Palanthas – On High Watch today the Temple of Mishakal will open its doors and invite the citizens of Palanthas to join in a celebration marking the anniversary of the death of Sister Emilianna Silverflow, the legendary cleric of Mishakal who, during the War of the Lance, persuaded the black Dragon Highlord Feal-Thas to spare the lives of hundreds of orphan children and who subsequently helped smuggle the children out of the White Dragonarmy's territory.
"Sister Silverflow was an immense inspiration for people back then as her courage and very calm demeanor in the face of an overwhelming enemy served to save the lives of hundreds of children and she remains an inspiration to today's clergy," said Brother Mycheal.
"We wish to honor her memory by hosting this celebration. This is mostly a day for the children with contests and all sorts of fun events but we promise the parents that they'll be well entertained as well. The faithful of the Bard King from the Song of Life has agreed to come and entertain so we'll have minstrels and all kinds of entertainers here. It should be a very fun day for all."
The celebration does not only serve to entertain the masses however. Brother Mycheal revealed that the day will be rounded off by a grand feast after which the clerics of Mishakal hold a grand ceremony in honor of their legendary Sister.
"As part of this ceremony we will officially rename our temple as well," Brother Mycheal revealed. "In this Age of Mortals we feel that people might see the deities above us in a different light and we want to remind people why we are here, that we are not just sequestered here in the temple. Therefore we have chosen to rename the temple and from tonight it will be called the Halls of Healing."
Brother Mycheal explained that using the phrase 'Temple of Mishakal' is by no means wrong and that it will probably take a while for even the clerics themselves to get used to the new name.
