The Coven of Amaranthe 

The Coven of Amaranthe maintains belief in the cyclical nature of life and
death, and the importance of embracing and celebrating these cycles through
ritual and revelry. Families and friends are to be cherished, and special
occasions both domestically and in the world at large are always a cause for
rejoicing. While the Coven does follow a religion of nature, it is not only
of reverence for the wild, and also places a great deal of respect for mortal
family life and agricultural communities. Still, the Coven's adherents preach
to hearken back to a simpler time, to avoid the trappings of expansive
civilization and industry, lest they minimize one's connection to the Great

Members of the Coven draw their power of faith from the entirety of life's
cycles, as made manifest by the Three Aspects of the Goddess:

   - The Maiden: Manifest through Fertility, the Maiden represents youth and
     beginnings. Those serving the Coven through the Maiden are most often
     concerned with creation and the nurturing of life, and are sometimes seen
     as playful or flighty harbingers of beauty and joy.

   - The Mother: Manifest through the Seasons, the Mother represents constancy
     and endurance. As a nurturer and a protectress, the Mother inspires
     stability and dedication in those that serve the Coven through her.
     Those serving the Mother are often seen as warm yet solemn, sometimes
     offering admonitions as often as they offer comfort.

   - The Crone: Manifest through Death, the Crone represents destruction
     and endings. She is wisest of the Aspects, and also the least forgiving.
     Those serving the Coven through her are often known to display willful
     bouts of fury and decay, culling the weeds from the garden that is
     the Great Cycle.

No matter the Aspect a member of the Coven is focused upon, all have their left
palms adorned with a tattoo of an ornate mandala as a symbol of the Cycle.

Those seeking to join the Coven should look to where the fields are fertile and
the harvest is near. Be warned, however, that souls too deeply tainted with the
darkness of mortal frailties are not welcome to cross her threshold.
