Princes of the Apocalypse
Cult of the Black Earth
Marlos Urnrayle (Prophet)
The Black Earth cult is noted as the most defense-minded and patient of the four elemental cults. Earth cultists’ main personality traits are stoicism, endurance, and unyielding resolve. They usually take their time to ponder a situation before beginning any new enterprise, gathering their strength and considering their plans. Once earth cultists decide to act, they are inflexible and persistent and overtake any obstacle or unforeseen development. They show a single-minded attitude to the extreme, not caring even for social niceties. Most earth cultists see common courtesy as an obstacle created by weak people to put limits on the behavior of the strong, and they see empathy or friendship as a sign of weakness.
The earth cultists are fascinated by the implacable strength and unyielding resistance of elemental earth. Their main goal is to obtain the power to eliminate all kinds of civilization using landslides, sinkholes, or mighty earthquakes, thus demonstrating the true power of elemental earth and the futility of resistance. Earth cultists see mines, quarries, and tilled fields as injuries upon the living rock and soil. They believe that the earth craves the blood of those who do not venerate it before all other powers and beings.
