Celebrant is the triumph you feel in victory. He is the adoring crowd cheering a master bard. He is the welcome cup of tea after a grueling day in the fields. The Church of Celebrant ensures that people see his hand in every moment of pride and passion in their lives. Achievements should be celebrated, milestones witnessed, and the dead given a fitting tribute recalling their finest hours. The Church therefore seems like more of an event-organizing group. Different areas can expect different results from ignoring this service. in most areas disgustingly dressed and loud people will gatecrash any event where the Church was not given at least a token invite, whereas in some regions there are rumours that sometimes couples go missing on their honeymoon if no prayers were given to Celebrant on their Wedding day.
Groves with Dryadic trees are just as common as luxurious temples as places of worship to Celebrant. One thing that unites them is that they are as well-appointed as the clergy can afford, usually with at least some ornamentation and furniture they have made themselves.
The Inquisition of Celebrant, as far as it seems to exist, is a loosely organised collection of agents. Some devote their time to freeing slaves, and these “renegades” are a thorn in the side of the Vendicsal’s piracy operations. Others are known to make pilgrimage to the sites of violent conflict, and “set free” the tormented Phantoms that haunt them. Such mindless, aggressive Strangers are bound unchanging to one action, with nothing to take pride in and no passion but rage.
The Church of Celebrant believes that all should be free to achieve things they can be proud of. Whereas Aspirant is about self-improvement for its own sake, Celebrant is about having pride in whatever you accomplish, and showing that to the world. Celebrant’s church detests slavery as it makes your achievements the “property” of someone else. Other than that, they make little judgement on what acts you pride yourself on. One of the greatest gifts which can be given to Celebrant is a public performance dedicated to him. The approval of the crowd and the pride of the actors in their performance is a demonstration of Celebrant’s gifts.
