"Can I help you, sir?  A blessing?  Maybe in need of some medical attention?"  The priest is a burly man who would look more at home in the woods than in a temple.

Aldon grins, "Well, I fear it's well past the time for medical attention. Though, a blessing might not be out of the question. We'll see. I actually came here hoping someone would know something about ghosts and other restless spirits. I've heard the Mother is all about second chances, but I'm not sure that's quite what she has in mind. I'm afraid I'm a little out of my depth though, and need some help from an expert."

Temple: Temple of the Mother
A red-haired half-elf walks into the Temple, and makes a devotion at the shrine. After taking some private time to commune with The Mother, she stands to go consult any of the clergy that is available.

"One moment miss."  Emmett says to Tanda after she finishes her worship.

"I could certainly come to inspect, however our brothers and sisters of Takri would be better suited to your task.  I believe brother Wyn Roth may be capable of helping, though I'm unsure where to find him.  He does side work adventuring, so possibly O'Malleys."

"What can I help you with miss?"

"In all truth, I am looking to strengthen my tie to The Mother. She has long since granted me the Boon of speaking with animals, but I feel a need for improvement to serve her well. I already care for her animals, and plants in a limited capacity, and as a doctor I am creating second chances for many. But there is something inside which drives me to more. I cannot explain it."

Aldon thanks the priest and bows out. Seeing the priest helping someone else, he quickly exits from the temple to find what he was looking for elsewhere.

"Please, come in and meditate with me by the shrine.  This calling you are feeling has come to many of us who serve The Mother.  Not all are priests, and though I'm no master I can teach you what I know.  With time you may be capable of improving your connection to Her."

A burly unshaven human approaches Aeos.  His wears the vestments of a priest of The Mother.  "Thank you, good sir.  How may I be of service to you on this glorious day The Mother has provided?"

In reply to Emmett Bowman (msg # 20):

"I thank you. That's all I seek, at this time."

Emmett and Tanda pray in meditation at the shrine until the priest is pulled away by another visitor.  Tanda feels herself more deeply connected to The Mother and begins to feel The Mother speak to her through the nature present in this place.

"I have need to find a Governess, for two young boys, whose mother needs to apply her craft and the father is missing, I am undertaking an investigation to him find.

While doing this, the mother needs to have someone she trusts to watch th e boys, so I come to the Mother to see what is possible

Re: Temple: Temple of the Mother
"All things are possible through The Mother.  We do have several orphanages here in Valarez.  I'm not sure we could spare the women to watch these boys though.  I have another suggestion.  We employ professionals to train the orphans once they are old enough to learn a trade.  Are there any skills these boys may be lacking or look promising in?  We could send out someone to educate the boys, and act as a governess short term in the process."

"That might be the best solution.  I would say a tutor would appeal.
The choice of which subject is their strength I will leave to their mother.

I would like to meet with those available to tutor, and see if I might find a mix of candidates

"We work with many of those in the North Third who have their own offices and shops.  I could have one of the brothers make you up a list of those who are women.  Would that be suitable?"

Emmett waves one of the robed men praying at the shrine over.

Emmett instructs the brother on what is needed and the man makes his way to a side room in the temple.  "Do you need any prayers said to The Mother while we wait?  I'd be happy to offer them up to her."

Re: Temple: Temple of the Mother
When Tanda returns from the shrine, she seeks out Brother Bowman. "Brother, I heard Her voice. I felt a pull....like something has been offered. But I'm uncertain what it means." She pauses, then indicates the Temple. "Brother, the Mother represents life. I see art and representation of the values. But aside from the worshippers, I see no life. Would it strengthen the Mother's voice here if we had living things growing here? Perhaps an indoor garden? I'm sorry if I seem overbold, but it feels like the right thing."

Re: Temple: Temple of the Mother
"I splendid idea, sister.  The Mother has truly brought inspiration to you.  We keep a garden in the side plot next to the temple, but our shrine is nothing like others I have been to.  Surrounding ourselves for all forms of life pleases The Mother."

"I hope our fellow worshiper here does not mind me divulging some information about him.  He hopes to build a port to bring a surge in commerce for Valarez.  This too is life inspired by The Mother.  To build a thriving city is to give life to her.  We will pray on these tasks for hopes of gaining The Mother's blessing in both."


The brother returns with a list for Aeos.  "I took the liberty of listing only female members of our arrangement.  Each is listed under their respective area of expertise."

Aeos decides it is the will of the Mother, being here, with others, it is her calling.

"No mind at all Brother, it is a blessing."

The proprietor smiles, "Thank you Brother."

Aeos turns to his fellow supplicant and gives a slight bow to her, "I am Aeos Foldstone, pleased to meet you Sister."

"I'm sorry, brother. This wasn't a directive from the Mother, so far as I know. It was only a suggestion that made sense to me. I'm sorry if I gave you the wrong impression. But...if you wanted suggestions, I know a fair amount of lore concerning plants and their care. I'll talk to the brothers about this." The half-elven woman acknowledges Aeos with a half-curtsy. "A pleasure, Master Foldstone. I am Tanda Brightflower. I own and operate the Saddle Rack and Hoofers."

Re: Temple: Temple of the Mother
Emmett waits for a break in the conversation before addressing Tanda.  He places a gentle hand on her arm.  "The Mother speaks through many mediums.  Please, bring your skills to the temple when you are able."  With that Emmett returns to the shrine and his prayers.
