Publication history[edit]

Jisan was introduced in the Al-Qadim: Land of Fate set (1992).[1]

Description[edit]

Jisan is the goddess of fruitfulness of Zakhara, who stands for fertility and productivity. She is one of the eight Great Gods of the Land of Fate and encourages hard work and diligent planning in order to harvest the riches of the world.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 50 Jisan's symbol is a rain cloud, a relic of her long-gone origins as a storm-goddess who provides the monsoon rains necessary for the fertility of the land.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 48, 50

There are no tales in which Jisan takes any physical form.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 50 Like other Zakharan gods she is above such concerns as alignment, as hard work may be put into an honest life or aim to subjugate others for personal gain.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 45

Jisan's faith is present in all parts of society, but is most prevalent among merchants. She is not worshipped in the Cities of the Pantheon, where her role is taken by the local goddess Jauhar.[1]:Adventurer's Guide to Zakhara, 50
