It is indeed very nice to speak to all of you again. I will be writing something a little bit more in depth about the local mytholigies and their linkages with the current CDR connections. Such as which deities and spirits are most like our Roman ones, which are truly unique in the province of Pacifica.
To follow up with my questions of spirits of place I have done some research. The Willamatte River does not have a specific deity or spirit associated with it as far as the local native groups go. The name of the river comes from the name of the valley that the river flows through. The native groups called the Willamatte Valley, the 'Valley of Death' due to the high concentrations of grasses and other plants. Most native groups did not live full time in the valley proper due to the high pollen content during some seasons that would make many sick.
This does lead to a very facinating question. If there is a spirit or god associated with the river, could it perhaps be one of the spirits or gods that guard the underworld considering the native nomenclature of the valley itself?
It is possible. And places that brought death to others mysteriously tended to be connected with the Underworld. But there is no way to be sure. I'd suggest you ask an augur to take auspices on the matter. To see if this God would like to be represented as connected with death.[/quote]Numerius Antonius Paullus wrote:
