Temple of the Whore SaintEdit
History of the TempleEdit
When it came time to build one for Lydia, after she was made a concubine, Lascene commissioned a palace with its own tepidarium, knowing that the water was something Lydia loved.He built the baths in such a way that they could also sluice blood into them – blood being the only way that vampires could stand to be in water themselves. When the Vampire Civil War began, Lascene sent all of the harem to the pleasure palace for their safety, along with eunuch guards to ensure their safety.
History of the WetlandsEdit
The Vampire HuntersEdit
They were transients, because they weren't welcomed in the villages. Their reputations – of being thieves, rapists, psychopaths – were well deserved. And they found a place for themselves in the new societal structure that arose: that of being protectors.After a few chance encounters with vampire patrols, they earned a reputation: they were vicious, but they were necessary. They would ensure that the villages were safe from harm if they were provided with food, drink and clothes. And if the villages didn't pay? The so-called Vampire Hunters couldn't guarantee that they would be safe from attack. It was a racket, but it worked. They were feared and respected in equal measure, and nobody wanted to challenge them: they did, on occasion, do as their name suggested. Their crimes – which included all their prior proclivities – were brushed over and ignored.
One day, he stopped.
History of NosgothEdit
One such deity was the sun, worshipped as a source of life and reproduction. The worshippers were a smaller segment of Nosgoth's human population, seen as a fringe cult for the most part.
When the vampires blackened the skies, they were the first to step up and offer a solution to the humans of Nosgoth. They argued that, because they were ignored, their God - the true God, the God that was the sun - was allowed to be pushed away; only by worshipping him might be restored.Over the centuries, the cult turned into a major religion, the defining force of human worship in Nosgoth. Only the thin outline of the sun could be seen behind Nosgoth's clouded skies; legends were told in the villages and hamlets that the sun could defeat the vampires, that bringing it back to prominence through their worship might return Nosgoth to the way it was. Art was made showing the sun, a glowing wheel in the sky, showering Nosgoth in light.
Myth of the SunEdit
The Sun ruled everything, but grew lonely, so created humanity to worship it. However, humans didn't need the Sun, so its loneliness remained. It created the Moon instead, as a lover. But Moon watched Nosgoth as the Sun slept, and vice versa; so Moon, taking a leaf from her creator's book, made her own creatures.These were the Vampires. The Vampires blackened the Sun, to cast the land into perpetual darkness, and attacked the humans, waging a terrible war that decimated Nosgoth.
With the loss of the Sun, so too came the loss of fertility; slowly, at first, but accelerating through the generations until there were no more children left. It would take a miracle to restart the wheel of life in Nosgoth.
