Oracle of the Mournlands
The Undying Court
Often misunderstood by the uninitiated, the Undying Court on Aerenal is at its heart a form of ancestor worship. In the elven land, communion with spirits of the dead is far from uncommon. Some ancestors still walk in physical form—the collective term for these undead is the Undying Court.
The elves are not content with their long life spans and have found a way to preserve their ancestors beyond death, anchoring them to the world of the living through devotion and spiritual sacrifice. The Undying Court is seated in Shae Mordai , guiding the nation from there. Unlike other undead, The Undying Court are sustained by the devotion of their descendents and have no need for blood or life energy as other undead do.
The followers of The Undying Court see the Blood of Vol as abominations for feeding off of the living. The members of The Undying Court are not gods, they are ancient, wise and powerful. Like other religious leaders, members of The Undying Court can lend powers to their followers.
