Kossuth

  卡署斯Kossuth(读作“Koh-SOOTH”)如飒飒低语的火焰般说话,他是所有火元素、以及那些将火焰视为一种净化与复兴之力的人的守护神。他通常被描绘成一根燃烧着的巨大火柱。他代表了为给新事物让路而将旧事物燃尽的过程,他认识到了变革的方式是严酷而有节制的。他是灶台中的火焰,看似温暖,但随时有可能袭击主人并点着房子。他是火的奥秘,是启发铁匠们灵感的不可知秘密,是杀死那些为了取乐而点燃物品与他人的疯子的死神。
Kossuth (Koh-SOOTH), spoken like a whispering flame, is the patron of all fire elementals as well as any who view fire as a purifying and revitalizing force. He is normally depicted as a huge pillar of flame boiling skyward. He represents the burning away of the old to make way for the new with the cognizance that the way to change is harsh and measured. He is the fire in the hearth which appears comforting but which may turn on its owner at any time and burn the house down. He is the mystery of fire, the unknowable secret that speaks inspiration to smiths and death to crazed people who burn things and people for pleasure.

  就像所有的元素领主,卡署斯看上去对他在 艾伯尔-托瑞尔星球Abeir-Toril 的追随者们毫无感情。如果说卡署斯的反应在逻辑上是怪异陌生的,但看上去他对最终结果已作了深思熟虑;他向着某个特定的目标迈进,却未将目标与 费伦大陆Faerûn 的任何人分享。然而,他似乎被驱使在 诸国度the Realms 去收集比任何其祂元素领主多得多的追随者,来达成他的命令——这也许是因为他焚烧他们的速度太快了。卡署斯和其祂元素领主们这种怪异陌生、漠不关心的姿态,在 诸国度the Realms 留下了他们只是弱等神力、他们的追随者们只是些古怪教徒的错误印象。在 动荡之年Time of Troubles 期间,卡署斯并没有在诸国度被发现。
Like all the elemental lords, Kossuth seems to hold little affection toward his followers on Abeir-Toril. His reactions seem calculated in end result, if alien in logic; he moves toward a certain end, but has not shared that end with anyone on Faerûn. He seems driven, however, to collect more followers to do his bidding in the Realms than any of the other elemental lords—perhaps because he burns them out so quickly. The alien and uncaring stance of Kossuth and the other elemental lords has led to the mistaken impression in the Realms that they are only lesser powers and their followers merely bizarre cultists. During the Time of Troubles, Kossuth was not spotted in the Realms.

  卡署斯乐意接受以其名义奉献的燔祭,不过据说他更喜欢石榴石、黄玉、黄水晶、铁或贵金属材质的精致锻造物、坚果、精品油、芳香树脂、肉类。他赠予追随者的礼物是最大化效益地使用火焰以及抵抗高温和火焰的能力。卡署斯似乎是唯一一位以德报德的元素领主;他对那些他最忠诚、或是作出了更大牺牲的人的嘉奖,比新皈依他信仰或是那些只献上了象征性献祭的人要多。
Kossuth readily accepts what offerings are burnt in his name, but is said to prefer garnets, topazes, citrine, fine smithwork in iron or precious metals, nuts, fine oils, aromatic resins, and meat. His gifts to his followers are the ability to use fire to their greatest benefit and protection from heat and flames. Kossuth is the only elemental lord who seems to return kind for kind; he rewards those who have been most faithful to him or made larger sacrifices more than he does newcomers to his faith or those who give only a token offering.

卡署斯的化身Kossuth's Avatar

  (30-HD 火元素Fire Elemental,牧师Cleric 30,巫师Mage 30)

  卡署斯在艾伯尔-托瑞尔星球表面神临的次数比其祂元素领主多得多,因为他是唯一一位会对召唤仪式作出回应的元素领主,但即便是他,神临的次数也不足一打。卡署斯曾响应两种祈唤而神临主物质位面:一座极其巨大的篝火以他之名被修筑;由其教会首领施行的、极其复杂的召唤。卡署斯是一副令人敬畏的奇观,他呈现为一根炽红的圆柱,高度超过60英尺、直径超过20英尺。他的嗓音是伴随着任意方向数百码内都能听见的、令人不安的噼啪声与爆裂声的嘶嘶低语。他能施展以下领域或学派的法术,领域:元素火,治疗;学派:元素火。
Kossuth has appeared much more often on the surface of Abeir-Toril than the other elemental lords because he is the only elemental lord to ever have been noted to respond to a summoning ceremony, but even his appearances number fewer than a dozen. Kossuth has appeared upon the prime in response to one of two calls:a truly immense bonfire constructed in his name or a complex summoning performed by the leaders of his church. Kossuth is an awesome spectacle, appearing as a column of red-hot fire more than 60 feet high and 20 feet in diameter. His voice is a hissing whisper accompanied by disturbing crackles and pops that can be heard for hundreds of yards in every direction. He casts spells from the elemental fire and healing spheres and the elemental fire school.

特殊攻击/防御Special Att/Def:

  在任何火焰能自然存在的晶壁系中,卡署斯都被视作 主物质位面Prime Material Plane 的本地生物。这使他免疫如 反魔法场anti'magic shell防护邪恶/善良protection from evil/good、以及 圣言holy word 这类法术对来自另一位面生物的不良影响。他也完全免疫任何对以火焰造成伤害的法术(火球术fireball火焰箭flame arrow焰击术flame strike 等等)。
Kossuth is considered a native of the Prime Material Plane in any crystal sphere he appears in so long as fire can naturally exist in that sphere. This makes him immune to the adverse effects of such spells as anti'magic shell, protection from evil/good, and holy word on creatures from other planes. He also has total immunity to any spell that causes damage by fire (fireball, flame arrow, flame strike, etc.).

  卡署斯化身形体的每根燃烧的卷须,都能穿透包括 火焰盾牌fire shield 在内的任何魔法或自然的火焰抗力。除了以他的焰拳攻击外,卡署斯还能放射出一道炽焰波,对120英尺内的所有生物造成10d4点伤害;成功的对抗喷吐武器豁免检定能使该伤害减半。那些直视卡署斯的人,必须在直视期间的每轮进行一次对抗法术豁免检定,否则将屈服于 火焰魅惑术fire charm 法术的效果。
Each flaming tendril of Kossuth's avatar form cuts through all magical or natural resistances to fire, including the fire shield spell. In addition to his flaming fist attacks, Kossuth can also send out a blazing wave of heat, inflicting 10d4 points of damage to all creatures within 120 feet; a successful saving throw vs. breath weapon reduces this damage by half. Those who gaze directly upon Kossuth must make a successful saving throw vs. spell at a -2 penalty each round they do so or be subject to the effects of a fire charm spell.

  卡署斯无法穿越宽度超过他(也即20英尺)的水体或不可燃烧的液体。通过花费2轮的时间与一大片火焰融合,卡署斯可以在任何时候离开战场或主物质位面。
Kossuth cannot cross bodies of water or nonflammable liquids wider than he is (20 feet). Kossuth can leave a field of battle or the Prime Material Plane at any time by spending two rounds merging with a large fire.

其祂显现Other Manifestations

  卡署斯偶尔才会显现于诸国度,但相较于其祂元素领主还是频繁地多。他的信徒将每场大火都视作 火之主the Firelord 的显现。火中暴君the Tyrant Among Fire 的追随者们报告说他们在每座燃烧的建筑里都目睹了他们的神。不必多说,这些受灾房主因此对他们几无好感。(很多时候,若燃烧的建筑附近存在任何卡署斯的追随者,那么火灾发生的原因已经昭然若揭。)有时卡署斯会从 火元素位面the Elemental Plane of Fire 派遣仆从生物(如火元素、火蜥蜴、火蛇、火神怪、火蝙蝠、烟和岩浆侧元素、以及火矮人来完成他的命令或援助他的追随者。成功点燃火焰和成功锻制一块锻造品一样,总是被视作受卡署斯眷顾的标志。
Kossuth has manifested sporadically in the Realms, but much more frequently than the other elemental lords. Any significant blaze is viewed as a manifestation of the Firelord by his faithful. The followers of the Tyrant Among Fire report seeing their lord amongst the flames of every burning building. Needless to say, this has done little to endear them to the residents of such buildings. (More times than not, the presence of any follower of Kossuth near a burning building reveals the source of the blaze.) Kossuth sometimes sends servant creatures from the Elemental Plane of Fire such as fire elementals, salamanders, fire snakes, efreet, fire bats, smoke and magma paraelementals, and azers to do his bidding or aid followers. Starting a fire successfully is always seen as a sign of Kossuth's favor, as is successfully forging a piece of smithwork.

  卡署斯的所有专属祭司、护教军、武僧和萨满都得到 宗教知识religion(泛费伦Faerûnian) 作为非武器熟练奖励。在被要求必需掌握的熟练之外,卡署斯教派Kossuthan 的祭司们还被强烈鼓励学习 锻造blacksmith、盲斗blind-fighting、以及 酿造brewing。除了他们正常的魔法领域之外,卡署斯的所有萨满还额外获得火元素领域作为他们的一项主要领域。
All specialty priests, crusaders, monks, and shamans of Kossuth receive religion (Faerûnian) as a bonus nonweapon proficiency. Kossuthan priests are strongly encouraged to learn blacksmith, blind-fighting, and brewing in addition to their required proficiencies. All shamans of Kossuth receive elemental fire as one of their major spheres in addition to their normal spheres of magic.

  在动荡之年前,所有的元素教派队伍中都有牧师。目前,只有专属祭司留了下来。并不清楚为何卡署斯多年来致力于将他的牧师转化为专属祭司,不过 卡署斯教派Kossuthan 的教会教诲说这种改变是为了让专属祭司们专注于他们之主的元素,而不是其它任务。自 诸神之战the Godswar 以来,卡署斯教派的教会已经增添了几支武僧组织和一支护教军组织,来填补祭职者队伍中更普遍的牧师曾经填补的空缺。
Before the Time of Troubles, all of the elemental cults had clerics in their ranks. Now, only specialty priests remain. Why Kossuth abruptly decided to convert his clerics to specialty priests is unknown, but the Kossuthan church considers it one of the elements of purity within the faith that those closest to Kossuth are allowed to concentrate on the spells and activities that are of most interest to their lord. Since the Godswar, the Kossuthan church has added several monastic orders and an order of crusaders to the church to fulfill duties in the ranks of the priesthood previously tended to by Kossuthan clerics.

  艾伯尔-托瑞尔星球的卡署斯追随者们似乎都是些意图根据他们自己对完美的憧憬——如有需要,可以采取突然而猛烈的手段——来彻底重组世界的图谋者和阴谋家。在所有元素教派之中,卡署斯的教派大概是最危险、最不可预测的,因为卡署斯的各个教会都由强大的首领和他们脚下严苛的祭司等级制度统领,但除了卡署斯,并不存在需要他们对其报告的最高权威——而只要他们还敬仰自己,卡署斯并不很关心他们要做什么。卡署斯教会的祭司和成员们总是会很快地诉诸暴力和对其他人的行动作出反应;而对侵犯或是犯罪,卡署斯教派的“正义”严厉、迅捷而残酷。
Followers of Kossuth on Abeir-Toril seem to be plotters and schemers intent on cleanly reorganizing the world as it is into their own vision of perfection— through abrupt and violent means if necessary. Of all the elemental cults, Kossuth's is probably the most dangerous and unpredictable in that individual churches of Kossuth are led by powerful leaders with a rigid priest hierarchy beneath them but no ultimate authority other than Kossuth to report to—and Kossuth does not seem much to care what they do, as long as they honor him. Its priests and its members are quick to resort to violence and quick to take offense at the actions of others; the "justice" of a Kossuthan is harsh, quick, and brutally suited to the offense or the crime.

  卡署斯的神殿由一位极其骄傲、致命、果断坚定之人领导,他们全都坚信自己的道路才是正途。在教会之中被要求——或者更准确地说,被命令——绝对的服从。那些违背统治祭司的意愿之人,常会发现自己被抛进了附近的河流或湖泊中,并实质上被逐出了教会。(向卡署斯的追随者泼水被认为是一种侮辱。)
Temples of Kossuth are led by a great many proud, deadly, and determined individuals, all convinced that their way is the way. Strict obedience is required—or rather, demanded—within the church. Those who go against the wishes of the ruling priests frequently find themselves tossed into a nearby river or lake and effectively excommunicated from the church. (Splashing a follower of Kossuth with water is considered an insult.)

  卡署斯的祭司们分为两个派别:烈焰卷须the Tendrils of Flame 和 燃烧火盆the Burning Braziers。烈焰卷须是那些经营者费伦大陆各地的各种神殿、为信徒提供饮食及服务、以及向民众布道卡署斯的话语。烈焰卷须施行了大部分的宗教仪式,并负责主持典礼和圣日。他们掌控了该信仰的大部分权力,并投身于地区神殿之间和当地政治的斗争中,这经常使得他们在自己神殿附近地区变得声名显赫或是恶名昭彰。
The priests of Kossuth are organized into two factions:the Tendrils of Flame and the Burning Braziers. The Tendrils are those who operate the various temples across Faerûn, catering to the faithful and preaching the word of Kossuth to the masses. The Tendrils perform most religious ceremonies and see to the observance of rituals and holidays. They hold most of the power in the faith and hurl themselves into regional intertemple and local political frays, generally making themselves famous or infamous near their temples.

  燃烧火盆(教会的批评人士们也称其为 火盆旅the Brazier Brigade)是该信仰的从属武装。这些经常地苦恼怨望的祭司们,通常是那些在之前所在神殿的某场政治争吵中严重闹翻的前烈焰卷须成员。他们冒险前往那些未曾见识“卡署斯的智慧”的土地,通常会在他们的行踪路线上留下燃烧的建筑物。他们布道 暴君the Tyrant 的话语,挖掘准备好接受卡署斯教会的新地区。(实事求是地说,大部分人会觉得他们是在找那些适合“采摘”的“成熟”地区——那些领导人软弱或缺乏保护的地方。)
The Burning Braziers, also known as the Brazier Brigade by critics of the church, are the adventuring arm of the faith. These frequently embittered priests are often former members of the Tendrils who fell out badly in a political squabble in their former temples. They venture forth out into lands that have not seen the "wisdom of Kossuth," often leaving burning buildings in their wake. Preaching the word of the Tyrant, they discover new areas that are ready to accept a church of Kossuth. (Pragmatically, most folk would say that they look for areas ripe for the picking—those with weak leadership or little protection.)

  卡署斯教派初修士被称作 无光者the Lightless。在许下 蹈火誓言the Oath of Firewalking 时,他们将变为正式祭司,并被称作 承诺者the Promised。依升序,承诺者普遍使用的头衔如下:信仰之炬Torch of the Faith、公义之焰Righteous Flame、献身烈焰Devoted Blaze、热忱火葬柴堆Zealous Pyre、焰之柱Pillar of Flame、信仰之狂怒Fury of the Faith、焰之兄弟Flamebrother/焰之姊妹Flamesister、灵感熔炉Inspired Forge、超然烈焰Numinous Blaze、至热之火Most Fervid Fire、以及 卡署斯的永恒之焰Eternal Flame of Kossuth。卡署斯的专属祭司名为 火行者firewalkers。卡署斯的武僧名为 虔信之焰Faithful Flames。
Novice Kossuthans are referred to as the Lightless. Upon taking the Oath of Firewalking, they become full priests and are known as the Promised. In ascending order of rank, the titles in general use by the Promised are:Torch of the Faith, Righteous Flame, Devoted Blaze, Zealous Pyre, Pillar of Flame, Fury of the Faith, Flamebrother/Flamesister, Inspired Forge, Numinous Blaze, Most Fervid Fire, and Eternal Flame of Kossuth. Specialty priests of Kossuth are known as firewalkers. Monks of Kossuth are known as Faithful Flames.

  卡署斯的祭司们被组织到神殿之中。每座神殿都由一位永恒之焰专属祭司领导。在永恒之焰下是3位至热之火,每位至热之火下是2位超然烈焰。而每位超然烈焰之下,是低至献身烈焰阶层的、其他每个神职者阶层各1位成员。一座神殿会有很多献身烈焰阶层或更低阶层的祭司、初修士和它能供养世俗成员,而每一祭司阶层人数的分解,都要在热忱火葬柴堆中尽可能地平均划分。阶层的提升通过经验值的积累实现,但以这种方式最高只能提升到献身烈焰阶层,之后就只能在开缺之时通过两位更高阶祭司的举荐来晋升。晋升总是由该神殿的永恒烈焰批准,他可以不经正常途径而根据自己的意愿,否决任何晋升或是将任何人晋升至任何职务(但要在该神殿每个阶层所允许的人数限制之内)。在原始或游牧社会中,卡署斯主要由萨满侍奉,这些萨满并无隶属的特定神殿,但他们在所在社群(通常对他们感到恐惧)得到了极大的尊重。
Kossuth's priests are organized into temples. Each temple is led by an Eternal Flame who is a specialty priest. Under the Eternal Flame are three Most Fervid Fires, and under each of them are two Numinous Blazes. Under each Numinous Blaze is one of every other rank of clergy member down to Devoted Blazes. A temple has as many priests of Devoted Blaze rank and below, novices, and members of the laity as it can support, with the breakdown of numbers of each rank of priest being as equally divided among the Zealous Pyres as possible. Progress through the ranks is through experience until the rank of Devoted Blaze, and then only through the recommendation of two higher-ranking priests when an opening occurs. Promotions are always confirmed by the temple's Eternal Flame, who may negate any promotion or promote anyone to any position as she or he wishes without following normal procedure (within the limits of the numbers of each rank of priest allowed in a temple). In primitive or nomadic societies, Kossuth is served by shamans who are allied to no particular temple but held in great respect by their communities, which usually fear them.

  卡署斯的神龛和神殿总是由硬石头、陶瓷和金属修筑,因为这样才能抵挡最热烈的自然巨响和大部分魔法噪音。它们大都相当结实并是块状的,其高耸的中心元素或是圆柱,普遍给人一种巨大的篝火从地面燃烧起来的感受。在圣所的大部分表面通常都包裹着宝石和贵金属,其它位置则分布稀疏,从而给人强化圣所的豪奢效果。
Shrines and temples of Kossuth are always made of hard stone, ceramic, and metal so as to withstand the hottest natural blare and most magical ones. Most are rather solid and blocky in general feel with soaring central elements or columns to give the impression of huge bonfires blazing up from the floor. All are well lighted at all times. Gems and precious metal usually encrust most surfaces of the sanctuary but are sparsely distributed elsewhere so as to enhance the sumptuous effect of the holy sanctum.

教义Dogma:

  卡署斯教在托瑞尔星球的教诲是建立在这样一个假设上:适合之人将会成功,而卡署斯信仰天然优于其祂信仰(尤其是其祂元素领主的信仰,特别是依斯提悉亚信仰)。火与纯净是一体的;火制造的烟是由妒忌的气元素创造的,而通过火焰,金属中存在的杂质将被清除。卡署斯教教会的驱动力是野心,而对成功的回报是权力。卡署斯教派学说还提到,向一种更高级状态的转化必然伴随着各种困厄和个人痛苦。“没有痛苦,就没有获得”是最毫无疑义的一种卡署斯教式观点。
The teachings of the Kossuthan religion on Toril are built around an assumption that those fit to succeed will do so and that the faith of Kossuth is innately superior to other faiths, especially those of the other elemental lords and particularly to that of Istishia. (The Istishian and Kossuthian churches hate one another.) Fire and purity are one and the same; the smoke produced by fire is created by the element of air in its jealousy and through the impurities of the material being cleansed by the flames. The driving force in the Kossuthan church is ambition, and the reward of successful ambition is power. Kossuthan doctrine also speaks of the inevitability of change to a higher state being accompanied by difficulty and personal pain of one type or another. "No pain, no gain" is most definitely a Kossuthan sentiment.

  卡署斯教信仰中的初修士被要求如下:“永恒的卡署斯派遣他那纯净之火净化万物,淬炼我们的灵魂到更完美的状态。要期待被考验,要努力迎接挑战,无论它将给你带来什么困厄和苦痛。依循在你之上的承诺者,因为他们已经证明了自己的价值,并达到了一种更高的状态——在为卡署斯的服务之中,你也同样能寻得那种状态。去找到真正的愿景、你生活的终极目标,并完全投入地追寻它。完全投入到这项事业中去,而它也将报之以永恒的回报。指引群集的大众前往卡署斯那纯净之光,这样他就能将所有生命重塑为其基本的形态,完整的秩序与和谐也将随之到来。”
Novices in the Kossuthan faith are charged as follows:"The eternal Kossuth sends his pure fire to cleanse us all and temper our souls to a more pure state. Expect to be tested and strive to rise to the challenge, no matter what difficulty or pain it brings you. Follow the Promised above you, for they have proven their worth and achieved a higher state which you too can find in Kossuth's service. Find the true vision, the final goal of your life, and pursue it utterly. Give yourself totally to the cause, and it will return eternal rewards to you. Guide the teeming masses to the pure light that is Kossuth so that he may reforge all life into its essential form, and complete order and harmony will follow."

日常活动Day-to-Day Activities:

  无光者们的一项工作是照看教会的火堆并确保它们永不熄灭。卡署斯教会的其他成员则规划典礼(婚礼、葬礼、蹈火)、指导初修士、照料神殿和神殿所属神职人员的日常成长、健康和财富、追求晋升、晋升、以及晋升。作为一位神殿的领导人意味着这位祭司可以最终做他想做的任何事,而不用管他的上司说什么。大多数祭司变得沉迷于对权力的欲望,而这种气氛滋生、培育了一些权力欲望炽烈的小暴君,这些家伙往往行为肆无忌惮并逾越了自己的界限。虽然这可能不是卡署斯为他的忠实信徒们准备的道路,但他也未置一词反对。在权力欲炽热的永恒之焰领导下,大部分神殿都以征服、领土的获得、财富、以及统治权为目标追寻,它们与最有利于实现其目标的对象结盟,但在它们的队伍内部,遵循着一套严格而独特密码。
Tending to the fires of the church and making sure that they never go out is a job for the Lightless. Other members of the church of Kossuth plan ceremonies (weddings, funerals, fire-walking), instruct novices, tend to the day-to-day growth health and wealth of a temple and its clergy members, and pursue promotion, promotion, promotion. Being the leader of a temple means that a priest can finally do what she or he wants to, rather than what his or her superiors say. Most priests become addicted to the desire for power this atmosphere breeds and grow into small, power-hungry tyrants prone to unscrupulous behavior and to overreaching their limits. Though this may not be the path Kossuth intended for his faithful, he speaks not a word against it. Most temples, led by power-hungry Eternal Flames, pursue goals of conquest, land acquisition, wealth, and rulership, making alliances with whoever is most expedient to their goals but conforming to a strict and peculiar code within their own ranks.

圣日/重要仪式Holy Days/Important Ceremonies:

  蹈火誓言是该信仰所有祭司为得授第一级法术都必须经历的引导启蒙。随着这位祭司等级的提升,他的信仰将持续接受这些蹈蹈火为的测试。
The Oath of Firewalking is an introductory initiation that all priests of the faith must undergo in order to be granted first-level spells. As a priest rises in level, his faith continues to be tested by these fire-walks.

  信徒们必须于每天的日出和日高时,在吃饭前向卡署斯祈祷,为一切生灵之中燃烧着的隐藏的生命之火感激他。除了这项日常仪式,教会还会举办两种个人典礼,而每座神殿还会举行一种年度庆典。
The faithful must pray to Kossuth each day at sunrise and at highsun before taking their meals, thanking him for the hidden fire of life energy that burns in all things. Other than this daily ceremony, the church observes two personal ceremonies and each temple holds a yearly festival.

  蹈火誓言是初修士成为祭司时进行的庄严誓言。这一承诺的力量,在这位卡署斯教派祭司第一次和之后每次通过在燃烧的煤上行走提升排名时将受到考验。每一次蹈火誓言,煤都将变得更炽热、在上面走的需要更远。卡署斯或他的资深神职人员是如何知道进行测试之人的内心与思想的尚不可知,但那些心存疑虑或是在阴谋策划——比如说反对他们的神殿——的卡署斯教徒,经常会被蹈火誓言严重烧伤或是死在煤上,而那些在他们的目的与忠诚上一心一意的祭司们则将毫发未损地走完。
The Oath of Firewalking is a solemn oath taken when a novice becomes a priest. The strength of this promise is tested when it is first taken and again when a Kossuthan priest rises in rank by a walk over burning coals. The coals become hotter and the walk longer with each Firewalk. How Kossuth or his senior clergy members know what is in the hearts and minds of those taking the test is unknown, but Kossuthans with doubts or who are secretly plotting against their temples (for instance) are often horribly burned by a Firewalk or die on the coals, while priests who are single-minded in their purity of purpose and loyalty walk unscathed.

  火之统一The Unity of Fire 是技艺达到特定等级的卡署斯教派专属祭司经历的典礼,允许他们从火元素位面唤来火元素。在仪式开始之前,是持续一天的念咒和祈祷,在这之后火元素将被召唤。当这只元素应答时,它将获赠仪式的司仪神父亲手事先准备好的食物礼物,以及一只以铜或其它贵金属制造、装满钱币、宝石和珠宝的保险箱,然后带着它们与忠实信徒们的美好祝愿返回卡署斯那里。
The Unity of Fire is the ceremony that Kossuthan specialty priests undergo that allows them, upon reaching a certain level of skill, to call forth fire elementals from the Elemental Plane of Fire. The ceremony is preceded by a day of constant chanting and prayer, after which the elemental is summoned. When the elemental answers, it is given a gift of food prepared by the hand of the ritual celebrant and a coffer of worked copper or other precious metal full of coins, gems, and jewelry to carry back to Kossuth with the good wishes of his faithful.

  各神殿的永恒之焰的生日是各神殿的节日。这位永恒之焰将邀请其他神殿的卡署斯高阶和资深祭司、当地和外地的政要、以及其他他相信神殿能讨好钻营而从中受益的人。这些人将被奉上奢侈的饮食、赠予特殊的礼物、并被奉承追求成为这位永恒之焰和这座神殿的未来盟友。
On the birthdate of the Eternal Flame of each temple, that temple holds a festival. The Eternal Flame invites Kossuthan high and senior priests from other temples, local and foreign dignitaries, and others whom she or he believes the temple will benefit from by currying favor with. These people are pampered, given special gifts, and courted to become future allies of the Eternal Flame and the temple.

主要崇拜中心Major Centers of Worship:

  卡署斯教派的教会频繁地在大片火源地附近(如火山)或炎热干旱的地区(如沙漠)中修筑它的神圣神龛,但他们最常在城市中和相当大的乡村中修筑它们的大规模神殿(以更好地使用使用神殿,以及随后控制该地区)。对卡署斯的忠实信徒来说 安奥罗克沙漠the Anauroch 中的 伦德斯村Lundeth 是个受欢迎的目的地。当然,费伦大陆最大的卡署斯神殿是 塞尔Thay(红袍法师the Red Wizards 们的家园,他们对火中暴君多有敬仰)的 拜占图城Bezantur 的 炽焰火盆the Flaming Brazier。
The Kossuthan church frequently builds its holy shrines near large sources of fire, such as volcanoes, or in hot, arid areas, such as deserts, but most often builds its large temples in cities and countries of substantial size (the better for them to be used and later controlled). The village of Lundeth in the Anauroch desert is a popular destination for the faithful of Kossuth. Of course, the largest temple to Kossuth in Faerûn is the Flaming Brazier in Bezantur in Thay, home to the Red Wizards, who have much respect for the Tyrant Among Fire.

从属组织Affiliated Orders:

  卡署斯教派的武僧组织名为 凤凰门徒the Disciples of the Phoenix(善良阵营)、纯净之焰的兄弟姐妹the Brothers and Sisters of the Pure Flame(中立阵营)、以及 火蜥蜴门徒Disciples of the Salamander(邪恶阵营)。它们是些非常狭隘的组织,维持的修道院中只容纳同一组织的武僧,并有着非常严格的学术和军事传统。每支组织都有自其创建之日起就开始约束其成员的特殊禁忌。
The Kossuthan monastic orders are known as the Disciples of the Phoenix (good-aligned), the Brothers and Sisters of the Pure Flame (neutral-aligned), and the Disciples of the Salamander (evil-aligned). They are very insular orders who maintain abbeys composed of monks of only one order and who have very rigid traditions of scholarship and martial prowess. Each order has peculiar taboos applying to the behavior of its members that date to the founding of the order.

  卡署斯的护教军军事组织是 火蜉骑士团the Knights of the Fire Drake。该组织的成员保护着该信仰的圣地,领导该信仰数量众多的圣战,并为永恒之焰提供个人保护。
The crusading military order of Kossuth is the Knights of the Fire Drake. This order's members guard the holy sites of the faith, lead the faith's numerous holy campaigns, and provide personal protection to Eternal Flames.

  卡署斯的教会也有许多塞尔红袍法师附属机构,因为许多红袍法师都是卡署斯教徒。有些 首席zulkirs 也在塞尔无尽的权力游戏之中、以及向塞尔边境之外的征服准备中,与该教会协作。
The church of Kossuth also has many affiliations with the Red Wizards of Thay, since many Red Wizards are Kossuthans. A number of zulkirs work with the church and the church with the zulkirs in endless power plays within Thay and in preparation for conquest beyond Thay's borders.

祭司的祭服Priestly Vestments:

  那些追随火中暴君的人穿着红色、绯红色和橙色的鲜亮长袍。除了 火蜉会the Order of the Fire Drake 的那些人外,参与神龛或神殿典礼时所有祭司都不允许穿戴盔甲。卡署斯之焰The flame of Kossuth 被作为圣徽佩戴,它通常由一颗被附魔以置于珠宝里的内部火焰发光的红润宝石(通常是 焰舞石flamedance)制成。描绘着各种颜色火焰的刺绣是仪式长袍流行的装饰,随着在卡署斯祭司阶层中攀升,其装饰将变得更为精致和昂贵。
Those who follow the Tyrant Among Fire dress in light robes of red, crimson, and orange. The use of armor while participating in a ceremony in a shrine or temple is forbidden to all priests except those of the Order of the Fire Drake. The flame of Kossuth is worn as a holy symbol and is usually formed of a ruddy gem (often flamedance) enchanted to glow with an inner fire that is set into jewelry. Embroidery depicting flames of various hues is a popular decoration to ceremonial robes, and the decorations grow more elaborate and expensive with increases in a Kossuthan priest's rank.

冒险装束Adventuring Garb:

  承诺者们偏好红色和绯红,不过他们会穿着适合当前地域的服饰。在野外祭司们被允许准备链甲和盾牌,不过魔法保护更为优先。大部分卡署斯教徒非常喜欢会发出巨大声响、闪光浮华、可以造成骤然而残酷伤害的魔法物品,并且一有机会就会以一种冒犯的姿势炫耀地显露它们。
Reds and crimsons are the favored colors of the Braziers, though they wear whatever clothing is appropriate in style to their current location. Priests are allowed to wear up to chain mail and shield in the field, although magical protections are preferred. Most Kossuthans are extremely fond of magical items that do loud, flashy, sudden, and brutal damage, and display them prominently in an offensive posture at the drop of a hat.

  ❖金精灵、月精灵、金精灵或月精灵血统的半精灵、火巨人、以及中立或邪恶阵营的侏儒(岩侏)可以成为火行者,不过精灵社会轻蔑地看待这种职业的精灵或半精灵,而侏儒社会则对侏儒火行者心存疑虑。
  ❖ Gold elves, moon elves, half-elves of either gold elf or moon elf descent, fire giants, and neutral or evil gnomes (rock gnomes) may be firewalkers, although elf society looks with disdain upon such a career for an elf or a half-elf and gnome society regards gnome firewalkers with suspicion.

  ❖除了祭司法术外,火行者还可施展来自元素火学派的法师法术。火行者如同等级巫师般施展这些法术。举例来说,3级的火行者如3级巫师般施展法师法术。他们为他们的法师法术进行祈祷而非学习从而记忆它们,选择的法师法术将代替那天的潜在可用的祭司法术。(换句话说,法师法术占用的是祭司法术位。)火行者在第16级获得8级法师法术,在第18级获得9级法师法术。火行者需有18或更高的感知和16的智力,才能访问8级法术,需要有18或更高的感知和18的智力,才能访问9级法术。若火行者能获得高等级法师法术,则祈求的每道8级法术占用一个6级祭司法术位,每道9级法术占用一个7级祭司法术位。如他们知晓 阅读魔法read magic 般,火行者总是能够阅读在卷轴上或法师法术书中的土元素法术(但无法从法术书上学习法术)。火行者可选取的法师法术总量,不得超过其可用法术总量的3/4(向下取整)。
  ❖ Firewalkers may cast wizard spells from the elemental fire school in addition to priest spells. These spells are cast as if the firewalker were a mage of the same level. For example, a 3rd-level firewalker casts wizard spells as a 3rd-level mage. Firewalkers pray for their wizard spells instead of studying to memorize them, and chosen wizard spells replace priest spells potentially available for use that day. (In other words, the wizard spell occupies a priest spell slot.) Firewalkers gain access to 8th-level wizard spells at 16th level and 9th-level wizard spells at 18th level. A firewalker must have a Wisdom of 18 or higher and an Intelligence of 16 to gain access to the 8th level spells, and a Wisdom of 18 or higher and an Intelligence of 18 to gain access to the 9th-level spells. If a firewalker is able to gain high-level wizard spells, every 8th-Ievel spell prayed for occupies a 6th-level priest spell slot and every 9th-level spell prayed for occupies a i 7th-level priest spell slot. Firewalkers are always able to read elemental fire spells on scrolls or in wizard spellbooks as if they knew read magic (but studying spells from a spellbook is useless to them). No more than threequarters of a firewalker's total number of spells available (round down) can be taken as wizard spells.

  ❖在对抗与火焰和高温相关的法术以及炽热的喷吐武器的伤害性相关时,所有的火行者都得到+2的豁免奖励。
  ❖ All firewalkers gain a +2 bonus to saving throws vs. the harmful effects of fire-and heat-related spells and fiery breath weapons.

  ❖在第3级,火行者免疫与非魔法火焰的短暂接触(短于5轮)的伤害效果。
  ❖ At 3rd level, firewalkers are immune to harmful effects from brief contact (less than five rounds) with nonmagical fire.

  ❖在第3级,每日1次,火行者获得能力施展 燃烧之手burning hands(如同1级法师法术)。
  ❖ At 3rd level, firewalkers gain the ability to cast burning hands (as the lst-level wizard spell) once a day.

  ❖在第5级,每日1次,火行者能召唤1只8-HD的火元素。这只元素将在火火行者控制之下持续1小时,并且其它生物无法夺取它的控制权。若召唤者被杀或是失去无意识,被召唤的元素将开始狂暴,攻击视线中召唤者外的任何人,直到它停留在主物质位面的1小时时限过去。值得注意的是,被召唤的元素并非行者的仆人,更确切地说,它被当作一位卡署斯的代理人而被尊重。每天1次,在火行者获得他们的法术补充时,他将得授召唤元素的能力。
  ❖ At 5th level, firewalkers can summon one 8-HD fire elemental once a day. This elemental remains under the control of the firewalker for one hour and cannot be taken control of by another creature. If the summoner is killed or struck unconscious, the summoned elemental goes on a rampage, attacking everyone in sight except its summoner until its one-hour time limit upon the Prime Material has elapsed. It is important to note that the elemental summoned is not a servant of the firewalker, but rather is looked upon as an agent of Kossuth that is to be respected. The ability to summon an elemental is granted once each day when firewalkers receive their normal complement of spells.

  ❖在第7级,卡署斯的荣光部分了庇护火行者免受魔法火焰和燃烧喷吐武器的伤害效果。所有伤害在计算时,每骰-1。
  ❖ At 7th level, the glory of Kossuth partially shields firewalkers from the harmful effects of magical fire and flaming breath weapons. All damage is computed with a -1 on the roll of each die.

  ❖在第7级,每日1次,火行者获得能力施展 火球术fireball(如同3级法师法术)。
  ❖ At 7th level, firewalkers gain the ability to cast fireball (as the 3rd-level wizard spell) once a day.

  ❖在第7级,每日1次,火行者获得能力施展 火焰魅惑术fire charm(如同4级法师法术)。
  ❖ At 9th level, firewalkers gain the ability to cast fire charm (as the 4th-level wizard spell) once a day.

  ❖在第9级,每旬1次,火行者能召唤1只12-HD的火元素。所有方面适用与召唤8-HD的火元素相同的条件。
  ❖ At 9th level, firewalkers can summon one 12-HD fire elemental once a tenday. All the same conditions apply as for summoning an 8-HD fire elemental.

  ❖在第13级,每旬1次,火行者能召唤1只16-HD的火元素。所有方面适用与召唤8-HD的火元素相同的条件。
  ❖ At 13th level, firewalkers can summon one 16-HD fire elemental once a tenday. All the same conditions apply as for summoning an 8-HD fire elemental.

  ❖在第15级,火行者能无需食物、水和空气地穿越火元素位面。
  ❖ At 15th level, firewalkers can move through the Elemental Plane of Fire without need for food, water, or air.

  ❖火行者能一起协力召唤出比独自召唤能召唤的更大HD的土元素。举例来说,两位分别为5级和9级的祭司一起能召唤出一只16HD的火元素。只要两位召唤者都还活着,这只元素就将留在他们的控制下,持续1小时。若其中一位召唤者被杀或是失去知觉,被召唤的元素将开始狂暴,攻击视线中的任何人,直到它停留在主物质位面的1小时时限过去。然后它将返回土元素位面。参加这场联合召唤尝试的人,必须遵守为召唤更强元素而根据他们的打击分配给他们的时间限制。在上述的案例中,5级祭司视作已召唤了他当天的8-HD元素,而9级祭司视作已召唤了他当旬的12-HD元素。
  ❖ Firewalkers who work together can summon an elemental of greater Hit Dice than they would otherwise be able to do alone. For example, a 5thand 9th-level priest could summon a 16-HD elemental. As long as both summoners remain alive, the elemental remains under their control for one full hour. If one of the summoners is killed or struck unconscious, the summoned elemental goes on a rampage, attacking everyone in sight until its one-hour time limit upon the Prime Material has elapsed. It then returns to the Elemental Plane of Fire. The participants in such a combined summoning attempt must abide by time restrictions for further elemental summoning apportioned by their levels. In the above case, the 5th-level priest would have summoned his 8-HD elemental tor the day and the 9th-level priest would have summoned her 12-HD elemental for the tenday.
