Wishes

Wishes are a fascinating phenomenon.

Inside of many things — most things? Possibly. Definitely not all things — there lives a Wishing Heart. It is that thing, that quality, which a thing must have to make the Impossible into the Possible.

And sometimes, that's all you need. You fire up your Miraculous Wish-Granting Engine and you put your Desires into the world and that which you would have wrought is wrought. But that's not always the way of it. That's not even usually the way of it.

There are, in this world, Wish Spirits. Little knots of Desire, loosed into the world to make a mark. Once, the world was full of Wishes, and they dwelled among the branches of the World Tree like Christmas lights for the entire universe. But when the Sun fell and the World Tree burned, the Wishes were loosed and lost. They became tangled in the world, wrapped up in Maya; they lost their harmony.

In their natural harmonious forms, Wishes are usually adorable critters whose forms and abilities are suited to the hopes they represent. Inharmonious wishes are dangerous things. Beings of unbridled and unfulfilled desire incarnate, they manifest as demons, as ogres, as monsters, polluted by the impure essences of this fallen world.

The Wishing Sapling

Atop the Yggdrasil Arms, a new World Tree has sprouted, a sapling whose bows are hardly wide enough to hold even a very small world. It is being tended and protected. And even now, the Wishes have begun to find their way home.
