The Earth Mother, Spirit of Life

The living manifestation of the earth, Enia is the great sustainer.  When the world was made, she created Theras and made it her home. When life was first made, it was she who gave them spirit to animate and come to life. She created the animals of the world to inhabit the earth.

When she discovered her creation was dying in the wake of giving life to the young gods, she borrowed parts of the essence of the other Elder Gods and bound it into herself with a promise to return it when she did and then sacrificed her own life to give life to Theras, so that it might sustain the life already there. When Theras is no more, she will return to life to begin creation anew.

Enia is, in a very real sense, the living earth, albeit non in a conscious way. It is her essence that sustains all life, nurtures all spirit and makes the very earth itself come alive. Though she as not really worshipped, as she no longer exists as a distinct entity, her spirit is revered and received with thankfulness among all who value life.

It is likewise her spirit that imbues the world with magic and thus she has given her creations a gift beyond the control of the other gods to forge their own destiny.

Enia is revered most fondly by the Phaerie who sprang spontaneously from the earth following her sacrifice and in many ways consider themselves the collective manifestation of her person, dedicated to nurturing the spirit of the land she gave her life for.

This is pretty good. Nice ideas and a flow of reasoning but it doesn't give a lot of information.

Will Enia return one day? Do the other gods respect her for her actions or scorn her for her choice? I feel something is missing for me.

I voted on the set, not on the pieces. Since I have 23 votes today and nothing new to vote on (HINT), this shall be corrected.

A solid write up without going into tedieous detail. This is enough to give everyone involved a general feel for the diety. Sure there is a lot more you could (and should of gone into), this is about what most people would know, and players would want to know, about the diety. This is about the right size for a world pack write up. For that, you get a gold star.

The usefulness of this submission is really magnified by the other pieces in this set. As a solo, it would be, less.

Forgot that comment, and to vote on the last entry. Gah. I need coffee.

Castoria, Land of Shattered Stars

       By: Veretrix

Castoria was once a thriving and prosperous nation, a rich trade center for the surrounding lands. This all changed when, on one fateful night nearly a century ago, the Mist of Eternity rolled in and surrounded the land, obscuring more of the outside world as days and nights passed.

By the time the Mist blocked out the sun, a new light shone during what was assumed to be daytime: The Starpoint Spire, a mysterious place atop Castoria's highest peak in the northern-central region. Some say that there is some sort of building atop the mountain shining the dim "sunlight" onto the land, but it is only ever too bright or too dark to fully make out any structure, not to mention the mountain's immense height.

Not a month after the Spire's light lit up, the stars fell. Flaming rocks and debris from far-flung edges of space plummeted downward onto the eastern region of Castoria. Once the shower subsided, a strange energy from within the fallen stars transformed the eastern lands in what are now known as The Voidwastes, a barren gray land littered with craters and strange alien creatures (these can vary, but I had Pathfinder's Akatas in mind).

To the south, strange mechanism of eldritch origin are again at work after aeons of rest in the Ruins of Kchuthngnl, an ancient city of non-human creation that is estimated by scholars to be no less that five millennia old.

To the west, the once peaceful and serene forest, now known as The Plagued Woods, has been experiencing corruptions of the wildlife and humanoids living there. Some humans have reported creatures that appear not unlike a halfling, except that they can open their mouths to massive proportions to swallow creatures the size of an ogre.

When adventurers and citizens alike try to make an escape from Castoria, they are never seen again, and it is utterly unknown whether they found hopeful sanctuary or agonizing death withing the Mist's depths.

What is unknown to all residents of Castoria is that all of these events occurred because of the actions of a secret but powerful cult loyal to the Elder Gods who call the space between the planes their abhorrent home. The cult still lives on, larger than ever, and their plan is for the alien horrors to incubate and thrive within the dome of mist that now envelops Castoria, so that when the Elder Gods return as the cult's prophecy foretells, they will have an army of blasphemous creation at their disposal that they will use to make war with and enslave the denizens of the Material Plane.
