    伊洛里图(ELORITU)
隐秘真理(The Hidden Truth)
绝对中立
历史,魔法,秘密之神
信仰中心:Aucturn,卡斯卓韦(Castrovel),伊奥克斯(Eox), 伊达理号(Idari)
圣徽:       一枚由魔法符文组成的发亮圆环

伊洛里图是一位神秘莫测的神祇,其在数个千年以前就已经在不少世界上广受崇拜。当协约世界上的种族迈出太空冒险的第一步时,伊洛里图的信仰就早已根深蒂固,而早期的探险者们也同时在数个各有差异,彼此隔绝的文明中发现了对这位神祇的信仰。伊洛里图的教会声称祂来自一个叫哲门纳(Gemmenad)的地方,然而后者到底是一个位面,还是一个星系,还是某个在伟大彼岸的异界领域,则无人知晓。一些人相信Gap和格拉里昂的命运乃是寰宇中最为隐晦的秘密,而伊洛里图肯定与此脱不开关系,但即便真是如此,这也只不过是又多了一个要让诸神小心掩盖的秘密而已。

伊洛里图主张虽然科学技术能创造奇迹,但其仍然受到物理定律的限制,而唯有魔法才能超越这些桎梏,能通过魔法扭曲并利用宇宙自然法则的个体将会获得其他人梦寐以求的力量。这并非意味着伊洛里图反对科技。恰恰相反,魔法与科技都是凡人用以揭开宇宙秘密的工具。然而科技通常其设计初衷都是为了便于用户操作,甚至能凭直觉加以使用,魔法则总是更为难以理解,需要专心,训练和对无数代流传下来秘密的掌握才能精通。伊洛里图认为历史既是过去的故事,也是未来的指引,祂主张忽视历史的人终将重蹈覆辙。

毫不意外的是,许多秘术师(mystics)和科技法师都将伊洛里图作为魔法之神来崇拜。同时历史学家,Kasathas和异星考古学家(xenoarchaeologists)等这类不断寻求发掘过去的人们也在信徒之列。许多伊洛里图的神职人员和信众都是寻星者协会的一员,因为他们的工作经常涉及揭开新的秘密。伊洛里图的神殿里有着不少学习及研究魔法的学会,但其大多都用各种办法把自身隐藏起来,而且只对那些想要学习隐秘真理之道,并努力寻觅那些追求已久知识的人敞开大门。

伊洛里图其中一个最为显眼的秘密在于其圣徽之中:一个有着六个奇怪魔法符文的圆环。lashuntas在数个千年以前就已经把其中一个符文应用到自己的魔法之中,而直到kasathas带着另一个符文的知识到来之后,人们才逐渐清楚这背后还有某个更为宏大的游戏在进行着。如今,协约世界已经设法辨别出伊洛里图六枚神圣符文中的四个,每一个都与不同种族的魔法传统有着相应的关系。而知晓剩下两枚符文的会是何等奇怪的文明,以及六枚符文合在一起又会显露出怎么样的秘密,目前众人仍对此猜测不止。
劇透 -  原文:
Eloritu is a mysterious deity who has been worshiped on a variety of worlds for millennia. When the species of the Pact Worlds first ventured into space, Eloritu’s worship was already well-established, with early explorers encountering his faith simultaneously in several different unconnected cultures. Eloritu’s church teaches that he hails from a place called Gemmenad, but whether that is a planet, a star system, or some extraplanar realm in the Great Beyond is unknown. Some believe that since the Gap and the fate of Golarion rank among the greatest secrets of the universe, Eloritu must have had something to do with both, but if so, that is just one more secret that the god keeps carefully hidden.

Eloritu teaches that while science and technology can do wondrous things, they are constrained by the laws of physics. Only magic can supersede those restraints, and those who employ magic to bend and exploit the natural laws of the universe possess a power that others can only dream of. This does not mean that Eloritu is opposed to technology. On the contrary, both magic and technology are tools that mortal races can use to unlock the mysteries of the universe. But while technology is generally designed to be as intuitive and user friendly as possible, magical practices are often deliberately obscure, requiring dedication, training, and a mastery of secrets that have been passed down for untold generations. Eloritu believes that history is both the story of the past and a guide to the future, and he teaches that those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it.

Unsurprisingly, many mystics and technomancers worship Eloritu as the god of magic, along with historians, kasathas, and xenoarchaeologists who seek an understanding of the past. Many of Eloritu’s priests and followers are Starfinders, as their work always holds the promise of uncovering new secrets. Eloritu’s temples host academies of magical learning and research, but they are often concealed or veiled in some way, requiring those who want to study the ways of the Hidden Truth to work to discover the knowledge they seek.

One of Eloritu’s most obvious mysteries is that of his holy symbol: a ring of six strange magical runes. While the lashuntas had utilized one of the runes for millennia in their magic, it wasn’t until the kasathas arrived with knowledge of one of the others that it became clear that some greater game was afoot. Today, the Pact Worlds have managed to identify four of Eloritu’s six sacred runes, all related to magical traditions of different races. What strange cultures might understand the remaining two—or what secrets combining all six might reveal—remains anyone’s guess.
