The main function of the monastery should be obvious, to meet the religious needs of those interested. This however, does not complete the entirety of the list. While we do not know for sure just how many skills we will be able to support, there are goals for what we will be hoping to have in our midst; * Farming Plants/Animals * Alcohol Production (primarily wines) * Cooking (primarily simple foods to support homeless and members) * Glass Blowing (primarily for bottle production) * Carpentry (primarily for barrel production) * Other, various forms of personal skills each member might bring, such as scribes, candlemaking, beekeeping, etc... We want our members to focus on the needed skills, but having a hobby skill is not discouraged with current knowledge of the game. If provisions allow, we may even support a small library, or provide religious texts to a local library if another one is opening.
While making plans, we take into consideration our lower degree of concrete knowledge of what the game will allow, but I have been assured by our local Count, Count Abbott Lark of Pevensie in the Vornair Kingdom, that we will be backed by his support. This means that we will be operating under the benefits of a supportive high ranking office holder, who seeks to improve the order, and those who follow it, in growing our skills and helping the county with religious needs.
Below will be a list of services we definitely will be providing, some right from the start, some may come with time and negotiations, some may not come at all depending on game functions.
Weddings will be provided to two people (of any gender identities) who decide to bond their lives into one Holy recognized marriage or union (depending on their preference). Depending on game function, these weddings will either be official, or more of an official blessing from the church, friends and/or family.
Funerals are a sad time for all, but with proper handling, can be time to mourn the passing, and celebrate the accomplishments of those who we follow in life. We will provide shelter for those who wish to pass into the Akashic Records within holy walls, allowing family and friends to visit if desired. Upon a passing, if possible, we will provide a funeral service, and either ceremonial or actual cremation services (depending on what is available in game).
Reformation is something criminals are often offered. Those incarcerated, may be permitted, based on game function, to ask for a holy figure to come and speak with them while incarcerated. Should this be possible, we will provide such service when available upon request of the incarcerated.
Blessing a home or business might be a way to ask for the Twins' mercy or prosperity. Have you or your family just moved or opened a new business? Maybe asking the church to bless it would bring better luck or fortune, We will also provide personal blessings, and may even draw from other real cultures, like shinto shrines in Japan providing random luck (either good or bad) for the year.
Confession will be provided to those who have a guilty conscious, and wish to ask the church for help. Committed a crime and want forgiveness from the Twins? Fine, come ask and you will be forgiven by them. However, while we will not make attempts to arrest you (as we're not the town guard), we will, for your penance, ask you to pay for your crimes or wrongdoings in exchange for that forgiveness.
Holy Quests are a rare, but worthy treat provided to those who have followed the teachings. Knights and warriors who seek to improve the order will be able to do so by going out in the name of the order, bringing back to the church artifacts found. In doing so, you would be entitled to high praise from the church, and be able to retain a portion of the findings as payment.
And more... Depending on the exact abilities in the game, we may provide a huge list of other tasks, and should we have people with talents appropriate, may even provide those as services. Costs will usually be based on expectation of the church, or by available donation. Those who regularly tithe may not be asked to pay anything as thanks for the regular donations.
