Kiputytto - Suomi - Priests - Gods

Notes and description of the God.

Kiputytto is the Goddess of Sickness, also called the Mother of the Plague. She appears to the world most often as a black skinned, twisted old crone with a scarred face. The dedicated followers of her church seem to have all suffered from some wasting disease and bear the marks on their faces and bodies. Twisted hands and feet or facial scars are the most common forms of presenting their piety.

Duties of the Priesthood

Description of what the Priesthood's overall goals and activities are centered around.

Kiputytto's priests are often distrusted by those not familiar with Suomi traditions. The Goddess is seen as strong for living through sickness and plague and her worshipers seek to emulate her. For those who are casual believers it could mean leaving a scar from an incident. For true believers that can be actively desiring such scars or more. Visible signs of the suffering a believer has been through always inspire others. Those that are the most powerful who are then afflicted bring more notice for their acceptance and embracing of the faith.

Priests see their calling as being guides for their flocks to help them embrace or affect their suffering. The world is full of suffering and those that embrace it will be the strongest after enduring it. Often the priest's preachings include detailed stories of a particular individual and how they came through their struggles.

One side effect of this search for suffering is that outsiders can believe such priests must be evil to assist with suffering and the idea that any healing spells are only reversed. This is also something that calls to non-priest worshipers, most notably Necromancers. This focus on suffering and survival through deeper and deeper suffering has lead some down the path to creating Undead? and even Lichdom.
