Sonic - the God of Sound


"Did you hear that? He speaks to those who would listen. Simply adjust your hearing frequency and you will hear his voice." - Audicus, Disciple of the Sound Mind and Body.

The God of Sound has no physical appearance but is often depicted as a blue orb in when a visual referance is needed.

First there was Air, or was it Earth? or Water? Certainly not Fire. Anyway… Water beat on Earth and made sound. Soon Air whipped Earth and Earth fell into Water, then Fire burned up the Air. This all made sounds. This is what the god of sound was. Sound. The sounds of the elements battling for domination. Then there was Void. Void is nothing. There was nothing. The God of Sound was lost. He (or She) traveled through Void trying to make sound, but could not. Eventually sound found its way out of Void and the God of Sound now resides wherever he is needed.

The God of Sound is followed by all sounds, a few mortals and even some spirits that can make Him who he is. The mortals who follow Sound talk frequently and often take up an instrument. They learn the powers of Sound. Some, it is told, can even shatter things with their voice. The sounds who follow him are simple sounds like a bird’s chirp, or a pin dropped. Lastly, we have the Spirits who follow Sound. These are the spirits of things that make sound. Such as a fire, a falling rock, crashing waves, the blowing wind. Any of these can be considered Spirits of Sound, they serve him as do all sounds and few mortals.

His church is the Church of the Sound Mind and Body, His followers teach others to make use of sound frequently. Some can attune their listening frequencies to hear His voice, and others with his Blessing can shatter simple materials with Him.

Roleplaying Notes
When Sound is present… make the appropriate sound. Sound is everywhere and has no real form. If one has the power to see Him, he is depicted as a blue hedgehog whose feet move blindingly fast.

Well...interesting. I suppose someone had to do it, but I think you could perhaps have done a bit more with him...

Perhaps the emphasis was more on the silly part, where a god who requires his followers to make noise is just right. (Btw, check the if the freetext is right. 'Silly' is already okay; or will there be more subs with 'Sorta silly'?)

But rightly noted, there is more potential. For a start, you could associate the god with bards, or at least make them close to the clergy. More generally, anything related to voice will of interest to them. And voice is a powerful thing.

A fun (and useful) power for his priests would be to force everyone around to produce sounds. No change for most people, all those sneaky thieves will find it quite annoying. The more powerful priests could actually make creatures like ghosts produce sounds when moving; the eldest of them could be able to cure muteness.

And the list could go on.

The concept of a God of sound is an okay one - the myth of Echo, cursed by Hera to always have the last word, but never the first comes to mind.

I think this could have been a lot better.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
