Social Function Edit
War is a constant threat and often desire. Prayers to Telaria bring victory in battle, and also glory. She favors the bold and powerful, and the Temple of Telaria holds a prominent place for many nations. Metal-workers also worship her, and she gives her blessing to steel implements of all kinds.
The Temple of Telaria is a martial place, and there is a fighting pit within each one. Priests advance in rank through personal combat. Slaves and prisoners are brought to the temple to fight to the death as a sacrifice to her, and if they perform well they are granted freedom. These fights gather crowds eager for blood-sport. Crows are holy to her, since they are found on every battlefield.
