Shrines - Who, What, Where?

Post by Virgil Vikos on Fri Jul 15, 2011 12:26 pm

What spirits have Shrines at the Caern, and where are they at? Is there some sort of central location or are they all around? And what do they look like? Little help?

The shrines are generally scattered around, though most if not all are in the real world. Each one is different, though most are fairly simple. Wasp's shrine is a stone carved to look like a wasp nest, with some metal wasps attached to it, hanging up in a tree somewhere, as an example.

GF Thunder probably has the most visible shrine, or at least the most visited one. I think Falcon, Wasp and Mammoth still have shrines somewhere. I'm not aware of any others. The best way to find out a full list would probably be to ask the alpha theurge.

I know for our pack's part we have shrines for Wasp, Clashing Boom Boom, and Cockroach. Since Ryan actually made them he would know the where and what they look like part.

If searching is done In-Character, one can find Falcon's and Eagle's (downwind of the amphitheater -- those heads can get ripe) very close to the amphitheater. There are more-or-less private shrines to Aray, Osprey, and Chameleon in the second floor office of Mercy House.

Searching will also find shrines to Rat and Soulis, though I do not believe either has been tended to in quite some time. They're near where the Sacred Fire is/was.

Ryan has produced and maintains shrines to Fog, Wasp, Cockroach, Clashing Boom Boom, and Healing. They are in the general area of the Sacred Fire.

Fog: A wide and shallow round black metal basin on a pedestal accompanied by a large clay pitcher for holding water. When the air is cool, hot water can be poured into the shallow basin in order to produce 'fog' to honor the spirit responsible for the Caern existing as it does today.

Wasp: A flat hunk of stone that is chipped at to make it resemble a portion of a hive white being more durable than the real thing. Arranged are a number of representations of wasps, creatures of metal wires with thin legs, oval wings and prolonged 'stingers' poised for attack. They are positioned upon lengths of thicker and curved wire anchored in the stone 'hive', the supporting wire strong enough to leave them suspended in midair yet springy enough to allow them to bob about in the breeze to give them a dynamic appearance to the shrine. The metal wasps are arranged in a manner which suggests a chaotic cloud entirely devoted to the defense of its home from any angle of attack. The shrine rests in the low nook of a tree, where a real hive would be, secured with more wires to keep it from falling out if the wind blows too hard.

Cockroach: A Cockroach assembled from metal components with a pair of eyes made of clear and faceted orbs of glass tucked away in a reasonably concealed place. The shrine rests out of sight as Cockroaches tend to be but is still accessible to those who wish to make use of it. Accompanying the shrine is a simple plate of metal to give attending Garou a place to sharpen their nails, a sound that Cockroach finds pleasing.

Healing: A place established to honor the idea the Caern is based upon. A spot well sheltered by trees where people can gather in comfort and safety, with halved logs arranged in a circle to provide seating off the ground should it prove to be too damp or cold for sitting on the ground. At the center is placed an arrangement of larger stones to provide a sturdy pedestal. Within an opening in the stones rests a stocked metal first aid kit box. Atop the rocks rests a crude but effective stone bowl which will allow water to reside in its depths.

Clashing Boom-Boom: A large, broad stone pedestal rests to place offerings and trophies upon. Flanking the pedestal on its left is a long sword pointed downward and on its right is a real (but non-functioning as it is left out in the elements with the firing pin removed) rifle pointed upwards. Both weapons are attached to the pedestal to signify that they are part of the shrine and not for toying about with.

The location of Fog and Healing are pretty out in the open and easy to find as they are designed to be of use to the Sept at large. Cockroach will be nigh impossible to find unless one knows where to look or is told where it is, and Ryan will not be voluntarily disclosing its location to those outside of the Glass Walkers. Wasp is high enough up and tucked away that it may elude attention all together or look more like an art piece than a shrine. Clashing Boom-Boom is out of the way but is difficult to miss if one wanders about enough.

Now while I am disclosing this information OOCly upon request, it is up to those who wish to possess this information ICly to seek it out through IC means. If you want your character to know these things you'll be expected to work for that knowledge.

The question is more for my character, living at the Caern and exploring it through the day. He's been almost everywhere by now, but as there's no stickied posts on the forums or a list anywhere that I know of, it falls to st's or the other pc's to point them out to the character, which nobody really does in the middle of a scene. Unless they're private shrines, hidden away or disguised, there's no reason someone who spends any reasonable amount of time there wouldn't know of them. Sound reasoning, isn't it?

This post was also made with the IC intent of my character looking for them when he could, trying to form an understanding of his new home and it's surroundings. But unless he knew of a designated tour guide he'd just spend time looking. Which isn't so much a scene as me making a post that Virgil is wandering around looking for shrines and people posting OOC replies on which ones he finds. Bringing us back to this thread. I didn't intend on sounding rude or snarky, so if any of this comes off that way I apologize.

You know that Misha was warder at one point, so there's your in. If any PC knows the original lay of the land and the details right now, it's her.

The Shrine to Big Daddy Thunder is where Autumn showed you it was. For reference, it is 13 feet tall in the real. It is a large steel shield, emblazoned with his glyph (Autumn did it herself.) There are several bird feeders involved in the design. In the umbra, it is spattered with the blood sacrifices from the real.
