A Profusion of Rum and Coconuts - Syka's OOC

Caiyha’s Arbor

Image


Deep in the heart of the Maw grows an enormous ebony tree called Caiyha’s Arbor. The tree serves as Caiyha’s hidden shrine within the Maw and can only be stumbled upon by those who bear no ill will towards the goddess’s dominion. Individuals who wish harm or show irreverence for the jungle will be unable to find the shrine and pass by unseeing. While the tree is huge it shows no other outwardly visible signs of being a sacred place.

If a person who is able to find the shrine walks within twenty feet of the tree they will be granted the nature goddess’s boon of safety. No violence will befall visitors of the shrine so long as they stay within the magical perimeter and they will be unable to be violent to others, even if those others are located outside of the shrine’s influence. As soon as they enter within the influence of the shrine they will feel a sense of calm and peace wash over their being. The sense of peace extends beyond just a person’s actions and those with troubled heart or mind will find themselves relieved of their burdens temporarily under the Arbor.

Shortly after a visitor finds the shrine they will be greeted by the shrine’s keeper, a Jamoura named Brosh who lives above in the branches. Brosh will allow visitors to remain under the safety of Caihya’s Arbor for a single night before bidding them a firm farewell in the morning. Brosh may offer fruit from the forest and rough directions within the Maw to visitors who show respect to the shrine. An offering to Caiyha may yield more helpful information about whatever adventure has led them into the depths of the Maw. Outside of responding to direct questions, the reserved Jamoura keeps to himself when the rare visitor is present and sleeps in the leafy canopy at night.

When visitors leave the Arbor and pass beyond the influence of the shrine’s power they will again be at risk of the dangers of the Maw. They will feel the desire to keep the shrine’s existence secret in honor of the safety that Caiyha granted them.

 
NPC
Image
Name: Brosh
Race: Jamoura
DoB: Fall 42, 151
PoB: The Spires
Title: Keeper of Caiyha’s Arbor
Skills:Wilderness Survival 70, Botany 60, Unarmed 55, Land Navigation, 50 Meditation 40
Gnosis: Caiyha 1 (Tropical Forest)

Brosh is a quiet, thoughtful male who speaks with respect to all but does not seek out the company of others. He was born in the Spires and like most Jamoura he feels a deep respect for the natural world around him and the goddess who watches over it. Growing up, Brosh spent the majority of his time exploring the Talderan forests and learning how the web of life connected together. When he came to adulthood Caiyha offered him the opportunity to do her work and gave him her mark, sending him to Falyndar to look after the jungles there. He settled in the Maw and the goddess granted him the Arbor to look after as he set about the endless task of bringing back balance to nature around the ancient ruins.

I just posted an open thread in Syka, so if anyone wants to join feel free. Not really sure where it’s going just yet, but it’s in the outer edge of the jungle at night right now

Hello Folks!

I wanted to check in with you all and make sure everyone's having fun. I'm going to be posting to both quests today moving them forward. I also wanted to let you know that I finished Kreig's Gnosis quest and am ready to take on another one. I'd like to offer that to Sykian's first. So if you'd like to do a gnosis quest with me, just let me know. I'd like it to be someone who's been around and active quite a while, rather than a new character with just a few posts. If you are looking for a first gnosis mark, there's no restrictions. However, second marks and upwards require a few prominent prerequisites to be met. Below I've quoted the major parts of that requirement.

Here's a quote from the Gnosis page in the wiki.

Characters can start with a Gnosis Mark by acquiring Help Desk approval. They can also receive unlimited level 1 gnosis marks throughout the course of their adventures. However, when they get their first mark, they should spend on average one year in real time before acquiring a second mark by the same deity and have approximately ten threads in which they show reverence to their deity and demonstrate their faith. However, feel free to contact the Help Desk for advice if a PC falls under special circumstances such as being a part of epic quests or lengthy threads involving the god in question. Gnosis marks are incredibly powerful tools. We don't wish to hinder a characters ability to develop faith in a God or Goddess, but we want the relationship to build over time and be tried and tested. Level three marks should take an additional year and require help desk approval before a thread is started to receive one. The same is true for a fourth mark. There exists, as in all things, special circumstances. Please feel free to seek the Help Desk if you have questions or concerns.


So if you are interested, please feel free to PM me and let me know what you want. :)

Goss

Hi! Welcome to Syka. :) Don't eat us, there aren't enough of us to spare!

I'll keep you in mind. After I've IC met you. Be a bit odd to walk up to a random person in the settlement and ask if they'd like to eat a body or two. Might get me thrown out. :P
