ER:Brother Carter

From The Heretic Knowledge Vault

Jump to: navigation, search

A minor non-player character in the Errant Road on-line free-form role-playing game. Needless to say, he doesn't appear in the Poe-verse -- or more accurately, didn't, as alas, he's no longer with us.

Brother Carter has never actually been seen in the game proper, but he put in a brief appearance in a flashback sequence as Brother Miguel was remembering a scary moment from his youth on the Southern Continent. He was one of a band of missionaries of the Veracian Church that intervened to keep Miguel from being sacrificed to a tree by a tribe of misguided(?) nature worshipers. Later on, after he and Miguel went their separate ways but long before game time, he died on the Southern Continent, apparently of some manner of illness.

A statue memorializing the good Brother is on the outskirts of the small town of Cartish, and is seen by Sister Rose, Argus, and friends as they journey south from Lorenzel. An elderly woman of Cartish named Edith, apparently Carter's aunt, tends the statue and preserves his memory. Rose and colleagues meet Edith there as she's decorating the statue and learn some of his story, which can be found here. This proves interesting for his connections to the late, lamented Father Egbert, who had been the object of Rose's, Argus' and Miguel's search efforts for a long time, and whose peculiar death had badly unsettled Rose ... and had some other consequences too.

All told, he was apparently one of the Good Guys, and the party treated his memorial with due reverence and respect.
