Spider Deity

The Täjaran empire reveres the spider god Anansi as one of the five Chief Gods that preside over the world. Anansi represents the cunning of mankind as well as rebellion against unjust oppression and is credited with the liberation of mankind from the grip of the Monstrous Reptiles. Nearly five hundred years ago the Magister of the Gods imparted to the people of the Empire that as punishment for his tricks against the other four Chiefs, Anansi has been cast from the Vaults of Heaven and doomed to walk the earth as a mortal for seven thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven years.
