I am not sure what this about, you list the three gifts and describe briefly what went into getting, but if it is about the gifts then shouldn't we know why they were given, you have healers and demons revokers but what is the goal of the god?
If it is about Saints, should we know their stories? Is there a thesis statement to this post. You give us some details, but they are just details they lack narrative context and thus dramatic or emotional weight. Go to Comment
Consider this: he was standing next to the second most powerful being in all of creation, this being (L'ruk) being the true target. Then again, "necromancer" says it all. Death is a very fluid term with such persons. Go to Comment
Actually, I really enjoyed this, and mainly just because it gives plausible reason as to the existence of other gods, in that they are just 'Rhin' posing as them, yet still denies that the other gods are actual deities. Everything about this post is believable in a fantasy world. Go to Comment
Cults and religions have their place in all settings, but for the most part, the world's major religions ARE monotheistic. Thus, those striving for a realistic setting feel should have a major monotheistic religion of some sort. Go to Comment
Truth be told, that was the exact feel I was working at. When designing it, I wanted a religion that Christians could RP with and not feel bad in the slightest, as I find is the case more often than not with the lovely myriad of polytheistic pantheons in most settings. The religion holds true to the core ideals, yet adapts as needed to a fantasy setting. Go to Comment
Interesting read, but Pariah is right it does not lie far from the Judeo-Christian belief system which I think could be fun. It will allow you to explore a strong monotheistic presence in your setting and this way tie the setter closing to medieval europe. But since it isn't exactly Christian it will allow you more flexability in the rpg world. Go to Comment
A group of northerners want to bring the Old Gods back to the south. They grow cuttings from the white trees seeking the blessings of the Old Gods on the project, and when the saplings are big enough, they carve faces in them and secretly plant them in forests all over the south, to extend the 'reach' of the Old Gods.
The plan works of course, but the trees are *baby gods*, and behave as such when invoked.
