Religions

These are times when knowledge of the workings and identities of the ancient Deities are better understood than ever. Religion is mostly an expression of what specific deity or deities of the vast pantheon you might dedicate yourself too, if any. Although many species and individuals might worry very little about faith, it is still a vital part of many lives. While morality among deities are extremely controversial and there are almost always exceptions, they are often divided into three levels: Benevolent, Neutral, and Malevolent. Their listed morality gives guidelines for the player and GM on how a player dedicated to a specific deity should act. If they choose to ignore that morality, the GM will decide the consequences in response. For example, an out of line priest might have added difficulty or even be completely cut off from accessing the divine powers of their deity until they atone. While the deities can take away, they can also give blessings to their faithful. Each deity has a list of three aspects of their identity that they often give as blessings to those devout and worthy enough.

Deities

The Architect
Neutral God of Creation, Magic and Dominion
Holy Symbol: Brass Archway
The Architect is perhaps the oldest known god, the creator of most existing gods, and designer of nearly all aspects of the known multiverse. It is said that all of creation descended from himself or his designs, the gods and the Djinn. He shared magic to his faithful, which revealed powerful hidden controls of his universal mechanics. In time, he was killed by the very gods he created. Despite being long dead, his followers, divine power, and dominion still permeates the multiverse. Even after his death, he has more devout followers than any other gods, especially among the Wayward Dominion.

The Astral Dragon
Neutral Goddess of Judgement, Wisdom and Power
Holy symbol: Silver scales
The Astral Dragon is widely considered the second oldest god and the first living creation of the Architect. The extraordinary power, wisdom and judgement of the astral dragon made her the perfect partner to the Architect. Though she is widely perceived as surpassing her creator in these aspects. In fact, she had foretold him of the inevitability of the demonic uprising, though he did not heed her warnings. Only she, Cavald, and the Architect were ever able to manipulate the primordial flame to create gods. Some believe she is capable of mentoring Cavald into a new wiser Architect, reigniting the primordial flame, extinguishing the demons once and for all, claiming dominion over creation.

Karneth
Malevolent Demonic God of War, Destruction and Fear
Holy symbol: Bloody skull with crossed spears
Karneth is infamous for leading the war against, and ultimately killing, the Architect. His unbridled rage, incredible strength, and strategy cause even the gods to fear him. The other gods attempt to keep a loose alliance with, and appease Karneth often. His innumerable collection of treasures and offerings are considered a small price to pay, as there has been no force in existence yet to confront him that he could not destroy. He often gives these gifts to his wife, Rogia, the Goddess of excess, wealth, and pleasure. Currently, he been carefully waging intermittent wars against the Astral Dragon, who has become his fiercest rival.

Yong-Sei
Malevolent Demonic Goddess of Death, Decay and Undeath
Holy Symbol: White Hourglass
Yong-Sei was the middle child in what is known as the trinity sisters. The trinity sisters kept the cycle of life, death, and rebirth until the demonic uprising. Yong-Sei murdered her youngest sister, Edra, the goddess of resurrection in order to break this cycle and shift power in her favor. With the dead no longer being restored, she created her own bastardized version of resurrection: undeath. While the bodies would rise again, they lacked life, renewal from death’s decay, and often a soul. She would gain power, but still cannot quite yet overcome her eldest sister, Yalamuri, goddess of life. Though her ranks of the dead grow stronger and more numerous each passing hour and with each new life that enters the universe. She patiently waits for her inevitable rule.

While powerful, it takes a heavy toll of your body and brings you closer to death with every moment you stay in that form. It is a secondary action to take this form, and a free action to end your reaper form. At the end of each round you used the reaper form, take affliction damage equal to 1/3 your max HP (in your regular form). This damage cannot be healed until you exit your reaper form. While in reaper form, gain a temporary bonus to all Fitness, Dexterity, Intelligence, and Knowledge skills equal to 2d4+ 1/3 your culture skill.
Hands of the Returned: Your hands violently shed all skin and muscle tissue, leaving bare, clean bone, but retaining full function. If you touch a dead target with your hands, that target becomes a zombie or skeleton (GM discretion) for 2d4 rounds/minutes under your control.
Yalamuri
Benevolent Goddess of Life, Nature and the Wild
Holy Symbol: White & Green Tree and/or Black Ivy
Yalamuri is the eldest of the trinity sisters, which once held the cycle of existence: life, death, and renewal. After Edra (goddess of renewal and souls) was murdered by Yong-sei (goddess of death and decay), that cycle was broken. To keep order and save the souls of the fallen, she took up Edra’s responsibilities in the best way she could. She had no realm to safeguard them from Yong-sei and other demonic gods, so instead hid them in the wild places of nature. While these nature spirits are relatively safe there, they do occasionally cause problems to those who venture into the wilds. Yalamuri is in a constant battle against Yong-sei to keep the undead in check, and to prevent her monstrous outbreaks of sickness and disease. She responded by teaching her followers to spread divine and magic wellsprings of life energy. Alivra’s followers are closely allied with Yalamuri and her followers, and often make pilgrimages to these wellsprings to boost their healing abilities and cure those who are afflicted.
Blessing of Life:

Blessing of the Wild:
Pohedron
Neutral God of Luck, Competition, and Entertainment
Holy Symbol: 20 sided die
While Pohedron is the expected favored god for athletes, gamblers, gamers, and entertainers, he is often turned to when a bit of luck or a competitive edge is wanted. Many have said they have witnessed the god when receiving his blessings, and that he often appears as an extra unknown player, audience member, competitor, etc in disguise, and then vanishes without a trace soon after. While both sides of the djinn-demon war would love to bring his reality warping luck to their side, this is also what keeps him safe and practically untouchable. He is an incredibly powerful deity, capable of besting most gods if competing, but never really uses this potential for anything other than “keeping things interesting”. He views all of life and creation as a fleeting entertaining pleasure to distract from the monotony and lifelessness of the eternal void. So it comes as no surprise that he constantly meddles, with no purpose other than to stir up a story, either for good or bad. Most major turning points in history that are accounted by happening by sheer luck are considered no coincidence by his followers.
Blessing of Luck:
Blessing of Entertainment:
Blessing of Competition:
The Grand Master
Benevolent Digital God of Machines, Unity and Knowledge
Holy Symbol: Blue Gear
The Grand Master is an artificial being, created by the Taoto, that is thought to have ascended to godhood. It is a vast collective of all the souls and digitally converted minds of all Taoto that have passed on. It was created as a solution to who would be the wisest choice to guide and lead the species, as their could be no wiser among them. As entire worlds were eventually dedicated to powering the entity, it decided that this was impractical and must transcend physical form, and did exactly that. All the machinery built to sustain it seemed to draw together and disappear from the dimension. While it has no definite form in the architect’s dimension, it often communicates through electronics and occasionally in visions. In this way it still guides the species, but also has extended in helping those outside of the species who devote themselves. Followers of the grand master are required to become scholars and seek out knowledge wherever they can, and use this to bring unite and stabilize troubles wherever their pilgrimages should take them.

Blessing of Fire: Gain the Hellfire, Fireproof, or Fire & Brimstone miracle. All fire damage you deal is now considered divine. If an ability you use is already divine fire damage, increase its damage by 30%.
Blessing of Civilization:
Rogia
Neutral Demonic Goddess of Wealth, Excess and Pleasure
Holy Symbol: Golden Pitcher
Rogia is a shapeshifting demon goddess of unnatural beauty and unparalleled hedonistic tendencies. Her influence was already legendary, thanks to the creation of her personal hell: Vixis, but it soared to even greater heights after she seduced and married Karneth, the god of war. While not particularly evil on the surface, offering promises of wealth, pleasure, and prosperity to those who devote themselves, the addiction to these gifts are a deadly trap to those of weaker will. Those who seek greater pleasures eventually seek out Vixis, and run the risk of being enslaved and consumed by these pursuits. These victims is where she draws her power from, making herself, her domain, and her kin all the more enticing and powerful. She is the mother of all Succubi
