Svjart is one of the Oyarsa. Clerics players can choose him to gain access to the trickery domain.
Svjart, Father of Merry Rogues
Relationship with followers
Svjart is perhaps the most erratic and inscrutable member of the oyarsa. In the past, his followers have been individuals who befriended him before they knew his true identity. He asks very little from his followers. More than all else, he abhors slavery and he expects his followers – known to many as “the unholy men of Svjart” – to abhor slavery as well. A sense of humor and an ability to laugh at oneself is also a requirement. Many “unholy men” have had their power taken away as a penalty for “taking things too seriously.”
Teachings & Philosophy
Most oyarsa avoid formal teaching, preferring instead to lead by example. Svjart differs in that he does not seem interested in leading at all. Followers of Svjart come from many backgrounds and beliefs.
Svjart is associated with change, planning, and artifice. His true form is unknown, for he is able to take any form he chooses. It is often speculated that he has no true form. It may be that Svjart’s nature is essentially mercurial; one form is no “truer” than another, and his truest shape is the one he wears in the moment. Most often he appears as a winking rogue, clenching a carved floatstone pipe between his teeth, smoking like the 5 hells. Like Eldrethine, Svjart spends his time in Felmoor, having laughs at the expense of mortals. Jokes, pranks and swindles are his domain, although he has an enthusiastic collaborator in Mooros.
