Rank 0 - Nivå 1
Sarenrae (uttales SAIR-in-ray) er en god og elskende gudinne, en beskytende moder og søster til alle i nød. Hun har stor glede i helbredelse for de syke, løfte opp de fallne og være et skinnende ledelse lys in til de mørkeste hjertene og land. 
Rank 1 - Nivå 2
When the primal forces created Golarion, Asmodeus planted a malignant evil in the world under cover of perpetual darkness. The doctrine of Sarenrae’s faith tells how the Dawnf lower brought light to the world, and with it came truth and honesty. Those who had turned to evil saw their wickedness and were forgiven by the light of Sarenrae.
Rank 3 - Nivå 3
Utseende til Guden
Religious art depicts the sun goddess as a strong woman with bronze skin and a mane of dancing flame. While one hand holds the light of the sun, the other grasps a scimitar, so that she might smite those who do not change their ways.
The Dawnf lower’s avatar looks as she is shown in art, though she often manifests wings like her angelic minions. The sunlight her avatar bears in one hand sometimes drips down to collect as liquid light which can provide illumination, healing, or sustenance, while her scimitar generates blasts of wind that blow away sickness and despair.
Her herald is Holy Sunlord Thalachos, a platinum-skinned angel always accompanied by 11 immortal doves.

The goddess welcomes all non-evil deities and treats most of the evil ones pleasantly in the hopes of convincing them to abandon their evil. She eyes Asmodeus warily, as the two have a long history of battling over souls. Despite her disgust at Urgathoa’s undead followers and disease, the Dawnf lower tries to find some way to “help” the other goddess become whole again. Rovagug is her only declaredfoe, for his mindless destruction opposes her generous nature and she still remembers the sting of his attacks in the battle where she imprisoned him ages ago.
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 3
Her faith attracts those with kind hearts, but only those willing to harden them when kindness is a dangerous weakness.
Sarenrae is a popular goddess and worshiped by people of many interests, from the obvious farmers and healers to governors, honest jailors, redeemed evil-doers, and those who wish to make the world a better place. City-folk who have no particular interest in fate, farming, magic, or esoteric philosophy make up the bulk of her worshipers, regular people who believe in honest work, relief from suffering, and the idea that each new day brings hope and renewed opportunity.
Most of Sarenrae’s priests are clerics, though there are many paladins and rangers and a smattering of sun-druids and sun-bards.
Kirken av Sarenrae, Rank 3
The church of the Dawnf lower is extremely flexible and allows its priests much mobility between temples. This helps diffuse pressure from personal feuds, as one priest can relocate to another temple until tempers cool.
Tegn i fra Guden
Sarenrae indicates her favor with sightings of doves or through the shapes of ankhs appearing in unexpected places. Other signs of Sarenrae are rays of dawn or dusk sunlight lasting far longer than they should, the discovery of yellow stones or gems, or the sudden soothing of aches and pains. Her displeasure is most often made apparent through unexplained sunburns or periods of blindness that can last anywhere from only a few moments for minor transgressions to a lifetime for unforgivable sins.
Sarenrae is the patron goddess of summer, for this is the time when the sun burns longest and brightest in the sky. Her two major holidays fall in the summer, when her influence is strongest. The first is the celebration of Burning Blades, on 10 Sarenith. This feast day is a culmination of a month-long festival in Sarenrae’s honor, capped by the dipping of ceremonial blades in tar and pitch, then setting them aflame and wielding them in dances of dizzying intricacy.
On the summer solstice, just a few weeks later, comes the Sunwrought Festival, celebrated with fireworks, gifts, dancing, and reenactments of great battles said to have been fought by the Dawnflower. A young maiden, dressed and jeweled to resemble the goddess, finishes the official festivities by wielding a flaming scimitar and destroying a representation of Rovagug. They say that Sarenrae pays special attention to her faithful on this day, and that those who follow her path find her blessings for the year when the day is done.

They are responsible for blessing farmland, organizing planting and harvest celebrations, tending to the sick and injured, guarding or rehabilitating criminals, or simply preaching to others using simple parables. Like their goddess, priests of the Dawnf lower tend to be caring and understanding, which makes them naturally suitable for working out disputes between neighbors or family members. Swordplay, particularly with the scimitar, is held to be a form of art by her followers.
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 5
A priest normally wakes around dawn and makes a thankful prayer toward the rising sun.
Formal raiment includes a long white chasuble and tunic decorated with red and gold thread depicting images of the sun, and officiating priests usually wear a golden crown with a red-gold sunburst device on top. Scimitars inlaid with gold sunbursts or golden gems are common ceremonial implements.
Sarenrae brushes off insults and def lects attacks, patiently trying to convince those who perceive her as an enemy that their belief is false. She is no victim, and once it is clear that her words and power are wasted on those who refuse to listen and believe, she responds to violence in kind, with swift metal and scorching light. She dislikes cruelty, lies, quenching darkness, needless suffering, and thoughtless destruction.
Hellige Tekster, Rank 5
The one book common to all churches of Sarenrae is The Birth of Light and Truth . This text is unusual because it includes stories from times before Sarenrae was a true goddess, describing the creatures she faced and including a long list of names of fiends and horrors she destroyed long before mortals learned writing, and most copies contain extra pages for the owner to record new experiences.
Templer og Helligdommer
Temples are open-air buildings (with satellite buildings having ceilings) open to the sky, sometimes with large brass or gold mirrors on high points to ref lect more light toward the altar.
One of the most popular and holy sites of the faith is the Everlight Oasis in Zelshabbar, one of the satrapies of the Empire of Kelesh. This pool, reported to have rejuvenating qualities, is said to be blessed by the goddess.
Rank 7 - Nivå 5
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 7
Martial-minded priests seek out evil in the hopes of redeeming it or destroying it if redemption fails. They understand that undead, mindless beasts, and fiends are essentially beyond redemption and don’t bother wasting words on such creatures. The church is not averse to using spells like lesser geas and mark of justice to help guide malcontents toward goodness.
The clergy of Sarenrae are usually peaceful, administering to their flock with a gentle hand and wise words. Such kindness vanishes, however, when the church is stirred to action against an evil that cannot be redeemed—particularly against the cult of Rovagug. At such times, Sarenrae’s priests become dervishes, dancing among foes while allowing their scimitars to give their opponents final redemption.

The church of the Dawnf lower is extremely flexible and allows its priests much mobility between temples. This helps diffuse pressure from personal feuds, as one priest can relocate to another temple until tempers cool. Individual temples are organized much like a family, with parental and sibling-like interactions between various groups.
Rank 10 - Nivå 6
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 10
Most non-adventuring priests live on donations from their congregation, as do those who work in church temples. Wealthier folk or nobles might hire a priest as a personal healer to deal with a particular problem or as a long-term retainer; likewise, some receive a stipend from the city guard or army to take care of peacekeepers and soldiers. By tradition, they normally do not refuse someone in need of healing even if the person cannot pay, but they are quick to assess who urgently needs medical attention and who will recover naturally, which prevents most attempts at exploitation.

The Birth of Light and Truth
The rest of the book is more practical than historical, explaining the beliefs of the church, offering advice on dealing with sin and temptation, and many parables of evil creatures seeing the light of the Dawnflower and turning to good, productive lives thereafter. The book also contains simple folk remedies for common illnesses and injuries, as well as helpful hints for dealing with common supernatural or monstrous evils, such as that vampires are vulnerable to garlic. Most copies contain extra pages for the owner to record uplifting stories he experiences or hears in order to repeat them to others, and any copy containing a firsthand anecdote from a great priest or paladin is especially prized as a family or church heirloom. It is customary for a hero of the church who performs some great deed for a person or temple to write a brief account in or at least sign a local’s copy of Light and Truth (as it is commonly known) as a memento and historical record.
