Order of the Southern Temple


Those of the Southern Territories were at a disadvantage at court. However, banded together, they become a mighty force for conservative and religious values.

Southers, those in the Southern Territories, are thought to be vastly more devout to the Faith than everyone else. If nothing else, they are more serious about their faith.

As the King brought together the council of knights and a central government for The Lands, many knights and lords of the Southern Territories, came to the cold north, to the King’s Seat. They found themselves at a disadvantage at court, being less political, seen as provincal (which is generally true), and followers of a more archaic version of the Chivalric code.

The Order started as a social group, as Knights, Lords, and their attendent families, were constantly meeting each other at temple prayers (which only the monks were observing until they came). A few more savy members utilized the “southern familiarity” as a political weapon, knowing that they could get their Souther friends to vote their way in the council. After a decade or so of the Southern Temple block holding exceptional power in council, there was a request for a New Order to be added to the rolls.

The Order takes in Souther Knights who show the proper adherence to The Old Code, Exhibition of Piety, and were born properly in the Southern Territories. These unfailing polite and chivalric knights have become quite popular with the populace.

However, there are issues comming. The Order, in general, is quite dismayed at the weakness and secularity of the remaining Knights of the realm. The Order is also against all the new reforms and compliances that the rest of The Land sees as necissary and socially proper. They do not like all the magic of the North as well. There will come a day that the Order of the Southern Temples will revolt against all this “moderness”. If they do not secede from The Land, they will have to strike against The King and install their own.

I like this. They are the "good guys", yet they are inflexible and have all the makings of the Religious Right. They are heroic, yet flawed. How realistic.

The only bad thing. It plays upon the American South stereotypes. Maybe that is good for some people, but not for me.

Though it illustrates the point, I think this suffers from a lack of subtlety.

Arune Spheres
Arune Spheres are hollow, blue reflective metallic spheres about 25 cm/ 10" in diameter (though some are larger). They are made of a thickish glass mirrored on the inside. When magical energies are flowed through the sphere, it produces a haunting tone, which can be varied by the type, intensity, and harmonics of energies passed through it. (It sounds like an electronic organ.) If multiple energy flows are generated, multiple sounds can be generated, some of which sound like mundane instruments. Masters of The Craft can replicate almost any sound in their memory with one. Though originally used as a training tools for those with The Power, it has been adapted to be a musical instrument. All it takes is someone with patience, medative training, and a touch of the Power, to use it. (Thus becoming the favorite instrument of anyone who was tested to the first level of the Craft, but failed to advance).
