Description: Nola is the first being created by Uvot. She represents the life-giving power of sunlight and its ability to reveal things hidden in the dark. A nurturing deity, she abhors deadly cold and those who destroy things before they have a chance to come to fruition. She is pictured as a Touv woman of serene beauty, her head surrounded by a corona of flame. Priests of Nola are concerned with the growth and development of living things, especially children. Adventuring priests often see themselves in a parental role, watching over the adventuring companions and seeing to their maturation. Ceremonial garb includes a headdress and collar of copper and gold.
Relationships: Nola is the first being created by Uvot, who brought her to life by thanking the warm sun for blessing the land, that the land might create Uvot.
Nola admired Vogan, the god of rain and storms, the aspect of one complementing the other, both enriching their father Uvot. Vogan and Nola became the parents of Breeka, goddess of beasts and plants. Uvot blessed Nola, and she gave birth to Xanag, goddess of metals and beauty, born from Uvot’s earth and shining with the fire of her mother.
All the gods were born under Nola’s light except for Meyanok, who was born in darkness and pain and resented all the others for this. Meyanok gave birth to three dark spawn of his own.
Dogma: Nola represents the life-giving power of sunlight and its ability to reveal things that would otherwise be hidden by darkness. She is a nurturing force that abhors deadly cold and those who destroy things before they fully develop.
Clergy: Nola’s priests and shamans are concerned with the growth and development of living things, especially children. Her adventuring priests see themselves as parental figures watching over their companions and helping them mature. Their favored weapon is the javelin, and they may also wield the atl-atl, dagger, hand axe, short bow, and spear. On ceremonial occasions, they wear a headdress and collar of copper and gold.
