Skirting The Dodgy Path
The first gods
- Rythar – the Goddess of Order
- Mythar – the God of Chaos
In the beginning, there were only two blind gods: Rythar and Mythar. Rythar, Goddess of Order, took the ‘threads of power’ and weaved them together, forming the fabric of space-time. Mythar, God of Chaos, took this fabric and tore it asunder. The remains were gathered back by Rythar and the cycle begins again.
The fall of the first gods
The two Blind Gods of the Beginning were deposed when the universe reordered itself. Without Rythar to knit together the strings of power, they became the new order of gods, a hundred in total. There were the seven Greater Gods and the other 93 Lesser Gods.
Ishap is the most important of the Greater Gods. He created all of the lesser Gods and Goddess, and serves as the Balancer among them. Slightly less in power and authority were Arch-Indar, Goddess of Good, and Nalar, God of Evil. The other four Greater Gods are called the Builders, comprising of the four traits within all mortal races.
The Valheru rose up to challenge the new order of gods in what legend calls “The Chaos Wars”. The gods were unprepared while they still contended against each other for control of various domains.
