Some people on Twitter were drawing their “Living Godsonas” and it inspired me to do one.
I knew that, if I personally stole divinity from the Heart of Lorkhan, I would absolutely go full-on Divine Trickster, and I felt pretty strongly that I would take on the Cursed Appearance.
I hope you’re ready foooorrr…
- Bad Puns!
- A perfect fade that just stays That Way and that doesn’t have to get re-cut every frigging month!
- More tricks that maybe were funny the first few times but now they’re just kind of getting annoying!
The trickster god represents to society that there is no authority or set or rules which is infallible. Not even what we think of as the “rules of nature,” even those are inaccurate and can/should be broken (this is why Divine Tricksters are often bisexual and/or gender fluid, etc – the very existence of the Divine Trickster forces you to challenge your assumptions about the world). They would drive people to question authoritarianism and absolutes. The Trickster also often fulfills the role of The Adversary, keeping the Divine Authority in check and disallowing them from taking their power for granted. This is why the role of the Divine Trickster is very important and revered in a pantheon.
I was also confronted with the fact that my Nerevarine is essentially another Living Godsona of myself and wondered how I would differentiate this one from her, but uuuuh… I didn’t. Oh well!
