Elemental Adherent

Welcome, Reader

Before you is a choice of allegiance to a power far greater than yourself. While one may remain a neutral bystander while reading the Paracosm of Ravare, know that you will be kept in the dark about the true secrets of the cosmos. Ten forces seek to lay claim to the most realms under their control. While each share a goal, the method and reason for their conquest is unique.
To simplify matters, we have split the ten into two ill-defined groups simply titled Order and Chaos. On the side of Order, the Primordials seek to control the realms so that they may be sheltered, stagnated, or even in some cases returned to the emptiness they once were. On the side of Chaos, the Primordials wish to be free to grow, consume, and expand without hinderance. To be of order is to seek safety, to be of chaos is to crave freedom.

In a more literal context, choosing an Adherent faction grants you the ability to see secrets, insights, musings, and more across our WorldAnvil site. In the future, it will also supply benefits on our Discord and Forums.

General Information

Nobility, Honorific / Ceremonial
While it is possible to just keep switching roles to uncover every secret, we ask you politely not to. One, it ruins the fun a bit. Two, it spams me something terrible everytime someone switches a lot.

I love this idea. I have now joined and it would be very interesting to see if there are any of these that pull drastically ahead of others.
