At the dawn of time, no matter what any one person believes, there was a large creation of some sort. This creation spawned forth the Grand Deity, a being of immense power, presence, and mind. This Grand Deity watched over the creation of the Earth, and all on it. From It came the Gods and Goddesses of Mythos, from all cultures and societies. There are multiple tiers of Deities, all with laws that cannot be broken as per the Grand Deity’s orders. It should be known that the Grand Deity holds no love, yet no hate for humanity. It sees them as a species that can grow and evolve, and allows the Deities to intervene, but does not intervene itself.
Notable Deiy Locations Edit
- Really most "Afterlives" and alternate "Realms"
- Explain how these are sealed off Dimensions held by that Deity
-This section as a whole to describe how the Dimensions work and where Deities typically reside.
- Splitting Deities up into 2 types, Creatus and Terratus, with both split-up into sub-types. Likely 3 for each, or that's the maximum. For Creatus, warp what's there already a bit. Terratus,split it up between like, I dunno, Physical, Magical, and Abilities.
Deities in the “Creatus” tier are the most powerful right below the Grand Deity. They are the world creators of Mythos, the ones that allegedly created everything. These beings are allowed to observe humans, but cannot intervene in any of their actions, or even speak to them.
Examples: Ouranos, Gaea, Amun-Ra, Shiva, Vishnu, Brahma
These Deities are still very powerful, but not as powerful as Creatus. They are the ones that immortalize more aspects of the world in humanity’s mind, and sometimes in truth. They are allowed to intervene in human affairs, but only in very, very obscure manners, i.e. crop circles, mystical writing, strange tomes.
Examples: Chronos, Osiris, Isis, Odin
These Deities are the ones most commonly known by man, the ones that have graced the story books the most. They are the ones that are allowed to interact with humans, talk to them, change their histories through help. They are also allowed to “sponsor” humans, as in, give them powers beyond normal humanity, for a price determined by the Deity (there must always be a price equal to or greater than the power). However, they are not allowed to directly interfere in human affairs. For that, there are the Terratus.
These Deities can be included in backstories, but not be used as characters.
Examples: Zeus, Hades, Poseidon, Loki, Thor, Horus
So named due to their exclusive ability to remain on Terra for as long as desired, the Terratus Deities are those of the weakest tier, but are allowed to directly interfere in mortal affairs, and tend to be children of Servatus. They can have human partners or companions, and some are simply humans with Deity blood in their veins. They are the great heroes of legend, those that tore down walls bare-handed, or beings that personify aspects of human life and culture. While the ones that were human are believed to have passed away, more than likely they have been living with a Deity from the Servatus tier.
This is the only tier that users can make characters from.
Examples: Gilgamesh, Muses, Heracles, Perseus, Arthur Pendragon, Beowulf
- Placeholder for later Terratus branch-offs.
Inherent Abilties Edit
Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis needs major definitions. Hardcore.
Saying "X" is gotten from "X" divine parent gets rather loose. But eh. System for now.
