Quote from: TsunamiWombat on August 06, 2021, 09:55:51 AMSounds cool to me. You could make the 9 faced God his Seneschal or the King is the 9 faced God himself. This would piss off the worshippers of the 9 of course who believe in the 9 faced as an abstract. Otherwise the King could be the Lord DepartedAs for the rest of the kings court:Piter Pete - the servant/scullery The Lady in Waiting - The Courtier/names on the tin Old Grandfather - SpymasterPhanax - StewardYeman - Captain of the GuardS'ai- Court Sage or BishopEl - Herald (meaning that guy on the Whispers is a god!!!)The Promise - PagePzatharun - The JesterYevethax - The Grounds Keeper
Quote from: Kiaring on August 04, 2021, 02:02:45 PMI'm big on anything that advances syncretism IG. Despite all the amazing fun times I had with the Grand Vestry / Nephezar stint under the Banner, I've always felt like the way religion and Clerics are set up in CoR allows for exactly this sort of thing, less of "how do I convert everyone to my dogma" and more of "how do I encompass what other are doing into the umbrella of my dogma".Obviously, we always need to be mindful of the power of Clerics and the importance of religion in general to the setting - what I mean by this is that I don't feel syncretism should be used as a blanket excuse to quest your heart out with just about everyone, or to go *glares* and leave the conflict at that. Behind syncretism there should always be overarching philosophies that delineate a character's "hard no's". In your idea, I think hard no's would be, for example, Count loyalists - how would someone involved in a Kingly cult justify working alongside people loyal to someone who wants to openly overthrow the King?That being said, it's a pretty cool idea, hope you get the ball rolling IG somehow!

Quote from: Random_White_Guy on July 28, 2021, 09:28:58 PMI wouldn't say it's impossible, given that the 9 Faced God falls under a similar sort of vibe and circumstance, but it'd definitely need some work to flesh out fully. Maybe even 1-2 Clerics of different faiths preaching fundamentally adjacent ideas/etc.Overall though definitely sounds like a cool push for a religious angle!
