Induction Ceremony

“Vigilance, selflessness, devotion, bravery and discipline. Those words are our creed, Nightblades. Each one of you have been chosen to answer a calling – the highest calling. There is no greater purpose than to serve our Goddess, our Mother, Elune, and be the glaive that is wielded in protection of our people.”

The Induction Ceremony serves as a recruit’s formal entry into the Nightblade cadre. The ceremony is the time where the recruit will make their formal commitment to serve the Goddess and Her people through the Nightblades. As a sign of their commitment and sacrifice, the recruit will be asked to present a small token of some kind, a symbol of the life they have chosen to leave behind in favour of serving with the Nightblades. The recruit will then place this token into a ritual bowl and if the sacrifice is acceptable to the Goddess, Her blessing will be bestowed upon the recruit. At the completion of the ceremony the recruit will be given their official recruit feather; an owl feather coloured a soft blueish teal.
