Gods, Primordials and other powers of the Dawn War

Postby Zeromaru X » Wed Jan 20, 2016 9:45 am

Inspired by this thread, I have assembled a list of every deity, primordial, far realm entity, archfey and other powerful beings of the 4e Dawn War/Nentir Vale setting. Most of this information is salvaged from the now defunct Wizards Wiki, but I have done my contributions as well.

The Immortals
Collective name for the beings originated in the Astral Sea. Even thought they are called "Immortals", they are not truly immortal, just ageless. They can be killed (is really difficult and requires rare and powerful magic, however). Some have been destroyed in the Dawn War, and elsewhere.

Demiurge

A being beyond beings—this being is an idea and the first cause, the responsible for the sum of all things. It remains inscrutable even to the gods. (PsP, p.146)

The Gods and their Exarchs:
Most dwell in their Astral Dominions in the Astral Sea. At the height of the hierarchy are the Gods themselves. Under them are their Exarchs (demigods) and Archangels.

Avandra: The goddess of change, Avandra delights in freedom, trade, travel, adventure, and the frontier. She is the patron goddess of halflings. (PHB, p.21)

Re: Gods, Primordials and other powers of the Dawn War

Postby Zeromaru X » Wed Jan 20, 2016 9:45 am

Note: Unsourced material is from the Heroes of the Elemental Chaos book. I'm only posting here information about primordials that have been mentioned in the Dawn War setting, as HoEC also list information about Abeirian and Athasian primordials.

The Primordials
Also called the Dawn Titans (DR394, p.54), primordials are elemental creatures of enormous power born from the Elemental Chaos. They shaped the world out of the Elemental Chaos and the gods gave it civility and permanence. When the primordials attempted to destroy the world to began again the process of creation and destruction, the gods warred with them for control of the new creation. The gods eventually triumphed, and primordials now slumber in remote parts of the Elemental Chaos, rage in hidden prisons, or float, lifeless, through the Astral Sea. (DMG, p.150)
    Known living and free Primordials
    Akadi: The Queen of Air. Elemental lord worshiped as goddess of the sky.*
    Alu Kahn Sang: The Wind of Destruction, a vast, raging dust storm in the Elemental Chaos.

    Grumbar: The Lord of Earth. Elemental lord worshiped as god of the earth.*

*Added the Elemental Lords as they are worshiped in the Nentir Vale, according to Heroes of the Elemental Chaos.

The Archomentals:
The difference between primordials and archomentals is thin. Some lore suggests that archomentals played little or no part in the world's creation and arose at some point afterward (maybe they are the firsts creations of the original primordials). Most mortals refer to these entities as the Elemental Princes. The Princes of the Elemental Evil are servants of the Elder Elemental Eye (the presumed first Primordial, in truth an alias of the god Tharizdun —Demonomicon, p.7-9—), working to spread his cult of the Elemental Evil. Other archomentals are known as the Princes of Elemental Good. The good archomentals, for the most part, opposed the Dawn War and either fought alongside the gods or abstained from the conflict. Their refusal to participate ultimately enabled them to retain their freedom, because the deities did not subject them to the fate of their defeated kin. But that freedom comes at a price: the good archomentals are the objects of scorn and hatred from the primordials that are bound or locked away. (HoEC, p.24-25)
    Known living and free Archomentals:
    Ben-hadar: The Valorous Tempest, lord of good sea creatures.
    Chan: The Silent One, queen of good air creatures.
    Crystalle: King of Minerals, prince of mineral creatures.
    Ehkahk: The Smoldering Duke, prince of smoke creatures, ruler of Fume.
    Gazra: The Shifting Emperor, prince of ash creatures.
    Sun Sing: Viceroy of the Void, an archomental associated with darkness and emptiness.
    Sunnis: The True Stone, patron of the Underdark, venerated by svirfneblin and stonechildren.
    Zaaman Rul: The Resilient Ember, child of Imix and Bristia Pel.
    Known living but bound Archomentals:
    Chlimbia: Prince of Magma, prince of evil magma creatures.
    Cryonax: Prince of Elemental Cold, prince of evil cold creatures. Sealed beneath Melora's stone shield. (DR401, "Channel Divinity: Melora")

    Ogremoch: Prince of Elemental Earth, prince of evil earth creatures.
    Olhydra: Princess of Elemental Water, princess of evil water creatures.
    Yan-C-Bin: Prince of Elemental Air, prince of evil air creatures.
    Known Archomentals with unknown status:
    Bwimb: Baron of Ooze, prince of evil ooze creatures; killed by Orcus but respawned as a new Bwimb.
Dead Archomentals:
    Bristia Pel: Princess of Everlasting Flame, an archomental of fire, killed in battle against the Queen of Chaos.
    An archomental of acid that died creating the Tarrasque. (DR418, p.6)
    An archomental of bone and blade that died creating the Tarrasque. (DR418, p.6)

Slaads:
Entropy personified, the slaads thrive in the everchanging Chaos but do not serve its elemental forces. Their movements and aims seem random. Their sole purpose appears to be bringing more chaos into existence, which they accomplish both through the random destructiveness of their actions and through the creation of more slaads. The origin of the slaads and their place in the universe relative to primordials, demons, and other elemental creatures is uncertain. They believe themselves to be the first inhabitants of the universe, predating even the deities and primordials. (MotP, p.71)
    Known Slaad lords.
    Urae-Naas: Once a consort of the primordial Ramenos. (Demonomicon, p.77)
    Ygorl: Lord of Entropy. (SotEC, p.156)

Titans:
Giants and titans have served their own aims since the end of the Dawn War, but some remain loyal to the trapped primordials and see it as their duty to destroy what the gods created. (SotEC, p.58)
    Known Titans:
    Surtur: Lord of the Fire Titans. (SotEC, p.59)
    Thrym: The frost titan king. (SotEC, p.59)
    Xantis: The eldritch titan. (SotEC, p.59)
    Ysaga: The mad storm titan queen. (SotEC, p.59)
    King Karsos: A stone titan of nearly deific power. Imprisoned in Carceri. (SotAS, p.105)
    Nakheten: The raging storm, a powerful storm titan lieutenant of the primordial Heur-Ket. Trapped alongside him in Hestavar. (DU172, p.11)
    Shixzan: A titan whose hammer brought down deadly storms. A prominent figure in the legend of the human paladin Bradaman. (AV2, Arms of Unbreakable Honor)
    An unnamed storm titan bound to serve Moradin for 10 thousand years after the Dawn War. (DU173, p.41)

Demon Princes:
When the Abyss was created, the first primordials where drawn by promises of dominion of all the cosmos. Their contact with the plane corrupted them, transforming them into Demon Princes. Sometime after, the Abyss began to spawn "original" Demon Princes as well. By their will and their savagery, Demogorgon, Orcus, and the multitude of other lords impose a subtle form of order on an otherwise chaotic maelstrom of destruction and hate. If the demon lords were ever to join forces, the deities and other immortals of the Astral Sea might not stand against the onslaught. Such an alliance is all but unthinkable, and the lords of the Abyss spend as much time fighting each other as they do countering outside threats. (Demonomicon, p.7-8; p.16)

The Obyriths:
The oldest myths and legends tell of a race of vile entities that once presided over the remains of a dying universe. These beings of evil incarnate were known as the obyriths. As their hunger drained their realm of all life and power, they knew that their days were numbered. The surviving obyriths breached the barrier between their realm and another, pushing a Shard of Pure Evil through the fissure between realities. The obyriths were able to cross to this world before theirs was destroyed, and corrupted Tharizdun and the first primordials. Later, they instigated the Dawn War in an attempt to control this universe, but their plans were foiled. When the gods won the war, the surviving obyriths retreated into hiding, and many of them pose as demon princes. (Demonomicon, p. 7-9).
    Known obyriths:
    Dagon: A massive aquatic master of tides, the true power behind Demogorgon.
    Obox-ob: Slain by the Queen of Chaos, but reborn in the Abyss, at a much diminished power.

Re: Gods, Primordials and other powers of the Dawn War

Postby Zeromaru X » Wed Jan 20, 2016 9:46 am

The Primal Spirits
The Primal Spirits came into being perhaps as a natural consequence of the world's creation. Or maybe the gods created the primal spirits —intentionally or inadvertently— when they imbued their creation with permanence. After the Dawn War, the Primal Spirits realize the gods' danger to the world and decided the world must be protected from both elemental and immortal influence alike. They created the Primal Ban, declaring the mortal world free from both sides of the conflict. The gods, too exhausted to object and fight another war, retreated to their astral dominions. (DP, p.67; PrP, p.116; W&M, p.56; DR374, p. 42; HotEC, p10)

Dragon 386, p. 35.

The Archfey:
The most powerful of fey spirits are godlike avatars of their chosen aspect of nature in the Feywild. Some are noble eladrin so old and powerful that they have transcended the bounds of mortality, some are the awakened spirits of mighty forests, mountains, or rivers. Others are the sentient incarnations of different types of animals, and a few archfey are fey of other races who have achieved great age and power. Few of these beings are as strong as a deity or even a demon lord, but within their own demesnes, few other entities could hope to best them. (MotP, p. 36)
Note: I've included a the Forgotten Realms archfey, because Heroes of the Feywild states that there is only one Feywild in the multiverse. So, those archfey exist in the World of Nentir Vale as well.

Far Realm Entities
Bizarre alien creatures from beyond reality, they infect the world with madness. Little is known about these creatures.

    Kabu-Athla: An entity that now inhabits the corpse of the god Semuet. (Tomb of Horrors, p.5)

    An unknown Far Realm entity trapped in the lower chambers of the Shrine of Tamoachan. (The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan)

Stars:
It seems that some stars have come under the influence of Far Realm entities. Such creatures use stars (some without conscious thought, but others with intention aforethought) as windows on the world. It seems unlikely that every star in the sky is associated with a mind-shattering monster (though some star pact warlocks wake from nightmares where every light in the night sky simultaneously blinks open, revealing eyes...). But few stars are definitely so associated, and these connections are scribed in a spidery, shaking hand on a parchment titled Revelations of Melech. (DR366)

    Known Far Realm related stars.
    Acamar: A corpse star whose motions and behemoth size send celestial objects that draw too close spiraling to their doom.
    Allabar: The Opener of the Way, a planet created by the primordials but then given sentience by the gods. After seeing their error, the gods send it to the Far Realm, where it became corrupted. It hates the mortal world and wanders in the space, inciting the other stars to destroy it. (MM 3, p.187)
    Caiphon: The Dream Whisperer, a purple star usually on the horizon. It has the guise of a helpful guide star, but sometimes betrays those who rely upon it.
    Delban: An ice-white star often visible only during winter, it might surprise the star-gazer with an impromptu flare during any season.
    Far Wanderer: A comet that traverses the sky every few centuries and its believed to be related to the gods of good. (AV2, Offerings of Celestian)
    Gibbeth: The Endless. Better not to write or think overlong on this greenish point in the sky.
    Hadar: The Ebon Hunger, the extinguished cinder of a star lurking within the cloaking nebula of Ihbar.
    Ihbar: The Hands of Tendrils, a dark nebula between stars, is slowly expanding and eating the light of neighboring constellations.
    Khirad: The Burning Flame, a piercing blue star, its radiance sometimes reveals secrets and gruesome insights.
    Nihal: The Red Worms, a reddish star that writhes around the position it should hold in the heavens.
    Ulban: The Messenger, a comet of blue-white fire and the morning glory. Its blue-white light disrupts cognition and the ability to recognize danger. It also reveals insights about the future, and many star pact warlocks are drawn to make pacts with it. (DU174, p.96)
    Thuban: Of the frozen emerald seas. (PHB, 137)
    Zhudun: Dead, and of the Blank Face. Another corpse star, historically described as shining a baleful light over the Ruined Realm of Cendriane in the Feywild before its fall.

Others:
Other powers that aren't classified as gods, primordials or something else.
    Kaestelaria: A mysterious entity once enslaved by the god Amaan (AP p.84)
    The Hidden Mind: Also known as the Sleeper, is a consciousness that dwells beneath all other sentient minds. Some believe the Hidden Mind is a collective consciousness—the amalgamation of all sentience in the world somehow developing an awareness of its own. (PsP, p.38)
    Lady of Pain: The ruler of Sigil, it is unclear who or what she is. (MotP)
    Primus: Lord of all modrons, it may be primordial, or god, or something entirely unique. (DR414)
    Zutwa: An ancient being of manifest life force that gave up its existence to defeat a primordial of manifest dissolution. It exists as a vestige now. (AP, p.73)
    An unknown being who was neither god nor primordial, but kin to both, who served as the guardian of the Living Gate. He was killed by Tharizdun (PHB3, p.4)

The Elder Constellation:
The "stars" (entities) of the Elder Constellation are not all associated with the Far Realm as some stars in the sky are. However, those unfathomable stars are inconceivably powerful beings who will survive to time’s end.
    Atropus, the World Born Dead: Also one of the few free Primordials.
    Father Llymic: Who dwells in an icy prison, awaiting a time when the world will be right for his arrival.
    Pandorym: A god-slaying weapon that personifies the emotionless void of utter annihilation.
    Ragnorra, Mother of Monsters: A primeval source of corrupted life and horrific monsters.
    Kyuss, The Worm That Walks: A sentient tear in reality through which one can see a swarming mass of maggots and worms that goes on forever. It's said the star Nihal is brother to the Worm, or rather, they are aspects of the same entity as seen from different ends of time.

I like a lot of the adjustments they made to the pantheon in 4E, although it bugs me that they imported Bane from the Forgotten Realms while most of the other gods either come from Greyhawk or were made up on the spot. Makes me wonder if Nerath is some sort of "cosmic crossroads" where mythological detritus from throughout the Multiverse accumulates and is "boiled down" into a sort of "core essence".

Well, if I'm not wrong, they wanted some real world deities in the setting, the major candidates were Ares, Thor and Set. They scrapped that idea in the beginning, and we ended up with Bane, Kord and Sehir, that somehow are based on them (in Dragon 372, they say Bane and FR Bane aren't the same deity, even when some aspects of then are so similar). Obviously they were drawing more inspiration from the Conan mythos than from ancient Egypt when it came to their version of Set.

In 5e DMG they even say that Erathis, Avandra and the Raven Queen are based in Athena, Tyche and a mix of norse Hel and Greyhawk's Wee Jas, that means the idea of using real world deities as a source of inspiration spawned more than those three gods.

As a side note, they also wanted to include Obad-Hai in the 4e pantheon, he even is mentioned in the Races and Classes preview book, but in the end they replaced him with Melora, that's somehow a gender bender Obad-Hai, or a less civilized Ehlonna. The only real exclusive gods to the setting are Ioun (based in the stones?) and Torog.

BTW, updated some missing info about the Demon Princes and the Obyriths in the Primordials section.

Making a god out of Ioun Stones was cute, but I'm actually a pretty big fan of Torog based on what I've read about him - he seems to be a god that was explicitly designed to be "disposable", so you could fight him without ruining the cosmology. And he's got a nice Mole Man / Underminer / Subterran Uprising vibe going on which seems appropriate and not otherwise well-represented.

Great list! Thanks for compiling it. I find it interesting that they use the term "Immortals". I wonder if that is a nod to BECMI?

I find the Archfey a particularly cool addition.

Indeed, seeing Baba Yaga and Morgana among the fey makes me smile, although it seems a bit odd to classify the first as a fomorian.

I didn't see a mention of Ulgurshek...does it exist in 4E at all?

I am happy to finally see where Baba Yaga fits into everything. I like the idea of making her godlike in power. Maybe my view of her is influenced by her portrayal in the Hellboy comics though.

Uglurshek! Nice to see him mentioned here. Fiendish Codex I (3E) is the only place I have seen him mentioned. He was described as being a Draeden which is a BECMI/Mystara reference. I dont know if he has much influence beyond the Abyss so maybe he is less relevant for the Nentir Vale?

Ah, I did not know that. I assume the Draeden were created so that Immortals would have something to kill for XP?

I knew that Ulgurshek was confined to the Abyss, but I thought he might still deserve mention on a list like this, even if he isn't capable of doing much. Arguably the thread title can be read as "powers active in the dawn war", but I just figured it for a list of deity-power beings in general.

Ulgurshek is only mentioned in the "Roll of Abyssal Layers", that's in Demonomicon (p.80). They only list his Abyssal layer and no more. There are other Demon Princes who get this treatment, with only a few getting a section in the book or other sources (referenced in this section, also).

Sweet! I had no idea Ulgurshek was brought over to the 4th Edition.

Updated info with a new missing Primordial (Deluvius), a new missing goddess (Kiaransalee), a new abandoned astral dominion (Yggdrasil), and more dead gods (because the Dawn War can't have enough dead gods).

EDIT: Also, more primal spirits and archfey.

Added Bahamut's "Old Man with the Canaries" aspect and putting Kurtulmak under Tiamat's exarchs (as, according to Threats to Nentir Vale, he is still an exarch of Tiamat).

Well, the Nentir Vale setting will always have a special place for me, because it was the very first setting I explored as a DM. Since it doesn't have sources on is own, I guess this is a good place to document what I know about it.

I completely agree. If there was one 4e product that I wish saw the light of day, it was the Nentir Vale Gazetteer.

Re: Gods, Primordials and other powers of the Dawn War

At last! The most elusive reference on the list was found! I finally found Aoskar, a god that was killed by the Lady of Pain in Planescape, that is listed as one of the dead deities in the Dawn War setting on Wikipedia. Since it was never mentioned by name and I'm not expert in pre-4e D&D lore, I was unable to find him. It was until I read that the Shattered Temple on Sigil was his that I was able to find were they got the info: from the DMG 2 (maybe it was to obvious for older D&D players, but for me was something new :P ).

I guess with this I finally finished this list. Next goal: the (almost) complete history of the Dawn War setting.

There's not much I can say, Zeromaru, as I'm still learning about Nentir Vale and you are clearly the expert here and able to find everything you need.

But this topic (like some of your others) is amazing beyond belief!

I'm really really loving this information you are compiling, in various topics. Are you planning to do anything, once you are sure you have all the gods, primordials and other powers? (For example, have you considered formatting this into a PDF netbook for Nentir Vale? Or would you like a hand locating someone that could help you with that?)

Maybe a PDF stuff... though maybe I will need help with that.

EDIT: Added the evil star Allabar. Thanks to Big Mac to make me see the Monster Manual 3.

Maybe the Nentir Vale Gazetteer will exist after all, thanks to dedicated fans. :D

When I thought I was finished and showed this to a friend, he reminded me the first adventure he played with me as his DM. Added the Weeping Goddess aspect of Avandra.

Again, the Nentir Vale is full of surprises. Added to the dead gods the deity who sacrificed its life so its twin sons, Corellon and Gruumsh, could live. Yeah, in the Dawn War those two are twins! Is that a Planescape reference or something?

Also, added the Old Grandfather primal spirit, the creator of the Thri-Kreen race in Nerath's world. And the primordial known as Annam, the First Creator.
