Luniwyn, the Silver Maiden
The Erenel site is undergoing major changes and lore updates. Please note only articles listed in the Gamingbrew Discord are finalized. All other articles should be considered outdated lore.
Let us never forget the Silver Maiden, full of infinite wisdom, so loved her father that she chose to willingly stare into cosmic horror and fight back the infringing void. It is a mystery all who worship must ponder.Luniwyn is the goddess of the Moon, Prophecy, Secrets, and Wisdom. She is also one of three deities birthed by Aymara the Foremother, and a direct descendant of Al'Madoon, the Architect. After her ascension to the Above following the Great Sacrifice, Luniwyn found herself drawn to the sky. The life essence's Al’Madoon willingly removed from his body during creation, Ikaram the Sol, and the stars in the sky, shone beautifully and stood vigilant protecting Erenel from the void. Luniwyn did not feel the same love, her siblings and mother felt for the people of Erenel, but she did long to assist in what her father gave his life to protect – the universe. Luniwyn saw how the void would encroach while Ikaram the Sol circled away, leaving the stars to struggle in pushing away the darkness. She would join their plight in the dark sky and bring twilight to the world, shining with the silver light of the stars, staring back into the unending void.
Cycle of the MoonLuniwyn has many changing moods and natures resembling the cycle of the moon. The light’s shadow is still partially in darkness as the void stares back. Those who communicate with Luniwyn note that at times she is enthusiastic and joyous. At other times, she appears subdued and tranquil before becoming overcome by sadness. Finally, she could appear cold and fierce, showing little mercy for those who oppose her ideals. By following the rotation of the moon, one can predict Luniwyn’s mood, with a full cycle taking place over 16 days. When the moon appears new, she is filled with happiness, but when the moon is full she turns aggressive. Similarly, others who look to the moon for guidance follow a similar cycle of emotions.

Lunar CycleFind comfort in the beauty of twilight instead of the bright light of fanatical good or the darkness of infinite evil. Straddle the freedom to choose the side you believe in between chaos and law. Sometimes we are radiant and alluring, while other times we are cold and full of melancholy. Both are legitimate, and there is a proper time for each.
