|Sliver of the Unfulfilled|
|A manifestation of unfulfilled desire|
The priests and priestesses of Derketo are well trained in the skills of pleasure and pain. They walk their congregations down an exquisite line between release and ecstasy, and their sweat-filled temples are filled with the moans and exultations of those who know the touch of the goddess.
Such pleasure, both fulfilled and unfulfilled, leaves a physical residue. The worshippers of Derketo offer it up to their goddess as proof that her bidding is being done on this earth.
