The Known World
Since the beginning of time, the world’s destiny has been shaped by distant supernatural entities with diverse and often mysterious agendas. In elder days, they clashed directly on the Earth, but they increasingly learned to use humans as their pawns. Many of the gods who once drew power from the beliefs of mortals have been displaced, but other entities have arisen to fill the gaps.
These gods form various pantheons:
Monotheism (Judaism, Christianity, Islam)
Olympian (Greek gods)
Aesir (Norse gods)
Celestial Bureaucracy (Chinese gods)
Great Old Ones (Cthulhu Mythos deities)
Manitous (Native American gods)
Orishas (African gods)
Devas (Hindu gods)
