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.

Castoria, Land of Shattered Stars

       By: Veretrix

Castoria was once a thriving and prosperous nation, a rich trade center for the surrounding lands. This all changed when, on one fateful night nearly a century ago, the Mist of Eternity rolled in and surrounded the land, obscuring more of the outside world as days and nights passed.

By the time the Mist blocked out the sun, a new light shone during what was assumed to be daytime: The Starpoint Spire, a mysterious place atop Castoria's highest peak in the northern-central region. Some say that there is some sort of building atop the mountain shining the dim "sunlight" onto the land, but it is only ever too bright or too dark to fully make out any structure, not to mention the mountain's immense height.

Not a month after the Spire's light lit up, the stars fell. Flaming rocks and debris from far-flung edges of space plummeted downward onto the eastern region of Castoria. Once the shower subsided, a strange energy from within the fallen stars transformed the eastern lands in what are now known as The Voidwastes, a barren gray land littered with craters and strange alien creatures (these can vary, but I had Pathfinder's Akatas in mind).

To the south, strange mechanism of eldritch origin are again at work after aeons of rest in the Ruins of Kchuthngnl, an ancient city of non-human creation that is estimated by scholars to be no less that five millennia old.

To the west, the once peaceful and serene forest, now known as The Plagued Woods, has been experiencing corruptions of the wildlife and humanoids living there. Some humans have reported creatures that appear not unlike a halfling, except that they can open their mouths to massive proportions to swallow creatures the size of an ogre.

When adventurers and citizens alike try to make an escape from Castoria, they are never seen again, and it is utterly unknown whether they found hopeful sanctuary or agonizing death withing the Mist's depths.

What is unknown to all residents of Castoria is that all of these events occurred because of the actions of a secret but powerful cult loyal to the Elder Gods who call the space between the planes their abhorrent home. The cult still lives on, larger than ever, and their plan is for the alien horrors to incubate and thrive within the dome of mist that now envelops Castoria, so that when the Elder Gods return as the cult's prophecy foretells, they will have an army of blasphemous creation at their disposal that they will use to make war with and enslave the denizens of the Material Plane.
