Thread: Chapter 8.41: The Altar of Solinari

  1. Default Chapter 8.41: The Altar of Solinari

    After their meal, Brandon tells the Sentinels that he is going to pray at Solinari's altar for a while. Before he departs, he hands the doorknob to Kalthanar and says, "Here, see if Kyricus can help us figure out if this is really what you think it is." He then turns and nonchalantly holds his arm out to Silvart, "Come. Show me to the altar of Solinari."

    OOC: I'm not ignoring this. Moving the threads as fast as I can - especially the ones that can take a while to play out.

    OOC: Take your time. As I said in the OOC thread, this can wait until after we leave Xanthar if need be. He's basically just going to pray to Solinari, ask for guidance, see if she responds or if the voice talks to him again, and then basically spend the rest of the day with Silvart. He plans on asking her to take him to the Broken Anchor for dinner and he may end up inviting the rest of the Sentinels if Vort promises to leave his pants on. He'd like to explore the city a bit, and she's a perfect guide as far as I can tell. He also wants to spend some time talking her out of adventuring given the exceedingly dangerous conditions in Therris at the moment, and he plans on quietly spending some of his 400+ gold pieces to help pay her costs and expenses associated with training at the tower. He isn't necessarily inclined to propose marriage just yet, but having a companion when he visits Xanthar would be pretty cool. Who knows, maybe she will become a real love interest in time...

    Silvart nods and leads him to the door. She explains that unless one wears robes in the tower, all doors lead back to the lobby. Only by wearing robes could the wearer make the doors go to alternate rooms of their choosing. She wasn't sure how that worked exactly, but she always needed to be accompanied inside the tower to maneuver it. Thankfully she was never trapped and free to go as she pleased.

    Opening the door, reveals a round lobby area - probably the first room that looks like it is sized appropriately given the likely size and circular shape of the tower. Large iron double doors are propped open, and Brandon catches a glimpse of a small courtyard and some charred ruins outside the building.

    The room is probably 130 feet in diameter. They are standing at the only door, which Sivart closes behind her. She says, "I'm not allowed to let anyone into the inner chambers. I have to use this." She points to chalkboard of sorts beside the lone door. She says, "I write who I wish to see, my name, and my business. If the person wishes to be seen, the door opens and leads me to them. The words disappear after I write them."

    Looking around the small room are three alcoves of equal size. No words are written above each, only a single picture is above each one - a white moon, a red moon, and a black moon. Each room has a curtain that leads to what looks like a semi-private 30 X 30 shrine of sorts.

    Silvart walks Brandon toward the shrine and bites her lip. She says, "Sandi has been very good to me. Many apprentices that are short on coin are approached by black robes. Sometimes they offer to help students get ahead if they pledge to follow the dark moon. I'd rather make my own choice though, and am leery of that. Plus Abigail scares the shit out of me."

    Leading Brandon to the altar, she pulls the cloth aside and peers in. She half whispers, "It's empty. Generally people like privacy when talking to the gods."

    He grabs her hand and leads her into the alcove with him. “Solinari believes magic should be used for the good of all people, and we as his followers welcome other mages into his domain.”

    OOC: I don’t want to post to far ahead in case you have something planned but he is going to pray to Solinari for guidance as to where he can find Solinari’s items and clarification on the voice he has been hearing (whether it’s good or bad, who it is, etc.)

    OOC: This might also be a good time for Brandon to talk to Silvart alone and try to convince her not to go adventuring. Given the state of affairs in Therris, he wants her to continue her apprenticeship at the tower were it is safer. He plans on helping her with some of her costs once I figure out how much gold he has saved up.
