Gaea: Dirge of Kings
The Pheonix, The Bringer of Adversity, and the Lord of Renewal: Ananke is the patron of farmers, laborers, and those who live off the land and the sweat of their work. Ananke is responsible for both famine and plenty, for the fire that burns away the harvest bringing new fertility for the next, for the collapse of the structure so that a new and more stable one may be built in its place, and in general for renewal and growth through change.
Priests of Ananke are among the rarest, for it is their duty only to spread his word, and his word is common knowledge to most farmers on Gaea. Where they do arrive, his clerics tend to serve as community leaders, or organizers. His temples often pull double duty as both shrine and town granary, archive, or similar civic building.
