Discovering the New World
(aka “The Shepherd”)
When mortals discovered the paths that bridge the worlds, they had their first encounter with the kindest of the gods. Planes ensures that mortals, spirits, and other beings stay where they belong, and that the delicate boundaries remain intact. He is the one who taught the first mages how to open their minds and communicate with the spirits, a birth ritual that has become ubiquitous. Kindness and mercy are his signature, and as such he takes a very dim view of the cruel, but he also has the job of punishing those who trespass in realms to which they don’t belong.
