Delving in The Dreamlands
‘The Shatterer of Worlds’ – Astarte has had a varied cult that has reached throughout the Dreamlands and beyond into the Waking World – or is it the other way round?
In the lands of dream she is one of the ‘Great Ones’: mostly wholesome gods openly worshipped by regular folk.
She is depicted as a helmeted warrior bearing spear and shield, warring against the unwholesome gods who would threaten the worship – and even existence – of the Great Ones. Emblazoned on her shield is The Elder Sign: a five pointed star, with an eye bearing a pillar of flame at its centre.
It is said that the servants of evil cannot bear to see or pass near an Elder Sign.
Astarte is the patron goddess of the Cleric-errant Loic Sadiq.
