I would probably be a lay member of Lord Ksárul's temple. For all my life I have been cursed/blessed with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, but unlike the "knowledge for knowledge's sake" attitude of the temple of Lord Thúmis, there was a time in my life, not too long ago, that I was seriously considering pursuing a career within the Intelligence community. If the "Wilderness of Mirrors" is not a perfect metaphor for Ksárul worship; I don't know what is.
I'm not exactly hip on the thought of human sacrifice, but that is perhaps unfairly projecting my modern, American, Earth-bound sensibilities on a profoundly different situation. Were I raised from birth KNOWING the unimpeachable reality of the gods, and that these entities had, in fact, made their precise wishes known on numerous occasions, I would undoubtedly be far less squeamish.

On the other hand, I would probably get along pretty well if I were in a clan that worshiped Lady Avanthé, and were I stuck with a gray kilt and ink-stained fingers, I wouldn't chafe TOO terribly much.

An act of devotion to something larger than you can conceive and which may choose to benefit or slay you.

Time, cycles, worlds, life, destiny...

Keténgku. I don't think I'm selfish enough to be Ksárul or Grugánu, but I do seek knowledge and would wish for improvements to society as a whole, rather than just myself. That and I also believe in knowledge with application, not just theoretical. Grugánu in particular seems just a little to fruitless for me, searching everywhere for something you may never find. Mind you, Ksárul and Grugánu would probably be my first choice if I was to choose to play a game (not that I've taken part in any yet) as a bit of a rebel. That or Hrü'ü/Wurú.

A tad late but I don't come here often. I discovered Tekumel
back in the EPT RPG day & have had a fascination with The
Lord of Worms :oops:
