The Powers of Waincraft

The Powers are the Archetypal Ideas that underlie the very fabric of existence. Most of them embody or represent a specific piece of the physical world/cosmos (e.g., Night is the darkness that was before and birthed all things, but she is also present in and represented by the literal starry night sky), or a notable time of year/day (e.g., Renewal is representative of and represented by the forces of renewal present in both dawn and spring). Some are both (e.g., Winter is represented by both snow-storms and the season of winter itself).
