The Pantheon

The world of Paradigm lies in the Oliis’arah solar system, along with the world of Bastion, and both worlds and the system itself are served by a single pantheon. Unlike with many D&D settings, there is no separate pantheon for the different races, rather, all races and peoples worship from the same pantheon. The Gods of the Pantheon are not all powerful; they have certain significant limits to their powers, some owing to their very nature, and others because of self-imposed limits due to common agreements between the deities, most of which came about because of the First Godswar and Second Godswar. All Gods are equally powerful, unless they deliberately transfer that power to another being. They are not reliant on their followers for power, though all have a decided interest in the advancement of their respective causes.

One of the great mysteries of Oliis’arah is the exact origin of the system; neither the Gods nor any other known being can recall the creation of the present system. Rather, it was already formed when they became self-aware, or remembered being self-aware. This has lead to many theories about the exact nature and origins of the system, and of the universe itself. The Barrier is a key factor in limiting further discovery concerning these matters.

At the moment there are currently X number of deities, with the original number Y being reduced by 3. Two of them, Jolus and Vaksur, were killed in the First Godswar, while the third, Annlassi, has been missing since shortly after the Second Godswar.
