Symbology: All Trithereon Churches use the same symbol: The Rune of Pursuit. It has two forms. The more ornate form is used in Holy Symbols and most metal or wooden objects associated the Church. The simpler runic form is used on stonework and often on robes or vestments. These are not universal rules, however, as each Sect has its own preferences.
Description: Trithereon is depicted as a young man with red-gold hair, tall and well-built, wearing a chainmail shirt with clothes of blue or violet. He is armed with three magic weapons: a sword named Freedom’s Tongue; a spear called Krelestro, the Harbinger of Doom; and a scepter known as the Baton of Retribution. He is also often appears with three summoned animals which serve him without question: Nemoud the Hound, Harrus the Falcon, and Carolk the Sea Lizard
Clergy: The Sword of Freedom is the organizational name of the combined Churches of Trithereon. Unlike many churches of the same scale, there is no overarching hierarchy; instead there are a number of Orders/Sects, each of which has a different focus due to the fact that the faith preaches individuality over any standardized doctrine. However, every Sect is allied with its brethren, and all follow the ideals of Freedom, Individuality, and the Right to Retribution.
Churches of Trithereon are rarely large or ornate, but practical, often including a place to stay for refugees. Hounds of some type are often about in numbers, particularly in the more rural churches, and a war dog trained by The Sword is a prized commodity as they are both loyal and independent of nature.
Clerics of Trithereon generally wear robes of dark blue or purple, with silver or golden trim. Golden-red cassocks bearing the rune of pursuit are worn for special ceremonies. They favor spears, swords, and clubs.
The only sect currently active in Dyvers is the Browncoats
Relations: Temporally, Churches of Trithereon often at odds with local governments, as their priests are rugged individualists, with little fear of questioning authority. In urban settings, Trithereon’s priests train locals in self-defense and weaponry, practice battle tactics, and recruit like-minded rangers and rogues to train the priesthood in covert conflict and “for the cause of individual liberty.” In rural areas, Trithereon’s priests often act as border skirmishers and spies (where appropriate). They also work with demihumans and woodsmen, keeping watch against evil humanoids and despots. Urban and rural priests both closely watch Lawfully-aligned religions lest they gain too much power.
Among the Divines, Trithereon’s love of freedom sometimes causes him to come into conflict with other good deities, such as Pholtus andHeironeous. Bralm hates Trithereon for his promotion of individualism. He is a strong ally of the quasi-deity Krovis, and he is allied with Kurell and Pelor as well. Trithereon is pleased with Lydia’s philosophy of individual empowerment through learning.
