Gosh the Weaver

Gosh the Weaver

Gosh the Weaver is one of the primordial deities of the world; one of the few gods who seems to have arisen independently from the primal chaos. His title of "Weaver" comes not from his patronage of cloth crafting (he is not primary in that area though he is a patron of such arts) but from his primal manipulations of the world which brought forth the braided forces of time, fate, and destiny.

There are no verifiable records that The Weaver has ever manifested in the world. However, the actions he has taken without actually manifesting are more than enough to establish his power.

Widespread, conservative, and politically powerful, The Weaver's priesthood views any attempt to change the existing order of things as working against destiny. They rail against prophecy and all attempts to look into the future for the same reason, and are currently devoting much effort to discrediting the Script of Gaz The Dark. Nevertheless, though not entirely devoid of priestly magic, this priesthood is one of the weakest when it comes to such abilities. This leads some to wonder what the deity actually thinks of the organization supposedly devoted to him.

The priesthood is not the whole story, however, as The Weaver is also the patron of "Those Who Stand Outside." While in the theology of the priesthood this refers to those rare individuals destined to make changes in the world, it has been interpreted by certain organized but ill-respected groups to refer to themselves. The Weaver has thus become the patron of alchemists, smugglers, and morticians.

    -- Sir Galyan Foamhand

The Weaver's patronage of morticians could well be due to his strong ties to the white art of Necromancy.
