Mother of Herds
The daughter of Ernalda and the Father of Beasts, Eiritha
is the mother of all cattle, including the herd beasts of Prax.
Indeed, her favorite place was Prax, where she lived with her
daughters, each the mother of a species of herd beast. When
the mighty Storm Bull came to Prax, Eiritha gave up her old
paramours and married the god.
Death came for Eiritha one day, but was baffled when he
could not find her. A hero named Orani, son of the Storm
Bull, fought with Death and delayed the god, though he
paid with his own life. During that time, the wily Tada led
his people to dig a great pit and hide the goddess within the
womb of the earth again. Death was fooled, but since that
time Eiritha may never again walk freely in Prax.
Eiritha is the source of fecundity and rich milk for all
hoofed and horned creatures. Every farmer or herder calls
her by whatever local animal he favors. The nomad herders
of Prax and Pent are utterly dependent upon Eiritha for their
daily survival. Eiritha is the woman’s cult for all Praxian
nomads. She is worshiped throughout Dragon Pass.
All initiates start with the Ignite spell
as an additional spirit magic spell that does not count against
their 5 points of starting cult spirit magic. Only female Praxians can join Eiritha’s cult.
