Appearance: Her skin is the black of the night sky and filled with many twinkling stars and swirling nebulae the color of twilight while her hair, eyes, and wings are the pale silver of moonlight and seem to constantly trail and drip stardust. She also possesses four arms.

I created her partially because I hated the idea of a world without prophecy. Though not always essential, it is a staple and signature of high fantasy.

Here are the bits of lore that I came up with concerning her spheres of influence and how she gained them: It is said that when, the being who would one day become, Ashrani sprang from the maelstrom Pharasma gave the barest of smiles anticipating the great fate that awaited her and the alleviation of a long carried burden.

Fate & Prophecy

When Desna placed the stars in the heavens and began their song she did so to guard against the darkness lurking in the depths of the cosmos but, in her wanderings, Ashrani embraced both that darkness and the dance of the spheres that held it at bay, and in them found the hidden truths of the multiverse.

Twilight & Mystery

-Instead of Pharasma losing grip of prophecy she instead slowly relinquished her hold over it to this goddess which explains why the prophecies made while it was under her control have lost their potency.

Tell me what you guys think.

Will there be a Half-Fey template in any of the upcoming books or playable fey based race in any of the upcoming books?
