The Church of the New Sun

By:

Worship of the God may cleanse one's soul, but it is only by scourging the impurities from one's self that we might hope to cleanse the body. -Preludes, the Cants

Built upon the words of the Prophet, the Church sees to the spiritual and physical needs of the Pure.  Being the only organization of any significant power among the humans living under the Eternal Darkness its power reigns unchecked, however, at least in this case, absolute power has not corrupted absolutely, only moderately.  With missions found in every major community among the human 'lands' and roaming priests to see to the spiritual and earthly needs of those in the minor communities.

Orders:

Order of the Sun - traditional clergy + added duties of judge, census taker, and tax collector.  the cake job in the order is to get assigned to a fixed temple, to act as a local ruler/priest, however most jobs are of the wandering 'missionary' kind.  This is the primary branch of the Church, and what most people think of when talking about the church.  Higher levels are the bishops, ruling over larger regions, and the pope/caliph the head honcho for teh church.

Order of the Faithful - assassins witchhunters and spies, self references as teh knife of the prophet, never talked about, and feared to occupy every dark corner of the human world, and there are a lot of those, the Faithful are the inquistion of the Church, stamping out heresy where ever they find it, whether it be dogmatic heresy, with a single priest preaching that man isn't the author of his own destruction, or heresy of a viler sort, a sorceror among the populace. 

Wardens against the Dark - the militant arm of the church, this is the army of the faithful waging a constant crusade against the slaves of the dark mother.  Everyone is conscripted into the Wardens for a little bit in their life, to fight the hordes that threaten the existance of us all.

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
