A Prayer to Crowa

Lady Crowa;
This Day,
Lend us your strength and passion;
To bring your light to these lands,
and right the wrongs that befall them;
But let us not forget,
Your mercy and compassion;
For those less fortunate or blessed as we;
Praise be to Crowa!

A Winter Prayer

Lady Crowa;
On these cold days and dark nights
Let our hands be warmed by the strength of your heart
Let our path be shown by the light of your grace
Let our minds be focused by the majesty of your voice
Your will be done this day in Arda
Let the beast and abomination fall to our blades
And the glory of The Seven pierce the night sky as stars on high
Praise be to Crowa!

An Open Prayer

My Lady,
Thy will be spread by I your loyal servant.
I pray for those in need, so that your strength and mercy may find them and cleanse their thoughts, actions and Souls.
For Sergeant Obadiah Hakeswill, may his soul be saved as his life was, by the compassion and understanding of others.
For Keeper Wesley Timpleton Smythe, may he find you in his thoughts to guide and temper his actions in the coming weeks.
For Sister Alina, may her trust be found to be well placed.
For Sister Foj, may her dealings be forgiven and her soul secured in the light of The Seven.
For I, your humble servant, may I impart your divine will upon the lands and redeem myself in your eyes.
My Faith in Crowa

A Prayer for the New Year

Lady Crowa
In this new year,
Allow us our thoughts.
For friends
For loved ones;
For those we have lost
For those we have yet to meet.

Allow us our past mistakes;
Let them pass as teachers,
Not hinder our paths,
Oor darken our day.

Allow us our passion renewed;
To free the oppressed,
To crush the tyrants,
To destroy the Beast,
To banish the Abomination.

But most of all,
Allow us the light of your Love;
So our hearts need never know darkness,
And our faith be everlasting.

Praise be to Crowa!

Prayer from Drawing 1009

We give our Praise

To Lady Vleybor, for the spark of Life
To Lord Longstor, for the gift of Nature
To Lord Rolbor, for Knowledge and Trade
To Lady Tralda, for Luck and Games
To Lord Sidhe, for Truth and Reason
To Lord Kharach, for the safety of our Souls

But to Lady Crowa we owe our Passion. Our strength and courage are hers, borrowed until Kharach claims our souls and Longstor casts us to the light of Vleybor once again.

What she gives, she give not lightly!
To misuse these gifts is to invite darkness and damnation.
To use these gifts wisely is to embrace the light ofthe Goddess of Battle!
We, her chosen accept her challenge!
The weak and innocent are our charge.
The Bully, The Beast, The Abomination are our Prey!
Praise by to Crowa!

Glory to the Seven!

A Sermon on the Ways of The Seven

Delivered Pre-Rod Placement on Bone Island, 28th Thawing

Truth. Honour. Bravery.
These are the ways of The Seven

Compassion. Heroism. Reason.
These are the gifts that they bring.

To show these traits is to honour their names.
To shirk them is to bring corruption of the Soul!

We will be in death as we are in Life.
Our Faith is Eternal,
Our Will unwavering,
Our Hearts Pure!

Praise be to Crowa!
Glory to the Seven!

A Sermon on the Threats to Ithron

Delivered Pre-Battle on Bone Island, 1st Springsdawn

Lady Crowa,

The Land is in Darkness
We will light it with your grace

The people are afraid
We will give them strength

The churches are embattled
We will give them hope

The adventurers are divided
We will give them unity

Through us, your holy warriors,
Arda will be free
From Tyranny
From Oppression
From Beasts
From Abominations

The land will bathe in the glory of the Seven!

To inspire those around you

People of ithron and of the free world, hear these words.

Ahead of us we face perils untold, the promise of death and pain lurks in the shadows of our future.But we are the mighty warriors of the holy land, we are blessed of the gods and mighty of arm.Whatever paltry peril cowers ahead shall do nothing but fall at our feet in the presence of our might.

It is simply a wall to be broken through, but if we work together and if we are brave and true to one another, my brothers and sisters in arms. We shall claw victory from this day, and from many more days ahead. For we have it within ourselves to be mightier than we ever felt possible.

Brothers and sisters join me, praise the gods names that they may grant us strength.

For lost souls

Lady Crowa, light of my world.
Upon this land many roam who have not found rest.
They have served their life, oh mighty lady
They have walked more than they should
They have been tattered and abused by evils and darkness.
May they find rest lady of the meek
May you take them into your warm embrace
Praises unto the lady.

When hope is gone

Crowa,

Goddess of protection and my most merciful benefactor,all around me is darkness, all around me is loss and sorrow, all around me is lamentation and hopelessness.

Most mighty and holy lady crowa, look upon me now. I pray that you deem me worthy to receive your great gifts, grant unto me the power and conviction to push on.

To push on up the hill, through the marsh and into the breach.To stagger forwards when my legs will carry me no further, to grasp my weapon in your name. And through that final gift to you gain favour in your eyes.

Lady crowa, the path ahead of me is dark, but through the divine inspiration of your teachings I shall push on.

For your glory, for your honour, for those to whom I am sworn to protect and for those who know me not. I am ever your servant, and as such I shall bring your glory upon my enemies.

Praises unto the lady

Upon the death of another

Lady Crowa, in weakness or in strength we bear your image.
We pray for those we love who now live in a land of peace,
Where the light of memory is dimmed, where the familiar lies unknown, where the beloved become as strangers.
Hold them in your everlasting arms,
And grant to those who care
A strength to serve, a patience to persevere, a love to last, and a peace that passes human understanding.
Hold us in your everlasting arms,today and for all eternity;
Praises unto the lady

Let thy motherly hand, we beseech thee, be over us; let thy most Holy Spirit be with us; let thy good Archons have charge of us; with thy loving kindness defend us as with a shield, and either bring us out of our peril in safety, with a heart to show forth thy praises for ever, or else sustain us with that glorious hope, by which alone thy servants can have victory in suffering and death.

Praises unto the lady

Confession

ALMIGHTY and most merciful Lady; We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts. We have offended against thy holy laws. We have left undone those things which we ought to have done; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health in us. But thou mighty lady have mercy upon us, miserable offenders.

Spare thou those, Lady Crowa, who confess their faults. Restore thou those who are penitent; That we may hereafter live a righteous, and graceful life, To the glory of thy holy Name.

Praises unto the lady

Lich in Berwickshire

Lich in Berwickshire

From the journal of Epona, Rose of Crowa

1. Its name should not be said as it summons its power to the speaker

2. It had disappeared but came back in the 6th month of 995. It had been belived gone in s.992 but he was released again by the party that retrieved the Scales of Sidhe. A demon called Yosseroth did ritual on a book and the lych reappeared. Sir Jhani foresaw this but judged the scales of sidhe of enough value to do this. the book given by a demon – the knowledge demon which according to Obediah had helped before [andthrax became lich due to treachery but was eventually destroyed by a scheme of eldritch happenstance, revenants of the original party helped.] why did the knowledge demon set this up?

3. It can cast magics at great distance.

4. It is served by a wraith who claims that his power is greater than that of the gods.

5. The lich tries to corrupt people to his service to do this he blocks all sense of the god and tries to persuade the victim to his service when he tried this with Blodeuwedd of Sidhe, she refused, she was magically forced to attack us.

6. A Guard named Arran was not so strong. He yielded, his heart burst out yet he stood up and attacked us, after he was taken down the lich appeared to force us to heal him. The guard then spoke of the power of the lich.

7. This lich can also strip the skin of a mans leg at a long distance. This requires more healing then a mere bandage.

8. It can cast illusions, can make a man belive that he has worms in his heart and make things appear in wounds, and make people appear to look strange. It made the symbol of my faith appear to bleed.

9. Whilst I was wounded he appeared before me and pulled out my heart and squeezed it before my eyes. This happened also to Vincent of Tralda. I also saw this image in the dream plane.

10. His name spoken on the wind as far afield as esca summoned by a minion in vicinity of a Longstorian shrine with a holy book. The minion was killed for its pains, wanted holy item – then lich tried to kill others – enchanted poisoned diseased sword. got the book. What was this book? Some relic of Longstor?

11. I went to lirron to prevent an undead army being raised and given to it. It needed the banner of the last legion of axir to destroy the white witch had been the clan leader – we succeeded.

12. He can prevent priests from casting magicks by choking them, this may be him or may be one of his wraiths.

13. A man named Tosca appears to have some information he comes up now and again, he supports the lich, ogre skeletons are his.

14. Gromit challenged the lich – it declined to fight and magically forced Gromit to set fire to the local shrine which was totally destroyed.- the fire was uncontrollable. Gromit given a quest to find knowledge of how to destroy the lich. Also rumoured that the lich was connected with the incident at the rolborian shrine where two men attempted to destroy the shrine, but were killed by H.F. Simon.

15. After attacks where book was gained, a man came and helped to heal. He remembered lich as power hungry man
 Would be found where lich was – no love
 Spoke of necessity to destroy – said no-one has seen full power
 Would recognise him + should not be named (deser. of tim, cloak, hood up) was _____from the lich – his powers are undead
 Said that he would be around when the lich was – he wishes that the lich should not have it all its own way.

16. There is a mission to mountain ebb territory tonight to recover the grimblade. If successful then this is the first step to destroying the lich. If not then chances are reduced as Mortex will die if she fails and only a priest of karach can recover this item.

17. Rituals done to deny power of land to lich. This suggested by the dragon. This seemed to work yet it angered him and his minions have destroyed the shrines of Newcroft. The undead could enter holy land – the Scales of Sidhe saved that temple, no other was spared. Hopefully he is now weak enough to be destroyed. Gromit was lost to the mission, these undead have influenced the area terribly since then.

A Vision of Swords

A Vision of Swords

Primate Elspeth

The vision began with the time I received the Crowablade but I felt the presence of My Lady as she gifted me Her Most Holy Sword… I felt pride and honour as I received it – perhaps even more than I did on the real occasion… However, the scene changed and I was kneeling before (I believe) The Emperor of Sharda and he gave me his sword – a massive two-handed sword that throbbed with power as I took it… demons fell on their knees in praises to me… I was to lead them into battle, we waited for a sign… After a time around the camping army, seven rifts appeared in the earth… 2 of these were filled with liquid, the others empty… My army divides itself around 4 of the 5 empty portals in waiting… I left with a hound and slept, the hound watched over me, the sword laid upon my chest…

I knew the sword was the Emperor’s sword and its power was absolute and could slay a God…

When I awoke I had a sense of waiting, the army and I… My hand was in pain and burned across the palm where I held the great golden sword…
