Give me more Saints!
Saints are mortal beings who rose to such prominence and power in their lives, as well as favor with the gods, that they have achieved demi-god-like status.
While I have already and continue to come up with some of the more important and famous ones, there should be a plethora of saints in the world – more than even a standard cleric would know by heart. As a model of reference, real world Catholics aren’t even sure how many saints there are – at least 800 or so, with some estimates as high as 8,000.
Of course, I can come up with saints on my own or on the fly as needed, but I think it’d be a lot of fun if potential players and other gamers come up with additional saints for the world.
SO – Get creative!
Read through The Deus, Religion and Worship, and The Modern World to get an understanding of the gods and countries, and then post up some saintly characters, with as much or as little of the following information as you’d like:
- Name (Once I post races, you can follow conventional naming conventions)
- Patron Saint of: (i.e. farmers, brewers, lost items, skipping, singing, gambling, rats, etc)
- Country of Origin
- History and Notable facts
Don’t be offended if I change any of these details. Also it’s wholly possible that your saint can be incorporated into the world canon without he/she ever being of note in the game. Just know that you’re adding flavor and it’s really appreciated!!
