On Avlis, dreams are thought closely linked to the moon and its cycles. This is true of most races and cultures.

Wilsash is the governor of these cycles. He controls the moon and the application of dreams. The exact way in which he goes about doing this is a mystery. There seems to be no pattern to the moon and the dreams one can have. Sometimes they coincide well. Sometimes they don't.

Only the mind of the god himself understands how and why they are linked. The people of the world are only able to pray to him and hope. Often they find themselves at his mercy. The priests of Wilsash all have theories on how the god governs the moon and nightmares together, and often they fight about this, forming factions. Some declare that the moon is needed for anyone to have any dreams at all. Others disagree and say that dreams can exist without the moon, but nightmares are dependent on its phases. Whatever the case, Wilsash is silent on the matter... as silent as the moon on a windless night. Some believe that he secretly revels in his church's infighting.

All that is known for sure is that Wilsash does indeed control both nightmares and the moon. Whether they go together or not, or they are separate (much like Arcane Knowledge and Trickery), it is uncertain.

Wilsash is known to be good friends with Xenon, god of lycanthropes. The two are often seen together, and their churches seem to get along well also.

A shrine to Wilsash can be found in Deglos, and a temple is in the wilds of southern Negaria.
