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.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
