LE - Malificius, Elf - Mage Deity

Domains: Artifice, Knowledge, Magic, Rune,

Subdomains: Arcane, Languages, Trap, Thought

Colors: Purple, Silver

Favored Weapon: Crossbow, Light

Malificius and his followers believe that Magic is a extremely powerful but chaotic & potentially destructive force, therefore only those with the intellect, discipline and wisdom necessary are worthy of wielding it, they strongly believe in the strictest regulation of magic, and aren't too fond of Sorcerers and those who receive magic through dubious and 'unapproved' sources (Pacts with Outsiders, Oracles blessed by other Gods, Witches & their Patrons), Malificius wants to regulate all magic, even the magic of other deities. He considers the Prime Elemental Forces especially to be fickle and ill-tempered, and therefore need to be tamed and controlled. Thus his doctrine is more about dominance over chaos and seeks to create a "magical" utopia in which disciplined wizards are at the top of the pecking order. As such, Maleficius, can be said to posses "good" intentions about using magic to improve the lives of people and expand his influence all over Etape.

Maleficius's churches serve also has collages teaching his ways to those seeking to learn the arcane arts as well as Vaults and Laboratories dealing with the assessment, and experimentation as well as the detention of magical artifacts and new magical creations.

Legends say that the continent of Typhon was formed when Darenthal cleaved the wings of a two headed dragon. Either on it's death or as a means to escape the warrior, it turned into the land mass it is today.

Darenthal is seen as the patron of warriors, Dwarves and an order of Monks. His embodiment of battle prowess, combined with the preservation of home and the perfection of oneself draw many to his banner.


N – Ambilika, Human – Exploration Deity

Domains: Community, Charm, Protection, Travel

Subdomains: Defense, Exploration, Family, Love

Colors: Orange, Yellow

Favored Weapon: Spear

Ambilika is fascinated by humanity's capacity for exploration and innate ability to adapt to many environments and circumstances. Thus out of respect for her tenacity and love of adventure, and once she ascended to godhood she was heralded by most as the patron deity of humanity. A hero goddess is what she came to be and is also regarded by many to be a fertility goddess reserved for humans. Ambilika took to this position with a sudden spark of furious ambition. She delights in the evident prosperity of humans as they expand their power and influence over others on Etape, even to the unease witnessed by her fellow deities, as they see the sudden uprising of humans and their formidable populations to be a sign of a potential calamity. Ambilika now sits as the divine embodiment of human expansion and growth, and adoptive mother to all humanity, with a fierce passion in the proliferation of mankind.
