Followers of Kameakias

By:

Brother, do not view me as an outsider. I am purely here to record what transpires and have no desire to step forth and interfere with the proceedings. It is my duty as an Apostle of Kameakias to record this so that the gods do not forget.

-Preist of Kameakias at the excecution of King Arboin for treason to his people.

The Followers of Kameakias - Watchers of All -

Kameakias is the oldest God of Hewdamia and represents the world that the other Gods squabble over. Although he is the oldest, his powers have faded with the eons of his never ending watch of the world. Although some of his powers have faded, his knowledge is unsurpassed by the other Gods, which in turn, gives him a strong hold over the world. Kameakias watches over everything that goes on with the mortals of Hewdamia and the other Gods and tries to keep everything balanced. Kameakias looks to the Olwynn as the mortals he favors the most.

Kameakias is questionably, the oldest God. He was floating in the darkness of space, before the two brothers took form. He grew in power and strength until he met with the two brothers and began shaping the world as it is known today. He used a lot of his strength and power in the shaping of the world, so he is no longer the strongest in power. He is the God of Knowledge however and knows more about the infinite universe than any other of the Gods. This makes him seem more powerful to the others. It is said that he knows everything that has transpired but is reluctant to even give out the tiniest bit of information to anyone, claiming that the knowledge is not ready for anyone to hear it. He is extremely protective of the world, considering that he is the world itself, and goes to great lengths to protect it from everything. He has few followers, but those that worship him are powerful in their beliefs and abilities.

Doctrine - Most of the followers of Kameakias are seekers of knowledge in all aspects. If it can be learned they will find a way to learn it. They have two different Covens within their religion, the Apostles and the Devoted. Both are protectors of knowledge in one form or another. Races with none-sentient or none-moral based cultures or ideals tend not to follow Kameakias as their views tend not to be the same.

Major Religious Centers -

Breakdown of the religious Order - There are only two factions to the Covens, the Apostles and the Devoted. Both get along very well and will assist anyone in need at any time. The balance between male and female shifts over time and is never equal or generous toward one or the other for very long. They tend to be organized very well, each knowing everyone’s part in the scheme of things.

Apostles are the few that have chosen to protect what is considered knowledge. They seek out anything that should be considered knowledge and do what they can to keep it safe and bring it back to the Devoted for safe keeping as well as cataloguing. The will fight to protect it if they see the need to necessary, which is pretty much anything to do with learning, reading, or knowledge. It could be a culture, or a tome. Whatever it is, they are willing to fight for it so it may be kept for future people to learn and pass on.

Devoted are a strange bunch. They have chosen to secrete themselves up in the temples and catalogue every scrap of information that they can into large tomes and scrolls so that people may learn from them. They create learning centers so anyone who is willing may enter and learn. Their works consist of anything possible; from the history of lost cultures to the spells of a Conocha and how to make them work.

The elder god of knowledge, I like the way that his Devoted gather up information and store it away. I can see them managing libraries, occasionally pilfering a book that they feel is not ready for the populace. Another idea would be rare members of the peerage, seneschals and elder scribes who are devoted to the god, writing elaborate codices of lore carefully written in codes.

I like this endless god of wisdom and universe.

My only comments about this is how is it manifested that his powers are waning?

An interesting idea for a god, though a rather lot is hinted at than detailed.

What abilities do his followers gain - they are mentioned as being powerful, but no details are given.

Nine times out of ten, it’s the undead that do the running.

Not strictly animal or vegetable, the Corpse bud is a peculiar individual that shares characteristics from multiple kingdoms and species. In appearance, all corpse buds bear a shape of a large rounded top bud divided into four lateral segments, and a much longer, narrower bottom bud, also divided into four segments. Between the two halves are a set of four radial limbs, rounded on top and flat on the bottom, covered with tiny serrated hooks facing towards the body. In overall size, it’s limbs reach as wide as a spread hand, with the body being as thick as a fist. It is as long as a human hand from top to bottom.

Internally, the top bud of the corpse bud contains a bacteria filled membrane that produces the hydrogen that the corpse bud uses to stay aloft, and a series of fungal gills for the dispersal of spores for reproduction. The lower half of the bud contains a number of fine filaments, as well as a sharp barbed stinger containing a powerful local anaesthesia.

The Corpse Bud mobilizes by inflating its top bud, and steers by rotating its arms rapidly about its body. The corpse bud ordinarily drifts with the wind, orienting towards the scent of recent decay and death. It preys on the recently dead, burrowing the lower bud into the victim, using the anaesthesia in case the victim is dying, and not truly deceased. Once embedded, it releases its filaments into the body, replacing the current nervous system. This gives it full animation of the body, and allows the corpse bud to direct it.

Corpse buds are not a malevolent species, being primarily concerned with breaking down the host body for food, and infecting the reproductive cycle with spores in order to mate with other corpse-bud bodies. To preserve the corpse for this purpose, Corpse buds will seek out dry locations to prevent bacteria from destroying the corpses. This often causes a large number of corpse buds to gather in a single location.

In culture, Corpse buds are used to repair broken spines or degenerative diseases, as the sentient mind will easily overcome the mind of the non-sentient corpse bud. Once infected by a corpse bud, however, removal is usually fatal, and the infected individual cannot reproduce, or risk infecting another. Thus, it is a technique often reserved for the elderly, or a last resort.

Necromancers and other dark sorcerers will often preserve the corpses of their victims magically, and infect them with corpse buds, creating traditional undead as well, so as to seed their lairs with undead both offensive and non, in order to throw their enemies off balance. They will also enslave the rudimentary minds of the corpse buds, and transform the docile things into a plague. There have also been accounts of magically transformed corpse buds with stronger minds and a taste for living flesh, but thus far all accounts are unproven rumors.
