Here you can find the different tasks and Trials for the Trials of Arwii. The rules and requirements can be found on our Trials page!
Raising a child isn’t an easy task for a parent. And this, Arwii himself had to live it, despite his status as god and creator of this world.
Without the gentle and understanding presence of Kala by his side, he would have failed with his daughter, Donii.
From the wise gray bear, the god learned many things. She confided in him without fear or shame of the mistakes she had made when she had her first litter. But she told him about the many things she had learned. Among other things, she learned to be patient, compassionate and understanding deeply.
Wise Arwii learned from Kala. And he learned so much from her that he wanted to share what he had learned with other mortals, who would also need guidance.
So, with Kala’s assistance, he created a series of trials. Intended to test mortals as much as teach them how to raise their offspring. To show Patience, Compassion, and Deep Understanding. Once the trials were over, Arwii would give his blessing in the form of a bracelet created from his paws and marked with his emblem, proving all their success.
These trials became beloved by mortals who flocked to have the chance to have this glorious blessing. And this despite the dismal presence of K’Malou who sowed corruption and chaos in his path.
But everything came to a halt when, after fighting his brother, Arwii withdrew to the depths of his lair in the Caves that bore his name. Convinced that she had lost the love of her life, Kala also disappeared without a trace. Pilgrimages to the Arwii Caves became less frequent and finally stopped. Time erased the Arwii Trials from memory and the Caves remained unvisited for millennia…
…at least until the return of the Goddess Umbru, who brought back with her a lot of lost knowledge.
The Trial of Compassion
Show your beast letting prey go or defending an injured animal from other predators.
A small and lost animal baby cries for its mother. Show your beast helping the small one find its mother, protecting it until she comes back, or taking it to her.
Show your beast protecting or showing affection to someone they love.
Anger and quarrels are a common part of life, but how you end it is what’s important. Depict your beast showing mercy to a fallen foe in battle.
The Trial of Patience
Show your beast interacting non-lethally with a species not of their own.
An elderly beast/handler requires your help taking care of their cubs/children for a day. How does your beast help?
Show how your beast reacts to crying youngsters, either human or animal.
A chief of another tribe has requested help driving off a rogue animal, however no one is allowed to kill it. How does your beast help the chief?
The Trial of Deep Understanding
Show your beast communing with Arwii at the Sacred Pools deep in the main cave system or in a special place of their own choosing.
Now that your beast understands what it is to be a guardian and a teacher, show them guiding children (human or animal) either emotionally, spiritually, or physically.
Ancestors of the past have passed down many secrets and treasured knowledge that we use today. What ancestral knowledge or instinct does your beast possess? Or instead, perhaps they call up their ancestors for guidance and understanding?
Your beast seeks out the wisdom of a god and they’re shown a vision of themselves. What do they see?
