Order of the Southern Temple

By:

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.

Mesnoi

       By: Murometz

The food that eats you back.

Creatures of nightmare, the thankfully rare Mesnoi have unique form and attributes. Only one Mesnoi at a time will ever be "encountered".

In appearance, a Mesnoi resembles a walnut-sized chunk of freshly-roasted red meat from some uncertain yet familiar, edible animal. The insidious creature camouflages itself quite appropriately whenever it can, by slowly making its way amidst feast tables and trays of roasted meats.

Once eaten by the unsuspecting, the Mesnoi sinks down to the stomach, reforming if chewed, and begins to lap up the gastric fluids, digestive juices, and bile that it craves, like a sponge.

The Mesnoi carrier will experience mild to severe stomach pains during this time.

After a few hours of this (this is the only time that the Mesnoi can be purged with magic, or other mundane means), the Mesnoi transforms into its true form inside its victim, that of a miniature, once more walnut-sized, pot-bellied, devil-horned, snake-tailed imp. This horrid little creature then begins to chew and eat its way out of the victim from the inside out with its tiny, razor-sharp teeth, like a rat forced to do so via torture.

The victim almost always dies a slow, agonizing death. That much is certain. The devilish imp then exits its victim and begins its seventy two hour existence of mischief and malevolence, until it once more turns back into a hunk of roasted meat with the movement capabilities of a snail.
