QB Kellhus throwing a Hail Mary for the salvation of Earwa.  Totally see it.

Is she really the oldest and most powerful of the Hundred? Where did that come from?

I'm pretty sure it was stated in the books.  I'll look for a reference.

Edit:  in WLW, when psatma is arguing with Meppa after the fall of Iothia, she States that Yatwer is the most powerful of all the Hundred.  Later, before Esmi confronts Maitha just before he bites it, Esmi is looking at a bunch of idols of the gods, Yatwer among them, and ruminates they are the oldest of the gods.  I think there's another reference stating she's the oldest.  There was another bit where it was said that even her brother Gilgaol feared her.

All true things. I don't know if she is listed in the appendix as such, but there are at least a couple  in-text referances of her being one of the first, if not the first, and certainly one of the most powerful (because she is the god of the lower castes, and there are a ton of disenfranchised peoples in Earwa).

Ohhh yes I like this (and the one of Yatwer). The style is awesome. Do more! How about Gilgaol, or the one that Inrau prays too before be dies (the stick/tree lady).

Ask and ye shall receive. lol  Just finished Gilgaol.  I hope to do all the twelve (I think?) gods specifically mentioned in the TTT appendix.  We'll see how it goes.

Yessss. Thanks!

I might have to make compilation of all of them and make them the background of my computer monitors.

Good lord, those renderings of the Gods are fucking phenomenal man. Absolutely brilliant. I think they may be my favorites of your work aside from the Captain and Cishaurim.
