The Long Night
For as long as anyone can remember, as dusk begins to set in on the 31st Day of The Spirit Moon, a night of true terror begins for the inhabitants of Adraveth.
Dark horrors stalk the woods and those of faith find their connections severed from their respective Gods or Goddesses. Those who follow the Spirits find themselves seemingly abandoned as well. Curiously, those who follow the God of Lies find themselves with a connection still in place.
Many have called this night The Deity’s Eclipse while the tribesmen have called it Spiritsdeath.
None seem to know why their connections to the Divine and Spirits falter, but all can agree that tonight, perhaps more than any other night, is a time for people to come together and protect one another. It is not unheard of for several families to spend the eve together under a single roof, with their doors locked and barred, and the sounds of unspeakable horrors wailing outside.
Nothing one sees during the Eclipse can be trusted, and travel during the eve should be seriously limited for the safety of oneself and others.
The Scroll and Dragon has been officially offered as a place of respite for those seeking to gather together during this Deity’s Eclipse, in the hopes that those without a place for safe haven might find some there. Those seeking shelter may freely spend the night within her walls.
(Directive: If you are a DEDICATED Cleric or Shaman, from 5:30PM EST October 31st, you will find yourself completely severed from any Divine or Spirit connections, and will be unable to cast any spells, or use any abilities that rely on Divine or Shamanic connection. This will leave you feeling truly awful, since such a large portion of who you are has been effectively severed. Should you choose to attend Tavern Chat at any point, please roleplay these effects accordingly. These effects end at 7:00 AM November 1st.
Please feel free to elaborate on any odd sightings your character may have had during this time while roleplaying in Tavern Chat, within reason of course. It’s a night of horror. Please remember, however, there is NO COMBAT ALLOWED within the Tavern Chat without SPECIFIC cast direction.)
Remember, you may not enter unless your Character has attended at least one live in-game event at our campsite in Sparta, New Jersey.
