- This is the Second Deity We've Made
- That Smirk
Legends talk of a deity that is here, but not quite here. Ever transient, they are simply known as The One Who Walks. What kind of god has one of our backers brought to Tikor?
This Backer funded Deity has one of the COOLEST looks. That’s that kind of chin up, “I’m about to put one on you” that you’re excited and yet scared of. Love it, love it, love it! This Deity was actually sponsored by someone else. So I hope you enjoy, Mav! You’re in Swordsfall now.
What did the Backer have to say about The One Who Walks?
A Deity of Tikor – What is there gender (None/Asexual are acceptable answers as well!)
A Deity of Tikor – There Preferred Pronouns
A Deity of Tikor – What are the Domains they’re associated with? (Sun, Healing, Water, Birth, etc)
Liminality, Transience, Travel
A Deity of Tikor – Name TWO memorable things they have done or have been apart of.
Once supposedly moved Enkai the Mountain an inch (but they put up a fuss, so they put him back). Once an influential follower of theirs was poisoned, so they maintained this follower in a state of suspended animation until a cure could be retrieved and administered.
A Deity of Tikor – Where on Tikor do they consider home?
This deity is one without a central temple or home, instead roving along every border, in a constant state of flux. Elusive, they can be found anywhere, and nowhere in particular. They never stop for long, although if one was looking, they could likely be found at a crossroads.
A Deity of Tikor – What are their “powers”? (Please don’t be too OP)
Their powers are rooted in transition, and the state of being in-between, and as such, are able to move themselves and others over/between great distances (with limitations). This is a deity who cannot be contained in one place, able to pass through matter, and when pressed, they are able to completely disappear.
What do you think of The One Who Walks? I think they’re pretty badass! Looking forward to weaving some fun stories involving them.
Amazing Deity. Are they followed heavily in Wanderer culture?
Nope! The Wanderers have their own Pantheon. You’ll be hearing about them soonish :)
With that said, cultures aren’t really a monolith in Swordsfall. So they maybe someone’s patron deity and such. Or maybe have a personal story with them.
Imagine Swordsfall as a place more about individual stories.
Oh I fucking love it.
I love this! They are fascinating!
This is great. I look forward to seeing the rest of the back deities.
This is so good!!
