On Lorewardens of Vorin
A brief Explanation by N'uquerni Delothion, Lorewarden of Vorin.
The origins of the Lorewardens go back some 250 years. A legendary Loremaster of Vorin, an Elf named Llyntmos Ty'zllhat, created the Lorewardens that are now the single most common position within the Church of Vorin. Though most non-Vorinites have never heard of him, he is revered as the greatest master of Lore among the followers of Vorin.
The Lorewardens he created were tasked with the collection, organization, classification and publication of knowledge. Lorewardens work for the church, they are not clergy, and hold no real power or standing, they simply are. The vast majority of Lorewardens never leave their library or church where they work. And so, even though they are plentiful in number they are rarely seen.
Some do however venture forth into the world, usually on a mission to find specific knowledge or to continue their research outside their cloisters, when the source material isnt present.
Some Lorewardens specialise in a certain topic, or a realm of topics, others are generalists seeking to understand a broad variety of topics, there is no hard and fast rule on Lorewardens. For myself, I specialise in the Gods first and foremost, but also have interests elsewhere. Others know history, or alchemy...
Often I am asked, "How may I become a Lorewarden?" It is a simple task really, followers of Vorin may get in contact with the church here and apply..it is not hard. Though you may find the work hard, it has its own rewards.
If anyone has questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. As of late, I find myself doing some research at the Avlis tower University...you may seek me out there and I will be happy to share with you.
