The second day in this challenge is, “How did you first become aware of this deity?”
This is a fun question for me. The short answer is that I found him through my husband. The long answer is; my husband does a thing he calls Weaving. You become a hero in the world he’s been the caretaker/curator of since he was a kid and he Weaves that hero’s story into the mythos with the help of the decisions you make, the people you talk to, and the actions you take (yeah, it’s kind of like a one man D&D with no math, I won’t lie). It’s a really interesting and addicting process (I’m not the only one who’s done it by a long shot). Any way, the first time I met The General was during my very first session doing this. Now, my husband had talked about him briefly before this, so when he came up in the Weave I knew exactly who I was seeing/hearing. He couldn’t get his hands on my hero (she’d been promised to Lady Death already via Grandmother Time) so his first words to me were, “Dammit! Don’t worry, I’ll getcha next time kid”. I’m sure the life lessons I’ll get from that one will be an interesting sort.
I’ll be making a separate post for my Daily Tarot. I feel like these shouldn’t be smashed together.
