Arguably the most powerful, albeit distant, member of the Oerthian pantheon, this goddess spins the strands of Fate for gods and mortals alike.
Istus is especially venerated by the Bakluni, who have a habit of putting much store in determinism. It isn’t customary in any culture to try to influence Istus, as this is thought to be impossible. She is, however, sometimes petitioned for knowledge.
Her symbol is a golden spindle.
