Ye'Cind is the elven and Oerthian Hero-God of music, enchantment, and magick.

History[edit]

Ye'Cind was once a wandering bard and skilled wizard, composing and playing songs about his homeland wherever he went, becoming a bard of great renown. As he visited a small kingdom during his travels, he witnessed the kings murder at an unknown assailants hands. The bard then left on a journey to create an item that would allow him to reveal truths more easily, creating the Recorder of Ye'Cind. Two decades later, he returned to the kingdom and played in a festival in front of the king. As he played his recorder, a vision of the current king standing in front of his brother's corpse appeared. The guards took the king away, and Ye'Cind smiled at this.

Eventually, his renown reached to the Seldarine, with the gods asking him to play in Corellon's court. Ye'Cind played flawlessly there, and as thanks, Corellon raised the minstrel to godhood.

Dogma[edit]

Music is a mirror of patterns and energy of the universe. The rush of a waterfall, wind through the trees, the crackle of a fire, and the thunder of an avalanche are all parts of the world's music. It transcends language and race, promoting understanding or inspiring the rage of vengeance. Enhanced by magic, a song can alter the world or change the course of history, and tying music and magic together creates something more powerful and fundamental than either alone.

Creative Origins[edit]

Ye'Cind harkens back to Tolkien's Ilúvatar, who created the multiverse via music. D&D godfather Gary Gygax derived the name Ye'Cind from the name of one of his daughters, Cindy. (The name Cindy is itself a diminutive of an epithet of the Greek moon goddess Selene.)
