Hello Theo! I need your general wisdom! ;)  Could you please help me along with Silfer to check Pikel's Druidic magic here as soon as he has rearranged it and expanded according to the new template? Thanks!

Tarquet, I don't know how to say it, but Quepur living in the middle of your hell doesn't feel right for me. She is beautiful,  silent, cool, or better cold and I just can't imagine her in the middle of your(hot) inferno.
And she is not only the goddess who has to do with the unhappy souls who have to spent their live in your inferno, she deals with all who die, cuts the souls from everybody, the good ones as well.She is judicial and not interested in the fate of the souls. The goddess of destiny decides what will happen with them.
Death has nothing to do with punishment in the first place and connecting her with it seems not right to me.

I thought about if perhaps Etherus would be a better choice, but he is the favorite of Ava and the god of love, so you will get here problems as well.

Did you have a closer look already if there is a  Netherworld concept already, I didn't have the time to do it.

Please don't be cross with me now, you have put in this already such a lot of work, but I wouldn't miss a hell like you described it here in Santharia, it is no fun reading it for me.

Sorry to intervene again with you, but your concept doesn't fit to what I read in the entry about Quepur. There it is she who cuts the string of life/soul. And as Koldar said, the Netherworld (mentioned in the entry Netherbeasts) is something like hell. On the other side, if I have understood the concept right,then there is nothing like a hell for the souls (which I would prefer), but they get merely eliminated, or, are send back to the world. (entry Quepur) ????

I think this discussion is not about the weavers, but about the netherworld - which is one of the next projects for a rethink. Pleas look at my "demon-revision-proposal", maybe this is a better place to discuss this. Then the weavers may even go up - as soon as Artemis has decided something about it.
Ah, yes, the southern santharian tribes - well, I don't think, that they have much knowledge of the weavers left..

I think you described it good, Rayne, your example with the water and the fabric. We have to clear now however, where this "other" realm is, where the demons etc "are"-. maybe we should look at this point to the netherworld entry as well, which is a bit contrary. I am occupied with the demons currently, looking if I can alter them a bit, so that they are a bit more consistent, and there I came over your problem as well. Will post soon, have some questions as well, but now I have to look, that I get art on skype!

Finally my head is clear enough to read this entry!
Generally - you did again a real good job, Rayne, I enjoyed reading it and I‘m curious how it will come out finally.

Some comments on the post itself and the comments themselves:

Quote:

Ava had sent them and decided this world could never again be their own, and they together wove in tandem a city and a place outside the world, behind the sky, beyond the farthest dying star, where they could live forever watching the mortals and forever guarding the course of fate and time. This place came to be called the Web.


I like that part and the following very much, it is poetic, but have to nitpick nevertheless, for you think in earthen terms here. „the farthest dying star“ comes from your earthen imagination of stars, which have different distances from earth - only then you can imagine a star far away. The Caelerethean stars are different, they are all in a range not to far away from each other, though you can imagine a „thickness“ of the shell they are moving in. But generally, there are none outside the „shell“ of the  void. Maybe you could alter it to: „outside the world, behind the sky, deep in the unknown .*add other adjective*void“?

I like the thought, that they guide fate, not necessarily balance, though a tiny bit of balance from time to time could explain, that some evil was prevented, some not? What if they mend one hole before another? Myth and Lore of course only.

But imagine you were a Weaver - you know the fabric of Dream is very thin, and you know there are beings on the other side who longed for centuries to break through it and who would wreak havoc as soon as they cross the line. And you put all your efforts to maintain this line - only to watch how another ignorant bearded fool ruins all your work playing with his magic. Would this leave you cold?
...That's how I see it: the Weavers, despite their immortality, are also only humans, whose patience isn't endless.


I see them different, you see them to human like  I think- though they may have been once humans, elves.. they are no longer, don‘t have the desires humans have, aren‘t able to feel rage.. at least, that is my impression..

Quote:
As for summoning in Caelereth, because no creature is passing through an dimensional barriers, the fabric is unaffected. If there are any barriers separating beasts and summoners in Caelereth, those barriers are not so critical. If the barrier between Caelereth and the Netherworld became too weak, the Netherbeasts would be able to freely pass through, and that might make things a little hectic. The fabric grows thin by beasts being summoned through it, though more so from dangerous beasts trying to break through.


Isn‘t this a bit contradictory? The summoned beast/demons do make a little hole or make the „fabric „ thin, do they? Then what means, the fabric is unaffected?

OK, to the Aeruillin Myth:

I have to talk to Artemis first, but generally I would change this a bit in following directions. The Hjoria are generally fine, but I woudn‘t make such a monster out of them, but describe them in a way, that they could been mixed up with the new flying race. I doubt, that they have their knowledge from the Cholians, for the migration pattern is different. If you don‘t mind, I take your idea of the Hjoria and do different myths for the whole continent together with Artemis, for there are a lot things around which are not on the site yet, but only in our heads.

The Stratanians/Shendar:

We decided at Santhmoot, that the ancestors of the Shendar/Stratanians of shendar origin were living in the Manthria region before the Avennorians arrived. They were forced to flee and to move south. So, they could have had contact with the elves in the Zeiphirian forest before, they were probably saved from their persecutors through the Maeverhim, who allowed them passage through the Sharadon. Their view of the weavers can and is therefore be very different from that of the Avennorians (they surely think good of the weavers, if the Avenorrians think bad of them).

I could even develop a special sight for the Shendar. I plan to do some day the „path of the warriors“ for them, a very simplified and altered version of the ideas of Castanedas Don Juan (if you know him). The way of the warrior has not really to do with weaverlike magic, but could be connected in some way.  I will think about the Stratanian/Varcopasian sight of the weavers as well and adapt it to what Smith comes up with. (or what he needs)
