Daughters of Purity Organization in Alana | World Anvil

Daughters of Purity

Work in progress!

Slightly NSFW!
The Daughters of Purity only recently established their small church, which worships one of the almost forgotten Old Gods: Senestra. Alicea, who was working in Bridgeport's Great Library at the time, had discovered one of the few copies (there are only three) of the Kama Senestra, or Senestra's Books of Love, a pair of two books encased in a thick leather box. She started reading them and got drawn in rather quickly. After finishing the books, she approached some of her best friends, who were reluctant at first but were struck by the same fascination. Soon the five of them started their little goddess-led counselling service.
Everyone who visits the Daughters leaves with a hint on how to tackle the problems they came with, or they forget their problems altogether.   There is no public prayer service held at the church. Instead, the Sisters meet with clients in one-on-one counselling sessions during which they practice rituals with them. These appointments may be scheduled at the client's convenience. At the conclusion of a session like this, the participating sister assists the client in gaining new perspectives and finding answers to the challenges they came to the session with. A significant number of the customers provide generous contributions to the sisters.

Kama Senestra by Tillerz using MidJourney

  The second book seems to be written in an illegible language, at least if you just pick it up and open it. To grasp the content of the second book, you need to read the first book to the end ("Introduction to the Inner Sanctum" is the important part) and perform the rituals described. This will clean your mind ("purity") and open it for the content of the second book.


Senestra's Necklace by Tillerz using MidJourney

  When reaching the end of the second book, the reader will find a small compartment on the inside of the thick back cover, containing a small heart-shaped necklace. The necklace can only be found and worn by who finished reading the book (there will be a new one for each reader).

This is GM information
Senestra   Alicea's success in locating the book was no coincidence; rather, Senestra was the one who led her in the right direction. The same is true for the property that the church operates in; Senestra acquired it almost twenty years ago and donated it to the sisters anonymously.   The goddess is trying to rebuild her former strength, which is based on a strong followership or alternatively a followership that is able to channel collected energies towards her. Unbeknownst to the Daughters, the heart-shaped necklaces are collecting all the energies that are set free when they are together with their clients and executing the rituals written down in Book II, Chapter II to IX in the Kama Senestra. The energy flow is then directed towards the book, which is basically a part of Senestra and any incoming energy is strengthening her immediately.   Counseling   Many of the Daughters' clients talk a lot. Those bits of information help the Daughters to give hints or advice to other clients. Most clients visit again, enabling the Daughters to puzzle together what is going on in the world and what is of interest. If a new client is announcing his visit, the Daughters try to gather as much information as possible beforehand.

Sapientiam per puritatem

The map of Bridgeport, a harbour city located in the south of Farenia, showcases a maritime center characterized by vibrant activity and bustling trade. Unlike other cities in Farenia, Bridgeport's harbour opens onto a different sea, setting it apart and granting it a unique status. To bolster its connectivity and reinforce its importance in regional trade, the ambitious Bridgeport Channel project is underway. Not everyone is pleased with the construction of the new channel, leading to a surge in violent resistance...

Love the idea of combining those typically differentiated types of love: physical and platonic into one, under the banner of heart with a cross. Sort of like a reunion of the Babylonian traditions of Ishtar with christianity.   The history and spoiler-tagged parts built up some curiosity and hunger for more. And I like it that the 5 characters are shown on the right. It all seems much more branched with them and building involved. I get to know the place and its inhabitants.

Glad you like it. There's more to come, I just started with all the things. :)

Purity through ecstasy, hmmm? Intriguing. I really like that you can't read the second book until you've fully read the first and done the required rituals.   I love the visuals of the building and the characters. I can just imaging wandering through that garden.
