I never liked that spec, I always preferred my wererat thieves to use melee dagger.

So if you want to get noticed by Cybele you either offend her(Urgu) or ignore her completely and get wasted at the party she's hosting... good things to know about 'the virgin goddess.'

Didn’t she also curse the Elken for going to far into the forest?  She’s basically got a thing for making beast men or man beast, depending on origin.  

Tldr; she likes furries.

"D’Orion, then, was the greatest of sinners, for with each passing year he ranged further afield in search of more exotic and dangerous prey. One day he wandered too deep into Gaea’s wood, and Gaea cursed him for her displeasure, transforming him from a man into a beast – a beast that other men would find irresistible to kill.

Yet D’Orion, the greatest hunter, proved to be elusive prey. For a hundred years, hunters came and hunters perished in that wood. No man proved to be his better. Eventually, Gaea’s heart softened and where once was there was anger, pride blossomed. D’Orion was not a rival; he was her great creation. She named him Son and gave him the gift of divinity. She offered him a seat at the table of the gods and had Kane fashion for him a winged chariot so that he could hunt the beasts of the sky.

Thus are born the Elken. Gaea’s curse still hangs over the deepest of forest; any hunter who ranges too far deep risks losing himself – and is reborn, with hooves and horns."

Apparently so.
Also:

Quote

 

14On the twenty-second day, there appeared among the gaiety a wild goat, a cow, and a turkey. 15They passed into the throng of revelers and 16were welcomed with the glee and encouragement afforded old friends.

41And on this day, the longest gloaming in Summertide, our friend the Satyr gained his voice.  We mark this as the Day of Reverie, 42which our Lady would have us celebrate yearly with a feast of wine, steak, and breast of roast fowl.

 

So basically she kissed the goat and feasted on the cow and the turkey.
The moral of the story is that ignoring the obvious hottie and free-loading at her party is the best strategy to pick up girls. And not to be eaten. Apparently works in the Crowfall universe as well.

And JTodd dideth write the prose of Crowfall across the firmament of the Dregs, The Shadows, and Gods Reach.

Such did the twin dragons roil and roar as to maketh the hunger swirl and recede,

And lo JRR Tolkien's spirit rejoiced, tho William Shakespeare wept tears of jealousy, and George RR Martin got busy, to finish the damn books, after pushing a sucketh prequel on his fans.

No

Cybele (Maiden), Gaia (young adult?), and Yaga (Crone) are the triple goddess in CF pantheon.

The exact nature of their personage is a mystery until JTC clarifies, but Christians, at least, are used to this.

We're all different people at different times in our lives.

IMO Yaga seems like a better fit for order, and Cybele is definitely chaotic. It's not too late to switch them, ACE.

Added Suggestion.

I think the K-Mart of MMO's already exists!  And it ain't us!   :)

Gaea is the ...  lore-quote: "Mother of Cybele and daughter of Yaga, she embodies the middle aspect of the Trinity Goddess (the virgin, the matron and the crone)."

I'd say that's clarifying well enough.

As for chaos and order ... they are not about chaos and order. Order is the faction that tries to get rid of the hunger by fighting it back, while chaos is the faction that tries to get rid of it by feeding worlds to it. Yaga as " the embodiment of how-things-work, the underpinnings of reality" would know that not feeding hunger would only cause hunger to grow. While Cybele would be naive enough to just say "no" and believe her not wanting the hunger to exist, because it kills her lovely beings, would be enough to fight it back.

If something should be changed, it should be the terms of chaos and order, because they are misleading (and have been so from the start).
