As the Pantheon was fleshed out, a divide occurred. The Primordials became formless powers, given offerings, thanks and prayer amongst the common people. They provided for the basics of survival, the needs of the village and eventually the greater cities. The Gods, called by the scholars the Oshiru, brought greater paths of thought. They were powerful in their own right. Capable of great manipulations and creations. The Oshiru did not become gods because they were worshipped. The Oshiru were worshipped because they were leading us somewhere. Over time, the domains of Primordials and Oshiru mixed. The Lesser Gods became more plentiful and blurred all the lines except one. Immortality. All were believed to exist forever.
But no pantheon would be complete without its heroes and villains. Monstrous beasts of legend, epic heroes, undefeatable villains and the near godly are all remembered in the stories of the world. Under this topic we can discuss nightmares like Vu-Ku the Blood Hydra who drives the war lust of warriors towards utter annihilation without restraint. The Pentacents, five self-serving siblings cursed by their own father with a shard of the Earthen Chaos. Or perhaps the Nautilian Horror of the Ruinous Tide whose tsunami not only drowns coastal towns but washes in an army of sea beasts with the tide to plunder and murder. Exactly how desperate must one be to call upon the Sisters of the Harsh Mercies. The tale of the Mad Icil upon his ice barge chasing after his love and his obsession, the cold and Beautiful Snow. There are many to choose from.
