Jinushigami,1 or land kami,2 are the most powerful and respected of the kami, and are the guardians of significant natural wonders such as mountains, lakes, or forests.3

In the Great Beyond

The jinushigami Severed Root, whose original ward was lost alongside its entire material world to an unknown cataclysm, is believed to be the founder of Basrakal, a city within the Maelstrom home to outsiders who reject their alignments and their place in planar society.4
