Random God Names: Is Hesset from Leibers stories?

Post by ragartan »

Hi Lankhmar fans,

for all the Random Gods from Table 1-13 in the City of the Black Toga I find references in Leibers stories, except Hesset. Is this a truly random name or does anyone happen to know more about it?

Kind Regards,
Alexander

Hisvet let up Threesie's head to breathe. “Lovely,” she told her. “Your scream came down my throat. It tasted like divine spice.” Then, “Excellent, Foursie,” she called. “Stay on your toes, girl."

Threesie cried, “Hesset help me,” invoking the Lankhmar moon goddess. “Make her stop, demoiselle, I'll do anything."

Hisvet said, “Hush, girl. Hesset give you courage,” and pulled down her head again, stifling her cries against her waiting lips. Her other hand pressed back on the maid's knees.

Thank you very much. Turns out the english bundle here in Germany contains only the first six books. So I had no Knight and Knaves to check - yet ;-)
