Archon

Unaligned
    Archon is a greater deity of Light and lord of the (eponymous) dark moon Archon. It is said that, ages ago, four demons imprisoned Archon beneath the surface of Krell and in doing so slammed shut the gates to Valiana, plane of the afterlife. Followers of Archon are devoted to vanquishing the Darkness in all of its forms in the hopes of one day freeing Archon and throwing open the Silver Gates. Archon’s followers live according to these principles:
    • To vanquish the Darkness wherever it appears.
    • To live according to the Word as delivered by the Speaker.
    • To achieve the aims of church in order to one day release the deity from its prison and unlock the gates of Valiana.

Beliefs
Symbol: The holy symbol of the church is a broad-edged circle, made from a blackened metal, a representation of the open Well of Eternity. Church lore states that when the Well of Eternity was found, it was capped with a strange black metal. All clergy holy symbols are said to be made from this metal. As a result, the symbols are very coveted, and the church will go to great lengths to recover lost symbols.
Church Hierarchy:
  1. The Speaker: The head of church and state, and guardian of the Well of Eternity, the Speaker is a special individual capable of hearing and withstanding the words of Archon. Not every generation is blessed with a Speaker, and no Speaker stays long into adulthood before disappearing.
  2. Aurors: Their name literally meaning “Hearers”, Aurors act as administrators and holy paragons of the church. The First Auror is charged with the task of interpreting the words of the Speaker and delivering it to the people.
  3. Priests: All clergy are selected at birth and trained to one day serve as protectors and keepers of the Well of Eternity and emancipators of their god.
  4. Eternity Guard: Soldiers of a holy army dedicated to the upholding the principles of the church. Members of the Eternity Guard are generally drawn from those given to the clerical training that showed a greater potential for military training.
  5. The Shadow of Archon: A secretive organization known to few, and spoken of only in whispers. It is said they carry out all tasks considered not befitting the followers of a god of Light.
