Been writing up some lore stuff, been collecting some music, and writing up two new race concepts. One which might have someone join the party. The other will have a major antagonist role.

For other lore I wrote up a little bit on some religion as well:

A bit on Elven and Human Religion:

Elven Religion:

The Elvish practice of faith, follows three main principles. "Attainment. Distribution. Attrition." In their beliefs, these are the three main rules of Arcane Knowledge to them. Each principle is enforced by a God, or 'Justice' as they refer. The Justice of Attainment, enforces a law of sacrifice and reward; by giving Arcane Knowledge to the Elves they are expected to ensure it is as a means of self-prosperity and undying fealty to. The Justice of Distribution, enforces influence and control; using the knowledge they've acquired, it is expected for them to bring about virtuous changes to the world. The Justice of Attrition, enforces resolve; the idea that Arcane Knowledge is corrupting and can lead to self destruction.

By perverting Arcane Knowledge, 'The Justice of Attrition' acts and brings forth judgement and is the only Justice that 'directly' has influence on them.

Human Religion:
Much like any race, their beliefs vary depending on the region. Humans of Hestia, the most popular, follow the teachings of 'Lux'. Believing in a single omnipotent being that governs every strand of the universe. Spreading their own influence through prophets to wander the world and teach 'Graces'. There are five Graces, labelled out in their sacred texts.

They are:

Charity.
Chastity.
Temperance.
Clemency.
Equivalence.

So for the party feast, what sort of foods should the troops be expecting? Anything 'spicy'?

Due to the location, most foods are relatively bland, save for spice that Lirsha and her group are able to trade for. So, there will be spices, but nothing too exotic.

Though, the food itself will be strange. The Evergreen Moose is not often (again, in my sweet little headcanon) eaten by Hestian's unless Lirsha and her traders desire to trade the valuable meat for other uncommon and rare items. Even a few fruits and vegetables will be strange. You have a watermelon-sized looking apple that tastes like a peach with a strawberry tang to it. And long vines diced and sliced into leaves that taste like fresh cabbage with honey drizzled on top. For a few other things, just going to leave you wondering until we get to the actual feast.

Next post I think I'll set up Nikita and the rest of the group, getting ready to attend to the feast if that's good?

We could have some posts during it too!

Yeah. That's good.

In relation to posts at the feast, I do plan on doing some stuff for that which may be fun. But we can time skip it if you really want to.

Oh I'd love to take part in the festivities!

Skipping that would be a violation of the RPF Conventions of 1920
