Miran

By:

The Moon Lady, Sea Queen, Water Mistress

Miran is the primal entity of water. She is a volatile and temperous, but also passionate and giving to those she cares for.
When the world was first created, she created the seas to sustain life and the two moons, Mir and Elir, to govern the cycles of life and took the greater, Mir, as her abode.

In Éran, Miran is perceived mostly as a dark goddess. She created the Blackfolk races, lycanthropes and introduced the undead to Theras, all with the aim of destroying the mortal races. The Moon Lady herself abides by no such distinctions. For her, creation is simply a manifestation of her and the other Elder Gods’ being. It is she who sustains it, she who will be there when it is gone and she who will help recreate it. To her, the mortal races are a perversion of her vision of creation, a blight the young gods imposed on her work in her absence to replace her own vision.

Miran is currently a fragmented goddess, as she was ‘slain’ by the cooperative efforts of Astias, Hefastos, Elonis and Harion. Her being was split into three and imprisoned in cages by Baran the Smith and kept in three different corners of the world. One cage was thrown into the deepest ocean, the other on her moon of Mir, and the third was transported to Edras and hidden in a secret place in the God lands, known only to those who conspired against her and in all three places were placed powerful guardians pledged to protect the cages until the young gods are no more.

Despite this, Miran is not dead and though imprisoned, she can still exert her influence on Theras in subtle ways.

She is worshipped by some Blackfolk tribes who see her as the queen of Theras, and themselves fighting for her legacy to destroy the perversions of the young gods and restore Theras to its true order.

Few prayers are heard, but still just enough to let them know that their creator still lives on.

If she was ever to be healed Doomsday could arise.

Solid goddess write-up. Something like what would be read in a rulebook giving enough to use it.

I voted on the set, not on the pieces. Since I have 23 votes today and nothing new to vote on (HINT), this shall be corrected.

A solid write up without going into tedieous detail. This is enough to give everyone involved what they need to know and enough background direction that you can fill in certain "submyths". This, and the others, should be enshrined as a good example of a deity write up

       By: Ancient Gamer

The journey had been a long one and now they had entered the mountains. After an entire day spent on paths cut into the mountainside and through moss covered coniferous woods, they encounter a desperate young mountain tribal. He is searching for his beloved wife and his elder brother, both of whom he got separated from after an unsuccessful attempt to kill a cave bear. The last thing he saw was the cave bear in full pursuit of his wife. He could not help her as he had been knocked to the ground by the raging beast, and was struggling to regain full consciousness. The tribal will be clearly nervous and urges them to look for his wife during their travels. He will stay in his village a couple of miles to the north and pleads for assistance should they recover his wife, whether she be dead or alive.

On the next day of travel, they will journey upon a dim track in the forest and while they are preparing to ascend another path cut into the mountainside, they hear moans of lust from somewhere nearby. Upon closer inspection they will spy a young tribal woman in the heat of the act with an elder tribal male. They are consummating their forbidden love on the cold mountain moss, and beside them lay the skinned and slaughtered carcass of a huge bear.
