Inside Vasini 5: Rasah, Goddess of Obligations, Promises and Contracts

Before the fall of the deities, Rasah was the goddess associated with obligations, promises and contracts. The youngest daughter of Shen-ak-Vhah, she was depicted as a young girl made of brilliant white marble with contracts and obligations carved into her. In honour of her form, and as part of their worship of her, followers of Rasah would tattoo contracts with the goddess onto their own bodies.

Since the fall, some city-states, including Vasini, have outlawed tattooing certain body parts (none have outlawed it entirely), to ensure that it isn’t the “covert” worship of the goddess.

Inside Vasini 3: The Government

Vasini is ruled by seven elected officials: a comte – the city’s leader – and six seigneurs who each have responsibility for a specific portfolio, such as sanitation and public waterways, referred to as a baronnie. This government is scrutinised by seven elected médiateurs.

The elections are hard fought between Vasini’s two political factions – the Kingfishers and the Scarlets – with each side trying to muster the support of the city’s elite. It’s not unheard of for the elections to lead to violence between the two sides.

Inside Vasini 2: The Founding Laws

Vasini existed for centuries prior to the fall of the deities. However, ‘modern’ Vasini is considered to have been founded 68 years after the Fall as a result of two key events: the beginning of the construction of a wall around both the city and the nearby farmland; and the signing of the Founding Laws by the leaders of the city at that time, most notably Thomas Everett.
