    Lightbulb [Deity] The Frigid Bitch

    Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya, the Frigid Bitch
    (Sone-lay-ah-own-hee-lie-ow-yay-ta-oo-yah)
    Lesser God (Lawful Evil)


    Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya teaches the way to remove one's self from all emotion, especially the hot-blooded ones, such as love, passion and fury. Only when one sees the world as sharp and clear as the edge of a snowflake can they truly be said to have achieved enlightenment.

    This goddess claims to cure pain and suffering through this, for if one cannot feel they can no longer hurt. If you no longer hurt you are truly undefeatable. She lives by this rule, though she is still said to experience a hatred and anger so cold that it can barely be said to be an emotional state at all.

    By the time the worshipers of the Frigid Bitch die their souls are colder than ice and harder than diamond. They are the most beautiful of jewels to Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya, and she literally works them into finery which she wears or displays, keeping her promise to her worshipers that she will give them a place of admiration in the afterlife. Those that look into the gem can see a cold flame flickering, displaying the life of the being from their eyes.

    Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya is beauteous and desirable, even by the standards of the deities, and any and all would have her if they could, but none can spark within her the least desire. She remains aloof and cold to all things, and her only desire seems to be to turn the hearts of all creatures, men, beast and immortal to ice. She normally appears as a woman with a complexion paler than snow, and eyes so blue they glint with purple. Her lips are bloodless and the color of a freezing corpse's. A feathery mist surrounds her shoulders, hiding everything from the bust down. Her head is normally adorned in some fashion, each jewel she wears specially chosen. It may be anything from a fantastic collection of thousands on a necklace, or a single one set into her forehead.

    Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya favorite weapon is the dagger.

    Portfolio: Loss, loneliness, the forlorn, antipathy, ice and jewels

    Domains: Cold, Law, Mind

    Cleric Training: Clerics of the Frigid Bitch abandon all those they may have loved or had affection for to gain her notice. They meditate each day to rid themselves of all emotions, striving for a pure, logical chillness of spirit.

    Quests: Clerics of the Frigid Bitch often will perform atrocities, all completely unemotional, in an attempt to bring others to hurt so badly they will seek peace, even if it means the complete freezing of their selves.

    Prayers: None pray to Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya, for she does not wish or require their affection. She is a force to be worshiped, and they simply ask her for what is needed, and she gives it if it will further her goals.

    Temples: Temples to the Frigid Bitch are merely there to convince others of their dedication to their deity's path. She in no way displays any appreciation for these structures, though secretly admires the gems and blue ice used in their construction, though not the effort.

    Rites: Those who finally gain the notice, though never the favor, of the Frigid Bitch must in some way prove their extinguishing of emotions. Something they once held dear, or hated, or was emotionally attached to must be destroyed or ripped away from them in some fashion. Much of the time this is the willing deletion of their memories before they came into her service.

    "Lonliness" should be "loneliness," and "fornlorn" should be "forlorn."

    Prayers: None pray to Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya, for she does not wish or require their affection. She is a forced to be worshiped, and they simply ask her for what is needed, and she gives it if it will further her goals.
    "She is a force to be worshiped?" I think that's what you meant. That last sentence is kind of unclear. Maybe you could get rid of one of the "and" words. Like..."She is a force to be worshiped. Those who do simply ask for what is needed, and she gives it if it will further her goals."

    Much of the time this is the willing deletion of their memories before they came into her service.
    Perhaps you meant "...before they come..."

    "Solitude" is perhaps a better word for what this particular character is about.

    "Loneliness" implies a sense of mortal attachment that doesn't fit into Sonia's brand of enlightenment.

    No, before they came. That is like the last rite before they fully become a cleric.

    "Solitude" is perhaps a better word for what this particular character is about.

    She preys upon the lonely however, so just added it to the portfolio.

    Lawful Evil. Should be there... apparently I somehow put the spellchecked and complete version in my Dying Ember campaign page and then put the unfinished here.

    Well now, adventurers are supposed to be impertinent in their defiance of the fates themselves. I aspire to an impudent familiarity which the Frigid Bitch may find unwelcome.

    Sonia.

    Used to have one on the Wizards site but they went and deleted most of it. Will try to get one rounded up here someday.

    Have a decent bit of homebrew in my A Dying Ember campaign in my signature.

    This is why such shorthand names are referred to as "diminutive."

    Philosophers ought to philosophize with hammers. Or more precisely, our philosophical adventurer ought to take a prybar to the diamond eyes or what-have-you of the temple idol.

    Congratulations, Sonlayahonhilaiouyatauya appears nowhere else in the internet.
    Not that I'm suprised, with a name like that

    I like this, she is not prayed to, interesting. A nice contrast to the idea of people referencing Pelor say, every second word.

    Well, it's praying in the sense in that you're begging supplication of a distant and inscrutable power which may be just as likely screw you over as not.

    You know, the old-school kind of praying.

    But just you wait until those liberal sectarian reformers get ahold of your Ice Queen religion. Liberties will be taken unless she's the kind of lady to punish anybody stepping out of prescribed formula.

    Excellent work, as usual! I wish I'd been keeping up more with the divine supplements in 4e. I might like to see her signature powers and such in that edition. :)

    I'm just saying. Some revisions of sects on a regional basis to target demographics appropriately might work better for spreading the Good Word.

    Heyas Grey, haven't seen you about of late! Should have guessed that title would attract admins though

    I need to get into 4th ed someday and see what they've done with it. Gods get signature abilities beyond 'PHENOMENAL COSMIC POW-AHHH!' I take it?

    I prefer her shortened name as "Sonlaya" (soon lay 'ya) to emphasize the empty promise that will never come to be, yet keeps you worshipping her. I think this is also the goddess of ex-wives. That's why she has jewels in her profile, she wants to receive them while keeping yours frozen and in her purse.

    There are women who, however you may search them, prove to have no content but are purely masks. The man who associates with such almost spectral, necessarily unsatisfied beings is to be commiserated with, yet it is precisely they who are able to arouse the desire of the man most strongly: he seeks for her soul -- and goes on seeking.

    Can I steal it?
    Just some hours ago I was thinking (showeling away from my courtyard literal mountains of snow ) about my campaign setting (conception in progress) and in particular about the Human Pantheon.
    Your Frigid Bitch it's a perfect counterpart to my Vesta-Venere-Eros-Sune-alike goddess of Love, Passion, tamed Fire and Prostitution.
    I was even going to have her called ''The Holy Bitch'' by a sect of her cult focalised on the less politically correct part of the faith
    I will use the unspellable name only for the extreme-northern worshippers, because in my setting every god has many names and sects/churches throughout the world, but don't worry, it's a private homebrew that I'm doing only for me and an eventual group, no publishing and even no posting on the forums
    Yes I'm gelous of my works, but I hope you aren't.

    I don't mind my stuff being used in the least, (y'know, aside from being published under another name).

    Only thing I ask for the use of my homebrew is to let me know how it is received/works out in your games or whatnot.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either.

    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    I've got a red pen and I'm not afraid to use it.
