Thank you Di. Yes this one was sub-serving back in the highlight of my submitting days when I would put three or four up a day every day. It may make a comeback. Go to Comment

This definitely went in a different direction than thought many times but it has become interesting to me enough to actually piece it together and attempt to use it as a backdrop for a game to run.

The Crusader
The Crusader is highest at the beginning of the year. He is seen as a lone man, standing proud looking to the heavens. The Huntress can always be seen following him in the night sky, tracking his movements. During the later months of the year when the Dragon rises high the Crusader looks to the fallen beast with sadness. The myth is that the Crusader causes the fall rains begin because of his sorrow. It is said to be an omen of good character to be born under the sign of the Crusader being thoughtless and selfless to the point of ruin at times. Go to Comment

The Sage
Seen as a bent crooked man, the Sage sits in sorrow at his never ending life. His knowledge is surpassed by only the gods but he weeps at his existence. Winter is ending when he is highest as he brings the warmth of spring away from the winter colds. Once every two decades a right star, actually a comet, lights up the Sages right eye. In that time the stories say that he can be found and asked a single question. However cryptic his answer may be, he still gives the answer true. To be born under this sign it to possess a unique knowledge and gift of the mind rarely forgetting what you have learned or heard. Go to Comment

The Oracle
The Oracle is a myth as much as the gods are. It is not known which came first the Oracle or the Gods. To ask that question one is answered with a series of confused tales of difference between animals related to the birth of suns. It is seen as a circle of eight red and yellow stars around a void of blackness. The Oracle is both truthful and devious in its own right. It knows no right and wrong, only that that when it speaks, mortals should listen. The Oracle never has a high point as it sits relatively in the same spot throughout the year; some say this is a testament to its unwavering nature. Many a sailor and captain will use the Oracle to guide their ships by, knowing that it will never lead them astray. Those born under this sign are usually aloof and seem a bit off. However they can spout wisdom when the time calls for it. Go to Comment

The King
The King is highest during the summer months, ruling his kingdom over the pleasant times of the year. He is seen only as a crown in the sky, the top most star a jewel beyond brightness. His guidance for those on land have been wonderful, as his guiding light shines brightest over the desert lands bringing those who know to follow him safely home. Those born under this sign are usually gifted with a commanding demeanor and make good leaders. Go to Comment

The Captain
Seen as a ship with furled sails, the Captain raises and lowers in the night sky as a ship on turbulent waters. When he is the highest the summer squalls hit the coastal waters and pour forth their nurturing drink to quench the thirst of the land. Any farmer knows to plant soon after the Captain rises as planting most crops before result in swamped land, losing most if not all of the harvest. Planting afterwards has been a boon to most coastal farmers however. Every sailor knows though not to follow the Captain to ofar as faithfully following him will lead to your doom broken on the rocks of some unknown shore. Anyone born the sign of the Captain is resourceful, yet often fail in their tasks, like crashing on the rocks of life. Go to Comment

The Huntress
Like the tale tells, the Huntress is a powerful warrior. She is seen standing on a corpse of a lion, spear held high. She constantly stalks the Crusader for taking the kill of the Dragon and she will never forgive him for that. She stalks him to the end of time waiting for him to falter. Anyone born under the sign of the Huntress is known for their physical prowess but also for their twin-sided nature. Siding with what makes it best for them. Go to Comment

The Chariot
The Chariot is what the Huntress rides when tracking her prey, except the Crusader that she tracks on foot. It is a guiding light and seen as a good omen to start any travel with as it is highest just before winter during the end of summer and the beginning of fall. It’s faithful in its service to those who travel during its race across the sky. Anyone born under this sign are seen to be blessed with luck, caravan drivers will usually try to find guards born under the sign of the Chariot to protect their goods. Go to Comment

The Dragon
The beast of the sky, the Dragon is the largest constellation seen. It snakes behind the Huntress and seems to be facing away from the Crusader, knowing that to look him in the eye means death. It is seen as a wingless dragon, having its wings removed in the fight with the Crusader. It stalks the night sky just before winter looking to find a place to hide from his enemy the Crusader but stalking the Huntress at the same time. Those born under the sign of the Dragon are seen as powerful but blind, not knowing who their enemies are. Go to Comment

The Judge
Seen on high, the Judge is always the highest during the last months of the year as if judging all the past transgressions that have happened during the year. It is said that to do a deed of ill under the gaze of the Judge is to condemn your soul to an unspeakable life after death as a servant to his cause. He is viewed many ways, but his most common image is that of a sightless man holding a large gavel placed on top of a staff. It is said he uses this gavel to claim the condemned to their fate, or to clear a soul of guilt or blame. Go to Comment

The Tree of Life
The branches of the Tree of Life spread throughout the stars as the loving hands of a mothers embrace. It is the only tree in the winter that does not loose its foliage and is commonly looked at to see when winter will leave and spring will return. Large in its size, the tree of Life sits the highest among the other constellations, never moving only rotating around the others watching each to see it is in their place. Those born under the sign of the Tree of Life are blessed with a long life and a healthy virtue. Go to Comment

The Ugly Sister
Cast down from her family for being different the Ugly Sister haunts the winter months with her crooked stare. Her mistreatment at the hands of her family caused her to be vengeful and filled with hate. Her cold heart helps fuel the winter snows year after year. Those born under her sign are usually uncaring of others feelings and emotionless. Go to Comment

The Falcon
Majestic and graceful, the Falcon is one of the many who fights with the Ugly Sister to bring the world out of her cold wintered clutches. It is swift and flowing, bringing in the smells and sights of spring on fluttered wings. Those born under the sign of the Falcon tend to be outgoing and free willed letting little get their spirits down. Go to Comment

The Unicorn
The mythical creation of the Unicorn dates back to the early days of the gods when Xukthalis watched over the world below with his insatiable intrest. When he turned into the moon due to his unmoving vigil, he shed tears. They fell to the earth and became the beauty of the unicorn. Now, in respect the unicorn constellation preceeds the moon in its never ending arch across the sky, pulling it around the world so that Xukthalis, the moon, can view the world in all its magnificence.

Unicorns can usually only be seen during the full moon. This could be due to the myth of them being a creation of the tears of Xukthalis. More information can be found here 1417 about Xukthalis. Go to Comment

The Rogue
Silent and quick, the Rogue stalks the night sky with a purpose that few understand. Seen in the night sky as an oval mask of darkness, the Rogue is seen during the colder months of the year sitting low in the sky, hiding from his prey. It is often thought that the Rogue tries to steal the warmth and glory of spring every year. When the winter chills refuse to fade and winter holds on tighter, spring fails to fall. It is thought he keeps the stolen spring in his pocket to warm his cold heart.

The theory of Groundhogs day is common with this myth. Go to Comment

The Murderer
Always seen in the sky right before and after a blood moon, the Murderer is said to be responsible for the killing of the gods. On the days when the gods fell and were lost to the ages, the Murderer bathed in the fountain of blood which turned the moon red. Once a year for a week the moon bleeds red and the Murderer rises in the eastern sky to relive his moment of triumph over the divine. Go to Comment
