Word of ILMATER
HOME: His home is on Celestia and he is also associated with Tyr and Torm. Also known as The Broken God or the Crying God.
ETHOS: Help all who hurt, no matter who they are. The truly holy take on the suffering of others.
SYMBOL: Two broken and bound hands, or other representation of human suffering, including tattoo of a tear below they eye.
CLERGY: Priests of Ilmater are known as Ilmatari and particularly gear their work towards the wounded and dying, homeless and suffering. They usually wear grey tunics and pray about six times a day, and often have brew potions to reach those they cannot help with Divine Magic.
FAVOURED WEAPON: The Open Hand (unarmed strike)
TEMPLES: They do not favour large temples but work throughout the land, taking refuge where they may. All Priests of Ilmater are welcomed in Temples of Tyr and Torm.
RITUAL: They do not have any designated Holy Days but in times of great need may request a Plea of Rest (a ten day period during which time Clerics may have respite from the strict dictates of Ilmater in order to prevent extreme suffering or emotional exhaustion. During this time, Clerics are permitted to do things that Ilmater would normally frown upon, without atonement or punishment).
MONKS AND SAINTS: There are more monks and saints serving Ilmater than most other faiths. Many of these gain special favour by devotion to strict vows, e.g. Vows of Poverty, Purity and Peace.
