“We all remember the famine. We remember the empty larders and our babies crying from the pangs in their stomachs and not having a thing but sympathy and sorrow to fill them with. Horg-Sow took that all away. And all she asks in return is a day of plenty to honor her. A morning of revelry. And an evening to feast.”
– Elder Merasmus Cooper, devout of Horg-Sow
The world is filled with hungry folk. Mortals who must scrabble and scrape for everything that they so desperately need or ardently desire. Food for the hungry. Power for the powerless. A stroke of bad luck and a dry season turns the potential for a full belly and safe night’s sleep into a dream that only dares visit the entrenched powers of the city and countryside alike. It’s in the fallow fields and overrunning gutters of the realms where good men and women lay forgotten that the Glut of Horg-Sow makes their home.
To accept the blessings of Horg-Sow is to never know hunger again, no matter what a body may crave. Influence, safety, a house filled with the sighs of contentment that follow a hearty meal and precede a deep and dreamless sleep. But the gifts of Horg-Sow, plentiful and wholesome as they are, understandably demand a sacrifice. A pound of flesh for a season of plenty. And by the wretched grace of Horg-Sow, a feast for all.
