Typereligion lore

In the beginning, there was nothing but Chaos and the Primordials. Now is the time of Gods and Mortals.

- Athena, from a Plaque of Aphalur - "The God Era"

In the Dawn Era, works of Creation began to gain permanence. It was contrary to the ever-changing Chaos, and something that the lords of that system came to oppose. The masters of this system, the Primordial Lords, saw the products of Creationists as an attack on the status quo. Many of the heroes of the ensuing conflict came to be leaders of their kind, battling across worlds and systems.

In the God Era, the concept of Divine Power became better understood. The general idea was that you get mortal followers beholden to you, and in return you get status and powers. The more followers, the more power, and in return the Higher Power gets more divine power which they can divvy out to their priesthood as divine energy.
