Astrological Signs for Fantasy Settings (Vanilla Version)

I was going through some old campaign notes of mine and stumbled across something I had worked on during a rather spiritual phase in my life: 12 astrological signs for my fantasy campaign with some rune-like symbols for inspiration. I totally forgot about it! Anyway, I'd like to share them ...

Spring

The Unicorn

Associated with:

     Brave/Stubborn
     Innocent/Naive





The Fey

Associated with:

     Bright/Childish
     Sly/Treacherous






The Dryad

Associated with:

     Passionate/Jealous
     Caring/Possessive






Summer


The Bear

Associated with:

     Kind/Frivolous
     Contentment/Laziness





The Horse

Associated with:

     Persistent/Petty
     Confident/Arrogant




The Eagle

Associated with:

     Proud/Condescending
     Focused/Relentless






Autumn


The Fox

Associated with:

     Smart/Smug
     Charismatic/Manipulative





The Cat

Associated with:

     Curious/Careless
     Independent/Selfish





The Rat

Associated with:

     Social/Obedient
     Honest/Malicious






Winter


The Dragon

Associated with:

     Eager/Greedy
     Strong/Dominant





The Raven

     Spiritual/Unworldly
     Enigmatic/Neurotic






The Wolf

     Loyal/Misguided
     Fierce/Cruel






There'll be more and I guess the descriptions need some work, but this is what I got so far ...

How to use this, if at all, is totally up to the DM. It might be used to give NPCs some direction and players some inspiration for their characters. Or just as a local believe. Even using it just as a calendar is possible.

I'll whip up a download in the near future.

  2. Cool, always a fan of runes and have been wanting to work a bit more astrology into my campaign but didn't want to use traditional astrology. Might yoink whole cloth, might just use for inspiration, thanks for sharing.
