Fortune Card: The Defender, Reversed - Peril
Her rites are practiced in the dead of night; she has been called both Mother and Death Personified. A stone figurine carries her divine power from realm to realm. Also known as the Sow-Headed Goddess, she bears numerous weapons in her many arms, including swords, a staff, pole arms, and a chakram - a circle of steel with a sharp outer edge. She has red flowers in her hair, and holds a skull-cap drinking cup. After battles, she dances, drunk with her victim's blood. With her mother and sisters, she destroyed a demon army, and now a Spherewalker has carried Her here, to your realm.
- What Spherewalker channels Her power and what does s/he seek?
- Who was the last demon she subdued - and why and where?
- The snout of the figurine is broken, and her tusks and weapons are missing. Who did this, and why?
