Ad Astra Per Arcana
The Peace Asteroid
Description and Notes:
The people of this asteroid settlement are pacifists who worship ‘Peace’, a philosophical concept which nonetheless seems to be able to grant spells to the priests of Unipaxala. Their basic tenet is simple, “To Revere Peace in All its Myriad Forms, To Bring No Harm to Others, and To Resolve Conflict through the Powers of the Mind”
The priests of the asteroid wear blue and purple robes with gold trim, high priests wear blue robes with gold trim. Acolytes wear green robes with gold trim. They defend themselves through careful use of their priestly powers and a powerful artifact called the ‘Ice-Ring Projector’ which is powered by mysterious crystals. When the crystals are shattered the projector surrounds the asteroid with a sphere of ice, impervious to normal siege weapons or ramming ships. The asteroid has been conquered once, by the neogi, but was soon freed by the efforts of the infamous wizardess Meredith.
