Information on the Temple of Cupid
The character of Cupid is played on the television shows
Xena:Warrior Princess and Hercules:The Legendary Journeys
by the kiwi actor Karl Urban. It is his interpretation of
Cupid that the Priestesses and Priests choose to serve. If you'd like more information on Cupid or Karl himself, please see our
links page or the Cupid:God of Love page.
Cupid's Temple is open to all who wish to serve Him..male
or female. However, the Priestesses have come up with some
"rules" for the Temple to make the experience of serving
Cupid a more pleasant one for all concerned. Below you will
find the "rules" and general information.
1)All females may be assigned the Titles of Priestess and/or Keeper (possibly others) if they so desire. You do not have to have a
title to post in the Temple, but it's more fun. :) Please
titles page for examples. To request a title, simply
come to the Temple of Cupid and post an article called
"title request" asking for the title of your choice, or to
ask for help in choosing a title. Please choose no more
than four titles and make sure that no one else already has
the title you want. This is just to make things fair for
any new person who may come along.
2)Any males who come to the Temple will be given the Title of Priest/Keeper or others if they wish. The same rules above apply to the male posters. No more than four titles, and make sure
no one else has it already.
3)Regarding all Titles: Anyone who comes to the Temple and
requests a title, then disappears without a trace will lose
their assigned titles after a period of three months. The
exceptions to this rule will be Priests/Priestesses who are
"regulars"..that is..they have posted numerous times and
they pretty much know the other Priestesses. If one of the
"regular" Priests/Priestesses disappears, their titles will
be up for grabs after a period of six months.
4)If someone is about to have their titles thrown back into
the pot for new Priests/Priestesses to choose from, either
Kim or I (the High Priestesses) will post a "WARNING" topic
to let everyone know. That way, if said Priestess/Priest is
still around and just lurking, they can respond and keep
5)The Temple is all about story-telling, fantasy, and
role-playing. Any posts relating to Cupid and/or Karl Urban are welcome. Many of us write stories or poems involving Cupid and the other Priestesses/Priests. Each of us invents a "character" to serve
Cupid, and if we wish..have our "portrait" and "background
info" posted in the gallery. To find a portrait, try doing a search under
"fantasy art". If you need any
suggestions on where to start, or if you have any other
questions at all, please feel free to email us at the
address on the bottom of the screen.
6)Your Priest/Priestess background info should basically consist of the
Temple Duties and Titles
Brief Summary of Your Past
Area You Are From
7)All of the above information should be emailed to me at
the address below, and I will put it on the webpage.
8)Meetings will be held about every month or so in the then-present Temple of Cupid. Any ideas, concerns, announcements, etc..may be brought up there if you wish. Sometimes you may be asked to vote on a certain issue. The "meetings" are just replies to a posted article titled "Meeting"..they're not in a chat format, and they're pretty informal. Any other questions you may have about them, feel free to send an email.
9)Only one more thing..please be nice to your fellow
Priests/Priestesses. We're all here to get away from RL and
want to keep this a fun, peaceful place to be.
Cupid doing the thing he does best
