Gods and Goddesses
Therklo - All Father the father of the gods mostly a seemingly uninterested observer in the antics and power play’s of his children.
Illitana- His wife and equal in power. The mother of the gods. The two of them are said to have been created at the same time. She holds herself aloof also for the most part
The Active Gods
Traton- the God of War and Battle- this is the god of most of the male warriors on the world (though some males worship his sister and sometimes lover Charvon also) he is almost exclusively the God of warrior Kings and generals reveling in strategy and tactics more than Charvon who is more interested in the individual warrior and skills.Priests of this god are both healers and warriors and command some basic battle magic usually having to do with making a warrior better courage, armor, strength, speed, dexterity, and a dispelling of exhaustion are all things that the priests of Traton can magically give to themselves and their fellow warriors. They can also heal almost any injury that is not mortal, the healing takes more time the more grievous the wound. They are granted their spells by their god as all priests are and as such they have to perform a ritual and prayer session to regain power spent. Their Philosophy is one of duty, honor, and loyalty, to the god, to ones nation, to ones comrades in arms and then to themselves. They are a very self reliant bunch and look with disdain on those that show weakness or softness. They can be implacable enemies but will treat an enemy with honor and mercy if they have been impressed that their enemy is honorable himself.
Charvon`- the goddess of Warriors, lust and passion- the female counterpart of Traton, his sister and sometime lover (though Charvon has had affairs with many of the gods). Her priestesses are all warriors. The live for the thrills of physical things, hence battle passion and lust. And as such they attack all three with a single headlong rush. Many times they are considered rash, headstrong and foolish, but their personal courage and their passion for their causes and desires cannot be gainsaid. They are also less duty and loyalty bound than the followers of her Brother. They tend to be loyal to the tenets of their goddess first of course and usually do not form loyalty to nations, though a cause or movement might attract wide ranging support from the church. They also tend to be a bit more quixotic in their actions and have often led themselves and others into trouble in support of a good cause. But their skill and bravery have just as often gotten them out of such situations. Their spheres of magic are almost identical to the ones that Traton grants his followers and are renewed in much the same way. (all priest spells are it is just the rituals and ways of worship that change that change) They tend to be hard fighting hard loving and very passionate about anything they pursue whether it is the next battle a handsome man a beautiful woman or the most lovely piece of poetry they have ever heard.
Sinasea- goddess of the earth the mother earth goddess mostly worshiped by farmers peasants she is a kind and gentle soul. Her province is the Land and all that dwell in it, while she is undoubtedly one of the most powerful gods or goddesses her power is more subtle. Her priests get spells to heal that are unparalleled by any other the most high of them able to even bring back the dead. Her priests are usually gentle sorts that try to avoid any fight unless the attackers threaten harm to the land then they are implacable foes and can on those rare occasions cal down the wrath of their goddess in Earthquakes mighty storms lightning and such to deal with such miscreants, but they will only use this magic for that sort of case and in this type of situation they make a direct plea to their goddess not using the healing and growth magic that they have already worshipped her for.
Th`Shalinon- goddess of magic this goddess is very powerful her followers are mages of every discipline worship her, though they may also worship the patron gods or goddesses (all her sons and daughters) of their own discipline. Her priests are all mages that have a few healing magics and a little light defensive magic to bolster their other spells and powers. They are the only ones on the world that do not have to follow a discipline since their magic is granted to them directly from the goddess herself. They can follow any creed, rules, or lack of them they wish. She is strictly neutral on her outlook living for magic and its furtherance and refinement and little else.
She has seven children, three girls and four boys, who are patrons of the different disciplines of magic. They each follow the tenets of their own disciplines pretty straightforwardly so I will just list their sexes here. They also take the name’s that their disciplines are called on the world.
