Pracalam rose to prominance in an area to the North of the Royal Basin called Kern although how he arrived there is largely unknown the match seemed true. Kern was attacked on all sides by the physicalities of plague and by invading pillagers from the North along with political and magical ambitions of controlling various aspects of its mineral geography. Whilst Kern was in need the problems with controlling it and then saving the people within it became too expensive for the King of the day; Quintus Lionsgold. Kern was outcast from the Royal Basin and left to fend for itself and no doubt would have done save for several new arrivals.
The Eleven came to Kern anda mong them was Pracalam and through their power the woman that would come to lead the people was resurected. She had fought in the Rhygahrean wars, been killed and left for fodder, returned to life she styled herself the Baronness and through hard work and resolve she not only led the Kernish to happier times she also brought the Eleven into the fold of the faiths of the Royal Basin. From here Pracalam found his role and made his first Tharinos appearance in 2018 as a handsome young farmer come roadwarden and shared excellent banter with The One: Bethylak and from here on he embraced the role that he had fulfilled in his time in Kern.
Lord of the Harvest
Pracalam is husband to Yarrianne. His faith are hard working folk who mostly hail from the ranks of the smallfolk. Far from cities his priests roam the trade roads keeping them safe as they travel from farmstead to inn to charcoal burners camp. They ensure that people are fed, supplied and safe and that they are not being prayed upon economically. They will pitch in during harvests and bless the ceremonies of those times ensuring that food goes further than one would suspect.
Pracalam, as a deity, is extremely fresh and young although his experiences come from the extremis of times long ago or the freshness of very recent days. In Kern his followers were farmers that were forced to become soldiers; this is something that is still often true and something that he taught them. Fighting to protect the land and the livelihoods of those that rely on it be that from invaders or rich landlords are all on the agenda for his Pilgrims. Further than that they are expected to pitch in where necessary especially when they are recieving the hospitality of the people whether that is tilling the land, serving bar or helping to build a home a Pracalamite will not shirk a workload and they will expect fair recompense for it. Their other core believes revolve around the need for family, specifically the importance of children and how they are given right to add to and build society.
Basic principals should allow children to follow their own paths in career, orientation and love whilst still respecting, learning of and enhancing family traditions. All around them the land beckons, offering resource, adventure, wisdom and hardiness, we are all children of the Gillieabad and that family must also be cared for and loved. Pracalamites find it easy to care for and love each other and the world around them, there is little unkindness in them but they are hard people, they have lived as much as they have loved.
“Stand. Never run from responsibility whether that responsibility is to hold a line in the sand so thin it would be washed away by a few drops of rain let alone the oncoming tide that you face. Or whether that responsibility is to take your infants hand in yours and bring smiles to its unhappy face. These responsibilities come because of choices that we make whether it be as an individual or as a society, either way they are ours and we own them. They are not be handed off to the undeserving only passed on to those willing to help us shoulder them to better protect and uphold our communities.”From the Assembly at Kern
