The Pantheon

The gods of Corrinthius derive their powers directly from the energies of their followers. With few exceptions (Corpusius, Oprapic and Allod being three), any given god would gradually lose power and eventually cease to exist without its followers. What becomes of such failed gods is unknown, but legends speak of men and women that served as deities only to be stripped of their powers, returned to mortality, and losing their minds. Other theories suggest that the Balsherians, a super race that combined technology and magic who predate the Timerans, ascended to the heavens as gods when their society became a utopia.

Whatever the case may be, the gods do exist and are in a constant battle to exercise their will over the peoples of Corrinthius. Their actions, however, are closely monitored by their fellow gods and few risk a confrontation with their peers by directly involving themselves in mortal affairs. Only a god of a higher station can destroy another god, otherwise the deity is merely “dispersed” for a time and then reforms, often seeking revenge (i.e. a greater god could destroy an intermediate god, but an intermediate god could only disperse a greater god). Despite their differences, the gods fear and, sometimes grudgingly, respect one another, making inter-deity conflict exceptionally rare on such a personal level (they normally use their followers to do their dirty work). Only once in memorable time has a god been directly attacked (Corpusius, while still a mortal, attacked and dispersed Shaneer).

Of course, the gods presented here are by no means all inclusive for a variety of other powers are worshipped on Ayrdonya and extend abilities to their followers. However, many of these “other powers” are actually subversions of the gods named here, or merely another name associated with the deity. False prophets and powerless faiths flourish in some areas of Corrinthius.
