The Weaver

By:

The Weaver spun time, space, fire earth, air, water, light, and spirit into existance from the primal chaos, the way a spinner spins threads out of cotton or wool. Weaving them together, The Weaver made all.

The Weaver is also known as the Celestrial Weaver. This primal diety took chaos and spun time, space, fire, earth, air, water, light, and spirit into existance. He then wove these things into the world, choosing things for their artistic quality.

Sure there are other spirits, he made them. Some of them claim to be Gods, but they are just powerful spirits.

Priests of the Weaver are embedded into society. There is one priest in every endevor, company, or village. They are advisors who help “those who do” follow the correct pattern, as set down by the Weaver. There are five ranks of priests who report to and are advised by the rank above them. Every rank is assigned a more important group, with only the top most weaver priests doing nothing but advising lesser priests and kings.  This way the vision of the Weaver can be maintained, society and event continues on as if they are supposed to.

Not following the Weaver’s pattern leads to chaos (or unluck). If you are not in your right place at the right time you will be cut from the cloth of the world. It fear of being removed that keeps people following the general advice of the Weaver Priesthood.

The reward for following your “pattern” is that your pattern will be re-used time and time again… a reincarnation of sorts.

The Weaver’s priesthood is astrologically inclined.  The stars are the language that The Weaver communicates his ideas for the pattern.

To me, it seems too much like the cosmology of the Werewolf game where the supernal Weaver entity went nuts and tried to weave all of chaos into stasis. As an organization it seems very bare-bones and lacking in character. Why does the Weaver work so hard against chaos? Does he/it expect the same drone like obedience from his followers and priests?

Did you assume that just because of the name?

Actually nothing related to that. It is actually based on Chinese views of the interaction of cosmic forces. This does not have a trilogy of cosmic deities with an out of whack relationship.

If you have woven anything, anything out of place creates repercussions. If you are not "in the groove" of the pattern, you are out of place. Anything "out of place" usually gets snipped, removed, and rewarped.

If you were a person, would you move too far out of the weave, since getting snipped and removed usually means dead.

Except for the same name, I didn't get the werewolf vibe at all. But perhaps that is because I am a Werewolf the Apocolypse player.

This seems more like the weaver of cloth/ textiles. Once you get that metaphor, it makes more sense.

The air had grown chill the minute they descended into the strange valley, which was unmarked on any of their maps. It was so strange here, devoid of animal life and completely silent. The horses were nervous the entire journey through the vale. As they set about to collect firewood for the campfire they could hear their own voices as dim echoes through the eerie silence.

The food didn't taste anything that evening and their sleep was cold and troubled by nightmares. While they are clearing camp the next morning, one of them stumbles over a piece of stone jutting out of the ground nearby the horses. On closer inspection there seems to be runes engraved into the polished surface. The symbols true meaning is no more known among mere mortals and if they decide to dig deeper, they will discover that it is an ancient altar buried within the soil.

Any historically oriented party member will recognize the largest symbol to be the insignia of the powerful warlock who ruled this realm several centuries ago. At their departure from the area, something will seem amiss with one of the party members and all will remember the stories of the warlock's thousand curses.
