Once the world was nothingness, and then with Domina the Star Mother, She Who Remembers, the first WORD was brought and it was light.
Then came the world with Lorshian, the first moon with Udros the Steadfast. From the rays of Domina’s firstborn, the sun, and Udos’s moon, Molinoth the Remaker, the World Serpent, was born.
The gods of shadow, darkness, death and decay; The Lurker, Nihil None, Ralet and DARK awoke.
Sleazus appeared and made wine, long before life itself, and began a party of godly proportions that would encompass the first and second ages of the world.
And thus ended the first age of the world.
http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/44488684/

Caliban the architect created the second moon.
Naturasta, Amrito and Zatheens appeared and spread water and life across the barren world.
The gods fought against DARK as he entered the world once more and declared war on creation. He was imprisoned within the third moon, crafted by the efforts of Caliban, Zatheens and Heroicus.
Thus, the second has ended, and at the dawn of the third age, Molinoth and Heroicus walked amongst the mortals.
http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/44505421/

The frosen cyclops Urgös usurped Frackt the frost god's power and invoked eternal cold upon the world, but was beaten back by the combined forces of Domina, Frackt, Caliban, Molinoth, Regolith and Veraiitus the deciever.
Domina damaged her own divinity birthing a pair of frozen stars and was nurtured back to health by Regolith, Molinoth and Heroicus, where she fed upon and almost devoured Heroicus in his entirety.
Thus, in a flood of dick-sucking jokes, the third age ended.

>>44819687
Witness returned to us, and became Witness-that-was, as a god of Balance who set up the Great Wheel, where the souls of mortals travel through to be reborn.
Golgadath the Maw outside Matter fed upon the souls travelling the Wheel, and was set upon by Heroicus, Regolith, Witness-that-was and Veraiitus, who drove it out of cosmos once again, where it hungers and feeds upon the few souls that fall off the wheel.
Herocles the mighty ascended into godhood and fought Domina in a dream of grandeur caused by Veraiitus, and was devoured in the end and remade into a giant yellow star.

Pic related to you and your light. Light brings warmth, and I'm trying to keep things chill.

>>44820434
Cold doesn't need help, it happens well enough on its own. Just look at that vast and dark frozen expanse of space. It encroaches ever steadily on the few places of light and warmth in creation. Were the gods to do nothing, all creation would end up so. Light and heat must be created for mortal life to continue..
>>
>>44820405
As long as it doesn't have to do with stars, since there is already a god of that domain, it shouldn't be a problem.

If you're just like a light-made cosmic trailblazer, it should be fine. Perhaps even consider some sort of connection or relation to the star god, since most light or luminous-type gods are in some way related to her. Not required, but a possibility others have taken.

Rolling. Bonus of 30 because the Luminous and saecora are handling it and there's a lot of them.

That makes sense, if you want that then just claim lineage to Domina. Specifically how you might be related, if you just sprung to being from light, or are actually born from her, is up to you to decide.

I set it orbiting my twin stars, as close as I dare so as to absorb as much of the wonderful freezing energy as it can get.

Gonna go with "Born from the light of her stars" then. Still basically her son though.

Well you know how it is, mother. I'm my own God now, and I need to try and be independent. Spread light on my own where I can.

Just a reminder that it wasn't a full suit of armor, just what was left after being largely shattered and torn apart, and the largest remaining portion being sent hurtling at the Earth-like planet.

The remainder would be a large collection of pieces and dust, probably.

4/10, could do better. I'll let it 'cook' in the light of my stars, and come back to it later.

>>44821103
I was a Frost God, first and foremost. My reign over comets was during my time when I was stripped off all divinity, but now that I am once again a God, I need not tarry with such playthings as Comets. Of course, they are of my domain, even if not of my creation, so I will take care of them should they come under threat. However, I will increase my cosmic stake by working on a planet all my own!
>>
>>44821325
That would be Regolith, a god that sprung from starlight and is more in the vein of "divine punisher and retribution" god. But yeah, he goes by grandson so that makes sense if you chose to as well.

Also nice move with the fireflies.

>>44821414
Hey bro, nice to meet you.
>>
>>44821325
Greetings little Brother! Welcome to the Cosmos!

I am Regolith, and we are the Grandsons of Domina, with your other older brother Monolith.

This is the way we were born. I was born from the collision of Domina's first two children, which formed the main Star and the debris formed me. Monolith was formed from the Light of Domina's stars hitting the moon of our main planet.
>>
>>44821562
>Youngest of three brothers
Oh boy.

I came into being from light and light alone, beams from Domina's stars reaching deep into space. Once they had traveled far enough, they were alone in a vast expanse of darkness. There was naught but that light for an untold distance. After ages had passed, that light eventually came together to form me out of the desire to escape the darkness. Now that I am, my only goal is to eliminate such places of pure darkness, and spread light everywhere.
>>
>>44821126
Caliban, quick question. I know I'm still in debt to you for loan of the comets, armor and angels, but why did you put your planet around my star? They are cold, not "lower than other stars" but actively, paradoxically cold. They will freeze your planet solid!
>>
How're the humans doing? Last thing I remember was hem building temples around that big flame. THey invent porn yet?
>>
>>44822239
They discovered 3 kinds of magic, and have been dicking around with Shadow Shards.
>>
>>44822239
Well, so far their most advanced invention is class distinctions and classism that may or may not have been used to stoke many of them into civil wars by Veraiitus.

Oh, and I made a few demigods... and I'm quite surprised you hadn't done so sooner.

I fear I have some holes in my knowledge about mortals which could ruin my schemes. So, I intend to spend the rest of the 5th age in an 'Avatar' of sorts, so that I may study the mortal beings my schemes concern.

Rolled 25 (1d100)

Maybe not individually, but I should be able to find some sustenance off the Wheel. Divine essence or not, it's still something to sate the hunger.

>>44823551

Well not what I expected but not a complete failure. I was able to draw some sustenance from the Wheel, and consumed who knows how many and what kinds of souls.

Not enough to sate the hunger, but enough of a taste and difference to know that it's a possibility that if I wanted to just latch onto the Wheel and feed off it I could.
>>
>>44823821
Cold is the beginning and the end, little one! It was before us, even Domina, and it shall be after us, when our Divine Essence dwindles and the stars grow cold, colder even than mine! That is True Cold, Barastran, something beyond even my power! No, I dally in forces to do with anything ABOVE 0 Kelvin, but BELOW room temperature.

Well well well, it looks like I have a deep understanding of the present mortals thanks to the help of my kin.

I think it's worth the effort now, that I'll take the chance to try and manifest an avatar to interact with the mortals in the zoo on a personal level.

First roll is for the success of the avatar, basically how close in terms of appearance, size, etc... to human it is. Second is for how masked the divinity of the avatar is, to appear truly mortal.

I asked about the nature of Light from Regolith, but now I wish to hear what you believe Light to be. That and what the purpose of the Gods should be.
>>
>>44826978
Why would I be mad about that? Mortals with some divine essence, that means they might end up on the Wheel eventually which I can feed from.

We're talking hypotheticals here.

>>44827041
Light is the furious radiance of my glory and divinity, of course! Light comes from the stars which are my children, an extension of me and share and spread my glory. Perhaps there are other sources of light, like fire, but I don't concern myself with such terrestrial details.

The purpose of the gods should be to create and give shape to the cosmos so that my glory may find way to it, and have something to fall upon. As gods emerge and create and change, the cosmos expands, and my glory extends. It seems though that with the emergence of mortals, the purpose of the gods may change overtime.

Whatever the case, nothing will ever change my personal opinion, that they serve best for consumption and conversion to their purest form; stars.
>>
>>44827238
I see. Thank You Great-Grandmother.

Are any of Domina's descendants actually a product of someone fucking her?

Cause the latest addition to the Pantheon was literally made out of pieces of a bunch of Gods and is tangentially related to her.

I don't even know how Laxinom is related to her.
>>
>>44827864
None yet, no. Some gods have tried but none have made it that far.

Laxinom has a similar means of creation as Regolith; both came into being by simply forming out of starlight under specific circumstances. Regolith emerged from the light of the collision of the first two stars, Laxinom emerged from the light shone into the farthest, darkest recesses of the cosmos and left alone long enough. I assume in this way, both are a result of the spread of my divinity.

oh my, it seems the demigods of different lines aren't rivals amongst the mortals.
>>
>>44833986
>>44833994
and demigods of combined family lines are more than one-third more powerful than the "regular" kind. huh.
>>
>>44834006
Seeing as we have often cooperated, I'm not surprised that our children do.
>>
Rolled 40 (1d100)

You kids and your lineages. Uncle Frackt is a lone wolf! No parents, no kids, just me and the never ending Frost that chills me to my very bone...

Anyway, using the Word to tweak my planet. I want more ice and snow!

There's a point where this should be stopped from happening, but just keep going and see what happens.

Another day, another play. Rolling to again feed off the Wheel. Gon' get me some mortal soul eatins'
>>
>>44836550
Domina, you are literally licking crumbs off a dirty washboard. There is no nutritional value to be had here.
>>
Rolled 30 (1d100)

>>44836701
I'd rather lick crumbs off a dirty washboard or eat out of the garbage than sit hungry. In fact, now that I've tried it a few times, rolling to try to adjust my pallete to be able to derive sustenance from common souls. Add 20 for my two attempts so far.
>>
>>44836337

Not only that, but the way Solar Clerics, FrostFire Mages and Binding Summoners work, they are actually generating matter and energy, albiet of the non-divine kind, from nothing, or at least, from materials that are renewable, such as souls. With Demi-Gods approaching Divinity and mortals keeping Entropy at bay, we have birthed a Universe that should technically keep growing forever...

Of course, Demi-Gods only get a huge power boost when mixing Blood-Lines. That means, once 2 families effectively become 1, their power stops growing, and may even once again go into decline, at least, until a new god introduces a new bloodline.

This Universe runs on Gods...
>>
>>44836789
>This Universe runs on Gods...

>Gods in this setting are both the creators of the fire, and also the kindling
>To create, they must destroy themselves

Deep.
>>
>>44836922
Yep. To keep the darkness at bay, we must sacrifice portions of ourselves. >>44836550
Grandmother, perhaps you could focus on the souls of your Clerics. They use their souls to fuel their magic like we do.
>>
>>44836789
Caliban taught Magic to his Followers too. Didn't name it though but it's pretty much just Reality Manipulation.
>>
They would see it as a fitting afterlife, as they get to be one with you.
>>
>>44837783
"Reality manipulation" is what all of us Gods can do, and is also called The Word. He just allowed/taught his 'angels' to use The Word as well, or at least, that's the explanation that makes the most sense.

The mortals can't use The Word, but the closest they can get to it is through Binding Summoners. Summoners actually steal slivers of godly essence, but it's like taking a grain of sand from the desert, so us God don't even notice.
You mean the Binding Summoners?
>>
>>44837870
It's up in this thread. His Followers used a ritual to move his world.

Maybe call it Ritualism? They use rituals to tap into the Word.
>>
>>44837764
It's the Wheel, I don't think it's as easy as just looking at it and picking out which souls I want to consume, as opposed to putting your open mouth into a river and just drinking whatever comes. If some of them happen to be Cleric souls then much more the better.

Unless you mean finding living Clerics and feeding on them, which seems like a bad idea to me.
>>
Rolled 40 (1d100)

>>44839556
Eating Clerics souls might TASTE better, but probably don't give any extra calories. They are, for all intents and purposes, normal souls. Only divine beings have larger souls. Why don't you try having them give you sacrifices or something? Although, anything they can provide would still be sand grains compared to the rich meals of your previous, divine meals.

Entropy's a bitch. We're running out of Divine Essence that's not tied up in a god or star.

Anyway, tweaking my planet further. More Ice, maybe some life on an excellent roll.
>>
Hmm. Perhaps we can teach the Clerics a ritual similar to what Heroicus did, to make a demigod a true Divine, as a sacrifice to Grandmother Domina. The demigods would see it as a high honor to have this be the end of their life. Maybe it would be what happens when they get old, so they can do the most good in the world.
>>
>>44840379
I'm fine with sustenance from the Wheel, and I don't think more stars are needed yet with only as many active gods as there are.

>>44840298
Sacrificed of what, their souls which I would already be consuming from the Wheel? Unless they can come up with something creative, it seems counter productive.

Might try to avatar again in the near future though.
>>
Seeing as mortals are usually not Divine, why don't you just create and inject more mortal souls into the Cycle?
>>
>>44840758
You mean the cosmos proper? Who to do that?
>>
Rolled 14, 13 = 27 (2d100)

>>44841001
I can.

Rolling to create mortal souls. First roll is for quantity, second is for quality. If a roll is above 50, it means I repaired the Damage Domina did to the system and that the new souls have Special Abilities.
>>
Rolled 34 (1d100)

>>44840562
I was going to suggest sacrificing NON-Cleric souls. Still, I get your point, seeing as you eat most souls anyway. On that topic, aren't you fucking with the reincarnation cycle or something? Also, shouldn't FrostFire Mages actually INCREASE your hunger? My essence is sort of anethema to you, after all. I guess it's inconsequential, seeing as the mortal souls are doing almost nothing for you anyway, but still...

Anyway, working on my planet again. I'll take to the land itself, allowing my Avatar to work up close and personal on the planet, cooling it with my freezing powers.
>>
>>44841100
Welp. At least some of the Damage is fixed.
>>
Hello everyone! Has humanity freed itself from the terror of the velociogliders?
>>
>>44841316
Yay, nature goddess!

>>44841316
Hello Naturasta, it's been a while.

Humanity is doing fine. As are the races of my World.
>>
Rolled 57, 69 = 126 (2d100)

>>44841135

>On that topic, aren't you fucking with the reincarnation cycle or something?

Of course I am, I'm sitting at the end of the Wheel at the point where it returns to the cosmos, and consuming the souls as they reach the end of their journey after completing a rotation of the Wheel. Pretty sure this prevents them from returning to the cosmos and creation, on account of y'know, being consumed.

Not sure about the frosty mages, since I'm not eating them, just their souls? Maybe it does increase my hunger, but that just means consuming more other types of souls to offset.

Rolling to try to experiment with an avatar again, same two rolls as before.

>>44841316
Welcome back, nice to see you again. And no, the velocigliders are still a very real threat.
>>
Someone should tell Domina to get her fat ass off the Wheel before she destroys Creation.
>>
>>44841969
>The gods stage an intervention

I CAN STOP WHENEVER I WANT

>>44841546
Well definitely better than last time. Roughly near half-human, and fairly concealed divinity. I won't dissipate this avatar yet, since it could come in handy later on or in the next attempt.

I just put her in charge of the zoo for now.
>>
>>44841391
That's good. The velociogliders were a bit too mighty. I felt bad about that for a while.
>>
>>44842414
More worlds, more creation. Get cracking, nature goddess.
>>
>>44842414

There's a prime Ice Planet that needs a little love. If you feel like designing a critter for that planet, I won't say no!
>>
Rolled 51, 65 = 116 (2d100)

>>44842414
Nonsense, they were a fine creation and I even put a few into my labyrinth alongside Veraiitus's illusions, Uröng's and Frackt's giants/ice traps, a few liths from Molinoth and various other trials.

Which reminds me, I wonder if any adventurer has reached the throne at the top by now.
(first roll is for mortal adventurers, 95+ means 1 has reached the top, second roll is demigods, with 90+ meaning 1 has reached the top)
>>
>>44843398
Still uncompleted lol
>>
>>44843463
It's not my fault the mortals are incompetent.

then again, once one of them actually reaches the throne and sits upon it, he shall receive my hammer, domain and power, allowing me to prepare myself for the ultimate sacrifice.
>>
>>44843553

>inb4 some other god tries to do the challenge to get the power, or does it by proxy by guiding some mortal
>>
>>44843594
>Some other god tries to usurp the power, only to find the inscription "any MORTAL whose soul is TRULY MORTAL who sits upon this throne shall receive the powers of Heroicus. No Veraiitus, there are no loopholes, either you're a mortal or a god. Yes, you can determine if your trick worked by testing to see how well your soul feeds Domina."
>>
>>44843648

>God influences and guides a true mortal to complete the maze
>If they can't just steal or kill the mortal upon completion, then have them as a minion or even slave
>>
>>44843648
I would never do such a thing!

>>44843730
>their soul has been influenced by a god, therefore they cannot have the power. Veraiitus has been foiled once again.
>steal the power or kill the mortal? If they could, then they'd have killed me a long time ago.
Come on choir member, it's like you're not even trying.

>>44843760
sure you wouldn't.
>>
>>44843788
Aren't you still in a weakened state? Surprised no one has tried to kill you yet.
>>
>>44843809
I have regained around 2/3rds of my power so far. If someone had the intention of usurping me, they lost their window of opportunity some time ago.
>>
Rolled 99, 24 = 123 (2d100)

>>44841546
Rolling to further perfect the avatar, using it as a base to improve upon. Half of each initial value, added to the new values.
>>
Rolled 58 (1d100)

>>44843788
What if they weren't influenced, just guided? Say for example, if I created a sphere of divine light to guide anyone who tried through your labyrinth?

Y'know what, I just woke up and I'm bored, so I'll go ahead and roll for it. It sounds like a terribly dreary place anyway.
>>
Rolled 14 (1d100)

>>44843962
then I roll against you to snuff out any influence you exert on my labyrinth in mount Hympus. The labyrinth is to be conquered and beaten of the mortals' own volition, not served up on a platter.
>>
>>44843945

Well shit, I didn't even need to use half that time but good anyway.

Looks like I created a perfect human-looking avatar, with a middling level of divine concealment. Mortals probably cannot notice the divinity, demi-gods may have to roll to notice, but gods can probably tell.

For now, I place her in the zoo rather than as a warden. May eventually see how interaction with mortals goes.
>>
>>44844000
Let's just say the light will only be visible to those well attuned to the divine. Would they not be more fitting to conquer your labyrinth regardless?
>>
>>44843788
Slander! Lies! I would rather start a thousand wars than help them through your Labyrinth!
>>
Rolled 48 (1d100)

>>44844081
Any mortal with the courage to brave through dangers greater than any he should have to face in his life is fit to conquer the labyrinth, latent divinity is irrelevant to whoever is made heir to my power.

Very well, a new precaution must be made to make my labyrinth fair. I shall construct an avatar of my power on the throne who will literally cast out of the mountain any mortal influenced or empowered by a divine in a plot to usurp my powers. Roll will be the avatar's power in relation to myself. (my demigods are a 6, the combined Heroicus-Regolith demigods are a 9, so they'd be able to defeat the avatar regardless of divine intervention anyways.)
>>
>>44844200
>they'd beat the avatar regardless of divine intervention
forgot to add in "if the roll was below 6 or 9".
>>
Rolled 5 (1d100)

The first to go through the Maze shall be a Mage. Win glory and honor for Frakt! To show the power of the FrostFire Mage, a 94+ is needed!
>>
>>44844675
He dies in the first room, to a trap of my own design.

Nice.
>>
>>44844704
you really should have warned him about that one....
>>
Rolled 18, 29, 47 = 94 (3d100)

Sending one of each of the magical users. First the Cleric, then the Mage, then the Summoner. All need 94+ due to their natural talents putting them at an advantage over other adventurers.

Greetings! Glad to see you again Natasura. The velociglider are still preying on small children and pets, but I still love them. It was fun making life with you. Maybe we should do it again?
>>
Rolled 32 (1d100)

Once more, to perfect the avatar. Her physical form is complete, now just for concealing divinity further. Now a flat addition to the previous score.

If only Caliban were here, his help would be great for something like this.

>>44847226
Ehh, I could help you... But I think you should ask Barastran instead. The little guy should get some experience.
>>
>>44849369
Whatever works. I just need the avatar to have a definite physical, material presence. I don't even think a roll is necessary, just the willing assistance of a creator god.

Of course. Rolling to channel divine energy into you.
>>

>>44849655

It appears the venture was a complete success.

Up to you what it looks like and all that.
>>
>>44849972
Simply looking to create an avatar that can go among humans, unnoticed even by gods. After many attempts, maximized both stats, so the avatar looks and has the physical body of a normal human, and the divine mark upon/within it is nearly unnoticeable.

Will probably try interacting with mortals pretty soon now.

>Also, slow era this has been. Guess it just wasn't a good time for everyone to be available. Might as well ask now, but when might a next era be expected? Assuming after this one ends when it does.
>>
>>44850562
Yep.

How many mortal souls would it take to make another star?
>>
>>44852462
Normal mortal souls? No clue, might not be possible. At best, some failed imitation of a star, like the brown dwarf.

Demi-gods, probably a lot but more possible.
>>
>>44850562
>Next era is to be expected tuesday-wednesday at the same time as usually

Thanks in advance, as usual.
