Description: A very popular god, Surnest is worshiped by the large majority of Surenashi and virtually anyone who travels for a living or simply as a way of life. He has numerous avatars wandering Panisadore since he is often off gallivanting on other planes himself. Eternally and irrepressibly cheerful, he is undoubtedly the greatest storyteller in existence and is credited with composing most of the various creation and other divine myths – especially those which contradict each other and any which cast Rimilnix in a humorous light. (He denies composing the latter, declaring that Rimilnix makes it just too easy to be worth his talent.) While he and Rimilnix are constantly antagonizing each other, (so much so that Delatrian and Benaedrass have often had to intervene,) their antipathy does not extend to the activities of their respective churches. Members of the Rumour-Mongers Guild serve as town criers and essentially the news service in semi-literate societies. As such His clerics all have Perform: storytelling as a class skill.
