Gods of Arien
The Gods of Arien usually do not directly intervene in the mortal world of Arien,preferring to work through dreams, visions and the occasional true prophet. Rarely, under extreme circumstances, a God can create a physical manifestation of his or her will in the mortal realm. Those facets are known as “demi-gods”—powerful figures who are, essentially, a smaller fragment of their divine hosts. Because of an ancient, inscrutable agreement, those demi-gods are always mortal. Usually, if one demi-god appears, other demi-gods quickly manifest to keep the balance on the plane. Although they’d never admit it sober, some mortal priests—deep in their cups at the time—once joked that Arien is like a great game of Lhune to the Gods. But if that’s true, no one living knows what the objectives are.
