Priests of Lathander
This is the second guild that saw the light
under the ever-shining sun of our beautiful and challenging
Certain men, and women, noticed that the
power of evil was increasing, thus was spawned the first seed
of the brotherhood of Lathander. For it is said in the holy
book of Lathander, that to strive for good is what keeps mankind
separated from the beasts.
One beautiful morning, Lathander (who is
also called the Morninglord) appeared before a man who had
committed himself to battle evil. Lathander spoke to the man,
and invested upon him the powers of the Morninglord, thus
awoke the first priest of Lathander.
Lathander also set certain rules regarding
his worshipers, these rules were (and still are); A priest
of Lathander must always strive for good. His prime requisite
shall be wisdom. Wisdom to choose his ways wisely, aid the
needy, and slay those that oppose goodness.
A worthy priest will be granted more powers
than a priest that has strayed from the true path of his faith.
The first priest of Lathander quickly gained
followers. These followers saw the righteousness of the ways
of Lathander. They too became priests under the watchful eyes
of Lathander. Quickly increased the numbers of the Lathanderites,
and so the power of evil diminished, and the power of good
was greatly increased.
The first priests saw fit to invest a temple,
dedicated to their beliefs. This temple arose in Everlund,
and has grown both in beauty and power, ever since. This temple
is still located in Everlund, and is the center of the priests
It is known to the priests, that certain
priests were tempted by evil, and that these priests so greatly
affronted Lathander, that they were instantly banished from
However, Lathander is a benign deity, and
has granted access again to those priests that were banished,
but that has changed their ways towards goodness once again.
When a priest of Lathander strays from his
chosen path, he will notice this by not being granted certain
spells from Lathander.
Today, the power of evil has once more grown.
Therefore the priests of Lathander are striving to increase
their power by accepting new members to their guild.
If you feel that evil should always be struck
down, then this is the guild for you.
I welcome you.
Yuric the High Morninglord of Lathander.
