Return to the Keep on the Borderlands
Yoda, the Mysterious Sage – “Looking? Found someone you have I would say, mm?”
“If no mistake have you made, yet losing you are … a different game you should play.”
“You think Yoda stops teaching, just because his student does not want to hear? Yoda a teacher is. Yoda teaches like drunkards drink. Like killers kill.”
Yoda is easily one of the more contrary gods of the pantheon. He gives the impression of being an ancient being, one who has seen the world and and learned much from it, but now doesn’t really care. That is an act. Yoda will play the ancient sage role, or the bumbling old man, or whatever is necessary to teach the student he has taken at the time. Surprisingly, Yoda has great affections for children, often spending a lot of his time training a young being, with no reward being evident for decades.
He usually appears as a stooped figure, green, with large ears and wearing a cloak. A gnarled walking stick is always seen in his hands, though it is believed that the stick is more often used to correct mistakes, instead of helping him walk.
Yoda is usually a nonviolent and quiet god, but when he is needed, his skills in combat are well remembered by those that face him, if they survive. He has good relations with most of the rest of the pantheon, but he will always work to overthrow any of Vecna’s plots he uncovers.
