Rosemanis the True and the False


Rosemanis the True and the False

Playful, deceitful, earnest, and vindictive. Among all the Daughters, Rosemanis (rohs-MAN-iss) most accurately represents the world from the point of view of the individual. Truth and lies are all in the eye and mind of the beholder, and what is real and false, what begat sanity or madness, all of that certainly depends on who you are asking. She is the reverse side of fate’s coin from her sister Cornelis, cursed for her ill luck at inopportune times. She is crafty and cunning, scheming often to get others to do her will through devious methods and through convenient interpretation of law and contract. Known to many of her followers and detractors as the Lying Wife, she appears as a smiling woman, beautiful beyond belief, yet always sporting false fashion or accouterments to signify her domains. These can take the form of fake wings, masks, and even mock forms and language.

The followers of Rosemanis are greedy, bore easily, and are quick to argue semantics and cheat for gain. Thieves, obviously, are legion in her graces, as are assassins, illusionists and diplomats. Scribes and sages, interestingly enough, are her most fervent adherents, embracing the thin slice of her that is authentic and sincere, yet understanding that even while the written word and record is genuine, it takes a wave of her hand to twist its meaning to the detriment of any who wrote it. Yet they remain at her side, for it is the word of record that is important, and up to others to interpret its meaning. Rosemanites use gambling and pranks as common forms of worship, setting tithe plates overflowing with frogs, snap-crackers, and illusionary gold on the last day of every month.

Doctrine
Do what thou will. It is yours if you win it through deception or fraud. It is true only if you believe it, and a lie for the same reason. We know all, and it is up to us to tell you what that is. Those who have the gold, make the rules. Rules were meant to be broken. Rosemanis would never do anything to hurt you.
