Rank 0 - Nivå 1
Desna (uttales DEZ-nuh) var en av de første gudene, men mens de andre gudene i starten var opptatt med å skape Golarion brukte Desna det meste av hennes tid til å skape himmelen. Hun har forandret seg lite siden denne tiden og hun at hennes troende finner stor glede i å utforske verden. 
Rank 1 - Nivå 2
Desna is one of Golarion’s oldest deities, and she has changed little since the dawn of civilization. Her worship has always been strongest in the regions known today as Varisia and Ustalav, and despite the fact that she herself does not generally appear as a Varisian, she seems to identify most strongly with these folk.
Rank 3 - Nivå 3
Utseende til Guden
Desna is depicted as a comely elven woman, clad in billowing gowns with brightly colored butterfly wings on her back, usually surrounded by clouds of butterflies.
Desna’s avatar is a beautiful but coy female elven acolyte of her faith. When she wishes to reveal her true nature, her clothing becomes a billowing silken gown and she grows brightly colored butterfly wings on her back, although in somber situations her wing colors are pale and moth-like.
Her herald is the Night Monarch, a butterfly-like outsider the size of a dragon.
Relasjoner til andre Guder
Desna remains cautious about leaving herself vulnerable to others, though she encourages even godly paramours to explore and discover new things while they try to court her. Cayden Cailean has made attempts to woo Desna, a flirtation she finds endearing and that reminds her of her own youth. She battles Zon-Kuthon because she wants the night to remain a time of wonder rather than of fear and oppression, Rovagug contests for the void of space where her stars reside, and her battles with Ghlaunder and Lamashtu are ongoing. Desna’s only sources of comfort among the deities are Sarenrae, who tends to her wounds after battling the evils of the night, and Shelyn, who ever reinvigorates her spirits and creates new wonders to be explored.
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 3
Since that day, all those who look up to the stars find themselves captivated by the endless mysteries of the sky. Trailblazers, scouts, adventurers, and sailors praise her name, as do caravaneers and those who travel for business, and her luck makes her a favorite of gamblers and thieves.
Priests of Desna—cleric, bard, ranger, or the rare druid—go where they please, earning money by telling fortunes, providing entertainment, and interpreting dreams as messages from the goddess. They help people where they can, preferring to make their acts seem like luck, coincidence, or the blessings of their goddess.
Services dedicated to Desna include singing, dancing, storytelling, footraces, and music. Some take exotic substances to spark unusual or lucid dreams. Services use crushed rose quartz dust instead of water or sacred oil; her priests carry holy quartz dust in glass flasks instead of holy water.
Kirken av Desna, Rank 3
Desna’s church is extremely disorganized with no formal chain of command.
Tegn i fra Guden
Desna prefers to intervene in the form of dreams, sending simple impressions, visions, or even prophecies that the sleeper clearly remembers upon awakening. Rarely, a follower in need might awaken with the benefit of a minor helpful spell that persists throughout the day. When dreams are unsuitable or time is short, she indicates her favor with f lights of swallowtail butterf lies, sparrows, dragonf lies, geese f lying in a four-pointed star shape, or the timely arrival of messenger birds. She shows her disfavor with a dreamless sleep that fails to refresh the sleeper (as if the person had not slept at all), sore feet, messenger animals losing their messages, and minor travel accidents.
Desna's holidays are on the solstices and the equinoxes. These are days of dreams and remembrances, journeys taken and travels yet to be imagined. The Ritual of Stardust, held on the summer and winter solstices, is a day of love and friendship. Each begins in the late afternoon, when the faithful bring flammable items to fires, whether solitary or communal, and spend the early evening daydreaming. When true darkness falls, they stoke the fires, building great blazes, and throw in sand and powdered gems. The resulting sparks that fly into the night symbolize the stars among which Desna walks and where her worshipers hope to tread one day. They cast in mementos of things they wish to forget or move past and symbols of the dreams they still hope to live, sending them among the stars and into Desna’s care.
The Swallowtail Festival, held on the autumnal equinox, commemorates the fall of an avatar of Desna when fighting Lamashtu, and the avatar’s healing by a blind child. Celebration of this event involves all manner of feasting, community-wide fairs, and cooperative games culminating in the release of a wagonload of swallowtail butterflies near the faithful, and those who are fortunate enough to have a butterfly land on them are thought to be especially beloved of Desna. In places where it is too cold for butterflies, the faithful release colored paper or painted corn husks into the breeze.
Rank 5 - Nivå 4
Notable outsiders who serve her are
- Nightspear (a fierce avoral)
- The Prince of the Night Sky (an arrogant djinn)
- Sorrowbrand (a dramatic lillend).
Kirken av Desna, Rank 5
Many caravan masters like to hire a priest of Desna to accompany their wagons (as they believe it brings good luck, especially in regard to warding off attacks from beasts), and this gives the priest an excuse to travel when she has no other pressing matters. Many of Desna’s faithful are talented artists, writers, and entertainers, and the church expects all priests to at least be familiar with contemporary music, theater, and literature.
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 5
Her followers are often wide-eyed, exuberant people who embrace the world in all its strangeness, and are willing to jump in with both feet. Desnans aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty while living life to its fullest. Critics call them hedonists, but that is an exaggeration, as worldly experience is their true goal.
Formal attire for most of the priesthood is a flowing white robe with black trim and a matching silken cap, although ranking members of the church add more decorative elements.
Desna is an impulsive and aloof goddess who delights in freedom, discovery, and mystery. Her aloofness stems not from arrogance but from confidence in her own abilities and her desire to be unburdened by troubles. She is a collection of contrasts—an ancient goddess who dislikes predicting the future, a traveler who cares nothing for her destination, a carefree creature of instinct haunted by a past tretching back eons, and a peaceful deity forced to battle with old enemies, eternally young despite the weight of ages and stars upon her.
Hellige Tekster, Rank 5
Her holy text is The Eight Scrolls, which is short enough to easily fit in two scroll cases.
Templer og Helligdommer, Rank 5
Desna keeps few temples, preferring unattended shrines at crossroads and places of secluded beauty. They sometimes double as stargazing sites. Desna’s presence is common in good communal temples
Organisasjon, Rank 5
Whispered Song, Del 1 The Whispered Song is a hidden group of Desnan worshipers in the darkest reaches of shadow-haunted Nidal, center of the cult of the insane god Zon-Kuthon. Even in the black evil of this blasted country, these devotees of the Song of the Spheres maintain hope, nourishing the remnant aspirations and dreams of the cowed populace. The worship they espouse is banned, but the cause they champion is just. Their lives are forfeit should they ever be captured, and so they work in disguise and undercover with the faithful of Milani to build a resistance with the veneration of the goddess of luck and dreams at its head.
Rank 7 - Nivå 5
Troende og Geistlige, Rank 7
Priests have a tradition of exploring distant places and leaving a mark that indicates someone of the faith has been there. This “found-mark” might be as simple as the goddess’s symbol scratched on a flat rock or tree trunk. One who has marked many sites in this way is called a Founder and is held in great esteem.
Some Desnans are skilled fortune-tellers and dreaminterpreters. They oppose the use of divination to create fear or despair, and brush off unhappy requests such as when someone might die. Her diviners challenge any speaker who prophesies ill, misfortune, or doom, and when they hear of ill auguries, they intervene to make sure those events do not come to pass. Her faithful oppose dreampredators and are charged with protecting commonfolk against dangerous beasts. Some tutor young nobles in the arts and may act as their bodyguards.
Om Guden, Rank 7
Some believe Desna is flighty, frivolous, and easily distracted, but she has a hard, cold side that few see, born of loss, tragedy, and battle. As a luck goddess, she always believes there is a chance for success. She knows that people fear the unknown, that dreams can turn to nightmares, and a bright destiny can become a dark fate; these opposites in her own nature define her and give her things to strive against. She challenges those who would corrupt her domain or have wronged her friends or followers.
Kirken av Desna, Rank 7
Desna’s church is extremely disorganized with no formal chain of command. Personal expertise in a specific field trumps mere combat prowess or spellcasting ability. This structure means that Desnans have certain ideas about what they consider “informed” authority; they feel free to ignore nobles, politicians, and other “meritless” leaders if more knowledgeable folk are on hand to provide better advice.
Organisasjon, Rank 7
Whispered Song, Del 2 Members of the Whispered Song dare not identify themselves for fear of losing everything—lives, families, and souls—but it is said that they have tried to burrow into the Umbral Court itself, and they wait and watch newcomers to Nidal, judging them and possibly inviting those they deem worthy to help. Their numbers remain few, but their agents maintain contact with places where Desna’s worship is stronger, and they are absolutely dedicated to their cause. Through their community, they grow stronger, and their song grows louder, and they say that Desna herself protects them from the agents of the twisted god of agony.Good does not fight evil by its mere existence, and most of the gods of good teach that their worshipers must take active roles in preventing the spread of corruption in the mortal world.
The feats detailed below are not necessarily unique to the followers of these gods, but appear far more commonly among the congregations ofthese gods.
Rank 10 - Nivå 6
Templer og Helligdommer, Rank 10
Temples in large cities take the form of tall towers with observatories at their tops and house small libraries of astronomical and astrological charts. Rural temples usually incorporate an inn or stable as a service to travelers, and Desna’s presence is common in good communal temples. Butterf lies and moths congregate at her holy sites, producing silk and devouring thieves’ clothing.
