The World Tree (Samoa branch)

The World Tree was formed from the spine of Na Atibu — a God who really put his back into getting things going.

All went well until someone in the upper branches did a number two on someone in the lower branches. Since then the World Tree has been shaking, crashing, and swaying, with torn-off branches used as weapons.
