RE: GOD JAMMER
i vote we awaken the painting, it seems both benevolent and devoted, both very good traits, plus when our holy text is eventually written down im sure our first act of godhood to involve iconography of a long dead religion would be both thematically appropriate and inspire more awe then the pun about doors closing

plus if there are any followers of the god left it might help smooth them into converts of us

>Awaken the painting; its strength of spirit will make it more valuable as a follower than a door. Besides, who could possibly benefit more from Closure than the deceased?

Agree!

> AWAKEN that painting.

The obelisk might be a good second, though! 'Meticulous' might be something we need later, but I don't think 'calculating' is something we need now.

I'd prefer one of the doors, but the painting is good too if that's what we're going for

RE: GOD JAMMER
Still voting for painting, but the Doors do seem a decent pick.
Perhaps for second + third awakening (Perhaps awaken both at the same time?), a pair of door pals to keep the entrance secure?
Quiet. Good for an unusual opinion. Doesn't talk much.

>The Painting

You briefly consider the gates and the front doors to this church, but decide to put those ideas on the backburner for now in favor of the painting on the first floor. Its beauty is alluring after all. You use your song AWAKEN on the painting, causing the spirit inside to resonate with your energy. The frame rattles against the wall as the whole painting shakes and kicks around, then with a burst of energy it pops off its hook and falls to the ground, its form twisting and reforming till it emerges into a new form.

It turns into a CANVAS CONSTRICTOR, a spirit born from paintings, drawing their power from the time and attentiveness given their creation. The spirit snakes through the air weightlessly and speaks in a whispering voice.

???: Resounding God, blessings upon you. Is it you who has called for me as I slumber in this gallery?
Fin: Yes! You're the first spirit I've awaken actually, I am Fin, God of Closure.
???: How exciting! It is strange however that I have been painted with devotion to another God, her form emblazoned upon my chest.
Fin: Will that be a problem if I were to ask you to serve me?
???: Act with respect to her memory and I will find no fault in serving the new steward of her temple. What is my name God of Closure?

The name you give this spirit will be a contract binding them to your service. If this name is discarded, so is the contract.

What is their name? >_

Hmmmm. How about Rococo? It's an art thing and it kinda sounds like a snake rattle.

RE: GOD JAMMER
how about Ali? , as in the Ale part of Finale?

RE: GOD JAMMER
Assuming their contracted name need not be the name they generally go by, Vas'anc for the contract, with their choice of what they wish to normally be referred to as.
If not, then Lomanasi.

e: Alternatively, ask if the God they were created in devotion towards still exists. If not, then it would be fitting to be named in their image.

We should also ask more about their memories and history.

I like this one

I feel like naming them for the deity painted on them who we never met would be a little creepy and maybe presumptuous

RE: GOD JAMMER
Rococo is fun and sounds like something i would call a normal snake

im also tossing Whisp, Splash, and Colour as names i would like
I wanna be a real friend, Don't wanna break when I bend
I wanna a be no seeker, I wanna scream eureka

RE: GOD JAMMER
From then on out, you shall be named Powder, and you shall bear this name with or without pride. It is yours to use.

I'm leaning into Powder or Ash. I'm also considering Textile and Thread. The first name I thought of was Swish.

Audinas sounds cool. Why not?

Rococo seems a bit too silly.

i'm going to suggest fuseli or lam, both the names of painters who painted a lot of weird god stuff

You decide on the name Rococo, contracting this spirit's service to your domain. They will henceforth be formally referred to as Rococo, Spirit of Closure.

As your servant, you are able to DISCERN much more detailed information about them than before. Their SUIT refers to what classification of spirit they fall under, Rococo's is TOMES given to spirits who fall under spirits who oversee skills and knowledge. Their STATUS refers to their general state at the moment, Normal is the default state of a healthy being. Their ABILITIES refer to their inherent abilities:

FLIGHT refers to Rococo's ability to sail effortlessly through the air.

RUNEMAKING refers to Rococo's ability to make Song Runes using the ink they're able to produce from their body. These runes are sealed with the power of a Song and can be used to enchant items, place traps, or generally extend the effect of a Song as long as the rune remains intact.

Their SONGS are their library of Songs.

SWANSONG- is inherited from your songlist.
GALLERY PIECE- is a song which causes the target to suddenly be gripped by a strong emotion, this effect lasts a second till the sudden emotion passes.

Rococo's INVENTORY is limited to 2 items. Items that naturally stack like a blade and scabbard count as 1 item, two different items however count as 2.

Your form seems to change as well! Your body flattens out into a thin shape with arms and legs! It appears your willpower along with what you've chosen to awaken has taken an influence on how your body forms! Using these hands instead of your wispy tendrils will make cleaning much easier.

Fin: It's nice having someone here who isn't trying to haggle me out of something.
Rococo: Pardon?
Fin: Oh it's nothing. I guess I'm curious though, who were you painted for? Do you know?
Rococo: But of course, it was Ash, Goddess of Pyres. I have been gathering dust for a long time since her passing, however it's hard to keep track of exactly how long.
Fin: Anything I should know about honoring her memory?
Rococo: She would want the graves outside cared for and the church kept clean. They are after all the treasured resting places of people long past.
Fin: Seems simple enough!

You have also gained a few new Songs yourself:

DIRECT- You are able to oversee and give commands to one of your followers no matter their distance, their eyes are yours. A follower can choose to ignore or go against a command depending on their personal feelings.
SILHOUETTE- You are able to move about as a shadow on the wall or floor.
UNAWAKEN- An awoken spirit under your control reverts back to their previous form. This freezes their status at the moment this song is cast upon them.
REAWAKEN- A spirit that was previously awoken by you can be re-awoken with no energy needed.

With your new follower, you've been given some new opportunities. What is your next course of action?

Hm. I had a feeling the painting would make for a decent manager, but we don't have much for them to manage at the moment...
>Would awakening the tombstones as-needed be fine? No particularly pressing issues we can't handle at the moment, but the assistance in protecting/maintaining the grounds would be useful.
>Ask if this building has/had an underground area. There appears to be a circular something on this floor that may lead below. Or given the opening, may have done so until some burglar stole the handle.

RE: GOD JAMMER
So, we have a few possible objectives. We need material to repair the boat and the spire, and we also need to be around when Wick eventually contacts us through the candle. We could also try leaving our realm, just a little, just to see what's around us. And we also still know very little about the world.
I'd like to address that last one first. Lets ask Rococo more about Ash. What did she do, as a god? How did she die?
