This is an intro sub to a series of subs I'll be making in the future. It features a new religion based on the 9 Divine Ones and the 3 Exalted Ones. Now I would like to make one side comment. I made these guys up before I ever played an Elder Scrolls game. Lol. Anyway hope y'all will enjoy my little deities.
The nine Divine Ones created this world but not everything. However they are unaware of any other worlds other than the world of demons. It was the Exalted ones that created the universe, the dimensions, and the Divine Ones. The Exalted Ones are unknown to the humans.
The Exalted Ones created and nurtured the nine Divine Ones. They all developed different powers and personalities. After 3 millenia of life the nine Divine Ones were given a sacred task by their creators. They were to create their own world. When the nine of them combined their power they found it easy to create a planet of their own. They spread the seeds of life and then just left it there. The Exalted Ones came to check on them after another millenium had passed and were ashamed that the Divine Ones left the planet they had made. They told them to go back. The Exalted Ones nurtured the Divine Ones and in turn told them to create a sentient species of their own and to nurture them until they had gained the power to make their own worlds. They created the humans and began to each get involved in the world in a different way. The Exalted Ones were please and told them that in 10 millenia they would visit again.
The nine Divine Ones walked the Earth next to mankind for the first 500 years. However after they discovered what could happen to them(will be explained in Divine One Chrysani's sub) they only went down for short visits and watch over. The humans have learned to be self reliant, but still prayer to their creators. No official churces exist to any of them and so there is no priesthoods. However each has a building or set of buildings that is deemed favored by each individual ones.
It has been 3 millenia since the humans were born and since the Exalted Ones visited.
The Divine Ones do not pick sides in wars and rarely hold any human over another. They do not smite and only under very special circumstances will give powerful gifts. The humans are meant to one day grow to be on par with their creators as is the Exalted Ones' wish. All nine are on good terms, though arguements have recently started about how much they should directly interfere with humans.
The 3 Exalted Ones are the only beings with true omnipotence. While humans see the nine Divine Ones as all powerful, they are not. The 3 Exalted Ones everything except for Earth and its inhabitants.
The 3 Exalted Ones' names are: Desolation, Rejuvination, and Starry Skies. The 3 are energies with no physical being and communicate to the nine Divine Ones by telepathy alone. They are each representative of ideas. Desolation is destruction, chaos, power, and if an apocalypse would ever happen it would be because of "him". Rejuvination is life, healing, cleansing, and will be responsible for rebirthing a new universe if ever there is an apocalypse. Starry Skies is dreams, creativity, ideals, and will be made to create the first life to slowly rebuild the universe should there be apocalypse.
The nine Divine Ones are Hizeel, Kolou, Chrysani, Akiand, Prandomin, Thalamur, Transcendance, Zophura, and Calkamine.

I actually made this for a solely human world, however it can be switched over to a multi-racial world. Most of the subs coming with it will not speak of other races only humans.
