Gossamer ___ ♠

Posted on Saturday, March 23rd, 2013 at 02:23
Gossamer ___ ♠ is the dynamic Yang Facet of strength without weight. Silken threads drifting in the wind, the forces that bend and shake trees and can rip and tear flesh. Gossamer is the light, airy opposite of Burden.

Annex Root

Hand or breath based Annexes

If you want to build an Annex for a painter or a dragon then a Gossamer Root is a good place to start.

Annex Channel

Strength, sound or textile Annexes

When you are building a strong-man, a singer or musician, or even a web-slinging silk-worm themed superhero then they might need a Gossamer Channelling Facet.

Whether its a bunch of off-duty army doctors playing cards, men or women in the barbershop or beauty parlour there's plenty to like about the Conversational tone of the Gossamer Facet. You can tell whole stories and examine deep into a conflict with nothing more than a conversation.
