Game lore

Vynora's Converting Speech

What is this?

Have you ever asked yourself that question?

Vynora, our goddess and guide, will help you seek the answer to that ancient riddle, just as we help her in her quest to know everything.

Many secrets has she gathered, and we who call ourselves Seekers will be the first ones to learn.

What is a Man? What is a Woman? What lies in darkness of the Void? Questions need answers!

Seekers strive after excellence. We seek the truth in all things. We will go anywhere in our attempts to find it.

True knowledge also brings us power. Power over self, but also power over others.

Our gathered experience tells us that the best for all is to use that knowledge with care.

Therefore most of us are peaceful and strive after a calm and orderly way to gather knowledge.

Welcome to join the followers of Vynora!


Vynora's Inscription (at the Altar of Three)

Seeker! I am the Water and the Wind.

A bowl is my symbol.Have you ever asked yourself the Questions? I will help you find the answer to the Ancient Riddles, if you help me.

My knowledge is vast, but I need to know the last parts! We all must know! What are you? What lingers in the darkness of the Void?

Seek excellence. Seek the truth in all things. Go anywhere in your attempts to find it.

True knowledge also brings you power. Exercise that power with care, or it will hurt you like the snake who bites its tail.

Too many secrets are hidden by the other gods, and none will they reveal. This cannot be.

Flow with me!
