The moons are called by many names among the denizens of The Coin, but few have devoted as much time to the study of these mysterious orbs as the druids of the Circle of the Moons. The lore of the moons has been passed down and built upon for thousands of years since the days when the druids first separated themselves into separate Circles of knowledge. Song and chant, poem and tome, all works of druidic scholarship of the moon domain seek to elucidate these luminous bodies and illuminate their effects upon The Coin.
Many names have the Moons, but each is known by just one name to the druids. The following is the briefest possible outline of the attributes of the moons and their druidic names. Readers should by no means take these descriptions as anything other than a merest glimpse of the rich depth of study undertaken by the druids. Each moon is paired with its twin, sometimes taken as opposite, but by the druids, taken as complement. The format used is Moon Pair name, followed by individual attribute/druidic name.
In no order other than that found in the earliest surviving druidic text mentioning them, here is the list of the names of the Moons:
Drudos (the most important moons to the druids) – Nature/Quarr & Magic/Abdenegus
Adagnitio (often favored by mages and rogues) – Knowledge/Pi & Trickery/Ham
Caltruminox (beloved of warriors) – Tempest/Xosto & Discipline/Kammak
Circumago (honored by clerics) – Death/Lythronax & Life/Maya
Umbrux – Light/Illumnos & Dark/Absentos
