Now that we have a player willing to play someone who worships Aaluran, I need to flesh this guy out.
So far, his symbol is the bull. He is a God of Fertility, Deviance, Taboos, and Sexual Liberation. The bulk of his followers come from a very Mediterranean culture.
THE WIVES OF AALURAN: When one prays at the Temple of Aaluran, he in a sense becomes the Bull. At the Temple are clerics/holy women (not always the class Cleric) who are considered to be the Wives of the Bull. During prayer, the devout become their temporary husbands.
THE CHILDREN OF AALURAN: These are the children born of the unions between the Devout and the Wives. Within the Temple and within the Kingdom of Salvana (whose patron is Aaluran) the children are considered sacred, a blessing of the Bull. Elsewhere, their reception is everything from indifference to outright shunning. In the Kingdom of Umeria, they are known as the Bastards and their mothers the Whores of Aaluran. While being raised at the Temple, the Children are given a basic education (what a typical adventurer might have) and then have several choices as to how to spend the rest of their lives. Many stay with the temple, others see military as their only chance at a future. Most take up adventuring at some point. Still others take steps to find their Seed Father, hoping he might give them a better life.
THE CLERICS OF CONSENT: Aaluran has one rule with his deviance. You better be sure whoever you are doing whatever to is okay with what you are doing to them. This is why the Clerics of Consent fight. There is a joke amongst my group of friends that these guys are basically Temple of Aaluran: SVU.
So am I crazy for creating this god? Any suggestions for the Bull?
