Domain: Trickery, Knowledge
Symbols: Steel dagger; a sack of grain with coin spilling from it; crossed out word, particularly one relating to law; twisted fingers; the crescent moon
The god of deceit, innovation, and trade, Vuloas is the younger of the twins and is mostly worshipped by housewives, merchants, and all others whose trade is gossip and information. Where Lethae’s symbol is that of the sword, Vuloas’ is the dagger, and it is commonly believed that should one hold a bared dagger when making an oath sub gladio, Vuloas will cause his sister to turn a blind eye to any indiscretions performed within her domain. To facilitate such trickery, it is common for rogues and scoundrels to tattoo a dagger on their inner swordarm, that all their activities may be hidden from the Lady of the Walls.
Domain: Forge, Protection
Symbols: Steel sword; a quill and scroll; weighing scales; an open palm; the half moon
The goddess of order, justice, and the sanctity of the written word, Lethae is mostly worshipped by guardsmen, civic authorities, smiths, and all else who rely upon the city walls to keep them safe. It is common for contracts and oaths to be taken sub gladio, beneath a naked sword, as a sign of sincerity (in addition to the implicit threat that their life will be forfeit should their word be broken). All cities feature a prominent temple dedicated to the Lady of the Walls, and most towns will feature if not a full temple, then at least a shrine.
Domain: Nature, Life
Symbols: Wooden spear; wooden effigy strung with hide; circle formed of five stones; right hand covering the left; the full moon
The goddess of chaos, growth, and untamed beauty, Cimayi is worshipped by those who shun the false sanctuary carved out by the followers of Lethae. For as long as they have existed, the two goddesses have fought over the land, with neither ever gaining more than a tenuous and temporary triumph before the other regains what was once lost. Despite this endless battle, there is little animosity between the two goddesses; the competition is seen as a mostly friendly game, something to while away eternity.
Domain: Tempest, War
Symbols: Bronze mace or warhammer; a single femur; animal sacrifice (usually goat) tied to a stake; clenched fist; the gibbous moon
The god of travel, bloodshed, and martial discipline, Cracix is worshipped by soldiers, bandits and travellers alike. The Stormlord is a fickle master whose favour is as fickle as his temper is short, but all who seek safe passage through the seas have no choice but to try and stay his wrath with generous sacrifices of blood and gold. Those who seek his blessings on the battlefield will often adorn themselves with the hide and blood from a recent sacrifice, making goats the first and most common casualty of war.
Domain: Light, Grave
Symbols: Iron arrow (broken); a hooded lantern; a skull with worm crawling from a socket; hand performing a chopping motion; the new moon
The god of the sun, moon and death, Krubivax is worshipped by few but feared by all. He is the Keeper of the Final Gate, he who stands before the wall that divides the living world from the drylands that none ever return from. There is nothing Krubivax hates more than the undead, and his priests will spare no expense when it comes to hunting down and destroying such abominations.
