Arcadian Nights: Tales of the Magical Lands
Gallows is the god of the dead, he is judge as well as executioner. Gallows is a humorless god that understands his job is necessary. He does not seek praise from his followers or stand apart from them. Death is simply a part of life, and for those he judges worthy, the afterlife is one of great pleasure. He is ultimately fair and those that he believes are redeemable are afforded a chance to redeem themselves as Gallow Knights.
Gallows’ churches have two separate orders within it, The Order of Chailgéalt is the order of Gallows Clerics and Priests, the Order of Chailridáire is Gallows order of Paladins and other holy warriors. These orders serve their townships by helping ease death for others. The Clerics serve the temple with rites, and by protecting the sacred ground of graveyards from the undead. The Paladins serve as temple guardians and judges in small townships. Both the Clerics and Paladins of the order can, and do, join adventuring parties.
