群星中的宗教Religion in the Stars

  牧师和专属祭司们往往会因恐惧失去施法能力而担心进入 荒宇wildspace。其实对这点无需再有疑问。当然,当牧师或是祭司进入太空时,他们神明的神力的确会发生一些改变,但多数时候,这些改变还没到让角色感到沮丧的地步。
Clerics and specialty priests tend to worry about heading into wildspace because they fear the loss of their spell casting abilities. There no longer need be any doubt. Granted, when a cleric or priest heads in space, some of the powers of their gods do change, but for the most part, the changes are not drastic enough to warrant any frustration from the character.

  有些改变是积极的,但偶尔,神力可能会有所削弱、乃至消失——尤其是在祭司们进入 燃素海the phlogiston、与其神明失去一切接触的时候。在进入到晶壁系中时,某一角色是否会与他的神明完全而彻底的分离?接下来的章节将详述:魔法船牧师与专属祭司在荒宇中时,诸神与他们的关系、以及诸神本身。
Often these changes are positive, but occasionally, the powers can wane somewhat, or even disappear, especially when the priest heads out into the phlogiston and loses all touch with his god. Is there ever a complete and total separation between god and character while inside the crystal sphere? This next chapter describes the gods and their relationships with spelljamming clerics and specialty priests while in wildspace.

  主物质位面半神力Demipower of Prime Material Plane

  这位女神只有能力向行星大气中的祭司与牧师授予法术。在离开A类或更大行星时,即便尚有法术剩余、她们也不能再释放任何法术。不过有一点值得注意的是,当祭司重新着陆时,将立即恢复施法能力。
This goddess has power to grant spells only to priests and clerics within the atmospheric envelope of a planet. While off any Class A planet or larger, they are unable to cast any spells, even if their allotment has yet to be used. One positive note, though, is that whenever a priest lands on a planet, he instantly regains his spell casting abilities.

Eldath1

  埃达丝Eldath(读作“EL-dath”)是德鲁伊小树林的守护者,在每个宁静之地都能感觉到她的存在。她的德鲁伊和神职人员经常会帮助其他德鲁伊信仰建立小树林并使之神圣化。在宗教艺术中,埃达丝经常被描绘为一位身着闪闪发光的绿色衣物的黑发妇女,或是一位有着蓝色和绿色秀发的树精或野精灵。在每一条潺潺的溪水与瀑布中,都能聆听到她的歌声。
Eldath (EL-dath) is the guardian of druid groves, and her presence is felt every place where there is calm. Her druids and clergy often aid other druidic faiths in establishing a grove and sanctifying it. In religious art, Eldath is often depicted as a dark-haired woman dressed in shimmering green or as a dryad or wild elf with blue and green hair. Her singing is heard in every babbling brook and waterfall.

  埃达丝是位和平主义者,通常甚至是在遭遇威胁时,也不会采取敌对行动。这就是为什么埃达丝成了一位几乎被遗忘的神力;大部分 费伦人Faerûnians 在想到她前,会先想到 梅丽凯Mielikki西凡纳斯Silvanus裳提亚Chauntea 等与自然关联的神明。她貌似害羞,但内里却拥有不为人所知的性格深度与无法断绝的决心。当遭受挑战时,她将在挑战者面前将把东西交出来,但挑战者后来才会发现,她表面上的接受与退缩,只是把他们引入了一个不堪一击的境地:他们已被包围了,失去了自我,而且他们的援军也已经倒戈到了她那一边。
Eldath is a pacifist and usually takes no hostile actions even when threatened. This is one of the reasons that Eldath is almost a forgotten power; most Faerûnians think of Mielikki, Silvanus, or Chauntea in relation to nature before they think of her. Eldath is enigmatic and speaks seldom. She seems shy, but possessed of unknown depths of character and an unexpressed resolve that cannot be broken. When challenged, she gives before challengers who only later discover that her apparent acceptance and retreat merely drew them out into an untenable position where they are surrounded, out of their element, and their reinforcements have been converted to her side.

  与梅丽凯一样,埃达丝也侍奉着西凡纳斯。埃达丝视他为父,但又常常发现他的健壮坚实让她的害羞天性感到畏缩。梅丽凯与埃达丝的关系非常亲密。在 动荡之年Time of Troubles 期间,据闻梅丽凯称她为“达莎Datha”,并且两位女神就像姐妹一般拥抱在一起。
Like Mielikki, Eldath serves Silvanus. Eldath sees him as a father figure, but often finds his robustness intimidating to her retiring nature. Mielikki and Eldath have a very close relationship. During the Time of Troubles Mielikki was heard to address her as "Datha," and the two goddesses embraced as sisters.

  虽然埃达丝反对 坦帕斯Tempus 代表的一切,但并不认为他是自己的个人仇敌。另一边,据说坦帕斯认为埃达丝很天真,但尊重她的信念,在一般情况下都选择忽略她。类似于梅丽凯,埃达丝直到最近还是在 主物质位面Prime Material Plane 设立神国。在 1369 DR,与梅丽凯建立 外层位面Outer Planes 神国同年,埃达丝也将她的神国 真实小树林the True Grove 迁移到了 极乐境Elysium。她是从何而得这股神性力量的爆发来完成这项乔迁壮举的,尚不得而知——数个世纪以来,贤者们一直认为埃达丝的信仰处于萎缩状态。无论如何,还是这批学者推测,无论她是从哪里获得了这波神力,都可能与埃达丝在选择以极乐境作为其家园位面时,明显向善良一侧的正式转变有关。(其中,教会学者们将梅丽凯、密斯特拉Mystra、或裳提亚昨晚可能的侨居搬迁帮助对象。)这种转变本身并没有让任何人感到惊讶,埃达丝仍然同样地欢迎同一批信徒和神职人员加入她。传说中埃达丝的信徒甚至是在在世时,仍然可以通过以前可以到达之处的异界之门访问真实小树林:至高森林High Forest 独角兽之流Unicorn Run 上游河岸;邻近 塞伯湖Lake Sember精灵之树Elventree 附近的 精灵王庭Elven Court 中;迷雾森林Misty Forest 中的 埃达丝之水Eldath's Water 上;泰斯尔森林Forest of Tethir 深处;科米尔王国Cormyr 国王森林King's Forest 的密林心脏;泰什河River Tesh 以北 边境森林Border Forest 中的 橡木岭Oak Hill 山顶;突米斯Turmish 的几个不同地方;以及一打或更多森林地区中。
While Eldath opposes all that Tempus stands for, she does not consider him a personal foe. He in turn, is said to consider her naive, but to respect her convictions and generally ignore her. Eldath made the Prime Material Plane her home until very recently, similar to Mielikki. In 1369 DR, the same year that Mielikki established an Outer Planes realm, Eldath also moved her home realm, the True Grove, to Elysium. Where she received the divine burst of power to make such a huge move is unknown; sages have considered Eldath's faith a shrinking one for centuries. However, these same scholars speculate that wherever she received the power from, it may be related to the official shift toward good that Eldath herself made apparent in picking Elysium as her home plane. (Among themselves, church scholars list Mielikki, Mystra, or Chauntea as likely candidates for help in the move.) The shift itself surprised no one, and Eldath still welcomes the same worshipers and clergy members within her fold. Legend holds that Eldath's worshipers may still visit the True Grove even before their deaths through gates in places where it could formerly be reached: near the upper reaches of the Unicorn Run in the High Forest, in the Elven Court near Lake Sember or near Elventree, at Eldath's Water in the Misty Forest, in the depths of the Forest of Tethir, in the dense heart of the King's Forest in Cormyr, atop Oak Hill in the Border Forest north of the River Tesh, at various locales in Turmish, and in a dozen or more other wooded areas.

埃达丝的化身Eldath's Avatar

  (秘术师Mystic 30,牧师Cleric 25,巫师Mage 22,吟游诗人Bard 15)

  埃达丝不喜欢经常以化身形式神临,看起来几乎可以认为她相当害羞。当她神临时,通常是出现在已经找到进入她某处圣地道路的伤者、或是她的信徒面前。埃达丝使用一位高挑纤细、但仍然优雅美丽的半透明女性人类、宁芙或水生精灵形象;你随时都能看穿她的半透明身躯。她纤足赤裸,秀发仿若玻璃纤维或流动的冰块,色泽如水般透明,她的双眸则为深绿色。埃达丝的绿色丝衣在她周身黏着、流淌,然而目睹此情此景,却不会激起、而是将抚平你的欲念。她散发着宁静与和平。她从所有学派和除了战斗与战争外所有领域获取法术。在使用附魔/魅惑学派和魅惑领域的法术时,她等同于40级。
Eldath prefers not to appear in avatar form often; she seems almost shy. When she does appear, it is usually to wounded beings who have found their way into one of her sacred places or to her worshipers. Eldath takes the form of a tall, thin, yet graceful and beautiful translucent female human, nereid, or aquatic elf; she can be seen through at all times. Her feet are bare, her hair looks like spun glass or flowing ice and is colorless like water, and her eyes are deep green. Eldath's green silken garments flow clingily around her, yet the sight of her soothes lustful thoughts rather than arousing them. She radiates stillness and peace. She can draw spells from all schools and all spheres except combat and war. She employs enchantment/charm school spells and charm sphere spells as if she were 40th level.

特殊攻击/防御Special Att/Def:

  埃达丝是位和平主义者,她宁愿默默地抵抗和承受,也不愿意选择战斗。所有非神性攻击,若是在其90呎范围内发动,攻击骰将遭受-7惩罚;若是在其90至140呎范围内发动,攻击骰将遭受-5惩罚。如果要抬手对抗埃达丝、或是在其效果范围内对她施展任何攻击性法术,攻击者必须先成功进行一次有惩罚的对抗法术豁免检定,该惩罚值等同于该攻击者通常因感知属性而将得到的魔抗调整奖励值(换句话说,奖励变成了等值的惩罚)。至于魔抗的调整惩罚值则仍然保留。
Eldath is a pacifist, preferring to silently resist and withstand rather than fighting. All nondivine attacks are launched at a -7 penalty to attack rolls within 90 feet of her and at a -5 penalty to attack rolls from over 90 feet to 140 feet of her. To raise a hand against Eldath or cast any offensive spell either at her or with her in its area of effect, the attacking being must first succeed at a saving throw vs. spell penalized by any Wisdom ability score magical defense adjustment bonus the attacker normally has (that is, the bonus becomes a penalty of equivalent amount). Magical defense adjustment penalties remain penalties.

  每轮1次,埃达丝可施展一道祭司法术和一道法师法术。她的抚摸可以摧毁任何低于神性力量的不死生物,让它们瞬间化作尘埃。她会尽最大努力施展抑制、魅惑charm定身hold睡眠sleep 或其它只能使敌人持续丧失能力的法术,而非施展伤害性法术。她的微笑能让所有智力在1~4的生物变成朋友。
Eldath can cast one priest spell and one wizard spell per round. Her touch destroys undead creatures of less than divine power, reducing them instantly and forever to dust. She strives above all things to cast spells that restrain, charm, hold, sleep, or otherwise incapacitate persistent foes rather than casting damaging spells. Her smile alone charms and befriends all creatures of Intelligence 1 to 4.

  埃达丝可随意以24的飞行速度浮空或在空中行走。她投射着类似于 15呎半径沉默术silence, 15' radius 法术的 沉默silence 效果,要么是以她为中心、半径90呎的一个球体,要么是宽窄随她心意、以特定生物为目标、最多90呎长的一条路径。她还能运用 排斥术repulsion,而且她的抚摸或途经(在她纤足触及之处——或者如果她在凌空时,假设她在地面漫步理应履及之处——10呎之内),腐坏、疫病或污染将被自动 净化purifies,所有毒素将被中和。
Eldath can levitate and walk on air at will at MV Fl 24. She can project silence akin to the silence, 15' radius spell either as a 90-foot-radius sphere centered on herself or in a path up to 90 feet long and as wide or narrow as she desires so as to target specific beings. She can also employ repulsion, and her touch or passage (within 10 feet of where her feet touch—or would if she walked on the surface) automatically purifies tainted, diseased or polluted matter, and neutralizes all poisons.

其祂显现Other Manifestations

  埃达丝最常神临为一阵带来讯息的低语之风,让所触及的植物复苏直至健康绽放的程度;又或是一道带着女神所有治愈神力、发光的绿色灵光,它可大声发言,也可在120呎内之人的脑海中说话,还能遥控范围内无生命的物品。埃达丝也通过以下事务行动或展现她的眷顾:熊、浣熊、棕精、树精、海仙女nereid、feystag、仙灵sprite、牡鹿、能言猫头鹰talking owl、独角兽和其它林地生物、常见于草地和林地的花卉(如雏菊)、水生植物(如睡莲和荷花)、海蓝宝石aquamarines、透明水晶clear quartz、蓝色黄玉blue topaz、蓝宝石sapphire、以及其它呈现水色的宝石。
Eldath appears most frequently as a whispering wind that brings a message and revives plants that it touches to the blooming height of health or a green glowing aura that has all the healing powers of the goddess, can speak aloud and in the minds of those within 120 feet, and can telekinese nonliving items within its confines. Eldath also acts or shows her favor through the appearance or actions of bears, raccoons, brownies, dryads, sylphs, nereids, feystags, sprites, stags, talking owls, unicorns, and other woodland creatures, common meadow and woodland flowers such as daisies, water plants such as water lilies and lotuses, and aquamarines, clear quartz, blue topazes, sapphires, and other stones in watery hues.

  埃达丝的所有牧师、德鲁伊、专属祭司、武僧与秘术师得到 宗教知识religion(泛费伦Faerûnian) 作为非武器熟练奖励。埃达丝的所有祭司都必须选择 游泳swimming 作为一项非武器熟练。
All clerics, druids, specialty priests, monks, and mystics of Eldath receive religion (Faerûnian) as a bonus nonweapon proficiency. All of these priests of Eldath must take swimming as a nonweapon proficiency.

  埃达丝的教会小而松散,它大部分热心的祭司都在旅行和传教,或是在某处宁静之地定居,教诲那些前来寻求启蒙之人。在这个充斥着邪神与其仆从、兽人、地精、交战国与其他敌对势力的世界里,埃达丝那套和平与宁静的哲学未能流传开来就也就不足为奇了。不过,它仍然是项可行而充满挑战的事业,一些传说中讲述的英雄,如精灵战争英雄 特尔瓦Telva,便皈依了埃达丝的事业,永远地抛弃了战争。有一支名为 昂东蒂兽人ondonti 的和平主义兽人种族(详述于《散提尔堡的废墟Ruins of Zhentil Keep》)与埃达丝一道,逆着战争之潮而行。
The church of Eldath is small and dispersed, the majority of its most ardent priests traveling and preaching or settling by some quiet spot and teaching those who come seeking enlightenment. In a world brimming with evil deities and their servants, orcs, goblins, warring nations, and other hostile forces, it is not surprising that Eldath's philosophy of peace and calm has failed to catch on. Still, it is viable and challenging, and legends speak of heroes, such as the elven war hero Telva, who embraced the cause of Eldath and abandoned warfare forever. One race of beings who travel against the tide of war with Eldath are the ondonti, a pacifistic orcish race (detailed in the Ruins of Zhentil Keep boxed set).

  鉴于埃达丝专属祭司的限制与目标,她们数量不多也就不足为奇了。埃达丝的祭司中只有10%在该信仰中被称为 和平之人peacemen 和 和平之女peacewomen 的专属祭司。其余追随者则分为德鲁伊、牧师、数量非常稀少的秘术师、以及一支相对近期才建立的武僧组织。牧师、德鲁伊、秘术师和武僧虽然不像埃达丝专属祭司那样受到限制,但她们也被鼓励让自己的行为符合她们神祇所提出的方式。用防御性法术击败敌人、通过误导和操纵使敌人自己打败自己,是 埃达丝教徒Eldathyn(尤其是被称为“自由行者Freewalkers”的冒险者-祭司)的招牌技能。该教会松散组织中的大部分高阶成员都是和平之人与和平之女,信仰中的大德鲁伊们和其他资深神职人员会听取她们的意见。该信仰五大分支之间关系良好,该信仰更激进的两翼都非常支持和保护更为退隐的专属祭司、秘术师和武僧。
Given the limitations and goals of the specialty priests of Eldath, it should not be surprising that there are not very many of them. Only some 10% of the priests of Eldath are specialty priests, called peacemen and peacewomen in the faith. The remainder of the followers are split between druids, clerics, a scant few mystics, and a relatively recently founded monastic order. Clerics, druids, mystics, and monks, while not as restricted as the specialty priests of Eldath, are encouraged to conduct themselves in a fitting fashion as put forth by their deity. It is a mark of skill among Eldathyn (especially adventurer-priests, known as "Freewalkers") to defeat foes with defensive spells, making an enemy defeat himself through misdirection and manipulation. Most of the high-ranking members of the church's loose organization are peacemen and peacewomen, and the great druids and other senior clergy members of the faith defer to them in discussion. Relations between the five branches of the faith are excellent, and both of the more militant wings of the faith are very supportive and protective of the specialty priests, mystics, and monks, who are more retiring.

  和平主义者和热爱自然的人对翠绿女神情有独钟。她们中的许多人都是不愿意夺取生命的素食主义者和草药主义者,但在埃达丝教徒里有很多顽强的冒险者祭司,她们充当着其祂信仰的使者和城市信徒(通常是带领她们出入森林堡垒神殿)的中间人,并在信仰中的祭司之间传递物品和讯息。尽管要成为埃达丝的祭司,此人必须在费伦大陆广泛旅行,直至至少在九座献给女神的堡垒(神殿小树林)中祈祷,但大部分埃达丝教徒都居住在某片小树林或森林中,并在那过着自己的生活。
Pacifists and lovers-of-nature cleave to the Green Goddess. Many are vegetarians and herbalists who desire to take no life, but the ranks of the Eldathyn are studded with hardy adventurer-priests who serve as envoys to other faiths, act as go-betweens with urban worshipers (often guiding them to and from forest fastness temples), and carry items and messages from priest to priest within the faith. Although it is part of the making of a priest of Eldath that an individual must travel Faerûn widely enough to pray in at least nine sacred fastnesses (temple groves) dedicated to the goddess, most Eldathyn settle in one grove or one forest and live their lives thereabouts.

  埃达丝教徒的组织架构简单,在该体系中,有一位大祭司总领一国或一片大区,其下是向她汇报的资深祭司,每位资深祭司之下有一打左右的祭司向其报告,这些祭司每位都与最多14位置下级祭司一同居住。年资高、成就多、或位阶更高的神职人员被尊称为“崇高的exalted”,而旅行中的自由行者的位阶介于正式祭司与资深祭司之间。埃达丝神殿的首领是从崇高者的队伍中走出来的,大多主持着森林社区与被称为堡垒的露天神圣礼拜场所。作为堡垒首领时,她们有资格使用 堡垒守护者Keeper of the Fastness 的头衔。
Eldathyn are organized in a simple hierarchy where a dozen or so priests, each of whom may have up to 14 underpriests dwelling with him or her, report to a senior priest who in turn reports to a grand priest responsible for a realm or larger region. Clergy of senior years, many accomplishments, or higher rank are styled "Exalted," and traveling Freewalkers rank between full priests and senior priests. From the ranks of the Exalted come the leaders of temples to Eldath, most of whom preside over forest communities with open-air sacred places of worship known as fastnesses. As the leader of a fastness, they are entitled use the title Keeper of the Fastness.

教义Dogma:

  埃达丝的哲学高度发达。它教诲说和平只能来源于内在,而不能被教导或强加;它必须通过思考与冥想达到。埃达丝的信众应当寻求宁静,从而找到和平。无论在哪,她们都需要种植树木和其它绿叶植物,并照料它们所需。
The philosophy of Eldath is highly advanced. It teaches that peace can only come from within and cannot be taught or imposed; it must be reached through thought and meditation. The faithful of Eldath should seek stillness and thereby find peace. They are to plant trees and green-leaved things and tend such things when they need it, wherever they may be.

  埃达丝教徒被教导去培养与援助,而非限制与惩罚。当然,她们可以进行自卫而不受惩罚。埃达丝教徒只能为自卫而使用暴力,并且除非是为了防止自己或受其保护的其他人被害,否则她们不能杀死森林中的任何东西。
Eldathyn are instructed to nurture and aid and not to restrict or punish. They may defend but not punish. Eldathyn may work violence only to defend, and they may slay no thing of the forest save to prevent it from slaying themselves or another under their protection.

  埃达丝的所有信徒都需尽可能地援助埃达丝教徒同胞和西凡纳斯与梅丽凯的神职人员,并给予流离失所的森林居民,以及那些致力于保护各地池塘、湿地、河滨、溪边树林而工作的人提供援助、支持与庇护。她们必须发誓,除非是为了最迫切的需要外,不夺走无思考能力的生命,并向所有生命分享在流水中长出或是来自于流水的福泽,从而让所有人都能知晓并赞美埃达丝。
All worshipers of Eldath are to aid fellow Eldathyn and clergy of Silvanus and Mielikki whenever possible and to give assistance, support, and shelter to displaced forest dwellers and to those who work to defend ponds, marshes, and streamside woods everywhere. They must swear to take no thinking life save in direst need and to share with all beings the beneficial things that grow in or come from running water that all may know of and praise Eldath.

日常活动Day-to-Day Activities:

  埃达丝教徒经常花费一生去照料那些位受破坏之处,以确保它们在面对人类与其他掠夺者时能够幸存、甚至繁荣昌盛。埃达丝的祭司们在被焚毁的地方重新播种、清除植物的病害、建造巨石防火带、灌溉树木繁茂的地区、清理河床使河水能更快流动\或是出建立水坝减缓径流流速度、以及促进小池塘创造的生命。她们甚至与附近的林务员讨价还价,让他们在只在特定区域采伐,而不要去打搅其它林地。
Eldathyn usually spend their lives tending unspoiled places to ensure that they survive and even flourish in the face of human and other depredations. Priests of Eldath replant burned areas, purge areas of plant diseases, construct boulder firebreaks, irrigate wooded areas, and clear streambeds to make rivulets flow more swiftly or create dams to slow runoff and encourage the life created by small pools. They even make bargains with nearby foresters to cut only in certain areas and leave other woodlands alone.

  埃达丝憎恶那些恣意滥伐、贪得无厌的樵夫,那些用火作为武器的人,贪婪的磨坊主,以及那些污染了河流与其它水体的粗心者。她的神职人员们承诺,为了长远的成功,她们将致力于不惜一切最谨慎的手段来对付这些人。她们很少采取任何形式的公开对抗,以为这往往会给神职人员招致攻击——但藏踪匿迹的祭司可以不受阻碍的工作。
Eldath has a hatred of indiscriminate and greedy woodcutters, those who use fire as a weapon, and avaricious millers and careless beings who foul rivers and other waters. Her clergy are pledged to work against such individuals by whatever means seem most prudent for long-term success. They rarely resort to any sort of open confrontation for as long as possible as it tends to bring attacks down on the clergy—but hidden priests can work in opposition unhindered.

  埃达丝教徒也被要求观察和记录各种鸟类、野兽和植物的栖息地,以及这些动植物多年来总量与分布的变化。她们会定期向上级汇报这些情况,以便资深神职人员能够与那些西凡纳斯和梅丽凯的同侪协作,演绎地区生态的长期变化趋势。
Eldathyn are also charged with observing and recording what sort of birds, beasts, and plants dwell in what places and the changes in the amounts and locations of such flora and fauna over the years. They are to report such things to their superiors on a regular basis so that the senio clergy members, working with those of Silvanus and Mielikki, can interpret long-term trends in regional ecologies.

  为了筹措个人与教会的支持费用,埃达的祭司们可以从事以下职业:使用为教会之人所知、万无一失的 水占术water divination 法术,以充任 水卜师water-dowsers;草药师;制药师。鲜有埃达丝教徒居住在大型定居点中,但有许多人(通常是与受训过的守卫动物),住在位于城市或大镇便利车程内的泉边小屋内,以便能够成为当地民众的药品与药剂来源。埃达丝的神职人员全部被教会游泳,并经常把这项技能传授给非信徒,作为后者向教会和女神供奉食物与钱币的小献祭的回报。
To raise funds for personal and church support, priests of Eldath may act as water-dowsers by employing an infallible water divination spell known to the church, as herbalists, gardeners, or as potion-makers. Few Eldathyn live in large settlements, but many dwell in springside cottages—often with trained guard animals—within an easy ride of cities or large towns so as to be able to serve the local populace as sources of medicines and potions. Clergy of Eldath are all taught to swim, and often teach this skill to nonbelievers in return for small offerings to the church and the goddess of food and coins that the priests can use.

  埃达丝的神职成员在池塘或溪流中沐浴或漂浮时、站在瀑布下时、以及在用于定期冥想的小房间、洞穴或森林凉亭中时,将进行个人或基于个体的祈祷。在埃达丝教徒栖息的树林中,有许多森林小径通过原木桥跨越了溪流,原木桥上有一间小茅屋、茅屋地板上有洞或是活门,让这群最谦逊朴素的神职人员能让自己浸没于溪水中进行祈祷或沐浴。
Eldath's clergy members pray on a personal and individual basis when bathing or floating in ponds or streams, when standing under waterfalls, and in small chambers, caves, or forest bowers given over to regular meditation. Many forest paths in woods dwelt in by Eldathyn cross streams by means of log bridges bearing tiny huts with holes or trap doors in their floors, permitting modest clergy to immerse themselves for prayer or bathing. These are the most favored meditation spots for Eldathyn.

  祈祷必须在起床后、日落时进行,并在夜间必须再进行一次,在任何个人希望的其它时段也可以进行祈祷。在林地和偏远的荒野地区,对翠绿女神的礼拜应该尽可能地赤身裸露。一些惊魂未定的伐木人说,某些祭司冒险者站在水池中祈祷时,她们的武器在以在半空中沿着被灌注了魔法的轨道缓慢漂浮,以便在现场出现危险时随时待命。
Prayers must be performed upon awakening, at sunset, and at least once during the dark hours, and may be performed at any other time as personally desired. In woodlands and remote wilderness areas, worship of the Green Goddess should be done unclad or as close to it as is possible in a given circumstance. Startled woodsmen tell of certain adventurer-priests standing in pools to pray with their weapons drifting in midair around them in slow, enspelled orbits so as to be ready to hand if danger came upon the scene.

  翠绿典礼the Greening(位于 绿草节Greengrass)是埃达丝唯一的历法典礼,也是祭职者们唯一的定期聚会和节日。在此之前的是 初涌仪式Firstflow,因为冰层破裂、水体开始流动的时间差异,该节日在不同地方的时间也不尽相同。埃达丝教徒大规模聚集在一起的唯一其它场合,是在作为女神露天神殿或神龛的新场所进行的献祭。在这样的献祭仪式上,聚集在一起的神职人员演唱 堡垒圣歌the Chant of the Fastness。一尊埃达丝的化身总是会神临,祝福信徒们的努力,尽管她不一定会说话、也不一定会施展魔法,但她会将新圣地的任何泉和水在接下来的10天内都变为 埃达丝之水water of Eldath,并给予它复原和再生所有浸泡其中的生物的异能,直至她现身后的第二日黎明。
The only calendar-related ritual of Eldath, the Greening (Greengrass) is also the only regular gathering and festival of the priesthood. It is preceded by Firstflow, a festival held at different times in different locales as the ice breaks up and the waters begin to flow. The only other occasions upon which Eldathyn gather in large numbers are consecrations of new places as open-air temples or shrines of the goddess. At such consecrations, the assembled clergy perform the Chant of the Fastness. An avatar of Eldath always appears to bless her worshipers' efforts, though she may not always speak or work magic other than making any spring or water in her new sacred place into water of Eldath for a tenday thereafter and giving it the power to regenerate and heal all creatures immersed in it until the dawn following the day of her appearance.

主要崇拜中心Major Centers of Worship:

  埃达丝教徒最尊崇的信仰中心是位于 艾什普塔市Eshpurta 以东、安姆Amn 境内的 暗木林谷Duskwood Dell。在那里,里米利河River Rimril艾斯米尔河Esmel River 的一条支流)的河水,从 巨魔山脉Troll Mountains埃达丝山Eldath's Mount 西边悬崖通过 翠绿女神瀑布Green Goddess Falls 历经超过400呎的高度下降,然后通过一系列的池塘与小瀑布(被称作 台阶the Steps)进入 宁静之森 阿伦达斯王国Arundath(因埃达丝教徒常用来吓跑入侵者的蛇类动物,而最常被称为 巨蛇森林Snakewood)。在那里,至崇的瀑布守护者阿拉托斯·贝伦迪姆Most Exalted Fallskeeper Alatoasz Berendim 掌管着一座埃达丝教徒的树城,培训为翠绿女神的下级祭司,并派遣她们到费伦大陆各地去寻找在侍奉埃达丝之道上属于她们的地方。
The most revered center of Eldathyn worship is Duskwood Dell in Amn, east of Eshpurta. There the waters of the River Rimril, a tributary of the Esmel River, plunge down the western cliffs of Eldath's Mount in the Troll Mountains via the Green Goddess Falls in a descent of over 400 feet and thence through a series of pools and lesser falls (called the Steps) out into Arundath, the Quiet Forest (known most commonly as the Snakewood for the serpentine denizens the Eldathyn use to scare away intruders). Here Most Exalted Fallskeeper Alatoasz Berendim presides over a tree city of Eldathyn who train underpriests in the service of the Green Goddess and send them out all over Faerûn to find their personal place in Eldath's service.

  以拉扎德城Elah'zad 是一座位于 安奥罗克沙漠Anauroch 中的埃达丝教徒远古圣地,也是一处拥有强大力量的地方。对 贝戴蛮族the Bedine 而言,以拉扎德城是月亮女神 以拉Elah塞伦涅Selûne)的家园,但太阳女神 阿塔At'ar 因嫉妒 水之母the Mother of the Waters 的美貌,将月亮女神从此地驱逐、并将其变成了埃达丝的监狱。在这里有一片神圣的小树林,树林周遭环绕着一百口小泉眼,圣林中有一片湖泊,在湖泊的湖心以白垩质的半透明沙岩修筑着一座近圆的宫殿式寺庙——月之邸the House of the Moon,埃达丝可以选择借由任何进入其中的女性说话。(如果这位女性睡着了,女神将能直接和完整地控制她的身体。)在月之邸,埃达丝教徒的魔法物品可以通过祈祷和仪式祈求埃达丝的恩典来充能。
Elah'zad, an ancient Eldathyn holy site in Anauroch, is also a place of great power. According to the Bedine, Elah'zad was the home of the moon goddess, Elah (Selune), but At'ar the sun goddess drove her away and made it a prison for Eldath, the Mother of the Waters, because she was jealous of Eldath's beauty. Here Eldath can choose to speak through the mouth of any woman who enters the House of the Moon, a nearly circular palatial temple formed of chalky, translucent desert rock in the midst of a lake set in a sacred grove surrounded by over a hundred small springs. (The woman falls asleep and the goddess directly and completely controls her body.) At the House of the Moon charged magical items of the Eldathyn faith can be recharged through prayer and ritual by the grace of Eldath.

从属组织Affiliated Orders:

  埃达丝教徒的教会和重新焕发活力的 梅丽凯教徒Mielikkian 信仰最近发展得极其亲近。当 梅丽凯教暗影侠the Shadoweirs of the Mielikkian 信仰无法得到她们自己宗教的支持时,埃达丝教徒会为她们提供安静的避难所与补给。埃达丝教徒信仰也与 弹竖琴的那帮人Those Who Harp竖琴手the Harpers)关系亲密,后者是支在费伦大陆各地为善良而战、对抗崛起的强权(那些强权往往会危及所有自然生命)的组织。
The Eldathyn church and the revitalized Mielikkian faith have grown extremely close recently. Eldathyn provide quiet sanctuary and supply to the Shadoweirs of the Mielikkian faith when they cannot receive support from those of their own religion. The Eldathyn faith also has close ties with Those Who Harp (the Harpers), an organization working throughout Faerûn for good and against the rise of great powers, which tend to endanger all natural life.

  埃达丝的教会有一个由几位和平之女与和平之人构成的圈子,她们组成了一个名为 宁静者的仲裁官the Arbitrators of the Quiet One 的团体。她们自由地前往冲突地区,试图在导致暴力行为的长期分歧中充当调解人。她们聆听双方的意见、并试图找到一个中间点,而非通过公开的道德批判使问题两极分化。他们更喜欢去找到问题的核心,这样一旦问题得到了解决,在几个月乃至数年间就不会爆发。
The church of Eldath has a circle of a few peacewomen and peacemen who have formed a group known as the Arbitrators of the Quiet One. They freely go to areas of conflict and attempt to serve as mediators in longstanding disagreements that have led to violent acts. They listen to both sides and try to find a middle ground without polarizing the issues through overt statements of moral judgment. They prefer to find resolutions that get at the heart of a problem so that once dealt with it does not flare up again in months or years.

  埃达丝的武僧组织是 屈服之道门徒the Disciples of the Yielding Way,有时会被称为 张开手掌兄弟姐妹会the Brothers and Sisters of the Open Palm。这些武僧守卫着许多和平之人与和平之女居住的圣地,并在乡间游历,为隔绝偏僻的小树林与堡垒收集信息。她们从不会试图挑起暴力,但在捍卫自己、她们的职责、以及她们的圣地时,她们相当具备迷惑性地非常致命。
The monastic order of Eldath is the Disciples of the Yielding Way, sometimes known as the Brothers and Sisters of the Open Palm. These monks guard sacred sites where many peacemen and peacewomen dwell and travel the countryside gathering information for isolated groves and fastnesses. They do not ever seek to provoke violence, but are quite deceptively deadly when defending themselves, their charges, and their holy sites.

祭司的祭服Priestly Vestments:

  埃达丝的祭司们穿着朴素的绿色和蓝色长袍,上面装饰着水彩(蓝色、蓝色、半透明和乳白色)的准宝石和水样刺绣。专属祭司们穿着一系列的透明长袍,每件长袍上有不同的蓝色和绿色色调。长袍的衣袖和衣边被艺术化地裁剪地仿若翻腾的波浪或水波波澜的不规则状。所有神职人员都佩戴着一件作为圣徽的埃达丝徽记,徽记由涂漆的天蓝色圆盘制成,并且只要有可能,还将在彩绘上种植或贴上新鲜的蕨类植物。
Priests of Eldath dress simply in green and blue robes decorated with water-colored (blue, green, translucent, and opalescent) semiprecious gems and embroidery in water patterns. Specialty priests don a series of sheer robes, each in different shades of blue and green. The sleeves and hems of the garments are artfully cut to look ragged like tossing waves or water ripples. All clergy wear Eldath's symbol as a holy symbol; the sky-blue disk is fashioned of painted wood and fresh fern fronds are planted or affixed over the painted ones on the symbol whenever possible.

冒险装束Adventuring Garb:

  在野外,埃达丝教徒祭司们根据实际需求穿着,不过有些人喜欢以蓝色和绿色点缀衣物,并让袖边和衣边变得不规则,以模拟水沫。她们大多穿着点缀着苔绿的叶绿色长袍,灰色腰带,以及一袭棕色罩袍。和平之人与和平之女不披盔挂甲,其服饰与其法袍相似,由多层半透明长袍与盖在打底的半透明长袍或连衣裙上的搭肩衫组成。那些在深林中埃达丝教徒目击事件,产生了许多关于林中野人的传说。
Eldathyn priests dress practically in the field, though some like to accent their dress with blue and green and allow the sleeves and hems of their garments to become ragged to simulate frothing water. Most wear leaf-green robes with moss-green accents, gray sashes, and brown overcloaks. Peacemen and peacewomen wear no armor and sport garb similar to their ceremonial dress made up of multiple layers of semitransparent robes and tabards over an opaque foundation robe or dress. Sightings of Eldathyn in the deep woods have given rise to many legends of wild folk of the woods.

  ❖ Peacemen and peacewomen are able to cast remove fear (as the lst-level priest spell) once per day. This remove fear effects other magical fears, including the fear aura of the now-dead Bane and his specialty priests. It also dispels the effects of the pain touch of the pains of Loviatar.

  ❖和平之人与和平之女免疫劳薇塔的痛苦者们的 苦痛之触pain touch
  ❖ Peacemen and peacewomen are immune to the pain touch of pains of Loviatar.

  ❖在第15级,每日1次,和平之人与和平之女无时无刻都处于 庇护术sanctuary(如同1级祭司法术)。任何直接攻击者必须进行对抗法术豁免检定,否则将被完全忽略。
  ❖ At 15th level, peacemen and peacewomen have sanctuary (as the 1st-level priest spell) in effect on themselves at all times. Any direct attackers must make a saving throw vs. spell or totally ignore them.

  ❖在战斗中,和平之人与和平之女可以格挡攻击,直接从对手的攻击骰中减去其和平之人的力量奖励+1d6点。在第10级时,这个值变为力量奖励+1d10点。如果和平之人与和平之女进行了攻击,则在战斗剩余时间内将失去此能力。

5eFR<Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide.p028>埃达丝Eldath

翻译:咸鱼

埃达丝ELDATH

  埃达丝Eldath,和平女神goddess of peace 中立善良NG 生命Life,自然Nature 注入平静水池的瀑布Waterfall plunging into a still pool
  宁静者The Quiet One,从林守护者the Guardian of Groves,水之母the Mother of the Waters

Symbol of Eldath

  埃达丝是瀑布、泉水、水池、宁静、和平和僻静的林中空地之神。她被认为存在于许多这样的地方,特别是那些作为德鲁伊森林的地方。埃达丝也是安慰、医疗和平静之神。她的神水可以医疗疾病,治愈疯狂,安抚濒死者。
Eldath is the goddess of waterfalls, springs, pools, stillness, peace, and quiet glades. She is thought to be present at many such places, particularly those that serve as druid groves. Eldath is a goddess of comfort, healing, and calm. Her blessed waters heal the sick, cure madness, and comfort the dying.

  大多数农村都有属于埃达丝的池塘或林中空地。依照传统,这是留给他人反思的宁静之地。诸如池塘或泉水之类的水体通常用作祭品的存放处。如果圣地是林中空地,沿途穿过的溪流可能充当仓库,或者空地中突出的灌木或树可能是人们捆绑祭品的地方。典型的祭品是破损的武器,或争论的纪念品。当信徒许愿未来和平时,将这些祭品抛出。支持埃达丝的人大多数是和平主义者,或是那些亲眼目睹或经历过暴力事件的人。
Most rural places have a pond or a glade that locals ascribe to Eldath. Tradition dictates that it be a place of quiet reflection where others are left to their thoughts. A body of water such as a pond or a spring typically serves as a repository of offerings. If the holy site is a glade, a stream one crosses along the way might serve as the repository, or a prominent bush or tree in the glade might be the place where people tie offerings. Typical offerings are broken weapons or items that are remembrances of arguments, which the faithful discard while making a wish for peace in the future. Many of those who favor Eldath are pacifists or people who are troubled by violence they have witnessed or experienced.

  埃达丝牧师并没有组成大型教派,事实上他们在各处的圣地间徘徊,确保这些区域被照看,仍是甜蜜宁静之所。埃达丝的信徒通常亲近自然,与第一结社的德鲁伊结盟。攻击埃达丝牧师被视作禁忌,杀死一个据说会招来巨大的厄运。尽管这种信仰为他们提供了某种程度的保护,但埃达丝的大多数牧师更愿意避免冲突,而不是平息冲突。侍奉埃达丝的人乐意主持和平谈判和签署条约,但不能强迫其他人和谐相处。
Eldath's priests don't organize into large sects. Indeed, many are itinerant, wandering between various holy sites and shrines, seeing that the locations are cared for and that they remain places of sweet serenity. The faithful of Eldath are usually close to nature, and allied to druids, who count Eldath among the First Circle. It is taboo to strike a priest of Eldath, and killing one is said to bring great misfortune. Despite the measure of protection that this belief affords them, most priests of Eldath avoid conflicts rather than attempting to quell them. Those who serve Eldath are happy to preside over peaceful negotiations and to certify treaties, but they can't force others to engage in harmony.
