Emissary of Athya

Devotion Tale
Emissaries of Athya claim to follow the one true goddess, the lady of fate, the weaver of the Great Tapestry, and lady of Zh'vael. They often come to this strength of devotion after some twist of fate or destiny convinces them that the world is not simply chaos, but has some order to the bedlam they observe. These emissaries tend to make a bargain with Athya, one that will forever change their destiny. Some become missionaries, spreading belief of Athya over all other gods; others hold their beliefs tight, using the powers granted by the goddess to whatever ends they see fit - after all, if it comes to be, it must be the will of the weaver. In less devout circles, Athya has less sway than some of the more entertaining gods, while the folk of the countryside tend to focus more often on the more nature aligned deities. In all cases, a focus on Athya is unusual, and sometimes viewed with a touch of suspicion.
The Bargain is Struck • Signature Talent • Action
As a slow action, tie a thread around your wrist; the next time you would fall unconscious, the thread evaporates instead. You may only have 1 thread tied to you at a time.
Dodge Fate • Tier 1 Talent
Once per encounter, you may reroll your attribute die when making a defensive check.
Sharp Objects • Tier 1 Talent • Action
Make a Magic vs Armor check against a nearby character; if successful, launch 1 + mastery shards of fate, each dealing d4 + Magic damage to the target. If you have mastery > 4, you may split the shards amongst two characters (roll a check separately for each).
Critical: Add 1 additional damage to each shard.
Curse of Fate • Tier 2 Talent • Action
Once per encounter, make a Magic vs Steel check against a nearby target; if successful, they are cursed.
Critical: You may take this action once again this encounter.
Fingers of Zh'vael • Tier 2 Talent • Action
Select a point up to far away; make a Magic vs Steel check against all characters within Magic spaces of that point; for each success, that character feels the pull of Zh'vael, and will suffer d3 damage on the start of their turn for the next 2 + mastery turns (if in danger, otherwise, will suffer only d3 damage immediately).
Harvest • Tier 3 Talent • Action
Once per encounter, make a Steel vs Difficulty + 4 - mastery check against an adjacent dead mortal; if successful, extract a thread from the corpse. (This action can only be successfully performed once per corpse, regardless of who takes it.)
Devotion to Athya • Tier 3 Talent
Your Unravel action now counts as a free action up to 1 + mastery times per encounter.
Notes: This talent requires devotion to Athya. Athya requires you exhibit these virtues: thoughtfulness, deliberation, and carefulness. See the Narrator's Guide for more details on devotion.
Tarr’ko • Tarr'ko Talent
You gain an innate tarr’ko card - Reverse, the Cyclic Reveal.
Notes: Innate tarr’ko cards cannot be lost, stolen, or exchanged; they are gibberish to anyone else who looks at them.
