The New Gods

The new gods are physical divine beings, direct offspring of Astrea and Ouranos. These gods rarely manifest in the material plane, choosing instead to select champions and grant boons to those they find interesting or worthy. Each god is a divine aspect of some physical location or ideal. As such, the average citizen of Alaraes worships each deity as needed, they may pray to Arwain before setting sail, Yorlan for creative inspiration, or Jov before the toss of the dice, hoping he will grant them luck, and blame any and all misfortune on Arkon.

Ignis the Divine Flame

Alignment: Lawful Good
Gender: N/A
Ignis is the first deity to be born out of chaos of pre-time. After Astrea and Ouranos sealed Arkon away, Ignis saw the lifeless void of the material plane, and felt there could, and should, be something more. Ignis breathed life into the endless void and in doing so birthed the gods and all life. Their followers worship fire, life, and the suns and their sigil is a stylized red-orange flame on a white field.

Yorlan the Collector

Alignment: True Neutral
Gender: Male
Appearing to mortals as a man in his middle years, Yorlan wanders the material plane searching for interesting mortals for him to observe and study. He is often assisted by 5 great elemental Wolves, one each of fire, ice, lightning, earth, & air, who act as his heralds. Those who worship Yorlan believe curiosity and science is the path to divinity, so they tend to be scholars. Yorlans’ sigil is a white quill on a red and orange field.
