Iriel patron demigoddess of beekeepers, honey and bees.
Misquee goblin rat totem
Seilek demigod of dark magic.
Iriel appears in the form of a shimmering human woman with translucent bee wings wearing a short, simple dress. Her appearance is otherwise human (which would seem to contradict the theory about Iriel being an elven goddess). Other than Clerics, most of her worshippers are Commoners, Druids, and those few fey-touched Sorcerors who derive their magical heritage from fairykind.
Say it is like the sunshine, with its amber glow, and the warmth it brings you. Or say, rather, that it is like dwarven gold but not as cold. Say that it is like the scent of rain in the garden, but sweeter. Say that it is the humming of my drones, the stinging of my soldiers. It is like all of these things and none of them. Say rather, that it is what it is.
Iriel has very few dedicated clerics (although she is remembered fondly by a few druids). Most of her worshippers are simple gardeners, domestic folk, florists, and beekeepers. After many centuries during which Iriel was all but forgotten, belief in her religion is beginning to blossom again. A few of Iriel's new worshippers adventure to seek out artifacts and antiquities that were part of the temple of Iriel's ancient past or to seek out rare and exotic flowers.
Misquee always appears as a gargantuan ancient white rat with red eyes, a long hairless whiplike tail, and patches of mange. Rogues and Sorcerors are counted amongst his worshippers, but he is most popular with Goblin commoners and warriors throughout Molesfork Henge's civilized goblin communities. Savage Goblins who choose rat as their totem are often barbarians.
There is nothing like good beer when you gamble.. drink up! You're rolling high tonight, and your fortune knows no bounds. In the morning you might even pay for all of this, but tonight? Tonight rat smiles on you, and even the knucklebones know your name. I win again! Have another drink! And for the house! More for my new friends..! My friends. Heh. Rat willing, they'll never know how much they've been cheated.
Rat has few clerics, although each goblin tribe devoted to Rat has an adept for a shaman. Most of Rat's non-goblin worshippers (and even a good portion of the goblins) are simply tricksters, brewers, and gamblers. They adventure for the sheer love of fun, the chance to take risks, and the opportunity to tempt fate. And hopefully to make a fat stack of gold coins in the process.
Seilek appears alternately as a sickly old man dressed in yellow robes and as a black dragon with gleaming scales. Although he has few clerics, they are treated especially well. Most of his worshippers are adepts, wizards, and sorcerors. Most commonfolk are unaware of Seilek's obscure existence, and the few who seek him out sometimes become cultists. The most exalted state of existence to a true seeker of Seilek is lich-hood. Many of his clerics are actually vampires.
All of the mysteries of the infinite planes are ssspread out before usss, and we inscribe their secrets in our dark booksss. There are no more sssecrets to uss. There are no sssecrets to anyone who has the drive to dissscover the answers, yess? Yesss. But they remain secretsss to the uninitiated, the uninformed, the un-living. In life you will find nothing but wearinessss. In death, you will find only oblivion. But in Undeath.. you will find knowledge. And in knowledge there iss sssssalvation.
Seilek's clerics often multiclass as adepts, sorcerors and wizards. They normally worship in isolation, keeping their allegiance to Seilek a secret. In rare cases a cleric of Seilek will gather a group of commoners together as an organized cult. A good percentage of them are actually vampires. They adventure to discover the answers to lost secrets, to solve mysteries, and to engage in missions to gather hidden knowledge.
you've got mole!
