The stance of the moon has multiple meanings, this is already known by many. But now I will add a bit of details to the whole thing.

I got this from a friend. I had to edit it a little bit, since it is mostly focused on packs and such. So I made it more of an all-round thing, since that felt more correct.


Ragabash born under the New Moon. His role is the Trickster and Questioner of the Old-Ways.
Their role is the trickster, imparting lessons through their pranks, pranks that can be far from pleasant. Just as important is their ability to act as a voice of dissent or devil's advocate with far less fear of punishment. a free-thinking individual with the right to speak his or her mind is absolutely important, whether to encourage change or to reaffirm the current position through the challenges he or she provides. Those of the new moon are often skilled scouts or assassins, as the "hidden moon" is associated with stealth and secrecy. Ragabash's duty is to to provide a contrasting view. They may also use humor to lighten the mood or break up arguments, often acting as an "omega" to turn hostilities toward themselves.

Ragabash of the waxing moon (that is, the day after the new moon) are said to be more cheerful and light-hearted than their brethren and are more apt to use humor. Those of the waning moon (24 hours before the new moon) are supposedly a darker sort, more obsessed with the shadows, secrets, and doom. They are also said to pull ruthless, vicious pranks and use a more biting sense of humor.


Theurge when there is only a small portion of the moon visible. He is the Shaman.

they are conduits for the spirits, explorers of the Umbra, seers and oracles. They are often intuitive, mysterious, secretive, and seemingly illogical, for they adhere to the ways of the spirits. Their mind may sometimes be too deep in the realm of the spirit, and their friends often have to ground them back in reality - Theurges are not considered to be very "practical". They are guides and sources of wisdom, the enactor of rites, and often must play at being a medic as well.

Theurges of the waxing moon are considered to interact with the spirits in a more more open, charismatic manner - they often form friendships with the spirits they serve or command. Comparitively, those of the waning moon supposedly are a darker lot, and consider spirits things to be bound, dominated, and unleashed.


Philodox the Half-Moon are Judges and Mediators. They usually are the leaders in time of peace.

it is their duty to mediate, counsel, and keep within them a balance between the conflicting elements. They are also keepers of the law, they are also judges and of great importance in discerning the truth and making important decisions. They are considered leaders (although most often leaders during times of peace), and tend to carry a sense of authority about them.

Philodox of the Waxing Moon are considered to be particularly calm and fair, and supposedly make better arbitrators. Those of the Waning Moon are thought to be perfectionists and more nervous than their waxing kin, and are associated more with maintaining order and balance.


Galliard. The ones who are born when the moon is Gibbous are the so-called Bards and Keepers of ancient Lore, who know of all the ancient legends and songs.

Their task is to preserve the legends, prophecies, and history, a truly sacred responsibility in an ancient society that stresses oral history and performance. Besides acting as lorekeepers, historians and prophets, they are also depended upon to act as a source of inspiration in times of desperate need, or for celebration in those rare and wonderful times of fortune. Those born under the gibbous moon are considered the most social and thus are used as emissaries. the responsibilities of a Galliard include stirring the emotions and energies of his or her friends. Providing a walking fount of knowledge.

Galliards of the Waxing Moon are said to have a more positive outlook and sing inspiring songs of victory and celebration. Those of the Waning Moon are said to be more dour individuals, singing songs and predictions of doom and sacrifice. The fire stirring within them is a dark and devouring one, rather than the white-hot flame of the waxing moon.


Ahroun. The Full Moon represents the war aspect of Luna (the Moon) and are the most fierce Warriors. They usually step into leadership during war-time.

In a sense their nature is a simpler one, as their task is a clear and narrowly defined one. They may act as soldiers or grunts, or war leaders, but universally their claws are soaked in blood and they are the ones to act first when a battle is at hand. Their affinity for warfare is not merely in their Rage, rather it is also in their instincts and their mind. They are innately suited to war including tactics and strategy - a good warrior is not just one who fights well, but 'effectively'.

Ahroun of the waxing moon (that is, the night before the true full moon) are considered more straightforward and a more fervent seeker of Glory; those of the waning moon are considered to be more concerned with asserting dominance.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
