*You see a female Elf who nods in greeting and smiEL-DB.comles warmly as you approach.* Hello. Are you lost?
LostForgive me for being unclear. There are many kinds and ways of being lost. One answer I could give is to tell you that you are standing in the Room of the Sacred Bowl within Jayden's Temple. Do you know what your purpose is for coming here today?
Sacred BowlYes. This entire room is The Sacred Bowl and standing in the center of this room is The Sacred Chalice that has been blessed by Jayden with remarkable power. It is on a pedestal so that its form, shape and artistry may be admired from any direction. The artistry of The Sacred Chalice reminds us that it was Jayden who thought of potion making as an art form.
The Sacred Chalice is surrounded by steaming water heated by the furnace on the lower level. Besides reminding us of potion-making, it also represents the ever-changing trials in life we must all endure. The small platforms suspended on the surface of the steaming water that allow you to walk around the Sacred Chalice are symbolic also.
PlatformsSimply speaking, they imply that anyone, coming from anywhere, no matter what trials they may have to endure, may approach Jayden's gifts - whatever their walk in life may be. Eventually, all roads lead to Jayden.
PurposeAll who come here do so for a purpose. Sometimes that purpose is known, other times not. I was attempting to find out which category you fall into.
Who are you?My name is Kahlen. I am a priestess of Jayden, the Goddess of Mixture, Reason and Patience. As a follower of Jayden, my time is mostly filled with study; therefore I have little knowledge of what is happening in the world outside this temple. Saville does tell me things from time to time, but she is rather sheltered herself.
StudyI and my colleagues study various combinations of objects. We examine their properties and how well they mix with other objects. It is a slow and arduous life path we have chosen to follow. AsEL-DB.com Jayden's followers, we must be extremely well focused on our tasks. We certainly don't sit around a bubbling cauldron and cackle insanely, no matter what some of the fumes may tempt us to do.
Why?To find that which we seek - a way to break Mortos' curse of undying evil while maintaining the Order of the Stream. Is that what you're seeking here today?
Order of the StreamThe Order of the Stream is what we call ourselves - those of us who follow Jayden. It is not an easy path to follow though. It demands great patience and strong reasoning powers for the intense focus we must direct on our mixtures. We think of them as virtues since they're necessary for successfully creating potions. Without them, more often than not, the mixture fails.
Can I join?If you truly wish to join our Order, look deeply and honestly into yourself to see if you have the required focus and the virtues of patience and reasoning: you're the only one who can honestly answer those questions. If you do have the necessary virtues, you'll need to speak with Iazurn.
You will find many prominent members of society are followers of Jayden. From royalty to merchants to beggars, those of every walk of life seek the guidance of my goddess.
