Religion

Worshippers ‘Default god’ of jhesiri (Ramdzasha is a greater god, but more distant… even the jhesiri are glad of that). No particular name, since ‘follower of Hadang Samptar’ and ‘jhesiri’ is seen as so synonymous.

Temples As Ramdzasha, plus burning houses (especially if normal inhabitants are still alive – bonus to any ceremonies).

Shrines As Ramdzasha, plus any burned building (not necessary to still be burning, nor necessarily a house) until the smell of char is gone.

Altars As Ramdzasha.

Holy Sites Razed settlement, whether by jhesiri hands or not, until rebuilt or overgrown.

Priests Barbarians (especially with the Madman archetype).

Priest Appearance Usually battle-scarred, often slightly maimed (missing bits), often some burn scars from fire or acid. Priests are the most fervent destroyers and enjoy getting close to their work.

Priest Training As Ramdzasha, and those jhesiri who take particular delight in ravaging the countryside find they sometimes gain divine abilities (gain cleric levels, and/or the barbarian class with the Madman archetype).

Dogma Always wander, never stay in one place more than one moon or return to a place within a year, take what you want and destroy or spoil the rest, propitiate me with the screams of the burning alive or join them.

Rituals Simple and violent, involving burning things alive that can scream.

Prayers “Enjoy the flames, the smell of the burning flesh, the screams of the dying, the coughs of the smoke-filled throats!” “Flames and death!”

Hadang Samptar epitomizes the outsiders’ view of jhesiri: marauding vandals and murderers who kill for fun and pleasure. This deity cares little for the lives of anyone, including his followers, and will goad his worshippers to greater atrocities just to hear the screams and enjoy the smell of melting, burning flesh.

As an aspect of Ramdzasha, Hadang Samptar’s herald and allies can be used by Ramdzasha. The converse is not true, since Ramdzasha’s other heralds and allies are drawn from her other aspects.

Like Ramdzasha’s temples and holy sites, Hadang Samptar’s temples and holy sites are opportunistic and temporary, empowered by death and destruction.
