The Thorn Within the Rose
Tibris is another of the ascended humans made a deity in the wake of The Lost’s ascension. An archmage at the time, Tibris has retained his mostly sour, books over people personality from his mortal days. While ostensibly the god of magic, the human preference for divine casting has made his arcane understanding almost irrelevant for modern humans, and Tibris is now considered out of fashion to worship, his clerics considered most useful for their learning and scribing talents. He is most valued for his love of script: Tibris preserves all language that is spoken, all dialects, and is said to record everything written in his library of spellbooks, logbooks, literature, and writing. Tibris is an avid collector of knowledge and learning, attempting to preserve everything, including spells. He is one of the few deities who doesn’t want food in his altar, but books, records, labels, dictionaries, and scrolls. It is said every word placed in his altars he remembers for the length of his godhood. It is also said Tibris will answer any prayer made while burning an arcane scroll in his name, resulting in a production of scrolls by the elves when Aeia flies over Maw. As part of his role as notary, Tibris preserves artistic creations burnt for him, and is often used by merchants to help them keep perfect (or forged) ledgers.
Tibris is a human with a stork’s head. He is thin and whispy, and wears arcane robes so archaic he is considered a comical figure. He is always shown holding a book, scroll, or other writing. His holy symbol is a quill in an inkbottle. His favored weapon is the quarterstaff. Tibris grants Artifice, Knowledge, Law, Magic, Protection, Rune. His clerics are generally expected to offer a scroll when available, or keep a journal and burn it to him when sufficiently interesting. Tibris is Lawful Neutral.
