Dogma

Alcestis is the patron of those who work dark magic and those who would work magic for gain. She promotes the use of spells and magic items, and tells her followers that magic is the key that unlocks wealth, power, and all desirable things. She preaches the joys of abundance, but warns against the folly of waste. Any good reaper or hunter, she says, leaves a few seeds and a few fauns for next year.

History

Divine Servants

Church of Alcestis

Alcestis's services are held outdoors under the starry sky.

Worshipers and Clergy

Alcestis has few clerics, and most of those are cleric/wizards or cleric/sorcerers. They prefer blue -white garb (the color of moonlight). Her clerics usually work in solitude, performing magical research, making items, and searching out legendary treasures. They form cells of cultists to pursue their schemes on a larger scale.

Temples and Shrines

Temples to Alcestis serve as bases and sanctuaries for her clerics. They are always well hidden, often located in depths of dark, haunted forests.

Holy Texts

Writings sacred to Alcestis tend to be easily portable, written in simple language and often containing references to hidden places and roads to a shrine.

Holidays

Dark Night, also called Black Night, Star Night, is observed on the 7th of every month. It is a holy night for the church of Alcestis because the moon is so easy to observe.
