Wee Jas (wee jass), deity of death and magic, is
most often portrayed as a stunning woman dressed in a beautiful gown, wearing
some piece of jewelry with a skull motif. Wee Jas is a demanding
deity who expects obedience from her followers.
Wee Jas's priesthood has a strict hierarchy. Her clerics are known for their discipline and obedience to their superiors.
Clerics of Wee Jas arbitrate disputes, give advice on magic, investigate
magical curiosities, create magic items, and administer funerals.
Clerics of lower level are expected to defer to ones of higher level at
all times. They wear black or gray robes.
Her clerics pray for spells at dusk or moonrise. Holy
days include Spirit Night, held during the Harvest Festival, where priests pass
the night sitting vigil in crypts and graveyards ready to put the restless dead
back into slumber. Temples also celebrate the anniversary date of former
priests deaths for their ascension to their goddess's side.
History/Relationships: Wee Jas was once much more
powerful and influential in Traykon. After T'lor created the Veil, her
power weakened with the absence of most of her followers. T'loric priests
and Magehunters began an extermination campaign against her priests and those of
the other deities of magic. For centuries following the loss of Arcane
magic in Traykon, Wee Jas was steadily declining in power. Her role as
Ulan's consort left her some worshipers. She was considered a funerary
deity until very recently. Now, with the return of magic, her power is
beginning to grow again.
Wee Jas is sometimes often
associated with Ulan and many priests of both deities view them as
consorts. We Jas opposes T'lor and her priests
do what they can to hamper his devout.
Temples to We Jas are few and far between. Most of her temples are located in or near graveyards
or catacombs, and they always contain crypts where powerful wizards are
buried. They also contain extensive libraries of arcane lore and
large collections of items that once belonged to great wizards from past
Dogma: Wee Jas promotes using spells and magic items (though
many of her followers insist she favors the creation of such things.)
Wee Jas tells her followers that magic is the key
to all things. Wee Jas promises that understanding, personal power,
security, order, and control over fate come with the study of magic.
She admonishes her followers to respect those who came before, because
they left their knowledge and died to make room for them. She reminds
them that death is inevitable, but she promises that their learning and
memory will be honored by those who come after them.
