Priests of Geryon

By:

Priests of the god of agriculture.

Many a village is blessed by the presence of a priest of Geryon. Easily the most numerous church in the lands, it calmly enjoys its status, and doesn’t ask for more. They stand for the community, and for the arts that bring people together. Currently they have a strong focus on agriculture.

A priest will be knowledgeable of many crafts, particularly those of "his" community. In smaller villages they will grow their own crops; in larger ones, where more spiritual work has to be performed, they would merely attend a small garden. The cemeteries they care for as gardens, but of a different kind: as a place to remember for the living, and a place to calming down for the dead. Growing anything edible in these gardens is considered wrong; but some healing plants that thrive in this environment are welcome and used.

Signs
If there is something as a symbol of their office, it may be the Pildun Bowl, a tool to measure grain, and perform rituals like the Autumn Sharing, or a ceremonial blessing of worthy people, by pouring grain on their head.

While not directly a symbol, fire in general, and open fire in particular are used by the priesthood, mentioned often in their holy texts, and even a part of their powers - all due to their religion’s history.

       By: Incarnadine

Stormbound, the ship rolls hard over to once side. All that is not strapped down is tossed violently overboard in a splash of freezing water.

There, on the horizon- a tower. Squat, it stands alone on a tiny island. However, it's the only land in sight, and any more of this ferocious storm will crush the boat to splinters.

Taking shelter within the ornate entryway of the squat tor, the party notes with interest that no signs of life break the silence of the stone tower. As they take another step forward, they realise why.

Traps.

This is the fabled tower of Brenji, a rich merchant who wished none to share his enormous wealth. He constructed this tower to store his gold- trapped and ready for any potential thieves. But the ingenious pitfalls and scything walls are not the only dangers within the silent walls of the building. A guardian, left behind by Brenji, still stalks these very halls.

A rattling hiss echoes somewhere from below...
