Deamod e'Lufaren

High Priest of Farenthal and founder of the Temple of a Thousand Faces

A person without a temple is clearly without spiritual home... And where there is no temple, there can be no homes. As we break ground it is my hope that, when this marvelous Temple is complete, it will help us to build those homes that we both desperately crave, and so dearly need in this new world

Honorary & Occupational Titles
- Former High Priest of Farenthal
- Founder of the Temple of a Thousand Faces
Born in Olienn like many settlers, as an individual, Deamod e'Lufaren was well known among the religious for his immense care for both the spiritual and physical well being of his congregations.
  Early on in his life, well before his joining of the Priesthood back in Olienn, he took a personal vow of Celibacy and Poverty in order to better help others. He held true to those vows throughout the entirety of his life- never breaking his convictions once insofar as anyone has ever known or been able to prove; such was the strength of his conviction, in fact, that he often publicly credited these vows for helping him through some of the toughest and most emotionally and spiritually demanding times in his life.   Part of the third wave of new settlers to arrive on the continent of Tolara in 5728 after the wreck of The Golden Duchess, two years later in 5730, he- along with Aaina Viswan- broke ground on the building that would later become known as the Temple of a Thousand Faces. This Temple would become the first Tolaran wonder, as well as the centerpoint of faith on the continent, and (eventually) headquarters of the Priest's Guild after the Ferenian Migration and the events that spawned it.   Under his 80 years of leadership, the completed Temple and its Priesthood was instrumental in helping to establish the safety, security, and general health of the early Tolaran colonies- taking the personal convictions and actions of Imalda e'Yisonn to heart, and transforming it into the foundational principles on which the Temple opperated.

Author's Notes

▼ Please Read Before You Comment ▼
I absolutely love getting feedback on my setting and its worldbuilding. I love it even more when people poke and prod at it, and ask questions about the things I've built within it. I want both. I actively encourage both. And it makes me incredibly giddy whenever I get either. However, there's a time and a place for critique in particular- mostly when I've actually asked for it (which usually happens in World Anvil's discord server). And when I do ask for critique, there are two major things I politely request that you do not include in your commentary:   ➤ The first is any sort of critique on the way I've chosen to organize or format something; Saleh'Alire is not a narrative world written for reader enjoyment... It's is a living campaign setting for Dungeons and Dragons. To that end, it's written and organized for my players and I, specifically for ease of use during gameplay- and our organization needs are sometimes very different than others'. They are especially diferent, often-times, from how things "should be organized" for reader enjoyment.   ➤ Secondly, is any critique about sentence phrasing and structure, word choice, and so on; unless you've specifically found a typo, or you know for a provable fact I've blatantly misued a word, or something is legitimately unclear explicitly because I've worded it too strangely? Then respectfully: Don't comment on it; as a native English speaker of the SAE dialect, language critique in particular will almost always be unwelcome unless it's absolutely necessary. This is especially true if English is not you first language to begin with. My native dialect is criticized enough as it is for being "wrong", even by fellow native English speakers ... I really don't want to deal with the additional linguistic elitism of "formal english" from Second-Language speakers (no offense intended).   That being said: If you want to ask questions, speculate, or just ramble? Go for it! I love talking about my setting and I'm always happy to answer any questions you have, or entertain any thoughts about it. Praise, of course, is always welcome too (even if it's just a casual "this is great", it still means a lot to authors)- and if you love it, please don't forget to actually show that love by liking it and sharing it around. Because I genuinely do enjoy watching people explore and interact with my setting, and ask questions about it, and I'd definitely love to hear from you... Just be respectful about it, yeah?
