and These Are Our Churches

By:

We have your gods, but only the merest mention of worship, priests, and temples. This thread is the correction for that oversight

This Codex is related to two submissions:
“These are our Gods” and “One Deity Fantasy”

We have your gods, but only the merest mention of worship, priests, and temples. This thread is the correction for that oversight. I want you to list your priestly orders. How to the clerics or priests of your gods interact with each other, their deities, and other faiths. (i.e. make a group/ organization/ society listing for your religion).

And at no extra charge, you can add other religious posts here. I want you describe your temples, holy places, or cathedrals. I want you to list your holy holidays. Bring it on.

Keldorian Church aka Church of Creator By: MoonHunter ( Society/ Organizations ) Religious - World Wide

Looking back on things, Keldor was the most unlikely of prophets. While charismatic, he was short, of middling birth, a half breed, and of a questionable profession. Yet his words have change the very fabric of society and created a lasting peace.

The Church of the Merciful and Glorious Ion By: Alec_Shadowkin ( Society/ Organizations ) Religious - Country/ State

The Vicean Church By: MoonHunter ( Society/ Organizations ) Religious - World Wide

The Vicean Church is one that expresses the mysteries of existence and explains the process of life and death and life beyond. While other churches have "aims" and "goals", the Vicean church focuses on the soul and faith of its members (and all peoples) and the health of the community and its church. After a few religious conflicts or magical pogroms, the Vicean Church becomes very popular with people and governments, as they avoid such things.

It should be a sin for this to have gone so long without anyone commenting on this. The vote I gave is for the entire codex as a whole not the beginning submission which was lacking a lot. But some times the introduction to greater things are not so grand. This is a perfect idea and I will try to put some of my work up here to contribute to it.

That is what it is here for. It was the best way to go pre-free text.

       By: Alexia

A group of individuals* gather up and search for, "The rod of Lordly Might." Here's the catch, no just any individual is welcomed. There will be a meeting on sundown* in an old bar. As it is, a war is going on between the Eastern Front, and the Western Front. The bar/tavern is in the middle of both lands.
On the same night of the meeting, there's another meeting with the Red Rose (Eastern) and the Black rose (Western).

Once on the mission, there will be other individuals met and given information... there will not be an easy destiny, but nonetheless and adventure to remember.

***
I used INDIVIDUALS for the fact that you can be any species (just keep away from the elemental and supernatural creatures.). Here are some suggestions: Vampire/ress, Adhiel (Elf), Half-Adhiel (Half-Elf), Orc, Human, Half-Human...
Please do not be: Orc, Troll, Frost/Forest/Urban/Dessert Monsters, Giants, and Titans. Note that you can still be one, just preferably not one.

I used SUNDOWN for a realistic reason (Vamps, Giants, and others meet at night). You don't meet someone who works for the Eastern/Western Kings during the day. I expect some drunks, bar fights, and bloodshed in the story. Mild or no Language is acceptable (unless unexceptable by the MODS).
