Reign of Winter
The legends say that Cayden Cailean never meant to become a god. As a hired sword working out of Absalom, Cayden was renowned for taking on any job, so long as the cause was just and the coin was plentiful. One night, on an intoxicated stupor, a fellow drunk dared him to take on the Test of the Starstone. He accepted, and somehow, 3 days later, Cayden emerged from the Starstone’s sacred cathedral as a living god.
Amazed that he passed the tests and unable to remember how he did it, he continued in his godly life much as he did when a mortal – fighting for just causes, enjoying various alcohols, and doing only what he wanted to do. This simple philosophy appeals to many mortals both high and low, and adventureres, philanthropists, revelers, and freedom fighters all claim him as a patron god.
