|Difficulty of Invocation: 1|
|Domain: food, water|
Piskor the Generous is a goddess often called upon for extending food supplies and purifying water. Piskor is a pretty accessible deity who takes a very specific interest in disasters involving large numbers of people in need of food or water.
partial incantation; "Awir thigo lan takkoz wesfir yu! Your generosity is needed!"
A doorway shrine to Piskor in the Allston neighborhood of Ethshar of the Spices shows a goddess or woman wearing a green robe and a golden tiara. Her hands are down and open, as if she’s giving something, but she isn’t smiling. There’s an offering bowl at her feet that generally contains nothing but dust.
A reputable theurgist said of it; long as that house is under her protection, no one within its walls shall starve, and all drinking water therein shall be pure and wholesome. To maintain her blessing the resident should place a copper bit in the bowl at least once a year; if it’s stolen, that’s fine, the goddess will consider it well spent. Should the goddess intervene directly on behalf of the resident, extending their food supplies or cleansing their water of disease, they may be called upon through dreams or other divine messages to perform certain minor services on her behalf for the poor and unfortunate of the city. One example would be distributing food in the Hundred-Foot Field, though it would be nothing too onerous. If these duties are ignored not only will Piskor’s protections be withdrawn, but neighbors will begin to become hostile.
Hanner looked at the sky; the eastern horizon was brightening now. Dawn was almost upon them; that might help. He turned to see how the theurgists were doing, just in time to see a blaze of light. He felt a sudden pressure on his face and in his ears, and blinked; when his eyes opened again a woman was standing before him, a beautiful woman in a green gown and golden crown, thick black hair tumbling down her back, surrounded by a golden glow so intense Hanner could see nothing through it except the woman.
