Sharvenatars the Summoner


Recommended Posts

Sharvenatars the Summoner [1108-1120] who summoned the True Golden Horde. He called forth the Dog Fathers and the Rising Stallions. He carried the Net of Jajagappa. He slew the Dragon Emperor and tore him apart in the Dragonkill. Because he was a descendant and true servant of Jajagappa that god came and cast his net into the maw of the dragon to preserve him from oblivion.

Is Sharvenatars the only human in the True Golden Horde to survive Dragonkill or were there numerous survivors whom cast DI to escape? There was a certain count that wasn't saved but he and his chard chariot were sent back to Sun County.

What is the net of Jaja and what are its powers? When and how was it made and for who, did Jaja steal it as Orlanth did many of his powers?

Who is Jaja anyway!?

That's a misreading of the text.  Sharvenatars did not survive - he died.  Jajagappa saved his soul from oblivion (not death).

Vast majority of the True Golden Horde died.  FS p.41 notes: "In 112,120 came The Disaster, also called Dragonkill. In this the dragons sprang a great trap which they had made to draw humans into their maw, and of the million men who went to war, only ten returned."  [The footnote notes that both of those are poetic numbers, but gives some sense of the scale of the disaster.]

I would not call it "numerous" survivors.  Let's just say a few made it home to report the disaster.  Sourcebook p.141 says: "Few humans escaped from this Pelorian disaster, called the Dragonkill for what the dragons did to all the humans in Dragon Pass, which brought new respect to the ancient races."

Jajagappa net binds the souls of the powerful dead to ensure they are taken to Hell.  Sourcebook p.160: "He has the ability to go and fight the souls of the powerful dead, and drag even great magicians to Death. His net is crowded with less powerful souls."  He may have been called upon to drag the Sun back to Hell during the Sunstop.

The cult members can use their nets to catch the souls of the dead.

The net is always associated with Jajagappa - it's a tool/weapon of the Underworld.  It may have been given to him by Subere, or he may have fashioned it.

An Underworld deity largely associated with the DH/Lunar pantheons.  See Sourcebook p.160 and Guide p.678.

In Orlanthi myth, Jajagappa is considered one of the Bad Dogs (and is dog-headed in all depictions) - but Jajagappa is NOT the Dog God.
