Harawep

From elanthipedia
Jump to: navigation, search


The disrupter of peace treaties among races and nations, destroyer of families, augur of disloyalty, and turner of children against parents, clan against clan, Harawep is a vicious warrior who fights with twin swords. Hideously ugly, Harawep appears as a hag who moves quicker than the eye can follow. A lightning-wielding goddess, her capricious will causes unstoppable forest fires that destroy whole settlements. Harawep's ways are not all so abrupt and obvious -- she weaves deception as well as she brandishes destruction, and her plots and schemes are as intricate as the webs her favorite creature (the spider) spins. One of Harawep's titles is "the Widowmaker," and murderers and assassins consider her their patron.

Artwork and Depictions

As with all the Immortals, various works of art to the goddess can be found throughout the realms.

Temple of the North Wind Frieze

Found NW from the entrance:

A deeply carved web spans the stone wall, its tangled threads framing numerous scenes of betrayal. In one, a man in healer's robes pours poison into a patient's wineglass. Another shows a trader furtively emptying a rival's contract case. A third depicts a herald carrying a truce flag shot down by an archer. More images of scheming and disloyalty fill the web as a large spider adds another thread. Etched beneath the scene are the words, "Terror and Pain: Plots and Paranoia."

Tamsine's Rest Statues

Found in niches of each dead end in the hedge-maze:

  • statue #1: The statue depicts a woman weeping over the fallen figure of a knight.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
Harawep, avert your gaze, and toy with us no more. For war, betrayal and dismay doth follow thee four-score.
  • statue #2: The statue depicts a woman crying over a slain child, while a warrior looms over her with an upraised sword.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
May Harawep turn her gaze aside, and spare us all her wrath, lest fortunes fall and woe betide whoe're is in her path.
  • statue #3: The statue depicts a man wearing a crown being led to the block amidst a jeering crowd.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
May faith be kept lest treachery run rampant through the lands, and Harawep's webs be spun about, then only death will stand.
  • statue #4: The statue depicts a child, crying, beside the slain bodies of a man and a woman.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
All honor be to Harawep, all praise be given, too. That she may look the other way and spare us woe and rue.
  • statue #5: The statue depicts a dark-clad man stabbing another from behind.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
Harawep, queen of those who walk the night, keep us beneath your wing, that we may rule with terror bright and slay with shadow's pain.
  • statue #6: The statue depicts a black widow spider seated in the midst of an intricate metal web.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
Plotting, planning, spinning webs to snare us all by night. Struggling in Harawep's web, no future can be bright.
  • statue #7: The statue depicts a young man slaying a crowned woman who closely resembles him.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
Mother, Harawep will be, for I'll have no more of mine. Betrayal, pride and vanity give me my place in time.
  • statue #8: The statue depicts a man weeping over the body of a woman, impaled upon a sword. Nearby, a younger man turns away defiantly.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
Having none of loyalty, scorning filial love as weak, I'll honor none save Harawep to find the power I seek.
  • statue #9: The statue depicts two knights engaged in valiant battle, unaware of the bowman who kneels half-hidden by the brush.
A rust-stained ironwood statue reads:
Honor lies trampled in the mud and treachery reigns supreme, when Harawep spins her plots at night and betrayal is the mean.
  • statue #10 (Center room; this is a holy icon but not aligned to badges):
The statue depicts the negative aspect of the goddess, Harawep. Shown as a grotesque crone against a backdrop of lacy silver lightning bolts, she holds two razor sharp blades at the ready.
