The Yayamama Pantheon

Postby Juan Echo » Wed May 02, 2018 8:25 pm

HISTORY
The Yayamama star system was first colonized sometime over 20,000 years ago. The specifics have since been lost to the ages, but what is known is that the deities known as the Yayamama Pantheon first arrived to the region with a group of followers from some unknown location. The Yayamama claim to have been powerful gods on their original home planet but were forced into exile due to unexplained circumstances. Yayamama deities and their worshipers alike will often reference this ancestral homeland in speech, but this seems to be little more than a superficial tic.
The Yayamama are decidedly uncurious about their past and actually consider ignorance on their history a point of pride. The name and location of their homeland has long been forgotten. The only time this history is discussed with any, albeit still very little, substance is to justify the constant conflict between the occupants between rival planets Yaya and Mama. This war has dominated Yayamama culture since the system was first colonized. The occupants of Yaya blame their exile on the occupants of Mama, and the occupants of Mama say that the occupants of Yaya dragged them away from their homeland. It is hard to know what the truth is, as no one in the Yayamama pantheon is old enough to have been from that homeland.
While most gods tend to live for tens of thousands of years, the lifespan of the average Yayamama deity is much shorter. The oldest Yayamama is over 10,000 years old; the average age of members of the 6th generation of Yayamama is 3,000 years old. Most Yayamama die when they are captured by opposing forces and publicly executed by being sawed in half.
War defines the Yayamama star system and conflict between the two planets is sporadic and often directly caused by disputes over to resources in the outer rim of the star system. Battles usually occur at preordained locations and consist of a few deities and their attendant worshippers. Raids on interstellar vessels are also frequent, even on non-Yayamama vessels that are just passing through the system. Direct attacks on Yaya and Mama are unheard of, however.
The Yayamama has had little contact with people from other star systems. The star system is not particularly resource rich and thus not visited extensively by space explorers or miners. Several different species associated with the UWW, including more than one pantheon, have made contact with the Yayamama over the millennium. These encounters have led the UWW to conclude that contact with the Yayamama is best left at minimal.
At the same time, the asteroid belt and outer rim planets provide enough resources to sustain the star system. The Yayamama themselves have little reason to leave the star system except for when they want new space ships, weapons, or luxury items. In order to pay for these things, the deities do mercenary work, often as enforcers, smugglers, and thieves. As a result, the Yayamama have earned a reputation, among the few that know of them, as low rank backwater hoodlum deities.
PLANETS
The Yayamama star system consists four planets and an asteroid belt surrounding a white dwarf. Two planets – Yaya and Mama – form a kind of binary planet system in which they are on opposite ends of the same orbital path. Just beyond the orbit of the two planets is an asteroid belt that contains small quantities of rare minerals. Outside the asteroid belt are the two gas giants – Awki and Urmi – that are rich in noble gases.
Yaya
Yaya is one of two planets that is occupied within the Yayamama system. The planet is covered with large craggy mountain ranges and has no large bodies of water. Each mountain range is dominated by one peak that is over 50,000 feet above sea level. These peaks are considered sacred and serve as the homes for the deities that live on Yaya. Most water found on the surface comes either from geysers or natural volcanic springs that are found in the mountain ranges.
Settlements on Yaya form around these water sources, and consist of no more than 5,000 mortal individuals and are often smaller. Although space travel is possible and there is access to advanced technology, most settlements have not really developed beyond the early Industrial Age. Every settlement in a mountain range is devoted to the worship of the deity that resides in the highest peak
Mama
Unlike its sibling planet, Mama is almost completely covered in water. The planetary ocean is dotted with a number of small volcanic atolls that group in long thin archipelagos. Most mortals live on the atolls in small villages, less than 500 people. The archipelagos serve as contiguous communities, and travel between archipelagos is limited.
Below each archipelago there is a large biodome on the ocean floor; these structures are far more technologically advanced than anything seen above the water. Spaceships actually launch from underwater. Each biodome is ruled by a deity that serves as the patron saint of the archipelago above.
Asteroid Belt
The asteroid belt separates Yaya and Mama from the gas giants Awki and Urmi. The asteroids contain heavy metals that are useful in the production of spaceships and other advanced technology that the Yayamama deities enjoy. Both planets have established one permanent outpost in the asteroid belt that serves as the staging point for mining operations. Occasionally disputes over mining rights on asteroids will escalate to interplanetary conflict.
Awki and Urmi
Like the asteroid belt, the two gas giants are mined for resources. Both the Yaya and the Mama send ships on expeditions to mine the planets of rare gasses. Occasionally these ships will engage each other eventually leading to interplanetary conflict.
Social Structure
The Yayamama are divided into three “races”: the Yaya, the Mama, and the Uqros. The Yaya and Mama are the deities that occupy their respective planets, while the Urqos is a catchall term for the mortals on both planets that worship the Yayamama pantheon.
The Yaya and Mama both come from the same species. Deities are born as a set of male and female twins. The two are given near identical names maintain a close relationship through life. When in close proximity two each other, twins will often speak and think in unison, forming something akin to a hivemind. Marriage is usually between two sets of twins not individuals, although exceptions are common. Children born from this type of union take their own surname.
Adult Yayamama are between 8 and 10 feet tall and have a hard (often described as either rocky or glassy) skin that ranges from purple to light orange. They have black hair and their eyes have no irises or pupils. The Yaya are larger, averaging over 9 feet, with skin that ranges from orange to dark red. The Mama are shorter, more robust, with skin that is pink to dark purple; some Mama are born completely hairless.
The Yayamama are the rare set of deities that do not oppose cybernetic augmentations; these are primarily cosmetic (such as metal horns or wings) so that the Yayamama may look ‘more divine’ to their worshipers. The repeated attempts to incorporate practical augmentations have always ended poorly. The Mama deity Mero Los, having lost his left eye in combat, thought he would fare better with a cybernetic eye with laser sight, which exploded to fatal effect when his actual eye regenerated.
Despite these similarities, it would be a dangerous mistake to use the same term to describe the Yaya and the Mama. The two groups consider themselves very different despite having parallel social structures.
The Yaya are a patrilineal group broken up into a series of yuls or houses. Yuls consist of several sets of twin deities that are loosely related; the oldest male in the yul typically serves as its leader. Within a mountain range the male twin is principle object of worship by mortals and is the lord of every community. His sister is worshiped as a lesser deity and serves as his aide. It is a thankless role. Even after marriage the twins will spend more time together than with their respective spouses. Children stay with their father and his twin. The yuls are often fighting with each other, and inter-yul civil wars are not unheard of. However, because war with the Mama is considered the highest priority Yaya are not killed during these conflicts. Instead, these wars serve as practice for the greater fight.
The Mama are matrilineal and governed by the eldest female on the planet. The Great Mother, as she is known, is not the supreme leader but the first among equals. Each archipelago on the planet worships the female deity that rules the biodome below as their patron saint, while her twin serves as a protector spirit riding the waves and impregnating female mortals that live on the islands above.
Worshipers are called Urqos, a term that is used to describe all mortals, whether or not they do make regular sacrifices to the Yayamama. The deities have not noticed whether or not the Urqos consist of one or several species. Whether or not this is due to indifference or an inability to recognize lesser beings is unknown. In the eyes of the Yayamama all are Urqos and therefore inferior.
The Yayamama language is unique in the Three Galaxies, and many non-native speakers have difficulty learning it. This may be because the language relies heavily on aspirated consonants, and as a result only uses four vowel sounds. In lieu of vowels, the Yayamama employ clicks. This means that native Yayamama speakers have a natural affinity for Trade 5 and vice versa. In structure, the language is similar to Trade 4, however with a very limited vocabulary of descriptors (adjectives, adverbs, etc.) and a number of agglutinated words. Not surprisingly, the occupants of Yaya and Mama speak eponymous dialects. In theory the dialects should be mutually intelligible, differing only on some slang terms and the use of clicks. However, many on Yaya refuse to acknowledge that they understand when someone from Mama speaks and vice versa.

“Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth,” the Wanderer said to himself as he walked between the metal drums that lined the walkway of the festival, “I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.”
He had read those words carved on the hull of a spaceship that he had travelled on almost one thousand years ago on what was then third expedition out of his native star system. He had enjoyed the trip as much as earlier trips up until the ship was destroyed in a battle with pirates. Weeks later, a salvage team found him clinging to a piece of the hull near death. It had been the second closest he had been to dying, but it had given his life meaning.
The drums glowed with charcoal that slowly roasted haunches of meat, which had come from the last animals in the menagerie, some sort of antelope. The Urqos had prepared it with a rub of huacatay, acid fruit, chilis and vinegar that complemented the grassy taste of the meat. The Wanderer filled his plate with mashed roots and fried greens and went up to his sister’s perch above the plaza.
From there, the two of them could watch the feast below. They sat in silence, near identical large figures cross-legged. Their long hair was tossed over their right shoulder, the sister’s hair in a tight braid and the brother’s loose. They looked as if cut from stone, watching the Urqos enjoy their feast below; a few people picked at the last pieces of grilled meat, adults drank warm beer, and children played with balls made from animal sacs. It was an idyllic afternoon on the Chirpa plateau.
This was all in honor of the Wanderer. He was one of the most beloved of the Yaya, the protector of travelers, and the avatar of hospitality. He had blessed the Urqos with his presence for five glorious months, but now it was time for him to leave again. The words he had found on a piece of debris floating in space articulated his purpose better than throngs of worshipers below, and they had become a prayer he intoned to himself.
“You shouldn’t leave,” the sister said to the brother.
I’m not leaving. I am just going on another expedition
“I don’t care about what you call it. You’re out having fun when we need you here.”
You are a better caretaker of our people than I can ever be, beloved sister. I’m better off out traveling the stars.
“Lo-La are going to be pissed with you gone,” the sister said pointing to a sinister to peak to the north.
Lo is always pissed at me. And La will be happier when I get out of the star system.
“Jonny! At least take a proper spaceship this time! Take some Urqos to serve as your crew.”
You know I’m going to travel in my little life raft because-
“Oh, who am I kidding; that’s boring. If you’re going to go on an adventure you have to make it a bit of a challenge. Just make sure to send us some more nice fatty animals for the menagerie. And no more cats, they taste like ass.”
The Wanderer rose up and embraced his sister, emitting a bright light, that shone like a second sun hovering over the late afternoon. Take my blessing, so it protects you wherever you go. And really don't send anymore cats.
"I love you too, sis." The Wander looked down on his worshipers and said "My people, it has been awesome fun being praised by you. Now, I must go and travel the starts so that every Urqos in the three galaxies knows how awesome we are. I will have lots of fun adventures, and I'll send you more animals to continue the party without me!"
The Urqos below cheered and continued to celebrate until there was no food left in the plaza, and the last sac ball had been deflated.
The following morning he started the lonely hike up the peak of the tallest mountain in Chripa, where the rocket had been set. On top of it was a small pod with minimal life support systems, a sophisticated comms array, and an FTL drive. The rocket would launch him outside of star system, and the pod had enough fuel to take him to his destination, wherever that would be. The ship didn’t have or need a navigation system, it just needed to roam.
