  • The Apollonian Priesthood [Covenant]

    (my train of thought which lead me to the group:

    We have too many female-only groups. I want to make a male only one. Sure, I've made the Order of the Nameless, which has historical reasons for not accepting women, but I want something more radical. I can make my viking group- but they are going to be too "macho". I don't have a mood to make a macho organization right now. I want to make something which adores men for being men, like a neo-Hellenistic thing. On the other hand, there is the whole "women are oppressed so emphasis them" thing, which people seem to like.. however, didn't I made my share of non-standard groups? I mean, all of my pagan religious groups worship female divinities, there are two groups which most of their members are women and even a one which is based around cross-dressers! I want a group of men who worship a male god and think that being a guy is more awesome than begin a girl. Well, going to Greco-Roman, I do have Apollo- he had a lot of male lovers. But his shtick is prophesy, and I've already used it in the Pythian Oracles from a different angle.. but I want to make may pro-gay neo pagan cult of soothsaying Sun worshipers! Damn it, I'm going to make them!)

    The Beloved of the Sun Lord

    [golden sun on a silver plate]

    Equality is a lie.

    People were never meant to be equal- in order to do so, everyone would have to be the same. However, the gods made each person different, unique, and each has a reason to be born- one only he can fulfill. We are not cogs in some merciless machine who could be replaced as easily as socks. Every one on the face of Earth is special, and only be accepting yourself- accepting the fact you are different and always be different no matter what you'll do- you can achieve the mission given to you by the Heavens. Be who you are- all the rest would come from by its own. Let the Sun guide your path, for only those who walk toward it are blind. Don't unite the world- unite yourself.

    That is the agenda of the Apollonian Priesthood. Founded in the early 80's by High Priest Jacob, they were a small group at first- no more than 10 members have joined it at first, all of them seeking to make themselves a place in the world where their sexual orientation would be accepted. The High Priest, who was enchanted by Greek mythology stories when he was a child, decided to dedicate the new religion to Apollo- a god which symbolized to him how a perfect man should be, and that was famous for having many male lovers. In fact, the High Priest has even claimed to be the lover of the Sun God, and that Apollo has came to him in his dreams to guide him into establishing the cult.

    While not many of the members of the Priesthood believed in Jacob (who was known for his questionable personality), they did believed in what his faith symbolized: that it is ok to be different, and perhaps it is even better. At first, the cult was more of a place to hook up with other gay men, but as the time passed it has started to mix all kinds of other occult and religious themes into their rituals- the High Priest has demanded all members to be in excellent shape, which required pouring oil over them while chanting phrases in broken Greek and Latin before the start of all kind of physical ordeals. Then, he added jumping over flames, sun and fire worshiping and even bought two bronze bull statues in order to mimic certain Minoan rituals. Eventually, he even called for ritualistic duels among the members made in nude just in order to determine who is more "manly"- all of that while preaching religious speeches about how men were meant to rule and women are here just to give birth to children. As you may guess, some of the members has left the cult during the process, yet many others took their place. Jacob was, after all, a charismatic individual, and made sure to give any potential recruit exactly what he wanted for.

    What happened next is a bit conventional. Some say that it was Jacob's fate as a lover of the Sun god, for all of his love stories has ended with tragedy. Others simply think he just got too drunk and high. Whatever the reason, it doesn't really change the outcome- that one day, Jacob has decided to oil himself before doing the fire-jumping ritual, and the outcome was as you might expect- he landed too soon and fell directly into the flames, and the fires engulfed him like the arms of a lover. Some say he screamed from pleasure and lust as he did one finale act of love with the Sun god. Others say he simply screamed. Again, the outcome is the same- Jacob died in the flames, and many expected the cult to die with him.

    Only, that it didn't.

    As the more prominent members of the Priesthood gathered together in his room in order to discuses the situation, they discovered a shocking reality- apparently, Jacob was more into occult than anyone has thought. Hundreds of different articles were scattered through the room, mixed with open books about dozens of rituals from almost any religion known. Scriptures in many languages- from ancient Greek to Sumerian- where hidden in his desk, including all kinds of possible translations and interpretations. And among that mess, they found one special item: a book written in Latin which was called "Etruscan Augury and Prophesy", and near it preparation for some kind of special ritual which promised to give those who reform it the true excellency of the Sun. The book has also detailed an older group which practiced similar rituals and existed during the height of the Roman Empire, one which used their prophetic abilities and the blessing of the Sun in order to "watch the night" and "bring Apollo's radiance into the deepest shadows", named as the Watchers of Fortune. While some of the members had doubts about the ritual, most of them thought that even if the group is destined to fall, preforming it would be Jacob's dying wish.

    And so, they gathered together and preformed the ritual- one which included both physical performances and the use of occult chanting and symbolism. They sang and dance the whole night, and at the height of the ritual- just as the sun rose- they sacrificed a bull to Apollo and took an oath upon his name to bring his love and light through the world.

    At first, for one long moment, nothing happened- making the half naked members of the cult feel a bit stupid and sticky from the oil and horse blood. Then, each and every one of the members has saw a vision- of a beautiful man, his body looks as if it was sculptured from stone, his hair gold mixed with molten silver and his eyes burn like blue skies, touching their face gently and delicately kissing them on their lips. As the figure's lips touched theirs, each of the members felt as if fire burned through his veins, consuming him alive: yet, when the vision ended, they were unharmed. Their oath was accepted- and now they should stand on their end of the bargain.

    After the ritual, the members has started to take their duties in the cult a lot more seriously. They saw themselves as the messengers of the Sun God, augurs from the old times who came to guide people to the right path- to fulfill themselves and burn away the chains who bound them. Slowly, they has started to draw more and more members, as the group started to put more emphasis on individuality and self fulfillment and less on a way to meet new men. They started to see themselves as those who were meant to fight the corrupted society which tried to stop people from being who they are, and has even allowed bisexual members to join and even a small number of women- as long as the last remembered their place in the world as housekeepers and bringers of children. Still, masculinity was still seen as the ideal thing, and many of the rituals of Jacob were preserved, even if in a less radical form (no one else has ever tried to jump over an open fire while being covered with oil).

    Today, the cult has based itself in San Francisco. While many look at them as radicals and many feminist movements and neo-pagan groups criticizes their behavior, the group doesn't mind. Their duty is to help people to find their place under the sun, and those who don't accept it can scream as much as they wish too- but eventually, they would come to see the truth. That each has a reason to exist, and working against that reason would bring only pain and sorrow. The only ones who can look directly at the sun are those beloved by it- only they can see the future it holds and the promises it has. All the rest- they would just go blind.

    While the modern Priesthood allows the recruitment of women, they are still seen as "lesser" in from of the male members. The main dogma of the cult is that woman are here only to give birth to children, and that in the ideal world homosexual relationships should be the preferred ones. At the beginning, each of the members were expected to find a female mate just to bring new children to the world, yet as Surrogacy became more and more common, that norm has died out. Because of that, no woman may have Status higher than 2 unless she agrees to be surrogate or she marries one of the members (which allows her to go up to Status 4, never 5). Yet, for a male member to marry a woman is seen as harming the ideal world, meaning his Status may not be higher than 4.
    0- you have accepted the blessings of the Sun God and took an oath to serve him You may buy dots in the Augury Endowment
    000- You have proved yourself loyal to Apollo's agenda and have became a true priest of the god, and so his radiance cover you. You may add your Status (Apollonian Priesthood) for all of your Social rolls.
    00000- you have reached the peak of the Priesthood and you are truly loved by the Sun, giving you his protection. You may add your dots in your Status (Apollonian Priesthood) as a Supernatural Tolerance, and you may attack beings in the Twilight normally.

    Endowment: Augury (1-5)

    Apollo is the god for many things- he is the god of the sun, god of healing, god of music, of oaths- and of prophesy. While he may have granted his followers any of his gifts, the ritual bound them as his seers and prophets who look to the Heavens and say their will. The Augury Endowment has 3 different effects: the first, is a passive effect- thanks to their far sight, they may subtract their dots in Augury from the dicepoll of any attack roll against them, as they avoid the attacks of their enemies in a split of a second.

    The active effect allows them to see visions given them by their god- by rolling Occult+Augury and ask a question. Success gives them a vision which symbolize the answer to the question, although they have to interpreted it by themselves, and they suffer for a -1 for any roll related to that same question. Exceptional Success makes one detail in the vision to be crystal clear for Heaven's intentions. Failure means that no vision would show up and you get -1 for any Augury roll during the same day. Dramatic Failure gives you a vision which is meant to mislead you, either because you angered your god or that he was simply bored. That ability may only be activated during the day, while the cultist is exposed to the light of the sun.

    Finally, the Augury also represent the depth of the connection between the cultist and the god. You may learn Numina as if they were Benedictions, although you can't have more Numina than your Status+Augury. If your Status drops, choose a number of Numina equal to the differences between the old and the new. Those Numina are deactivated until you return to your original Status.

    ​Sacrifice for the Sun

    Jacob was an occultist. He may have started the cult out of whims, but eventually the fascination with the other world has took over him. As the other members found out after his death, he investigated many strange myths and rituals from all around the world, and mixed the pieces he liked together. Among those scripts was, of course, the Book of Augurs- but it wasn't the only one. There were other, weirder writings, some which may have frighten many of the cult members if they would have ever discovered them- a Minoan tablets, detailing men who turned into bulls as they honored the Sun. The royal guard of Sol Invictus who murdered heretics with zeal. A Mithraic Mysteries rituals which included blood sacrifice and undead abominations. And the Rite of the Moloch.

    All of those scripts are hidden deep inside the library of the cult- especially the last one. While the official stance is that Jacob has died by accident or after losing his grip over reality, few of the older members who know about the ancient writings has a different theory: while some of the rituals the first High Priest translated were complicated (like the one they preformed), the last was pretty simple- take someone you love, throw him into the fire, watch him burn and ask a wish. If the sacrifice was big enough (like your own child), that wish would come true. That's it.

    Those who read about the ritual start to wonder if, perhaps, that was the case- if by any chance, Jacob has not just discovered the ritual, but wished to preform it. They point out to the way he used big and open fires in most of his rituals, and that he added bronze bulls as "watchers", for such bulls were the ancient symbol of Moloch (sure, Jacob said it was to honor the Minoan tradition, but there was no reason to mix the two together). They also mention that he acted quit weird few days before the accident, jumping from one lover to the other and even returning to former loves. After all, he had no children, and he never said anything about his family other than curses, and maybe it was a way for him to find a suitable sacrifice- one he loved more than life itself.

    However, if that was the case- the problem stays the same. After all, Jacob has never killed anyone- he was the one to burn. Some suggest that maybe it means it wasn't a suicide, but murder. Maybe while searching the shadow world, he draw the attention of one of their dwellers who used him as a part of the ritual. Many scoff that assumption, for no one has ever tried to make contact with any other member of the cult after Jacob's death, especially when they were the most vulnerable to influence. Others think that maybe Jacob did planned to sacrifice someone- he meant to jump over the fire to convince other to follow him, and then to sabotage the ceremony so an "accident" would happen, and it was only by the blessing of the Sun God that they escaped his plans. However, most of the people have another theory. They say that Jacob did planned to sacrifice himself, and that the ritual was preformed as he intended. After all, the Rite requires the sacrifice of a loved one, and after looking at himself in the mirror, he came to a single conclusion.

    That eventually, Jacob has never loved anyone but himself.

    All that is left is to think what was his wish.

    Breaking the Oath

    All the members of the Apollonian Priesthood take an oath once they join the cult- to guide the many toward the light of the Sun, to watch the future and guide people toward their personal growth while bringing their god's radiance into the darkest night. Most see it as their role in the world- they are guides and shepherds who help lost souls of all kinds, with the "night" being the corrupted society in which they live. Some don't agree- some think they should take a more active role, the the darkness in a physical thing- that there are monsters in the night, and that they should take them down. Those people are not just cultists anymore- but instead, they are true hunters.

    Considering the fluid way the Oath is built, it is very hard to break it- however, there are some acts which undoubtedly break that Oath. Killing other people, for example.

    Each time a cultist thinks he breaks his Oath (at least, the way he interpreted it), he can not use the Active use of his Augury for a number of days equal to his dots in the Endowment (the more powerful the bond, the less forgiving the god). Killing another human being would block all uses of the Endowment and the Status bonus given by the cult, with a human being considered anyone who does not have a Major Template until he preforms a quest to redeem himself. Breaking away from the cult would make you lose the Status benefits, yet as long as you stay true to your oath you may still use your Endowment as normal (Apollo doesn't lost hope so easily from his followers). However, there are two ways to permanently lose all the benefits of the Endowment- the first, is gaining a Major Template. After all, the Sun God's gifts were meant to human beings, and those beings have gifts of their own who come from other sources.

    The other is becoming a Slasher.

    Voluntarily walking into the darkness means abandoning all faith in Apollo, and the Sun God does not give his gifts to those who stray from his radiant path. Once a member gains an Undertaking, he lose his dots in Augury and any benefits gained by the Status even if the Status itself doesn't fall (it means he could still stay a member of the cult if he can trick his friends for long enough), and can no longer activate any of his Numina. However, while gaining a Major Template won't end up with Apollo's resentment, falling into Slasherhood does- once a member gains an Undertaking, the Sun God takes his revenge one last time for breaking the Sacred Oath- the cultist would suffer automatically from one level of Lethal Damage per dot in Augury, which manifest as intense hit and the feeling of liquid fire who tries to get out from his body. Even if the member survive the punishment, he is not left unchanged- a scorch mark in the face of a black sun in manifested on their back, a scar to show all he betrayed his god.

    For that reason, there is one loophole in the "don't kill other people" part of the Oath- as far as Apollo is concerned, Slashers are not considered "people". Killing them is seen as a sacred duty- and if you can do so by fire, it would be the best.

    Watchers of Fortune

    The ancient version of the Apollonian Priesthood was quit a different organization. While they looked to the heavens and guided lost souls and noble men, they didn't held Apollo higher than the rest of the gods. While he undoubtedly was an important god, they have worshiped other gods as well- Jupiter, Juno, Mars, Minerva. Each of the gods could have sent signs, either in the flight of birds or the movements of the clouds. They have also maintained many of the Etruscan traditions, and have not shown great interest in "fulfilling men's individuality". Finally, unlike their modern incarnation, their Oath was clear to all- bringing the radiance into the night meant to uphold the Vigil. They were all hunters, each and every one of them.

    So how did they fell?

    Well, many compacts and conspiracies fall through the years. Monsters destroy them. People destroy them. Time destroy them. It is nothing intentional- through the years, people just show less interest. They lose resources. They become more vulnerable. The lands in which they once thrived fall, taking them with them. Some of them find a different way to survive, like how the Aves Minerva taught their gifts to the Cainte Heresy. Some find a way to adapt to the new times, like the Cheiron Group. Some are protected by some supernatural intervention, like the Lucifuge. And some just die out. That's just how things roll. Sure, the Watchers could have looked into the future, but maybe they read the signs wrong, or maybe they just couldn't stop the upcoming events. It is not an unlikely event.

    You fell for it?

    Good. That was the intention.

    Sure, such fall from grace is, truly, not an unlikely event, and it did happened many times through history. However, what if that was not the case? What if their destruction was planned head by someone with a sight more far than any other on the face of Earth? What is they were betrayed by a rival conspiracy, who wished to gain monopoly over the future, shaping it into a form free from godly intervention, created by humanity and shaped by humanity? The best future one could see even if it required certain sacrifices- like the Watchers themselves? Maybe that group even sees killing for a brighter future as a sacred duty, which is why Apollo is so careful in modern times about granting his gifts to killers, and why he hates Slashers so much? And maybe, just maybe, that conspiracy has survived through the ages, and they won't look fondly on the revival of a group they destroyed ages ago and endanger their perfect future?

    Only one person knows the answer to those question, and she will tell you- if you are going to make the proper sacrifice.

    for more information about that rival cult of seers, see the Pythian Oracles

    Maiden's Blood Sisterhood- "Their perception is flawed, as they try to take upon themselves the role of men. I've even heard they practice witchcraft and dark blood magics. If someone seeks the help of spells and potions instead of the blessings of the gods, it is all you need to know that what they do is not right"
    The Promethean Brotherhood- "Few months ago, the Sun God sent a vision about an incoming danger from those who steal fire. A week after, those guys attacked in the middle of out ceremony and tried to kidnap the High Priest! We took care of them, of course. Don't call yourself after Prometheus if you get burned easily"
    Cheiron Group- "Apollo was both a seer and an healer, so we do appreciate their advancements in the field of medicine. I do, however, have doubts about how much of the darkness you can put into your body before you become one with it..."
    Lucifuge- "One day, our High Priest got invitation to Milan, together with a flying ticket and a latter that some lady out there wishes to "discuss with him about certain dangers" to our group. He never talked about what actually happened in the meeting, but after that our use of fire in out rituals has drastically fell, and he became a lot more nervous. Some think he is dating her and tries to hide it. I don't know the truth, but his constant corresponding with her are a bit alarming.."
    Athenic Church- "there are many gods out there, and each has his own agenda. Minerva is a powerful and respected deity, but so is Apollo- and the Sun is more powerful than crafts. We have our clashes once and a while, but they seem to be more interested in holy sites, while we focus on the deeds of man. We may not agree on many things, but all in all, I think we both do a good job"

    "where there is light, there is hope. Follow the path of the Sun God, and the hope would stay forever"

      I like how you set this group in opposition to your previous conspiracy, and how this provides material for both the modern day and Vigil for Rome.

          Two Suns, One Sphere

          Apollo, the god of the sun, he who brings light to any shadow. The Priests of the Sun God have a strong faith in their patron, following the visions and blessings he grants to them for their service at fighting the darkness, both the one inside a man and outside of him. However, hidden in the cult's library, there are some less... nice descriptions of their god. The Rite of Moloch is one such example, but even then such contradictions about the nature of the Sun are easily explained through the polytheistic system they share. After all, the faith in many gods is a core part of the cult's dogma- so why can't there be many gods for the Sun? Yet, among the many scriptures of Jacob's former collection, there is one more disturbing from the rest- the story of Apollo, the Sun Wolf.

          The writing details the encounter of another group called as the "Lycos Agema" with an Apollonian cult. The Lycos Agema were, according to the book, a spartan secret society which hunted down lycanthropes as a sign of excellence, and that what has drawn their attention were rumors about the cult made of "man eating monsters who could change their flesh between a man and a wolf". They described how they infiltrated one of the cult's bases, where they saw a great bacchanal of debauchery in the name of Apollo- until in the height of the ceremony, the lead priest sang a chant in the "language of beasts" and blazed with golden fire which burned his human skin and revealed the flesh of a wolf. At the same moment, dozen of other beasts showed up from the shadows and attacked the hunters, as if they knew about their presence all along. Many lives were lost in the battle, and those who fell were eaten by the monsters while the human believers kept dancing and drinking and having intercourse with each other, as if in some sort of ecstasy. However, they have underestimated the Agema, and the hunters slaughtered both the beasts and their foolish followers with their heroic virtues and silver swords. By the end of the battle, the heretic temple was covered with blood, and the few lycanthropes and believers who survived run away.

          The book doesn't describe anything more about the cult, which gave the impression that the deviant group was no more- that is, until one of their members returned from a trip in Paris, and he brought with him some.. disturbing stories. According to his tale, he and his local friends heard about some kick-ass party done by some secret elite club- one in which everything goes. Considering that he came to have some good time and such parties were totally his style, they got a ticket (which wasn't cheap) and went to check if the rumors about the so called "Culte de la Raison" were as good as they heard. Oh, they were- but that was not the point. The point is that from the very beginning everything was... weird. Super weird. First, its location- sure, as a secret party which breaks many taboos it made sense to make sure it would be as distant as possible from local crowd, but the structure was built in a style and location which were very similar to the ones of the Priesthood- in a way which would bath in the sun as much as possible, using some greco-roman aesthetics. While the aesthetic wasn't a problem (he had his share of toga parties)- but he couldn't ignore the fact that the location and architecture had some occult, sun worshiping meaning- something that only those who know about the subject and share that faith would recognize. And besides, who is throwing such a party in the middle of the day?

          Second, the guards- again, there was nothing weird with having protection for such a party, but the amount of guards was a bit non proportional, and it looked like the party goers totally ignored their existence. Weirder still, most of the guards were, as you may say, "dressed accordingly"- but they rarely even reacted to the many attempts of his friends on hitting on them. He have also thought about doing so (all the men looked like Greek gods, and the women were just as hot), but some inner sense told him to stay away. There was some weird look in their eyes- some sort of primal violence. Or hunger. Anyway, it was enough to turn him off. And then, there was the party itself- the word "debauchery" wasn't enough to even start to begin to describe how it was in there. In less of two seconds, he was separated from his friends, each being pulled to another place by the surrounding party goers- but he couldn't have just shook the feeling that there was something wrong. After 20 minutes of standing alone by himself as the only one who still had his cloths on, one man (a guard, according to the toga) came to him and asked if "everything was alright". Now, bad feeling or not, he couldn't turned down someone who looked like the manifestation of Apollo himself (long blond hair, tanned skin, body which looks like 100% muscles, barely dressed- you know, all the good stuff). So he went along, until he suggested to him that maybe they could "get to a private place". Thinking backward, that was the weirdest thing to ever happen in the party- in the middle of an event which its very theme is being a brutal orgy of sex and lust, someone invites you to a private room? But that again, he couldn't even describe how hot he was, so he decided that perhaps he was thinking he was a bit shy and let it slide.

          And just as he touched his reached hand- Apollo sent him a vision.

          A blazing image of golden fire covered the man like a cloak- and the man was no man any longer. Instead, he looked distorted, like two images which were laid upon each other- one was the gorgeous man, while the other was the image of a golden wolf and hungry, burning eyes. Every nerve at his body screamed "danger!" at once, as if he was looking at the depths of an endless pit... or at the maw of a starving beast.

          He recoiled immediately, and the vision was gone- the man was man once more with a worried look at his face while asking if something was wrong, but the eyes.. the eyes were the same eyes of the hungry wolf. Guided by the vision, he quickly apologized and said that perhaps this kind of party wasn't his "thing" (a blatant lie, of course). The man smiled, got as close as possible while whispering if he was sure that everything was ok. At any usual state he would have been all over him, but Apollo's warning sent a chill through his spine and he quickly escaped his touch. Seeing that, the man simply shrugged and gave him a card with his number on "in case he'll feel better later". He nodded and run as fast as he could, taking a cub to the hotel, sending messages to his friends the he is sorry that he had to go so suddenly, but things came up and he had to return to the US. Only later he would discover that some of his friends have never returned from the party, others became regular members of the Culte de la Raison and those left weren't willing to speak about what happened, and that they were "paid enough to keep their mouth shut". Also, it may have just been in his head, but as he rode all the way to the airport, he could have sworn that he saw shining eyes watching him from the alleys, and that he heard wolves howl through the streets of Paris.

          After gaining the report, the High Priest has started an investigation of the subject, pulling strings and researching for rumors- and those searches eventually led to that old report written by a group which has probably died out years ago. Apparently, the cult wasn't as dead as the Agema thought it was. That has led into a theological argument inside the Priesthood- were those man eating wolf shifters truly worshipers of Apollo? The same god who despised murder above all and punished fallen members with the black sun? Or perhaps it was an impostor of some kind? Were they meant to work with the other cult, or against it, or just stay out of its way? What ever the case, since that fateful meeting, the High Priest has been suffering from visions about a great wolf made out of fire and star light coming out of the sun to devour the world. Is it another warning? Or perhaps a message? Whatever the case, lately they got another, unexpected visit- a messenger from the Culte de la Raison, a gorgeous tanned man with blond hair and french accent who came to ask if they could rent one of their temples for a upcoming party at the US. They were all invited, he said with a smile. The High Priest still hasn't made a decision about the subject, and was smart enough to deflect any question he had about a "certain man he met in Paris" in which he showed a great interest- but one thing is for sure: no member of the Priesthood would set his foot in the accursed parties of the cult.

          Unless it is to burn the all place in Apollo's name.

            Isn´t a bit OP as a passive effect, rather than having to activate it for a scene through willpower expenditure?
