Cult of the Old Gods

147 posts in this topic

Cultum Veteris Caelestes

Before Andraste and the Chantry there were the Old Gods and the Temples dedicated to them. In every major city there was a tower dedicated to the dragon gods. Every clerics and priest and priestess was revered, they were the most powerful mages in the Imperium. Then came Andraste and Hessarian turning Tevinter into a Chantry faithful country. The Purging commenced and every temple became a Circle or a Chantry, the faithful were killed and every magister was forced to commit to the Chantry, or die. Some hid, and some lied. Tevinter thought the Old Gods religion was gone, but it was merely underground.

It lived, and it wants Tevinter back.

Current Plots

 

Uprising: The Last Night Banner 1

  • Uprising - The Last Night
    • See spoiler for details
Spoiler

The Dragon of Night and Shadow

The cult known as The Last Night abducted and ritualistically murdered multiple individuals during one of the the Grand Tournies of the Free Marches in the early Dragon Age, before attempting to destroy the tourney grounds during the finale of the grand melee.


Proposed Date of Event/Plot/Quest: Wintermatch 952 - onwards

Brief Summary of Event/Plot/Quest/Ship: The Last Night are a splinter group composed of the worshippers of Lusacan. Until the last decade they had been a part of the Religion of the Old Gods within the temple of Lusacan. Since the murder of their high priestess, Lucretia Valerius Atrum, they have openly declared themselves as enemies of the other cultists - specifically the Cult of Dumat -  taking all of the cultists of Lusacan with them. The Last Night want to declare themselves openly as enemies of the Archon, the Magisterium and the Chantry. They do not want to be covert any more, they want their Uprising...

     

    Future Plot Ideas:

    • War against Archon - take back Tevinter!
    • Destroy the rest of the old gods worshippers and force worship of Lusacan upon all Tevinters.
    • Rumours that they have discovered the location of the Old God Lucsacan, with the help of the Ambassadoria they have secured the location - OR SO IT IS RUMOURED.


    Plot Notes:

    • 945: Lucretia gathers support from Lusacan cultists - becomes leader of ancient sub faction The Last Night
    • 950-951: Goes silent after Tacitus is murdered. The cult stop communicating with other temples.
    • 952: Lucretia is murdered by Rajani
    • Caius takes control of the Last Night and begins planning their revenge.
      • Forces all Lusacan cultists to support The Last Night
      • Take over all the Lusacan temples.
    • PLOT BEGINS!

      Ok, I have Manius free for plotting, a Magister and High Priest of Dumat.

      He recently focus more on interaction with Magisterium and the Imperial Chantry, but not exclusive to them. So who could he meet from there?

      @Claire , what about starting with something very basic for the Cato siblings? Like Manius returns to the tower after Appia invited her friends there and he find out? That was Mid Haring, 951, so maybe a week after or something.

      Also, shall we plot things with Cassius further down the line? What does the two know about each other's anyway?

      @Zyah_Rayne If you'd like, I think it's good idea if we do a thread with Manius and Rajani. I assume they haven't been in touch for some time, but this can change.

      What about them meeting to get the wheel rolling for the cult after being scarce for some time? Bringing more assets to Dumat followers, like in: Recruits, resources, information, or something like that. They can get to plot for what's next, it seems the internal threat from other temples is growing, so they can see how they can prepare.

      It would be interesting to see how the two High priest/Priestess work together.

      What do you think?

      It's just you and I with Shades right now, right? The Shade stuff comes under "Civil War" (see the top of the OP), which will have tagged threads but won't ramp up seriously until The Last Night have made their move/been dealt with.

      Yes. I retired her. But I can bring her out of retirement if there are plots/threads for her.

      I believe Civil War will be fun and it will have plots for these characters. And since I'm slowly returning there will be threads for Shades too.

       

      Civil War is the slow builder, so we'll be doing the Shades/Archon's side of the plot while The Last Night plot unfolds. See, if the Last Night "win" and end up exposing the cult to go head to head with the Archon/Magisterium then the Shades react differently. Whereas if Dumat's lot "win" the Shades need to work much harder to uncover who is a traitor to the Archon.

       

      To begin with, we focus on what Cassius has revealed to Sextus and go from there?
