Marcela i Erigo is one of the current hosts, Marcela hails from the coast. She grew up amongst the traders and corsairs who berthed their ships there, bringing all that was best in the nation, and dealing with travellers from within and without the Empire. She speaks very little of her life before becoming the egregore preferring instead to focus on listening and encouraging the stories of others. What is known is that she has an extensive family, including a younger brother of about 11, and many Aunts and Uncles, that she was a corsair or sailor for her family and is no stranger to fighting (but has suffered a war wound that occasionally flares up) and that she has visited or dealt with [[Sumaah_Republic|Suumah]] sufficiently to speak the language for trade purposes.

Jaime fled with his younger brother to safety in [[Madruga]] but never really settled down: he developed a fascination with the sea that led to him being a [[corsair]], forever travelling over the oceans. Although at times he takes on all three of the faces of the egregore, it is the fiery emotions of Flame that burn brightest in him: he loves laughing, music, partying, and fighting. As he has forged links to more members of the nation through his roles as egregore, he is also starting to become Dust more often.

Revision as of 14:03, 1 March 2018

Egregores

  • Are the first point of contact for players in each nation
  • A source of plot in the nation
  • Get players involved in the plot and in the politics of the nation
  • Encourage the players to maintain the visual and thematic identity of each nation
  • Are the radio operator in each camp

Each nation has a single egregore spirit, created through ritual magic to represents the personification of the nation. The spirit may be present in more than one host body at any time. The ritual was created by the Brass Coast to ensure that the nations of the Empire retained their independent character and culture. In the game they act to encourage the players to maintain the visual and thematic identity of their nation.

The egregores are an effective channel for plot writers to deliver plot "news" to the players about what is going on in their nation. They work particularly closely with the player support team to try to help players get involved in the plot and also involved in the politics of the nation.

They are a point of contact for Profound Decisions crew for players in a nation and will have a covert radio. This radio is for emergency situations, for example, needing to contact first aid.

Some of the egregores are able to referee bindings and rituals. You can check with your egregore if they are able to do this. If you wish to approach your egregore for non-urgent out-of-character business, please respect their roleplay and the roleplay of the people they are interacting with. Do not interrupt people who are roleplaying with the egregore with an out-of-character question unless it is urgent. Obviously, for a genuine emergency, you should get their attention as quickly as possible.

Egregores are not there to make decisions for the nation or provide leadership or direction. They may take a role in their nation's elections - they may even vote, but their role is to support the nation, not to lead it.

Although any magician can open the Sentinel Gate, to take an entire nation through requires an egregore to use their link to the nation to take them all through.

Being an egregore requires some charisma and personal presence. The egregores do not have any real power in the nation so their influence primarily derives from what they can achieve through roleplaying. They need to be in touch with the politics of their nation to be able to get new players involved in it.
