Wee Jas

Wee Jas is often referred to as the Vain goddess. She seems to care more about a external impression as about anything else. Make-Up and cover up seem to be her middle names. On the other hand she clearly is a god of the dead in the sense that she will never blame anyone for following another deity.

  • Like the other four gods of the dead, Anubis, Goliath and Nephthys, Wee Jas is not a vengeful god, nor does she care much about what the other gods do to each other or among each other. She is just very vain and that shows in her followers.
    No one will be able to say that Wee Jas is a egocentric god, because she will always share her temple with the followers of Goliath, even though Goliath and his followers have no use for vanity or beauty. Most of the time, she will share her temple also with the followers of Anubis and Nephthys, but the latter two sometimes elect to have a temple of their own.
    Also Clerics are often shared among the gods of the dead. Wee Jas's clerics often are also clerics of Anubis.
    Followers of Wee Jas are found among all races except for Elf's.

    Holy grounds
    Temples of Wee Jas are usually found near a cemetery, though the main area of the temple of Wee Jas is actually a open space with signs of burning skulls on all walls. In this open area, the dead are burned to ashes, for this purpose a altar is erected that stands about 2 feet high and is usually about 3 feet wide and 10 feet long. At the head of the alter, which points north, a basin filled with oil is attached.

    Attending services
    Clerics of Wee Jas are required to attend a ritual burning at least once every week and they need to attend a service at least once every four weeks.
    When her clerics attend a services, Wee Jas requires them to appear wearing perfume and make-up. For onlookers, it seems that the people attending the service are on their way to a party at the king's or queen's castle.

    Followers of Wee Jas think she guards the gates of the afterlife. She judges everyone who knocks on the gigantic doors and the only thing she sees is the outer side. Well she can see the inside of course, but she does not care about that at all.
    Because of this, her followers will take every possible trouble to wash the deceased, put on his/her finest clothes, apply make-up, anything to make the deceased look as stunning as possible.
    Once the deceased is prepared, he/she will be placed on the alter and burned to ashes. If no temple is available, the deceased will be burned in a clearing, with his/her head pointing north.
    It is on a very rare occasion that followers of Wee Jas will send of their dead by burying them.
