Phoenix Riders {Vosana Falconhand}

We ride the sky and fight the darkness with fury, fire and faith. We are the lance as those of the north are the shield. We stand against the beasts of blackness, the nightmares, the void, and the monsters of our world with lance, halberd, and bow. We are the warriors of the Phoenix Riders, the chosen faithful of the Lady of the Sun, Vosana Falconhand. We are her bastion, and we will fly high and find victory!

Those whom follow the path of Vosana Falconhand (or Vosona, it is spelt both ways really depends which continent you are on) see themselves as the spear to Sir Kartheart's Shield. They are the Phoenix Riders, their faith is the most militant in mind, the most zealous in their warrior heritage, still holding to the old ways amongst their orders in most cases, with a preference to dying fighting against the dark, than dying old and alone and decrepit.


Divine Powers of the Phoenix Riders

Domains: Every faith has domains, and these manifest in many ways. A priest or other religious figure so inclined to have such ability will actually be wielding power based on these domains as well as the unique powers listed here. The domains of Vosana Falconhand, the Phoenix Queen, are; Light, Order, War and Strength. The domains do not change from 5e.

Divine Powers: Those of strong enough faith and trusted by their dieties on Valerick can directly wield divine power, entrusted with it by their God/Goddess and heralds directly through prayer. Every diety offers these war hymns, prayers and litanies tucked away in the vast library of scriptures and hymns that come with religion as an institution. These should take form to fit the diety, especially limitations on summoning spells and their ilk, tied only to the realms, planes and domains that the diety controls or influences. But this is more a matter of roleplay than anything else.


Below is listed some information that anyone playing a character of faith whom worships Boran the Bloodhound would know. Note when it comes to the Religious Ordos, that the three listed are not the only ones for their respective class, nor are they class exclusive. It merely is to note which of the three classes of those whom are blessed with Divine power you will find most frequently. In fact you don't need to wield Divine Power directly to be a member of the Ordos in any religion. Though you do to become any sort of high ranking official or leader.

Popular Religious Symbols: Orange Sunburst behind a white elven warbow. A Pegasi, magnificent in mid flight. A lit torch, backed by blue sky.

Those whom worship Vosana Falconhand have the following tenets. Like all faiths on Valerick, one must consider their Ordos within that faith, their position as a Priest, Templar or Ranger, to understand how they might interpret these into a personal code of behavior and conduct that is the contract of faith between you and your god. However very broadly, here are the principles of the Phoenix Queen's Faithful;

1) Bravery in all things
2) No Fear
3) Courage and Valor
4) Lead by Deed and Action more than Words
