While in the city, upon hearing of the commotion of adventurers returning with wounded to the Halls, a copper-clad man would also approach the Halls, stopping inside the foyer and asking questions of the priestesses there rather than try to go any further.

In the time after that, it would spread from the Halls that the Quiet Guide had been returned from her kidnapping. Her appearance seemed marred by new wounds that for some reason were not mended, but it would not be long before it became apparent she was returning to her life...now followed by the Ruby Rose wherever she went on the grounds of The Halls of Inner Light.

Quiet Guide Dove Starglow is taking a brief leave of absence for a tenday to rest from her recent kidnapping with family and friends. The Halls is expected to continue on as usual in absence of the council member and anyone seeking the Quiet Guide herself is welcomed to leave a message ((PM)) for her to read upon her return.

It would be some time since anyone would have seen Adelaide van de Saer, the Sunite priestess. She was never witnessed leaving Baldur's Gate with hers and Luke Darius' young daughter but certainly cannot be found within the city. Should anyone inquire at the Darius Holding Company or the Halls of Inner Light, it would be stated that she and the child are doing well with no further details easily given.

In the early evening of the 27th of Eleasis, the Quiet Guide entered the Halls of Inner Light clinging to the arm of her lover and called a gathering of available acolytes and priestesses of the Halls of Inner Light. In an unsteady voice, the scarred elven woman gave a farewell to the Halls. She told the people of the Halls that she would miss them, but that being on the council had lead her to unhealthy habits and ceasing to take care of herself to the point she found no time for her friends, family, or her lover. It had gotten bad enough that she had become physically unwell. She passed her keys to the Halls to a member of the Ruby Rose and gave a final quiet farewell before leaving the gathered group behind her and ostensibly going to find time to recover her health and wits.

The Rose

The lily has a smooth stalk,
Will never hurt your hand;
But the rose upon her brier
Is lady of the land.

When with moss and honey
She tips her bending brier,
And half unfolds her glowing heart,
She sets the world on fire.

There’s sweetness in an apple tree,
And profit in the corn;
But lady of all beauty
Is a rose upon a thorn.

When with moss and honey
She tips her bending brier,
And half unfolds her glowing heart,
She sets the world on fire.



(Christina Rossetti)


An announcement is made by the Halls of Inner Light that the former High Lady of Sune, the paladin Juno Serra, has moved on to another temple and that the priestess Adelaide van de Saer will take her place as High Lady of Sune.

A ceremony took place within the multi-faith temple to music and song dedicated to Lady Firehair.

After the song, Adelaide addressed those who had gathered, standing at the head of the altar with a bright countenance. Dressed in flowing red cloth, the Sunite revealed much of the intricate tattoos in Celestial script on her skin. As she spoke, her voice carried clearly in the large hall.


"All of you who my heart sings for, I wish for you to carry a message far and wide. In struggling times, we need the bright stars among us to shine more than ever. To guide us and not make us lose our way in the oncoming darkness. A lone star will shine bright but together we would shine brighter still."

"Those devoted to the loving goddesses..."


"Sune - the Lady of Love"

"Selune - the Moonmaiden"

"Lliira - the Joybringer"

"Hanali Celanil - the Heart of Gold"

"Angharradh - the One and the Three"

"Sheela Peryroyl - the Green Sister"

"Sharindlar - the Lady of Life and Mercy"

"Eldath - the Goddess of Singing Waters"

"Lurue - the Unicorn Queen"



"...are welcome with open arms. As are any to the Halls of Inner Light who carries peace and harmony with them."


Adelaide spread her arms out in a welcoming gesture with a soft smile on her lips. She then recited a few words;

"Be as a lamp unto them that walk in darkness, a joy to the sorrowful, a sea for the thirsty, a haven for the distressed, an upholder and defender of the victim of oppression."

The fingertips of her right hand brushed against her lips in a kiss before her hand swept out over those gathered, granting them Sune's blessing.


Several other hymns were then sung dedicated towards the other goddesses and the cause of the Halls of Inner Light. The others on the Council are currently Thalornor Danya of Sharindilar (NPC), Goldheart Tia'tae (NPC) of Hanali Celanil and Greenfoster Lily of Sheela Peryroyl (NPC).



((Not an IG event due to the NPCs it would require & RL holidays! Feel free to have RPed being present. Anyone allowed in Baldur's Gate is welcome at the Halls of Inner Light as long as they adhere to the temple rules (weapons can be RPed as handed over to guards or be peace-bonded). The guild page etc will see some changes after New Year.))

A letter was delivered to the Halls of Inner Light by a pageboy who had sprinted there from the nearby Temple of the Watchful Shield. He tarried until a response was given for him to return back to his sender.

Adelaide offers the pageboy some refreshments while she pens a reply, which is then given over.

Wed Jan 30, 2019 5:59 pm
A tall, stoic man who looks much too old for his age might be seen escorting a young lad of six or seven into the Palace District of Baldur's Gate. His clothes are tidy but threadbare; his expression is courteous but in a state of world-weariness. One of his calloused hands grips the small boy's fingers reassuringly. The boy, oddly clutching a fine fur cape around his frail body, tries to emulate the man's gait. However, he is wracked with coughing fits every so often, slowing down their progress through the streets toward the Halls of Inner Light.
The boy and man are recieved within with warmth, appearing to have been expected.


A proper announcement about the Midwinter Charity Ball is put up within the Halls of Inner Light and sent out to various groups and organizations.

//OOC: Sunday 3rd February at 20:00 GMT.
Ducal Palace is in the Palace District. Attendance paid at the door.

Anyone who can cover attendance and is dressed adequately are welcome! Rumour would state that armor is not considered formal wear!

Silvainstephane would have been informed of that the High Lady of Sune would speak with him once she was free. The meeting took place later in the day.

It is rumoured that someone paid for the attendance at the Midwinter Charity Ball of all Ilmatari clergy at the temple of Ilmater and the orphanage. The Halls of Inner Light then extended it to all followers of the Broken God. [OOC: Announce if your character is an Ilmatari at the door, appropriate attire still necessary!]


The High Lady could be seen last evening walking with hurried steps to the Flaming Fist Headquarters.


In the morning goods are carried to the Ducal Palace and members of the temple are seen busying themselves with decorating the ballroom. Those who paid attention would notice several garlands with leaves and flowers carried through the streets from the temple which certainly would not grow and flower in the current season.

The Midwinter Charity Ball held at the Ducal Palace is said to have been a success with many attending and several generous donations made.

The Halls of Inner Light releases an announcement,

We express our gratitude to the generous donations made at the Midwinter Charity Ball. It is our hope that we can use these gifts for the betterment of the city.

We would like to purchase lands and plant gardens, donating it to the city for the enjoyment of all. In these gardens, we wish to include the war memorials which have deteriorated. With the undead in recent years which swept through the lands and managed to break through the city walls... the lands suffered. Greenery and flowers wilted and not all has regrown.

It is saddening that the memorials of those who gave their all to our beloved city, still stand on ground that is tainted - ground that has not regrown. It is therefore our hope that we can make a change to that. To honour those who have fallen and honour our city.

Thank you for supporting our vision - which we hope is also yours.


Long live the Dukes, long live Baldur's Gate
