Den of Iniquity

Jump to: navigation, search

When you step into this large amphitheater, a handsome servant of the gender
of your choosing seems to appear out of nowhere and asks if you need anything.
The scent of your favorite food lingers in the air as your eyes adjust to all
the pleasing sights scattered around the temple. The expanse of items to
indulge your sinful nature could overwhelm you except for the fact you realize
that in the middle of this huge room stands a living altar of the god who
makes this all possible.
The Hydra Altar

Look ALTAR:
An enormous living altar of a hydra, a seven headed dragon, stands here in
the middle of the Den. Jeweled eyes from each colored head (Lavender, Green,
Orange, Blue, Red, Yellow, and LightBlue) stare at you with a sinful intent
aligned to Triston's beliefs. You notice the body curves into a throne where
a god could sit on it if he so desired and with a little imagination a few
other uses as well could be inspired upon it.

Holy Symbol: a red glowing Ankh
Long Desc: A loop of red glowing matter in the shape of a cross holds the key to Triston's
mortal sins.

Look NORTH:
Is this north? You're not sure, because the contents of the Den shift and
rotate depending on the desires of those who are inside. Even your own
desires change from moment to moment thus reshaping the contents of the Den.

Look EAST:
Is this east? You're not sure, because the contents of the Den shift and
rotate depending on the desires of those who are inside. Even your own
desires change from moment to moment reshaping the contents of the Den.

Look SOUTH:
Is this south? You're not sure, because the contents of the Den shift and
rotate depending on the desires of those who are inside. Even your own
desires change from moment to moment thus reshaping the contents of the Den.

Look WEST:
Is this west? You're not sure, because the contents of the Den shift and
rotate depending on the desires of those who are inside. Even your own
desires change from moment to moment thus reshaping the contents of the Den.
Something in the back of your mind tells you this must be the direction
out, but why would you wish to leave?

Look UP:
Why look up? What answers lay upwards that you can't find surrounding you?
If you are wondering what the ceiling looks like, don't bother because the
walls of the amphitheater stretch so far up, darkness is your only answer.

Look DOWN:
There are no answers at your feet. But if you are interested in the floor,
blood red rubies are set beneath a crystal clear substance that neither gets
scuffed or dirty. Must be magic, you conclude. Something tells you that the
rubies are set in some sort of pattern.

Look Rubies Pattern
A strange scene seems to be embedded to the floor, but how could a mortal be
able to see such a vision? As you gaze into the pattern of the rubies, the
room lifts you upwards and twists your body so you can see the whole scene.

Three sets of words are now visible to your eyes:
Delectatio Morosa
Gaudiam
Desiderium

Look Delectatio Morosa
A sinful thought one takes pleasure in.

Look Gaudiam
A dwelling on or taking pleasure from a sin already committed.

Look Desiderium
A desire for what is sinful.

Look Sins
Vanity, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Wrath, Greed and Sloth, these are the seven
major sins the world expects us to satisfy our wanton needs with. You can
look at each individual sin to get a taste of what it must be like to be
under its influence. Beware. Those who are not priests of priestess of
the sin may fall prey to the power the sin can wield.

Look Rules
1. Triston is god and will be obeyed.
2. Must follow TFC rules not only by the letter, but also by the spirit.
3. Character separation MUST be adhered too.
4. No using the 'g' (bloo) word or any of its hideous forms. Just think of
what aiding a bloo will do, if saying the word gets you punished.
5. A description must be worn on your character at all times and before
worship.
6. A sinner must choose one Sin to excel in. This is meant to help in
having fun and role-playing.
7. Anything not listed here that Triston determines to be rule worthy (see
rule 1)


Look Lavender headone Vanity
Vanity becomes you as you stare into the eyes of the first head of the
hydra. While you stare into the silver gleam of its eyes, a reflection
of yourself is mirrored back at you. A magical impulse overcomes you and you
begin to preen yourself and realize there is no one else here that looks as
handsome as you do.

Look Green headtwo Envy
Why should they have it all? You deserve everything. It's not fair they
have that ability. By rights, it all should be yours. Envy shrouds your
thinking, but it makes every bit of sense as it is your right, not theirs!
Doesn't that amulet belong around your neck?

Look Orange headthree Gluttony
This head stirs emptiness in your stomach as the power of Gluttony twinges
your soul. The banquet table appears to be closer and your body desires to
consume it all. Food, water, alcohol, and the fragments of magical dust in
the air are yours to be devoured.

Look Blue headfour Lust
A desire over inner control is temporarily lost as a heat swelters in your
soul. The touch of your personal servant awakens a new passion as they
hover over you tending to your needs. You Lust after the body, the mind and
the soul and to have it completely at this moment. Your fingers tremble at
the buttons of your shirt and before you can shift your gaze away you notice
it opened to your waist.

Look Red headfive Wrath
A seething glaze of anger covers your eyes. You sense a purpose of
destruction and Wrath against all those around you. Your body twitches and
aches to pull out your weapon and hurt something. Inspecting this head too
long will deliver you into a loathing rage you'll never recover from.

Look Yellow headsix Greed
Mine. Gimmie. It is yours and you know it. Yours! Take it! The power of
Greed seeps into your soul and it all should be yours. Your pouch has never
jangled at your waist any lighter than it does now. Take! Grab! Control!
It is yours.

Look LtBlue LightBlue headseven Sloth
You yawn. You must be tired. The eyes of this head call to your lazy and
Sloth-like nature. Someone calls your name, but you don't need to worry,
you can answer them later. Your arms and legs waver in the thick air while
your body slackens to the floor. It would be nice to rest here for a while.

Look Throne
In the crevice of the body, you can make out a faint outline of a throne.
The heads of the Hydra swim back and forth snapping at the vision of someone
trying to sit upon its back. Triston glides over to the throne and the
heads part and coil around him as in submission to his will.
