The Setting Sun (Deity’s Eclipse 2017)
For as long as anyone can remember, once the sun sets upon the 31st Day of The Spirit Moon, a night of true terror begins for the inhabitants of Adraveth.
Dark horrors stalk the woods and those of faith find their connections severed from their respective Gods or Goddesses. Those who follow the Spirits find themselves seemingly abandoned as well. Curiously, those who follow the God of Lies find themselves with a connection still in place.
Many have called this night The Deity’s Eclipse while the tribesmen have called it Spiritsdeath.
None seem to know why their connections to the Divine and Spirit falter, but all can agree that that night, perhaps more than any other night, is a time for people to come together and protect one another. It is not unheard of for several families to spend the eve together under a single roof, with their doors locked and barred, and the sounds of unspeakable horrors wailing outside.
Some believe that The Eclipse is a test of faith for all, devised by the children of the All-Mother and the All-Father as a way to see whether or not their worshipers can draw upon the core tenants of the faiths which led them to devote their lives to serving their chosen deity in the first place.
Nothing one sees during the Eclipse can be trusted, and travel during the eve should be seriously limited for the safety of oneself and others.
The Scroll and Dragon has been officially offered as a place of respite for those seeking to gather together during this Deity’s Eclipse, in the hopes that those without a place for safe haven might find some there. Those seeking shelter may freely spend the night within her walls.
To clarify, the actual in-game dates will differ this weekend from their RL counterparts. The weekend will take place over the 30th, 31st, and 1st from an in-game standpoint.
If you are a DEDICATED Cleric or Shaman, from 6:00 PM on Saturday night until midnight of the same night, you will find yourself completely severed from any Divine or Spirit connections, and will be unable to cast any spells, or use any abilities that rely on Divine or Shamanic connection such as Deity’s Favor. This will leave you feeling truly awful, since such a large portion of who you are has been effectively severed.
