade was numbered in chronological order. Incarnandist warriors were spiritually obligated to heed her summons and offer whatever powers that God had granted them in the service of the isbajath. The Incarnandina appointed the generals, often members of her own family, based on the council of retinue who consisted of powerful Incarnandist energists (psychics) often with the abilities of seership in the past, present, and sometimes future. The faithful who fell in the course of an isbajath were thought to enter into the presence of God and become companions of the energy of the Incarnandus. Each general isbajath was also associated with a specific zodiacal sign.

Vowed Isbajath

A vowed isbajath was promised by a powerful Incarnandist warrior or lawful warrior, but was not required by the current Incarnandina. There are numerous such vowed isbajutha and the list below only gives the greater vowed isbajutha which were part of the logistics of the over-all campaign against the Rulers of Chaos. The first of the vowed isbajutha was the Ascetics' Isbajath, vowed by Askymos Reclave.

Commanders

The Incarnandina with the advice of her council, chose the commanders of each general isbajath, the route of communications, the proprosed plan of attack, and exigency plans. She designated the harubeel and the th'ughiya of the force. The Incarnandinas of the Isbajutha are Miyanikhiya kath Agiya, Besheth kath Miyanikhiya, She'eseleth kath Besheth, Shadirya kath She'eseleth, and Lushabiya kath Shadirya.

Chronology of the Isbajutha

Consequences of the Isbajutha

The Isbajutha transformed the Greater Pallathantic region by destroying the regional power bases of the Chaos Rulers and establishing the basis for non-Chaos-based religions, such as Arathracianism and Incarnandism. The worship of the Old Religion was not eliminated, but sometimes seen as not sufficiently devoted to elimination of chaos cults. The success of the Isbajutha enabled the Great Tambrigaline Concordat with Oliblish, 2357, and the Accord of the Princes of Law, 2525. Today, over two centuries after the Isbajutha, the worship of Chaos is still proscribed in nations of the Greater Pallathantic.

Modern Interpretation

Today, the Isbajutha are generally viewed favorably by historians who regard the Isbajutha as the inevitable backlash against the extremism of chaos worship. However, some scholars have a neutral or even negative view of the Isbajutha. The Isbajutha are seen by them as the violent imposition of one religion's world view on foreign lands.

Notes

Copazousa Daughter of Chaos is not listed here as she perished through her own magical experimentation.
