The Church of Sol and Luna is a duotheistic religion that worships gods represented by the sun and the moon. Sometimes it is referred to as the Church of Two Coins, as Sol or the sun is represented by a gold coin and Luna or the moon is represented by a silver coin.

Sol is highly regarded by farmers who depend on the sun for their crops to grow. Mariners tend to favor Luna, who controls the tides and provides the stars for navigation.

While the assignment of a gold coin for Sol and a silver coin for Luna would appear to slight Luna, the two gods are of equal importance; the occasional eclipse is Luna’s way of reminding worshippers of that.

Those from outside Eslandola might be shocked to learn that a principle teaching of the church is charity, as one should give thanks for each gold piece Sol provides by giving away a silver piece to honor Luna.

While increased giving frequently occurs after an eclipse, the main holiday of giving occurs at the first full moon after the winter solstice. It is considered one of the holiest nights of the year in the church, honoring Luna and the charity she inspires. In the days between the solstice and the full moon, followers donate to local charities. On the night of the full moon -- Merrynight -- followers give presents to the needy and help feed the hungry.

As a church member, Governor Guilder faithfully gives to the needy. With the full moon of Merrynight rising in the sky, Guilder, decked out in a green holiday suit, is busy at the Weelond orphanage. He has already delivered a large roasting bird and other food for a big holiday meal, and now he has a wagon full of more food supplies -- and other surprises for the orphans. Guilder directs his helpers to unload the wagon while, because he doesn’t want to flaunt his charity work publicly, he puts on a cap and fake beard to hide his identity from the kids.

Inside, while some of the kids are still eating, the disguised Guilder hands out presents!

The head mistress of the orphanage can’t recall seeing the children so happy, and is grateful the governor believes in the charity of Luna this Merrynight.

Great scene and two AMAZING shots. Wonderful, I love it!

I can't even decide whether I prefer the exterior or the interior.

Thanks! The floor exhausted a lot of my tile selection. As for the governor in green, I like to think of him here as Guilder Claus. :pir-grin:

Thanks! I think we need some counterpoints to the Faith in the game.

Thank you! FWIW, the build started as only the interior, but I realized it would be better if I included the exterior scene, both visually and for storytelling.

Im really loving the way the supports play into the wall so well... I think this is my fav so far

Thanks! I've been playing with those supports in a couple of other builds over the past few months, and working them in logically was one of my goals here.
