The Mysteries of Daoine Sidhe

The rules of Daoine Sidhe are based on the Mysteries, a number of Celtic rituals.
These Mysteries have been made a long time ago, by the Sorcerers from Daoine Sidhe. They were made to honour the Daoine Sidhe members, their awakening, their strengthening, their ideals, their death, the ones they succeeded, and many other matters that make the clan what it still is today.

For a long time the Mysteries remained a secret, beheld by only the most important members of Daoine Sidhe and no one else, but as the rituals slowly lost their power during the weakening of the Old Way they became nothing more than dates on a calendar these days.

Nowadays some are still used to celebrate and have tournaments, but most have been abandoned, and will only be reminders of the many proud years Daoine Sidhe had before the current times.
  • The Mystery of Tradition.
    The 16th of March is the day this Mystery was celebrated. This day all knights of Daoine Sidhe were asked what they have reached that year, and after that a large hunt for the creatures of the Horde was organised. For this was the eldest of the Mysteries, having it's origin in the time when the alliance of The Red Dragon still rules, these celebrations are the celebrations of the Red Dragon. However, with the growing apart of Daoine Sidhe and her allies with The White Marten this ritual was abandoned during the years of the alliance's existence.

  • The Mystery of Consecration.
    On the 17th of May new Knights of Daoine Sidhe used to be consecrated, and members of the clan could marry during the Beltane celebrations. This Mystery has not been abandoned, the rituals still remain, but the day of marriages are no longer always on Beltane.

  • The Mystery of Survival.
    The celebration of this Mystery was on the 19th of July. All clans united with the Kingdom of The White Marten were asked to join tournaments organised to hunt down Player Killers. But, as this alliance lost it's power, so did this Mystery and eventually it was forgotten completely.

  • The Mystery of Loyalty.
    This Mystery was celebrated on the 14th of September, the day the knights of Daoine Sidhe honour their loyalty, on the Day of Loyalty. The Mystery had been slowly forgotten ever since the knights were under severe attack of their enemies, and showed nothing but loyalty all year through, which saved Daoine Sidhe more than once.

  • The Mystery of the Royal Runes.
    The 22th of October is the day this Mystery is celebrated with a meeting about the functioning of the Royal House of Daoine Sidhe in which all members can ask questions, and suggest improvements. This day is called Gwendolyn's Day (The first High Priestess)

  • The Mystery of Maturation.
    The day this Mystery was celebrated is the 17th of December, when all promotions for Daoine Sidhe members were discussed with the clan. This day, also called Kadgar's Wisdom, (The first Merlin) is the day on which for three years new appointed leaders of the Kingdom of The White Marten, officially chosen the day before, were installed. But with the death of the alliance of The White Marten this ritual was abandoned.

  • The Mystery of Death.
    This last Mystery teaches how a knight, that left the Kingdom of Daoine Sidhe forever, should be honoured and remembered by its followers. There is no special day for this Mystery, it depends on the date one of the loyal knights dies, and the funerals are called Fathach's Days.
