Brume ~ Goddess of Mist, Shadows and Stealth
Symbol – Misty Cloud and Dagger
Summary: In all the dark corners of the world, those who live their lives in the shadows worship the Goddess Brume. Renowned for her stealthy, slight of handed ways, Brume is said to be the most mysterious of the Gods. No one has ever seen her face and all those who tell of her remark that it was always covered by a veil of purples and blues: only her electric eyes peaking out from behind it. Her voice is said to be quiet and low, only heard by those she wishes to hear it. Some say she can even vanish in the blink of an eye, here one moment and gone the next.
Followers of Brume are spread far and wide, not generally hailing from any one area in particular. It it said that Brume followers can be found in all corners of the world, but just as the shadows themselves, they are always near by, but can never be caught.
The Sultanate of Sahir tends to worship Brume more openly and rigidly, with actual open temples to Brume found all over the cities of Sahir, beautiful polished rubies and sapphires dot these large ornate temples, filled with beautiful mosaics depicting their thoughts on Brume founding their nation.
Description of Church/Clergy: Clergy of Brume deal in secrets, being capable thieves, politicians, assassins, and masquerading as something else entirely. Churches of Brume (such as they are), are secret gathering places for the followers of Brume, protected by traps and riddles to ensure secrecy of the meeting. Temples of Brume may also double as assassin guild’s and information brokerages. If someone finds access to a hidden meeting spot or temple, they usually find a dead end such as a broom closet or stone wall.
No one knows what their armed clergy or clergy titles are, as the church is a vast network of secrets. Initiates are given little to no information, and no spy has ever found their way into the inner workings of the church. Anyone who ascends through the Church of Brume is usually sworn to secrecy, and if they divulge church secrets, are usually found dead.
Secrets are not for the weak of mind, and knowledge is power.
A shroud of shadows can shield the light.
Seek the truth hidden beneath the lies.
The shadows are mine, eliminate the invaders who trespass on my domain.
Example sins Brume of include but are not limited to:
