All week long, we have been looking at the deities of Shadowsfall. So far we have presented our design goals and philosophies as well as an overview of the the archkyton Akaron the Paingiver, Bendes and Ular, the Twin Gods, and Zyree, the caregiver. We round this week out by giving you an sneak peak at Calista, the Journeywoman.
Unlike the other deities described thus far, Calista is seldom worshiped in the strongholds and few of her followers can ever be found within any of the major cities. Instead her freespirited-followers roam through the Outlands, to disover and enjoy all the new places the goddess brings into the Plane of Shadows. The Journeywoman is credited with changing Shadowsfall according to her whims and her followers take great pleasure in being the first to experience it. Whether it is learning every rock on a mountain, exploring a long-forgotten dungeon, battle some kind of new undead or finding magic items that have been altered by their absorption onto Shadowsfall, Calista’s followers are at the forefront of every new experience.
Followers of Calista on the Southern Peninsula frequently serve as guides to those seeking a pass through the Razor Mountains or other dangerous regions of the Outlands. The goddess’ followers, however, are most known for leading refugees to new ruins. Anytime an undead horde overwhelms a town, there are always now homeless survivors that need a place to live. These consummate explorers help these people find a new suitable home, be a cave, shallow holes in the ground or the ruins of absorbed towns.
Calista has a wide range of followers from drow to gnomes, rangers to wilders, even a few time thieves. Thius goddess of the wind has a powerful streak of freedom that many find enticing.
One of the few things that Calista and Akaron have in common is that their oracles are known to probe the mysteries of joy. This new mystery focuses on emotion spells, providing morale bonuses and disheartening ones adversaries.
We hope you enjoyed this look at the deities all week. Next week I will be at GenCon for much of the week so we will not be doing any previews during that time. Look for more previews the week after. If you see me at GenCon, make sure to say hi.

Plans are set, reservations made. Jon Brazer Enterprises is going to GenCon and Origins. The only problem is, I don’t know if I will be going. My book will be there for sure. I just finished ordering a slot at the Game Publishers Association booth to have a book or two there. So far, so good. I know what the Origins release will be: [PFRPG] Book of Beasts: Monsters of the River Nations. I’m still working out the exact specifics for GenCon will be. Either way, look for us at those shows.
Sorry, I wanted this up yesterday, but I didn’t have the time last night. Also it would appear there is something wrong with my twitpics account so none are getting through. So I’ll have to post them to the web at a later point in time. But here are my picture-less tweets:

Last night, I was on the TrapCast podcast. I had a great time and I would like to thank Brant, George, and Jenn for having me on. We talked Traveller and GenCon. Give it a listen and enjoy yourself. It should be coming out this Monday. Until then, listen to their previous episodes.
This is very last minute, but it looks like my girlfriend and I will be at GenCon next week. I’ll be twittering (and possibly blogging) all about it while there. Maybe I’ll get an interview or two. No matter what, I’ll be talking about what’s there for a while. I’m so excited. Its my first gaming convention.
