Well the first thing that popped into my mind was a small wheel. Usually in tarot cards, fortune is depicted as a wheel, at least I think so! But I thought a small spinning wheel might be nice for a destiny prop. It spins continuously because destiny like fate is relentless and unpredictable? The Goddess could still be blindfolded though because destiny favours no-one?

The spinning wheel... reminds me of something...

Ah,yes, Greek mythology also something like that: 3 sisters, onecreating threads, the second spinning and the third cutting them.These are born, life and death. Wished I could recall their names...

Ofcourse, in the Ancient Greece, spinning wheelsdid not yet exist, so they did the spinning some other way :)

One SHOULD keep up with the forum, as well as with his/HER emails... ;)  hehe.. And yes, I'm familiar with both the tarotcard picture, and the three ladies Xaron mentioned (spinningwas done manually before the wheel was invented ;) , butthe problem is - Artimidor didn't want me to draw any bloodymess (ppl getting crushed under the wheel of FORTUNE, not destinyby the way) or drawing THREE women (thank him for that ;)) so I dunno.. It's tough.
Oh, and I did one new pictureyesterday night - a ranger in the woods, tracking.. eh.. tracksat night. It's supposed to show up really soon at my elfwoodgallery, so in case someone would like to use it for a story/ description... just mention it! The picture is monochrome ifone was wandering, and the guy's eyes might look funny to some...

I'm pretty aware how the Goddess of Destiny is pictured in othermyths, however, I decided this should not be the Santharian way.The blindfold may be borrowed from the Goddess of justice, however,it serves a completely different purpose. I will integrate allthose things into the description of Seyella. Here's a shortnote about them:

The blindfold of Seyella more or lessrepresents Avá's closed eyes. But Seyella is a Goddess of Aér'aí'chán, of the existing world. A Goddess who knows all. Of whatwill happen and what will not happen. And how things will returnto their origin in the end. That's why she covers her eyes. Shesees things in her mind, She is the Thought of Avá, She's Time,She's Eternity turning to Becoming, She is this whole Knowledge,reality of this Knowledge. Yeah, She's the Goddess of Time, too,and closest to Avá if there is such a thing like the rankingof Gods (that's also why I tried to make her more "etherial" - to stress her connection to Avá *haha* that's a goodone: "stressing a connection to Avá" - by hairstyling*grin*). And she covers her eyes cause she feels the absolutehelplessness not being able to interfere in things existing.There is much sorrow, death and destruction on the world of Aér'aí'chán and many people who pray to her. But all she does isKNOWING. In very rare cases she may talk to creatures who seekher help, but main thing she can do is to tell them what willhappen.  She doesn't want to see it. She cannot do it.

The spinning wheel is exactly the thing which Seyella is NOTsupposed to represent. Seyella doesn't decide the destiny ofthe beings. She only knows it. She stands between Avá and theworld and looks upon the world with "knowing eyes".

The blindfold is not something I proposed because Ididn't know anything better, but because it represents exactlywhat I had in mind about Seyella. I also proposed to make Hera little frown (which would also fit into this context), alas,this is not contained in the picture.

I think a lotabout things like this, but I need a detailed concept preparedbefore I can propose a sign or a symbol for a God. And that'sthe reason why we're still lacking God symbols...

PS2: Will those smiley-problems revert once?

Yes! I'll agree with Xaron here! We're here to defend our king, right ;)
NO, really, I mean it..

P.S. I'm afraid it's permanent, Xaron. Annoying, isn't it? ;)

1.) Haha! Draw your swords, scum! En garde! *hehe*

No, what gives you the impression that you're attacking me? Well, my skin is as hard as steel and I have survived much worser things... I can defeat gnomes and brownies with my left hand only! *harhar*

Furthermore I never intended to make career as hairdresser... And if you really had offended me I of course would have thrown you all in the dungeon beneath the Santhalian fortress! - BTW: Where do you guess are all those Santharian members who haven't shown up lately??? - See? *grin*

2.) Smiley problems seem to be solved by now (but they only work with new posts).

3.) You're still an unregistered user, Faugar! This way your posts aren't counted and you have no chance to become Santharian king with the amount of your postings! To register: Click on "Register your free account" at the first forum page, then sign in for a "Global account"!

Indeed, it should be added at the compendium. The three fates (moirai)were Clotho, Lahesis and Atropos.

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
