    Maybe it's Lupus? I don't know.

    Edit: Jokes aside, contact @Elianon, I think I saw his name on QW recently.

    During the Worldreaver event, Lupus ended up in a coma and His Order was dissolved. He's still listed as one of the active Pantheon because there is an opportunity in future for someone to do an event around Lupus, but so far as Divine go that you can follow, offer to, and join an Order of, He's not one.

    There is no Order for Lupus, just a pre-order clan.

    It's an empty godrole at present, so until a new god player fills it, it's unlikely to have much happen.
    - (Eleusis): Ellodin says, "The Fissure of Echoes is Sarathai's happy place."
    - With sharp, crackling tones, Kyrra tells you, "The ladies must love you immensely."
    - (Eleusian Ranger Techs): Savira says, "Most of the hard stuff seem to have this built in code like: If adventurer_hitting_me = "Sarathai" then send("terminate and selfdestruct")."
    - Makarios says, "Serve well and perish."
    - Xaden says, "Xaden confirmed scrub 2017."

    Agree.

    There are a few places that seem to need some divine attention/participation rather desperately and have gone without for a very long time indeed...

    I miss Lord @Scarlatti, and Lord @Phaestus. No offense meant, but I'd give up Lord @Sartan, Lady @Aurora, or Lord @Deucalion ; for either of them back. Of course, if all five were active, that would be a plus!

    But then Mhaldor would be back to having zero active patrons. Not sure that would be beneficial.

    That's a weird statement given that the players behind the gods choose their roles. 

    That would be like if you were told, upon character creation, that yes, we understand that you have the desire to play an Eleusian Druid who can often be found in his grove because even the village feels too civilized for him and you've thought this character out pretty well going into it, but we have enough forestals so instead you're going to be playing a Mhaldorian alchemist who really loves fighting because that's what we feel the game needs at the moment.

    I like Prospero but if you refer to anyone other than Phaestus as Big P you're wrong.

    Don't mean to shit in anyone's cornflakes, but we need a Babel 200x more than we need a Lupus.

    With an active Babel, every major theological faction would have a Divine driving the conflict. Might be Achaea's golden age for a few months/years.

    On a related note: is there an easy way to find out which orders/gods are active?

    Not really. All orders are active, though membership levels tend to drop off over time without an active divine. As far as divine go, you'll just have to ask around.

    Off the top of my head, we've got Artemis, Prospero, Twilight, Sartan, Aurora, Deucalion, Aegis, Gaia, and maaaaaaybe Lorielan?
    Huh. Neat.
  • KyrraKyrra AustraliaMember Posts: 4,866 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Apart from asking around, not really.

    Some Orders are still able to induct despite not having an active Divine around, but there's a fair few without induction privs which is crippling on so many levels. It's hard to grow interest in Orders, especially the smaller ones, when progression is limited.

    @Zaeden I was told this about.. seven months ago when I decided I want to become an Aegean. I suppose I got exceptionally lucky with the timing, but don't let it deter you.

    My gut tells me that Babel or Lupus are the next god roles to be filled, now that we have Sartan and Twilight back. But I could be entirely wrong, it's just a hunch.

    When Lupus fell into a coma, the Order was technically dissolved.
    There are no shrines. Only Rahum, as far as I know, is still able to offer to Lupus due to a kris.
    At first the Order attempted to continue by converting the OOC clan into the 'old order' to continue as a secondary order to him incase he returned and started a new one. Only one new member was inducted after that - Rispok, because he was so close already and we all loved him to bits, which is the nature of induction in the pack.
    When people try to join, I usually tell them it's not likely to happen because joining a used-to-be order with no patron just plain sucks and is not fair to them.
    Lupus can be visited and prayed over/to in the public area of the temple. You may find items left on the ground by those who miss him - please leave them there.

    If you're more curious about before all of that, here is some information.

    Leadership structure traditionally existed at three levels - one Alpha, one Beta, and three Elders.

    While there was no official, set-in-stone alliance or rivalry, Lupus was partial to Phaestus. He was patron of the Arcanists, the Druids, and Oakstone. He was not fond of Agatheis.

    The Lupine Pack would be the official, you-can-join-this Order, and the were-beasts in LHG were told to be his followers he bestowed his gift on for their prowess and loyalty, so they were considered to be his greater Order.

    Grimaldrin was the Captain of the Werewolves, Lupus' personal hunting partner, and tutor and vendor to the pack. He died when Lupus fell. The Order's windcutter is named The Grimaldrin.

    As far as I could tell, most thought of him as a forestal god, except the forestals. His place in nature was in the beasts. There are five beasts you can still find outside the grounds that he held close to his heart - a hunting cat named Archana that was given to him by the Arcanists, and four wolves in Northreach Forest (one each black, white, brown, grey).

    His followers' goals were to take down the biggest and scariest prey they could, and often threw their lives at impossible odds just for the thrill of trying. He looked down on dragons and typically did not want them unless their love of xp didn't stop them from doing the hold-my-beer shit the rest of the pack did, like die 10 times in a row and keep going back for more. The difference between hunting and bashing was that bashing would give you levels and hunting was more likely to take your levels away.
    Kris's got reset during the last event so likely he can't anymore.
