Beings of Power: Sohmna

Sohmna is one of the Oyarsa. Cleric players can choose her to gain access to the Tempest domain

Sohmna, Sailor Beyond the Horizon.

Relationship with Followers
She is beloved by shipwrights, explorers and widows. While there was a time when Sohmna lived in human communities, few now living have met her in the flesh. Most of those who follow her have encountered her in dreams. She is a comforter to those who mourn for something lost, a guide to sailors, and a muse to would-be explorers who long for distant places and strange sights.

Teachings & Philosophy
Sohmna has no teachings. She is a mostly silent patron, and her disciples have only her complicated, sometimes contradictory example to follow. Some choose to focus on her strength, becoming clerics driven by duty and responsibility towards the world and it’s inhabitants. Some focus on her independence and ingenuity, becoming adventurers, or explorers.

Notes
Sohmna is the most complex personality among the allies of Mooros. Once the most approachable of the Maiar, she is now the most distant, although she has not lost her compassionate spirit. She is thought to play a very active part in the preservation of the universe; a role she requested of Mooros following the death of her mortal husband. Her undertaking keeps her on the periphery of the world, mending and repairing the cracked and broken edges of reality. The great Halls of Sohmna, long neglected and empty, lie somewhere beyond the edges of the explored world; legend says they stands at the place where the endless river empties into the void. She is depicted as a grey-hooded figure standing astride the deck of a white-sailed vessel on stormy seas, white-eyed, raven-haired, and haloed in lightning. In one hand she carries a silver spear and in the other a builder’s hammer.
