Followers of Sceleris

By:

You sicken me, son of a false God. Your faith is boundless, yet your power is limited. You serve a weak God and yo ushall soon see the err of your ways. When we rally forth and wipe the slate clean of your pathetic church your crys of injustice will not be heard. Bow before your oppressor.

-Souka Apostle of Sceleris

The Followers of Sceleris also known as the Watchers of Decay -

Sceleris tries to undermine the world with her sandy and dry clutches. Ruining all that is lush and full of life and tries to drain all of life and make everything parched and dead like her sandy waste. The only love that Sceleris has is that for her people of the desert, the Lemiean’s, who she fashioned after her own image. She respects their refusal to perish under her constant unforgiving hand and views them as the only worthy race for Hewdamia. Sceleris looks to the Lemiean’s as the mortals she favors the most.

Sceleris is the Goddess of lies and confusion, a trickster among the Gods, and a vengeful enemy. She was the last of the lesser Gods to be raised. She is a constant annoyance to all. She uses her powers to drain the life of the world that Adiuvo loves so much; using lies, tricks, and mortals to do her deeds for her. She made a pack with Sethalis to raise her to God status, what that pack is only they know. But she has taken her new status and power and has taken a personal choice to make Adiuvo fall.

Doctrine - Most of Her followers are rogues, brigands, or those wanting to get things for nothing. Also known as the God of Thieves, She is a trickster and Her word can never be trusted for long. She has Her own agenda when dealing with followers. She seems overly kind at times, but malicious when angered. Those that follower Her tend to prey on weaker and easier mortals, being ruthless as well as rebels toward the system of authority.

Major Religious Centers -

Breakdown of the religious Order - While they are followers of a trickster, liar, and mischievous God, they are fairly organized. Some groups within the religion are as dedicated to following Sceleris as anyone would follow any other God. They only have two functioning Orders in their religion.

Apostles are the fanatics of the followers. They tend to go to the extremes to make their religion known. They take things literal most of the time and are quick to anger and throw the wrath of their God.

Devoted are the priestlier Order of Sceleris’s followers. They worship her with strong devotion and have no tolerance for blasphemers. They understand the other religions and therefore do not hinder their beliefs, but anyone talking wrong toward their Goddess is normally punished by death.

Another nice god! I especially like how, while she is decidedly bad, she's not pure evil, and has a lighter side to her than most other negative deities. Again, I like the name and ranks of followers, and the addition of a personality is nice as well.

A Goddess of Decay who values her worshippers.

There is not a watchers coven, and no mention of why there wouldnt be one. I do like the idea of a goddess of decay who isnt completely nihilistic, and does value something, especially her worshippers. On a side note, Sceleris and Sethalis would have made a pact, not a pack.

Would they be a seperate organization, culturally distinct? Do others worship her?

A good religion for populating lost temples where the reception will not be welcoming...

       By: Ancient Gamer

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
