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.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
