This is part of a series on Arth’s Pantheon. Twice a month we’re taking a look at life on Arth and the gods that shape it. If you’re new to the series, get started with an overview. This post looks at the gods of the realm of earth, of stone and plants and harvest.
It’s said that the first gods that the Creator rose up were those who governed over the elements, and that the gods of stone and earth were the first among those. The gods and goddesses of stone and soil, plants and harvest are the eldest gods, and their leader is among the most prolifically worshipped deities in the world.
The gods of war, strength, and combat are different from the other gods. When the Creator raised up a number of Titans to become Arth’s gods, there was no realm of war. Battle hadn’t been fought yet, and Arth was free of violence. That changed when the demons invaded during the First War. At that time, Al’Thadan and Al’Matra raised four new gods and made them the rulers of the realm of war.
