Zevtwill, God of Verbal Irony

(a.k.a. Master of Deception, The Great Gadfly)

Zevtwill is the God of Verbal Irony in the House of the Unexpected pantheon. The patron of philosophers, comedians, and other self-appointed gadflies, Zevtwill's influence is seen to be one of the "necessary evil" or "devil's advocate" in the cosmology of the Unexpector faith.

Divine Symbols & Sigils

Tenets of Faith

Unusually for a member of the House of the Unexpected, Zevtwill teaches his followers not to follow his teachings directly, as they all come from a place of deep satire, overstatement, or understatement. The "real" lessons that Zevtwill teaches are to not trust the stated intentions of smooth-talkers, hucksters, and quacks, and that the stated truth is a matter of subjective experience (as opposed to first-hand experience or reputable sources). The cult of Zevtwill employs reformed con artists, lawyers, and debaters to disabuse would-be supplicants of weakly-supported notions whenever possible; for the Master of Deception's children, smashing ignorance is tantamount to worship.
