The Rise of the Triumvirate
Hey guys, incase you haven't heard, I am running a plot called the "Rise of the Triumvirate." This plot is unique in that it is incredibly open ended.
The Triumvirate Preach That the Churches of Tyche, Eldath, and Tempus have united to preach a new creed- That the Three Gods that they worship have taken on the mantle of "Protectors of Mankind," and that in the troubling times of the Silence, the Triumvirate will unite the varied faiths of mankind- via War and Conquest, or peace and persuasion, and together- blossom a golden age of mankind that shall eclipse the previous glories of man- the Empires of Imaskar and Netheril shall simply be footnotes in the past instead of significant triumphs.
With the defeat of the Prophet of the Triumvirate (formerly known as the Axe of Tempus) the guiding force holding the chaotic, disparate faiths together has faltered, allowing players to cause the Church of the Triumvirate to Fail or Succeed. Permiting them to write the new dogma of the Church, and dictate the canon, the public message, and even the ranking inside the clergy. While the gods may be still separate, the Church has proclaimed that to worship one, is to worship all- which causes some more traditional tycheans and the Darmossian Cult to openly declare them heretics. More traditional Tempussian Churches have also rejected the call to unite, stating that the defeat of the Axe of Tempus is an obvious sign of divine disfavor to the new bold unity.
However, since Hardcastle has given them limited law enforcement powers to legalize their war against the Chaos Brigade, the poor sectors of the city tense for a conflict between criminals and thieves, and fanatical warriors who wish to work the will of their god.
Application: None, but if you wish to become "Ordained Clergy" you need to apply.
Deity: Tempus, Eldath, or Tyche- or even "The Triumvirate"
Possible Prestige Classes: Weaponmaster, Champion of Torm…both are reasonable paths in this Faction.
This is a Plot Faction, and will be receiving a faction base, storage, and NPC backing. While not an official DM faction, there is the potential it can become one if it succeeds against the Chaos Brigade.
However, keep in mind- PvP (Mechanical) will be a part of this faction and players are expected to maturely handle it. Since Old Town does not require a DM to PvP, you are subject to the same rules as everyone else. However, I firmly believe this is a unique opportunity for players to create an entire Church dedicated to three popular gods, dictate the dogma and its teachings, and try and convert players to something that is completely unfounded in canon.
I am willing to help anyone who is looking to join this plot faction.
Note: Membership in this faction does not prevent you from joining other DM factions such as the Militia, Hardcastle, or other special positions such as Aldek's Apprentice or Kanthea's own.
