The Divine Synod - Recruit Quest
« on: March 05, 2013, 10:38:00 AM »
Behold, a pronouncement from the seat of authority! Henceforth the Divine Synod shall lay hands on those who prove themselves worthy and be consecrated into the sacred order!

The Divine Synod is the guild for all things religious: gods and devils, myths and doctrines, sacred orders and secret cults. The sacerdotal members of its order seek to further understanding of the divine by creating  new religious plots, settings, and submissions.

The patriarchs have issued a holy quest for those who seek the laying of hands. Go forth for righteousness and lay claim to the power of the gods!

Recruit quest: Faiths of the Founders

You must craft a new creed for the faithful to follow.
  • Write 1 sub in the "Societies - Religious" or "Systems - Divine/Spirit" category outlining the belief system, pantheon, or hierarchy.
  • Write 1 sub in the "NPC - Religious" category associated with the new religion.
  • Write 1 sub in the "Items" category that features some artifact relating to the faith.
These subs must have a 3.25 or higher average rating and include "Divine Synod" in the freetext.

As a show of ecumenism, you must vote on three subs in any of the following categories
  • NPC - Religious
  • NPC - Mystical
  • Societies - Religious
  • Societies - Mystical
  • Systems - Divine/Spirit
  • Systems - Mystical
You must also upvote a comment in 5 subs of these categories.

Upon successful completion of these tasks, you will be awarded the following:
  • Title of "Acolyte"
  • An addendum to your handle reflecting your newfound faith (e.g., "Follower of Othamm", "Faithful of Dalraaen", etc.)
  • A 3 or higher in Intelligence or Charisma
  • The Synodic emblem onto your signature

Finally, a guild that caters to a megalomaniac determination to rule the world through faith and fear.  Count me in.

This guild should marry in well with my current necromantic cult status.

Request for clarification: must all three subs pertain to the same religion?  I'm having trouble coming up with a "sacred artifact" for a Matrix-themed cult.  XD

Good question!

Maybe you could make the item the 'mythical off-switch' which is the focus of one of the wierder guilds in the players cult, who believe that the purpose of the game is to find the object which you can activate which finishes the game, freeing you. As such, these cultists are great explorers, diving into caverns and under the ocean. perhaps James Cameron is secretly a part of the cult and he went deep under the ocean in his submarine thingy to search for it! He secretly funds all sorts of expeditions :p

Ahhh, so a legendary item that may or may not exist?  That's actually a really cool concept, Shadow.  You have just catapulted me over my block, thanks!

That was the intent, yes: three subs crafted into a single coherent faith.

I thought about giving you a dispensation, but since Shadoweagle inspired you, I am spared from breaking the rules. The system works!

How about this?

Not sure how to make it feel religious without being religious so used a phoenix and a holy grail thinking we could get away with that.

I hereby pledge myself to The Divine Synod.
Chosen of Aktagarti – Divine Synod Guild – Level 1
Might: 2 | Agility: 3 | Wits: 4 | Charm: 3 | Spirit: 4 | Power: 2

The old man, grey-haired, braid hanging down.
He is clothed in faded brown robes.
His craggy face is turned up, bathed in moonlight;
He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.
