Exalted: Ghost of a Chance
The as of yet unseen city god of Three Oaks. Amaal Arnisth is a caring god and dotes on its people who have a very close, spiritual relationship with it. Its temple gardens are tended daily by a devoted staff of priests and acolytes. Its two allotted festivals both occur during the season of wood, and it is primarily concerned with the the growth of its city and the harmony with the surrounding forest. Amaal Arnisth has issued an edict that none in the city may build structures or tools of wood, and so all buildings in Three Oaks are of stone. By its decree, as well, metal ornamentation is forbidden. Metal must be mined from the earth and this is disruptive. Three Oaks’ economy operates on the barter system since metal or jade coins or paper money are not permitted to be exchanged in the city.
Known only to the party as “the tree god,” she has shown herself to be petulant as well as petty. Her home and visage is a giant evergreen with its canopy near a mile above the surrounding forest. She has promised Willow knowledge of sorcery if she will give the god one of the Abyssals.
