The Butlerhood of Jeeves (deity)

The Symbol of Jeeves
During one of his travels along the eastern coast some miles south of Horsehead, Billobi Rustfoot stumbled upon the small town of Woostershire in which he came to learn about the Reginalds, also known as the Butlerhood of Jeeves.

The whole town of Woostershire was built around a big church, that didn't in any way look like any church Billobi had seen before. It was built as a regular, rectangular two-story building, much like his old school. The church was in fact a school, dedicated to teach the words of Jeeves. Billobi had never heard of this deity, although he admitted that he wasn't much of a believer.

The followers of this deity were called Reginalds, and their mantra was "To serve". To become a Reginald, one must fulfil the biddings of his master, to constantly strive to be the best of butlers. This is the way of the Reginalds, written down by the Great Servant Jeeves. The Most Loyal Servant (the highest of titles in this church) even let Billobi see their most sacred artifact, the Linen of Jeeves, a white piece of cloth upon which three spells were written down, along with several commandments. At the bottom of the linen two words where engraved: "To Serve".

The three spells written down by the Great Servant Jeeves were Make Bed, Hold Tray and Recommend, all cleric spells.

Make Bed
Range: Touch
Duration: Immediate

"The bed of your Master, may never be left a disaster!"
- from the Linen of Jeeves

This spell simply makes someone's bed, preferably when it's empty.


Hold Tray
Range: Caster
Duration: One evening

"To help thee fight gravity!"
- from the Linen of Jeeves

This spell helps the caster avoid fatigue in his arms while holding trays during banquets.


Recommend
Range: Caster
Duration: 1 hour

"Wine and dine!"
- from the Linen of Jeeves

This spell let's the caster suggest the right type of wine to any kind of dish, with local specialities prioritized.

  1. I will not ask how you came to think of these spells but they are briliant. I especially like the Recommend spell. When casting it the caster does not even have to feel pretentious for ttrying to act like he does know what the write wine to the current dish is. He actually does know. Fantastic!

    But... Jeeves wasn't a butler! He was a valet, a gentleman's personal gentleman, although of course, when the call comes he buttles with the best of them.
