Followers of Sceleris

By:

You sicken me, son of a false God. Your faith is boundless, yet your power is limited. You serve a weak God and yo ushall soon see the err of your ways. When we rally forth and wipe the slate clean of your pathetic church your crys of injustice will not be heard. Bow before your oppressor.

-Souka Apostle of Sceleris

The Followers of Sceleris also known as the Watchers of Decay -

Sceleris tries to undermine the world with her sandy and dry clutches. Ruining all that is lush and full of life and tries to drain all of life and make everything parched and dead like her sandy waste. The only love that Sceleris has is that for her people of the desert, the Lemiean’s, who she fashioned after her own image. She respects their refusal to perish under her constant unforgiving hand and views them as the only worthy race for Hewdamia. Sceleris looks to the Lemiean’s as the mortals she favors the most.

Sceleris is the Goddess of lies and confusion, a trickster among the Gods, and a vengeful enemy. She was the last of the lesser Gods to be raised. She is a constant annoyance to all. She uses her powers to drain the life of the world that Adiuvo loves so much; using lies, tricks, and mortals to do her deeds for her. She made a pack with Sethalis to raise her to God status, what that pack is only they know. But she has taken her new status and power and has taken a personal choice to make Adiuvo fall.

Doctrine - Most of Her followers are rogues, brigands, or those wanting to get things for nothing. Also known as the God of Thieves, She is a trickster and Her word can never be trusted for long. She has Her own agenda when dealing with followers. She seems overly kind at times, but malicious when angered. Those that follower Her tend to prey on weaker and easier mortals, being ruthless as well as rebels toward the system of authority.

Major Religious Centers -

Breakdown of the religious Order - While they are followers of a trickster, liar, and mischievous God, they are fairly organized. Some groups within the religion are as dedicated to following Sceleris as anyone would follow any other God. They only have two functioning Orders in their religion.

Apostles are the fanatics of the followers. They tend to go to the extremes to make their religion known. They take things literal most of the time and are quick to anger and throw the wrath of their God.

Devoted are the priestlier Order of Sceleris’s followers. They worship her with strong devotion and have no tolerance for blasphemers. They understand the other religions and therefore do not hinder their beliefs, but anyone talking wrong toward their Goddess is normally punished by death.

Another nice god! I especially like how, while she is decidedly bad, she's not pure evil, and has a lighter side to her than most other negative deities. Again, I like the name and ranks of followers, and the addition of a personality is nice as well.

A Goddess of Decay who values her worshippers.

There is not a watchers coven, and no mention of why there wouldnt be one. I do like the idea of a goddess of decay who isnt completely nihilistic, and does value something, especially her worshippers. On a side note, Sceleris and Sethalis would have made a pact, not a pack.

Would they be a seperate organization, culturally distinct? Do others worship her?

A good religion for populating lost temples where the reception will not be welcoming...

Castoria, Land of Shattered Stars

       By: Veretrix

Castoria was once a thriving and prosperous nation, a rich trade center for the surrounding lands. This all changed when, on one fateful night nearly a century ago, the Mist of Eternity rolled in and surrounded the land, obscuring more of the outside world as days and nights passed.

By the time the Mist blocked out the sun, a new light shone during what was assumed to be daytime: The Starpoint Spire, a mysterious place atop Castoria's highest peak in the northern-central region. Some say that there is some sort of building atop the mountain shining the dim "sunlight" onto the land, but it is only ever too bright or too dark to fully make out any structure, not to mention the mountain's immense height.

Not a month after the Spire's light lit up, the stars fell. Flaming rocks and debris from far-flung edges of space plummeted downward onto the eastern region of Castoria. Once the shower subsided, a strange energy from within the fallen stars transformed the eastern lands in what are now known as The Voidwastes, a barren gray land littered with craters and strange alien creatures (these can vary, but I had Pathfinder's Akatas in mind).

To the south, strange mechanism of eldritch origin are again at work after aeons of rest in the Ruins of Kchuthngnl, an ancient city of non-human creation that is estimated by scholars to be no less that five millennia old.

To the west, the once peaceful and serene forest, now known as The Plagued Woods, has been experiencing corruptions of the wildlife and humanoids living there. Some humans have reported creatures that appear not unlike a halfling, except that they can open their mouths to massive proportions to swallow creatures the size of an ogre.

When adventurers and citizens alike try to make an escape from Castoria, they are never seen again, and it is utterly unknown whether they found hopeful sanctuary or agonizing death withing the Mist's depths.

What is unknown to all residents of Castoria is that all of these events occurred because of the actions of a secret but powerful cult loyal to the Elder Gods who call the space between the planes their abhorrent home. The cult still lives on, larger than ever, and their plan is for the alien horrors to incubate and thrive within the dome of mist that now envelops Castoria, so that when the Elder Gods return as the cult's prophecy foretells, they will have an army of blasphemous creation at their disposal that they will use to make war with and enslave the denizens of the Material Plane.
