Pholtus of the Blinding Light is the Oeridian god of the Sun, the Moon, and all stellar bodies that give off light and follow rigid cycles through the heavens. He is also the inflexible god of Law, Order, and Resolution.

Cult in the World

Though he is not truly aligned with the solar fire or the lunar cyclic runes, it is said that Pholtus carved the paths they follow through the heavens, and it is by his runes of Mastery and Light that he rules them both. Followers of Pholtus believe themselves to be on the One True Way, a path of righteousness that allows for no deviation of faith but promises blessings everlasting.

Pholtus’ High Holy Day is the 5th of Fireseek, with lesser celebrations on the fifth of each month. A special festival, held in the Theocracy of the Pale from the 1st through the 5th of Wealsun, is known as the Festival of Blinding Light. Temples to Pholtus are typically constructed of the purest white marble, and kept polished to a brilliant sheen.

Vestments for Pholtus’ clergy are similarly white, with silver or gold accents to indicate rank and status.
