Samas

The Lightbringer, the Divine Martyr, the Poet: Samas is the mad god of charity, light, and language. It is said that she is the one who introduced the written word to mortals that they might communicate better with each other, and she who ensured the stability of the cycles of day and night. Though her ceaseless compassion for mortals has come at the cost of her sanity, she is still prayed to by those seeking protection, kindness, and prosperity.

The priests of Samas are a loose order, sending their clerics out into the world to wander and do good works as often as they organize in cities to organize places of healing, and orphanages. Their temples are usually open to the public, and act as forums dedicated to the exchange of literature and language, the shelter of the needy, and the training of the young.
