The Black Abbey RP

Unread post by AsuraKing »

As construction continues within the Abbey, most of the rubble has been removed, the dark interior lit by numerous new sconce's and torches. Many faces venture down into the depths of the Abbey throughout the days and nights, some proudly wearing the black fist of Bane while others wearing simple robes and a skull faced mask. Templar guards remain stationed at the two entry points, not stopping anyone from venturing into the Abbey, instead those adventurers that venture down at the direction of Mags to clean are offered an extra pouch of coin for their services. At the mid of night, during the holy hour of Bane, visitors are instructed at entry to remain silent as to not interrupt the prayers of the faithful.

After having purchased several sets of plate armor from a merchant above, the Vigilator can be seen making his way down into the heavily under construction Abbey with his newly acquired sack of clanking metal.

On the 12th of Eleint 1356 a gathering took place within the Black Abbey under Soubar. It's said a "diverse" group of followers of the Dark Three as well as the Maiden of Pain congregated for a ceremony within it's dark stone walls. Lead by Lord Imperceptor Vyshasa, each of the high priests/priestesses were called forth to give a brief but concise statement of their faith's purpose among the gathered mortals.

Lord Imperceptor Vyshasa spoke first:
"Bane rules those in life or will rule them if not yet. Tyranny is the only government for beings mortal."
With a call from the Imperceptor, Whipmistress Sorsha Komulov stepped forward:
"Yes, tyranny must rule the living, but what is tyranny without the threat of pain!
We shall see to it that its power work with those that rule!"
With a crack of her whip the Whipmistress stepped back and the Lord Imperceptor spoke once more:
"But pain can only motivate so much a mortal... Eventually, there is the state of the dead that comes for all of us."
The cold pale figure of Withering Lady Aliyaah el Myrkul yn Tulmon stepped from the shadows to the front of the pulpit.
"When the mortal dies or what they look to when dead is the domain of my master. Myrkul, the Lord of Bones rules those that have passed in cooperation with the tyrant of the living and the pain that moves them."
As the Myrkulite stepped back the Imperceptor cried out once more:
"I, Lord Imperceptor Vyshasa of the Church of Bane hereby initiate the proceedings to open this Black Abbey of the Dark Three and Pain."
As the various faiths announced their acceptance of the Imperceptor's decree, a series of awkward looks were exchanged among the faithful... Something or someone was missing... That is, until the Whipmistress spoke once more, a sinister smile across her face.
"But there is another, isn't there."
The Whipmisstress looked to Lord Imperceptor Vyshasa as he once more stepped forward, announcing the arrival of the final High Priest... High Matriarch Amelyssan the Blackhearted! Stepping from the shadows she spoke:
"Indeed my friends of the Dark and Pain, Death is the bridge between us all."

"I High Matriarch Amelyssan The Blackhearted of the Church of Bhaal will see to it that our faiths are bridged with the act of Death itself. And most nobly of Murder."
From there the ceremony continued, though none dare speak of what transpired following. However one thing is certain, the Black Abbey has officially been sanctified under the gaze of Bane, Bhaal, Myrkul and Loviatar.
