Fall of the Warlock Kings
The Earth Mother
Great Mother, Lady Fertile, Queen of Corn. One of the great gods of Afyon. Spouse of the Lord of War, mother of the Twins of Love, the Huntress, the Winged Traveler and the Lady of Health. She is the patron of many cities of the plains, of farmers and of mothers. Her color is tan. She appears as a pregnant, plump woman, most often a hobgoblin, though sometimes an eladrin, and often as a horse or cow. Her temples are often earth-walled, with sunken floors. Births are held to be auspicious if they occur within such a temple, and farmers bring an offering of seed or grain in hopes of her favor. Orphanages are attached to many of the temples, especially near or in cities.
