I like it. This is a type of submission that every religion should have detailed in some form or another. After all, every religion has it's Larach, it's C.S. Lewis, it's whomever, that influential thinker that changed the way things are considered and thought about. Heck, if you get down to it, Jesus was the 'Larach' of Judaism. An interesting thought.

A great religion post. Whether a polytheistic or monotheistic world, it can be inserted into both without much trouble. I like the implicit connection to another religion - as it is not overly specified what the 'brother' is like, this way both religions can specialise on different worshippers and their needs, and can stay allies. Also offers plenty place for legends of the godly siblings.
I like it, especially the way that Ruth is presented as being a sibling to a god, but not quite one herself. The post does need to have funny characters removed, mainly the / marks where all of the apostrophes are. Go to Comment
Good romp through some religious history that can help and cleric/priest's background. Definately a good hook with the mysterious Temple of Akhtanpet that would be fun to use and which would make this historical treatise on the saint very meaningful to the players. Go to Comment
An insidious creature, most likely somehow "related" to trappers and lurkers, the Dead Leaves (for no other name exists as of yet for this foul thing), hibernates for three of the four year's seasons, deep underground. Its active time is Autumn, when trees shed their leaves, depositing colorful carpets across the ground. The terror then emerges and blends in with the surrounding leaves, perfectly camouflaged, waiting patiently for unsuspecting victims. In appearance it resembles nothing more than a ten foot square, six inch thick, layer of bright yellow, orange, and red leaves. The only hint that someone is walking on top of it, comes in the form of an unusual amplified sound of leaves crunching underfoot. Too late usually, the victims notice this additional "crunch". The Dead Leaves will then swirl and "rise" up to smother and suffocate the victim, like a colorful, malevolent, boa constrictor.
Fire, as can be imagined, is particularly effective against this creature, but one has to *know* it's there before putting it to the torch. And there's the rub. The creature is impossible to "identify" in a large patch of fallen leaves by eyesight alone.
