The Temple of the Moon

By:

This Temple rests at the highest point of the island of Gond so that the Seers might observe the rising and setting of the sun, moon, and stars.

Location

The Temple of the Moon rests at the highest point on the island of Gond. Such that the Seers of Moon, stars, sky and sea might be able to best observe the celestial bodies and the winds and waters.

Hierarchy

The Seers direct and lead the Temple in the simple matters of educating those under their supervision, answering only to the Oracles as the heads of the Temple.

Members

Not all Acolytes at the Temple are magically gifted. those without the gifts of wind, water, moon or stars are trained in the arts mathematics, navigation, reading the stars and cartography.

The gifted as they are known, become seers, oracles, priests and priestesses of the Moon, sky, sea, or stars.

Affiliations

House Zand - The temple creates contracts with the masters of Zand. Sending a priest or priestess on their vessels to protect the ships from the threats of wind and sea. The result is twofold; Zandian vessels travel with greater security, and the Priests are able to hone their skills and learn about the greater world beyond the archipelago.

Solid post, I am always a fan of these types of orders that serve a pragmatic purpose. This could be a good piece of backstory to justify a characters place on a ship or place to visit when seeking maps or other advice.

BBQ World?

       By: Redgre

"The world has an immovable dark red sun in the centre of the sky that produces very little light. The heat is totally unbearable and the aroma of delicious cooking meat is in the air. To look around it appears as though you are surrounded by giant black mountains with no vegetation anywhere. The ground is soft and an oily liquid flows into your footprints. Travelling reveals nothing else."

Any character without some resistance to fire or heat is slowly being cooked. The ground if you haven't guessed it is the cooked meat.

I've wanted this world to be part of a dimensional hopping "chase". I thought maybe to populate this world with giant carnivorous beetles or perhaps this could be a "Nirvana" for deceased or living (but dimension travelling) fire dragons.

Perhaps I've just been grilling a little too much meat or perhaps there are some great ideas out there on how to spruce up the place. Any suggestions?
