THE CULTIVATOR

Post by willpell » Fri Jun 24, 2016 1:56 am

God of patience, gardening, social order and earthworks. Believes matter-of-factly in the eugenic husbanding of humanoid bloodlines; has no use for such romantic notions as love, although is firmly committed to peace and social justice. Believes that civilizations, like plants, require constant tending, nurturing and pruning in order to flourish; encourages the taming and transformation of the natural world for the purpose of supporting urban growth, but is firmly opposed to real industrialization or to the careless strip-mining of resources (especially when only for the sake of illusory economic development).

In the wake of her current irrelevance, her surviving worship is increasingly radicalizing, rendering her clerics frequently antisocial, misanderistic, and often downright Evil. The goddess herself remains pure and essentially Good, viewing the straying of her flock with considerable fright, but the oaths and similar restrictions which once protected her purity have since come to impede her ability to control her own cult; she has become much what she once encouraged women to become, a weak and imperiled damsel who relies on outside forces to protect her against the ever-impending threat of her uttermost violation. Should the Web of Lies succeed in permanently corrupting her cult, she would lose most of the power she has accumulated, in exchange for being "liberated" into a state of vicious aggression which could make her one of the world's most virulent threats.
WOW!! Quite an interesting goddess!

THE PATHETIC FALLACY

Post by willpell » Tue Jun 28, 2016 6:56 pm

Representing not only the tendency to anthropomorphize inanimate objects and abstract concepts, but all fallacious reasoning in general, this subsidiary deity of the Skeptic is a Pathetic creature indeed...by his very nature, he should not exist, yet the Illuminati goddess forces him to, and puts him in the deific version of intense pain as he continually contradicts his own symbolic purpose. As specious reasoning is believed, he grows more powerful, but the divine structure quickly corrects the imbalance in order to prevent the very fabric of logic from disintegrating, and the backlash scours away his ideological "substance"; this "death spiral" should have long since destroyed him, but the Skeptic continually forces him to reassert himself.

THE ENORMITY

Post by willpell » Tue Jun 28, 2016 7:49 pm

Said to be a massive reptile 200 feet tall, with incredible destructive powers and a fundamental cosmic inability to be defeated (often thought to be an interpretation of the Tarrasque, though the two are distinct entities), this ancient deity is the object of peasant superstition and has no organized cult, but it is respected across huge swaths of the countryside, especially near the coasts. Not only is it a threatened scourge of civilization, a force of periodic destructive catharsis which allows the world to be cleansed and then rebuild, but it also symbolizes the dizzying scope and scale of things, the mind-numbing awe which comes of seeing something which seems too big to possibly exist at all, where the merest exposure shakes one's worldview and forces one to re-evaluate one's priorities. Several other minor deities are worshipped under more approachable aspects, but ultimately trace back to this thematic basis, and thus are thought to be avatars of the original primordial god-being (which predates the tendency toward generally humanoid forms among the divine, and may indeed have been one of the first divinities to challenge the dominance of elementals, dragons, slaver fish, and other "physical gods" over the pre-humanoid world).
