Evolution of the Order
Chapter 1: In the beginning the Prophets formed the Order
The Order of Kampar is a religious faith governed by 5 Prophets. The Kamparian Prophets are the authority on the Great one Kampar, and the 12 Deities and scholars of their philosophy.
In The beginning it was these 5 Prophets, then miners and prospectors, who following their instincts were drawn to the planet Kamparas in the Kamparas system, each with a kind of gut instinct that what they sought was there to be found and more plentiful than any of their mineral deposits previously found.
Upon reaching their first destination on the planet Kamparas to be scanned for mineral wealth, the small prospecting and drilling team felt that this was different. With their senses screaming the Prophets found themselves operating under complete euphoria.
It was their then leader, the Bothan known as Kurner Dahtar who discarded the terrain scanners aboard the prospecting vehicle to set out on foot across the grasslands. With euphoria turning to trance the group of 5 trekked for days, lead by Kurner, without food, water or sleep, simply compelled to follow the calling that pulled so strong.
After days of trekking across Kamparian grasslands the groups leader stopped, 'our place is here', pronounced the Bothan and seconds before the last word left the Bothan's lips the ground they stood on collapsed and the group of 5 were swallowed up by a great cavern.
The days that presided did not hold the euphoria that the prophets felt leading up to their initial discovery, but a mind ripping experience of shattered vision and foretelling, an experience they would later tell brought them to the edge of the after life in a painful experience that for years to come would remain a mystery to the prophets and something they didn't wish to revisit...if only they had a choice.
Regaining their minds the Prophets woke to find themselves surrounded by ancient ruins within the great cavern. Pillars lay scattered throughout the cavern, most in ruin, broken in collapse with few surviving time and standing as strong as when they were first carved out of stone. Each of them completely covered in ancient glyphs and pictorials of events long since passed. Toward the centre of the cavern however stood the greatest find of all, a large temple comprised of large stone blocks in the form of a pyramid.
Within the great pyramid, much a victim of time as with the pillars, the Prophets found ancient scrolls made of hyde, weapons and jewelery to name a few. By year 11, standard galactic time, thousands of artifacts had been recovered.
The following months filled the Prophets with intrigue and shrouded them in mystery, nothing more so however than their new ability to read the ancient glyphs found on the walls, pillars, scrolls and other artefacts as though it was their first language. In these months the Prophets had deciphered dozens of texts, depicting the great one Kampar and the creation of life, the 12 deities, Shaman and an age long since perished along with ceremonies and rituals that would once again give birth to an Order of enlightened.
With this knowledge the Prophets founded the Order of Kampar. An Order devoted to the reawakening of Kampar and devoted to the 12 and their disciplines, placing the Bothan Kurner Dahtar as leader and caretaker of the Order where it would flourish within the Kamparas system where over 75 million beings of all races would flock to know more about Kampar, his 12 and find guidance by the Prophets of Kampar.
