Pantheon ListEdit

Arcazin is ruled by a variety of Gods, each unique and oversee their individual domains.

Gods of Arcazin

~Author's Note: The Pantheon List below is sorted alphabetically A-Z, and not sorted by power or rank. This is also still under construction as new gods are added.

==

Aeslyn, Goddess of TribulationEdit

==

Chaotic Evil

Phineas' twin sister, also known as the Bad Luck god, Aeslyn has a pleasantly sunny disposition to all she interacts with, masking the ill intent she has in store for her would-be victim. Like Phineas, she commands the domain of luck and trickery, but not for the benefit of mortals, but rather her own amusement. Where Phineas may bestow a deed of farmland for a downtrodden but faithful mortal, Aeslyn will cause the lands to be infertile or summon foxes to devour livestock. If a mortal has the misfortune of earning Aeslyn's mischievous gaze they best pray extra fervently to Phineas for divine intervention.

Sub Deities

Neywit, Mistress of Misfortune

Gairlat, Master of Balk

Saralyn, Apocryphal Demoness

Rozereg, Marquis of Doubt

Xug, the Spiteful, Pet/Servant of Aeslyn


-------------------------------------------

==

Aurelia, Goddess of RebirthEdit

==


Neutral Good

She appears in an ethereal form of a forgotten race that once lived on Arcazin when mortalkind could barely craft a tool. Her tie to all of the living things on this realm resonates within and fuels her resolve. Individuals true of intent and passion: those who stand for the betterment of all kind, have been graced with her presence during their time of need. She graciously exemplifies the hope of all mortals and carries her charge with optimistic and selfless fervor.  According to a weathered scroll of legend, devoted followers of Aurelia documented their experience of witnessing a miracle:  "A blight-stricken waste restored to a teaming field of grass and grains within a momen'ts passing.  Our faith is hers. And she will decree: What good was lost, will become again." - Prophet Methusan


Sub Deities

- Ashya, the Dryad Queen

- Febu, Denmother of Satyrs

- Heartwood, Patriarch of the Root Council

- Nira, Blesser of the Seed

-------------------------------------------

==

Clefeb, God of MusicEdit

==


Neutral

From the strumming of a lute, to the chirp of a songbird, or wind rustling the leaves of a tree, Clefeb is present in almost all occasions. Many neglect his power to sway and influence mortalkind, as he can bring joy as quickly as he can sorrow. His physical presence is that of a man with 3 faces circling the head and can manifest any amount of arms required to play the instruments he manifests at whim to play a song.

-------------------------------------------

==

Eloka, Goddess of the EquinoxEdit

==

Neutral

There was once a time of constant sunshine and pleasant weather where Eloka sat alone in her throne, maintaining pleasant weather for mortalkind. Eventually Eloka became lonely and longed for companionship. She convinced Mehtu'fn to visit her above Arcazin, so that Mehtu'fn may look and take in the majesty of his creation, Arcazin. Mehtu'fn was so grateful of the opportunity that he spent a night with her in the stars and gave her a gift of four daughters. Mehtu'fn couldn't stay and had to return to his forge, but promised he would return one day. Eloka, stricken with sadness, no longer had interest in sitting in her throne, and instead allows her daughters to take turns sitting in her throne, while she sleeps, awaiting for Mehtu'fn's return. 

Sub Deities

- Keka, Spirit of Summer

- Vetra, Spirit of Winter

- Peka, Spirit of Spring

- Bitra, Spirit of Fall
-------------------------------------------

==

Exos, God of the EtherEdit

==

Neutral

The Ethereal plane is a place where all mortals go when they rest their heads. They reside in the safety of Exos' courtyard, Reverie, where they are free to dream without true repercussions. Beyond Reverie, however, roam creatures of the ethereal plane, as well as pathways to astral weylines, paths to different planes of existence. Exos once tried to prevent mortalkind from abusing his realm for the purpose of travel, but now the Ether has a tear, it is taking all of Exos' focus to keep the indigenous denizens of the ethereal plane in.


Sub Deities

- Booman, the Dream Demon

- Waywinds, Guiding Dust of the Ether

- Cadalman, the Bringer of Rest

-------------------------------------------

==

Hinra, Goddess of WarEdit

==


Lawful Neutral  

Mortals know little in comparison to the gods, but if there is one thing they do well it is to disagree and respond with violent volition.  It is documented in millennia-old texts that Hinra may appear during a pivotal battle with the favored faction in a large headdress of animal horns/antlers/feathers spattered with blood. Upon proper communion and prayer, Hinra will indirectly assist a warring party, or inspire an individual soldier via divine means to do more in the battle than any ever thought possible.  



Sub Deities

- Lothor, Demigod of Honor

- Dathen, Demigod of Stratagems

- Almera, Demigod of Duels

- Torr, Metalsmith of War

- Dyro, Demigod of Glory

-------------------------------------------
==

Io, God of PurityEdit

==

Lawful Good

Io is the embodiment of all that is good.  The forger of Light protects those true of spirit and constantly tries to guide those lost to the Dark back to its care.  Io is known to rarely interact with mortals directly as it mostly prefers indirect involvement such as divine intervention.  Temples of Io have statues depicting its form as a human-like figure with no detailed eyes, mouth, nose, nor any gender indicating features, with a sphere of light  hovering over its head.  The oldest standing Temple of Io has a library archive containing a large slab of cave wall with primitive drawings etched on it depicting a figure of blinding light hovering over a defeated dark figure.


Sub Deities

- The Archons, Angels of Anodos
-------------------------------------------

==

Ith, God of ShadowsEdit

==

Neutral

Little is known of Ith, though many religious scholars believe Ith to be the spawn of or result of a conflict between Io and Ur. Superstitions of commoners and nobles alike often attribute mortals disappearing in the night to Ith. Many argue that Ith simply does not exist, while others argue that Ith is always present as long as there is light in the world.


-------------------------------------------

==

Mehtu'fn, God of NatureEdit

==


Chaotic Neutral

Also known as the Crafter, Mehtu'fn cares not of law or chaos, good or evil.  Nature is a wild yet systematic causality.  Grand empires have fallen to a simple drought, heavy rains, godlike winds, or explosive volcanoes.  Mehtu'fn only sees to it that nature continues its flow of existing through dying, rebuilding, reshaping, and existing.  It is chronicled that Mehtu'fn understands the process of life and death as much as, if not better, than Nethe herself. (It is also chronicled that any mortal who stated that Mehtu'fn understands death better than Nethe succumbed to an unexpected death within 1 - 3 months of publication.).

Sub Deities

- Frn, Aspect of Fire

- Ehn, Aspect of Earth

- Mes, Aspect of Water

- Usn, Aspect of Air

- Kou, Aspect of Cold

-------------------------------------------

==

Nethe, Goddess of MortalityEdit

==


Lawful Neutral

All mortality comes to an end and Nethe oversees the process.  Other than her involvement of transitioning life to death she prefers the comfort of her underworld than meddling with mortal affairs.  Her secrets and knowledge of death are desired by many mortals and only few have had successful communion with her.  Confiscated books of necromancers have notes on the rituals attempted to commune with Nethe; A particular note explains explicitly the need for proper sacrifices and offerings, lest it not be enough and the necromancer meets with Nethe prematurely and has to face the Mirror of Appraisal earlier than fate planned for.


Sub Deities

- Taremin, Caretaker of the Dead

- Perithak, Chaperon of Souls

- Nerogh, Appraiser of Ethos

- Zaratoth, Collector of the Overdue


-------------------------------------------

==

Phineas, God of OpportunityEdit

==


Chaotic Good

Also referred to as the 'Luck God', Phineas is documented to excessively involve himself in mortal affairs. He never differs his form; long dark hair, tanned skin, a neat and trim vandyke donning his sharp chin, a constant smirk, and wearing fine linen garments.  Prophets of the pantheon have spoken of Phineas as the 'mouth' of the gods, due to his nature of insulting any and all that he blesses or curses and having an extremely sarcastic sense of humor. Phineas enjoys the subtle chaos of mortals and openly throws his opinion in, whether it be physical, mental, magical, or coincidental, by influencing the outcome of their actions and choices.  His interest and involvement on mortals piques with individuals who openly disavow the pantheon and choose a life of godlessness.  He relishes in reminding them that gods exist and can openly impact their lives at any time and is eternally committed to making his presence known. 


Sub Deities

The Thousand, Cherubs of the Luck God

The Wielders of Weal, Disciples of Phineas

-------------------------------------------

==

Raverus, God of DepravityEdit

==

Chaotic Evil

The Dark God who seethes primal urges.  He is the one in the blackest corners of your mind.  His words are a rattling whispered roar of all carnivorous beasts, inciting one to sate their hunger to prey and feed, whether it be on the sick, weak, or strong. His presence may be physical, mental or magical. To be apex; followers must rid themselves of their idea of society and civilization and be one with the bleak hunger in their heart. You will dream of teeth and nothing else.


Sub Deities
- Ro’Gath the Dessicator

- Omikoth the Carnal

- Barachab the Ravager

- Zaligor the Sycophant

-------------------------------------------


==

Rillian, God of Greed and JealousyEdit

==

Neutral Evil

"The primal urge to get the better deal, to want more than the inconsequential individual in front of you, Rillian will be watching you.  You should want more, you deserve it!  Why should anyone have more than you?  Rillian thinks you deserve it too!" - excerpt from a diary of a Cleric of Avarice.  Rillian is a god who quietly resents the other deities of the pantheon.  He knows if he were to directly defy any of his kin he would could very well lose the fight.  His action of contesting godly rights is done through the mortal realm, where he entices the weak-willed to get what, in their own depressed minds, is rightfully theirs.  The moral chaos he ensues among the pantheon is his resolve and desire.

Sub Deities
- Nyfalix the Coveted

- Hyse, Demigod of Knaves

- Myn, Demigod of Entitlement
-------------------------------------------

==

Sashi, Goddess of the High SeasEdit

==

Chaotic Neutral

Since the moment mortalkind stepped foot into a hollowed out log and set out to sea Sashi has been intrigued by fearlessness of the tiny beings exploring her waters. Those that respect her power and dote on her are believed to be blessed with save travels over the vastness of the oceans. It is believed that if mortalkind does not actively try to earn the favor of Sashi, her second son Maroth, or even her cat Tydel, they are leaving themselves open to becoming prey of Sashi's daughters, the Sirens, or even worse, her violent and jealous sister Erlina.


Sub Deities

- Jonuh, Fallen Prince and Warden of the Deep Run

- The Sirens, Wayward Daughters of Sashi

- Tydel, Granter of Safe Passage, King of Cats

- Erlina, Jealous Sister, Bringer of Storms

- Maroth, The Good Son, Helmsman of the Heavens


-------------------------------------------

==

Segfult, God of FlawsEdit

==

Chaotic There is only one god so dangerous and terrifying, that even most of the Pantheon fear it. Segfult, God of Flaws, is an abomination of god, twisted and broken by its own power. There is no reasoning or rationalizing with it, nor any understanding of its existence. Segfult is believed to match the power and might of Io and Ur, yet is so incredibly unstable that its power could possibly surpass them. It is believed Segfult had been locked far away in a unfindable plane, but could find its way back to Arcazin eventually.


-------------------------------------------

==

Talmir, God of the Infinite VoidEdit

==

Chaotic Neutral

One of the few Gods who have peered into the vastness of existence and didn't look away.  Curiosity and absorption of information emanates all around his form in a jettison of colors. He has seen all the realms that have existed and could ever have existed (according to his followers).  Ancient excerpt from a piece of parchment written in inked pollen turned tears turned vomit turned tears/pollen turned blood from a Talmir acolyte contained rambling queries of a mad man, asking such questions as "Is it not you who is a realm in oneself?  Or is it you who ARE the realm? There are things us mortals will never understand, you shan't potato for a black apparatus of bacon bugs!". It is understood that Talmir's knowledge should only be researched in doses, lest an overflow of information fries the brain matter to ash.


-------------------------------------------

==

Ulrik, God of MercyEdit

==

Neutral Good

In the land of mortals there is a sense of duty and respect that can not be ignored, and he sees to it that mortals never forget.  He sings and howls of a code of conduct between the diverse beings of Arcazin, a hymn for all of the living to unite and see their own mortality.  To Him, evil has no physical markers: since evil is in the soul of the confused and neglected. Pity, tolerance, and forgiveness always have a time and place, in any situation, to the Weeping God.


Sub Deities

- Aporres, Champion of Tolerance

- Faustine, Acolyte of Forgiveness

- Bertran, Chaplain of Charity

- Givas, Rector of Pity
-------------------------------------------

==

Ur, God of NaughtEdit

==

Neutral Evil

When the light can stretch no further, when the strife of righteousness disappears, Ur is there.  Ur is enveloped in the darkest of the dark, its features are covered in nothingness and the surrounding light appears to disappear within its aura.  Ur appears as a shadowed figure of a bipedal humanoid form with what is described as the blackest of raven wings.  If one truly seeks the dark the only being that will find them is Ur.  It waits with undying patience and blackened zeal for those that abandon the light.  Ur knows that its domain is virtually infinite and ever lasting, and thrives upon those who share the darkness within.  From the Opus of Endings, an often hunted book, are a few sentences that were recorded by an ambitious dwarven chronicler who was tried for heresy and quickly executed, with her name stricken from any records including family trees, birth rites, and academic/medical records was able to publish her findings to the Dwarven Mechtropoles Journal publication: "Time is nothing, Mortality is nothing, Benevolence is nothing.  The only truth is nothing.  Everything ends and there is only one who will meet you in oblivion.  The great lord Ur is the final embrace of this meaningless existence and eventually you will all see it as Arcazin graciously falls to Ur's nothingness."

Sub Deities

- The Hollow Ones

- Illimith, Stewardess of the Ruined and Forgotten

-------------------------------------------


==

Urnngrakh, Goddess of HateEdit

==

Chaotic Neutral

There is no fury, no wrath, no animosity nor brooding hostility that Urnngrakh can't embody.  All of mortalkind have times of displeasure, temper, outburst, etc.  Urnngrakh favors those that live this lust for violent fervor.  She relishes in the primitive emotions of mortals when they beget an enmity for what patronizes them.  A paladin, kissed with the blessings of Io, may be encircled by a horde of undead and even then Urrngrakh will be present, watching, soaking in the hate.  Where there is turmoil, betrayal, oppression, etc, she is there bathing in the energies wrought from the hatred of mortals.   


Sub Deities

- Beurk, Aspect of Ignorance

- Hrayr, Aspect of Wrath

- Ifft, Aspect of Prejudice

- Fahre, Aspect of Hysteria

- Ru'ak, Aspect of Vengeance


-------------------------------------------


==

Utri, God of the HuntEdit

==

Lawful Neutral

The more elusive of the gods, Utri oversees the balance between predator and prey.  He is a popular deity in rural or remote areas as the farmers, hunters, leather tanners, etc depend upon him for their livelihoods.  If Utri is pleased with the harmony of man and beast he will bestow blessings of health and fertility upon the creatures of the lands.  If greed and gluttony caused by mankind runs rampant he becomes offended and will cause disease and famine to ravage the land. 


Sub Deities

- Zab, the Blooded

- Kreka, the Shepherd

- Hofi, the Sower

- Beda, the Reclaimer

- Tunu, Keeper of Harmony
-------------------------------------------

==

Vaath, God of ConsequenceEdit

==

Lawful Neutral

'Justice' does not coincide with the dogma of this god, as the word and meaning differs between cultures and races throughout Arcazin. 'Justice' is merely based upon the opinion and logic of short-sighted mortals.  Consequence is a definitive outcome of an action and Vaath breathlessly oversees and reacts with an equal or opposite action to maintain balance of the realms.


Sub Deities

- Taysh, Vizier of Aftermath

- Taast, Vizier of Reaction

- Caas, Vizier of Balance

- Aaln, Vizier of Observation
-------------------------------------------

==

Vexis, God of ProfanationEdit

==

Lawful Evil

The younger brother of Nethe once partnered with his sister in the collection of souls expelled from the mortal plane. The good go to Anodos, the neutral stay in Cinerary, and the wicked go to Nedregol, where Vexis once oversaw the containment of evil souls. Over the ages he lamented his lack of definement.  Nethe made all of the rules, decisions, and code of conduct of their occupation.  Vexis wanted greater, something that would make him more renowned than Nethe could ever be.  He chose to directly impact the lives of mortals and give their mortality back to them.  A grieving widow who lost her husband in a war, a father whose child succumbed to sickness, or an untrusting jealous woman regretting her successful poisoning attempt on her ill-begotten lover; Vexis had the answer to their woes.  According to the historians of the Pantheon, Vexis coerced 12 powerful mages to his disciplehood and taught them the ways of reversing death (ie; necromancy).  This god is well documented for creating the first circle of necromancers and it is also noted in the chronicles that Vexis is blind to his creations, not understanding that he is not reversing death (like Io or Aurelia, gods of the Light, would be able to) but evolving life into the abomination of undeath.

==

Vilaq, Goddess of SagacityEdit

==

Neutral Good    

The sister of Talmir, Vilaq witnessed her brother spending ages staring into the void.  While the energies cascaded about his form,  she observed Talmir and saw his pain, enlightenment, anger, glee, sadness, insanity, etc.  Through his choices and decisions she was able to acquire a different understanding of the universe and is the inspiration of early mortalities' conception of 'philosophy'.  Also known as the Woman of Wisdom, Vilaq is not about absorbing all of the knowledge, but having greater knowledge of oneself and the realm(s) one occupies.    


-------------------------------------------

==

Volkyr, God of LawsEdit

==

Lawful Good

'Civilized' mortals, in a circle of equal (and usually high) class individuals, love to scribble down on pieces of finite parchment the rules of how they want their ideal society to be carried out and very few have the intelligence, resources, and courage to stand up and voice against these 'rules'.  There is one god, however, who feels he possesses an even better opinion of how things should work.  Volkyr carries great knowledge and understanding of balance in society and when he speaks his voice booms with a reverberation that can deafen mortals. It is documented in the history of the Pantheon that some mortals went against his decree out of pure annoyance to his boisterousness.  Drawings of Volkyr depict a man with a giant head and negligible chin with an open mouth ejecting scrolls containing codes of conduct.  Those of lawful alignment utilize his teachings, but know how to read between the lines for substantial context, as His Word carries a lot of over-thought nonsense and hypocracies.

Ziliya, Goddess of LoveEdit

==

Chaotic Neutral An often misunderstood deity of the pantheon, Ziliya can be a two-sided coin. She encourages companionship, inspiration, and hope, but when things fall apart amongst partnered mortals she becomes resentful, upset, and hurt.  Though her love will never stop flowing for the mortals, she struggles with cursing the mortal who destroyed the union of love.  At times Ziliya is gracious and forgiving, other moments she is passionately spiteful
