'Unseen by others. Living in people’s blind spots… they are ayakashi.
They are everywhere. From those that hide to those that can fly.
I’ve even seen ones that ride on people’s shoulders. Big and small, there are all kinds,
but they are all the deceased, the residents of the other world.
They cannot be seen by people like us who live in this world. Even though they are so close by.
The only ones that can see them are animals and children.
And those like me who stand on the border of this world and the other world, people of the boundary.
They like depressing atmospheres. They call it gloom.
If they gather around you, you fall into a whirlpool of depression.'

In order to apply to answer a prayer, you must first meet the prerequisites for the prayer. The requirements listed are what you need to do, both IC and OOC, in order for the prayer to be considered answered. Any reward in blue is for gods and rewards in orange are for shinki. Please note that all expiration dates refer to In Character dates. Refer to the calendar if you are uncertain of dates.

Pre-Reqs and Results
For some general Prayer questions including how to answer prayers with only a Soulless shinki, here is the Prayers FAQ link. Write-up responses (with or without a Soulless shinki) to Prayers and Missions can be made directly to the prayer thread in a comment, or emailed to the mod account with the Prayer/Mission number in the subject line.
  • Comment counts must be met by characters going on the prayer or mission, i.e. the ones mentioned in the comment request for a prayer. Whether it's an NPC joining the thread or another PC character swooping in for a comment or two, none of those comments count towards the minimum required to turn in the prayer.
  • When the Pre-Req is a previous Prayer or Mission, you may respond to the same thread on this page to keep all of the comments in the same chain together. Alternatively, you may reply to the mod post and link back to the previous thread in which the pre-req was approved.
  • You may not request a Prayer or Mission and its Pre-Req at the same time. The Pre-Req must be approved before requesting the follow-up Prayer or Mission.
  • Only one participating character must fulfill the pre-requisite requirements. This means that a god with few followers paired with an experienced shinki, or vice versa a newer shinki paired with an older god, can still take on prayers or missions with a high pre-req follower/exp minimum.
  • For Missions: Additionally, some of these threads may sound open-ended in their results. That's because when you respond with your thread linked, we will be reading it and then responding with what you find! For NPC interactions (ayakashi or gods), we will expect a link earlier so that the thread can be handed off. The Missions where this is expected can be specially annotated, but at bare minimum the Mission Accepted response will prompt for when we need the thread response comment.

When you have completed the OOC and IC requirements for the prayer, you should reply to the comment where you claimed the prayer with a link to the thread where all requirements are met. OOC would be the number of comments and IC would be the goals of the thread, like comfort someone or destroy an ayakashi. IC requirements can be "met" if the thread has hit "forward momentum", i.e. it's an inevitable conclusion that the IC requirement will actually happen. For example: an ayakashi can count as "defeated" if the battle is underway and a bonded god-shinki pair is available to cast Rend. OOC pre-reqs and comment reqs are stricter; pre-requisite threads and minimum follower/exp counts** must be met prior to requesting the prayer/mission, then comment totals must be met during the prayer/mission.

Once the prayer is approved by a response from the mod account, the rewards will be granted to your character instantly, meaning they are added to your Follower/Exp totals. **So this means that follower/exp counts can be met based on the last updated totals from the Monthly Tag Counts plus any prayers/missions completed in the interim timeframe.

Each character may take up to TWO prayers at any given time. Once you have fulfilled one of those prayers, you may take on another one.

A maximum of FIVE played characters (so not including soulless shinki) can request any given prayer or mission. In order to get credit for any prayer or mission they participate in, any one character must have made at least 3 comments to the thread regardless of comment requirements. For example, 5 characters request a prayer only requiring 10 comments. If they turn the prayer in at 10 comments, only some of the characters - the ones that made 3 comments - will get credit for the prayer, so it'd be better to wait until at least 15 comments, or 3 comments per 5 characters.

Mod Roll Note:
For prayers requiring a mod d20 roll, the number you need to be rolled is listed (ie "6+" would mean you'd have to roll a 6 or higher). If you would prefer to automatically fail (for development reasons or otherwise), please note so in your comment. Any roll failures will not count towards completing the prayer, but you will not be deducted followers/exp for failing.

    There is a stray spirit, partially blighted, lingering near the stray animals. This spirit has been to the Far Shore, but asked to be unnamed rather than going nora. Then they were abandoned by the other god too. Convince the spirit of your superiority (if a god) in any way, or speak for your god (if a shinki).
