A Shifting of Planes
The Wadatsumi, god of chaos and the sea
Domains: Tempest, Grave
Symbol: A Strand of Kelp
The Wadatsumi, calm and tempest, appears normally as a huge blue whale. Neither male nor female, it often swims alongside other sea creatures, calling them to play with it’s song. The song can often be heard by passing ships and is often mistaken for the deadly song of the siren. But the Wadatsumi’s domain is not only the sea, as sometimes the sky and sea must merge into deadly-beautiful storms. When these tempests occur the Wadatsumi takes the form of a giant humanoid striding across the ocean’s surface. Its arms raise to the heavens, calling down the rain and thunder; its feet stir the waves into dangerous breakers and swells. As it walks, its song becomes deafening and only the bravest creatures come to frolic in the chaotic marriage of air and water. Few mortal sailors have seen the storm-apparition of the Wadatsumi and survived. The Wadatsumi’s alignment is true Neutral, though it tends to reject worshippers who do not have a playful nature or cannot take a joke.
