Campaign of the Month: January 2013
DANgerous Kalamar 4
The canon of the Home Foundation, known simply as “The Home,” contains no pictures of animals or people. Its only designs are simple geometric patterns used sparingly to break up longer texts. Its few pages contain clear print on faint lines.
The Home has no apparent order. Instead of organized chapters, it contains essays, parables and vignettes. The pieces have been carefully selected by a cleric of great skill (and no doubt inspired by the Holy Mother) so that when read in order, they paint a beautiful and clear image of the faith’s beliefs. The cleric wrote the pieces in a simple, clear manner, making this canon one of the easiest to read.
Forbidden acts mentioned in The Home include adultery, the mistreatment of children and laziness. The Holy Mother’s canon strongly discourages divorce, lewd behavior and selfishness. Clerics are encouraged to have large families, to make no distinction between natural and adopted children, and to work hard to support their families.
The faith monitors prices for The Home to ensure that it is available, but that the scribes who copy it earn enough for their families. It costs 35 gp and is available at any temple of the faith.
