OverviewRondra was born at 1st of Rondra 9939 b. BF, also known as 1st of Rondra 0 TG in the old calendar of Rondra. He grew up in noble conditions and spends most of his time in a temple of Lathander, looking to become a paladin. In 9907 b. BF, he indeed becomes a paladin, but serves Tyr instead, finding this god more fitting for himself.
Rondra attempts journeys over 40 years, questing for power and strength, visiting The Pale Tree, the Mahlstrom, and other places in Durarin, Lusitania, and Tiakis. His journey ends in the Mitractulum, where he meets Yaldin, which results in both of them going on monster hunts. In the next 45 years, Rondra slays many mythical, legendary monsters, for example, the Lindworm of Ganager, the aboleth of Durarin, and the Hythonia of Tiakis. Due to the loss of a friend, Rondra quits his monster hunts in 9826 b. BF.
Rondra creates the humans in 9819 b. BF and helps them to settle in Ephea and defend themselves from the orcs. The humans quickly expanded, crowning Rondra as leader and king of the rising empire. In 9766 b. BF, Rondra declares war on the orcs and participates in 9737 b. BF in the 20 year-long first holy expedition against the orcs. Throughout the years, Rondra meets eleven of the Twelve-Gods and the Nameless, forming The Divine Four together with Gwenth, Ker, and Talvin.
In 9460 b. BF he marries Turis, which later in 9323 b. BF gave birth to Secular, Rondra's first son and heir. With that, he retires from the war front and focuses on administrative and governmental issues. In 9141 b. BF, he leads the second holy expedition against the orcs for eleven years and gathers seven powerful wizards, founding 'The Circle of Justice'. Together with The Circle of Justice, Ker, and soldiers from the military, Rondra hunts down The Nameless from 9130-9057 b. BF, eventually banishing him from the material plane.
After almost 900 years from his birth, Rondra dies on the 14th of Ker 9054 b. BF. After his death, the humans ascended him to a god, setting the first foundation stone for the Pantheon of the Twelve-Gods.
The church of the sunThe church of the sun, also called the church of Rondra, is the highest, most powerful church in Alendia. It has its own private army, called 'Rondra's Watch', which has the task to ensure security around Rondra's churches and other related sacred places. Additionally, they are obliged to hunt down and shatter The Dark church. The seat of the church of the sun is in Lusitania, namely in Rondrarien. After the theft and recovery of Rondra's journals in 4359-4341 b. BF, the church of the sun was worried about the rogue guild and changed their seat from Lionstone to Rondrarien. The church of the sun possesses many artifacts of Rondra and other dieties, for example, Rondra's journals, Rawanda, and Alengard.
