Announcement!

We have moved to new, and hopefully better hardware! Along with this move came a bunch of updates to our code base. Please let me know if you spot something wonky.

Roads of Light and Dark

The Roads of Light and Dark: These are transitive paths that celestials and fiends can create with great effort to link their plane with a mortal world. Mortals end up walking into soft points such as crossroads and places where the nature of a plane has been readily taken up by mortals.

Introduction

Humanoids, as the numerous races are called for whom humanity is widely regarded as the tabula rasa, tend to be air-breathing, land-bound bipeds without ability to transit through other solids.

The Secret of Secrets

~Pandemonium, Day 15~

It's like the wind knows who I am, who all of us are. And these pale men and women we kill, these packs with their pale bodies given hints of amphibian things - their frog smiles tell us they know too.

I hate it here. It's like all my thoughts are on the outside, like I'm traveling through the cavernous expanse of what I keep so deep I don't ever have to look at it.

The Jackal and the Bear

The first war was begun by the first of the fiends. On leathery wings they rose from their first home in the Gray Waste, dripping gore and spiritual slime, hungry as only a new-hatched thing can be. They rose to devour the Upper Planes, which were then uninhabited by anything corporeal.

Introduction:

The Slavic Pantheon

Nemui's picture

The worship of Slavic powers has been in decline for several centuries now. On many Prime Material Worlds their followers have converted to other religions, often monotheistic ones – it is known that the pantheon has been pushed out of least three worlds by Taiia the Maker only. That is why the Slavic powers are always on the lookout for young civilizations, unsophisticated, unclaimed by more powerful gods, and easily impressed.

The Faerie Pantheon

The Faerie PantheonDeities of the reclusive and mysterious fey are, not surprisingly, reclusive and mysterious. They are loosely organized into a pantheon of sorts, but given the diversity of their ageless people, the border between a powerful fey and a fey power is often difficult to notice.

The Japanese Pantheon

Nemui's picture

The original worshipers of this pantheon are said to be civilized folk who nonetheless occasionally indulge in barbarism. They've established dynasties and traditions that put most cultures to shame, and expect other mortals to recognize this. Still, they do know how to adapt, and that's one of the reasons why their ancient powers still exist on the planes - at least that's the chant. It could be that, even as they mold themselves to common thought, they are also molding the common thought to their dreams.
