((Yeah, it's nighttime and there are some beds and couches in the temple where the clergy lets you guys sleep.))

As the sun rises and meets your eyes, you awaken to the sounds of morning services for the Sun Queen.

"We shall follow your light," one priest says, "as dutifully we follow your laws. Hail to the Sun Queen!"

"Hail!" replies the hall underneath the sleeping quarters.

As you awaken and prepare yourselves, you find that a priest of the Moon Princess, being otherwise unoccupied, has prepared food for you. It isn't exactly a bountiful or delicious-looking breakfast, but it is enough to fill your bellies and prepare you for the beginning of the day. Anyone with points Knowledge: Arcana or Knowledge: Religion may make a roll on the food. Anyone with Magic Sight will see a faint remnant of a spell on the food, and may roll for Spellcraft.

To your collective right, you can see a wide open doorway leading to a you can see it is decorated with religious imagery of the Moon Princess, including a shrine placed prominently in the middle. Next to it, you can see Jordan the Fierce, head bowed before the shrine, with the High Priestess performing some kind of religious rite upon him.

(( I'll roll Knowledge(Arcana) on the food, and I want to roll Knowledge(Religion) on what ritual is being performed. ))

Knowledge(Arcana): [dice]0[/dice]
Knowledge(Religion): [dice]1[/dice]

With those rolls you determine that the food was created with the Create Food and Water spell. You can also determine that the ritual being performed on Jordan is a sendoff ritual. Something usually performed when it is uncertain whether or not a devout follower will return alive. In a sense, it is like a preemptive last rites ceremony, just in case his body cannot be recovered.

Black Cross happily accepts the food, and, looking at it, asks for salt. Even as the request is made she looks over to Jordan and asks the High Priestess about the ritual, slightly apprehensive about the answer.

If and when the salt is added, Black Cross whispers a short prayer to Urgathoa before eating.

There is salt on the table within easy reach.

The High Priestess, upon finishing the ritual, hears Black Cross' question.

"It is merely a sendoff ritual," she explains, "We know not how long he will be away, if this lead on the question of the True Followers will take him far away from Blevik, or what may be waiting for him. You needn't worry yourselves with it, today you have a mission, and Jordan seeks to lead you on the way. Please, eat as much as you like, you potentially have a long day ahead of you."
