Swampweed and Cultists

Post by C1QP0X on Thu Oct 16, 2014 1:16 am

Aenea obviously needs a bunch of cultist dudes who worship a "deity" of dreams, sleep.. and such. These dudes will be known for their general wackiness and for the "swampweed" they grow and smoke, which has variety of temporary, beneficial effects, with some draw backs. This idea was directly inspired by my all-time favorite single-player RPG, Gothic from Pirahna Bytes. These dudes are also like druids, casting "nature magic", except they're not.

Here's one of the cultists of 'the Sect Camp' from Gothic: http://lparchive.org/Gothic/Update%2006/18-6-collectweed5.jpg

I must admit, I have always been intrigued by the concept of cultists, and have long thought (but never articulated) that Aenea could accommodate a few of them.

Also, C1QP0X, welcome to Aenea!

Thanks for the welcome! Was gonna say I read in the deities that almost every Aenean has a deity seeing as how they are more of a reality, known of, etc. But I guess there's always room for a few black sheep here and there, praising some unknown spaghetti monster, or something. Not having a deity of dreams helps a bit too. Dreams and sleep is a pretty good chunk of everyday life and I just feel there is an "opening" amongst the ranks of the gods for it. A good, broad portfolio for a prospective deity if The Amethyst Dragon was to consider adding another.

Welcome to Aenea!

Sounds like a Druid or Druid/Monk (both WIS-based) mix to me... you could do it with what we have now, just minus the different god's name.  Since most Druids here really need to have Andra, goddess of Nature, as their god, you could take Andra as god and play a sub-sect of Shaman types.  I played a NWN Druid who was a natural Seer and a herbologist, so it's not a stretch to link that into a Vision-quester type, trying to connect with the soul of the world through herbs.  Your interpretation of what the Earthmother Andra is, and wants from her followers, is up to your character.

..Not really trying to make any characters like this, just throwing out a suggestion for a deity to cover the sleep, dreams portfolios
