Title: Zhotha and Tyrissi, Summer 808
Post by: Misia on August 01, 2017, 07:30:19 am
There was a lot of discussion over the winter over identities of Zhotha and Tyrissi http://evensonglarp.org/smf/index.php?topic=17.0 (http://evensonglarp.org/smf/index.php?topic=17.0).

During a Weavewalk, Chel and I spoke with Venderos, of the Order of Tyrissi in Dantessa, who told us that Zhotha, the healing goddess, was instrumental in helping the Dreaming Goddess defeat Nightmare. The gods maintain power through controlling various Ancient Words of Power (at least some of which are our ritual words). When a god controls a word, they have the power of that word. They may allow other gods to use that word and its power to some extent.

So Zhotha gave her name, her own Word of Power to the Dreaming Goddess and had to take a new name, Tyrissi. Venderos said there were 2 competing thoughts about the transition. Either Tyrissi (consort of the Heretic Queen and the Most Favored of Zhotha) took Zhotha's place, or Tyrissi was always one of the names of Zhotha, and Tyrissi (the Consort) was named in honor of her.

During a Weavewalk...

Just to clarify ... was this a Weavewalk or a Pathfold?

I ask because I find ... at the end of a Path, you're speaking to a person, someone in the flesh, who is telling you what they believe (or lying, but I see no need to walk that trail here), whereas ... in the Weave, fact and stories become confused, and this might not actually be providing clarity instead of added confusion.

I find the whole thing to be very interesting though, regardless of if it was a Path or the Weave...

I can confirm it was a Weavewalk.  She was trying to learn more about advanced healing, and ... well, someting interfered.  We were pulled away.  And eventually we found our selves in a circle of stones.  And that was when Venderos showed up.  Who had ALSO been pulled to tat place unexpectedly.

It was an interesting experience.

It sounds it.

It's the second instance I've heard of meeting real people in the Weave, as though it's a room in an inn....

It was most definitely a Weavewalk, as I know nothing about Pathfolding.

I would say that I felt more as if the Weavewalk were pushed aside, rather than pulled.

And I separately participated in another sort of meeting in the Weave. This was led by another Weavewalker, and I'm still unsure whether it was entirely real. But it seems to be a somewhat regularly-occurring gathering, as there is at least one preceding meeting, and a future one planned. Up until that point, I had not ever considered the possibility of using the Weave as a place to gather, either because people are geographically distributed, or because the people meeting together desire a certain level of privacy.
